The lost ark of Legzira
This photo was taken in the southern part of Morocco, close to the city of Sidi Ifni.
Ephemeral art formed by the combined action of swell and wind, the arks of Legzira are mainly composed of sandstone and mudstone.
As a perfect illustration of marine erosion, the most beautiful ark unfortunately collapsed in September 2016.
