Sydney Trees and Rocks

13th posting of photographs of Sydney August, 2015

Rocks thrill me and I love trees. I studied geology and worked as an environmental educator so when I travel I always pay attention to the inorganic as well as organic features in the environment. Here are some of the sandstone formations, eucalyptus trees, and fig trees of Sydney, Australia.

    Really enjoyed your sandstone formations here, Sherry Lynn, espec. the Bondi to Bronte Coastal walk. 😀

    Nicely captured rock photography, and cool pores on those sandstones or limestones, have no idea which one it is :-). What is the right name for this? Also loved the grand tree with the 2 walking the park

      Glad you liked them. The formations are sandstone that show the sedimentary layers in banded colors. Wind and waves erode the sandstone and the variable strength of the cemented granules creates the honeycomb look.
