Hallett Cove Beach sunset, South Australia

Mar 20, 2018

After a year and a half on the road, it was great to finally come home and photography the beach that I grew up on. It’s a really interesting coastline with some amazing geographical importance and history.

A combination of 600 million year old Precambrian rock, and 270 million year old Permion deposits, make up this beautiful stretch of coast. Back when Australia was part of the super-continent Gondwanaland, glaciers flowed north along this area, carving rock formations and flowing up towards what now is central Australia. Some of the larger rocks on the beach originated hundreds of kilometres to the south, carried and deposited here by glaciers hundreds of millions of years ago.
