The Waterfall With Lava Columns • • • It might look like a tall waterfall, but when you are standing right in front of it, you will notice that it is actually not that impressive. At least that was my opinion because at 20 meters, this one is quite a shorty! But what makes Svartifoss impressive? I think you can tell from this picture. Svartifoss means Black Falls because the waterfall is surrounded by dark lava columns, which looks very unique! These basalt columns looking like church organs have inspired some unique architectural works in Iceland! • • • Svartifoss, Skaftafell, Iceland 🇮🇸 • • • • • #icelandroadtrip #visiticeland #icelandadventure #extremeiceland #icelandnature #skaftafell #svartifoss #theconstantlycurious #basaltcolumns #planetwanderlust #waterfallhike #mothernaturerocks #awesomeearthpix #departuresmag #happyadventuring #lessismoreoutdoors

THROUGH ICELAND Crazy to see how nature takes on so many different shapes. These basalt columns are formed when lava cools down. Can you imagine that this columns where once hot lava? You can find these columns everywhere over the world (if the place is or was vulcanic) but these beauties I’ve found on Iceland. Have you ever seen some of these columns?

It’s my Friday 😀 yay! #TBT beautiful iceland 🇮🇸 where we were totally spoilt with 5 days of glorious sunshine ☀️ We haven’t seen a single episode of Game of Thrones... maybe we are weird just doesn’t appeal. Apparently a scene is filmed on this beach. Anyways - I just liked it for the view and for basalt columns in the rock! 💙 #viewsoficeland #traveliceland #wanderlusttribe #travelthursday #viewsfordays #icelandisawesome #wonderful_places #landscapelovers #icelandlove #visiticeland #blueskiesandsunshine #basaltcolumns #icelandtrip #icelandroadtrip #iceland_photography #icelandtour #takemeback #reynisfjarabeach #reynisfjara #vik #travellater #exploreiceland #traveliceland #travelspiration #livetoexplore #lovetoexplore #coupleswhotravel

Pour clore cette visite chez un particulier, dans l'Aubrac, mon regard se pose sur un amas de pierres à l'orée de la forêt.⠀ ⠀ Ce sont des orgues basaltiques. Ils sont très courants dans la région où l'on peut voir des formations géologiques naturelles composées de colonnes régulières. Elles résultent de la solidification et de la contraction thermique d'une coulée basaltique.⠀ ⠀ Les pierres aux reflets argentés se fondent avec le tronc des hêtres. Issues de murs démolis, elles ont été déposées là avant d'être réutilisées et sont, pour l'heure divinement éclairées par un rayon de soleil hivernal qui s'est immiscé entre les nuages et les troncs. En attendant elles serviront certainement de refuge à des mammifères et autres rongeurs. Elles seront ensuite rapidement colonisées par les mousses et autres plantes qui profiteront de ce changement dans l'écosystème pour se développer.⠀ ⠀ La permaculture nous enseigne comment observer avec précision les écosystèmes naturels pour tenter d'en reproduire certaines composantes et interactions dans nos jardins. Nous avons ici un exemple de ce que la nature peut offrir en terme d'élégance minimaliste qui caractérise, selon moi, l'éco-paysagisme.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ http://www.adrienfelsmann.fr⠀⠀⠀ http://www.linkedin.com/in/afelsmann⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #aveyron #aubrac #foret #forest #ecosystem #moss #rocks #basaltcolumns #jardinsauvage #wildgarden #paysagisteconcepteur #amenagementpaysager #paysagisme #paysage #permaculture #jardin #biodiversité #nature #landscapedesign #landarch #landdesign #agroecology #landscape #landscaping #plantingdesign #outdoordesign #gardendesign #gardeninspiration #garden

Studlagil Basalt Canyon in Iceland. It was hidden under water for a long time until the hydroelectric plant was built. A few years ago, the waterflow in the glacier river was extremely reduced that makes it possible to see the Basalt Column Canyon. Stuðlagil Canyon has one of the biggest and most beautiful basalt columns formation in Iceland. . .

The columnar basaltic lava found in these Islands, which is very well developed in the basalts of Deccan Traps, exhibit an imposing range of hexagonal shaped or multi-faced (polygonal) columns split into a horizontal mosaic. In geological terms these are called "columnar joints".[1] The lava rocks form regular five, six or seven-sided pillars, called "laminar lava", and are found in varying heights in all the islands; the tallest of the columns is about 6 m (20 ft). Considering the importance and rarity of such an occurrence, these islands were classified as a National Geological Monument in 2001 by the Geological Survey of India.[8][10] The Deccan Traps that formed during Cretaceous–Eocene time about 60 million years ago emerged from the vast deluge of hot molten basaltic lava in the western part of India which is now seen as flat topped hills and step like terraces.[1]Scientific studies carried out at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay on the petrology, palaeomagnetism and volcanics of the rocks of the island has brought out the following facts.[11] . . . #geography #geografia #basalt#earth #earthscience#basaltcolumns#geologypage #geologystudent #geology #geologia #travelphotography #travel #science #bilim #naturalpattern #naturalart #drone #azores #island #volcanoes_life#ycmgeology #geologyrocks

Columnes basàltiques, sorra negra, aus volant i zero turistes, fotografia captada al moment precís. 👌 Encara que no ho sembli, aquí estavem en una de les platges més visitades a l'illa, a Reynisfjara Beach. És una platja de sorra negra on les columnes basàltiques arriben a l'aigua. El mar gairebé sempre està picat i s'ha de vigilar molt amb les onades. De fet, només d'arribar trobem una senyalització de perill avisant que no ens apropem a la vora, i és que ja hi han hagut accidents fatídics. ⚠️ #Iceland #reynisfjara #Islandia #adventures #blackbeach #basaltcolumns

Aldeyarfoss, Ísland, quasi un anno fa Spesso, in questo periodo, penso ai luoghi in cui vorrei essere in questo momento e ai primi che vorrei visitare non appena possibile. Sono tutti caratterizzati da un forte richiamo emotivo, alcuni per via del fattore umano, altri per via della loro sconvolgente bellezza. Spesso, in questo periodo, mi sento come le colonne di basalto che contengono la potenza di questa cascata. Spero che le mie colonne siano solide, almeno un po'. #basaltcolumns #aldeyarfoss #island #iceland

Almost every picture I saw of the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland portrayed the beautiful geometric columns emerging from the water with the water in the distance. I had no idea that the surrounding landscape was so amazing in its own right! Very rarely do I see a picture of the mountainous background. After our trip there, I now think of the columns slowly descending into the sea from the mountains; and not the other way around!

What often comes to mind while thinking of Icelandic nature are these fascinating basaltic columns. This structure in lava is formed during the cooling process, mainly if the cooling process is quick. When the lava cools, it contracts. This is because hot things generally take up more room than cold things. When objects contract, they often crack or fracture. 🏙🌋🏙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every lava layer is jointed, often roughly, and it is not easy to see unless you know what you are looking at. But it is rare to see the columns so satisfyingly symmetric and hexagonal like these ones. The columns align themselves perpendicular to where the cooling is coming from. So, in this case, the cooling was from the top or the bottom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏙🌋🏙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The formation of columns is especially enhanced by the presence of water, often when lava flows into rivers in valleys and are cooled down quickly by a river flowing over them. In a way, this structure indicates that the lava was “shocked,” and it has to “think fast” and adjust itself to the cooled down state.
