Photographer's Note

Paarl or Pearl Mountain,

This huge granite rock is formed by three rounded outcrops that make up Paarl Mountain and has been compared in majesty to Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) in Australia. However, they are not geologically similar. Paarl Rock consists of intrusive igneous rock, granite mainly, while Uluru is a sedimentary remnant. It is calculated to be around 350 million years old :-)
