Michael Nyman composed and performed this moving score to accompany the film, The Piano. In the film, the piano becomes the mute characters way of conveying emotion, and the music is laden with pathos and passion. Lovely. Have a listen.

Thank you, +Ulia

A gap in the rock record is called an unconformity and represents a time of erosion in between times of deposition of sedimentary layers. This is an angular unconformity because the layer on the bottom has been tilted vertically and eroded, and new layers deposited on top. See if you can spot the unconformity.

Left to right:
Tapeats Sandstone deposited 525 million years ago in a beach environment.
Zoraster Granite emplaced 1.7 billion years ago.
Vishnu Schist 1.8 billion years ago.

Missing over a billion years between the Tapeats and the Zoraster. Named the Great Unconformity by John Wesley Powell. And yes, you need to capitalize it.

Frenchman's Stop in the Frenchman Mountains outside of Las Vegas, and also at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
