Devil's Postpile

Mammoth, California

No end to the interesting and beautiful treats along the Scenic 395 Highway. Here's an
unusual one, and although theories abound, no one really knows for sure how it came to be.
See the moon? Sure looked bigger in person(???).

other sizes: small medium original

That's something I've always wanted to see. Did you also visit Rainbow Falls while you were in the area?

Amazing formations and you captured them so well, Sandi!

Super perspective and great clarity, well captured Sandi...

Well they're basalt columns (igneous rock formed by volcanic subterranean intrusions), that must have been folded after formation and then pushed up (or surrounding rocks eroded). That's my amateurish assessment based on a low grade A level in Geology, anyway ;-)

Les stries dans le roc sont impressionnantes,l'angle de la prise est idéal pour les faire ressortir.

Great texture and contrast. Nicely composed -- and I've noticed that the moon does that to me too....
