Kastellet — or “The Citadel” in English — is a star fortress located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was built in October 1664 as part of a continuous ring of star forts surrounding the city, and it remains one of the best preserved ramparts of its kind in Northern Europe. Kastellet still houses some Danish military operations today, though it primarily serves as a public park and historic site.

Evaporation ponds are visible at the Intrepid Potash Mine in Moab, Utah, USA. The mine produces muriate of potash, a potassium-containing salt that is a major component in fertilizers. The salt is pumped to the surface from underground brines and dried in massive solar ponds that vibrantly extend across the landscape. As the water evaporates over the course of 300 days, the salts crystallize out. The blue color seen here occurs because the water is dyed a deep blue to absorb more sunlight and heat, thereby reducing the amount of time it takes for the water to evaporate and the potash to crystallize.
