Let us journey through the weird and the wonderful. Our world has plenty of both.

Incredible land formations that don’t look real

Incredible landforms that don’t look real

 

Sometimes it feels as if we underestimate the eccentricities of nature. We expect it to be mild mannered and soft, all soft breezes and serene landscapes. And then you take a look around outside of your home and away from the general vicinity of your monitor and realise that nature has this underlying penchant for all things weird and trippy, and what with the resources that it has gave birth to incredible land formations that don’t look real;

  • The Marble Caves, Chile

What looks like Poseidon’s garage or possibly Aquaman’s pool house to get with the ladies is in reality the fruit of the slow laborious work of seawater that has slowly and maybe not quite meticulously carved its way through a giant rock forming the stunning Marble caves in Chile. The residue it left behind looks like a paint job to rival the Moroccan town of Chefchaouen.

  • Eucalyptus deglupta

Eucalyptus deglupta

This is clearly nature making a statement right here. A subtle one, but a statement nonetheless. Seriously, look at it. It is a rainbow coloured tree. What more could you possibly want from life? These fabulous Plantae can be found in an area spanning New Britain, New Guinea, Seram, Sulawesi and Mindanao. Now, scientifically what’s happening here is that as the bark of this tree gets older it gradually changes colour, and with the uneven way it peels, several colours can be seen at once. But I know an act of rebellion when I see one. Points for nature.

  • Fingal’s Cave, Scotland

This not so hidden cave in Scotland is totally a superhero lair. Or a super villain lair, depending on which way you roll. Unfortunately it isn’t underground, but it is partially filled with water for those who can appreciate a good dramatic effect. But that’s not the best part, the best part is the pixelated, hexagonal, stairs-of-doom inspired flooring.  The solidified lava cooled in a specific way inducing the formation of the geometrical columns that really do liven up the place so much and resulted in making one of the most incredible land formations that don’t look real. The structure of the wave turns the echoes of the waves into an eerie sound earning the Gaelic title of “the melodious cave.” Maybe Mother Nature should work as a freelance architect.

  • The Spotted Lake, Canada

This could either be the surface of the earth breaking out into something from very, very late puberty or geology was too inspired by Van Gogh and had to make do with what it had at hand. Now admittedly this is less a part of incredible land formations that don’t look real and more of a natural event. Whichever it may be, it is difficult to determine what emotions this art piece located in Canada evokes or should be evoking as a very mild but still there trypophobic trigger. Please do not Google that word if you do not know what it means. For the love of everything that is pure and smooth and remotely lovable, don’t do it. The good thing though is that this phenomenon of sorts only appears in the summer. Most of the water from the lake evaporates and the minerals from the water harden in the spots of water that remain and the colour of each spot is determined by the combination of minerals it contains.
