Image Description: Offering a lesson in geology, besides being simply beautiful, this photograph gives us a glimpse of a small ocean wave flinging itself up the shoreline as the tide rises. Cut on a rough diagonal, we see a section of pebbles on the bottom, with the frothy wave on top, making for a deep contrast of colors akin to black and white. The stones themselves are as a smooth as can be, all thanks to the very same natural function that we’re given to witness in the photograph: water erosion. The moving water has smoothed the once-rough rocks into small eggs of stone, each varying in size and shape.
