Thanks Nicolas. It's really amazing how these rocks can have so many layers and patterns without ever repeating themselves.
That is beautiful...I agree with Nicolas on the lines.. it really draws my attention and makes me look at the photo even closer
I also love these rocks with their beautiful patterns created by erosion, Ryan! It's amazing!
Thank you Rafael and Anne. It's not just the erosion here that makes such fascinating lines--the rock layers are all bent and slanted, some almost all the way on their side. The patterns made by the lines are sometimes 90° off from what you'd expect.
Fascinating views, Ryan! The pressure on the rocks is amazing. I have photographed some examples in the Alps, which show strangest shapes, some look like a folded cloth.
To my delight I see that you seem to have spared a little time for Panoramio. I missed you dearly, your photos and comments, though I haven't been busy in Panoramio either for many weeks! :)
Best wishes, May
Hello, May! Yes, I have some more free time in the evenings, now that I'm not constantly sorting through boxes and endless more boxes.
Thank you for visiting my bug's eye view photo. :)
Hi Gerry, thanks for your comments! Sorry for the late response, btw. The erosion is caused by all the sand blown in the extremely high winds. There are some times of day you almost need breathing equipment here, when the sand whips up in your face and eyes and mouth. It can really be tough on cameras too.
