Caption: Stone runs, Falkland Islands. These rock formations have perplexed explorers and scientists for centuries. They were formed as the result of erosion of particular rock types through the processes of freeze-thawing and sorting. The rocks tend to be packed closely together, making for a stable platform that can be easily crossed on foot. These stone runs are near the hills of Two Sisters, East Falkland, the Falkland Islands.
