I was walking along a beach in Port Macquarie, New South Wales, looking to take photos when my attention was drawn to a cluster of weathered, craggy rocks amongthe relentless waves. In this photograph, I wanted to show the simple, undeniable beauty of the timeworn rocks and the magnificent seascape.
