"Chirkei hydro power plant is situated on the Sulak river of Dagestan. It is the largest HPP in the North Caucasus, the highest arch dam of Russia. And probably it is also one of the most beautiful dams in the country.

Well I think yes angles do make a difference, but maybe a bit of make-up and / or photoshop can also make a big difference lol


"..The reef has shocked and amazed its discoverers with its immensity. Robin Beaman, a research fellow at James Cook University, explains, "We've known about these geological structures in the northern Great Barrier Reef since the 1970s and 80s, but never before has the true nature of their shape, size and vast scale been revealed." Beaman and the rest of the team were able to reveal the watery wonder using high-resolution seafloor data from a LiDAR-equipped aircraft belonging to the Royal Australian Navy..."
