It is an interesting rock formation, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: You don't find it in many places, there are many plants that thrive in the cracks ( Grykes ) Ray.
Great shot - those red coats certainly placed themselves well! It's an amazing thing - those Grykes are so deep!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Elizabeth, they did! Some of them must be a couple of feet deep at least.
Attention de ne pas se tordre les pieds.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Martine, its easy to fall in between the stones.

These limestone pavements are spectacular. There is one on the Heritage Coast at Southerndown in South Wales where one of my sons lives
Frank L Croston.: That they are Elisabeth, I didn't know there were any in Wales.

I mentioned earlier in the week about my first view of this area whilst carrying my worldly goods.; me and my goods nearly fell over the edge of the cove when I kept slipping on these lints. These days, I'm further back of the edge.
Frank L Croston.: Very wise, Alan. Its a long way down......
Magnifique photo !
Un endroit rocailleux interessant
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Claudine, indeed it is.

Intriguing landscape and a unpredictable sky above. Nice composure.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Andy.
I've always wanted to see this Limestone Pavement,I seem to recall learning about it at school in Geology lessons, a favourite subject of mine.
Frank L Croston.: Its not going to move soon Brian smile get up there. I'm sure you would like it.
I wonder if it is classified as tesselated pavement?
Frank L Croston.: I don't think so Mary, these are all very uneven and irregular, made of Limestone.

the clouds look good, as do the rock surfaces, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: They both were, thanks Ayush.
