Geology Picture of the Week, February 6-12, 2011: Anonymous Arch, and a Bonus
Flickr ^ | ?? | ??

Well, I'm slightly stumped. I lost the URL address where I found this (on Flickr - I just kept the URL for the picture itself). It's a nice sea arch, on the Island of Capri I think, but I'm not sure. So heck, if anyone can confirm that's where it's located, knock yourself out. Click for 2x.

BONUS:

I can't link to these in the grand tradition of the Geology Picture of the Week, but you can peruse them and save any of them that you like. Some of the lava lake surface pictures are very abstract.

Nyiragongo lava lake, January 2011


TOPICS: Arts/Photography; Education; Science; Travel
KEYWORDS: arch; coast; lava; ocean
I wonder how many coastal sea arches there are in the world, anyway.

Hey, no need to travel all the way to Spain. Just south of Port Orford, Oregon on 101 there’s a bunch of those! (or similar anyway.)

Do they count if they are formed from recent lava flow. I have a picture of one on the south coast of Hawaii, a result of Kilauea’s indigestion.

Excellent find, WSGilcrest. Sure wasn’t the island of Capri. How did you know?
