Landslides formed the distinctive escarpments of the Quiraing, Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Thanks for the comments and sorry for any misunderstanding about the title.
To clear things up:
An escarpment is a steep slope or long cliff that occurs from erosion or faulting and separates two relatively level areas of differing elevations.

Another good example of an escapment can be seen in my FS of May:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1745/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1070712.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1745/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1070712.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Quite often you see this formations (I should have used this word instead of Forms) combined with massive rocks in all kind of shapes.
Therefore my image was not a shoehorn, I knew I was going to use the word 'escarpment', but I guess the title as a whole is a bit shoehorn-like.

Sometimes I wonder if people just enter a shot of a mountain, and then hope for the best, I don't even know what your title means, lol! Bit of a shoehorn.

Harsh lighting. Processing has accentuated this.
