taken 4 years ago, near to Usan, Angus, Great Britain

"The Spindle on the Rock" Usan
"The Spindle on the Rock" Usan
Viewed from this position, "The Spindle on the Rock" formation at Usan bears a resemblance to the Great Sphinx at Giza and the giant heads or moai on Rapa Nui (Easter Island). Old though both those rock carvings are, they are predated by the naturally weathered features of the igneous rock of which "The Spindle on the Rock" is composed.
