The Most Beautiful And Amazing Things In Nature You Would Not Believe Really Exist

Updated on March 25, 2014

Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees

The Rainbow Eucalyptus trees on Maui, Hawaii are one of the island's most beautiful trees. They can be found at various locations around the island, including the forests along Hana Highway and Maui Winery (Tedeschi Winery).

These trees get their name from the fact, that they shed patches of bark at different times throughout the year, revealing a bright green inner coat, which gradually matures to shades of blue, purple, orange and maroon.

These trees are used for pulpwood plantations, which are used for making paper.



Shimmering Shores Of Vaadhoo

The shimmering shores of Vaadhoo, Maldives get their name from the, biological light, or bioluminescence, seen in the waves, as a product of marine microbes called phytoplankton.

These phytoplanktons have the property of bioluminesce, which allows them to glow as a defensive mechanism. On being agitated they let off their glow ,creating stars in the ocean as the waves ripple them to shore.

Cenote, Underground Natural Spring in Mexico

Cenote, Underground Natural Spring in Mexico, was created as a result of, the collapse of the limestone bedrock, resulting in the exposure of the groundwater, that was present underneath.

The Dirty Thunderstorm.

A dirty thunderstorm, also “Volcanic lightning” is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume.

It has been indicated in various studies,that these electrical charges are generated when the rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume, collide and produce static charges.

These volcanic eruptions also release large amounts of water, which may help fuel these thunderstorms.

Underwater Forest in Kaindy Lake

The Kaindy lake, is 400 meters long and is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains, about 129 km from the city of Almaty.

It was created after an earthquake in 1911, that triggered a large landslide, blocking the gorge and forming a natural dam.

Its most remarkable and unique feature is that it contains an underwater forest, which retain the pine needles along their trees, even after a hundred years of being submerged.

The Ghost Trees in Pakistan

The Ghost trees in Pakistan receive their name from the silky webs that shroud them.

This phenomenon is thought to be an aftermath of the, 2010's massive floods, which drove millions of spiders and possibly other insects into the trees, to spin their webs.


Light Pillars Over Moscow

Light pillars are visual phenomenon, that occur when light reflects off the near horizontal parallel planar surfaces.

These pillars, which are often mistaken for UFO sightings, are basically produced by sunlight, moonlight or artificial manmade light situated along the horizon.

The Wave Arizona

The Wave is a sandstone formation on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, located in northern portion of the U.S. state of Arizona.

This beautiful sandstone formation is famous among hikers and photographers for its colorful and undulating forms.

Reflective Salt Flats in Bolivi

These flats are located in Southern Bolivia near the country's Tunupa volcano. They make up the world's largest salt desert, around 11,000 km sq in dimension.

The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar.

The layer of salt crust that covers the ground is so reflective, that it is said to perfectly mirror the sky.

The Blood Falls in Antartica

The Blood Falls get their name from an outflow of 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.

These give an appearance, like blood running from a cut in the glacier.



Northern lights or Aurora Borealis

The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights seen above the magnetic poles of the northern hemisphere are called 'Aurora borealis', whereas the lights seen above the southern hemispheres are referred to as 'Aurora australis.

In medieval times, the occurrences of auroral displays were seen as harbingers of war or famine. The Maori of New Zealand shared a belief with many northern people of Europe and North America that the lights were reflections from torches or campfires.

The lights, appear in several forms, ranging from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow.
