Caption: Granite coastline. Granite rocks at the top of coastal cliffs. There is also a thin soil which supports a few tufts of grass. Cliffs are formed as rock is undercut due to erosion, in this case by waves. Eventually the rock forms a sheer surface. Granite is a hard, igneous rock formed by the rapid cooling of underground molten rock (magma). Photographed at Land's End, a peninsula that is the southwestern-most tip of England in the county of Cornwall. The land is formed from 270 million-year-old granite which rises to a maximum of 61 metres above sea level.
