Geologists have discovered hundreds of naturally occurring geological formations in all parts of the world. While they spend a great deal of time studying these formations, researchers suggest that there are still plenty more to be found.
These geological formations are created over the course of millions of years and form as a reaction to differing weather patterns, like rain, wind, erosion, and heat. Luckily for us, the end result is a natural, observable beauty.
That’s exactly why the photographers who captured these photographs of geological formations are so fortunate. You have to see just how beautiful they are…
