The following photos are taken Sunday 19 September 2010, which is of course talk like a pirate day. They are super macro photos of micro slices of art/life, on top of a cliff, in tiny pockets of rock, hollowed out over time by wind and rain, and as on today, by constant vibration by wave pounding into the cliff below. Twigs and pieces of bark and stones gather in the hollows and form still life dioramas, to be seen by chance if one explores the hidden treasures found in splendid isolated pockets amidst the otherwise windswept bare cliff tops.
Just for fun we took a run out to Kurnell to perch on the rocky cliff edge at Pt Solander, and watch the enormous waves roll in. Pretty awe inspiring.
One of the things we were looking at today, and wondering just how secure is the supply of crude oil to the Caltex refinery at Kurnell, considering how the pipes seem to be held together with lots of black tape.
