[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For someone coming from the landlocked country of Hungary, these tidal limestone rock formations on the north-western coast of the Adriatic island of Vir, Croatia, are extremely interesting.

In my mind's eyes, I almost see the action of the water over time: wave after wave, it jams into minuscule crevices, splits the rock, agitates the resulting debris, and thereby grinds all sharp edges into smooth, curvy surfaces -- but by the time this happens, new crevices form, and there goes another cycle of splitting and grinding...

It is the unending procession of these overlapping, simultaneous cycles that gives this coastal landscape such an interesting mixed texture.

Hi Attila, I understand what you mean when looking at limestone rock formations. New Zealand is a land of islands, and even here far away from the sea we have limestone rocks and fish and shell remains are found in them. And living close to the beaches and cliffs I see many different rock formations that have changed by the action of the water over time.
I do like your photo (it should have been noticed before by others), as you show the differing textures and colours very well. A good job! Thank you.

nice cracked rocks, TFS Ori
