Kangaroo Island, SA, Australia

A part of the coast line at Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island, SA, Australia.  The red was totally awesome!

My husband finds a great way to get up close and personal to these amazing red rocks!

This photo was taken when it was getting dark...a bit challenging without lighting!
The walk-way leads to a bluff area where the 'little penguins' come ashore after dark.
They have nests on the bluff where their young patiently wait to be fed!
Unfortunately, we didn't see them on this particular evening but we did enjoy seeing several wallabies hopping around nearby...what a treat!

...another very low light image of the very red rocks at Penneshaw.

The next morning we left for the southeastern end of the island.
This is "Remarkable Rocks" located within the Flinders Chase National Park.
What amazing color and views of the Indian Ocean!

These two guys were enjoying the view!

My husband, Jerry, and I also loved the view!

 Farewell to a fabulously scenic place!

You can see the dome shaped formation where the "Remarkable Rocks" are located...just beyond the far end of the beach.
We spent several hours in this area and loved every minute of that precious time!
Kangaroo Island is a GEM of a place!

Kangaroo island I believe is the worlds best kept secret. I hope you found it to be everything you hoped for and more,if we all spread the word more people can enjoy this Absolute Paradise of unspoilt wonders. It is a mission of mine to promote Kangaroo Island and everything it has to offer including "Remarkable Rocks" windswept natural formations millions of years old, "Kelly Hill Caves" some of the best underground crystalline formations, spectacular, "Flinders Chase National Park" up close and personal with Kangaroo's,Koala's and other Australian Fauna, Much much more to see and do. I have a website promoting Kangaroo Island and all it has to offer with the very best tour guide and company on the Island to show you at it's best, including a superb map of the Island. for all the information on this wonderland.
Very best regards Steve

Every shot is just beautiful! I love the last one where the shore and sky are mirror images!

I really like the "Remarkable Rock" shot. I like how the geometrics play in the foreground and the horizon in the background closes the deal. Excellent find!
