On the rugged coast a few kilometres south of Cape Naturaliste in the Margaret River Region Western Australia, a gigantic granite rock-island looms up out of the ocean.It is called “Sugarloaf Rock” because it looks like a sugarloaf, which supposedly has a conical/triangular shape like the rock . This towering, sea-scultpured rock that emerges from the Indian Ocean is one of the most photographed coastal landforms in the region. Sugarloaf Rock and the sometimes treacherous seas that pound it are best viewed from the platform. With its ever-changing colour, it is difficult to decide when it’s best to see it. Perhaps it is when the weather is stormy with crashing seas, perhaps it is when it is calm sunny and the water is crystal clear or perhaps the greatest sight is when the sun sets over the Indian Ocean and the colour of the rock changes every minute
This shot was taken back in 2010 and started editing and forgot about it . Recently found it again when cleaning up my storage drives and finished off the edit .
Taken with the Canon 5DMKII and 24-70mm F/2.8L USM Lens and Lee soft Grad Filters .

I probably put more time into this illustration than any other picture I've ever done. I knew I'd never pull off the illusion unless I got every single detail absolutely right. Not that I managed to do that! But I sure put in the hours trying.
