Coastal exposure of purplish grey orthogneiss retrogressed from granulite facies, with angular fragments of homogeneous amphibolite. The purplish grey orthogneiss displays indistinct foliation and migmatisation fabrics, which have been blurred during recrystallisation under granulite facies P-T conditions and subsequent static hydrous retrogression in amphibolite facies. Outer coast north of Fiskefjord, point west of Pâtôq. The island Talerulik is visible in the far distance.
