    FYI - Not so OOF

    Somebody sent me images of this place recently. Hmm! Spectacular, I thought.

    I wonder if anyone's seen this? (A job for dtoh?)
    Am.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    I'm not convinced they're real. I'm thinking surely I would have heard of this place before! They are so spectacular & I don't live in a shoe box.



    Update:

    Ok the place exists but it certainly doesn't look like the mountains in the photos. The colours are much more muted and the banding is nowhere as distinct.

    I assume it's a similar thing to some mountain I read about once (the name and place escape me) where the colours are bizarre, but the photos to show it are extremely exaggerated. I was looking at the pics in the link and either the person who made them has a lot of attention to detail or they are real and just saturated a lot. I picked points on one mountain and checked it against the pics of the same mountain but different angles and the markings and everything (including all the non-straight bits) seemed to line up.
    Still a new kid in the photography world

    ^ the work in the second last photo must have taken some effort.

    A bit like our Coloured Sands on Frazer Island.

    Sandstone can take up with many natural minerals to give off different colours.

    The red tones are usually iron oxide, the blue, copper, etc.

    They probably aren't as bright in colour as these photos depict, but decrease the saturation a bit, and you'll probably be close.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Play around with the saturation and hue sliders with a heavy hand ...... and there's no reason these mountains aren't real.

    The photo shown in the Telegraph link is probably more like how they appear to the human eye.
