The story behind the image

Split View

There are views all around the lofty heights of the You Yangs, even ones through rocks that look like they have been hewn in half by a giant's axe or a mighty lightning strike.

The predominant rock here is mostly granite which resists weathering well. The granite was formed from magma from a volcanic vent and contains crystallised minerals like hornblende and biotite (no I have never heard of them either, I looked them up).
