Plucked face of a roche moutonnee

Here's another classic glacial landform from the west side of Rodloga Storskar in the Stockholm Archipelago.  This is another piece of a roche moutonnee, but here we are looking straight at the plucked face -- ie the ice has come directly towards the camera.    The great scar left following the removal of plucked blocks is truly spectacular. 

I am rather convinced that this is the mechanism by which large blocks were dragged from the outcrops ar Rhosyfelin, during the Anglian Glaciation.......
