Water-carved rock, Cap Brulé, New Brunswick, Canada

During stormy weather, the waves from Northumberland Strait carve the soft sandstone at Cap Brulé into interesting shapes. It's beautiful from the beach, but worrisome for those who have homes and cottages atop the cliff. Just beyond the rough grass at the cliff's edge is someone's lawn. When one of these pillars collapses, the lawn becomes smaller. The small holes along the top of the cliff are swallow nests, which add to the erosion problem.
