Do you know what type of minerals they are made of?
This was my first thought as well. They remind me a bit of the various chimney rocks you see in the American West. Although these are in a different environment, which could explain why the erosion patterns on these aren't quite the same as those in the US.

I'm going to guess that the first pic was taken from a helicopter (see the rotor in the upper right?) and that's why it looks somewhat surreal -- the elevated viewpoint. I think our minds perceive something "off" about it, and I think that's what is "off".

This is fascinating ! Reminds me of some of the sandstone pillars in southcentral Utah, except those are sedimentary rock worn down by erosion. In particular, a series of "happy" rocks in Utah charmingly referred to by the locals as ......hmmmmm........ how to say this....... "rooster" rock.

I've never heard of this area. Makes me wonder how many other wonders I've never been aware of. I think I declared a moritorium on global travel tooooo sooooon.

Awesome pics!!!!
Truly breathtaking....
The first pic has some interesting anomalies in the sky.
1) Strange line through the sky in upper left
2) Upper right, strange artifact that looks triangular.
3) Directly below, those funny clouds that have neat circle openings.
I'm not suggesting photoshop or aliens... it's just in my nature to sky watch.
Thanks for posting!

That's the best explanation I've heard.
I'll try to find out what they are made of.

Strong sericitic-quartzitic slates coroded by rains and winds.

Yes I didn't notice that. of course you have to be right.

Admitedly it does look superimposed. Looks can be decieving obviously.

you are right, about being a photoshop efect.
It's called High Dinamic Range, or HDR(the firs pic) the purpose is toenhance the colors, shades, exposure and overall awesomeness of the image.
with a full size version avalible you'll note the difference.
it's not a fake.

Yeah that sounds like the most logical explanation...

For a more "out there" idea i thought that maybe they were giant carving/statues that have eroded over time... although i do realise that that’s very unlikely

i have to agree, that first pic looks as if the camp is super imposed onto the pictire....the lighting seems too perfect in a way. Maybe it was just a perfect setting...,

Perhaps we shall name that picture....... Little rock on the Praire!!!

My first thought as with others was that they were formed by either volcanic vents or molten lava creeping through a cavity in a sedimentary rock and then solidifying, over the years as weather eroded the sedimentary rock the volcanic rock is left behind. Those are the two most plausible explanations i have.

A third but very unlikely possibility is that they were moved by glacial activity. Glaciers move some serious boulders but i think that one is a little far fetched.


all i can really say is thank you for sharing this as i had never heard of them and they are really amazing things to see, even in a photo.

Cool rocks!
Reminds me of the type of rock formations around the "Old Man of Storr" on Isle of Skye, Scotland.

I'll add a link to one of my photos of that below;

...and YES, that is all natural rock formations!

a google view will be good


They're too small to be visible in google earth, but it does have several pictures of the rocks.

Location is roughly 62 15N 59 17E.

Through earthquakes and all those things still stand, they are a wonder. I'm starting to wonder more and more that western history and other science have either consciously or unconsciously have left stuff out of their research or ignored things because it either points to another mystery or it doesn't fit their world view. Just like the Sumerians the Minoans (we almost had our culture based on this civilization instead of Greek) and other cultures and places, we have to dig or find out by accident about these and other places and cultures because much of the western world has decided to leave stuff out. How did these things form on a flat hillly plain.

Thanks for the post. Very interesting.
I think I may have discovered my new favorite rock group!

Correct, its a great HDR at that.

The easiest way to explain how they are made is by 3 or so shots back to back using diffrent exposure settings. When combined, it makes amazing colors/lighting.
