The HMVS Cerberus (Her Majesty's Victorian Ship) was scuttled in 1926 to serve as a breakwater on Half Moon Bay, just southeast of Melbourne, Australia. Before it was deliberately sunk, it served in the Victoria Naval Forces, Commonwealth Naval Forces and the Royal Australian Navy from 1871 to 1924. Sitting in about 10 feet (3 m) of water roughly 650 feet (200 m) from shore, the Cerberus is now a popular site for scuba diving and has been used as a training site for combat swimmers.

Lake Powell is a reservoir on the Colorado River, straddling the border between Utah and Arizona, USA. Behind Lake Mead, it is the second largest man-made reservoir by volume in the country, capable of storing 7.9 trillion gallons (29.9 trillion liters) of water when full. Water levels on the Colorado River have been below average since 2000, made evident by the light-colored layer of rock just above Lake Powell's surface.

Skyline Boulevard (officially State Route 35) runs through a residential neighborhood in the Westlake District of Daly City, California. Located just south of San Francisco, Westlake is one of the first post-World War II suburbs in the United States. Its endless rows of uniform homes were the inspiration for Malvina Reynolds' 1962 folk song, "Little Boxes" — which singer Pete Seeger turned into the anti-conformity anthem of its era.

A turbine interchange connects the SR 9A and SR 202 in Jacksonville, Florida, USA. Also known as a whirlpool interchange, this structure consists of left-turning ramps sweeping around a center interchange, thereby creating a spiral pattern of right-hand traffic. This type of junction is rarely built, due to the vast amount land that is required to construct the sweeping roads.

A massive bloom of cyanobacteria in Seen in the Baltic Sea. In August 2015, a bloom spanning more than 100 square kilometers covered these waters. Cyanobacteria are a type of marine bacteria that capture and store solar energy through photosynthesis. While some are toxic to humans and animals, large blooms can cause an oxygen-depleted dead zone where other organisms cannot survive.

This Overview captures bucket-wheel excavators at the Tagebau Hambach open-pit mine in Niederzier and Elsdorf, Germany. These massive machines (up to 315 feet tall and 730 feet long) continuously scoop materials from the surface in order to extract lignite. Lignite, often referred to as “brown coal,” is a soft combustible sedimentary rock that is formed from naturally compressed peat and is used as a fuel for steam-electric power generation.
