These are some fantastic pictures. It makes me wonder why billionaires even have homes. If I had an insane amount of money, I'd be all over the world!

I agree, if I was a billionare I would travel the world to see all the wonders just like these. All I would need is a plane =)

Thank you for all your effort on these pics they are beautiful

Nice work Jess...a beautiful HD photos too!!

isnt it ironic that Rio Tinto, one of the world's largest Mining Houses and by default one of the largest destroyers of our planet, takes its name from something of such strange beauty!!

thanks for sharing, and for your efforts and the time consumed assembling such a great layout !!

Those are sooo beautiful!
Giant Crystals are cool.

LOL, and don't forget this one The most alien-looking place on Earth

Almost the exact same title but it was a great thread and some of the pictures are missing now.

Not the exact list. I added others. And also, I provided link. I did not copy word for word, and I found the pictures on google, and not on the list site. So thank you.

God I dont understand why so many people are bashing this. Its just pictures calm down guys.

Very beautiful thread, nice work. I have heard of most of these places, being a geography buff, and assuredly there are many many more strange and fascinating places. I most appreciate the scale of these wonders, not like all of the anomalies around growing up in a coal mine town. We had orange, green and black ponds, a yellow and red creek, and the smoking bony dump, and the black powder fields, like black baby powder, oh and the cracked red mud dried pond.

An interesting place in northern Venezuela, The Everlasting Lightning Storm.

The mysterious “Relámpago del Catatumbo” (Catatumbo lightning) is a unique natural phenomenon in the world. Located on the mouth of the Catatumbo river at Lake Maracaibo (Venezuela), the phenomenon is a cloud-to-cloud lightning that forms a voltage arc more than five kilometre high during 140 to 160 nights a year, 10 hours a night, and as many as 280 times an hour.

BTW, most of the things I mentioned are visible on Google maps, but the coal mine is gone.

You know what, you seems to feel really strongly about this. If my thread is really bothering you guys I want nothing more for you to be happy, so ask a mod to take it down.

very nice collection of pics Jess. I especially like the tree pics, truly astounding. $&F!

Edit: Some of the lake pics look like bloody murder but still has its charms.

People please. Let us have a reality check here. The posts that were posted saying that this thread has already been posted, did the posters even bother reading the threads? The first one with the plagiarism has absolutely no content in the OP; therefore, the thread is basically not a resource. The second one was posted almost a year ago and has no pictures in the OP and no real description of what I am looking at. And now Jess has created a thread, added new information, posted pictures that were not posted before and brings this subject back to light that many members here, including myself, had NO IDEA about. Stop nip picking and just enjoy the thread for what it is. A great resource that allowed me and others to learn something. So stop derailing and add material to the thread that can be used to make the thread move forward. Not trying to play mod or anything, but I mean really?

Sorry about that Jess. But back on topic:

This reminded me of when scientists and artists got together to create what alien life (plants) might look like:

Studying the co-evolution of photosynthesis with its atmosphere means we were trying to determine whether plants are smart enough to work out where the best places are to get radiation for photosynthesis. If we can figure out that they are smart enough, and if we can figure out what rules they use to choose the pigments for photosynthesis, we wondered if we could apply those rules to other planets around other stars. Could we use them to predict where the photosynthetic pigments are going to be, and what color these plants are going to be? A colleague of mine, Nancy Kiang, and a bunch of her biologist friends went through all of the literature and found every pigment life uses for photosynthesis on this planet. And by pigment, I mean a particular type of molecule that’s specifically tuned to take in a particular type of light and turn that into food for the plant.
What life might look like

Artist representations, but they do bear resembles to what you posted. Also this thread made me think of alien structures as well, by kenny7:

Thank you Myth, I appreciate it.

Those pictures are beautiful! I would love to really see what other alien plants may look like. Some probably look similar and others, completely out of the ordinary! Heres to hoping we find a planet with life soon! Even if its just plant life.

I couldn't help but notice all the microbes in the pics.
Here is good perspective on it all:

They were surprised to find that people developed digestive problems when taking an antibiotic. The drug killed the "good" bacteria in the intestines as well as the "bad" bacteria that made them sick.

We Are Surrounded, by.....

If it wasn't what you were expecting, oh well.
Why would one be 'expecting' anything?
Anyhow, good read above.

For those that like to make gadgets, do you suppose a machine could be made (as a walk through metal detector) of which send just the right energy wave, or a specific wave signature, to destroy pathogenic microbes while retaining the good microbes necessary for a human life.....while in the flesh. This could reverse the entropic process. Just an idea. Maybe someone already has it, as one with a cherished new 'toy'.

Are not nanotechnologists doing this now?

Bad energy won't help one's situation regardless. It will destroy all life it encounters. Do not negative folks get you down, draw your energy? Yes they do. You know this whether you acknowledged it or not.

When one gets a glowing warm feeling, all life in the body is nourished. It is what could be called a symbiotic inflow of pure Energy. It releases powerful natural endorphins which promote healing to the body's cells.
Love works by intelligent design.
