The story behind the photos:

Photo number 10:
Although it looks like a sea monster army is about to feast on some surfer guts, those are in fact just seaweed along Innsmouth Beach in New England.

Photo number 9:
Helicopter landing on iceberg in the Antarctic area near Argentina.

Photo number 8:
On 2010 , the gigantic drilling machine Sissi broke through the last 1.5 metres of rock to complete the Gotthard Base rail tunnel in Switzerland, the world’s longest at 57 kilometres.
Eight 3000 ton drilling machines, each 400 metres long and fitted with 60 drill heads, worked simultaneously for 8 years to complete the pair of parallel tunnels 40 metres apart and 10 metres in diameter, connected every 320 metres by a cross passage. In total, 153.5 kilometres of tunnel was drilled and 24 million tons of rubble removed by a team of 2600 workers.

Scientist Mohamed Babu from Mysore, India captured beautiful photos of these translucent ants eating a specially colored liquid sugar. Some of the ants would even move between the food resulting in new color combinations in their stomachs.

Photo number 5:
In this incredible photograph we see the junction of the Rhone and Arve rivers in Geneva, Switzerland. The river on the left is the Rhone, which is just exiting Lake Lehman. The river on the right is the Arve, which receives water from the many glaciers of the Chamonix valley before flowing north-west into the Rhone on the west side of Geneva, where its much higher level of silt brings forth a striking contrast between the two rivers.

Alpine Ibex goats, like the ones seen here, are native to the Alps and known for their awesome climbing abilities. Although they are usually found in the rocky mountain slopes – clearly, they have no problem navigating man-made structures, too. In fact, this herd of Ibex goats seems right at home on the near-sheer face of Cingino Dam in northern Italy.

Photo number 3:
The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is the largest hot spring in the United States, and the third largest in the world. The vivid colors in the spring are the result of pigmented bacteria in the microbial mats that grow around the edges of the mineral-rich water. The bacteria produce colors ranging from green to red; the amount of color in the microbial mats depends on the ratio of chlorophyll to carotenoids and on the temperature of the water which favors one bacterium over another. The center of the pool is sterile due to extreme heat.

Photo number 2:
A salp is a barrel-shaped, transparent, gelatinous animal that is typically between 1 and 10 centimeters. The salps live most there life as a chain of tens to hundreds of individuals, which are released from the parent at a small size. This string shaped colony can reach a length of few meters. It moves by contracting, thus pumping water through its gelatinous body. The salp strains the pumped water through its internal feeding filters, feeding on plankton.
