North east Fife is an outstanding area for rock photography,
I love the colours, shapes and patterns you find on the different types of sedimentary rocks
Layers of sandstone, mudstone, limestone and coal were laid down in the early Carboniferous when this part of Scotland lay to the south of the Equator.
Then there was a period of deformation in the late Carboniferous – earthquakes and compression resulted in a landscape cracked and twisted under pressure.
The folds in the sedimentary rocks are clearly visible today, with anticlines, synclines and dome structures found all along the coastline.
