visited this area which is about a 4 hour drive inland from where I live.

a little info

14 metres high, and 110m long. 2700 million years old. The shape of the wave is formed by gradual erosion of the softer rock beneath the upper edge, over many centuries.The colours of the Wave are caused by the rain washing chemical deposits (carbonates and iron hydroxide) down the face, forming vertical stripes of greys reds and yellows. the rock has been converted in to a catchment for the town's water supplies, with a foot-high concrete wall around the upper edge of Hyden Rock directing rainfall into a storage dam.

Hello Julie!

Lovely photos, I think as a fellow Australian I am compelled to reply! (was v busy this week, didn't get much "web time" during the week!)

I think you've captured this amazing piece of nature very well. I've heard lots about it, but during my time in WA (western Australia) I did not visit it. And I have seen other photos of it. But I don't think I have ever seen any photos bring out the colours in the way you have!

Thanks! I especially like photos 1, 3 with the deep bright blue sky and the colours of the rock (ochres of orange, etc, as you described and gave the "reasons thereof" in your post!) They are great, also capturing the form (and size) of the "wave" well!

I also really like photo 6, for me the colours again, with that green grass surviving near the base of the rocks there being so special, it "makes" the photo for me. I'm curious though, why did you crop the rocks (both the larger one in the foreground to the right and the smaller one, more in the distance / background, to the left?) Maybe it DOES look better this way (rocks cropped)... but it leaves me curious of the whole shape of those 2 "standing rocks".

Thanks for sharing... I loved looking at these photos..

Paul
