Fossilised sand ripples

Fossilised sand ripples

Moving now into the Flinders Ranges in South Australia – and the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary in particular.

Ripples in sand created by water some hundreds of millions of years ago are frozen in time. What was once a horizontal surface is now vertical. Taken in Bararranna Gorge at Arkaroola.

    A wonderful juxtapostionof a photographic still catching a sendimentary layer thats now vertical of a ‘moment ‘ captured in time.
    A image that took millions of years to make of a very short duration in time.

    thanks for the brilliant image Gordon.
