The Most Beautiful Roads in Europe

For driving lovers, The Grossglockner High Alpine Road in Austria is perhaps the most eye-catching road in Europe, running across the mountains from Bruck in the state of Salzburg to Heiligenblut in Carinthia via Fuscher Törl. The talented nature photographer “Mikołaj Gospodarek” has been travelling to the road every year since 2008 to take pictures of it in the diverse seasons. The photographer has built up an unbelievable series of pictures showing numerous points along the route, which is peppered with mountain peaks, stunning glacier lakes and remote roadside huts. 

These roads are big tourist attraction thanks to its lovely vistas and thousands of visitors pay the toll to drive along it from May to October. The Austrian road with highest mountain was first mooted by a team of Austrian engineers in 1924 when they were ridiculed for their ambitions plans. Almost 11 years later the Grossglockner High Alpine Road was officially opened in August 1935. This road provides a one-of-a-kind journey for those who choose to travel on it. The road is like an ornament of ribbons situated between green mountain pastures, colorful flower meadows, rocky rubble, ice and snow. Because it nestles up against hills, follows the course of the natural ground and fits the mountains like a glove. Whooshing waterfalls, the shrill whistling of marmots and the howling wind in the summit regions make a memorable high alpine soundscape.

Desolate Landscapes You Won't Hard to Believe is on Our Planet

In the first look, you’ll hard to believe these landscapes really exist on earth. And while they don't make a specific good habitat for the majority of life, they do make for some rather amazing examples of our planet's extreme terrain. Just like to take the example of Ethiopia's alien-looking Danakil depression - the hottest place on earth with a year-round average of 34.4C - which is home to sulfurous springs that produce a kaleidoscope of natural colors. The Ethiopia's Erta Ale shield volcano is home to one of the few lakes of everlasting molten lava on Earth. 

Moreover, the Richat Structure, a protuberant circular formation in the largest African Sahara desert that is so idiosyncratic from space, it has become a landmark for Nasa astronauts. Therefore, in the certain light, America's Grand Canyon mountain ranges could be straight out a science-fiction movie, too, as could Australia's vast uninhabited Outback. Here are catalogue of some of fabulous locations around the world you definitely wouldn't want to hang around in, but are more than worthy of some other-worldly admiration. Moreover, The Door to Hell in Turkmenistan is a natural gas chamber that has been burning continually for decades. And the Haughton crater on Canada's Devon Island has actually been used to conduct Mars-related research.

Best Pink Beaches of Around The World

The most liked sandy beaches and turquoise waters form a vision that will motivate travel bug in most people particularly when the weather cools. But though you might have imagined or see white or pale yellow sand, there are a few rare destinations around the globe where the sandy beaches actually have a subtle shade of pink. Therefore, one of the most well-known examples is Pink Sands Beach, a three-mile long stretch of sand on Harbour Island in the Bahamas.
Hence, the wonder is not caused by pollution or a trick of the light but rather, a micro-organism famous as foraminifera. Therefore, in the Bahamas, a rare species of the tiny creatures, Homotrema rubrum, have reddish shells according to the Royal Gazette. So, once they die, they get washed up on to the beaches where they blend in with the sand, pieces of coral and skeletons of other marine organisms to make the famous 'pink sand'.

Superb Photographs Celebrate Autumn's Crimson Leaves, Misty Mornings and Foraging Wildlife

Well, in spite of Britain's tarnished habit for confusing with its schizophrenic weather, it is now officially autumn. Therefore, several are still mourning the summer, plenteously of others regard these months as those that form the best season of the year. Thus, it marks the arrival of fiery crimson leaves, chiller temperatures, clearer stars and finally, the excuse to shroud ourselves in snuggly jumpers and sip tea by the fire. Normally, people like autumn colors, scattering nature colors all over the ground. The autumn which derives its name from Etruscan, a pre-Roman language more than 2,000 years old also brings with it a decent chance to watch Britain's woodland wildlife. Therefore, few birds fly in while others habitually migrate away, numerous critters are out gathering nuts and berries in preparation for hibernation, and for stags, it's time to grow and display their wonderful antlers. Here’re a collection of autumnal photos to welcome in the falling leaves and shorter days.
