Will, who posts under the name geologistsmakethebedrock, said:

“I really like to peruse Google Earth looking for cool things. My captions either come from basic internet research of my guess about what’s happening. Keep in mind that they are just my interpretations of things and could be wrong.”

He shared that it all started when he tried looking for interesting geological processes for a lecture presentation. After seeing these amazing shots, he screenshots them. Since he finds the images so cool, he decided to share them online and shared some explanations, so readers would understand it.

Will added:

“One tip to find interesting geology things is to look for symmetry or patterns in landscapes. Most symmetry is from human activates, but certain geologic processes can great semi-symmetry.”
