Nan Madol, and ancient city on the island of Pohnpei in Micronesia. Its construction is still a bit of a mystery as the basalt columns used to build it come from hundreds of miles away. It's estimated that it was built around 800 years ago.

One of the things Winnipeg is famous for is this intersection. Portage and Main was once the centre for the banking industry in Western Canada, and is occasionally the brunt of popular jokes referring to it as the coldest and windiest intersection in Canada.
There are numerous cultural references to the intersection, including the 1992 Randy Bachman and Neil Young hit song "Prairie Town", with the chorus repeating the line "Portage and Main, 50 below". The British band Blurt have a song named "Portage & Main" on their album Kenny Rogers' Greatest Hit. It is also the setting for the Stompin' Tom Connors song "Red River Jane".

Skull of a Japanese sailor in a shipwreck in Truk Lagoon. The lagoon is located in the state of Chuuk, in Micronesia and was the site of Operation Hailstone, where over 80 ships were obliterated by US forces. It's now an underwater museum and the best wreck diving in the world. This was taken deep inside the ship at a depth of almost 40 meters. The redness of the photo is due to 60+ years of rust formation.

Sokeh's Rock, on the island of Pohnpei, in Micronesia. Sokeh's is a basalt formation and next to Diamondhead in Oahu, is the most recognizable geological feature in the Pacific Islands. Taken at the water's surface while waiting for the boat to pick me up from an evening dive.
