This world is full of wonders you wouldnt believe existed in Nature. To truly comprehend
these magnificent sights, you must witness them for yourself. so here are 7 Amazing things

1. The Volcanic Lightning of Iceland

This epic display of lightning in Iceland is what scientist call a dirty thunderstorm.
The electrifying phenomena happens when rock fragments, such as ash collide with ice
particles in a volcanic cloud: As it is carried up into higher than normal parts of the
atmosphere, it starts creating static with the surface of the planet thus providing the
electrical charge needed for very powerful lightning.
2. The Beautiful Flammable Frozen Bubbles of Abraham
Lake

Abraham Lake in Alberta Canada is home to a rare phenomenon that needs to be seen to
believe. Trapped under its frozen surface, methane gas creeps its way up creating beautiful
air bubbles as it freezes and melts and freezes and melts as the flammable element searches
for its way out.

The methane is created when plants, and animals in the lake sink to the bottom and react
with the bacteria in the water. the bacteria begins to break down the organic matter,
decomposing them, slowly releasing the gas.
Usually the gas floats its way to the top of the lake where it is released in the air, but when
the lake freezes over, methane struggles a little more to find its freedom. Its hardship
shapes moving images, leaving admirers breathless.
What I wonder, is that if you could set one of those bubbles on fire (at least at the top of the
surface), what would happen? Surely it would be like Oil on fire on the top of the water, if
not even something even more epic
3. The Super Crystals of Naica, Mexico

Mexicos Cueva de los Cristales (Cave of Crystals) is home to the largest natural crystal
formations found anywhere in the world that we know of. Thriving
under unbelievably rare conditions, this cave in Mexico provided the perfect environment
for these crystals to grow to incredible sizes.

Geologist Juan Manuel Garcia-Ruiz explains in an issue of Geology, that for millennia these
crystals grew in a consistent 136 degrees Fahrenheit (58 degrees Celsius), filled with
mineral-rich water that hyper boosted the growth of these amazing beauties. To this day,
nobody knows if another spot exists with crystals this largeor how much larger they might
be.
4. The Pink Lake Hillier of Australia
When you think of what color a lake might be; blue, brown, maybe even green may come to
mind. I doubt you would ever associate the color pink with of body of water. For anyone
traveling over the western islands of Australia, this unbelievable phenomenon can be
witnessed with their own eyes.
The captivating pink lake is not a trick of the light, and it retains its hue when removed, but
the origin of its bubble gum aesthetics remains a mystery to which the scientific community
of the world is still trying to solve. The best guess right now is that it has to do with the high
salt levels in the water. Being that Lake Hillier is 10 times saltier than the ocean, it is the
perfect breeding ground for the salt loving micro-algae Dunaliella Salina.
These tiny little guys produce pigment compounds that absorb light like Beta Carotene
which is the same kind of stuff that makes carrots orange and some cabbages purple and
what colour do you get when you put those two colours together? Odds are, its probably

something like that picture above
5. The Reflective Salt Flats of Bolivia

Salar de Uyuni is the worlds largest salt flat coming in at 10,582 square kilometers
(4,086 sq mi).
Located in southwest Bolivia, These breathtaking salt flats are definitely on the list of things
you need to see before you die. Resulting from the transformation of several prehistoric
lakes, which over eons have left a water salted crust over this vast flat, Salar de Uyuni is a
mesmerizing sight to witness as you watch it reflect the sky ever so beautifully. Walking
through this mirrored wonderland, one might mistake which way is up and which way is
down.

This eerie vision of ghost trees is actually an act of survival from millions of spiders in
the village of Sindh, Pakistan.
In 2010, massive flooding forced millions of spiders to seek shelter in the higher grounds of
the tree tops, and over time the have created intricately beautiful webbed homes for
themselves in the most peculiar of places. When you step outside yourself and just observe
the nature of what is created here it is really quite beautiful!
7. The Shimmering Shores of Vaadhoo Maldives

This midnight light show on the shores of Vaadhoo, Maldives however unbelievable is not
the result of an elaborate Photoshop. It is however the result of tiny marine microbes called
phytoplankton washing up on the sand. By day, these tiny microbes paint the sand a murky
red and brown color But by night, an entirely new painting is formed as beautiful as
nothing youve ever seen.
There are many types of phytoplankton that are known to have an ability called bio-
luminescence which allows them to glow as a defensive mechanism to scare predators and
lure even bigger predators to eat the ones looking to eat them (Oh, the circle of life). When
these plankton are agitated they let off their glow creating stars in the ocean as the waves
ripple them to shore.
Why is this important?
The earth is an absolutely an amazing place! When you sit back and let nature do its thang,

it creates absolutely incredible stuff. It has no choice, its designed to by its very nature. If
we can let our egos get out of the way for just a minute, we can also see that we too are
nature. We can create super amazing stuff, perhaps the likes of which even God has never
seen!
