Our World Tuesday - The Hazards

You may have noticed that I have a bit of a love affair with Tasmania.  I'd move there in a second - but there are very good family reasons not to.  So, I'll have to make do with fleeting visits and longer trips now and then.

This is the view over Coles Bay towards The Hazards.  The images in a previous post were taken from the highest point on this line if hills.

In the dim and distance past a mass of race was pushed up from deep within the Earth.  It found some weaknesses in the sedimentary stone above it and formed domes of cooling granite.  Over the long ages the over lying rock was worn away by time and even ice.  The domes, being made of sterner stuff resisted the hand of time and now stand clear of their overburden.  I think they look like the knuckles of  a fist, punching its way to the surface.

I could look at this view for a very long time.




When you swan in the water it was like you floating in nothing -  just being held up some unseen hand.  Its a remarkable place.

You can find more images from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Enjoy the pictures.

  19. Yes that is beautiful, but we have lots of seemingly "the same scenes" here. I bet there are also a good biodiversity in those rocks. I am so fond of watching marine animals in rocky shores like this.
