UNUSUAL SHAPED LAKES
Added on: 5th Aug 2014
SCHULENSMEER LAKE – BELGIUM.
Giant water gun: Nature and man worked together to
unintentionally make a weapon out of Belgium’s 2.5 km
long Schulensmeer. A highway was constructed nearby
in the 1970’s and the parcels of land bought for it
turned the lake into a pistol shape.
ALASKA’S MT. MCKINLEY.
This frozen-over, fish-shaped wonder was captured on
Alaska’s Mt. McKinley, the highest mountain peak in
North America at around 6,194 metres. Mount McKinley actually
has a larger rise than Mount Everest, as its base sits at a
much lower elevation of 610 m, and is also bulkier than its
Himalayan rival. With such imposing facts, it’s no wonder this
obscurely fishy lake is less well known..
HORSESHOE LAKE, CANADA.
Canada’s aptly-named Horseshoe Lake might
bring luck for some.
HORSESHOE BEND, COLORADO RIVER.
This is Arizona’s Horseshoe Bend, a magnificent meander of the
Colorado River, not really a lake but it is situated slightly
downstream from Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National
Recreation Area. From the steep cliff above, some 305 metres
higher up, it makes a breath taking sight.
ENGAGING RING, CANADA.
One of the seven wonders of Canada, a ring-shaped
hydroelectric reservoir lake occupies the centre of Quebec’s
Manicouagan Crater. This shuttle view shows the prominent
70 kilometres diameter, ice-covered annular lake that fills a ring
where impact-brecciated rock has been eroded by glaciation.
THE RESERVOIR OF THE KIEV HYDROELECTRIC
It’s a large water reservoir for the Kiev Hydroelectric Power Plant
in Ukraine. It appears to be designed in the form of a bottle which
is mostly unintentional. Though it is a great bird’s eye view.
BLYTHEFIELD RESERVOIR IN STAFFORDSHIRE.
This is a totally natural lake view which appears to be
a dancing guy with hat.
LOCATED IN KOREA.
This is a heart shaped lake and appears to be an
artificially created pond on the roadside.
LOCATED IN ENGLAND.
This lake is shaped like the English letter ‘A’, though we’re
not sure if this is entirely a natural pond. The pond is quite
accurately shaped and makes an impression on its green
