If you think this a painting or an artwork by probably one of the best artist in the world than you are wrong. This is a real photograph with no post-production. National Geographic photographer, Fran Lanting was wandering around the Namib-Naukluft Park when he saw this place. The Dead Vlei area is capable of producing many scenes like this one due to the dead trees on a desolate desert landscape who have orange hues in the morning sun.

FlyGeyser (USA)

Yet another beautiful place that looks unreal but is real. This relatively unknown geyser is a rarely beautiful place to see, but is often unseen because it is inside a private property, in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. But this isnt a completely natural phenomenon. The geyser started off as an experiment in 1964 with geothermal testing. Since then the atmosphere has provided the exact micro-climate required for the thermophilic algae to blossom. These algae are what give the geyser its brilliant colors. The water erupted out of the geyser but the bad experiment leaved calcium carbonate deposits around the geyser that form its odd shape.

CanoCristales (Columbia)

This rainbow like place actually does exist. The Cano Cristale is a river located in the Serrania de la Macarena in Columbia’s Meta province. The river goes by various names in local folklore, all describing the brilliant colour display. Among the names "The River of Five Colors" or "The Liquid Rainbow," are most common. Lots of tourists consider it the most beautiful river in the world, and the most surreal experience of their life. The colorful river is completely natural phenomena. You can see yellow, green, blue, black, and the most famous red mixing into each other forming a magnificent toned water. These colours are are caused by the Macarenia clavigera (Podostemaceae) which are found at the bottom of the river.

This is a famous place around the world. The world is familiar with the Dutch tulips and the fields where they grow. This colorful place is a man made miracle. Maybe not so surreal orstrange but its glowing colors ooze warmth and positive energy, and fill the viewer with different emotions. The fields look like a child’s drawing. The perfect lines between the various tulips are also amazing and very precise. Dutch tulips are a great profit as for the owners.

This is an incredible place and the name of this place might just create doubt in your respective minds about the place. This glorious huge fire hole in the ground which is located in the heart of the Karakum Desert. This is nothing else but a crater that was created more than 40 years ago. It would have been just a hole, but the fire doesn’t stop to burn for the past four decades which makes this place unique, scary, magnificent and amazing at the same time.

LakeHillier (Australia)

Ive personally named it a chewing gum lake because of its color. This lake looks like a pink tube if you look on it from above. There are actually several such pink lakes in the area that have puzzled geologists for a long time (Pink Lake and Senegal’s Lake Retba). The cause for the pink colored water has been investigated, but the reason behind Lake Hillier’s color remains a mystery. There is some evidence, that the color is at least partly due to the high salinity combined with the presence of a salt-loving algae species known as Dunaliella salina and pink bacteria known as halobacteria. Lake Hillier maintains its pink shade year-round unlike others colored lakes that change their water color in certain seasons
