This humble looking flower……
When it rains or gets wet with water, this is how it looks,
Because the flower absorbs water, it gets transparent and resembles a skeleton.
Its scientific name is Diphylleia Grayi and found in Southeast Asia and parts of Japan.
- Salar de uyuni :-
It’s the world’s largest salt flat, located in Bolivia. During the rainy season (roughly between January and April), a shallow layer of water accumulates on the surface and turns it into a mirror of the heavens.

It’s a lake, yes. But it’s also a bomb. Those pale blue blobs, stacked like floating pancakes down at the bottom of this photograph? They’re astonishingly beautiful, yes, but they can be dangerous.
They are gas bubbles, little hiccups of methane that look magical when they’re trapped in winter ice, but come the spring, those bubbles will loosen, get free, and like an armada of deep-water flying saucers, they will make their way to the surface. When the ice breaks they will pop and fizz into the air — and disappear.
- Blood falls, Antartica
Blood Falls is an outflow of an iron oxide-tainted plume of saltwater, flowing from the tongue of the Taylor Glacier onto the ice-covered surface of West Lake Bonney in the Taylor Valley of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Victoria Land, East Antarctica.
Iron-rich hypersaline water sporadically emerges from small fissures in the ice cascades. The saltwater source is a subglacial pool of unknown size overlain by about 400 m of ice at several km from its tiny outlet at Blood Falls.
- Blue lava, Indonesia
Hydrogen chloride released from Ijen volcano mixed with the lake and turned it into an acidic monstrosity that it is today. What makes this place even more stunning, specially at night, is shots of sulfuric gases that combust into glints of bright blue upon contact with air. The phenomenon looks extremely stunning and surreal.
- Sailing stones :-
The pic below shows the mysterious moving stones of the packed-mud desert of Death Valley.
Rocks weighing up to hundreds of pounds have been known to move up to hundreds of yards at a time.
- Volcanic lightning
The picture shows a lightning storm that takes place in the middle of a volcanic eruption.
It is assumed that when a volcano erupts, it projects positively-charged debris into the atmosphere. These charges then react with negative charges already present, which results in a bolt of lightning.
- Desert rose
It is the name given to rosette formations of the minerals gypsum and barite with sand inclusions.
