A piece of geological history is easily found in the Tablelands of Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. A place where the earth's mantle is exposed.
The earth's mantle is thought to be around 2900 km thick and is situated under the earth's crust. Tectonic plate movement and subsequent collision causing uplifting of the earth's crust and mantle millions of years ago is said to be the cause of the barren landscape seen at Tablelands today.

I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1DS, aperture of f/4.0, exposure time of 1/1250 sec. on ISO 50, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 70mm.
