Teahupo’o, the name of the famous, large reef break in Tahiti. Named after a village on the southwest coast of the island, the break is renowned for its consistent barrels, heavy waves and shallow shoreline.
An extremely shallow coral reef, which ranges up to 50 cm (20 inches) beneath the water’s surface creates a unique wave shape with an effect of almost breaking below sea level.

Kelimutu, a volcano, close to the small town of Moni in central Flores Island of Indonesia. The volcano contains three striking summit crater lakes of varying colors.
Tiwu Ata Mbupu (Lake of Old People) is usually blue, while the other two lakes, Tiwu Nuwa Muri Koo Fai (Lake of Young Men and Maidens) and Tiwu Ata Polo (Enchanted Lake) are separated by a shared crater wall and are typically green or red respectively.
The lake colors vary on a periodic basis. Subaqueous fumaroles are the probable cause of active upwelling that occurs at the two eastern lakes.
