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 and 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".
