They aren't made of smaller rocks piled up into those shapes.
for one am mighty glad you mentioned my photos were clear ones. most complained not seeing anything at all...
now here are some details:
red lines shows the space/distance between one tier/level to the next one.
blue lines shows the height of the wall or next step or higher level or elevation which ranges from 5 to 7 meters high.
bold yellow line is a ragged line which show or indicates that there are uneven surfaces that it comes across its
path, meaning it crossed irregular planes.
i counted at least 6 levels here...
if this "erosion" is caused by a receding body of water it should show a more gentler slope....typically with a V/H sloping ratio of 1:4 or even more
and no sudden abrupt rise or fall in between tiers or levels.
And yes they are made of big and small rocks piled to retain the circular formation...which i think what makes me feel something is unnatural
with this "rock formation".
yellow circles typical section only of the rocks piled up.it goes all the way round...
