G'day all

In central South Australia just north of Coober Pedy, these dramatic upthrusts remain from the days of the great inland sea, est'd at 10~15,000 years ago

1)- one of many mesa-like protrusions standing proud from the surrounding countryside

exif- Panny FZ-2500; 1/400s x F4,0; ISO-125; lens at 3x zoom / 75mm FFequiv + CPL filter

2)- locally called 'the two dogs' these outcrops are very different colours and types of sedimentary materials

exif- Panny FZ-2500; 1/500s x F4,0; ISO-125; lens at 3x zoom / 75mm FFequiv + CPL Filter

As always, feedback welcome

Amazing shots Phil.

Both images look good in their own way, the skies suit the story. The images are very dramatic, particularly the latter, are the upthrusts chalk stone?

G'day Paul

no mate- the stuff is regular sandstone but with heaps of minerals which give it the colour
This whole area - right up to the famous Uluru Rock used to be underwater and the area is still littered with ancient sea shells embedded into the sandstone

Looks a bit like parts of the western US. Looks like a lot of iron oxide rich clay/sandstone and a lot of limestone(?) on that white outcrop in the 2nd image. Great shots.

Great shots mate. Reminds me of Kodachrome Basin State Park, Utah in US. The color contrast there is very similar to the ones here, especially image 2.
