The blue icebergs pictured here in the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia are actually that blue (in other words, #nofilter). In fact, “Paine” is a Tehuelche Indian word for “blue”). Love a good wintry scene? Then you’ll love these photos of the world’s most incredible glaciers.

The Gulf of Tonkin is a saltwater bay in between Vietnam and China, comprised of three smaller bays, Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and Lan Ha Bay, all featuring thousands of limestone islands and caves. Pictured here is Halong Bay with many tourist boats, but there are still many parts of the Gulf of Tonkin that are untouched and ready to explore.
