Caption: Stalagmites in a cave. Stalagmites are formed when calcium carbonate precipitates from water droplets that have dripped onto the floor of a cave. These large (10-15 metre high) stalagmites may eventually reach the ceiling, forming stone pillars. Photographed at the Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico, USA.
