Friday fold: Colorado cluster
Posted by Callan Bentley
Reader Carl Brink laments the lack of robust recent Friday folds, and he’s decided to do something about it!
From Colorado’s Front Range, he sends this image of an intensely folded granite dikelet within Proterozoic biotite schist:
That’s intense. Ptygmatic, sure, but the butterfly-like sense of symmetry to it reminds me of a Rorschach blot.
What a gorgeous fold. Thank you, Carl!
Gorgeous! Can you talk about how this might happen?
I see a Hawaiian Day octopus 😉
