Aerial view of the Bungle Bungle Range, Kimberley, Australia

Look closely at these sandstone domes and you’ll see alternating stripes of orange and gray bands. Folks in the know call them BIFs, short for 'banded iron formations.' The gray bands contain moisture which sustains dark-colored cyanobacteria, while the orange stripes are oxidized iron deposits. The beehive-like formations were first deposited roughly 350 to 375 million years ago in what is now Western Australia's Kimberley region. Local Aboriginal people have known these formations for over 20,000 years, but they weren't widely known to others until as recently as 1982. The Bungle Bungles rise from the grasslands of the remote Purnululu National Park.

Ancient ruins in Petra, Jordan

When the ancient city of Petra reached its peak about 2,000 years ago, most of its structures were carved directly into the sandstone cliffs in the mountains of southern Jordan. These cliffside structures were used primarily as tombs or temples. Many are remarkably well-preserved, including Petra’s most renowned sight: Al Khazneh (the Treasury), whose soaring façade emulates Greek and Roman architecture.

The columns in our image are set away from the cliffs and are part of a freestanding collection of what remains of colonnaded streets and temple buildings. In addition to the incredible cliff-carved structures and huge temple complex, Petra also features an enormous amphitheater cut into a hillside. With all this, it’s no wonder the name Petra stems from the Latin word 'petrae,' meaning 'rock.'
