Caption: Reef remains in limestone, Italian Alps. Limestone is a sedimentary rock laid down on the bed of prehistoric oceans and then uplifted to its present position. Although the limestone in this picture has been subjected to the intense forces present during the Alpine mountain-building era, the remains of a reef from an ancient sea can still be seen. Photographed in the Gran Paradiso National Park of northern Italy
