Here is a little Pancake Ice off a 150 cliff on Grand Island Lake Superior. The ice is formed when chunck's rub against each other in the waves.

I took a photo when I was down in Woy Woy near Sydney earlier this year of similar looking formations ... but these were salt not ice. These ice ones look very cool.

This is a cool view and a nice shot but I'm SO with bambi on this...

As long as there is a safe way down...I'd try to get much closer for some close-ups.

That cliff looks walkable :)


Yes I'm kidding. Sort of.

Would have liked to get closer. Lots of loose rock on the tops. I'm not to fond of that stuff!

My brother lives near to this shot. I'll see if he has any close shots!




Now this looks cool Mad Aussie! Looks like the back of a beached whale shark?
