Potholes

Rock debris in the meltwater streams of ancient glaciers have carved these holes through the grinding force

Here a marvellous pack of seven potholes in an area of approx. 25m2 on this particular ridge

same potholes

largest pothole of this group is some 1.5m in diametre

same potholes

the smallest, yet, maybe 20cm in diametre

a pine

doesn't it look like an ent?

Orbicular rock

during the Ice Age a 2 to 4 kilometre-thick ice sheet pressed the Earth's crust downwards several hundred metres...

a lot of pressure!

besides pressure the weather's impact has been a great factor in shaping the surface of these rocks...
