In the south west corner of Kangaroo Island is a massive uplifted lump of granite, with tinges of red from lichens, within a sea of heath growing on what is mainly sand.
Wind and water have carved the rocks into strange shapes over the centuries with many pieces almost looking like human created sculptures.
Taken in the morning with a gloriously blue Southern Ocean as a back drop - beyond the horizon is Antactica, with nothing but ocean in between.
People included for scale.

I haven't been to South Australia yet, (only flew over Lake Eyre), so I may have to investigate it one day. Good to have this as a tempter. The 2 people adds scale. I've seen pictures of this before, but didn't realise it was so big. Tfs!

Your picture brings me back ten years ago when I visited Australia for the first time, including Kangaroo Island. Remarkable Rock is a stunning place and your shot shows well the beautiful contrast of green flora, red rocks and blue ocean and sky.

Hi Ian !!
I am back home after driving 23 000 Km in just under 6 months.Sorry that I was unable to keep participating in Trekearth for a while, I was on the move most the time.
This is a very nice image and I like the presence of people to appreciate the magnitude of the rock.I think that you need a compass to ascertain whether to rock is facing Antartica or Chile.

This is a really interesting POV. Whilst I've seen this rock formation before, I've not seen it before from this Point of View. Beautiful colours and contrasts and the sky and ocean are the cherry on the cake.
