Wonderful photograph. Looks like something you would see on a model railroad.

Of interest:

  • The bottom left: There are boards laid out for a walkway down to where the rubble is in the water. The only reason I can think off off-hand is possibly for fishing.
  • That rubble: Within the rocks the water is relatively calm
