Photographer's Note

Columnar joints in a dacite dome at Los Frailes caldera, near to San Jose, Almeria. There is another dacite dome in the distance. This locality is of real geologic interest, as it shows the formation of, and collapse of, volcanoes and calderas. This region of Spain has a wide and varied geologic history which makes it perfect for university field trips
