We were delayed about 40 mins on our drive towards AZ because we kept stopping to stare and take pictures of these rocks. I can't get over it! We're not used to the landscape so we just stare with wonder 🌌
💬 "One morning off South Bruny …
Cast from a mould of softer rock long since eroded, Bruny Island’s breathtakingly rugged east coast is a priceless relic from a vastly different time and place. Born of ancient geological turmoil, its once molten dolerite now forms some of world’s hardest stone and tallest coastal cliffs.
I first travelled here earlier this year, ‘though poor research saw me arrive with a lens far better suited to distant wildlife than majestic scenes such as this. So it was genuinely exciting to have an opportunity to return so soon, and suitably equipped.
I was tempted to post a similar image that included a small boat simply to provide a reference for scale. However I decided it’s preferable to see it this way, exactly as it might have looked a million years ago. ⠀ ⠀
Bobbing in the shadow of towering jurassic cliffs that soar from a dark sea to a brooding sky inspires a mood that can’t be stored, transported or replicated. I’m fine with this; it’s yet another reason to return.
