This is a close-up of the rock faces seen in the foreground of the previous photo. The dark grey discoloration on the exposed rocks in the water in the foreground makes one wonder if it results from a coal seam, as the similar discolouration does at Blackrock Point near Meat Cove, or is simply due to previous exposure to water.

These rocks are certainly rugged and look inhospitable to boats, though much the same could be said of the coast at Meat Cove and there was once a quai there in earlier days, so it does not seem beyond the realm of possibility that fishermen might have once landed or even lived here. Remote it is for sure, but also a place of extraördinary beauty.
