Tidal bores in this area can reach up to 30 feet in height and move as fast as 25 miles per hour. In the scene above, captured by photographer Xu Kangping, surprised onlookers rush to escape the downpour of muddy river water.
German landscape photographer Andreas Wonisch hiked up to the Italian Dolomites with six other photographers. But they’d grossly underestimated the trek: the nearest accommodation was a kilometer away and up a steep trail.

Giraffes usually sleep standing up, but will occasionally take short naps lying on the ground while using their own backsides as pillows! Like this baby giraffe:|

Most of Davies’ photos are from around the Hamlet of Pangnirtung, Baffin Island, 20 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle. As he says on his website, it is a place for cold winter vistas, northern lights, twilight, and jagged mountain peaks.

Porcella’s friend, Max Haim, captured this unique and amazing shot. How’s that for an environmental portrait?
Can you tell what planet this is? Photographer Stéphane Vetter hopes you guessed Venus or Jupiter, but he, in fact, grabbed this eerie shot on Earth. The photos was taken from Iceland’s
It must have been a crisp night, because the ghostly green of the aurora borealis is lively in the background.
