Sedimentary rock. Aerial photograph of sandstone showing cross-bedding. This sedimentary rock was formed by the deposition of successive layers of sediment carried in water or air currents, later compressed into rock. The cross-bedding (narrow lines) are produced by changes in the direction of the depository water over time. Photographed in the Paria Wilderness, Utah, USA.
