Geology rocks. Pun very much intended. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the hardcore things that make up the bedrock of what Bored Panda is all about — beautiful pictures that are hot as lava. Please excuse my dad jokes.


A geologist named Will is known for collecting and uploading amazing shots he finds on Google Earth. Some of them are very peculiar. Others are breathtakingly gorgeous. But one thing is for certain — all of them are worth seeing. Scroll through our list of Will’s amazing discoveries, upvote your favorites, and rock on.

This is another collection of interesting things I found while exploring Google Earth.


The Platte River in Nebraska (USA). The mid-channel bars are clearly visible here. There is some old saying about this river that goes something like, “1 mile wide and 1 foot deep.” Or something like that.

Here is the Platte River again with some clearer water. It’s such a pretty braided river.

The Bay of Fundy has the largest tidal ranges in the world. We can clearly see the tidal currents at work here.

Still the Bay of Fundy, this time at high tide.

Here we are at low tide. I forgot to add a scale, but you can imagine how long that mud flat is.

The circular feature here currently a slight depression. That depression is the only evidence for the largest domestic explosion in the UK’s history. At least I think this is it. I was lead to the area by some info from an old forum.

This is the flood plain of the Danube River in Hungary. We can see an old oxbow lake W of Makad and lots of evidence of past natural levees (all the swirly lines).

Back to the Bay of Fundy. I’m guessing these are enclosures for fish farming.
