Snow Formations- Penitentes

Another natural formation I have never heard of or seen before are Penitentes, which are high altitude snow formations, in the shape of jagged snow peaks found in the Andes. A combination of sublimation, wind and radiation (process is far too complicated for the everyday person) lead to the formation of this stunning landscape.

Penitentes are just extraordinary and isn't something you'd imagine ever seeing. I'm glad to have found out about this, as I wonder how many more wonders there are to discover on Earth! I hope to discover more and share them with you!
