Devon Island - A Lesson in Erosion
The non-vegetated places of the world wear their geology on their sleeve. There's a vast quantity of freeze-thaw eroded rock in those slopes and clear evidence of sedimentary rock of differing hardness's at the top of the cliffs. There's even a seasonal river towards the left to emphasize the physical geography on show.
