Sometimes you have to look the other way

There’s a place on Kangaroo Island called ” Remarkable Rocks”. They certainly are remarkable as you will see over the next few days.

Sometimes when you’re faced with images that are so iconic, it is easy to miss something else just as incredible. On my first night in Flinders Chase National Park I went to take photos of the rocks. I has set aside the entore evening to explore and get some shots as the sun set. If I had stayed focused on the rocks and hadn’t looked around, I would have missed the image below. These are the cliffs leading down to the ocean looking back towards the road that brings you down to the Cape de Couedic. The wind was blowing hard and the ocean mist was traveling up the cliffs. Quite amazing to see first hand and I did my best to capture it. How do you think I did?

      Wow! Thanks John – that’s great to hear. Thanks for the support.

      Perhaps this is something to spend your Korinek Photography coupon on (no I haven’t forgotten about it). :)

  2. Stunning result! I can’t imagine your reaction when you saw that.

      Thanks Rick. I can’t remember if I fist-pumped or not, but I was definitely excited when I saw what was happening down that coast.

      I was pretty engrossed in it for a while, since the movement of the mist up the cliffs looked amazing. You’ll see over the next few days that there was a lot more for me to photograph looking the other way to Remarkable Rocks.

    This picture is going on the wall in a prime location at home. I received this from Matt Korinek just last week & have it framed already. Its stunning. The quality of print on Endura Metallic paper is fantastic. It really does bring out the detail.
    A huge thanks to Matt. Take a look at his blog & all of his stunning photos. You will NOT be disappointed. He really is an amazing photographer that is a real inspiration.
