A Giant Fingerprint Island of Croatia

Croatia has 79 large islands, over 500 smaller islets and another 642 small rocky peaks and covering an area of about 3,300 square kilometers. Of these small islands is Baljenac or sound like Bavljenac, situated in front of the Dalmatian coast, to the south of country, and that forms part of Šibenik archipelago. It hardly has 0.14 square kilometers of surface and a length of coast of 1,431 meters. It is uninhabited, but recently Croatia requested its inclusion in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The stone walls of Baljenac island is an example of this story and tells us that, in the 16th and 17th centuries, during the Ottoman conquest, the island served as a refuge for the Christians who began to build, stone by stone, a network of walls to protect themselves although it would not be until the 19th century and thanks to the Agriculture, when it reached its current appearance that resembles a human fingerprint.

Yehliu Geopark, Taiwan

Yehliu Geopark in Wanli, Taiwan,  is truly unique because the rock layers near the seashore contain substantial quantities of limestone, which are subject to sea erosion, weathering and earth movements, thus making the 1,700 meter-long peninsula almost lunar-like in many ways. The wild-looking landscape leaves little to the imagination. It’s easy to imagine what life could be like on another planet. The area is studded with seawater-eroded holes teeming with sea-life, as well as unusual rock formations, which make the surrounding environment rich in ecological resources. Sun, wind, rain, waves and strong northeastern typhoons all make a major impact on this narrow strip of land.

Eternal Flame Falls

A mysterious flame sitting behind a small waterfall located in the Shale Creek Preserve in Western New York, USA. A small alcove at the waterfall's base emits natural gas, which can be lit to produce a small flame, although it can be extinguished and must occasionally be re-lit. It is one of a few hundred "natural" eternal flames around the world, fed by gas seeping to the Earth's surface from underground, said Arndt Schimmelmann, a researcher at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind.
