Caption: Banded sedimentary rock face. View of sedimentary rock face, showing very distinct strata. The rock is different colours according to its composition; most of the red and greyish rock is sandstone with differing amounts of mineral inclusions. The layered effect results from the different erosion rates in different strata; layers of softer rock erode more quickly. Photographed at Zion National Park, Utah, USA.
