Strange & Mysterious Land Pillars In Northern Italy That Look Like An Alien Planet

These eerie scenes were captured in the Alps of Northern Italy were alien-like pillars reach into the air like jagged teeth.

Shot by photographer Kilian Schönberger, he calls this series "Otherworld". Each shot is shrouded in mist, emphasizing the strangeness of the earthen anomalies.

Though they look like upside-down cave stalagmites, the columns are known as "earth pyramids".

Where did these come from? Why are they here? The answer is likely ancient, having something to do with the slow carving away of the earth due to water running over it. Other possibilities hint at a landslide or some other unhinging of the earth being the culprit.

No matter what caused it, the leftover landscape is utterly breathtaking. We can't help but feel like we're viewing another planet in this series.
