Caption: Erosional features in shale, Paria, Utah, USA. Rare events of heavy precipitation have gradually eroded the soft shale strata of the Triassic Chinle formation. Colour differences in the rock strata are due to varying amounts of iron minerals. In the foreground a hoodoo is beginning to form.
