Bur­ger­buk­ta

Bur­ger­buk­ta (Horn­sund)

Bur­ger­buk­ta is on the nort­hern side of Horn­sund, and it dis­plays this beau­ti­ful pan­ora­ma on its eas­tern shore. The beau­ty of this land­s­cape in terms of colours and struc­tures is deeply roo­ted in its geo­lo­gy. The colou­ra­ti­on is due to the lay­ers: from brow­nish-red Old Red at the bot­tom (Devonian/lower Car­bo­ni­fe­rous) through yel­lo­wish-brown upper Carboniferous/Permian to dark-brown Tri­as­sic at the top. And the defor­ma­ti­on rela­ted to the ope­ning of the north Atlan­tic is respon­si­ble for the beau­ti­ful folds and bends.

No 360° pan­ora­ma, only works with the Flash Play­er on mobi­le devices, for examp­le, with the → Puf­fin-Brow­ser.
