According to wikipedia, "Rock-cut basins are formed by the action of fast running water currents that cause small boulders to move in a circular motion or Vortex. The friction created by these kolks propelling small boulders in a circular motion erodes the natural rock substrate to create concavities called rock-cut basins, that increase in depth and circumference over the years. One or more rounded stones may be found within them, often of varying sizes as these stones also wear away with the physical abrasion effect."
I found this one on the beach at sunset at Barwon Heads with macondo, skippy007 and daddo.

Hello Steve - This is the kind of subject I like and you have taken your shot under some good warm light. The details and shapes of the erosion actions have been beautifully captured and one can marvel at the forces of natural energy. Super shot. Have a great week Rosemary
