    I was this, was weird hey, is it natural?
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, odd, but natural. I presume the rock was originally turned 90 degrees such that this seam was horizontal, and composed of rock that cooled at a different rate to the surrounding rock.

    i think this is an intrusion of magma into a joint in the granite. the intrusion would have happened a long time after the formation of the granite.

    Uncanny that these seams are very similar to the ones at "Wave Rock" in Western Australia.
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah good point, didn't think of that.
    So is the Wave ;-)

    Nice work Dave, it was very interesting and a good 'natural' leading line!

  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed, can't complain that the landscape didn't provide photographic devices ;-)
    Danke :)

    Nice leading line here. What's over the other side of the rock edge?
  • David de Groot said:
    More rocks of course! ;-)
    And Garry.

    is there any bedding top structures. as it can be used to determine top of the bedding and find the how much it turned in the end.

    This stuff is waaaaaaay too old to have any of the softer layers still visible. All that's left around here are gigantic granite monoliths.
