Another from Chillagoe, angles were difficult so were the kids
I`m truly amazed that no one has pushed this over, it stands about 30 feet or so and I have seen photos of it with a man standing against it from the late 1800s


Would have liked to go back in better light.
C&C welcome.

Very photogenic. Difficult to do justice with under harsh daylight. It is crying out for a polariser to darken the sky. Perhaps a lower shooting position and getting a bit closer with a wider angle might help.

you would need a big crowbar to push it over

Would make a brilliant advert for Gorilla Glue

Some more in Australia and around the world...

I once saw two rocks on top of each other that had worn down to about 6 inches high
