This is a photograph of a wavecut platform exposed at low tide. The entire photograph shows an almost flat rock surface, with very gentle rounded bumps here and there. The sea is to the left and land to the right. No sand is visible and very few pebbles are in the imge. The overall impression is of a land surface consisting of just smooth rocks. The colour of the rocks changes several times, from a red/brown to a blue/grey. The colour changes were caused by baking of sediments when very hot igneous rocks were injected into the existing sedimentary shales.
