[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The 16th in the series under the title FROM ICE TO FIRE - A 200 MILLION YEAR JOURNEY BETWEEN TWO DESERTS. To follow the whole story, one would have to start with Image 1.

It is just under 240 million years before present and life is struggling to recover in the arid environment. Maybe it is the Second Creation. The collision in the south is still continuing in a series of pulses. Note that the present-day landscape, although controlled by the underlying geology, bears no relation to that of more than 200 MYBP.

Floods pass through, after rains in the provenance, in the form of meandering rivers with extensive floodplains which dry up for long periods during which the iron compounds of the clay minerals become oxidised and turn to a red pigmentation. The surface in the foreground is such a floodplain, while the hill in the background displays a series of flood events with fining-upwards cycles (sandstone overlain by red shale)during relatively higher elevations of the provenance.

Hi Neels, you really captured the shape of this pointed butte beautifully. It's nice to see someone appreciate geology as I do as well. The typical karoo landscape is simple yet beautiful.
Best regards Natasja.
