Going camping is a very romantic concept, but in order for everything to be pleasant you need a few essentials. From a good sleeping pad to safety precautions, certain gadgets are needed to make nature feel like home. You certainly don’t want to be stranded in the middle of nowhere with no clean water and good shelter.

You’re relaxing in your room and streaming some good tunes when suddenly, the network’s down. You try rebooting your phone, but there’s still no connection. Out of nowhere, your sister barges into your room in panic. She’s screaming something about rings. Boxing rings? Wedding rings? Rings on the tub? She’s not making any sense. So she drags you out of the house and shows you the sky. You take a look-up and see streaks of objects forming miles above the Earth’s surface. Her connection seems to work. The two of you check online what’s going on, and everywhere the same thing is making headlines: Rings are suddenly appearing in our sky! #Earthrings is breaking the hashtag record and videos are going super viral. Your sister can’t help but join the crowd and takes a bunch of selfies with the sky.
You’re hiking in the wilderness, looking for a safe spot to set up camp, all you can hear are leaves and branches cracking under your footsteps... Some squirrels are running up a tree over there! But suddenly, something unexpected happens. You notice something weird in the distance in between the trees, it kinda looks like a concrete structure of some sort! Weird... At this point, you’re at least 20 miles deep into the woods and there are no nearby towns or villages...as far as you know. So, you decide to go off the trail with your friends to get a closer look. But as you get nearer you realize that it’s actually a 12-foot-tall staircase, and it’s leading to... Nowhere? Hmm. What’s it doing there, in the middle of literally nowhere? And it doesn’t even lead to anything. You put on your Sherlock Holmes cap and investigate. So...maybe there used to be an old house or mansion here that collapsed over the years and the only thing left is this staircase? But weirdly enough, after circling the bizarre structure you realize there’s no trace of any ruins or even foundations! It’s like someone just sliced a staircase off their house, cake style, and plopped it here, for no reason. Ok...

Did you know that the largest living creature on our planet is a mushroom? I know, your first thought was probably a whale or some large tree, like the Sequoia. Surprisingly, if we look at square footage, the largest single living organism is a species of mycelium called Armillaria Ostoyae or the honey mushroom. And you can find it in Oregon’s Malheur National Forest. It stretches across 3 square miles! Not only is it the largest, but it’s also thought to be the oldest organism as well, estimated to be around 8,000 years old! Some scientists believe that mushrooms are intelligent, too. Well, sort of — they don’t have emotions and aren’t actually capable of thinking. But they do have some of the most complex and extensive communication systems in the world.
Alright. You’re scuba diving in the ocean, watching corals and colorful fish flitting by, when suddenly an enormous shadow appears above you. You look up and see a massive creature approaching you, its mouth a gaping abyss... Relax, just stay still and you’ll be fine.
[SFX: “Huge red monsters! Stay at home! Close all the windows and doors!”] The blare of a loudspeaker chimes throughout the area. You jump out of bed, confused. The alarm call continues: [SFX: “Keep indoors! Huge red monsters!”]You run out to the balcony and look down. Police cars, ambulances, and even fire trucks with roaring sirens swerve down the road. People run along the sidewalk shouting, “Ants!!!”
Whenever you hear about ancient ruins, you almost never picture them being suspended somewhere, or just randomly hanging on the branch of a tree, right? In fact, for most of the ancient artifacts we have exposed in museums all over the world, archeologists did quite an impressive amount of digging!
Even the most predictable thing can become extraordinary. A tree can grow upside down. A rock formation can look like a hamburger. And if you decide to take a walk in the forest and see a portal there, don’t get surprised. Maybe it’s just a uniquely crafted spider web.
Living our lives can be tricky, as sometimes we can find ourselves in situations that are difficult to get out of on our own. Fortunately, the world is filled with good people that are always willing to go out of their way to help others in need and make us somehow feel special and cared for.To honor these kind people, Bright Side decided to gather these examples that can fill your heart with hope in humanity.
Reddit is one of the most visited websites online where users publish millions of photos every day. And among them, there are photos that give a lot of new information to users. And some photos become truly special after you read the captions.
As humans, we tend to seek out patterns in things. Most of us have laid back on lazy summer afternoons, looking for shapes in the sky. This is the reason why we can see bunnies or dragons in the clouds. Or naughty outlines in trees and leaves. Scientifically, it’s called pareidolia.
A ghost hiding in a grill oven, a spooky forest on your butter knife, or a man engulfed by a tree — these might be the perfect characters for the next big thriller movie. Some of the following pieces of accidental art might seem slightly scary at first, and others may need an explanation to be cracked, but they get us into the Halloween mood, no matter what time of year it actually is.
Mother Nature is constantly surprising us with fascinating and unusual wonders, she never slows down. From trees that look like they have eyes to a potato that is shaped like a heart, natural wonders come in all shapes and sizes.Bright Side loves to see the fascinating discoveries and natural wonders people are able to find, so we’ve collected 16 photos showing exactly that.
A tree that looks like it crafted a human baby with its trunk, and a sea slug that at first seems like a plant are just a couple of examples that show how creative nature is. It’s only when we truly open our eyes that we will be able to see that nature’s art is nothing but pure perfection.
They say that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. But then again, so does art. What may look like just an ordinary, everyday thing to someone, may be shaped into something extraordinarily beautiful by others. Like a dead tree whittled into something mythical. Or a rock pile turned into funny little things.
Mother Nature never sleeps. And often, when we least expect it, we might get blown away by its creations. Whether it’s an overly pruned hand after swimming or an apple that managed to grow between tree branches, nature’s artistic skills can surpass our imagination in every way.
From time to time, nature is willing to interfere with an everyday routine and set its own rules. It can be lightning that highlights a tornado or a stream that’s decided to go through the middle of a tree. Sometimes, it turns out to be weird, sometimes — fascinating, but each time, we’re in awe.
Mother Nature loves surprising people with all sorts of feats and creations. From beautiful hidden patterns inside tree trunks to birds that catch free rides on even bigger birds, these are things that make Earth a magical place to live in. And when they’re captured through a lens, we all get to enjoy them.
Life can never be boring if you keep a watchful eye on things: an unorthodox bench design, street art referencing an old video game, or an entire hidden world inside of a tree trunk. Some of this stuff will either leave you perplexed or with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Either way, you don’t want to miss out!
In order to not turn the purchase of new lodging into a scene from the Ratatouille movie, a horror movie, or a detective thriller, one needs to have a thorough approach to the process. But as the characters from our compilation have figured out, there is no way to stave off surprises.
People who act without hesitation in an emergency situation, like nurses, firefighters, and cops, have rewired their brains and are able to control their fear response. The ordinary person can do this too with experience and repetition. And whether it’s being trapped inside a room that is rapidly filling with water or one that is on fire, we have to act quickly. Luckily for you, there is a safe way to test just how good your survival skills are!
Princess Diana would say, “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” Whether we call it karma or the law of the conservation of energy, it’s true that kind actions pay off sooner or later.
Nature is a perfect imitator. You can find a tree that looks like an ear, your grandmother may grow a radish in her garden that has the shape of an ant, and a sea anemone can be the spitting image of Kenny, from South Park. The world has many little wonders in store for us.
One thing that never gets old is the beauty of nature. It always has something stunning in store for us, just waiting to be discovered and photographed. From snow forming in shapes to strange yet gorgeous things, such as a twisted tree, nature’s wonders will forever be unmatched.
Be it an action figure stuck inside a tree or a wasp nest on a light bulb, some people end up finding the strangest yet interesting things around them. We don’t know if it’s luck or being in the right place at the right time, but we’re sure intrigued by some of the things humans randomly stumble upon.
Be it a jalapeño disguised as a T-rex or putting seashells up on the tops of trees — as it turns out, sometimes nature loves breaking its own rules. By pulling tricks when we least expect them, it’s almost as if nature actually likes to toy with humans for a good laugh.
Even after hearing several warning messages, people may think that nothing serious is ever going to happen to them. Bit this leaves us vulnerable and unprepared in dangerous situations. No, emergencies don’t happen all that often, but we still need to learn how to react so our chances of survival are good.
We have 7 wonders of the ancient world and 7 natural wonders. But it seems to us that these lists are too small. After all, a tree that can grow fruit on its trunk, a pizza stone, and a rainbow cloud can also be considered “one of a kind” and definitely deserve our attention.
Seeing faces in places where they’re not supposed to be is a pretty common thing, and we bet it’s happened to you too. There’s even a word that describes this phenomenon — it’s called pareidolia. In clouds, in trees, in an open container of ice cream, or even in a T-shirt hanging on a chair — faces are everywhere if we just use a bit of our imagination.
Encountering wild animals in a big city is perhaps only possible in a zoo, however, exceptions can still apply anywhere. Sometimes animals run away from their careless owners and roam around the city. But usually meeting wild animals face-to-face happens in forests where people go to pick mushrooms and berries, or simply go for a picnic. It’s good if a person meets a nice squirrel, but what if a bear, a wolf, or a wild boar appears in the field where you’re going to pick blackberries?
From accidentally summoning the spirit of a unicorn in your campfire to finding dog faces hidden in a tree, spotting eyes and faces in non-living objects is actually normal. The scientific name for it is “anthropomorphism” but there’s more to it. At times, there are also things that look totally different than what they’re supposed to, completely tricking a person upon first glance.
Nature can never be completely understood. A giant snail, crazy-looking clouds, a tree growing inside a STOP sign... Yep, nature is the only one who decides what is normal and what isn’t. It’s just up to us to accept things as they are and bask in the creative glory that is served to us every single day.
Perfection is everywhere. You can find it in a piece of tuna, on the trunk of a tree, or even in a plate that broke exactly in half. Small things like these make us feel satisfied, similar to the way we feel after everything in our room gets perfectly organized.
