26. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

27. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

28. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Knoll Down formation of 13-08-2011. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
