Might have to see if you can identify some of the trees when I upload them as well!

I figure I should photograph just a bit more than railways.

*peers at rock pics*



Were they very crumbly, Ax? Or did you not get quite that close
They look like they're weathered all to shit... might have been sandstony at some point? Maybe a bit of mudstone, between the layers and all...

I was standing beside it, but I didn't really touch it. I wasn't sure if I was meant to be up there in the first place! I just wanted some higher ground for my rail photography, and I wanted to get off the cycle path.

Can't say I'm surprised they're seriously weathered, since it is a railway cutting, a very large railway cutting, and I imagine the sides of the cutting haven't been touched much since the railway was put through over 100 years ago. Hope the close-ups help ...

*tempted*

And that's a good question. I don't know why the layers seem to be concentric like that, that's very odd... it looks like it could be mudstone, or maybe something finer-grained like siltstone or maybe even chert, if it's a bit metamorphosed.
I should look up a geological map of Melbourne, if I'm going to do this properly...

Ooh, I've managed to confuse you! Now you've got to come down and spend some nerdy time checking out the rocks! I'm going to coax Fellow Albino Railfan into doing the walk sometime soon, as it's definitely a good spot for photography, so you'd be more than welcome to come along too.

Though I imagine I've done most of my gunzelling/photography for the week, as the Bureau's forecasting a shower or two all the way through to Saturday.

(Tomorrow, I've got to make a historical record of the old Peel Street stops on the western side of Queen Vic Market, as they're being ripped out and replaced over the long weekend.)

It's not that hard to confuse me

Yay for nerd time! I saw my old hand lens the other day, too...

Weather... Looks like it was a bit damp when you were there?

Stoopid people, always ripping things up.
