TERRESTRIAL TOWERS OR EXTRATERRESTRIAL IMPLANTS
Friable terrain in some parts of the Earth where climate is marked by alternating periods of torrential rain and drought gets increasingly eroded which gives rise to wonderful earth pyramids.
I remember showing a photo of this site to someone from work (we usually employ smart people there) and she said that these structures must have been put there by extraterrestrial beings and that they weren’t nature-made. When she saw a shocked expression on my face she went on explaining: “look how some columns have hats and others don’t”. Still shocked, I kept listening to her (being too well-bred to throw her out of my office) when she elaborated on a big conspiracy why some such columns – she doubted the material they were made of, were covered (to be protected in her words), and others were not.
She eventually left, but from that time on whenever I look at my or others’ pictures of erosion pyramids I can’t help remembering the talk I had with the fool who maybe just wanted to poop on my party.
P.S. Don’t be fooled by the choice of music. My photos always follow the set theme, but the music I choose just reflects my current mood and taste. This photo was captured in Ritten, South Tyrol, and not in Turkey as the tune might suggest, which coincidentally abounds in wonderful natural phenomena such as earth pyramids.
This week the theme over at weekly photo challenge says: EARTH. This is my contribution.
