A stretch of the soft sandstone cliffs at Covesea. The erosion shows the strata of the laid down beds. Softer parts of the stone have been worn away to create amazing textures, sea stacks and caves that burrow deep into the hillside.
This is great texture !

This picture really shows of the bedding and slight cross-bedding so well. I think I've been here on a Geology field trip about 20yrs ago. Brilliant. Geology Rocks!

A remarkable shot of the layers and their "carved" look. Nature's handiwork is always so interesting. Great looking color and detail.

Un ciel couvert qui met en valeur par sa lumière ces strates géologiques qui racontent un large pan de l'histoire de la Nature...
Bonne fin de semaine lumineuse!

Rich in texture and colour, and the landscape must be quite similar to what I see around here too.
