First Page of Selected Photographs


These photographs are all scans of 35mm negatives, taken at Hallett Cove Conservation Park, in 2000.

 

Photograph 1: View of Black Cliff



This is a view of Hallett Cove Conservation Park, from near the main south-western entrance.

I am very impressed with the subtlety of colours and tones captured in this scan.

 

 

 

Detail:



The chocolate-brown coloured rocks of the cliffs have been dated by geologists to have formed around 600 million years ago.

 

 

 

 

Photograph 2: Highly Eroded Surfaces Near The Sugarloaf



The Sugarloaf is a prominent geological feature of the conservation park. These highly eroded surfaces are fascinating.

Photograph 3: Looking North Along the Cliffs



This was seen from above a line of cliffs that extend along towards the north from Black Cliff. The features I was interested in viewing here are the wave-cut platform, and the beach.

 

 

 

Detail 1:


The beach, below the line of cliffs.

 

 

 

Detail 2:



The wave-cut platform of rock, below the line of the cliffs.

 

 

 

 

Photograph 4: Looking Back Along the Pathway Down To The Beach



To get down to the surface of the beach, I needed to make my way down a pathway that went down from the top of the cliffs, and then work my way along a creek bank towards the beach. There were lots of rocks scattered everywhere there.

Photograph 5: Orange Cliffs Just Before The Beach



The orange on these rocks is a collection of lichen that is growing over the surface of the rocks, in the sunlight, and in the clean sea air.

 

 

 

 

Photograph 6: View of Cliffs from the Beach, Looking North



The wavy lines of ancient jagged rocks which are part of the wave-cut platform, remind me of dinosaur backs with large plates used for warming in the sun.

Photograph 7: View of Cliffs from the Beach, Looking South



The beach of rounded stones is from an enormous amount of fallen rocks from the cliffs.

 

 

 

Detail 1:



The wave-cut platform of rock, below the cliffs, showing curves of layers of rock and various layers of harder jagged rocks.

 

 

 

Detail 2:



Thousands of layers of compressed sedimentary rock, all buckled and lifted, and now highly eroded.
