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.

This is also really beautiful in a calm, somber way. Interesting info regarding the tessellations and how they were created. A real nocturne.

Beautiful capture and great info on it :) I've seen this before, while it was just below the waves, and it was super creepy =P

That so reminds me of the monoliths in 2010. How they all link up to one huge block before turning jupiter into a sun.
