Sandstone, a timeless beauty that spans across the globe. From the picturesque Kingston Norfolk Island view, where it stands proudly as part of the restored British penal colony buildings and now a world heritage listed area. To the breathtaking sunrise with Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia, where this magnificent rock formation adds an ethereal touch to an already awe-inspiring scene. Traveling north to Dumfries, Scotland, we find Devorgilla Bridge gracefully arching over the River Nith. Its sandstone structure tells tales of history and connects us to a bygone era. Further east in Monmouthshire, Wales, the Monnow Bridge and Gate stand strong over the River Monnow - a testament to human ingenuity and architectural marvels. Across continents in Arizona's Vermilion Cliffs National Monument lies The Wave - nature's masterpiece carved delicately into red and yellow striated soft Navajo sandstone. As if painted by an artist's brushstroke itself, this work of art leaves visitors breathless with its intricate patterns. In Illinois' Garden of the Gods Recreation Area within Shawnee National Forest, towering sandstone formations rise majestically from lush greenery. A sanctuary for both nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike. The Birdsville Hotel in Australia's remote Outback echoes stories untold through its weathered sandstone walls since 1884. It stands as a voice waiting to be heard amidst vast landscapes that have witnessed countless tales unfold. Delving into mythology takes us back centuries ago when Sanskrit legends spoke of Yakshini – benevolent tree spirits guarding hidden treasures beneath our feet. A stunning sandstone sculpture captures their essence perfectly; reminding us of ancient beliefs intertwined with natural wonders. Heading south to Halls Gap nestled within Grampians National Park in Victoria offers panoramic vistas adorned with rugged cliffs made of resilient sandstone – standing tall against time's relentless march forward.
