Fairy Chimneys
Fairy Chimneys
Fairy chimneys are part of the surreal Kapadokyan landscape. The following I took from Wikipedia.org:
"The geology of areas where Fairy Chimneys form typically comprises a thick layer of tuff (consolidated volcanic ash), covered by a thin layer of basalt. Over time, cracks in the basalt allow the much softer tuff to be eroded and washed away. Fairy Chimneys are formed where a small cap or boulder of the original basalt remains, and protects a cone of tuff beneath it from erosion. Eventually, the tuff will be undercut to the extent that the cap falls off, and the remaining cone is then quickly eroded." (Location: Kapadokya - Üçhisar)
