The world is full of some amazing natural spectacles and from a young age I have been so fascinated with plants and animals, probably from spending too much time at my Nan's in front of the Natural World with orange lollies, taking in the majesty of the great wildebeest migration, but it never gets old! I'm forever being surprised with just how beautiful the planet is and I have been losing hours poring over gorgeous photos on Pinterest...damn that website and it's gravitational pull! Here are some of my favourites
Icebergs have always interested me and the intricate swirls and lines carved into the ice make it look like a sculpture you'd find on exhibition at The Tate! This is a spiral berg, photography by Steve Bulford in the Antarctic from Red Bubble. What a stunning photo.
This is a McMurdo Dry Valley, normally found in the Antartctic. They're considered deserts as they lack snow so are devoid of any moisture. I love the differences in colour from the white of the ice to the russet/iron colour of the desert, it's like someone's dropped a jar of honey and it's spilt everywhere. The colours are just amazing!
Mount Huashaun in China, is one of the places I really want to go to in the future. It's one of the countries most well known mountains and for good reason. With the mist rising and the other peaks viewable in the distance it looks like a scene from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
These strangely animal-like rocks are found at the Kangaroon Island Wilderness Retreat in Australia and I love them! The variations of cream and red in the rocks is so pretty and the odd shapes that have been weathered into the rocks is fantastic.
Sigiyura, or Lion's Rock as it's also known is an ancient rock fortress in Sri Lanka. How stunning must the views be from the top of it? Apparently ancient paintings can be found within the fortress walls, I'd be like Indiana Jones exploring every nook and cranny!
Last but never least the ever impressive Uluru or Ayers Rock in Australia. The flat-topped, red sandstone mass of rock has always enchanted me. It looks so lonely in the desert but the gorgeous deep red has always attracted me to it and I would love to climb it and see the view from the top.
Has anyone seen or visited any of these fantastic places before?
All of these photos came from a lovely lady on Pinterest. She has a ton of other photos similar on her board, All over The World.
Hope you're all enjoying your week!
