View of Torrens Island

Once you've climbed above the steep section of Hogan's Track you get some pretty good views across the North and West of the Adelaide metropolis you thought you'd left behind. It's a multimedia presentation you partake of, as you stroll through the wooded uplands, because when you've got a line of sight you also have a line of sound - you hear the hum of the city when you see it. Then, when you lose the view as the path turns, you are returned to silence, bushbirds and the wind in the trees. Fantastic.
Here's one aspect of the view, Torrens Island. The two chimney stacks are where Adelaide's main (coal fired) power station is. This photo is from maybe 25 km, at pretty full zoom.
