These are exposures of Jurassic diabase which can be found on the north side of Conway Robinson State Forest near Gainesville, Va. Conway Robinson is located near the center of the Culpeper Basin, a Mesozoic rift basin related to crustal stretching during the break-up of Pangea. This diabase was the source of the basalt, which flowed on the surface during the break up of Pangea.
The outcrops have a very polygonal shape, which is due to series of wide-spaced vertical joints that break the rock into columns. There is also a series of horizontal joints which are more thinly spaced the vertical set.

    So far, I love it. Its compact, powerful and fits in the Epic. Not the greatest zoom power but the image quality is superb!
