A rock and a hard place

NPhoto - - Over To You -

In N-Photo is­sue 72, page 74, I see you have a photo of Kilt Rock sent in by Andy Dines as part of his port­fo­lio. I’m used to see­ing ex­tra info on in­sects, birds and plants, but hardly ever in­for­ma­tion on the kinds of rocks in pic­tures. The top rock in the Kilt Rock photo looks like it may have the colum­nar joint­ing that lava or shal­low in­tru­sion may form upon rapid cool­ing. The bot­tom light-coloured lay­ered rocks look a lot more like sed­i­men­tary rocks, such as lime­stone or sand­stone. Does any­one have any com­ment on this or are all the pho­tog­ra­phers at N-Photo non-ge­ol­o­gists? Thanks for any in­for­ma­tion! Bob Cullers, via email

Great ques­tion, Bob! Rock nuts we are not. Are there any ge­ol­o­gists in the au­di­ence?
