Photographer's Note

Rocks of Polish Jura. The Krakow-Czestochowa Upland, also known as the Polish Jurassic Highland, is part of the Jurassic System of south–central Poland. The Polish Jura consists of a hilly landscape with Jurassic limestone rocks, cliffs, valleys and vast limestone formations, featuring some 220 caves. The relief of the upland developed since the Paleogene, under climatic conditions changing considerably. Its main component is a plain, crowned by monadnocks, rocky masses that resisted erosion, generated as hard rock on Late Jurassic buildup surrounded by less resistant bedded limestone of the same age.
