Nikkor AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6, Ni...
Limestone Bluff Cedar-Pine Forest at Lone Rock Point, Vermont – Dunham dolostone (Cambrian, light color) has been thrust to the west as much as 80 km (50 miles) and rests here on top of much younger Iberville shale (Ordovician, black). The contrasting appearance of the two rock types, and the ca. 50 million year difference in their ages, contribute to the fame of this exposure. Three commercial tour boats slowed for a look while I was there (there is a better exposure around the point to the right).
The calcareous dolostone supports a forest of northern white cedar. Common on rocky headlands like this, the forest type is rare elsewhere in Vermont. A snapshot of this gigapan shows the location of another gigapan (www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=30375) showing the interior of the bluff forest.
Some technical notes are in a comment.
