Marvel at the Magnificent Marble Caves [35 PICS]
Can you imagine something happening that would endanger these exquisite azure caverns? It might if Chile continues with plans to build five hydro-power dams in Patagonia. Photo #7 by © Jorge Leon Cabello The water has eroded the marble to create cavities and marble caves. Amazing geological formations on Chilean side of Lake Carrera. It would be a real shame if the hydro-power dams damage the lake and the marble caves on top of the surrounding natural habitats for wildlife. View of the lake and where to find the marble caverns in the Aysen region of Chile. Related:  INCREDIBLE PLACES

The world's weirdest places to scuba dive The Silfra fissure in Iceland's Thingvellier National Park is where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. The water is so clear many divers are said to lose all sense of depth and even experience vertigo. The mysterious underwater ruins of Yonaguni, Japan are estimated to be between 5,000 and 8,000 years old. Some claim the ruins to be evidence of a long lost city, while others are convinced it is a geological phenomenon. The submerged active volcano of Banua Wuhu in Indonesia seen releasing ribbons of silver bubbles of sulfur gas. The volcano's barren sulfur-covered rocks give way to coral reefs and an extraordinary display of marine life the deeper down you explore. The Museum of Underwater Modern Art in Cancun, Mexico, holds over 403 permanent life-size sculptures and is one of the largest artificial reef attractions in the world. The Neptune Memorial Reef in Miami, Florida, is an artificial reef which doubles as a cemetery. SP Mainsail diving Silfra fissure Iceland 1

36 Strange and Funny Google Street View Photos We wanted to post these awesome Google Street View photos a long time ago, but somehow they got lost along the way. Luckily, I found them while reading Twisted Sifter. We tried our best to find more cool examples of Google Street View images, however almost every source was pointing to Jon Rafman. Montreal based artist Jon Rafman isn’t the original photographer but instead he explores Google Street Views and takes screenshots of the most unusual and funny sights. The original images were taken by an army of Google’s hybrid electric automobiles, each one equipped with nine cameras on a single pole trying to photograph every highway and byway in the world. “The world captured by Google appears to be more truthful and more transparent because of the weight accorded to external reality, the perception of a neutral, unbiased recording, and even the vastness of the project,” said Jon in his interview to Art Fag City.

Lifestyle We will never tire of the positive effects of nature. Its calming, soothing and inspiring influence will never go out of style. The more we rush, the more time we spend indoors staring at our screens and devices, the more urban our lifestyles become, the more we crave and need time away from it all. It has been amazing to follow the newest solutions to the old dilemmas: How to bring more green space to cities; how to reclaim underused urban land for recreational and other "green" uses; how to provide more and more people the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of spending time in nature. Lately, we have seen fantastic examples of how designers and architects, urban planners and citizens' organizations have accomplished both large and small-scale projects, from bringing a bit of greenery, and open space to otherwise bleak surroundings, to large-scale neighborhood-changing undertakings. Getting back to nature is not a new phenomenon.

To a great extent this is due to the country's rocky littoral, which, washed by the Adriatic, is considered one of the most beautiful of the Mediterranean coastlines. Then there is the rich history and cultural heritage of medieval towns such as Dubrovnik, Split and Sibenik. But the well-deserved popularity also depends on the protected natural areas, which make up some ten per cent of the country's area. Eight areas enjoy national park status – a very high number for a relatively small country.
