Waves roll in to Chicama, Peru. The area is well-known for having one of the longest surfs in the world, especially at “The Point”, a spot where you can allegedly surf a single wave for up to over 2 km if conditions are right. Also can anyone help us identify the collection of lines that appear on the beach here?  -8.005710, -79.188262  Instagram: http://bit.ly/2nqO7b3  Source imagery: DigitalGlobe

Standing at 12,389 ft, Mount Fuji is the tallest mountain in Japan. Fuji is an active volcano that last erupted December 16, 1707. The eruption did not result in any immediate deaths, but many people died as a result of the volcanic ash that significantly reduced agricultural production, causing many people to starve. It is estimated that between 200,000 and 400,000 people climb Mount Fuji every year.   35.358056, 138.731111  Instagram: http://bit.ly/2nP7UO6  Source imagery: DigitalGlobe

The salt evaporation ponds seen here cover roughly 10 square miles (26 square km) in San Francisco Bay, California. Salt is extracted from the water here through a lengthy process. First, water from the bay is channeled into massive basins where it begins a transformation into brines. Over five years, the brines evaporate, concentrate, and travel several miles before they are collected as pure salt crystals. The massive ponds get their vibrant color from a particular species of algae that…
