On Monday, April 15, humanity lost timeless pieces of Gothic architecture when fire nearly destroyed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. The landmark, which took nearly two centuries to build, lost much of its 800-year-old roof and saw its 19th century spire collapse during the 15-hour blaze. Fortunately, its central structure is still intact, and French President Emmanuel Macron has pledged to restore Notre Dame within five years.

Hạ Long Bay, located in the Quảng Ninh Province of Vietnam, is a stunningly beautiful destination. Here, towering limestone pillars and tiny islands topped by rich, green forests rise from the waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. Halong translates as 'where the dragon descends into the sea' and local legend suggests that this seascape was created when a great mountain dragon charged towards the coast, its flailing tail gouging out the valleys and crevasses in its path. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe

Patches of vegetation poke through a snow-covered island on Gold Creek Pond, located in Kittitas County, Washington. During the 1970s, the pond and surrounding areas were one large gravel pit, which construction workers used in building the nearby Interstate 90 highway. The site was cleaned up in the early 1980s, revealing a picturesque mountain pond that is now surrounded by a popular hiking loop. /// Drone photo by @only_westrock

The Aral Sea was an endoheic lake (one with no outflow) located between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Once the fourth largest lake in the world with an area of 26,300 square miles (68,000 sq. km), it has been shrinking since the 1960s after rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet irrigation projects. By 1997, it had declined to 10% of its original size and split into four lakes, one of which has since disappeared. The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called one of the planet's worst environmental disasters. /// Created by @dailyoverview, source imagery: @digitalglobe

The Oosterscheldekering (Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier) is the largest in a series of 13 dams designed to protect the Netherlands from North Sea flooding. It spans about 5.6 miles (9 km) between the islands of Schouwen-Duiveland and Noord-Beveland, containing large sluicegate-type doors that can be closed under adverse weather conditions. Designed to last more than 200 years, the Oosterscheldekering is sometimes referred to as the eighth Wonder of the World. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe
