I suppose we all have the classic railway tracks or endless highway, so I looked through some old photo's for something a little different.

Cool shot! I do have a question, do the waves ever splash into that pool?

I agree with what has been said and I, also, have a question. What are those vertical lines on the left side of the photo. One seems to pass through a rock and there is another to the right of the first.

Hi all and thanks for the comments,

to answer some questions this pool is about 4hrs drive from my home and yes at high tide in big seas the waves do splash from the rock shelf into the pool, it's quite common with these ocean side pools.

Carl the lines on the rocks are weathered cracks, my understanding is that they are ancient volcanic rock that cracks asit cools, I don't know what type of rock it is but the cracks are very long and mostly straight, I've been looking through old photos to see if I have one that gives a better view of them but can't find a suitable image.

There are some similar rocks with cracks not far from my home so when the weather improves (Yep rain,but no ones complaining, we are in drought at the moment) I might just have to make a study of these rocks and post more detailed images with them as the subject.

Thanks for the idea

David
