    Awesome capture! You probably realize this is ancient ocean sea bed hardened through time? Amazing image and so interesting.

  • Thank you, Ann. This is at Ag. Pavlos, southern Crete. All of Crete came up as the African Plate, moved & still moves north, 25 million years ago. In fact Crete was five separate islands and the geology tends to vary. The eastern end of Crete is rising still and faster than the west at an express elevator speed compared to the usual speed of plate tectonics. The 367AD seismic event lifted the western end by some 25 to 30 metres. All of this makes the island a very interesting place.
    Kind regards
