That’s a nice photograph of the Page Sandstone mudcracks. I’ve been looking for a good image of Mesozoic mudcracks to use in an anti-creationism project I’m working on, since the presence of mudcracks in Mesozoic rocks shows that these rocks can’t have formed during a global flood. (Mud can’t dry while it’s underwater.) Would it be all right if I were to use your photograph as part of my project? I’d give you credit for it, of course.
