This is the incredible story of Harrison Okene, the cook and only survivor of the ship 'Jason 4' that sunk in the Atlantic ocean, 30 kilometers from Nigeria's shores.
He was trapped for around three days at the bottom of the sea in an air pocket of the sunken ship, without anything to eat or drink.
Luckily saved by friends' quick reaction
That’s how nature works, there’s always a bigger one…
At first it’s like ‘epic fail’, then ‘not bad…’
Til you realize what’s going on…
These amazing photos are of an eruption of an underwater volcano in the South Pacific. The power of Mother Nature is truly incredible. Although these photos were taken at some distance you can almost feel the power.
Gruner See is a green lake in Austria. In fact, this is a meadow in the woods, but it’s very unusual. From May to July it is filled up with water coming down from the mountains. In some places this lake’s depth is up to 8 meters. The water here is crystal clear.
These amazing underwater photos were taken by Alex Tipple. They were taken off the Australian coast and feature surfers and swimmers who are engulfed in whitewater. They show what a beating they take during the split second moments of being rocked by the huge waves.
The photos in this post are of a man and his son wrestling a 20 foot long anaconda that weighs 120 lbs. underwater. The man is the famous snake handler and all around adventurer, Ross Allen. While it is apparent that the two were never in any real danger, you couldn’t tell it by looking at these photos.
The diver and photographer Brian Skerry takes incredible underwater pictures.
He worked for many notorious magazines as People, Sports Illustrated, BBC Wildlife, Esquire, and even Playboy. He’s also an assignment photographer for National Geographic Magazine. It is no wonder, as his works are mind-blowing.

I can’t wait till summer comes. I enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving. It’s amazing to explore the underwater world this way. It is very beautiful just like the photos inside this post.
