Otherworld ‘Earth Pyramids’ Captured in the Foggy Early Morning Light by Photographer Kilian Schönberger



Photographer Kilian Schönberger (previously) climbed the Alps late at night to capture one of the mountain range’s strangest segments. Alien-like columns found in South Tyrol, an autonomous province in Northern Italy. His series Otherworld showcases the so-called “earth pyramids” in a hazy dawn light, strange creations that appear like stalagmites freed from their underground caves.

The structures are created by erosion, rising from clay soil left behind by glaciers from the last Ice Age.

Each features a large boulder resting on top which protects the soil below.

The otherworldly elements remind Schönberger of the hoodos in the Southwestern United States.

However, the two naturally occurring wonders are formed from two very different geological processes.
