This is a photo of pillars of sandstone that rise out of the ground near the town of Kalambaka, in central Greece. The rocks were formed by earthquakes and weathered by wind. I snapped the picture because the early morning fog contrasted nicely against the mossy rocks. The area is called Meteora, meaning ""hovering in the air"" which refers to the 14th century monastaries perched precariously on top of some of the rocks.
