A company in India is enjoying success with its own unique take on the traditional greetings card.
Ijender Shekhawat’s “Elephant Stamp” business produces greetings cards created from undigested grass and leaf fibers found in elephant droppings.

The river delta of Camargue in France is home to the peculiar spectacle of water that turns blood red.
Scientists believe that the reason this happens is because of the high salt concentration in the water, the salt can be found encrusting everything along the lake’s shoreline including plants, branches and rocks.
While a perfectly safe and natural phenomenon, some people who have seen photographs of the blood-red waters have jumped to an altogether Continue reading “Lake in France turns blood red”
A cemetary in Belfast has become the latest scene of an alleged case of divine intervention.
When an otherwise ordinary looking tree was felled at Belfast City Cemetery in west Belfast, visitors were stunned to discover that an image resembling that of the face of Jesus had appeared in the exposed tree stump.

Nobody is able to explain the strange, bare circular patches that appear in the Nimibian grasslands. Known as ‘fairy circles’, the mysterious circles of bare land seem to appear and then disappear again, often years later, for reasons that nobody is yet able to determine. The circles range in size from 2m across to as much as 12m across with some lasting as long as 75 years. The remote region in which the phenomenon occurs has made it difficult for researchers to investigate.
Biologist Walter Tschinkel has been trying to get to the bottom of the mystery since first encountering the circles while on Safari in 2005. Continue reading “Mystery ‘fairy circles’ stump scientists”
I select these places and photos, I can not think another thought to think “if it were not a photographer I guarantee they are real, believe they are a montage done in Photoshop. A glacier in Chile with colors and tones that seem painted, a lake that look like iceberg or glacier sculpture that looks like a frozen sea, Iceland, Norway icy plains, a giant island in the Arctic ice, or glacier building a natural dam collapses while in Argentina. Are some frozen landscapes scattered throughout the world, mostly to remote and elusive to access, but any of them I think, justify the title of the post.

Pope Benedict XVI says he wants to see the book 1,500 years old, which many say is the Gospel of Barnabas, which has been obscured by the Turkish state during the past 12 years.
14 million pound handmade tome with gold letters, written in Aramaic, Jesus’ mother tongue, is said to contain his early teachings and a prediction of the coming of the Prophet.
The leather-bound text, written on animal skin, was discovered by Turkish police during a smuggling operation in 2000.
He was watched closely until 2010, when it was finally delivered to the Ethnographic Museum in Ankara, and will soon be back on public display after a minor restoration.

Dreams of meeting them, and some of their fears. From mythology we know the wonderful creatures that are similar to women with a woman’s body and fish tail. The body of mermaids pop covers are shiny scales. They have an incredibly beautiful voice, and eternal youth. His voluptuous singing lures sailors they are, and ordinary travelers.

The Dead Sea is so called because of the salinity of its waters, which is incompatible with the life of fish, plants and marine animals. This salt lake is located at the junction of tectonic plates, where there are Asia and Africa. The sea is 400 meters below sea level, and a hot dry day due to evaporation of water levels can fall for another two or three centimeters. Once people have received the first satellite images of the Dead Sea, they noticed that from the height it looks very unusual. If one image combined image of the infrared, red and green spectral region, we get an unusually beautiful sight.
