Drone discovers Remarkable Glacier Hidden in the Himalayas, that nobody will photograph it again.

Polish photographer “David Kaszlikowski” is highly thankful to the help of a drone, when he captured a incredible scene atop a glacier near the K2 mountain, one that he wouldn’t have ever discovered otherwise. The expedition to discover an exclusive Himalayan locale started while he was shooting the upcoming documentary called “K2 Touching the Sky”. He looked-for a personal project to work on during his downtime, and so he decided to sent his “DJI Phantom drone” to look in the majestic scenery surrounding the world’s second-highest peak. Moreover, the device found a secluded spot near Concordia, which is the area below K2 where the “Baltoro” and “Godwin-Austen” glaciers converge.

He also carefully noticed that there was a section of glacier surrounded by a 65-foot-wide pool of water. Indeed, the place was very exclusive, making a very clean graphic frame, ad it was disappearing, melting, and changing its form every day. However, it was quite obvious nobody will shoot it again like me; nobody will see it the same way the next season. Well, to catch the breathtaking sight, he and his guide hiked to this special place at night, where he used a 30-second exposure shot with a Canon 5D Mark III. 
Although the shutter was open, he lightened the environment with an LED. The ultimate result is a surreal, eerily-glowing form that looks as though it’s from another planet. The unexpected location is one that he would’ve missed on his own. And as a veteran in the industry, he’s thought, like drones, can support photographers get the finest shot possible. The talented Photographer says he maybe would have missed the shot ten years ago, as he wouldn’t have had the drone that spotted the location in the first place, as the technology improves exponentially. These days with digital and access to various advanced tools, it’s much easier to get exceptional results. But one thing never changes; you have to follow your vision. Source: My Modernmet

Very scenic and feast to the eyes. Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park. Canada

Very scenic and feast to the eyes. Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park Canada. It is a visual feast. Something which is unimaginable. No photograph or video can capture its beauty . One has to see with their own eyes. The boat ride gives an opportunity to see the beauty of the lake with surrounding mountains from different angles. It is one place to visit in ones life time and a boat ride which one has to take and experience. The water of Maligne Lake is a beautiful shade of green, almost tropical in color. The mountain views are amazing for sure!!! Spirit Island is actually a small peninsula surrounded by the green waters of the lake and the Rockie Mountains. There are plenty of places to stop where you can see wildlife in abundance and take stunning photos. You get to leave the boat briefly at Spirit Island where you can take a short walk before returning to the boat. It is also an area where you can hire canoes and kayaks or just walk.

Felis Lynx

The lynx is a member of the cat family and one of the bigger felines of North America. Lynx are best known for their short stubby tails and the long tufts of black hair on the ears of a lynx. There are three different types of lynx with these being the North America lynx found in Canada and Alaska, the European lynx found in Spain and Portugal and the Asian lynx which is found in Turkestan and central Asia. The North American lynx is the biggest species of lynx and some of these lynx individuals have extremely thick and fluffy looking fur which keeps the lynx warm in the freezing Canadian winter. The European and Asian lynx species are much smaller in size and have personalities that resemble those of a domestic cat, rather than a large feline.

The lynx tends to inhabit dense shrub and grasslands in the forests of North America and parts of Eurasia. The lynx hunt small mammals, birds and fish, and the lynx are prey to few predators. Although the lynx is a ground mammal, lynx are often known to climb trees or swim in order to catch their prey. Lynx hunt small mammals, birds and fish but prefer to hunt larger mammals like reindeer, deer and elk if the lynx can find and catch them. The lynx has large paws which help the lynx to balance and also give the lynx more power when pursuing potential meals. The lynx also has extremely acute hearing which allows the lynx to hear oncoming prey and predators over long distances, and the lynx also has a strong jaw and sharp teeth which the lynx uses to bite down on its prey.

Lynx are usually solitary animals and will spend their time both hunting and resting alone, however a small group of lynx may travel and hunt together occasionally. Lynx mating takes place in the late winter and the female lynx will give birth to two to six kittens after a gestation period of about 70 days. Female lynx will usually give birth to a litter a year. The young lynx kittens stay with the mother lynx for around nine months meaning that the lynx kittens will have the mother lynx to watch over them during their first winter. The lynx kittens then move out to live on their own as young adults. It is known that adult lynx will give their young the prey to play with it before they eat it as this thought to develop their hunting skills. Lynx live in dens in rock crevices or under ledges which gives the lynx a safe place to rest as well as a home for when the lynx kittens arrive and need safely looking after. Lynx do not normally take their kill back to their den, the main exception to this is when the mother lynx is providing for her lynx kittens. Lynx children love to wrestle with each other.

The Cascadas de Agua Azul (Spanish for "Blue-water Falls")

The Cascadas de Agua Azul (Spanish for "Blue-water Falls") are found in the Mexican state of Chiapas. They are located in the Municipality of Tumbalá, 69 kilometers from Palenque by the road that leads towards San Cristóbal de las Casas. This waterfall consists of many cataracts following one after another as can be seen in the first photo in the picture gallery, taken from near the top of the sequence of cascades. The larger cataracts may be as high as 6 meters (20 feet) or so. The one pictured to the right is next to the bottom of the sequence.

Waterfalls Lakes Plitvice, Croatia (National Park)

Waterfalls  Lakes Plitvice, Croatia (National Park) is among the 20 most beautiful lakes in the world to 17th place. The park covers an area of 33,000 hectares and includes 16 lakes in succession, connected by waterfalls.Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europa.All'interno the park there are also many caves of which only a small part is agibile.I lakes are formed by two rivers: the White River and the Black River, which flow in the river Korana. The waters of these rivers are rich in calcareous salts (mostly calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate), from the dissolution of carbonate rocks forming the geological structure of sito.Questi salts are precipitated by vegetation, forming layers of travertine , a sedimentary rock recently. Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to water, growing by about a centimeter per year. At one point the water pressure breaks these natural levees, opening new paths in the ground. This mechanism, in fact common to all the calcareous water, in Plitvice has assumed a particular importance.The beauty of the National Park Plitvice, Croatia, is increased in the second round of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.
