Alien Landscape in the Italian Alps

The Italian Province of Bolzano, located in the north of the country, is known for its beautiful mountain landscapes. It was here that the photographer Kilian Shenberg managed to capture one of the strange parts of the Alpine Mountain Ridge.

These strange elongated formations are the result of many years of soil erosion. Giant stone boulders, brought here along with glaciers during the last glacial period, protect part of the surface from moisture and wind, while the soil level is gradually lowered.

In the end, a giant stone loses equilibrium and breaks down, and the column begins to collapse under the influence of weather conditions.
