A split rock at Lekhubu Island,

Botswana.

 

Layer upon layer of limestone rock supports

Victoria’s,

Great Ocean Road.

 

By the time I read of these rock stacks along

Victoria’s Great Ocean Road

I’m sure many of the tourists who had created

them had returned and knocked down

their creation.

 
 
 
 
 

Balancing rocks in South Africa’s,

Kruger or Greater Kruger National Park.

 

Decorative rocks at the edge of

Warrnambool’s tourist lake,

Lake Pertobe.

 

Closer to home…in fact nearly at our back door…

well, about 10 km away…

…is Dog Rocks.

 

If I have asked why it’s called Dog Rocks,

I have not received a satisfactory answer. 

 

Dog Rocks is very popular with photography enthusiasts,

for both day and night photography

as it is far enough away from city lights

that no ambient light can intefer.

 

My final rock is/was Ayres Rock.

It is now known as Uluru.

Climbing Ayres Rock was almost mandatory in 1975. 

Over my left shoulder is another formation

known as The Olgas. 

Both are well worth visiting.

One bloke, four girls and guess who

is doing the work?   

Maybe he’s just the ballast!

I have stayed with the coast for this week’s

MidWeek Madness Challenge.

Hardly need to caption this image…but it is the 12 Apostles.

 

Gibson Steps beach…about ten minutes east of the Apostles..

There are many types of ‘waves’,

however, I am sticking with

my most photographed waves.


Some smallish waves near Gibson steps

which are near the Twelve Apostles. 

The rest of this week’s images were taken near…

…or at, Torquay beaches.

 

The waves were important in as much as…

 

 

 

…they gave my subjects…

 

 

…somewhere to play.

One of my favourite photos,

although I don’t think the surfer

would agree it was his best moment.
