These wrinkled and broken strata are the oldest formations of the Yosemite region. They were formed in the sea on deposits of mud, sand and other material. Folding, breaking and change in texture resulted from movements which formed the original Sierra range, now largely worn away.

The textures are good Vanda. The contrast with the greenery adds to the shot. Interesting information.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

We have some of those just west of me too. Amazing to see such formations.

I'd like to knock some of those rocks down and use them in my landscaping. I like the colors in them. Very cool shot, Vanda.

The difference between a bad artist and a good one is: the bad artist seems to copy a great deal; the good one really does. ~William Blake

They literally look as old as the hills! Love how jagged and worn down they look. Very nice!

I think im having amnesia and deja vu at the same time - I think I have forgotten this before.

The more slanted these splintered formations are, the older they often are. The fact that some of these have crusty calcification between layers (the remains of sea shells) is also an indicator of their extreme age. Nice capture, Vanda.
