Cathedral Rock by Michael John

Located just north of Kiama at the southern end of Jones Beach, this distinctive rock formation, Cathedral Rocks, has lured sightseers since 1890.

These volcanic rocks, while intensely hard, have many joints. These joints have been eroded for many years, leaving these mysterious rock formations.

This particular formation does look somewhat like a cathedral. The additional rock platform, crashing waves, and grey cloud formations added to the eerie atmosphere.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
