Another of the popular attractions at Kalbarri in West Australia’s north is Nature’s Window. This must have been photographed dozens of times over the years. It is a bit of a climb to get to it but not too bad and it’s well worth the effort. We drove a few kilometres from the skywalk to this attraction. Later, we went on further to another gorge. You can see the Murchison River through the opening. Last time we were there we spotted some feral goats on the sides of the canyon. We also saw an echidna but we weren’t so lucky this time.

I have seen the pictures of this before. At the time my thought was, this is what needs to be studied for preventing floods and land slides. We can identify where exactly the force is going to be more and open it up upfront so that the water or air can go without flooding or causing any major damage. Stress and strain thing. And then I forgot about it, like many things. LOL. Thanks for reminding that once in a while I do get seemingly intelligent thoughts.
@JudyEv I am saying if there is a barrier, the pressure will build up more. And that could give in sometime in a big way. But if the behavior of water was studied, and all that came into its path to direct its flow, then we could create a hole like that window on some obstructions for the energy to dissipate. That way, the loss would be minimal.
