Weekly Photo Challenge – Forces of Nature

Coolangatta Australia

Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta, Australia

 

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Forces of Nature.”

In Australia, a country aged by the wind, sun and sea, we see many examples of nature’s work and Forces of Nature.

I am drawn to the sea, as most of us are, who cling to the more hospitable coastal regions of Australia for hearth and home.

The limestone structures that survive, here on Australia’s southern coastline, defy wind, rain, tempest and frothing sea and are an example of natural endurance against the continual pounding of the ocean and are geologically, if not also aesthetically, interesting.

London Bridge – that fell down stranding tourists

The forces of nature – Something to Ponder About

About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    I love coastal landscapes and you have some awesome limestone formations here. Powerful forces of Nature, indeed, to create these. I should think those tourists were terrified when “London Bridge” fell down! Great photos,

    What marvelous photos. Hope you had a great trip down by the coast. Don’t know if I’ll be going down the beaches or coastal areas in Victoria anytime soon. Winter is coming and it can get quite blowy over there.
