💛💛 WHEATBELT WEEKENDS 💛💛You think Wave Rock is huge from ground level? Well, how about this amazing view from the sky! 😮 We reckon it's time to get out and explore the Wheatbelt this weekend. 📷 @drone_landscapes
Australia’s most instagrammable drive including this place, regarded as one of Australia’s best beaches -Little Beach near Albany. I’ve put together a 14 day itinerary of @australias_southwest and @australiasgoldenoutback that will have you hitting beautiful spots but finding time to holiday too. It’s on the blog now - link in bio. Love to hear you thoughts and if you’ve been, suggestions on what we missed! Loved this region. And so much more of @westernaustralia to come. 💙 #seeaustralia#justanotherdayinwa

고렙 던전에서 가장 할만했던 문제.
꿈에서도 나왔다. 정말 풀고 싶었던 문제😀

— “Wave Rock, Hyden, Western Australia. One of Australia's biggest waves is also the furthest from any ocean - Wave Rock rises 15 metres above the outback plain and its 110m long. Wave Rock has cultural significance to the local aboriginal people who believed that the rock was a creation of the Rainbow Serpent, and was created in his wake by dragging his swollen body over the land after he had consumed all the local water.
To got this final image, first I did foreground shoot after sunset to get sharp foreground. Few hours later I started shoot stars and I spent doing this around one hour to get 125 shots.
The model on this photo is my lovely wife wearing her wedding dress.”

Well, we are lost for words 😍💫 Just when you thought Wave Rock in Hyden couldn't get any better, visiting it at night is a completely different experience! The star-filled outback skies enhance the amazing 15-metre high wave, making the rock the perfect spot to lay down, relax, and star gaze into the night 🌟 📷 @travel_herethere 📍 Wave Rock, Hyden, @WheatbeltWay@WesternAustralia@Australia

Un sunset en plein milieu du désert Australien. 🌅
Je rêvais de voir cet endroit, les teintes de oranges sont magiques en fin de journée ✨

Hyden Rock 🇺🇲, de la cual Wave Rock es parte, consta de 2,63 billones de años de biotita K-feldespato monzogranito que forma parte de Yilgarn Craton. Hyden Rock es un inselberg de granito, que consta de tres cúpulas. Las cúpulas central y occidental están separadas por un valle profundo, que ahora está ocupado por un embalse. Las cúpulas centrales y orientales están unidas por una plataforma baja. Un proceso de múltiples etapas de desarrollo de formas terrestres creó estas cúpulas. El paso inicial en el desarrollo de Hyden Rock fue la alteración subsuperficial debido a la erosión del lecho rocoso de granito debajo de una superficie de tierra laterificada durante el Período Cretácico entre 100 y 130 millones de años atrás. Dependiendo del grado en que se fracturó por la unión, el lecho de roca de granito que subyace en esta superficie se alteró a profundidades variables debajo de la superficie de la tierra. Este proceso formó "cúpulas" subterráneas de lecho rocoso de granito sólido rodeado de granito profundamente erosionado, relativamente suelto y desagregado.

Hyden Rock, of which Wave Rock is part, consists of 2.63 billion year-old biotite K-feldspar porphyriticmonzogranite that is part of the Yilgarn Craton. Hyden Rock is a granite inselberg, which consists of three domes. The central and western domes are separated by a deep valley, which is now occupied by a reservoir. The central and eastern domes are linked by a low platform. A multistage process of landform development created these domes. The initial step in the development of Hyden Rock was the subsurface alteration by weathering of granite bedrock beneath a lateritised land surface during the Cretaceous Period between 100–130 million years ago. Depending on the degree to which it was fractured by jointing, the granite bedrock underlying this surface was altered to varying depths beneath the land surface. This process formed underground "domes" of solid granite bedrock surrounded by deeply weathered, relatively loose, and disaggregated granite.
No filter: at Wave Rock we also found a pool of salt water and it was so salty you could float on the surface and read a newspaper without getting your hands wet (Felicity in the picture shot with the drone). A bit like the Dead Sea but here the salt concentration in the water seems to be even higher. This was a crazy and unexpected bonus of visiting wave rock and we have these amazing pictures in the middle of the Australian Bush! .
Senza filtri: a Wave Rock abbiamo trovato anche una pozza di acqua salatissima al punto che ci si galleggia e si può leggere un giornale senza bagnarsi le mani (come Felicity in foto scattata con il drone). Un po' come sul Mar Morto ma qui la concentrazione di sale nell'acqua è ancora più alta. Ma poi avete visto il posto dove si trova questa pozza? Pazzesco..
