The big structure in the middle right looks like the profile of big-nosed head of a statute. I think it resembles some of those statutes in Easter Island. According to Roger McAuliffe in his book "The Silent Faces of Hanging Rock - Stories, Myths and Legends", his likens it to resemble the French actor Gérard Depardieu.

Hanging Rock (also known as Mount Diogenes, Dryden's Rock, and to some of its traditional owners as Ngannelong) is a distinctive geological formation in central Victoria, Australia. A former volcano, it lies 718m above sea level (105m above plain level) on the plain between the two small townships of Newham and Hesket, approximately 70 km north-west of Melbourne and a few kilometres north of Mount Macedon.

Hanging Rock is a mamelon, created 6.25 million years ago by stiff magma pouring from a vent and congealing in place. Often thought to be a volcanic plug, it is not. Two other mamelons exist nearby, created in the same period: Camels Hump, to the south on Mount Macedon and, to the east, Crozier's Rocks. All three mamelons are composed of soda trachyte. As Hanging Rock's magma cooled and contracted it split into rough columns. These weathered over time into the many pinnacles that can be seen today.

This is the "Hanging Rock" proper. It is a solid boulder "hanging" between 2 other boulders. It is one of the routes to go to the upper levels. The moss growths on the surface make it look more textured and beautiful.

Hanging Rock contains numerous distinctive rock formations, including the "Hanging Rock" itself (a boulder suspended between other boulders, under which is the main entrance path), the Colonnade, the Eagle and the UFO. The UFO is naturally formed hollow rock, and small children can climb inside and poke their head out through the hole.

This was taken about 20 metres from the summit. The slanting Winter afternoon sun creates interesting shades and shadows and makes the rocks look warm and beautiful. On an overcast day the volcanic rocks are dark without direct illumination.

This was taken on a fine winter evening. It was close to the end od visiting hours. The slanting light looked warm despite winter was really here. This couple have been here harmoniously for many a millennium.

The featured rock on the right is also called the "Rock 'n' Roll singer of Hanging Rock" in a book "The Silent Faces of Hanging Rock - Stories, Myths and Legends" written by Roger McAuliffe.
