Discovery HD Theater - Sunrise Earth E09 Swallow Sea Cave

The Coast of Maine — From within a dark sea cave carved out of a cliff, we look towards the east and catch the sun rising over the ocean. The tide is low and the pools within the cave hold delicate young northern anemones, white and pink, as well as red coralline algae and common periwinkles. The rhythmic surge of ribbon kelp in the easy surf and the natural acoustics of the cavern provide soothing echoes in the spirit of Mendelssohn's Fingal's Cave overture. Cave swallows dart in and out of the entrance to feed their young, nesting in the cliff wall overhead.
