Summary Author: Christos Kotsaftis
The bizarre-looking small hills shown above are found in the Komolithi area on the island of Crete near Potamída (Greece). They're completely barren except for tufts of vegetation on their tops. Composed almost entirely of clay, years of erosion by wind and water has sculpted  their distinctive conical shapes. Photo taken in the Tiflos River Valley about mi (35 km) west of the city of Chania, on June 5, 2016.
