They really did have their “let’s give these places sensible names” hat on when these remarkable rocks were named. They are called Remarkable Rocks. If only everything was as straight forward as this!
They are on the western end of Kangaroo Island and are one of the islands most well known attractions. These rocks have been blasted by wind, rain, salt and summer heat for 500 million years. That’s a long time by anybodies standards. Now busloads of tourists (and me) add the erosion of feet to the process.
I’d love to be there when I did not have to dodge and weave around the crowds, and I’m sure the crowds thought the same about me.
What is not apparent in these pictures is just how windy it was. A significant storm system was moving up the coast and this was one of the more exposed sections. At times it was hard to stand up, let alone think about composition or exposure. (Well I was thinking about exposure – but of the hypothermia type!)

Fab pics Stewart!ReplyDelete
Great shots of the cool rocks.
Yes, what a luxury it would be to wonder about these rocks unaccompanied, perhaps sit in the fold of one of them and take in the energy. I especially loved your third photograph. Fascinating place and post!ReplyDelete
I love rocks, especially the wonderfully baroque ones you have shared here, Stewart. I still haven;t visited Kangaroo Island, but it's on my list!ReplyDelete
