Limestone Pavement, Lough Mask. A new plate

April 26, 2017

The limestone shoreline on our side of Lough Mask looks like a pavement made from slabs of exposed rock, the blocks separated by narrow, shallow fissures.  When the winter floods sink back, the lake leaves a thin film of white silt which settles into time/water eroded sharp-edged small holes or cups in the limestone. Chunks […]
