The Ruginoasa Hole (Rozsda-szakadék in Hungarian, Groapa Ruginoasă in Romanian)
The Ruginoasa Hole represents a particular erosion phenomenon. It is a huge ravine dug up into the crest of the summit that closes to the South the Seaca valley, encompassing over 100 m in depth and 600 m in diameter. All over its surface, a very active erosion process brought to daylight the quartz strata, whose redish-violet colour gives the area a special appearance, like an open wound in the mountain, seen from great distances.
Sharp edges, like razors, converge to its centre where a small valley forms. This is the origin of the Seaca valley, which transforms into a canyon almost impossible to surpass due to its waterfalls.

An original capture of the impressive nature's creation. I like the strong contrastst that creates a mysterious mood.
Have a good week.

Amazing landscape and a beautiful image, maybe a little underexposed.

I was attracted to your geological erosion panorama because it looks the same as our California hydraulic mining State Park in Bloomfield. Ours however, was caused by destructive diversion of water through steel monitors under great pressure, eroding away everything.
The otherside of my world, but so similar,
Thanks for the vision,
