Dragon's Head, Victoria, Australia

The Dragon's Head is an oddly eroded piece of the volcanic rock platform it sits upon. Such platforms are common in this part of Australia's coastline, but parts that look like a dragon's head are not.

The waterfalls on each side of the dragon's head appear as the tide is rising and waves crash over the ocean facing side of the platform. Once on top of the flat platform the water flows to the inland facing side and forms the waterfall. At this point one can't spend much time taking photographs without getting wet. The real danger comes from rogue waves that can reach three times the current wave height.
