51 Amazing Photos You Won’t Believe Are Real

There are groups who think that intellect and actions should be celebrated over beauty. They’re probably right, but people have always been fascinated with beautiful and attractive things. As such, beautiful people are always admired. Here is a list of 15 most beautiful celebrities in the world.

Indoor Cloud

Although water vapors can be produced when a room is cold, you need to have special conditions in order to maintain the phenomenon and give it bigger proportions. This picture is a work by artist Berndnaut Smilde, who experiments with humidity and temperatures in a room to create indoor clouds.

Jewel Corn

This Glass Gem corn is a real type of corn obtained by hybridization of several corn varieties. Though it has existed on American soil for quite some time, it was gradually replaced due to its low rate of productivity.

Namib Desert

On 7 January 2012, Korea’s Kompsat – 2 satellite captured this image over the sandy seas of the Namib Desert. The blue and white area is the dry riverbed of the Tsauchab. Black dots of vegetation are concentrated close to the river’s main route, while salt deposits appear bright red. Even now geologists still don’t know how the dunes are created this way.

Half – Half Cat

Venus, the celebrity in the feline world, has a striking physical appearance – her face is split in two, and each part is colored differently. What’s more, one of her eyes is blue, while the other green. Although many claim this is impossible, it is actually the result of an accumulation of gene variation.

Grid Waves

This photo was taken of the French western coasts, near ile de Re. The natural phenomenon in the photo is called cross sea, which is caused by two wave systems traveling at oblique angles. The pattern is very dangerous for navigation as it creates unique combinations of actions on any ship daring to venture such waters.

Flamingos in the Shape of A Flamingo

Nature never stops to amaze us, and this spectacular moment was captured by Bobby Haas, a professional photographer, in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. And of course, you need some imagination to see it as a flamingo.

Red Nose in Black And White Surroundings

This is a picture of a red hibiscus flower which blossomed after a volcanic eruption in Indonesia. The background is all grayed out because of the thick layer of ash on the vegetation. The flower blossomed after the ash had settled down.

Curvy Roads

This is a picture of a road in Japan after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake. Apparently the lanes were created one at a time, and the earth was compacted in a different way, which created the rift between the lanes.

Shark – ception

This picture was taken when a group of scientists were trying to catch fish they had previously tagged. A dogfish, intrigued by the bait, caught the interest of a fully grown tiger shark and then, according to the scientists, swallowed the dogfish in one huge bite.

A Man With A Hole In His Face

The man in the picture is called Billy Owen. A tumor forced the doctor to remove a part of his face, leaving a cavity where his right eye once was. When Billy removed his dental plate, he was able to pull out his index finger through the mouth and out the remaining cavity.

Feet in Wood

This monk prayed in the same place several times a day for 20 years, leaving this amazing stamp in the wood.

Pink River

This picture is of Lake Retba in Senegal. The pink color is caused by the high concentration of salt in the water (up to 40%) which created a high concentration of “dunaliella salina”, a salt eating bacteria, which turns pink.

Stairways to Hell

While this might look like the entrance to hell, it is actually an art decoration in a Swedish underground station. While it is certainly refreshing going beyond that boring decoration metro stations all over the world put on display, it’s still a little creepy.

Lego City

In the photo is a housing complex in the city of San Buenaventura in Mexico. Similar looking houses offer the advantage of a lower price, as less time was invested in careful design. It also shows a sense of equality and communism in the air of San Buenaventura.

Floating Sea Monster

The picture shows the carcass of a whale which washed up on the shore. The unusual shape and color is caused by putrefaction. Weighing a couple of good tons, the flesh was conserved by the salt in the sea water. This picture shows that even the biggest creatures on this planet meet death sooner or later.

The Machine Apparently Made to Saw the World in Half

What appears to be some normal-sized machine cropped and pasted onto a skyline is actually a gigantic machinized monstrosity designed for excavation by some Germans. Those things that look like saw teeth big enough to cut down the Empire State Building are actually buckets, each of which could pretty much scoop up your whole house.


This giant, terrifying Eddie Murphy head that looks like a badly photoshopped and probably racist 4chan meme, was actually part of an enormous bust they were building to promote the movie, Meet Dave

Giant Table or Tiny Bicyclist?

This humongous table and chair is a ‘real’ sculpture. The 30ft (9m) sculpture was made by Giancarlo Neri,The Naples-born artist. The artist wanted to build a monument to the privacy and loneliness of writing. He used six tons of steel and 1,000lb of wood to create the giant sculpture.

“Do You See Those Letters, Uh, Floating There?”

Yes, if you stand in this spot in the parking garage shown in the photo, the word “DOWN” is just floating there. The sign was designed by an artist who won an award for it, because there are apparently awards for making innovative signage in parking garages.

If You Look Past The Unsettlingly Tiny Speedo, You’ll See a Huge Freaking Airliner

This apparent disaster-waiting-to-happen is on the Island of St. Maarten. The airport has a particularly short runway that ends just 40 feet from beach, leaving large planes just barely enough room to land. So they have to come in low, directly over the beach, making it a prime destination for an afternoon of quiet, relaxing sunbathing.

“We’re Moving. It’s the Crab’s House, Now.”

Holy crap, look at that thing. We were hoping that was just a tiny trash can but, no, it’s a coconut crab, which is the biggest arthropod that lives on land.
We like how they chose the innocuous name “coconut crab” to describe something that can only be killed with a flamethrower. If these things were called “Skull Crabs” or “Under Your Bed Crabs” mankind would have declared war on them long ago.

A Splotch From God’s Paintbrush

This Mark Rothko-looking blotch of color is the Grand Prismatic Spring, which supposedly gets its colors from bacteria that grow around the water.
Since this explanation seems far too simple for something so brilliant, we’ll go ahead and assume it’s really an alien spacecraft landing site being covered up by the government.

If Dogs Played Major League Baseball

This cartoonish muscle-dog is Wendy, a whippet with a genetic disorder causing ridiculous muscular growth.
While Wendy’s condition is sure to have many medical applications to various muscle development disorders, we’re still hoping Disney casts her as the bad guy in Air Bud 4.

“Damn Kids!”

At first sight, this appears to be a home improvement project that accidentally tapped into Stephen Hawkings’ most abstract theories on space and time. But then you notice that the kid who is right next to the portal to another dimension isn’t disintegrating into millions of pieces, or even looking up from his goddamn cellphone.
So it must be a photoshop right? Wrong again. The Inversion House is an art project that answers the pressing question: what would your neighbor’s place look like if it was sucked through a straw in the Looney Tunes universe? The answer is pretty cool, though apparently not nearly as cool as whatever 13 year-olds are texting each other these days.

“Looks Like Another Neighborhood Got Sucked Into the Vortex Yesterday.”

It looks like a city about to get drained out of a giant’s bath tub, but it’s actually a picture of the world’s largest diamond mine outside of Mirny, Russia.
This mine is actually so large that air currents prevent helicopters from flying over it.

This mine is actually so large that air currents prevent helicopters from flying over it. By the way, the title of World’s Second Largest Hole still belongs to your mom.

Maho Beach in Saint Martin

Located on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin, Maho Beach is marked by its pristine white sand and crystal clear turquoise water. You would expect this beach to be a nice and quiet haven to relax and chill, but the main reason why tourists throng here is to get a close encounter with airplanes. With the close proximity to the adjacent Princess Juliana International Airport, airliners fly so closely above the beach that their wheels look like they are close enough to be touched by beach goers.

Atlantic Ocean Road in Norway

Located in the midwest part of the Norwegian coastline, the Atlantic Road, with a length of 8,274 meters (5.1 miles), is one of the famous scenic drives in Norway. It’s a very popular tourist attraction in the country. The road includes 8 bridges with a total length of 891 metres. The construction of the road started on August 1983 and it took six years to be finished. It’s one of the most spectaculars roads in the world.
The road’s roller coaster-feel, curvy bridges and phenomenal views have made it a favorite of road trippers and motorcyclists. The weather here is harsh and highly unpredictable and when in storm it is truly dramatic. In calmer weather you might even spot whales and seals.

Sinkhole in Guatemala

Downpours caused by Tropical Storm Agatha created a giant sinkhole in Guatemala City. The sinkhole, which formed in the northern part of the capital city, swallowed up a space larger than the area of a street intersection. A three-storey building and a house fell into the hole, resulting in 120 dead and at least 53 missing.

Blue Salt Fields in Australia

When flying cross-country, you can see a number of spectacular sights. Fly over Arizona and you’ll see the Grand Canyon. Make it to northern Italy and you’ll see the towering Alps. In Western Australia, you may get to see these beautiful salt fields that look like paintings. Aussie photographer Simon Butterworth shows us that the outback is just as colorful as any place on Earth. Still can’t believe this place is real? Check out the salt works on Google Maps and see it for yourself.

Mothership Thunderstorm

This stunning shot of a mothership supercell was taken by Marko Korošec in eastern Colorado on May 28, 2013. The picture won first place in the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Magazine Photo Contest. Technically known as low precipitation supercells, these storms are known to storm chasers as “motherships.” These storms have a persistent, rotating updraft and they can spawn tornadoes and drop large hail as well as rain. Their hallmark, though, is their otherworldly appearance.

Half Head Man

Carlos ‘Halfy’ Rodriguez, who also goes by the name Sosa, lost a large portion of his brain and skull in a crash after flying through his car’s windscreen and landing head-first on the road. Doctors were forced to cut away large amounts of flesh and bone to help him survive and he has since been able to continue his life in Miami, Florida.

Iceberg of Newfoundland

Reddit user carriehunt shared this incredible photo of an unusual iceberg spotted off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, during a kayaking trip. Newfoundland and Labrador is the most easterly province of Canada, situated in the country’s Atlantic region. The coastlines here are often visited by whales, rare birds and icebergs.
The varying colours and folds in the ice are caused by snow freezing at different points in time, resulting in the amazing folds and layers.

Up Above the Clouds

If you’re very lucky, here’s the view you may get to see from the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai. This cloudy phenomenon occurs twice a year in the early morning, engulfing Dubai’s iconic skyline in a huge fog, with the skyscrapers piercing through. It happens when the weather changes from cold to hot, and from hot to cold. By 9am, the fog would have cleared up, so avid photographers and sightseers must get up really early in the day to catch a glimpse of this heavenly spectacle.


Part of the new “skywalking” trend sweeping across Russia, groups of young people are defying death and illegally scaling tall buildings around the world in a bid to take the most incredible, heart-pounding, vertigo-inducing, one-of-a-kind shots of cities from vantages rarely seen.

Rainbow Mountains

These colourful rock formations can be found at the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in Gansu Province, China. The unusual colours of the rocks are the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits being pressed together over 24 million years and buckled up by tectonic plates.

Hardanger Bridge in Norway

This photo shows part of the Hardanger Bridge in Norway. Construction workers can be seen walking along the walkway on the suspension cables at the top of the bridge, lending the illusion that this narrow walkway is the actual bridge. The main span of the Hardanger Bridge is 1,310 meters (4,297.9 ft) – 20 meters longer than the Golden Gate Bridge. This makes the bridge the longest in Norway and 9th longest in the world.

Goats in trees

In Morocco, goats often climb Argan trees in search of food.

Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan

This photo of Hitachi Seaside Park was taken in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Hiroki Kondo as a submission to the 2015 National Geographic Photo Contest. The sea of blue flowers, known as baby blue eyes, bloom once annually around April. The sprawling 470 acre park attracts many tourists for its 4.5 million baby blue eyes. Other flowers include millions of daffodils and 170 varieties of tulips.

Camel Thorn Trees, Namibia

Photograph or painting? This otherworldly image is a very real photo that was taken in the Namibian desert at twilight. While on assignment in Namibia for National Geographic magazine, Frans Lanting captured this surreal landscape image in a location called Dead Vlei. Due to the intensity of the sunlight falling only on the dune in the distance, while the foreground is still in early morning shadow, the trees are almost in silhouette and the photograph appears like a painting.
The orange background is a sand dune, called Big Daddy, that is almost 1,200 feet tall, creating a mysterious backdrop. The lighter spots on it are patches of white grass. The foreground is bluish and dark as a result of being in the shade.

Longest steer horns in the world

You’re looking at the largest horn circumference on a steer. With 37.5 inches across, this African Watusi steer will literally ‘spear’ you with its head. Steer clear of this guy if you want to remain not impaled.

Replica frying pan in Australia

For a few weeks every spring, a 2 mile portion of walk between Sydney’s Bondi Beach and Tamarama Beach is transformed into a sculpture park. Among the 2014 items on the sand? An enormous frying pan. It gets warm in Australia but not hot enough to fry eggs.

Spiders in Pakistan covering trees

During the tragic 2010 flooding of Pakistan, the waters reached unprecedented levels. Within a week’s time, 10 years worth of rainfall had landed. Obviously people were greatly affected by the storm, but creatures had to accommodate as well. These spiders sought refuge in higher elevated areas. Translation? Trees.

World’s fluffiest bunny

Check out this Angora rabbit! I promise you, his face is there somewhere. These bunnies are bred for their fluffy wool, and by the looks of it, there’s a lot.

Indonesia’s Kawah Ijen Volcano

Paris photographer Olivier Grunewald spent several years capturing these neon blue flames. The blue tinted glow results from the combustion of sulfuric gases. Temperatures can reach up to 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ocean opal

Found mainly in Australia, opals are a miniature window into the ocean floor. They are a hydrated amorphous form of silica. This is cheaper entertainment than owning a TV set.

Optical illusion

Needless to say, he’s holding on for dear life.

Rubber duck in Hong Kong harbour

This 54 feet ‘Rubber Duck’ is the creation of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. It showed up in Hong Kong unbeknownst to the general public. They promptly rushed to their office windows and took in the spectacle. No productivity occurred that day.

The Doritos-like mountain

Sometimes the sun strikes nature in just the right way. This time around, it creates a Dorito. This is also known as… beauty.

Hanging off buildings

Pavlo Ushivets, known as Mustang Wanted, is a controversial Ukrainian building climber. Yes, buildings. He films himself and others hanging from the top of some of the planet’s tallest urban structures. To make things interesting, he doesn’t use any safety equipment or harnesses. I call this Tuesday.

The Bolivia Salt Flats

In the middle of southwest Bolivia sits a massive, 4,000 square mile patch of salt flats. In the summer, it’s a prime source of lithium and salt, but during the flooding season, it transforms into something really incredible: the world’s largest mirror.

Cumulonimbus, Nelson, BC

From Matador managing editor Carlo Alcos, friend of the photog: “Taken July 11, 2012 in Nelson. Heavy rain and thunderstorms this summer have caused rivers and lakes to rise to levels not seen in several decades. Numerous evacuation alerts have been issued and a landslide in nearby Johnsons Landing wiped out homes and the only road access to the community. Four people have been missing since, two of them recovered from the debris. Another man died on June 23 in the Slocan Valley when he was swept away by flood waters from a bridge he was standing on.”

The Graffiti That Will Devour You

You pull your car into a parking lot. You circle several times without luck, but right as you’re about to give up and pay that shifty dude in the lawn chair two streets over to park in his lot, you spot a single space near the corner. As you approach, a strange shape begins to materialize from the wall. “How odd,” you think, before all thought ceases because a giant alligator riding atop a floating, chromed-out graffiti tag just gnawed your brain into jelly.

The Thing Cannot Be Described — There Is No Language For Such Abysms Of Shrieking And Immemorial Lunacy

Never has a scene more perfectly captured the birth of an eldritch apocalypse than this. If someone dug up H. P. Lovecraft, popped his skull open, and re-hydrated and spread his shriveled brains onto canvas, the resulting artwork would be this, and the signature in the corner would be a horribly offensive racial epithet.

Photo From Hell

It’s actually a wave photographed from the Canadian side of Lake Erie as the weather turned toward winter, because professional sports photographer Dave Sandford apparently decided that working in sports stadiums overflowing with tens of thousands of rabid fans didn’t come with quite enough chance of bodily harm. Even though there are no actual monster gods rising from the lake (that we know of), the prospect of swimming in freezing-ass Lake Erie in December is entirely horrifying in and of itself.

Man, Chlorine Really Works Wonders

So your backyard is a literal cesspit. That doesn’t mean you can’t have nice things! Look at this lovely oasis amidst an endless sea of shit. Of course, if the harsh cleaning chemicals we use are capable of doing that, it’s a wonder every public pool doesn’t transform into the pool scene from Poltergeist.

Party at the pool

The image above is an aerial view of the extensive flooding that took place across Central Europe in 2013. The walls of this one lucky swimming pool were just high enough to keep the rising waters out. The resulting dichotomy is so perfect that it looks as if you could still lounge in one of those cabana chairs and enjoy the view, if only said view weren’t the aftermath of a vengeful god’s wrath. On a similar note …

Architecture Inspired By Jenga

Building codes take the place of toilet paper in the restrooms at the Dr. Seuss Museum and Gift Shop.

God’s Sandal Shows Its Support For Gay Marriage

This photograph of what appears to be an outtake from the intro to Monty Python’s Flying Circus was taken in Australia, mere seconds after God’s great be-sandaled foot crashed through the clouds to crush the koalas clear out of existence, because seriously, fuck those things. The pretty rainbow is his assurance to us that humanity’s flesh is now forever safe from their knife-like teeth and ever-flicking, probably forked tongues.
