Such metallic colour, Larry
Larry Bliss: It's a very impressive sight...
Every pock hole would be a delightful cubbyhole of a home for some tiny creature, Larry, I'm sure.
Larry Bliss: They would be disturbed only by nosy photographers...

Fascinating. Can you imagine million of years ago, this was hot and bubbly stone, making all these pockets...and the erosion is doing the rest. (I think)
Larry Bliss: I wish I had a time machine...
what water can do to the surface, amazing
Larry Bliss: Given enough time, anything can happen...

Oooerr.. I thought at first it was an enlarged microscope view of a slice of someone's liver smile The water in limestone can creat some amazing caverns oveer the centuries.
Larry Bliss: Anyone's liver in particular? smile
