Danxia Lanforms China
It might look like the aftermath of filming the Sony Bravia ad, but this is actually a national geopark in China's Guangdong province formed mainly of sandstone.
It's hard to imagine but 100 million years ago the whole area was just a basin filled with silt from the surrounding mountains. When the basin dried up the sediment oxidized and turned rust colour, and later formed a chalk bed out of which grew mountains. Water flowing down through fissures cut and eroded the sedimentary rock, giving rise to spectacular peaks, pillars and cliffs.
This 'orogenic' movement is still going on, with an average rise of 0.87m every 10000 years. What is probably the most colourful canvas of natural stone pigments on the planet was given World Heritage status in 2010.
