In Perspective

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 3 February 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

I had to stop and admire the rocks that had been shoved up at 45 degrees. Some of those rock layers are 1,000 feet (305 meters) thick.

The forces that produced this must be enormous. The rocks themselves are testimony to the tumult that must have occurred over the centuries.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Perfectly-framed view that you've captured here with splendid colors!! I love the rock formation on the right with its multi-faceted surface as if huge portions of shale fell off. At first it looks like you came to a dead end, only to notice the small road continuing in the distance.
