The photo above shows the results of a single stone's turnings and twistings behind a waterfall over hundreds, maybe thousands of years. This formation is referred to as Döda Fallet or the Dead Falls and is found near Jamtland, Sweden. In 1796, the Indalsälven River broke through its banks and cut a new channel, bypassing the former 35 m (115 ft) rapids, leaving the rocks behind and beneath the falls high and dry. The hole in the rock wall above is approximately 0.7 m (2.2 ft) in diameter. Photo taken in June of 2006.
