10 astonishing paradoxes of nature 4/3/2016 • Dale
Everything in the world exists in harmony. Anyway, even nature doesn't always obey its own laws and that's where amazing paradoxes begin!
Can you imagine a flowering desert, underwater pines or an ocean full of stars? All these things are real and created by almighty nature.
#1 A place where lava meets the ocean, Big Island, Hawaii
The lava of the most active Hawaiian volcano flows down into the ocean to cool down for good.
#2 Travertine lakes and pools, Huanglong, China
The Chinese believe these surreal travertine landscapes are dragon's skin, which he sloughed, flying over the valley.
#3 A flowering desert, Anza-Borrego, California, the USA
For most of a year Anza-Borrego is an ordinary desert: dry and empty. But every March, after rainy winter, it becomes a true blossoming paradise.
#4 A burning hill, Yanar Dag, Azerbaijan
This natural gas fire burns constantly. No wonder Azerbaijan is also known as the land of fire.
#5 Underwater pines, Lake Kaindy, Kazakhstan
It used to be an ordinary forest, but once it was overwhelmed by water after an earthquake. The pines continued growing right out of the water!
#6 An ocean full of stars, Vaadhoo island, Maldives
The water here looks like the night sky full of stars! This amazing illumination is created by bioluminescent plankton of the Indian Ocean.
#7 Ghost trees, Sindh, Pakistan
During the flooding in Pakistan spiders had to climb up the trees and settle down there for a while. As a result, they cocooned a lot of trees in the webs.
#8 Manpupuner rock formations, Komi, Russia
According to an old legend, these 7 abnormal rocks, also called Seven Strong Men Rock Formations, used to be an an entourage of powerful giants.
#9 A pink lake, Hillier, Australia
It's not the only pink lake in the world. But the nature of its color is not explained by the scientists yet.
#10 Flying goats, Morocco
The goats are not flying here, they are just hungry! Dry climate leaves poor animals with not enough grass to eat, so they just have to master climbing skills.
