Glasshouse Mountains Panoramic by Adam Gormley

Glasshouse Mountains Panoramic by 

The Glasshouse Mountains, about 70 kilometres north of Brisbane in Queensland. Volcanic plugs dot the landscape, the cores of extinct volcanoes that formed 27 million to 26 million years ago. The outer pyroclastic exteriors long worn away.

Captain James Cook on his voyage in 1770 gave them this name, because it reminded him of huge glass furnaces (glasshouses) back in his native Yorkshire, UK.

You can just see the Bruce Hwy in the bottom left of the shot. Huge Pine plantations cover most of the bottom of shot, and stormy skies the top. Taken 5pm, 29th November 2009.

Glasshouse Mountains, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.
