SH5381 : Mushroom Rocks Again

taken 8 years ago, near to Benllech, Isle of Anglesey/Sir Ynys Mon, Great Britain

Mushroom Rocks Again
Mushroom Rocks Again
The headland here is covered with these curiously-shaped rocks, like mushrooms growing from the solid rock. They are the tops of sandstone-filled potholes like the one in this image SH5381 : Section Through a Pothole. The sandstone is more resistant to erosion by the sea than the limestone beneath, so it remains, protruding above the limestone where it has been eroded away. Geological hammer for scale.
