I've been working on a study of geology along the camino.
I was intending to be on the Francés myself in a month to take a closer look at some particular outcrops and take pictures. I've had to cancel until next year, but I'm feeling impatient. Is there anyone, (like @piparnold , (who I notice from the calendar is starting tomorrow), that might help?
I thought I would do this by private messaging, but it seems you can't post photos that way.
If this comes off, I'm afraid it won't be of much interest generally. For instance here's number 1.
The first rocks in situ that you'll come across are in a layby on the right, about 3.5km from St Jean. On google street, it looks like this.

A photo, from a couple of metres away clearly showing the rock layers would be appreciated.
Another more obviously of interest is at Vierge Orisson. I have this, (not my picture), which reasonably shows the limestone layers but I'm looking for something closer in to those formations from this side which still includes the statue but clearly features the steeply dipping rock layers, if you see what I mean.

This region was subjected to major tectonic and volcanic upheaval dating back 350 million years. You can clearly see a volcano cone from Biarritz and there are many large volcanic boulders strewn on the beaches. The Ossau area around SJPdp is made up of Andesite. There is a brief explantion of the geology of the Pyrenees on a site Hike Pyrenees.

I didn't know about volcanics on the beaches. I haven't strayed that far on the French side. Just looked, and Hike Pyrenees is a very well presented and informative site.

A photo from 2012.
Thanks for posting @Theatregal. Interesting that your picture is from exactly the same angle as @DoughnutANZ's, but his is slightly further back and happens to capture the clearly dipping rock slabs in the middle foreground.
I really apologise if it comes across as a competition;)
Thanks, guys for taking an interest. I'm stoked!
