Most Spectacular Pictures of 2013
Hundreds of beautiful cranes take flight, obscuring the sky by a lake in northern Israel. The incredible picture was taken by Liron Hamelnick, 29, at Hula Lake Park. The majestic birds use the lake twice a year as a brief stopover from Europe to Africa.
This unforgettable image manages to capture three dolphins as they appear to be ‘flying’ above the water in South Africa. Lucky photographer Grant Atkinson spotted the friendly mammals playing in the surf off the coast of Cape Town.
This is the dramatic moment lightning strikes the Grand Canyon. Photographer Rolf Maeder had been on his way to snap the sunset in Arizona, America, but noticed thunderclouds rolling in above him. Before his eyes a lightning storm attacked the ancient rock of the Grand Canyon, allowing him to snap this unforgettable picture.
