hard granite

This area of the Bohemian Forest is called "Steinernes Meer" ("Stone Sea"). Everywhere in this area you can find peculiar rock towers like in this photo. These are remnants of a strong volcanic activity hundreds of millions of years ago. The stones look almost soft with their pillow shapes, in fact it's hard granite. They pile up like a Land Art staging, but are results of nature. Many myths and legends are entwined around these stone towers. In some places are hollows that suggest that they were already serving the Celts as sacrificial stones. Some say that these stone towers are places of magical power.
Wow, it is so majestic looking.

It sounds like you have another very special place here. The rocks in their layers are looking superbly crisp, and it is lovely to see the live tree and the heather to the left of the image in contrast to those bare trunks.

This is wonderful, love interesting rock formations. Looks like more of those bark-beetled trees in the background. They must be a serious menace.

love the sense black and white play of the stone and clouds. Spiky trees make for great texture.

Ich liebe es. Es erinnert mich an Brimham Rocks in Yorkshire. Dieser Ort ist auch voll von seltsamen Felsformationen in solchen Stapeln.
