Tessellated Pavement, Australia
Tessellated Pavement sunrise landscape. A tessellated pavement is a rare erosional feature formed in flat sedimentary rock formations lying on some ocean shores. The pavement bears this name because the rock has fractured into polygonal blocks that resemble tiles, or tessellations. The cracks (or joints) were formed when the rock fractured through the action of stress on the crust of the Earth and subsequently were modified by sand and wave action.
