They had stuff like this in Dragon Age Inquisition too. Makes for an interesting environment


JigglyWigglyWeegie

Looks like a very realistic Minecraft Shader.

I feel like this could be part of a movie set. Maybe used in Lord of the Rings


De5perad0

Yo I saw this last year. it is incredible!


KayTeePerry

So this is the inspiration for the rocks near the lighthouse in RuneScape...

[Columnar jointing!](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columnar_jointing) (aka, the aesthetically pleasing type of rock that is suddenly in every single video game ever)

**[Columnar jointing](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columnar_jointing)** >Columnar jointing is a geological structure where sets of intersecting closely spaced fractures, referred to as joints, result in the formation of a regular array of polygonal prisms, or columns. Columnar jointing occurs in many types of igneous rocks and forms as the rock cools and contracts. Columnar jointing can occur in cooling lava flows and ashflow tuffs (ignimbrites), as well as in some shallow intrusions. Columnar jointing also occurs rarely in sedimentary rocks if they have been heated by nearby hot magma. ^([ )[^(F.A.Q)](https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiSummarizer/wiki/index#wiki_f.a.q)^( | )[^(Opt Out)](https://reddit.com/message/compose?to=WikiSummarizerBot&message=OptOut&subject=OptOut)^( | )[^(Opt Out Of Subreddit)](https://np.reddit.com/r/NatureIsFuckingLit/about/banned)^( | )[^(GitHub)](https://github.com/Sujal-7/WikiSummarizerBot)^( ] Downvote to remove | v1.5)

Looks like something from Minecraft.

There won't BE any basalt pillars if we don't stop the banished


bubbaforreal

This is breathtakingly beautiful. Thank you.


jennysing

What I think is really cool is these are similar to Giants Causeway in northwestern Ireland and in Balancing Rock Nova Scotia. These land masses all touched when Pangea was the continent.

Obligatory ark related comment


SHARKHORSE2001

I didnt think basalt actually grew in pillars, cool. Also its funny how this is from iceland, a cold place, and mojang put it in a hot place


bok4600

looks like the planet Krypton


throwawaymyyhoeaway

How do you even get down to that level from those cliffsides?


AkiTheMeatball

Is that trash floating?


hydraulic-earl

Is that Bjork in the Fjord??


youpple3

Wait a minute! 🤔 By the "stumps" ,its evident, that there was more pillars some time before. Who took 'em?
