Too beautiful to be real? 16 surreal landscapes found on Earth

Prabalgad Fort, also known as Kalavantin Durg (Kalavantin’s Fort), is located between Matheran and Panvel in the Indian state of Maharashtra, at an elevation of 2,300 feet in the Western Ghats.

Prabalgad Fort, India

It was built at the pinnacle of a rocky plateau very close to Matheran. Previously, the fort was known as Muranjan until it was taken over and renamed by the Maratha forces under Shivaji's rule. The fort can be approached via a chillingly steep climb. The steps leading up to the fort were cut into the rock of the hill. There are no safety rails on the edge and no ropes on the wall to grab on to. Wheelersburg LSD Home Page. YouTube. Google. 20150309064158. I still got it. TURTLE. White lipped deer.

Art lessons for kids. Baked Brie. Looking for the perfect appetizer? Look no further! And be ready, because this may be the tastiest thing you will ever eat! A wheel of Brie, topped with a sweet caramelized onion jam, baked in a crisp puff pastry until wonderfully soft and gooey! Simple? Baked Brie. Not to be confused with brie en crute (brie cheese in pastry shell), a simple baked brie is both easier and more figure friendly for your next entertaining gig. This appetizer is incredibly easy and comes together in 10 minutes. It's perfect for a dinner party appetizer or for your holiday festivities as your guests can help themselves. A few key points to remember: select a firmer brie wheel (meaning the full round) -- it will stand up to the warming in the oven better and not completely fall apart on you as if you'd use a cut wedge; and this is not a time to invest in creamier fancy triple creme bries -- a simple (and cheaper) brie will do you better this time!

In my mind I see it as an artist creating a jigsaw puzzle in their head without the photo on the box to guide them. One such master is Nancy McCabe, a surface designer from Chicago who runs No Ocean, a design studio that specializes in surface designs and prints. She sells her patterns for commercial uses such as fashion, home/interior, print and web design, as well as a beautiful series of graphic scarves.

(Images: Nick Brandt) ACCORDING to Dante, the Styx is not just a river but a vast, deathly swamp filling the entire fifth circle of hell.

Deadly lake turns animals into statues

Perhaps the staff of New Scientist will see it when our time comes but, until then, Lake Natron in northern Tanzania does a pretty good job of illustrating Dante's vision. Unless you are an alkaline tilapia (Alcolapia alcalica) – an extremophile fish adapted to the harsh conditions – it is not the best place to live. Temperatures in the lake can reach 60 °C, and its alkalinity is between pH 9 and pH 10.5. The lake takes its name from natron, a naturally occurring compound made mainly of sodium carbonate, with a bit of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) thrown in. The Pacific island that never was. For more than a decade it has featured on the world's maps.

The Pacific island that never was

Viewed from Google Earth, Sandy Island appears as a dark, tantalising sliver, set amid the shimmering vastness of the Pacific Ocean. But when marine scientists arrived at the island in the Coral Sea off Australia they were in for something of a shock: it didn't exist. Where there was supposed to be a sandy outcrop complete with palm trees, a few coconuts and maybe a turtle there was merely blue undulating water. The Australian scientists, led by Maria Seaton, a geologist at Sydney University, had embarked on a voyage to study plate tectonics. They spotted that the enigmatic island lay along their route. Wildlife Overpasses Around The World: Working With Nature, Not Against. Rapid deforestation and excessive human intervention into wildlife habitat has lead to frequent straying of wild animals into human habitation.

Wildlife Overpasses Around The World: Working With Nature, Not Against

Intrusion into wildlife habitat typically occurs due to illegal encroachment and also when roads, railroads, canals, electric power lines, and pipelines penetrate and divide wildlife habitat. Wild animals attempting to cross roads often find themselves in front of speeding vehicles. Road mortality has significantly impacted a number of prominent species in the United States and elsewhere, including white-tailed deer, Florida panthers, and black bears. According to a study made in 2005, nearly 1.5 million traffic accidents involving deer occur each year in the United States that cause an estimated $1.1 billion in vehicle damage. 36 Strange and Funny Google Street View Photos.

Sure, Italy is rich with romantic cities like Florence, Venice and Rome — but its most vibrant might just be Milan. And this is the year for tourists to explore its charms, as it hosts the 2015 World Expo. Twenty million visitors are expected to visit the city for the Expo, a mammoth event that runs from May through October and involves more than 130 participating nations and organizations sponsoring more than 60 pavilions.

The Expo’s theme focuses on food, nutrition and sustainability practices — a fitting choice for a city steeped in Italian culinary traditions. Highlights will include the Future Food District, a space to explore technological advances affecting the global food chain, and the Lake Arena, an Expo centerpiece with a mirrorlike pond and fountain fed by water from the city’s canals.

A zoo has landed itself in hot water after trying to pass off fluffy dogs as lions and rats as snakes. A clearly-marked sign claimed an animal in one of the cages was an African lion but visitors became infuriated when it was clear a chow chow dog was inside instead.

Visitor Liu Wen said: ‘I had my young son with me so I tried to play along and told him it was a special kind of lion. ‘But then the dog barked and he knew straight away what it was and that I’d lied to him.’ Elsewhere in the zoo, foxes were used to impersonate leopards and another dog was used to impersonate a wolf. And in their most creative feat a couple of rats, clearly scurrying around in a cage, were labelled snakes. Cheval des Andes Polo Match in Argentina.
