People often dream of visiting other planets, and one of humanity’s biggest goals over the past 50 years has been exploring our galaxy and attempting to land both robots and eventually humans on other planets and moons in our solar system. Thanks to film and videogames, a ton of possible environments have been visualized, spurring on humanity’s imagination about other planets.

There are plenty of places on Earth that look other-worldly too, however. With jagged canyons, seemingly mystical geysers and hot springs, deep ocean trenches and other environmental features, Earth has some fascinating places for landscape photography.

Here, I’ve selected 30 of the most alien-looking landscape photographs from places around the world.
