Photograph 8 - Cliffs at Hallett Cove Conservation Park


6000 x 4000 pixels, digital photograph.

These cliffs, that stand above a wave-cut platform, are made of buckled, layered rocks that geologists have found to have formed around 600 million years ago. The Hallett Cove Conservation Park is a fascinating and inspiring place to visit and walk around in. It contains many ancient geological structures, and yet every surface is part of the immediate moment.

I converted the original full colour photograph to a 'black and white' photograph (as if it was taken using black and white film and using an orange filter). This process felt appropriate for the subject matter.
