Natural History Photographs


On our way over the pass towards Theth, I noticed rocky outcrops with beautifully warped laminations. When we returned at the end of our stay, I saw these again and decided to capture them. It's well possible that these structures originated in a marine slump; apart from the warped laminations, the nearby presence of the huge boulder with the chaotic patchwork of disorganized laminated fragments lends support to this interpretation.
