The world is full of natural wonders. Nothing is quite so beautiful as nature at its best. These wonders are scattered around the face of our planet, yet many of us don’t take time to make the most of them. Don’t miss out. Get to grips with the natural beauties out there, and book a ticket to see them. Life’s too short not to. Don’t forget to take your camera too. Each one of these sites offer the perfect opportunity for some top photography shots. The list of natural wonders is endless once you get into it. Here are some of the main places you might want to start your list with.
We’re starting small. Meteor showers are one natural wonder that you can see without travelling anywhere. This is a must see at some point in your life. The night sky is a spectacular sight at the best of times, but imagine a sky full of shooting stars. That’s the kind of view you can expect from a meteor shower. Many websites will help you keep track of when the next meteor shower will be happening in a sky near you. It’s best to go somewhere clear to see one of these. Get away from light pollution, and check that it’s going to be a clear night. Then, go along and prepare to be amazed!
NORTHERN LIGHTS (AURORA BOREALIS)
This is another sky related activity, only it’ll take you a little further. See the Aurora in Iceland and you’re sure never to forget. The Northern Lights are an unusual phenomenon which happens when energy is transferred to light. The effect is spectacular, sending a streak of light across the sky like nothing else. The Northern Lights don’t happen all year round, so it’s best to research when is best to see them and get booked up.
GRAND CANYON, AMERICA
The Grand Canyon in Arizona is another site that’s well worth the trip. This canyon of red rock is a breathtaking example of nature at it’s best. The rings on the rock show natural history in a fascinating way. If you’ve seen it in films, you’ll know that the Grand Canyon won’t disappoint. And you can make a holiday out of your visit, too!
BARRIER REEF, AUSTRALIA
The Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland, is the largest living thing on Earth. To give you some idea of the size, you can see the reef from space! You don’t have to travel to space to see this wonder, though. Book yourself for a trip to Australia and arrange a snorkelling session. That way, you’ll be able to get up close and personal. You won’t forget this sight in a hurry. Not to mention that you’ll be able to see some amazing sea life while you’re down there.
This list barely scrapes the surface on the things you could see. Get to grips with the world you live in by making the most of every wonder you can see!
