This is actually a shot of a 10 ft waterfall that feeds the stream that ends up being the main Alamere Falls. However, I wanted to focus on the cliff face in this shot. It has such an insane texture and coloring (the coloring was washed out in sunlight, but the shade here shows it). I'm not sure what kind of rock these cliffs are, but it was pretty hard, which was interesting because the cliffs are actually made up of tons of layers of it about 2 inches thick just laying on one another. We found this out when scaling the cliff face down to the beach as each layer tends to give out pretty easily under weight
The whole thing reminded me a lot of shale and how it flakes in layers..
