Remarkable Rocks, Kangaroo Island South Australia

big thank you to Hobbit-Dave, Vikram and Cathy for the wonderful awards on my previous photo.

The remarkable rocks are one of the best known icons of Kangaroo Island in Australia. perched 200 feet above the crashing sea, in the Flinders Chase National Park, over the western side of Kangaroo Island, the 'Remarkable Rocks" are a collection of enormous eroded granite boulders sitting atop a giant dome of lava, that has been shaped by the erosive forces of wind, sea spray and rain over some 500 million years. the golden orange lichen covering some of the rocks and the many different shapes offers tourists plenty photo opportunities at different times of day.

Very remarkable. Looks like some prehistoric flesh-eater, with that huge hooked beak, about to devour some tasty little bite!

Yes, the way that rock is hollowed out to look like an eagle's beak seems amazing. These may be well known, but I'm just learning about these now and am so impressed. Lava can do harm yet it can do wonders as well. TG
