The Rainbow Landscape   Zhangye Danxia, China inspiration

Patternbank stumbled upon a collection of staggering images of the Zhangye Danxia landscape in China. The Geological Park in Gansu is a unique example of petrographic geomorphology, this vibrant landscape is the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits being layed down over 24 million years, creating a rainbow of strata. Natural conditions such as water flow fissures, errosion, oxidisation and tectonic plate movements all contribute to this astonishing multicoloured landscape.
