[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Sandstone cliff along the Cliff walk towards Tamarama. These cliffs are virtually the same as when seen by Captain Cook around 1770.

The parts of Sydney based around the harbour are built upon sandstone. This rock formed from sand that was deposited over 200 million years ago, at the mouth of a large river. Later it was uplifted and weathered into features, especially cliffs, beaches and platforms that are characteristic of sandstone along erosional coastlines.

Hello Murray
Good point of view and an attractive composition with fine lines!
Good light and fine details in cliffs and sea, good foreground interest and a nice sense of depth!

Hi Murray,

A good POV of the Sandstone cliff and of the Pacific ocean, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hello Murray,
Lucky fellow, Captain Cook.
It is a beautiful vista...
