[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The geometry of this present-day structure resembles that of trough cross bedding formed by water flowing from bottom to top in the photograph. Closer inspection, however, reveals that the water was flowing from top to bottom as can, for example, be seen by the asymmetry of the ripples. The geometry is very unusual and is the result of flow in a shute-like structure that even dips in the upstream direction. Determining flow direction in ancient strata is very important for a number of reasons and correct interpretation from careful observation is vital towards that end.
