These photos were taken near Seal Rocks, NSW.
It has been a place so special and sacred to me. Since I have come to live in Australia, I have been luck to visit quite a few of these spiritual places in the desert or coastal. It always shames and angers me to see traces of humans in form of rubbish left behind. It shows how careless we can be. That particular trip was also overshadowed by the heavy rainfalls wish resulted in detrimental flooding of parts of country NSW. It became very clear to me how much the flora and fauna was affected by these rainfalls with so much debris on the beaches and rain washing away valuable parts of forest and habitat for local wildlife.
