This spectacular landform in Mauritania in the southwestern part of the Sahara desert, called the Richat Structure, is so huge with a diameter of 30 miles that it is visible from space. The formation was originally thought to be caused by a meteorite impact but now geologists believe it is a product of uplift and erosion. The cause of its circular shape is still a mystery.

Star trails over the Australian outback.
Circles, Stars Trail, Lincoln Harrison, Photographer, Long Exposure, Earth, Night Sky, Australian Outback, Cameras
Australian photographer Lincoln Harrison spends hours with his camera set on a tripod in the Australian Outback trained on the night sky. He then joins hundreds of images of the foreground and the stars together to create magnificent star trail pictures of beauty spots near Lake Eppalock in the southern state of Victoria. The colourful spirals are the result of the Earth moving, creating the impression that the stars are travelling across the night sky. Picture: LINCOLN HARRISON / CATERS

Aogashima (“blue island”) is a tropical, volcanic island in the Phillipine Sea. Despite being over 200 miles away from the country’s capital, Aogashima is governed by Tokyo. In fact, a whole stretch of tropical and sometimes uninhabited islands called the Izu Islands are technically part of Tokyo. Volcanic islands? Not typically what comes to mind when you think of Tokyo. Only about 200 people live on this remote island.

2 de Noviembre Día de Muertos
Dia de los Muertos in Mexico. This celebration occurs every year on the 31st October and lasts until the 2nd November. The Mexican cultures use this holiday to celebrate and honour their past loved ones. Candles, Catrina's, foods, sweets and bright colours are used in the celebration; I would like to reference this as pattern and colour in my final piece.
Dia de los Muertos, Mexico City by Luis Costa/AFP/Getty Images. Relatives of the deceased gather at Mexico City’s San Gregorio Atlapulco cemetery during Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, celebrations. The upbeat festival, which has roots in the ancient traditions of Mexico’s indigenous civilizations, was adjusted to the Catholic calendar following the Spanish conquest in the 16th century and is now held on November 1 and 2, correlating with All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day.

Great Barrier Reef one of the 7 natural wonders of the world
The Great Barrier Reef is one of Australia’s World Heritage areas and one of nature’s richest realms. Stretching over 2000km (1242 mi) from just below the tropic of Capricorn (near Gladstone) to just south of Papua New Guinea, it is the most extensive reef system in the world, and made entirely of living organisms.Pitching a tent on an island is a unique and affordable way to experience the Great Barrier Reef.

A Sea of Stars - Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton – I have Seen This At Huntington Beach, CA and it’s Breathtaking!!! Dream Vacations KC – CruiseOne Can Send You Here! Call Us To Learn How! 816-744-4040
This picture was taken on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives. The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of tiny marine life-forms called phytoplankton—and now scientists think they know how some of these sea creatures create their brilliant blue glow.
From National Geographic: "The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of tiny marine life-forms called phytoplankton" - We swam with them in Puerto Rico! How amazing!!
One of the most beautiful examples of evolutionary adaptation can be seen in this picture taken in the Maldives. The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton. Phytoplankton have adapted to the darkness of the ocean by utilising chemicals known as luciferins to ‘glow’.
The Maldives (via National Geographic): This bioluminescence is simply blue light from phytoplankton,microscopic sea creatures that secrete illuminating chemicals as a survival mechanism.
Pinpricks of light on the shore seem to mirror stars above in an undated picture taken on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives. The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton. - National Geographic
