Tablelands in the Gros Morne national park, Newfoundland

Geologically this is a very interesting area, formed about 500 million years ago when the tectonic plates of the earth crust of what now is North America and Africa collided and pushed a piece of the underlying earth mantle to the surface. The light brown rocks are serpentine and have a very high metal content which is poisonous for most plants, hence the very scarce growth, only a very limited number of plants can survive there. Pushing the earth mantle to the surface over the crust/tectonic plates only happened at four places, and this one is the only one which is relatively easily accessible. Also interesting is that when such a rock breaks the interior is dark green, over time water and air oxidise it to this brownish state. It's a big area, spot the two walkers in the distance to get a sense of the scale of this landscape.

Interesting geology Pieter, looking forward to seeing the pics from your holiday (y)
Thanks Alan, we had a ball there and many times I thought how some of my GetDPI friends would also enjoy the landscape and scenery.

There's much more to come, I took > 2000 photo's and only went through them once and eliminated ~250 which were the absolute bummers, but there's still a lot of sorting and deleting to be done and then processing the ones which came out OK.
