Monday Geology Picture(s): Granite and Penguins at Boulders Beach, Simonstown
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
Last week I shared a few pictures from beautiful Boulders Beach just down the road in Simonstown, South Africa. This week I thought I’d share some more pictures of granite – and penguins! – at Boulders Beach. In the close-up shots, note gorgeous the potassium feldspar megacrysts in the granite. Most visitors to the beach focus on the penguins, but the granites are quite spectacular, too! Enjoy!
