We used to do that during night dives. Turn off all lights, and waves your arms back and forth under the water, and the plankton would light up like sparks. Very cool, didn't realize an entire bay of the things existed.

Have not seen a single one of those in person (have seen a decent bit, but nothing like those)...I will add those all to my list of things to do before I die!!!

Amazing pictures. Hopefully when I am old (and hopefully rich and retired with nothing to do), I will go to each of these locations!

Or maybe even hit some of them sooner...

An awesome thread!

To me, this one is the most extraordinary! No Thunder!

Catatumbo’s everlasting storm, Venezuela


Remember the saying that lightning never strikes in the same place twice? Forget that. A remarkable site at the mouth of the River Catatumbo, branching off Maracaibo Lake in western Venezuela, is the stage for an amazing lightshow on average 150 nights a year, totalling a million flashes annually. Oddly though, no thunder follows the lightning. The bizarre phenomenon is found nowhere else on Earth, and is thought to be the single biggest generator of ozone on the planet.


I think this is very much a great example of how the earth is a living being, trying to fix its outer skin. A nice thought indeed.

instead of finding ways to bring everyone to these different places, the world finds ways to destroy the chance for everyone to see.

The world is so filled with endless beauty: what are we to see once we leave? oh man.. If there's ever a reason to become "rich" these pics are it for the reason of affording travel.

thanks for the visual vacation

Thanks for an awesome picture show...
These are absolutely beautiful, I have never seen these before.
There is no telling what else is out there that hasn't been discovered.

These are absolutely amazing.

S + F

The pictures make me want to go travelling and see the world. It is a shame that such beauty is often lost due to mankind.

Quite interesting...thanks!

National Geographic did a documentary on the Crystal Caves. A bunch of scientists went down in there, figured out what makes it tick.

At some point in the future they will flood the cave again to prevent damage to the crystals.

Those pictures shows how beautiful
our mother earth is. I'd never trade planet like this for any other. I just hope one day we'll understand variety and uniqueness of our planet and find unity in it's diverseness. That would be something

These are amazing places and it is an interesting article.....

That is exactly what I thought when I read it on MSN Travel last week.

I see that you were good enough to copy it word for word and all the pictures, you should have cited your source and not tried to pass this work off as your own.

What a wonderful world these wonders willfully whisk without want while wasting no whim to wander the wind.

Really cool post OP. I have never heard of the majority of these beautiful locations. Thanks for bringing such beauty to us all.

He used quotes, he just forgot to add the link I think. He would not have used quotes if he was passing it off as his own.
