Friday fold: Gold Harbour, South Georgia

Posted by Callan Bentley

It’s Friday!

Here’s a fold that rolled in a few weeks back, from reader Saranne Cessford, who writes:

Here’s my fold: Gold Harbour, South Georgia Island. Opposing recumbent fold noses frame the hanging glacier at Gold Harbour. Rocks are volcaniclastic turbidites of the early Cretaceous Cumberland Bay formation. The white dots along the shoreline are King penguins.

Very cool!

Let’s zoom in on the two “noses”…

Great looking rocks! The glacier and penguins ain’t bad either!
