View of the Pinacle of a Vulcano, Isla Bartholome, Galapagos

Similarly as Hawaii the Galapagosinseln have so-called "Hot Spot", magma that forms underwater volcanos forms, which become in the course of millions of years islands. The Isla Bartolomé, with its rock like a menhir, is one of the most famous motives for photo of the Galapagos Islands.

What is a pinnacle? Pinnacle are from stone made, slim, pointedly running out little towers, which are part of the gothical architecture. In addition of their aesthetic function they have also a static, because they stabilize the construction by their weighty. Pinnacle consist usually of four or octagonal body... :-)

If you would like have a look to the workshop for another pic.
