A new book about rocks – coming soon

The summer has been busy, spending time finishing a manuscript about rocks in Norway. The book will be published in October by Kagge forlag. Since it will be a popular science book, I have added a lot of pictures from both rocks and landscapes. Here is a tease-image of one of my favourite rocks, an ignimbrite from close to where I live, near Drammen. The ignimbrite formed from the fall-out material following a huge caldera-forming volcanic eruption. This happened a while ago, about 270-80 million years, in the Oslo rift.
