Our planet is a marvelous place, from the life it contains to the ecosystems and landscapes. Have you ever wondered how diverse these landscapes can be? From massive ice sheets in the antarctic, to some of the hottest places on Earth, the variations in landscapes are endless. While there can only be a finite number of different landscapes on our planet, we do have some that will make you think they’ve been created on the computer, or maybe the government has secretly visited other worlds. While the latter is extremely unlikely, take a look at the following twenty images captured on our magnificent planet, and prepare to be amazed.
These hills may look like something that could be found on another planet, but they are actually landforms known as The Zhangye Danxia Landforms and are found in China, the various landscapes consist of a unique type of petrographic geomorphology, and are formed from red-colored sandstones and conglomerates of very large cretaceous age.
The landscapes have been said to look like karst topography that form in areas underlined by limestone.
