Waves - Flatrock 3

Waves - Flatrock 3

Today's photos were taken of waves in Flatrock on March 27, 2005 during high waves.
As you have seen over the past 3 days, the waves were huge.

When I see large waves like this I think of the power of water to erode the cliffs and it reminds me of a poem by Newfoundland poet, E. J. Pratt:


It took the sea a thousand years,
A thousand years to trace
The granite features of this cliff
In crag and scarp and base

It took the sea an hour one night,
An hour of storm to place
The sculpture of these granite seams
Upon a woman's face.

Comments are welcome!
