15 Splendid Sea Arches on Planet

There are a lot of nature gift on our planet, therefore only the Earth planet in the universe which support life and filled with amazing views, created by nature from the earth surface evolved at the beginning till now with million years of evolving. Because of this factor, the top layer of our planet, built different amount of sceneries with different size, height and shape. Furthermore, we found  most of great things at the seas by the reason of every life is begun with water, also we can say that water is the source of life on our planet. Usually, we can see the beautiful mountains by the sea, nice beaches, incredible costs, cliffs, high and big rock with differ shape and size.

Rock is the hard material of the earth that support earth to be strong thing and the main material which combined to create new planet as well. We often find rock everywhere in the world and formed into different looks. At the mountains we always see big and high rocks with different color and shape stand alone and sometimes near the plants and trees that give us another scene of view. We also see the curves which we know as the big hole in the mountains. Inside the curve, we can visit a lot of amazing shape of rock that we rarely believe it happened in our world. Another amazing rock at the sea is arch that gives best shape and scenery on this planet.

An arch is a curved structure that spans a space and may or may not support weight above it. Arch may be synonymous with vault but vault may be distinguished as a continuous arch forming a roof. Arches appeared as early as the 2nd millennium BC in Mesopotamian brick architecture and their systematic use started with the Ancient Romans who were the first to apply the technique to a wide range of structures.

 Sea arches are a spectacular phenomena created by Mother Nature with a little help from oceans. They are usually composed of a soft rock that eroded over millions of years as waves hit land, carving caves and tunnels in the rock. Some arches are accessible by beachcombers at low tide, while others can be reached only by boat Some arches are big enough to drive watercraft through. All will provide a field day for photographers, too.

The arch is a pure compression form. It can span a large area by resolving forces into compressive stresses and, in turn eliminating tensile stresses. This is sometimes referred to as arch action. As the forces in the arch are carried to the ground, the arch will push outward at the base, called thrust. As the rise, or height of the arch decreases, the outward thrust increases. In order to maintain arch action and prevent the arch from collapsing, the thrust needs to be restrained, either with internal ties, or external bracing, such as abutments. The following are the best nice photo of sea arches in the world that we want to see with our real eyes when we take a look at them ! Photo Credit:
