Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

 Flowerpot Island

Flowerpot Island, Tobermory. August 2017

This past summer, we took a trip up to Tobermory in northern Ontario.  One of the highlights was to see Flowerpot Island, an island featuring “flowerpots” where the water has met the land and gradually weathered the rocks of the island that broke away to become a solitary standing ‘flowerpot’.

It wasn’t until reading one of the touristy signs near this big flowerpot (there were three there) that I learned how these natural sculptures were made through millions of years and only by the strength of the water from the lakes.

Here’s the sign that explains the process:

  1. I’ve seen similar formations in the American Southwest. I always wonder how long they’ll stand.

      I guess it depends on how erratic Mother Nature behaves.. especially these days when we have seen such drastic changes in weather patterns and will probably continue to see more of it in the coming years.

  8. A great choice for the challenge. Thanks for including the infographic on the history of the area. Mother Nature is something else.

    I love how nature creates things of beauty by just washing water over rocks! I’m sure you saw even more wondrous sights. Thanks for sharing this post!
