Photo Hunt: Wrinkled






A wrinkled geomorphic landform called the Sugar Loaf from Hallett Cove Conservation Park, south of Adelaide and close to where we live. Ryan went with his Joey Scout mob to take a look. There is a lot to see and understand in a relatively small area, with international significance for those that are interested in those sorts of things. This small area reminded me of The Badlands National Park in South Dakota, which I visited over ten years ago.

It is funny to think of Adelaide having been under ice. We could use some of that now as a water source. Hopefully I wont be as wrinkled as this, later in life.

My first thought on seeing the picture is that it looks a bit like the Badlands. Great wrinkles!

What an interesting and original Wrinkled idea! Thanks for sharing and hope Adelaide gets more rain soon.

Aileni said...

That's good - makes a change from wrinkled garments.

Baker Watson said...

Great photo for the theme. Very interesting formation.

I think it is interesting that if you had cropped to just the wrinkles it would likely have looked similar to my entry, lol. Both from nature but so different in size and composition.
