A quick Friday fold here from the North-West Highlands of Scotland:
These are Lewisian gneisses exposed on a headland northwest of the little outpost of Tarbet (where the Handa Island ferry departs from). I was out there in search of shear zones, but I found plenty of nice folds, too.
There are two main folds in the image – a synform in the foreground (yellow), and an antiform in the distance (pink):
Happy Friday to you!
