Not the California I'm used to seeing. The rockstacks growing in the grass are intriguing.

In this country, the sea takes more than it gives, band there are ruins that can only be seen at very low tides.....and tales of lost church bells that ring out in storms etc

A marvellous panorama and accompanying image. Yes, coastlines can be quite dynamic.

Good images to show both the erosion of the land by the action of the sea and at the same time its uplifting by geological forces.
