Amazing Photgraphy

As with many of my posts, these were sent to me via email and I am unsure of sources.
I have inserted "links" where ever appropriate for more information on the photo

Thor's Well in Oregon

Emerald Lake, New Zealand
Desert with Scorpion Weed flowering once in several years

Balloons over Cappadocia, Turkey

The view from BurjKhalifa, tallest tower in the world
Looking straight down

The "Crooked Forest" of Gryfino, Poland, clearly humanly interrupted and formed.  
See link for more interesting information and comments 

View from Skagen, where the Baltic and North Seas meet, having differing densities.
Star Tower in Kaunas, and night

Marcus Levine and his Nail Art

The Lena Pillars in Russia

Banpo Bridge in Seoul, Korea

Favelas of Brazil, separating poverty and wealth, such a fine line.

Sent to me as a guest home on the Isle of Lamu, not so, but beautiful still.

The view from inside the wave

Danxia example, China
 The Danxia landform refers to various landscapes found in southeast and southwest China that "consist of a red bed characterized by steep cliffs". It is a unique type of petrographic geomorphology found in China. Danxia landform is formed from red-colored sandstones and conglomerates of largely Cretaceous age. The landforms look very much like karst topography that forms in areas underlain by limestones, but since the rocks that form Danxia are sandstones and conglomerates, they have been called "pseudo-karst" landforms. Danxia landforms cover several provinces in southeast China. Taining County, Fujian Province, has very good examples of "young" danxia landforms wherein deep, narrow valleys have been formed. As the landform gets older, valleys widen and one gets isolated towers and ridges.
The Danxia landform is named after Mount Danxia, one of the most famous 
examples of the Danxia landform.
