Stunning Nature Photos

The nature of our Earth is a true marvel. No other planet has such a variety of life and vegetation, and the immense vastness of our oceans, rivers, jungles, and forests, is home to stunning sceneries and natural phenomenons that are unrivaled in the universe. From the waterfalls in Iceland to the Cathedral beach in Spain, the Earth has a lot to show you!

Forests are stunning pieces of our nature, and there is hardly a time when they don’t look utterly breathtaking. Winter forests have a certain magic about them, as snow covers the trees, and ice spreads all over the ground. This forest appears as if straight from a fairytale, and the sunrise only makes it that more arresting.

Pink salt lakes are something South Australia is quite abundant in. Travelers from all over the world come to see the beauty with their own eyes and marvel at the natural phenomenon. The strawberry milkshake colored lakes are entirely natural and form due to the presence of certain algae and bacteria.

The unique rice fields peppering the territory of the Indonesian island of Bali are a stunning feature of the island. They were created because the farming conditions in the region were rather unfavorable, so the farmers had to develop a strategy to tackle the problem of the steep hills. Building sloping rice terraces was the answer!

Birds And The Waves, Atlantic Ocean

The Atlantic ocean is a mighty beast, and it is stunningly beautiful. The diversity of aquatic life within it is rivaled by the variety which flies above it, and these birds are one of the many species gracing the wavy waters. The wildness of the choppy waves is wonderful and the crystal clear water reflects the sunset light like no other.

Iceland has no shortage of stunning natural phenomenons, and it is also home to many of the world’s most impressive waterfalls. The Haifoss waterfall is the third highest on the island, and is situated on the Fossá river, which forms into Iceland’s longest river down the stream!

Canyons are also something Iceland is plentiful in. The Fjadrargljufur Canyon was created by erosion over millions of years, as the water from the glaciers came streaming down. The Canyon is 328 feet deep and around 1 ½ mile long, and it is one of the most visited natural places on Island.

The Dolomite Alps are as vast as they are beautiful. The Seiser valley is particularly impressive with its rolling hills and high peaks, offering sceneries for days. Perfect for any season, the Seiser valley is one of the most pristine pieces of the Alps in the whole of Europe!

The tourist destination which attracts thousands of visitors each year- Phang Nga bay in Thailand, is popular for a reason. The stunning bay is geologically fascinating, created out of hundreds of little islands sticking out from the water. The lushness and greenery of the region only add to the whole experience of natural beauty!

Tulip Fields, Holland

If Holland is known for something, it is its beautiful tulip fields which color the countryside each year. Tourists stream into the country every season to watch the flowers bloom and turn the whole landscape into a vibrant painting-like picture. One can come to cycle through these tulip fields and immerse oneself in the extraordinary.

The Cathedrals beach in Spain’s Galician coast has nothing to do with religion. The cathedral-like shapes have been created entirely by nature, and are a testament to the power erosion, water, wind, and natural forces possess. The beach is just over a mile long and disappears when high tide hits.

Mesocyclone Storm, USA

Coming face to face with a storm like this must be scary, but in many ways, it is also impressive and humbling. The mesocyclone storms are vortexes in the air about 2-10 miles in diameter, and they often bring severe thunderstorms with them. These cyclones are not something a human wants to encounter, but they certainly are a natural phenomenon to admire.

Sequoia National Park, USA

Standing in a giant sequoia forest makes any human feel minute in comparison! These giant and majestic trees have been standing strong for decades, and are between 4,000 and 8,000 feet tall. The giant sequoias only grow in the Sierra Nevada in California, and they are utterly mesmerizing. 

Skogafoss Waterfall, Iceland

Another Icelandic waterfall which deserves a mention. The Skogafoss waterfall is the largest on the island with a drop of almost 200 feet, and it creates a spray that often not only showers all the visitors but also hosts amazing rainbows. Just another stunning natural sight of Iceland!

Rainbow Above The River, USA

Rainbows are some of the most colorful and bizarre phenomenons in our nature, and when they form a perfect half-circle, one can not help but marvel at the perfect beauty of this planet. This rainbow over the Columbia River valleys and hills is a beautiful reminder of the infinite creativity of the Earth.

The Mekong river of Laos has many small waterfall formations, but none more impressive than the Khone Phapheng waterfall. During the rainy season, the river floods, and the waterfalls get especially wild. Millions of gallons of water crash on top of rocks and create stunning scenery for anyone who is lucky enough to witness it.

No one corner of the earth is the same as another! We have so much natural diversity on our planet that it would be virtually impossible to see and experience all that our nature has to offer. Taking time to appreciate the nature around us however, is the little we can do on a daily basis to show our gratitude for the beauty we get to live in!
