Antarctic erosion

Antrockerosion

These old granite rocks were scoured by ice sheets, sand-blasted by Antarctic winds, corroded by salty sea spray, torched by the sun, and pooped on by skuas.  I think these rough conditions have shaped them beautifully, like the face of someone who lives on the sea their whole live (minus the pooped-on part).
