[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
600 Million years ago Earth was composed of only 2 continents that historians called later Laurasia (comprising Asia and Europe) and Gwondana, including Africa, India, South America.
Later on, from the Gwondana Part, Asia separated and began moving before hitting the northern part, forming at that moment the Himalayan mountains.
Then, Madagascar also separated from Africa. When Madagascar began moving, this move made the center of the country collapse, forming a large basin.
With the years, this basin was alternatively submerged by the sea and emptied again and again and these different periods can be seen here with the different layers.
As each layer has a different composition and by that have different hardness, the wind playing with these different materials generated those strange shapes.
Picture was taken in August 2011 from hotel "Les Jardins du Roy"

Olá Fidy
The colors and textures are very very good...the only thing I would do different is to crop a litlle from this sky...it looks half half and i will try just 173 sky to make the rocks textures and colors the main attraction.
Your notes are very interesting
Um abraço

Bom dia Fidy,
I quite agree with Teresa when she says she has too much sky. I go a little further saying that the blue sky too is much polarized much and that distorts a bit the beauty of the image if focused on the nice forms of rock and their textures.
Good picture though.

Olá Fidy

Australia would have been part of the Indian Plate along with Antarctica & the others to form Gwondana. Interesting geology lesson & striking warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky & red tinged rock. Tfs!

Hello Fidy :)

These rocks look on the background of the magnificently blue sky beautifully and curiously.
Beautiful colours, showy composition.

With best wishes.

Hello Fidy! Superb rocks. Amazing clear sky. Perfect contrast and sharpness. Sophisticated effect. Interesting note. Well done!
