Sedimentary rock. Aerial photograph of a landscape formed from sedimentary rocks. These rocks are composed of volcanic ashes, deposited here by air currents around 220 million years ago. The ashes contained high levels of iron and manganese oxides, which produced the bright colours seen. Photographed in the Painted Desert, Utah, USA.
