Aldinga Cliffs: erosion

Whilst driving back to Adelaide from Victor Harbor yesterday I decided to stop off at the Star of Greece in Port Willunga, walk along the Aldinga beach with the poodles and take some photos of the cliffs east of the remains of the old jetty.

I was returning to an area that I’d started to explore last year with big views of the coast using the Linhof Technika 5×4.

This time I was looking at the base of the limestone cliffs to represent the erosion–the eroding cliff base caused by the wave action from the high tides and storm surges. This erosion will continue due to the rising sea levels caused by climate change.
