|Fire Falls,Yosemite National Park, USA|
No, it's not lava - so it would be too easy. Horse Tail Falls (Horsetail Fall) lights up every February: for two weeks, the sun's rays fall on it at an angle so that the waterfall looks like he is out of the flames - a phenomenon often referred to as ognepadom. Usually ognepad can be observed only for ten minutes at sunset when the clouds do not obscure the sky.
Ognepad difficult to photograph, but, nevertheless, it has been a lot of pictures, among which there are also fake: in Yosemite for almost a century, from 1872 to 1968, the year a group of people were going to stir up a giant bonfire and then discharging coals from a cliff Glacier Point.
National Park rangers eventually asked people to stop this occupation for some mysterious reason - in fact, this is why people can not throw burning coals from a rock? So now I have to be content with the present ognepadom in that fabulous moment when the sunlight dancing on the water.
|The miracle of Moses, South Korea|
Under the "miracle of Moses" refers to the fact that for a very brief period in the spring you can walk along the coastal waters around the small South Korean island - get a grasp: you can walk on water.

"Moses Miracle" phenomenon is named after a similar event described in the Bible - Moses made the waters of the Red Sea in different ways: it can be said that the Bible indirectly contributed to the development of the local tourism industry.
We Koreans have their own story about the origin of the phenomenon of the Yellow Sea: it says that once bred on the island of Jindi many bloodthirsty tiger, then all the people who lived on the island fled to Modo, believing that there is something no tigers - all except one old women who forgot to bring. She prayed to the God of the Seas, that he created a way, and she, too, could go on Modo - God of the Ocean heed to her request, and the woman was rescued. However, it can be assumed that the God of the Ocean had a specific sense of humor or lack of knowledge about the local fauna - the Tigers did not afraid of the water.

Green Lake in Austria is something more than just a body of water, lost somewhere in the middle of the mountain range Hochschwab, although most of the year the depth of the lake is less than two meters, and around it grows a lot of greens, and there are hiking trails that make this place ideal for hiking.
But so it is only in the winter, while the snow lies on the slopes of the mountains in summer the snow melts and the huge amount of water cascading from the lake flows into the valley, creating a wonderful water world.
