incredible. It's so perfect looking.
How was it formed?
Its an aoelian sandstone. Aoelian= desert. Most desert sandstones are results of petrified dunes. All the rock you see in the picture used to be sanddunes that just got eroded out in different shapes. The wind direction before the dune was petriefied would have switched a few times. The lines are a result of wind directions and the reason they are so erratic is the fact that the changing wind formed different sets of line going different directions. Maybe that makes sense
What a beautiful shot. And, love the music on your page.
Thank you and thank you! :)
Mother nature and the musicians did all the work... I'm just an admirer of both!
of satuation in the photo. I need to crank up the bass a bit on the music! Kind of like Geddy Lee - Cheers. :)
Ohhh... so, I'm Canadian - therefore, I automatically am a Rush fan? hehe... seriously, I grew up on Rush. Some of their stuff hasn't aged so well, but I still love them. Thanks for the compliments on the pictures... hope you make it up to Canada someday!
I was communicating (thru cyberspace) with a fellow who said he grew up in Ontario. When I asked him politely about Neil Young, he replied, "Who's that???" Nobody's perfect!
Take care and be safe! - LARRY :)
Amazing splines building this photo - nice composition!
Thanks Rama! Cheers.
looks like one could slide down the smooth earth tones. Formed by water long ago? beautiful shot.
Thank you! It was a very beautiful place to be. I'm not sure how these formations were created. It looks as though there were these very deformed strata that got eroded down to a certain level and then that new rock was formed on top of that after. But how these layers got so twisted in the first place... I dunno! :)
It seems that Jim and I are attracted to places with names like "Paraiah Canyon" and "River of no return". They seem to have to most unusual formations etc. This shot is amazing!
They are pretty surreal places to be in aren't they? I understand the attraction there! I've really got to get myself down to those parts again... Thanks on the compliment, take care!
