Der Boden /die Erde/ das Land war steinig/felsig/Es war Felsenlandschaft.

Gibt es nicht mehr Kontext? Ich sehe noch zu viele Möglichkeiten.Vor allem 2 Kriterien: e i n z e l n e Stücke Felsgestein, in der Landschaft verteilt oder z u s a m m e n h ä n g e n d (Felsenkette, Massiv)?
steinig kann sein: synonym zu felsig/Fels(grund)= zusammenhängendes Gestein, evtl. einzelne Felsbrocken, mit Felsbrocken...übersät", aber auch: z.B. Rollkiesel: Flußkiesel (Moränengestein)
