I've been fascinated by the strata in these rocks on the Roaches since I first saw them some years ago, and I have so far failed to find any geological account of them. Very neat, precise diagonal bands between narrow horizontals – it looks as though the earth's surface here tilted backwards and forwards on a regular basis here.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Beautifully tactile images Moira, you should visit the far North of Scotland or the east coast of Skye, the land has slipped or been pushed to some seemingly impossible angles.

I love rock strata and to think about how the surface of our planet heaves itself about like so much blancmange. Nicely seen.

I do not know the Roaches, but will attempt to find out. Rock has always held a fascination for me, the sight of it, the climbing of it . . .

Good on you Jon, I've hunted a fair bit but haven't found anything on these rocks specifically. Diagonal strata - fine, no problem; but it's the regular horizontal bands that fascinate me.
Thanks everyone, and wishing you a sunny weekend.

Billions of years of shift and change....age creates beauty.
V3 is particularly wonderful with the heather peeping through.

Joline, I have a set of b&w conversions and they will go up some time in reverse order to this upload - V3 first.
Thanks everyone,

When you only see part of something it can fool you. These rocks look like they could be leaves, the veins showing so well. Great set Moira............Sandy

It's amazing how these rocks form. Makes great patterned abstract images...think V3's my fave with that patch of heather bottom right Wink

I love your inquiring mind.

Rock strata have always brought beauty to me but I've never pondered the circumstances surrounding the patterning.

Well shot shots of these interesting obliques, Moira.

OH Moira,nothing new for me here.
The Earths surface tilts backwards and forwards for me every Saturday after the Dockers Club !!
Like V2.
There seems to be more ''tiltiness'' to it !!
