You might want to be careful if you plan on trying to surf THIS wave. Known as Wave Rock, this 14 meter high formation shaped like a tall breaking ocean wave is located in Hyden, Australia and is believed to have formed over 2700 million years ago.

The shape of the wave is formed by gradual erosion of the softer rock beneath the upper edge, over many centuries.

The colors of the wave are caused by the rain washing chemical deposits (carbonates and iron hydroxide) down the face, forming vertical stripes of greys reds and yellows.

It is also worth seeing the rock at different times of the day, as the changing sunlight alters its colors and appearance.

I freakin' love nature!
