Byrums Raukar - Lime Stone Formations

A rauk (Swedish plural: raukar) is a stone column created by natural erosion. Raukar can be found mainly on the islands of Gotland and Fårö but also on Öland. Many raukar have been eroded into unusual shapes. Odd limestone formations molded by erosion over millenniums, the strangely shaped, hulking gray stones contribute to the spooky, dramatically cinematic landscapes that inspired the director Ingmar Bergman, who lived and filmed on Farö, Gotland.
