Photo taken on Sept. 27, 2017 shows the Danxia landform in Zhongji Township of Shenmu City, northwest China's Shaanxi Province. Geologists in Shaanxi Province have found a new Danxia landform, characterized by reddish sandstone features, thought to be the largest such site in the country. The S-shaped site, which features a rugged red landscape that emerged from river silt deposits dating back more than 99 million years, runs from Yulin City in the north of Shaanxi to the center of the province, the provincial land and resources department announced Saturday.
