Skyscrapers on Saturn's Rings

New images from the Cassini probe exploring the Saturn system, show something pretty amazing:

Look at those structures. Miles high, probably. What could cause them? Probably some perturbation from one of Saturn's moons, But how? We've seen scallops in rings (see below) but what in the world is this?

We live in an astounding universe, and understand so little about our own solar system.
