World's most amazing photos - Part 4: "Breathtaking Moments"
The story behind the photos:
Photo Number 10:
The Bagger 288 (Excavator 288), built by the German company Krupp for the energy and mining firm Rheinbraun, is a bucket-wheel excavator or mobile strip mining machine. When its construction was completed in 1978, Bagger 288 superseded NASA's Crawler-Transporter, used to carry the Space Shuttle and Apollo Saturn V launch vehicle, as the largest land vehicle in the world at 13,500 tons.

A Photo by National Geographic, showing a photographer filming a blue whale,
The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is a marine mammal belonging to the suborder of baleen whales (called Mysticeti). At 30 meters (98 ft) in length and 180 metric tons (200 short tons) or more in weight, it is the largest animal ever known to have existed.

This photo shows a car that felled into a huge sinkhole. A sinkhole, also known as swallow hole, is a natural depression or hole in the Earth's surface caused by karst processes — the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks or suffusion processes for example in sandstone. Sinkholes may vary in size from 1 to 600 meters (3.3 to 2,000 ft) both in diameter and depth. Sinkholes may be formed gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide.
Photo Number 7:
That man in the top of this photo, That's Captain Brian Bews and he's lucky to be alive. The skilled pilot barely managed to eject before his CF-18 fighter jet crashed during a practice flight. The practice flight took place at Lethbridge County Airport and was apparently in preparation for the weekend air show in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. There are no details as to exactly why the jet fighter went down.
Photo Number 6:
Winnie Langley An iron-lunged pensioner has celebrated her 100th birthday by lighting up her 170,000th cigarette from a candle on her birthday cake. Winnie started smoking only days after the First World War broke out in June 1914 when she was just seven-years-old - and has got through five a day ever since. Speaking at her 100th birthday party Winnie said: "I have smoked ever since infant school and I have never thought about quitting".
Photo Number 5:
A famous picture of São Paulo, Brazil. Showing Morumbi (district of São Paulo) on the border with Paraisopolis favela. The picture shows the unbelievable differences between rich and poor in Brazil, slums in one side and private pools at the other.
Photo Number 4:
This is a photo by John Burcham showing climbers John Mattson and Josh Zimmerman on top of Uli Biaho Tower. Uli Biaho (6109 m / 20,058 feet) is a peak near Trango Towers and Baltoro Glacier in the Northern Areas of Pakistan.
Photo Number 3:
A stunning picture of stingray migration. Looking like giant leaves floating in the sea thousands of Golden Rays are seen here gathering off the coast of Mexico. The spectacular scene was captured as the magnificent creatures made one of their biannual mass migrations to more agreeable waters. Gliding silently beneath the waves they turned vast areas of blue water to gold. Sandra Critelli, an amateur photographer, stumbled across the phenomenon while looking for whale sharks.
She said: 'It was an unreal image, very difficult to describe.
Photo Number 2:
This very famous picture is from an article titled "The Amazing Frog Eating Bat" by Merlin Tuttle in National Geographic, January 1982. The photo has won the National Geographic "photo of the year 1982" award.
Photo Number 1:
The fish in the photo is a Whale Shark; the largest recorded specimen was 12.65 metres (41.50 ft) and so easily dwarfs many recreational fishing boats. The Whale Shark is a slow moving filter feeding shark that is well known for its willingness to let boats and even swimmers come close and sometimes even touch it.
