DEE POTTER DEE POTTER

Take a short walk across the clifftop from Lóndrangar and watch your step. This basalt rock blowhole from the North Atlantic hundreds of feet below doesn't always make its presence known like this. A blowhole, also called a marine geyser, but less fun to say, is formed when sea caves grow inwards and upwards into vertical shafts and expose themselves on the clifftop, which results in hydraulic compression of sea water that is released through the port from the top as seen here during a gale-force windstorm. Quite a spectacle to see in person.
