    You should really proofread before you post something.

    • guest says:

      I was just thinking that.. some of the grammar on this post makes no sense and some of the descriptions aren’t where they belong in relevance to the pictures..

    • Baily says:

      I think you guys are being harsh and waaaaay tooooo critical..oh opps was that a gramatical error? Hah! get over it and just read the article, and see all the good in it rather than the bad. Ugh thats what makes me sad about people is they always choose to see the worst side of things! Such a shame indeed. I thought the article was great, it inspired me to want to see these places. Thanks for sharing :) I loved it!

  2. guest says:

  3. Person says:

    horribly written

  4. Person says:

    I don’t think English was the first language of this poster.

  5. Lapulga says:

    Belize is not in south america, gringo estupido!!! Learn your geography first.

  6. Ansel Ben says:

    why don’t people just leave it alone this person has done a wonderful thing by giving us the opportunity to see these amazing creations of nature, sure they don’t speak perfect English but who cares it shouldn’t bother anyone that much. and thank you for posting all of these pictures they really are beautiful 

  7. Orun Kabir says:

    Images for five and six are need to be swapped.

  8. Mariarangok says:

    Belize is in central America not south America… what is it with thinking everything south of Texas is south America?

  9. Person says:

    ME NO SPEAKA ENGRISH

  10. thedude says:

    holy shit do you people not realize that everyone who uses the internet doesn’t speak English as their primary language? There’s actually about 6.5 billion people who don’t have English as their first language.  Lighten the fuck up and quit being so god damn critical of people.

  11. qwerty says:

    If you’re so critical of the poster’s English why don’t you go find your own pictures of something beautiful and make a post about it. Stop being so damn critical.

  12. Mar says:

    Beautiful! Thank you!

  13. Geeezz.... says:

    BELIZE IS IN CENTRAL AMERICA

  14. jhulyan says:

    I’m from the Philippines, and we are really proud of the chocolate hill. :)

  15. guest says:

    i get can’t the meanings, here in this the text…

  16. Gilesmartin1981 says:

    if you are reading this your life is a tragic waste of time and energy…

  17. L Dave says:

    and “your mom’s” before every title.

  18. Mira says:

    I would love to visit Australia and see the Devil Boulders in person. I could really connect there. I wish I had the funds to visit all of these places. But pictures are nice. Just not the same :/ Love these though! They are all absolutely stunning :) Wonderful photography as well. Kudos!

  19. Nada says:

    My head hurts after trying to translate this into English. Also, the article starts with the text underneath the related picture but at some point half way, the pictures end up underneath. Confusing.

  20. Dana says:

    In the opening sentence, the person who put this site together made a glaring spelling mistake. People really should check their grammar and spelling before posting things on the internet. It’s difficult for me (and others, I’m sure) to take someone seriously if they can’t follow simple rules of the English language.

  21. pinay says:

    picture number 9 isn’t of the chocolate hills in Bohol.

  22. Ben A Taylor says:

    There is more than one form if english you fucktards! Yank speak different to poms, and poms different to aussies, aussies different to kiwi’s ect ect
    There is different meanings for words, there is different spelling for words, i.e ass(yank) is the same as arse(aussie). Fanny(yank) means bum. Fanny(aussie) means vagina. How about you people that think you so smart actually go and learn the 5-6 different types of english. Your comments just show how intelligent you trollers are

  23. Hooverhaar says:

    Although the pictures are nice, the grammar needs work.

  24. Drifter Smith says:

    “The most frequently photographed the canyon to the south-western United States is Antelope Canyon.”This is an incredibly ignorant assertion.  There is no way in hell that you could pack half as many people into Antelope Canyon (Upper and Lower combined)  as you usually see wandering around on the South Rim of Grand Canyon between, say, El Tovar and Bright Angel Lodge, anytime in the middle of the day, any day of the year.   And that’s only a very small section of the South Rim…there is also a North Rim, scads of folks on the river, and in the backcountry as well… 

  25. Ere says:

    Fucking Americans.

  26. Nick says:

    i think the descriptions for 5 and 6 are mismatched

  27. Jarrett says:

    If You speak English as your first language, you should be able to read this without being that confused. If you have a problem with the authors grammar, instead of critiquing their grammar, you should be concerned about your own critical thinking skills 

    • Jerry says:

      I’m glad someone here is using their brain! It’s not that hard to read at all. I think people just like making a fuss and embarrassing others more than anything.

  28. Iknowgrammer says:

    Learn some grammer and spelling!

  29. KV says:

    “Outside of Belize, a country in South America” …. 
    SERIOUSLY ? 

  30. Asdf says:

    Person who written article need better english learn.

  31. Anonymous says:

    I don’t think the Belizian Blue Hole was formed billions of years ago.  It is in a sinkhole in what is probably Cretaceous limestone where a cave roof fell in.  That would make the rock the cave formed in 60 to 90 million years old or so.  Not billions. And the hole itself probably formed when the roof fell in during glacial periods less than a million years ago.

    And ya’ll should back off the guy who pointed out the narrator’s first language was probably not English.  I agree.  It doesn’t damn him to hell, you know.

  32. MURIKASTRONG says:

    Beautiful pictures, terrible English. If you’re going to post to an English website, learn the language.

    • Jerry says:

      If you’re going to read a post that someone else spent their hard time bringing together, don’t complain about the grammar and be happy that someone brought you something worthwhile. As if it wasn’t understandable…

  33. Jetboy says:

    Belize is not in South America.  It is in Central America.  Just Sayin’

  34. Personman says:

    Did anyone point out that I think picture #6 and #5 are backwards? Or at least it seems that way to me based on the descriptions..

  35. Jerry says:

    Really everyone? Since when was it helpful at all to criticize and humiliate people for their grammar capabilities? Yes, it’s obvious they had some errors in the article, but I’m sure that if your first language is English, you did just fine in comprehending what they were trying to get across. There aren’t even that many errors. Shoot, their English is better than a lot of adult native speakers English I have seen.

    The post was great nonetheless. I loved it. The pictures and descriptions were amazing and well worth my time. Keep up the good research!
