HY5508 : Otter Geo Archways

taken 6 years ago, near to North Halley, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Otter Geo Archways
Otter Geo Archways
Just out from the geo are a series of arches and fissures.
The rock structure enables sea-erosion to produce stacked columns. Some look very weak but have obviously withstood many years of onslaught
This arch is seen from above in Ian's HY5508 : Boulder beach with stacks and arches.
