Colours, textures and patterns of sandstone formations at Pearl Beach


Today was a beautiful, sunny Sunday. I took my kids to our favourite beach. We go there not for fabulous waves of vast expanses of pristine sand but to explore. For me it is the endless variety of snadstone formations than span across Australian coastline. The rich array of textures and colours one can discover in the sandstone is simply stunning.

I’d like to invite you to see the “Rock Face” gallery.



There are few things I enjoy more than a day at the beach. I am not talking about public, overcrowded beaches like Bondi or Manly. I’m referring to 100s of natural beaches stretching along the Australian coastline. My family visits one of these on regular basis. There is stuff for kids to explore in and out of the water. A pair of sea eagles lives above in the bush, but I am yet to get a good photograph of them.

The beaches offer lots of photographic opportunities. Endless variety of sandstone rock formations usually draw my attention for their shapes, colours and textures. Today however, I’d like to present a creation done by my kids. For a better word I think I can call it a Sandscape.
