Stained rose by the setting sun, a skein of clouds meets twilight over the Clarence River in New South Wales, Australia. Richard Craig—one of a slew of escaping convicts who crossed the "Big River" in the 19th century—is credited with its discovery in 1831. Surrounded by thousands of acres of gorge-carved wilderness, the river is a popular sporting area today.
