Stone Layers

A cloudy morning in Snow Canyon State Park with patches of sun lighting up the
landscape. Thanks for commenting.

Your image makes one wish that they were a geologist to understand the layering on the mountain slopes. The touch of green at the bottom of the picture serves as a strong foundation for the balance of the image. Best with a black background.

When I see photos like these, I always wonder what events took place thousands maybe millions of years ago to create these amazing layers. Thanks for sharing all of your fantastic photos.

Snow Canyon SP was volcanic at one time which during eruption and heat activity
probably solidified what is now the petrified dune area. This scene may have been
caused by an uplift. Maybe one huge uplift or in stages to show the current layering.
Best guess from my limited geology knowledge.

Thanks Jeff. All very interesting and mysterious as well.
