Nature can be gentle, gracious and tender, but there are times when nature decides to show us its other face which is..not so gentle, but rather furious and rough. These photos magnificently display this face of mother nature, which is a face of dangerous beauty. Enjoy these photos with storms, hurricanes and other fantastic displays of mother nature’s wrath and beauty.
Looking at these photos can make you ask yourself how did they get there? It’s really unbelievable. These animals got stuck at unexpected places. But by whom? Maybe just by themselves? Is answer so easy and at the same time so strange? Anyway, these animals are really so crazy and funny to look at.
Looking at nature from different perspectives can create stunning compositions for your photographs. This couldn’t be more true than when we look at our planet from outer space and appreciate the reality of its beauty from such an incredible and rarely seen perspective.

Delta Region, Netherlands – Along the southern coast of the Netherlands, sediment-laden rivers have created a massive delta of islands and waterways in the gaps between coastal dunes. After unusually severe spring tides devastated this region in 1953, the Dutch built an elaborate system of dikes, canals, dams, bridges, and locks to hold back the North sea.
Akpatok Island - Akpatok Island lies in Ungava Bay in northern Quebec, Canada. Accessible only by air, Akpatok Island rises out of the water as sheer cliffs that soar 500 to 800 feet (150 to 243 m) above the sea surface. The island is an important sanctuary for cliff-nesting seabirds. Numerous ice floes around the island attract walrus and whales, making Akpatok a traditional hunting ground for native Inuit people.
Earlier this year Wadhwa Developers commissioned James Law Cybertecture to create an office unlike any other in Mumbai, India. Cybertecture Egg, an egg-shaped office building brings together iconic architecture, environmental design, intelligent systems, and new engineering to create a fascinating structure in the city.
The concept of this unique design was inspired by planets and sustainable ecosystems. Elements of the design and intelligence systems will work together to give this office building’s occupants a great place to work.
Throughout the building, a series of innovative systems will be implemented. One such system, “Cybertecture Health“, is designed to monitor office worker’s health. Data collected may be retrieved or sent to a doctor if necessary.
The American artist Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-78), who trained as an architect, used the urban environment and more specifically buildings as material. He arranged empty premises by, among other things, cutting out fragments. With his interventions he transformed architecture into sculpture, he exposed the soul of a building: to convert a place into a state of mind.
It’s so amazing what you can do when you find a dark space, slow your shutter, crank your imagination in high gear and start playing with light.

Lightning is a very destructive force but the impossibly beautiful patterns which emerge when lightning strikes are some of the most beautiful phenomenons nature has to offer.

A lot of patience and a nice thunderstorm are the basic ingredients, that’s for sure.
