Images of a Big Island

A Dynamic Landscape.

24 04 09 York Sd 008-Edit-Edit
Even though the Kimberley is an ancient landscape, if you look closely, it resembles a stack of loosely piled dominoes at times. Huge rock slides and falls are commonplace and you get to thinking that a decent earth tremor would bring the whole show tumbling down!
Around the tidal level, the sea has carved some amazing sculptures into the sandstone that makes up this land/seascape.
This was one I found early one morning in a place called Yorke Sound. I only had a short time ashore and was surrounded by some surreal rockscapes. I can well understand how the aboriginal people revered this land!

    How the heck does that get created! I guess the answer is…time, a heck of a lot of time.

  3. The technical name for it is ‘carpark erosion’ caused by water eating away the softer rock over lot’s of time!
