In the summer of 2009 I took this photograph of one of the markers lining the cliff-top path, near Cala del Aceite, which stand like skittles on a conveyor belt. This Atlantic coastline is exposed to extreme weather conditions at certain times of the year. It is battered by storms and also subject to torrential rain, meaning the cliffs are similutaneously undercut and washed out to sea.
