Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This photograph was taken from the cliffs at Anglesey. I was on the steps, venturing downwards, to the South Stack Lighthouse

Here, there is a whole variety of rock types.
At the base, the South Stack Group includes sandstones and interbedded shales. These have been contorted by magnificent folds and crumples, which are superbly exposed in the cliffs.

As you can see, these folds are clearly visible to people on the lighthouse steps.

Above these strata is the thick, rather pure Holyhead Quartzite which forms the bulk of Holyhead Mountain.

When you see the earth folded and crumpled, like this, you have to marvel at what has happened to the Earth over its lifetime!

Have a lovely day, Bev :-)
