I’m no geologist, but rocks have fascinated me for quite some time. I love how they are completely created by the changes in nature. The following rock photos are mainly from Australia, which ROCKS (sorry, pun intended) in terms of cool geological formations. In earlier posts, I’ve included photos of Uluru, which is magnificent and magical, (and also here) so I’m focusing on some other very cool rocks this time. The above photo and the next three are of the Remarkable Rocks in Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.

It almost looks like a stegosaurus was buried in sand. The pinnacles have such a mysterious appearance it wouldn’t really surprise me if dinosaurs were part of their makeup. © Stephanie Glaser (2010)
