actually, i don't know if it's the right cathegory ... that place is a natural phenomenon, yeah, but i didn't wanna picture that side of the stone forest, i meant it's like a sacred place, a heathen place with ancient spirit and so on... ok you got my point (i hope ^^)

the stone forest, varna, bulgaria

Why do you think it is a natural phenomena? Where did the stones come from that are sitting in this sand landscape? With the stone circle around the larger middle stones and then the out lying stones, it looks like a man-made formation. The stones look ancient and weathered. Without an archeological investigation it is impossible to determine how old this, I suspect, man-made formation is.

Hello there.

First, I worked on this place nearly five years, so I'm quite acquainted with the theories about its origin.
For now, we assume it's a natural phenomenon. What we know for certain is that this area was under the sea about fifty million years ago (plus-minus ten million), because, when you walk around, you see all those tiny seashells and fossils in the sand and on the stones. Scientists still haven't agreed on how did the stones finally took these forms, because, as you've seen, it gives the impression of being man-made.
However, people who support the theories that it's man-made lack evidences. The circle on this photo is the only spot in the whole area (about 2 square km) that we certainly know is made by man, because it happened in the 80s and the person that arranged the stones in such a way is still alive. All other versions sound more like a science fiction story for retards, at least the ones I've heard.
I'm no geologist and I can't bring more solid arguments, but from being there all this time, I've come up with my own conclusions. Of course, we can't know for certain, not yet. It's a mystery and this is what is drawing thousands people to this place every year.

I hope I've answered your questions :)

И композицията ме кефи. Само обработката ми е малко тежка, но аз по принцип предпочитам по-естествено изглеждащи снимки, затуй.

Ясно :Д всъщност почти нищо не направих, само оправих контраста и потъмних, слънцето беше много скапано и не се получи точно както исках

Ist ja toll! Wie alt ist denn das, weißt du das zufällig? Solche Relikte sind hier leider alle zerstört... :/
Wir haben "nur" einen rekonstruierten Thing-Platz in der Nähe.

Erm.... das ist ein Naturphänomen und ist 50 Mil. Jahre alt; der Kreis ist künstlich gemacht, weiß ich aber nicht wann ...
