1.The Lake Eros had a hand in
2 The Lake that leads the Latin Alphabet
3. Schulensmeer Lake – Belgium
4. McKinley Lake – Alaska
5. Sao Paulo Lake – Brazil
This next shape is clearly a product of deliberate human intervention in the natural landscape, a figure that stands some 140 metres tall in a lake located near Iacanga in the Brazilian state of São Paulo. However, aside from its location and vital statistics, information about this strange piece of land art is scarce. Anyone know anything we don’t? If so, pray do tell.
6.The Lake that says ‘How do you do?’
The previous lake may have been man-shaped by design, but this next one looks more natural; natural but not au naturel – see he’s wearing a hat and cane as he walks across the countryside. We’re not sure where this is, but we’ve featured it on EG before and one commenter reckoned it could be Blythefield Reservoir in Staffordshire, England; another said it must be Mr. Peanut of Planters fame.
7. Horseshoe Lake – Canada
8. Fisheating Creek – Florida
9.Horseshoe Bend – Arizona
10.Heart shaped lake, possibly in Korea
Look hard enough and you’ll see the physical environment, both natural and man-made, has a message for us – sometimes in the most unusual places. Lakes and other bodies of water aren’t the first places one might expect to discern symbols, figures and other shapes, but viewed from above they can be surprisingly communicative. We’ve scoured the globe for images of lakes whose shapes speak volumes.
