Photographer's Note

I know I have included a lot of sky in this image but my purpose was to show as much of the sun's ray's as possible. It was such a lovely sight as it changed rapidly in such a short amount of time.

Bluff Summit View, Victor Harbor, South Australia – The 360 degree view from the summit of The Bluff is one of Victor Harbor's most popular natural attractions. The Bluff, or Rosetta Head, rises 150m above sea level. It was used as a lookout point to spot whales in days gone by and still is today. Access to the summit is via a short trail from the carpark. The first stage is a strenuous but manageable climb for most. The second stage is more arduous. Views from all vantage points, including the carpark, where this image was taken from are captivating.

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.
