Uplifting

SquareUp Photo Challenge: Camping at Carnarvon Gorge, October 2020 #5

The sandstone cliffs of Carnarvon Gorge are ancient. They were formed around 200 million years ago, with volcanic flows adding a basalt cap 170 million years later. Over time, erosion by water and movement in the earth’s crust have created the dramatic landscape today’s visitors admire.

Giant slabs of sandstone, with strata lines following the slope up from the creek, are visual evidence of the uplift which occurred so long ago.

In January I’m joining in with Becky’s Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word up. Look for #SquareUp
