Gippsland Lake Glows in the Dark - A Rare Sight...

Swimming is supposed to give you a healthy glow, but these swimmers were not quite sure what was going on when they took a late-night dip and turned a fluorescent shade of blue. "It was like we were playing with radioactive paint", said photographer Phil Hart who snapped the bizarre sight as his friends emerged from a lake in the dark of night.

The light is created by a chemical reaction called bioluminescence, which happens when a naturally-occuring micro-organism in the water is disturbed. These images are particularly stunning because the concentration of the micro-organism Noctiluca Scintillans was abnormally high when he took the photos at Gippsland Lakes in Victoria, Australia.

Phil, 34, put his camera on a very slow shutter speed and threw sand and stones into the water to cause the reaction and capture as much of the blue haze as possible.

It is believed the combination of bushfires and floods created the high levels of nutrients in the lakes for the organisms to feed.

5 World's Biggest Construction Vehicles

Krupp Bagger 288: World's Largest Trencher
To put it lightly, the Bagger 288 is a bucket-wheel excavator. But theres nothing light about a 13,500-ton mobile strip miner. The German creation is 721 feet long, 315 feet high, and can clear an area the size of a football field three stories deepin just one day.

Armored Caterpillar D9R: World's Heavily armored bulldozer
It's nickname is Doobi (Hebrew for teddy bear) but this heavily armored bulldozer is anything but soft and cuddly. With 15 tons of Israeli-engineered armor protecting the entire machine and bulletproof windows sealing in the cabin, this monster machine is equipped for construction, rescue, demolition, and even defending itself with custom-fitted grenade launchers and machine guns.

Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1: World's Biggest telescopic crane
The Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 telescopic crane is ridiculous. It can lift up to 1,200 tons. Its boom extends to 100 meters long with up to 126 meters of additional lattice. Rolling along on a nine-axle suspension, this bad boy can handle any job. Disc brakes come standard.

LeTourneau L-2350 Front End Loader: world's largest rubber-tire front loading vehicle
The world's largest rubber-tire front loading vehicle of its kind, the L-2350s bucket is roughly the size of a studio apartment. It has a 2,300 horsepower engine capable of lifting up to 160,000 lbs. The operator stands two stories off the ground, and the mammoth bucket extends to a maximum height of nearly 44 feet.

Rusch Triple 34-25 with Genesis 2500 Demolition Shear: world's largest demolition shear
Quite possibly the largest demolition shear in the world, the Genesis 2500 wields devastating power, especially mounted on the Rush excavator. It is a destruction machine with Godzilla-like force.
