2 years ago

Whatever the epoch, people have always been fascinated by nature. Back in ancient times, they used to believe that thunder, for example, is caused by the intervention of supernatural creatures. This lead to many similar myths across the world, despite all the differences between cultures. Even today, there are still some things in nature that can amaze us.

We at Now I’ve Seen Everything picked some photos of nature with a guaranteed wow-effect.
