[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pursuing yesterday's post on the power of the sea.. Here is another stunning example where water is shaping through erosion the cliffs on Prince Edward Island. This particularly feature is affectionately known as the elephant's ear. It is an easy walk along the beach to get to it.

Hello Yves
You're bring back memories here. Darnley Beach was one of my favorite beaches when I live in PEI. I can still hear the waves crashing against the shore. I was stung by a jelly fish at Darnley...hurt like heck.

I love the rock formation against the blue sky. A nice composition of ocean, waves and the gorgeous dark red rock and earth.

Hi Yves,
If you wrote that you took this photo somewhere in the middle east or Africa, I would have believed it. I didn't know that these color rock were also this far north. The wind and water created some wonderful shapes and I can see why it is called Elephant's ear. Looking at the size of the wave and water drops, I think that this rock looks bigger in the photo than its actual size. Nice composistion with good details and exposure. The photo could use some more contrast, and it has a dust spot visable.

I too am surprised that this is PEI... but there it is!! It is quite a dramatic arch and as frail as it looks probably won't be there much longer! Thanks for sharing such a sharp image of this coastal phenomenon.

Hello Yves,
What a fantastic view of these interesting eroded sandstone formations. I expect the waves are rather high here at times. I like your POV and the light and colours are beautiful. Fine sharp details too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Yves!
What a great panoramic view for so interesting and original rocks! I like their shapes a lot! The process of erosion made a wonderful work in this place, and you showed us the final result :>
Thank you for showing this interesting place!
Greetings from Poland,

Nice work on this great shot.
Look more like a cup of tea full of sugar to me.
Thanks for sharing.
