Take a Look at the Beautiful World Around You

Fairy Walking Bridge Mt. Huang - China


This fantastic looking small, dizzyingly high, pedestrian bridge spanning a very narrow and deep sheer divide between two rock faces is the Buxian Bridge, popularly known as Fairy Walking Bridge. Built in 1987 it is part of mountain hiking trail in Xihai Grand Canyon, Huangshan, China aka Mt. Huang



Have fun walking up there!

Mammatus Clouds Wiki


When do cloud bottoms appear like bubbles? Normal cloud bottoms are flat because moist warm air that rises and cools will condense into water droplets at a very specific temperature, which usually corresponds to a very specific height.

After water droplets form that air becomes an opaque cloud. Under some conditions, however, cloud pockets can develop that contain large droplets of water or ice that fall into clear air as they evaporate. Such pockets may occur in turbulent air near a thunderstorm, being seen near the top of an anvil cloud, for example. Resulting mammatus clouds can appear especially dramatic if sunlit from the side.

The Dark Gorge - Austria1 [/url]


I've visited some smaller spots in the area around the mountains that I hiked this weekend. This little gorge is called "Lammeröfen" and this particular spot "Dark Gorge". Look at my shutter speed and you know why ...









Ajanta Caves - India Wiki


The Ajanta Caves , Maharashtra, India are 31 rock-cut cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE. The caves include paintings and sculptures considered to be masterpieces of both Buddhist religious art (which depict the Jataka tales)[1] as well as frescos which are reminiscent of the Sigiriya paintings in Sri Lanka.[2] The caves were built in two phases starting around 200 BCE, with the second group of caves built around 600 CE

Sometimes we get so involved in our daily lives we need to look and see the world around us. I haven't paid much attention to anything outside of inside for awhile. After looking through these pictures, it really makes me want to plan a vacation.

Great post.

I am absolutely stunned when I see pictures like these.

Especially picture 2, how on earth can anybody pin a walkway on to the side of a cliff is beyond me! It's just too scary to think about.

Do you know if the builders had any kind of Western style degrees, training or any kind of equivalent? or is it knowledge passed on?

Cancun Mexico

"Silent Evolution" sculptures (pictured in October) sit in just 30 feet (9 meters) of water, which allows visitors in glass-bottomed boats to also observe the artwork, according to a museum statement.

Boatbound visitors can also see big schools of fish above the statues, Taylor said.

"If there're any sorts of predators or any danger, [the fish] sort of drop below and then hide out in the [statues'] feet area."


Pretty cool. At first I saw the picture of the statue wearing the ball cap, and I was confused as to how recently they were made.
But, it turns out, it was an art project.

Yes, its pretty sh it when living in the Cities isn't it? Especially when you see the stuff that's out there and there's still a load undiscovered.... I'm really hoping to go exploring in far off places one day.... just a shame that in certain areas you can get robbed, killed or taken hostage!!

Breathtaking! Thank you all for these amazing photos!

One of the most lovely places I've only had the pleasure of seeing in photos is Caño Cristales. An amazing river that is colored with bright algae blooms... incredible!

the world is an amazing place so many natural wonders. its amazing the things there are and the mysteries they hold.

I wish people would pay more attention to natural phenomenon and mysterious man made structures, the stories behind them are fascinating. However people are more concerned with money, anger and lust
