Caption: Volcanic rock erosion. Close-up of volcanic rock that has been weathered by the sea. Cavities like this are known as Tafoni and are formed when granular rock such as basalt or sandstone is eroded by the sea. This is part of the Dragon's Teeth formation, a lava formation cut in teeth-like shapes by the pounding surf. Photographed at Makaluapuna Point, Oneloa Bay, Maui, Hawaii, USA.
