Gibraltar Partially Covered by Cloud
A cloud partially covers the tip of the Rock of the British territory of Gibraltar at sunrise from La Atunara port before Spanish fishermen sail in their fishing boats with their relatives to take part in a protest at an area of the sea where an artificial reef was built by Gibraltar using concrete blocks, in Algeciras bay, La Linea de la Concepcion in southern Spain August 18, 2013. For just over an hour some 30 fishing boats circled where 70 3-tonne concrete blocks were dropped in July to form a reef that Spain said was not legal and prompted the government to ramp up border checks with the British overseas territory.

The skyline of lower Manhattan, as seen from Exchange Place, is mostly in darkness except for the Goldman Sachs building after a preventive power outage caused by giant storm Sandy, in New York October 30, 2012. Millions of people in the eastern United States awoke on Tuesday to flooded homes, fallen trees and widespread power outages caused by Sandy, which swamped New York City's subway system and submerged streets in Manhattan's financial district. More than two-thirds of the U.S. East Coast's refining capacity was shut down and fuel pipelines idled due to Hurricane Sandy. Early assessments show the region's biggest plants may have escaped without major damage.

Guinness World Record for the highest number of riders on a single wave at Muizenberg
South African surfers take to the water in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the highest number of riders on a single wave at Muizenberg in Cape Town, September 2, 2007. The surfers posted an unoficial tally of 71 riders standing on a single wave for more than five seconds, easily surpassing the official record of 44. This total, however, still has to be ratified by the body, as does the 73 recorded at the same venue last year.
