Waterfalls  Lakes Plitvice, Croatia (National Park)
Is among the 20 most beautiful lakes in the world to 17th place. The park covers an area of 33,000 hectares and includes 16 lakes in succession, connected by waterfalls.Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europa.All'interno the park there are also many caves of which only a small part is agibile.I lakes are formed by two rivers: the White River and the Black River, which flow in the river Korana. The waters of these rivers are rich in calcareous salts (mostly calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate), from the dissolution of carbonate rocks forming the geological structure of sito.Questi salts are precipitated by vegetation, forming layers of travertine , a sedimentary rock recently. Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to water, growing by about a centimeter per year. At one point the water pressure breaks these natural levees, opening new paths in the ground.
This mechanism, in fact common to all the calcareous water, in Plitvice has assumed a particular importance.
The beauty of the National Park Plitvice, Croatia, is increased in the second round of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

Milky Way Moonrise & Fresh Snow at Boulder Beach, Maine, USA 
Adam: "It's that time of year again! Milky Way season has arrived in the northeast and I was lucky enough to not only have clear skies on the very first night of the season but to also have fresh snow in Acadia! It snowed all day the day before this shot, and the storm didn't clear out until late at night, leaving beautiful fresh snow all over the landscape."

"This is the rocky shore of Boulder Beach, which is a beach of rounded small boulders, and covered in snow it looks quite different. And to top it off, the moon rose before it was too bright out. Venus also rose not long after just to the right of the moon, but it was too far into astronomical twilight by then and the Milky Way was getting washed out. The orange glow on the left half of the horizon is from the sun approaching the horizon, about 90 minutes before sunrise."

Location: Acadia National Park, Maine, United States
Release Date: February 6, 2016
Technical details: "Nikon D810A and Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 @ 14mm and f/2.8, with some cropping in post. This is a blend of 4 main images, but 13 total exposures. The sky is from 10 shots at ISO 10,000, 10 seconds each, that were stacked with Starry Landscape Stacker for Mac to create a sky shot with pinpoint stars and low noise. The foreground is from 3 shots all at f/2.8 and different focus points to get the entire scene in focus, 1 at ISO 1600 for 4 minutes, and 2 at ISO 3200 for 2 minutes. The snow and approaching sunrise made the landscape so bright that I didn't need to do my usual 8 minute foreground exposures that I would be doing in the summer in Acadia."
