The Remarkable Rocks, Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
The Remarkable Rocks form fantastic shapes in Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island, South Australia. The Remarkable Rocks began as magma injected into a sedimentary rock layer and crystallized into a single granite monolith a few kilometers below the earths surface. Subsurface weathering cracked the granite along joint planes and created corestones. Erosion peeled away the surface and revealed the corestones, which were sculpted asymmetrically by the affects of rain and prevailing southerly winds.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
