Columns of Basalt

Panská skála (German: Herrenhausfelsen) is a natural monument in the Czech Republic. The top of the today about 30 meters high basalt elevation lies at 597 meters above sea level and consists of vertical and slightly oblique, but very regularly arranged columns of up to 12 meters in length, with a diameter of 20 to 40 centimeters. The columns of basalt were created by volcanic processes in the Tertiary. (Wikipedia)
