The Blood Falls
You might think this image was doctored or colored in some way, but we assure you this is a real thing you can go and see for yourself. Found in Antarctica, this place goes by the smartly named “Blood Falls.” We bet you cannot figure out why! It was discovered in 1911 by Australian geologist Thomas Griffith Taylor, the glacier it is on and the entire valley itself is named after him. The Blood Falls is essentially an outflow of an iron oxide-tainted plume of saltwater. This flows into the Taylor Glacier, onto the ice-covered surface of West Lake Bonney in Taylor Valley. The iron-rich water seeps from the glacier, giving it a reddish appearance…making it look a lot like blood.
