I went on a walk in the northern part of Royal National Park along the coastal track from Bundeena to not far south of Marley Beach. My aim was to photograph some nice wind eroded sandstone features.

The area south of here has  some nice rock patterns. I had to wait a while for the light to be good for photography however.  It was unbelievable that in an area as beautiful as this that some idiots had carved their initials into the soft sandstone. A great shame!
