Caption: Folded rock strata seen in a cliff. The strata, or layers of a rock, are seen as horizontal bands running across the exposed cliff face. A fold (upper centre) in the strata is evidence of the tectonic forces within the Earth's crust which have buckled and crumpled the originally horizontal rock strata. Photographed in Austria.
