The Pinnacles are located at the tip of Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island. About 360 million years ago, molten rock forced its way up from the earth's core. It cooled very slowly beneath the ground, forming the pinkish brown granite which is Cape Woolamai's foundation. The granite was exposed as the mountains above wore down due to weathering and wave action. The granite extends down to an unknown depth below sea level. The Pinnacles we now see are the result of cracks which formed as the rock was cooling and shrinking. They have been further sculptured by rain and wave action.

The texture of the formation is beautifully appreciated in the warm morning sun. The blue sea beyond and to the left is Bass Strait.

Phillip Island, also known as Corriong or Millowl in the Boonwurrung language, is an Australian island about 140 km south-southeast of Melbourne, Victoria. The island is named after Governor Arthur Phillip, the first Governor of New South Wales, by explorer and seaman George Bass, who sailed in an open whale boat, arriving from Sydney on 5 January 1798.

Phillip Island forms a natural breakwater for the shallow waters of the Western Port. It is 26 km long and 9 km wide, with an area of about 100 km2. It has 97 km of coastline and is part of the Bass Coast Shire.

This was taken on a fine summer's morning. Looking beyond the horizon is Bass Strait. The Cowrie Patch Beach with exposed rocks, together with the onshore rushing waves all help to constitute a picturesque serenity.

Cape Woolamai is located at the south-eastern tip of Phillip Island, just a few Km from Newhaven. It is named after the very distinctive landform that consists of granite cliffs and golden beaches.

Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada and the United States; more specifically, between the province of Ontario and the state of New York.

Accordding to information from the Niagara Parks :-
• More than 168,000 cubic metres (6 million cubic ft.) of water go over the crestline of the Falls every minute during peak daytime tourist hours.
• The average fall from Lake Erie to the beginning of the upper Niagara Rapids is only 2.7 metres (9 ft.)
• The Canadian Horseshoe Falls drops an average of 57 metres (188 ft.) into the Lower Niagara River.
• The crest line of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls is approximately 670 metres (2,200 ft.) wide. The plunge pool beneath the Falls is 35 metres (100 ft.) deep.

This is seen on board a cruise boat "Hornblower" originated from the Canadian side. Below the rainbow arc in the left is part of the American Falls, while the left arm of the Horseshoe Falls is briefly highlighted by sunlight peeping through cracks of thick misty clouds.

The Big Prawn is about 4 metres tall and is constructed in fiberglass. It is located outside of the Ningaloo Visitor Centre and is one of Exmouth’s quirkiest attractions.

The Big Prawn Located in the centre of town the Big Prawn pays tribute to the prawn fishery and the Kailis family who were influential in starting the industry in Exmouth. The Big Prawn once stood at the entrance to MG Kailis Gulf Fisheries factory at Learmonth and was donated to the town of Exmouth by the Kailis family in 2013.

Exmouth is a town on the tip of the North West Cape, and is 1,270 km north of Perth and 3,300 km south-west of Darwin. Many kms before reaching and after leaving Exmouth along the Learmonth Minilya Road, numerous termite nests can be seen adorning the otherwise bleak landscape. This image was taken near the Exmouth Communications Towers. The two mounds here are about 5 foot tall.

Mound-building termites or just mound builders are a group of termite species that live in mounds. This group of termites live in Africa, Australia and South America. The mounds sometimes have a diameter of 30 metres. Most of the mounds are found in well drained areas. Termite mounds usually out live the colonies themselves. If the inner tunnels of the nest are exposed it is usually dead, however, sometimes other colonies occupy a mound after the death of the original builders. (Sourced from Wikipedia)
