Folded sedimentary (?) rock layers at Millook Haven, near Widemouth Bay, North Cornwall. According to Alan Titchmarsh’s book “British Isles – A Natural History” (BBC Books, 2004) these buckles and folds were caused about 290 million years ago when the two continents Laurasia and Gondwana collided and the Rheic Ocean separating them disappeared. Britain then became marooned in the centre of the supercontinent Pangaea for the next 80 million years. Colours enhanced.

    I love geology, and abstract art
    SO
    The way you captured these tectonic folds just sends me

    what a fearful torturous beautiful tale they tell of the slow motion waves we call mountains
