Polygonal basalt columns, caused by  the peculiar cooling of lava, made famous by formations such as The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, can also be found in Australia. This particular formation is at Bombo, just north of Kiama (famous for its blowhole) on the south coast of New South Wales. #rocks #rockformations #newsouthwales #australia #basalt #lava #kiama #bombo #rockpool #rockpools #southcoastnsw #southcoast #tranquility #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #coast

Under construction, coming soon. The weird though everyday wonder of pregnancy. The evolution of life to this level of complexity still stuns me.

Not the sharp mountains of elsewhere, however stunning in its own way, the breathtaking but relatively flat topped Blue Mountains of Australia. Massive sandstone deposits, since slowly weathered and eroded, only 2 hours by car or train from Sydney city centre. Truely deserving of its world heritage status. This photo was taken from the extremely easy to access location of Govett’s Leap, Blackheath.

The grey headed flying fox is currently threatened. #bats #wildlife #australia #australiananimals #australianwildlife #batman #batcolony #panboola #pambula #sapphirecoast
