Remarkable Rocks

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 5 March 2017 in Landscape & Rural.


We spent the New Year in 2017 on Kangaroo Island just off the coast of mainland in South Australia. It was a great place for us to get away from civilisation and we spent most of our time there on the more rugged west end of the island.

The feature that I set out to photograph especially, was a group of boulders called the Remarkable Rocks in Flinders Chase National Park. For three days I drove each morning and evening through a winding road that leads up to the rocks, hoping for some glorious golden hour light to eventuate. And for three days the sky was almost fully covered with clouds. My best options was to try and come up with some creative compositions to mitigate the lack of interesting light.

This specific group of rocks was a little on the west side of the main boulders. I was able to get some good cloud movement through a long exposure and I also looked for interesting patterns in the foreground to lead in towards the rocks.

It is a place that I would definitely like to re-visit in the future, hopefully with a bit more sun shining through for a colourful sunrise or sunset.
