This classic cliff section at Hunstanton Norfolk, provides exposure through the Lower Cretaceous Red Chalk and the underlying Carstone. These shallow marine rocks contain a rich fossil fauna including several species of ammonites. These rocks are normally poorly exposed, so the section at Hunstanton is of importance in determining the environmental conditions in which these 110 million year old sediments were laid down. Overlying the Red Chalk, is the white Chalk of Upper Cretaceous age (approximately 95 million years ago) indicating a period of erosion between the two units.

Superbe low POV in this impressing shot of these cliffs. The low tide has exposed some very interesting rocks covered in seaweed and that makes this composition really pleasing to look at.
have a great weekend

A great low POV, showing super detail in the rocks and kelp uncovered by the low tide. Impressive capture of the cliff face with the red chalk giving depth to the shot.
