Oh wow that is super cool – just saw amazing crystal collection (HUGE crystals – size of cars) which included a twisty ropey calclification of muddy extrusions found near Versailles – whoda thunk it. Never realised crystals could be so large…collection of an American, can’t find him on google.
Go looking & Ye shall find 🙂 even in remote overhangs.
I did quite a bit of caving in times gone by & some of the sights are spectacular, especially when the head torch light catches them.
Exceptional ‘Rock Art’, my friend. I love those subtle tonal differences – perfect lighting too! 🙂
Many thanks Marina,
It just goes to show how isolated some of these areas have been. In a cave it can take eons of time for formations like these. This was just in a rather deep overhang at the top end of a wadi.
