Tessellated Pavement, Tasmania. AUS

A tessellated pavement is a rare erosional feature formed in flat sedimentary rock formations lying on some ocean shores. The pavement bears this name because the rock has fractured into polygonal blocks that resemble tiles, or tessellations. The cracks (or joints) were formed when the rock fractured through the action of stress on the Earth's crust and subsequently were modified by sand and wave action.

Just beautiful. I love the light on the distant rock islands which give a focal point to the composition while defining the space between sea and that sky with the gorgeous watercolor look to it. You are a magician with long exposure photography, no doubt about it!

No problem, am happy to watch what you post! Am probably far to voluble but I always appreciate all comments, but comments that are more than two words are even more appreciated so I try to do the same for others.
