Puddled Reflections

Here’s another image from Little Cove in Bruce Peninsula National Park. The ripples you see in the dolomite bedrock are called conchoidal fractures. Conchoidal fractures are a curved breakage on the surface of the bedrock which occurs over time from the crashing of the waves. The resulting effects are ripples in the rock that create pockets of water.
