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.

vulnerable

exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed,
either physically or emotionally.

All along Victoria’s, Shipwreck Coast, nature has

been hard at work eroding away coastal limestone

to create the 12 Apostles, Lochard Gorge and

London Bridge (now called London Arch)

 

Now, that same force of nature is working

to topple all of its hard work.

Around 25-30 years ago London Bridge

(now called London Arch) toppled

and detached from mainland Australia.

More recently another of the Apostles

fell victim to the ravages of Mother Nature…

 

…which is probably why we can no longer

walk out to the end of this Apostle.

Commencing with the

Million Dollar View

at Banff in Canada.

A bit closer to some is

New Zealand’s,

Mount Ruapehu

on the North Island.

One of my favourite Australian views.

Since 2005 we have lived much closer to…

 

…Geelong’s Corio Bay.

 

In no particular order…

…these are but a few of my sunrise images.

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

Silent-Sunday-Loch-Ard-Gorge

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

First one last image of the 12 Apostles.

Back in days of yore, visitors were allowed

to walk out to the very end of this Apostle

which is still joined to the mainland.

Maybe after London Bridge collapsed

barriers were erected here

to keep visitors safe.

Loch Ard Gorge from ground level.

…and in the Gorge.

I have never felt so disinclined to walk around

the Gorge as I did on that day.

I was wondering if I would be able

to climb back up the steps so

oppressive waas the heat.

Radio was stating 44 degrees Celsius that day.

On the sand, out of any breeze,

your guess would be as good as mine.
