Kirkjufell in Iceland. This was one of our last stops of the trip, and we were not disappointed! We camped in our car right across the road from here and began our day with a quick hike around the area. So relaxing.
Metal Detecting (1/3) What better place to have some fun metal detecting 💍 then Jamaica 🇯🇲!
Spent some time scanning around with the metal detector in a variety of environments, wistfully hoping to hit it big 💰 while I'm here. Check out my finds in a few days 🤙🏼
Have you ever found anything crazy with a metal detector?!

A sorpresa ho deciso di iniziare questa nuova "rubrica" con il vero protagonista del romanzo, ovvero David e spero che di giorno in giorno quello che leggiate possa farvi venire sempre più curiosità! -Sai chi può darti un po' di felicità? Ti do numero e nome, così la chiami e vedrai che ti farà passare una notte da sogno!- Giorgio lo colpì scherzosamente su una spalla. -Non ho bisogno di quel tipo di felicità, idiota. Vorrei solo qualcuno con cui viaggiare, vivere avventure, qualcuno che mi guardi con amore e mi faccia sentire apprezzato ogni giorno...chiedo forse troppo?
When I’m fragile, You’re invincible, the only one I know that can hold my whole world
Never ever have You ever failed to come through
Always faithful always present, that is You
Showing up to cover my weakness
That is what You do
"Every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole"

🌎🌿This beautiful, naturally occurring formation is found in Arizona. It consists of intersecting U-shaped troughs, eroded by water and wind into Jurassic age Navajo Sandstone. Visitors must walk carefully to avoid breaking the soft sandstone, which is extremely fragile, especially the ridges and ribbing seen across the wave. Due to the large number of people wanting to visit, only 20 passes are issued a day using a lottery system!
🌱🌿Would you want to be one of those lucky 20 people a day allowed to visit? What do you think about the wave? Comment below!

Recently, I saw a TV documentary about the geological history of and the history of geology in Europe. To illustrate the scientific progress over the decades, one professor from the @edinburghuniversity opened his old field books and showed his sketches of outcrops, which he drew back in the day when he was a student. Then he explained how the understanding of the drawn formation’s geological genesis has changed. But I was distracted by the fineness of his drawing – so neat and rich in detail. I really envy him his talent. 😧
This is a cutout of a sketch I crafted for my first excursion report at the @unigreifswald. The field trip took us to the German island of Usedom in the Baltic Sea where we mapped the cliffed coast’s inverted relief. It is a quite pathetic try to portray „flame structures“ with a slight offset due to small step faults – found at the strata boundary between clayey silt layers (purple) and medium sand (yellow). The digitization was done with CorelDRAW. „Flame structures“ are a type of load cast / soft-sediment deformation that forms in unlithified sediment. They are created when a denser layer of sediment is deposited on top of a less-dense sediment. This arrangement is gravitationally unstable and the sediment becomes liquefied. Once the sediments can flow, the instability and the pressure create the hanging lobes and knobs of the load casts as plumes of the denser sediment descend into the less-dense layer.
