Photographer's Note

It was a glorious Autumn day when my friend and I visited the Victor Harbor area a couple of weeks back. If you saw my fisherman photo which was posted a little while back it was taken from the beach down below. It is such a beautiful area to visit and we go there often. This is one of the views you have from the bluff.

The Bluff
(Rosetta Head)

This prominent headland is formed of granite. The granite originated when magma was squeezed up from deep in the continental crust during the mountain building episode which occurred about 500 million years ago. This is known because sediments left by the ice age, which occurred at that time, rest immediately on top of it, and boulders of granite were carried, by the ice, northwards. The smooth rounded profile of the Bluff is attributed to the erosive action of this ice sheet.
