A PHOTO A DAY HELPS …… Day 158, Saturday

And finally for this week, a feast of extraordinary rock formations in Madagascar. Rare
and unique plants and animals have adapted to live in these extreme environments.

These razor-sharp, very hard grey limestone rocks called tsingys have been
‘carved’, seemingly impossibly, into bizarre natural sculptures by the elements.

Deep below these tsingys is a vast network of caves where
the landscape, colours, textures and shapes sculpted by
water are completely different – warm, soft and mellow.

 

In the far north east of Madagascar, there are “red tsingys” which aren’t
really tsingys as they are made of laterite rather than limestone.
