Capturing the Unseen: A Photographer’s Guide to Stunning Natural Wonders Around the Globe

If there’s one thing that cannot be denied is the fact that our beautiful planet Earth is loaded with mesmerizing natural wonders that manage to sweep everyone off their feet as soon as they lay their eyes on them.

All these wonders showcase how omnipotent nature is and that it is capable of creating things that constantly leave all of us in awe. And undoubtedly, every single one of them is worth exploring.

Now, the question is, where to start first, since there are so many of them? Well, it all depends on what you’re interested in. Today, we will enumerate the ones that are our personal favorites, so let’s check them out together!

For The Brave Ones – Paricutin, Mexico

This place, without a doubt isn’t for everyone, particularly for scaredy-cats. If you are far from it, yet you would like to explore a place that can be defined as potentially dangerous, then you should definitely give this one a chance.

So what do we know about it? Namely, this volcano erupted abruptly, eighty years ago, and covered a huge area under ashes and lava, completely annihilating San Juan Parangaricutiro, and Paricutin, which represent two villages.

What shocked us was the fact that before this strange event, there wasn’t any volcano, which means that people have witnessed a volcano’s birth for the first time in human history. For the time being, this volcano is not active.

If you would like to see this miracle in person, then you can do so from a helicopter, and you will get the opportunity to see the abandoned Juan Parangaricutiro’s church, and that’s practically it. Everything else is wiped out.

Will You See The Santa At The North Pole?

Well, to be honest, that’s highly unlikely, however, that doesn’t mean that this part of the world isn’t worth the visit. On the contrary. In fact, you will get the chance to see one of the most breathtaking natural wonders ever.

Even though it is the earth’s coolest place (and we do mean it literally), the North Pole is filled with sensational landscapes, along with wonderful wildlife, history, and culture. Therefore, if all of this sounds inviting to you, then you should opt for a cruise to the North Pole so you can see with your own eyes how marvelous it is. If you’re looking to capture some of the most amazing moments of wildlife, then you’ll be able to do it precisely in this part of the universe.

We talked to a lot of people who have visited the North Pole at some point, and all of them told us that it has managed to exceed all their expectations. Thereby, you should definitely add it to your bucket list right now!

Massive Sahara 

Can you imagine that there’s a desert out there, that’s practically as big as the United States? Yes, you read that right. We are referring to the Sahara, of course, which is the world’s biggest hot desert, that covers almost the entire Northern Africa. 

Now, there’s a common misconception that this desert mostly consists of huge sand and dunes (also known as ergs), but that’s actually not the case. In fact, it mostly contains hard, rocky plateaus and has small amounts of sand.  

If you do not mind the drought, then you’ll absolutely enjoy this wondrous desert. In case you didn’t know, the rain “visits” it very rarely, approximately once or twice every few years, which means that you won’t experience too much rain even during the wettest days.

We Cannot Forget To Mention The Niagara Falls

In comparison to all the aforementioned places, this one doesn’t require a thorough introduction, due to the fact that it’s one of the most famous spots in the world, and is visited by millions and millions of travelers across the globe.

But still, we still had to mention it, in case some of you have forgotten about it. What we generally love about Niagara Falls is the fact that every time is the perfect time to cast your eyes on them.

You can do it now, when the summer is still here, or you can wait for colder months. Whatever suits you most. If you decide to visit it, you’ll have two options at your disposal. You can either have a boat ride or see it from the viewing platform. Whatever you pick, we are one hundred percent sure that you’ll enjoy this magnificent view.

Beautiful Grand Canyon

Those of you who are having second thoughts about visiting this place, don’t. Instead of thinking twice about if you should pack your bags and see them, just go. We promise you, you won’t regret it. But if you decide to do it, do it properly.

We heard so many times that tourists have a tendency to just take some pictures, purchase a couple of souvenirs, and just go. But that’s not how you should explore this beauty. You have to be much more thorough than that. 

After all, Grand Canyon has so much to offer, starting from the Grand Canyon Village, (that’s situated near the national’s park most famous south entrance), to Mather Point (the first thing you’ll notice as soon as you step into the Grand Canyon), Colorado River, and many other attractions.

This canyon is one of the most visited places in the United States, attracting over six million people each year. Oh, and did you know that it has its own weather? How awesome is that?

Last, But Surely Not Least – Albanian Riviera 

Now, this suggestion may not be as popular as the ones that we previously mentioned, however, we decided to bring it up because it’s definitely worth your time, especially if you are into heavenly sandy beaches and clear turquoise water. 

That’s exactly how we imagine paradise to look like. Unfortunately, this wonderful region is not as famous as some others, but if you would like to experience unspoiled nature and beautiful sea, then this must be your next stop.

To be frank, there isn’t enough room to discuss all the natural wonders that our splendid world has to offer. We tried to stick to the ones that we personally adore, and we honestly hope you’ll love them!
