It really doesn’t get any better when you can just look at the beautiful deformations in geology. The photo above shows what is called ductile deformation, which is basically a gradual change where the rocks are morphing, folding, etc. This is all due to stress when the rocks have breached their elastic limit, and this now means it will be a permanent change for the rock.
