The incredible geology of Vestmanna Sea Cliffs

The majesty of Vestmannabjorgini (Vestmanna sea cliffs), Streymoy (Faroe Islands).

Known as the Vestmannabjorgini, these majestic sea cliffs rise up to 600 meters above the turquoise hues of the churning sea below roughly halfway between Vestmanna and Saksun, on the north side of Streymoy, Faroe Islands.
The cliffs are characterized by their numerous clefts and green blankets of luxuriant grass and mosses (sheep graze quite undisturbed on the clifftops).
The boats that sail here give an unparalleled view of the cliffs and the birds as they weave in between the numerous sea stacks and in and out the narrow straits bound by sheer rock walls and dark echoing grottoes.
These soaring cliffs provide safe nesting places during the summer months (May-August) for thousands upon thousands of seabirds, above all puffins, guillemots, razorbills and gulls.

Lake Ullswater, Lake District, Cambria. England (UK).

Ullswater is the second largest lake in the English Lake District, being approximately nine miles (14.5 kilometres) long and 0.75 miles (1,2 km) wide with a maximum depth of slightly more than 60 metres (~200 ft). Many regard Ullswater as the most beautiful of the English lakes.
It is a typical Lake District narrow “ribbon lake” formed after the last ice age when a glacier scooped out the valley floor. When the glacier retreated, the deepened section filled with meltwater which became lake Ullswater.
