Weekend Wandering: Snapping Around Hanging Rock
On a very hot summer day we had a Social Snappers excursion to Hanging Rock, which is a rock formation out near Woodend, north of Melbourne. It is quite extraordinary the way it just sits there, almost in the middle of no where. It is of course volcanic, and there is a link there if you want more information about it. There is an Australian novel that is set there, and a movie was made of the novel.
It seemed very appropriate in a way that it was 36ºC. In the movie it was a hot Valentines Day that the girls had the picnic at Hanging Rock, and there we were the day after, struggling to climb up there ourselves in the heat.
I am going to just do a gallery of the photos, they all sort of look the same, but I have found the trailer for the movie, which could help set the scene. The sound track was very haunting.
For those of you who would like to know where it is here is a map.
Here is the gallery. Today is my wedding anniversary, we’ve been married for 25 years, which I gather is a bit of an achievement these days. We don’t have anything special planned at this stage, but you never know.
