Tribune Bay Sandstone

One of the most picturesque bays in BC waters, it can be mistaken for semi tropical on a hot summer day.

It is equally remarkable for some sandstone formations along the eastern shore. In the evening light these eroded patterns stand out in sharp relief, in some ways strangely macabre, but amazing to see. Enjoy!

Excellent photos Ron, I have seen these a few times on my infrequent stops at Hornby Island and your camera has captured them at their best. Hornby Island is a fascinating island and this is only one of the interesting oddities of this island. Thanks for sharing these photos, a little maple syrup and this stone may be edible.

curious

Very curious indeed. It makes me wonder what phenomenon would cause these. Perhaps the remains of ancient ant colonies that filled with harder materials before being covered and then uncovered thousands of years later?
