AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Hole in the Rock

Pic by Gemma wiseman ~ This is a rock offshore from Brighton beach, Melbourne.
There is a distinct round hole in it partway up.
Would water weathering do this?

The hole gives the impression of an eye in the head of a great sea creature. Great photo.

i've always enjoyed spotting such markings in rocks. always makes one wonder how it was formed. great capture. hope all is well.

That's beautiful. We have similar formations on this side of that Ocean -- and we've been told that the holes are caused by erosion -- over zillions of years. (give or take a few)
