Most Amazing Pictures - Multnomah Falls, Oregon

Most Amazing Pictures - Multnomah Falls, Oregon

Most Amazing Places to GO around the globe  

Multnomah Falls is easily the Columbia River Gorge’s most famous waterfall and could very well be Oregon’s prime waterfall attraction. Sure it’s always busy here as it’s visited by nearly 2 million people a year, but once you stand before this towering 620ft two-tiered column of water, you’ll come to see why it’s so popular.

It towers over the adjacent viewing deck and historic lodge (built in 1925). Its cumulative height of 620ft is comprised of 541ft for the upper falls and 79ft for the lower falls. With these dimensions, people often quote that is the tallest major waterfall in Oregon (wonder what the tallest is?), the 2nd tallest year-round waterfall in the US, and the 4th tallest year-round waterfall in North America. We’ll leave it up to debate whether these claims are accurate because we’re also skeptical. But what makes this waterfall so iconic is the Benson Bridge – a concrete arched bridge spanning the top of the lower waterfall.

Most Amazing Places to GO around the globe

Arguably the best-known natural attraction on Tasmania’s spectacular eastcoast, Wineglass Bay is just a short walk from the camping grounds at Coles Bay. Situated on the north side of the 10,000 ha Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay is roughly 200km north of Hobart and offers all types of holiday accommodation, from the luxury of the world famous Freycinet Lodge to cosy cottages, caravan parks and hotels. The walk to Wineglass Bay is commonly done in two stages: an ascent through The Hazards to a rocky lookout over the bay followed by a descent from The Hazards to the beach.

The walk commences from the carpark of the National Park, and is a 1.3 km ascent up a loose gravel track. While not a long walk, the track is steep at times, and winds it way to a rocky lookout, perched between the twin peaks of The Hazards – Mt Anos and Mt Mayson. The dynamic curve of the bay is amplified by the vantage of the lookout, and it’s a wonderful spot to enjoy a silent moment. Return time is about 1-1.5 hours. From the lookout, the Wineglass Bay Track descends slowly to the sparkling blue waters and white sands of the beach. A walk to the south end of the beach takes about 20-30 minutes, and is rewarded by a striking view across Wineglass Bay to The Hazards. Return to the carpark via the lookout, total time is about 2-3 hours.


Most Amazing Pictures - Verdon, Provence, France

Most Amazing Pictures - Verdon, Provence, France

Most Amazing Places to GO around the globe

Over millions of years the Verdon river has carved a canyon into the countryside in the Haute Provence region of southern France. With an overall length of some 40km and a depth of some 700m at its deepest point, theVerdon Canyon may not compete with the Grand Canyon, Arizona, but it is still the largest canyon in Europe.

There are actually two canyons, one called Les Hautes (upper canyon) and Les Basses (lower canyon), which are separated by the Sainte Croix lake. The Verdon originates in the Alps, enters the upper canyon at Point Sublime, runs south and after meeting with the Artuby canyon, turns to the west. After passing the Sainte Croix lake and the lower canyon, the river discharges into the Durance.

Tourists by the hundreds of thousands visit here every year. To reach the lake, there’s a 14 km winding mountain road from the village of Lake Louise. It’s best to photograph it in the early morning since the mountains face east. The road is open from about late April to October.

Most Amazing Pictures - Sky Lantern Festival - Taiwan.

Most Amazing Places to GO around the globe

Every Chinese New Year (mid-January to mid-February depending on the lunar calendar), thousands of revelers descend upon Pingxi, a small township nestled among the mountains in northeastern Taipei County, an hour’s drive from Taipei. During the celebration, between 100,000-200,000 lanterns are launched.

Lantern launching began in the region when the Han settled there. There was much crime in the area so lanterns were released to let others know they were safe. It eventually evolved into a large-scale lantern festival when the area’s coal mines closed in the late twentieth century and the villagers needed a new source of income.

During the Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival, stalls selling paper lanterns, miniature toy lanterns, food and fireworks line the streets. At night, hundreds of lanterns are simultaneously launched from a school field and visitors can buy their own lanterns. Before launching the lanterns, which cost NT$100-NT$200 (US$3.25-US$6.50), people can pick the lantern color and write their wisheson the lantern. Sparklers are an option add-on. It is believed the wishes are sent to heaven and bring luck in the New Year.

Most Amazing Pictures - Riomaggiore, Italy

Most Amazing Pictures - Riomaggiore, Italy

Most Amazing Places to GO around the globe

Riomaggiore, Italy is part of the area known as Cinque Terre. The area is part of the rustic Italian Riviera and is comprised of five cities: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso. The history of Riomaggiore and the Cinque Terre area sounds as if it could have been ripped from a movie script. The area along the coast was dangerous and uninhabitable until around 1000 A.D. due to the large population of pirates, marauders and slave traders prone to frequenting the area. After the establishment of several Italian cities nearby it became safe for the area to be populated and, thus, was born the five towns of Cinque Terre.

Today, Riomaggiore is a quaint tourist stop somewhat off the beaten path of busy and popular Italian tourist destinations. The town is known for its vibrant, colorful buildings as well as the Sciacchetrà wine that is unique to this coastal area. Travelers visiting Riomaggiore and the rest of the Cinque Terre will find that taking in the amazing scenery of the natural surroundings as well as the rustic beauty and charisma of the architecture can take up a great deal of time. The breathtaking ocean and cliff views are magnificent both from land and sea. To view the town from the water, simply seek out one of the many boat and water sports rental services available throughout the city. When enjoying the view from dry land, don’t miss the area’s terraced fields, a unique, man-made addition to the local landscape. Riomaggiore is home to the castle of Riomaggiore which was built in 1260 and, today, is a must see tourist delight. There are several churches in town which are also architectural wonders from the past and should not be missed.

The main street in Riomaggiore is a great area to visit with quaint shops, restaurants and other travel destinations. Riomaggiore is also home to a diving center, perfect for seeing the amazing ocean views from a completely unique perspective. To get a true sense of the local culture and lifestyle, explore the streets that stray away from the main tourist area and discover the shops, cafes and restaurants frequented by locals. When staying in Riomaggiore, guests can choose from a wide variety of apartments, hotels, bed and breakfasts and hostels for accommodation. Staying in town will give travelers the ability to experience some of the local night life in one of the many bars, restaurants and special wine bars.

Exploring Riomaggiore and the rest of the Cinque Terre is a great way to experience rustic, small town Italy. Riomaggiore is a great destination for travelers who want to avoid large crowded areas and really experience Italy like an Italian. The amazing scenery and vibrant culture of Riomaggiore give the town a life of its own. Tour the Cinque Terre, take in the breathtaking scenery and share a bottle of Sciacchetrà with friends in Riomaggiore.

Pulpit Rock or Preikestolen, Prekestolen in Norway, is one of the worlds most profound tourist attractions. This natural rock formation with a 25 meter squared plateau stands 604 meters above the sea. Thousands of tourists visit the Rock every year. The trip takes about two hours by foot, but the rock formation can also be enjoyed from the sea by boat. The original name of the rock formation  is “Hyvlatonnå” – which means the tooth of a woodplane. Todays name could have its origin in the shape or possibly be due to that it might have been a place of sacrifice.

They put all kinds of strange things in their mouths, including saucers, coffee cups, bottles, but none could beat Chiquinho’s coke can stunt.

Amazing Facts - Anti Rape Condom The Rape-Axe

Amazing Facts - Anti Rape Condom The Rape-Axe

The device, known as The Rape-Axe, is a latex sheath embedded with shafts of sharp, inward-facing microscopic barbs that would be worn by a woman in her vagina like a tampon. If an attacker were to attempt vaginal rape, their penis would enter the latex sheath and be snagged by the barbs, causing the attacker pain during withdrawal and (ideally) giving the victim time to escape. The condom would remain attached to the attacker’s body when he withdrew and could only be removed surgically, which would alert hospital staff and police. This device could assist in the identification and prosecution of rapists.

Julian Beever is an English artist who’s famous for his amazing 3d chalk drawing art on the pavements of England, France, Germany, USA, Australia and Belgium. Beever gives to his 3d chalk drawings an anamorphous look. His amazing 3D chalk drawings are drawn completely deformed which give a 3D image when viewed at the right angle. See for yourself.. it’s amazing!

Last few amazing 3D Chalk drawings big in lengths in the slideshow above is the work of an another artist namely Edgar Mueller.

THE MOST AMAZING 3D CHALK DRAWING THAT WON GUINNESS

Qi Xinghua is a Chinese 3D Chalk drawing artist (first in his country) whose painting entitled Lions Gate Gorge earned him an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the largest amazing 3D Chalk drawing in the world! I’m not exactly sure how fresh this information is, as I could swear we’ve seen bigger. Still, with 23 meters in width, 32 meters in length and over 6 meters in height of this amazing 3D chalk drawing, we can’t ignore hard work Qi invested into this masterpiece. This 3D drawing was presented at the Baiyan Wanda Plazashopping-mall in Guangzhou (China), and it took Qi more than a month to finish the project. Oh, and one more interesting fact: apparently some people reported dizziness, during their “rope balancing”.

Qi Xinghua says he has calculated three different formulas that can be applied on all paintings of varying sizes. He also added (quoted below):

Most Amazing 3D Chalk Drawings

Most Amazing 3D Chalk Drawings

“To put it in the simplest way, it’s reversed vision, which is also called inverse-perspective. From our normal vision, nearby objects are big and far away ones are small. I use the opposite method to make far away objects big and close objects small. In this way, a two-dimensional painting turns three-dimensional.”
