This seemed appropriate for a Friday flip; both in terms of the current Daily Post theme of textures, and the conversations I’ve been having with Andy from Eye For a Pic about the geology of my hometown (and his), and of these “Shaky Isles” on which I now live.

Friday flip through the archives: on beach walks and reading the stories of the land

  1. It does make you wonder what kamikaze instinct leads people to build a home there, but it sure looks beautiful from the photos I’ve seen. Have a happy weekend, Su, and thanks for the visit ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Fantastic post Su (and thanks for the plug as well ๐Ÿ™‚ ), and great photos of the well and truly fractured sandstones, with the ubiquitous iron staining, no doubt from the very prolific volcanic sources. It’s hard to imagine there being any sedimentary rocks left in Auckland, with that much volcanic activity! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Wonderful shots, Su! Iยดm a big fan of geology as well, even was part of a little paleontological-geological excavation in the Eiffel – a region in Germany where lie many dormant volcanoes. Weยดve been excavating the bottom of a caldera and it was just a brilliant experience!

  4. I am no geologist, but I am fascinated by rocks and the various layers and levels therein. Imagining places that were once under the sea and now are mountains makes my head hurt, but in a good way. Touching rocks that are 60 million years old makes me feel very insignificant. Our planet is truly amazing.
