Caption: View of cliffs at Stair Hole, near Lulworth, Dorset, UK, showing folded rock strata. The layers of Jurassic rock, originally deposited in horizontal beds, have been folded as a result of the collision between the African & European crustal plates. The collision was responsible for the uplifting of the Alps and the Dorset folding has been described as "the outer ripples of the Alpine storm".
