These Wildly Beautiful Photos Will Have You Thinking It's Photoshop.
How Did They Do That?

This image shows how perfectly clear the waters of Fiji are. The azure boat actually looks like it's hovering over the water like a spacecraft. The shadow of the boat under the water's surface reminds us of the reality of the situation, but we still can't help but daydream while looking at the picture. It's amazing when water looks extraordinarily clear, or magically reflective, but it can take on some other pretty breathtaking forms, as well.
View Of Reservoir Ponds Looks Like Paint

Water truly is a magical substance. Think about it, two bodies of water, only separated by a small strip of land, can look two completely different ways. This image, taken near San Francisco, shows three reservoir ponds with entirely different colors. Because of the difference in soil chemistry and water sources, the waters have contrasting amounts of elements and nutrients, and they each reflect a different spectrum of color. The same impressive red color can be found on the opposite side of the world, too!
Red Can Be Found In A Place Down Under

Lake Hillier, located in Australia, also shows us how nature can create such vibrant colors. The soil is rich in iron and when it reacts with the salt in the lake, it creates this vibrant red color! Strange as it may seem, Lake Hillier is next to the beautiful blue ocean off the south of Australia. In other photographs, the red lake pops against the blue of the ocean. A little bit away is water that looks so blue, it looks otherworldly.
A Palace For The Coolest Of Animals
Ever want to see what a day in the life of a penguin looks like? Well, here you go. These penguins are gathering on an iceberg in the South Sandwich Islands, Antarctica. They're getting ready to dive and slide into the frozen waters looking for fish to eat. What really tops off this underwater ice castle, is the bird frozen in flight. Water can be full of color, or clear as crystal, but it can also become the world's reflection!
It's All A Reflection
In this image, you can see the reflection of a nearby building appear as a man walks across the sand. The palm tree's fringes make an impact on the water, causing it to look as if Van Gogh had painted it himself. The building's glass and concrete look as if they were made of muted colors and wavy lines. The image reminds us that even when we're walking away from beauty, we can never truly escape it.
