"Ridiculously Beautiful Places" (photography)


Beauty lies in nature's intricate phenomenons. I recently watched a 1997 documentary, "Microcosmos" which looks at the hidden worlds of insects and their life cycle. The documentary takes place in a ordinary meadow of France. 
Life itself is visually spectacular, like watching your kids grow older. Sometimes you're lucky to experience nature's striking and visually appealing like these Beautiful places of the world. See below.
From Here Are 25 Ridiculously Beautiful Places You’d Rather Be Having Adventures In Right Now, I have featured the best pictures from the article. 
The pictures below look like a oil painting, a portrait of Earth.

Baobab trees in Morondava, Madagascar

The trees in this photo look like large statues the artist sculpted into Pillars.

Volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland

The wispy appearance of the black smoke looks like dry brush strokes across the canvas.

The Giant’s Causeway – an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland

The geometric columns are natural sculptures, stacked and fashioned like a pyramid. 


Gigantic dune of Namibia 

This picture especially looks like a painting with the use of contrasting colors. The dividing line moves your eyes down towards the tree.

Rainbow at Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite National Park

Storm in the distance of False Kiva in Canyonlands, Utah
Like looking through an eye; you are the cave. The cosmological space is like the whites of your eyes while the Storm in the distance is your Pupil. This photo reminds me of a Surrealist painting, for example the ones where Salvador Dali uses landscapes to create shapes of body parts.
 
Mysterious Hallway, a thick grove of poplar trees in northern Oregon

With uniformity and visually appealing patterns, here is another landscape having an artistic charm. 

Turquoise ice on Northern Lake Baikal, Russia

The vibrant colors of the ice look like crystals or lights illuminating from another world. I'm not fond of snowy landscapes, but this photo reminds me of paintings of fantastical under worlds, like Atlantis.
 

Glow worm cave in Waitamo, New Zealand
The glowing worms acts like floating lights illuminating the cave. 
 

Maroon Bells, Aspen, Colorado

There are no words to describe this artistic landscape. 
The mountains overlap the starry sky like a picture collage.
