Ancient Sedimentary by DrewHopper Ancient Sedimentary by DrewHopper
Sunrise from Wright's Lookout - New England National Park, NSW Australia.

The precipitous cliffs of the plateau edge are the result of at least five basalt lava flows from the Ebor volcano forming a rim over 300 metres thick. Active until about 18 million years ago this massive volcano was centred around The Crescent, a semi-circular ridge in the Bellinger Valley.

Subsequent erosion has created the dramatic profile of the escarpment which is visible today. Below the volcanic rocks lie ancient folded sedimentary rocks, almost 500 million years old, which have been carved into a myriad of virtually inaccessible peaks and ridges and are now densely forested.

Wish I could afford new gear.. would need to sell all my current gear and take out a loan though. Which might just be what I'll do soon though.
