AUSTRALIA 2013 #100

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Gantheaume Point, near Broome, is a most stunning and amazing place if you like rocks.

If you’re interested to see footprints of dinosaurs that once roamed in this area, this is the place. The fossilized footprints are located on the flat rocks 30 meters out to the sea but can only be seen at low tide.

The tracks are 130 million years old and extend in patches for 80 kilometers along the coast. If you have watched the first programme of Coast Australia on BBC2 (now available on BBC iPlayer), you can see those footprints along the Dampier Peninsula.

Great shots Jean-Noel. I am told that this raw,red and rugged state of these rocks gives a good indication of the hard country you were moving thro. Original settlers must have been some hardy folk!!GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
