1. “It looks like an abstract painting. My first thought was a huge archaeological site. It turned out to be wrong. These pits are used in a very old-fashioned salt mining technique. "
2. “This is a private island off the coast of Maine. The bridge has a gate and the house overlooks the shipping lane in Penobscot Bay. I would watch the boats all day, drink wine and tell the whole world to wait. "
3. “Fort in Lille, France. I love finding forts while exploring. Star forts are easy to spot. I especially enjoy finding forts in the city center. "
4. “Here's the perfect meteorite crater. It has a very nice raised edge. "
5. “A very winding river. This is a good illustration of how wavy lakes are formed. In the middle of the image, you can see where the winding loop is actively breaking. "
6. “I couldn't find anything about this strange place. This is a huge planned settlement near Namibe, Angola. It seems to have been built around 2013-2014. It also seems uninhabited due to the lack of vehicles. "
7. “A real living oasis. Not all of these roads are made by cars. The smaller ones must be made agnostic. "
8. “This is Assamacca, Niger, a community that seems to be fighting a hopeless battle with the sands. The prevailing wind direction can be seen. "
9. "The river cuts a hole in the ice."
10. "A lake somewhere on the Tibetan plateau in summer and winter."
11. “This is a kind of reservoir in Belgium. I've never seen an octagonal pond before. I wonder why they did that. "
12. “A volcano erupting out of the South Pacific. I'm not sure if this volcano is growing or collapsing. It looks like rich people on yachts are having a good time. "
13. “When looking for a lava flow in New Mexico, there were several maps showing some nuclear test sites nearby. It must have something to do with this. I'm pretty sure this is the first kind of nuclear detonation. "
14. “Several huge gates that protect Rotterdam from the waters of the North Sea. What an amazing engineering move. "
15. "Shadow of the Mountain".
16. “The Zambezi River downstream of the waterfall. This is a very unusual path for any river. "
17. "I think this is a coal-fired power plant in Egypt."
18. “More ships near Tombua, Angola. They could have been deliberately abandoned. They weren't here in the 2003 photos either. "
