Dubai’s Love Lake: Two Hearts in the Middle of the Desert


fazza_fanzs

Love Lake, a heart-shaped, man-made lake located in the desert near Dubai, is probably one of the most impressive attractions for romantic couples visiting the Middle-East.

From its iconic palm-shaped island, to skyscrapers like the Burj Khalifa, Dubai has no shortage of world-renowned attractions, but there is a lot more to discover in the desert around the most populated city in the UAE. One such hidden gems is the man-made Love Lake, technically two intertwined heart-shaped lakes situated near the Al Qudra Oasis. Measuring a whopping 550,000 square meters, this stunning tourist attraction is even visible from space.

Located at a considerable distance away from any urban areas, Love Lake is a true oasis, surrounded by desert as far as the eye can see. One can only imagine the time and effort and money that went into making this place a reality, especially considering that apart from the heart-shaped lake itself, it consists of hundreds of thousands of shrub varieties, over 16,000 trees, and thousands of colorful flowers, including red begonia, either arranged in heart shapes, or to spell out the word “Love”.

Unveiled on November of 2018, Dubai’s Love Lake started attracting attention after Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai, shared an aerial photo of it on his popular Instagram account, with the caption “To all of you”.

Baikal Zen: Rare Phenomenon Makes Rocks Look Like They Are Floating Above Water


savva_25

Lake Baikal in Siberia is the deepest freshwater lake in the world, and its particular relationship to the land that surrounds it produces fascinating natural phenomenon—frozen waves of ice, ice caves dripping with long fingers of icicles, frozen methane bubbles, and something called “Baikal Zen,” which is the balancing of rocks on thin pedestals of ice.

It happens from wind whipping across the lake and around the rocks, carving the pedestals with a slow and persistent determination. May we all balance as effortlessly this year.

Photographer Derry Moroney Captures Breathtaking Aerial “Tree Of Life” Photos Of A Receding Lake

Derry Moroney is an Australian photographer who recently captured photos of a unique “Tree of Life” phenomenon that appeared on the receding Lake Cakora in Brooms Head, New South Wales, and the photos will take your breath away.

More: Instagram h/t: demilked

The photographer explained that the phenomenon appeared after a big amount of rain and stormy weather broke the lake out and drained most of its water. At the same time, a nearby lake rich in tea tree oil and coffee rock ran off into Lake Cakora, creating this beautiful image of a tree.

In an interview with DeMilked, Derry said he got into photography three years ago, and has been very passionate ever since. The photographer says he gets inspiration from nature and the way it can create amazing masterpieces from from the elements.

“I love being able to find the spots from above where most people don’t get to see and I also love being able to share my way of seeing the world with the world,” explained Derry.

To capture the photos, Derry says he used a DJI Mavic Air 2 drone. Derry says that the spot has a very dystopian feel and he’s amazed how it still manages to feel different each time even after 6 months of photographing it.

This Underwater Observatory in Lake Zug in Switzerland Looks Like a Real Life ‘Truman Show’ Door

On the shore of Switzerland’s Lake Zug lies a door.. that takes you down a flight of stairs.. to an underwater observatory where you (apparently) can’t see much. More: Imgur, Reddit h/t: twistedsifter However, if you look at the doorway straight on, it’s eerily reminiscent of the ‘door to the real world’ from the film, The Truman Show, starring Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank.

A Turquoise Lake In Siberia Where People Have Been Taking Selfies Is Actually A Toxic Power Plant’s Ash Dump

nohopezzz The lake, nicknamed the “Novosibirsk Maldives” because of how tropical it looks, has provided the perfect backdrop to people’s Instagram posts. But the reason for its colour is less appealing – calcium salts and other metal oxides from the plant. Responding to the selfies, the Russian power company that runs the plant urged people not to go near the water.
