Ellison Bluff State Natural Area

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 9 December 2020 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Ellison Bluff features a densely wooded two-tiered rock terrace -- part of the larger Niagara Escarpment rock formation that stretches and winds though the site providing spectacular views from the bluff tops. Extending from New York, into Wisconsin and forming the Door Peninsula, the limestone-capped Niagara Escarpment was formed through sediment deposition of inland seas more than 425 million years ago and contains fossil-rich sedimentary bedrock. Over time, the soft rocks under a more resistant limestone cap wear away leaving bluffs, which rise 200 feet above the Bay's shore.

Ellison Bluff is owned by Door County and was designated a State Natural Area in 2002.

@lisl: It was warm with everyone in shorts. We were waiting for the sunset and here the sun was blocked (except on the water's surface) by clouds until..........tomorrow's photo.

It's nice that you provide details about some of these scenes. I find it quite interesting. I must also say that the moment this page opened up this image grabbed my attention. Absolutely beautiful. Because you framed it so well with the trees, I couldn't help but notice that 'spot' on the waters surface being illuminated by the sun.
