You may have seen my series "Natures Beauty" so you have maybe already recognized that I am a lover of nature. Its a huge influence on my trips that I take because I want to visit places which aren´t touched by human beings if possible. Raw nature is what I love the most and where I feel completely free. Anyway, I have recently seen a few articles about natural phenomena and really want to share some of these informations with you...
The nature is very magical for me. It teaches you to be truly yourself. If you take a walk in mothers nature, you´re 100% on your own. You need to make decisions and nobody else is responsible for that. There are some things in life which have no logical explanation and you have to trust your gut feeling. You need to believe in yourself and you will experience the greatest freedom which you will ever feel. One thing that nature teaches you is to live in the moment. I believe it must be a great feeling to be at a place without wifi, without a telephone and no technology. (Of course just for a period of time) The sun will wake you up and the sunset tells you when the day is over. You need to live in the moment without thinking about the future or the past. There will be hard days which you do not want to experience a second time but at the end of the day you are able to fly back home, eat some good food and have memories for life! I could go on and on but this post is about natural phenomena and not about what you can learn from mothers nature...
The endless wave
The endless wave occurs twice a year in Brazil when the Atlantic pushes huge quantities of water into the mouth of the Amazon River. The wave could reach up to 500km inside the country until it´s getting slower...
By the combustion of sulfur-containing gases at extremely high temperatures, this volcano in Indonesia provides blue-hot lava.
The Natron Lake in Tanzania
This one is actually really crazy and I didn´t know that something like that even exist. Sodium carbonate and salt in the water lead to a calcification on the body of the animals, which prevents their decay.
These eucalyptus trees look like they have been painted but its actually all natural. As the tree slowly ages, it changes from bright green to darker green. After that follows a blue-ish to purple-ish color and then pink and orange. Finally the color become a brown-ish / chestnut color right before exfoliation.
Luminous water in the Maldives
Responsible for this glow in the water is something called "Phytoplankton".
Trees full of spiderwebs
As a result of the flood in Pakistan, the spiders are forced to save themselves on the trees, where they naturally work on their nets. This looks so crazy, it starts to prickle under my skin when I look at those pictures...
I will stop here because I have many more natural phenomena to share with you and this was just Part I. I hope you find this interesting just like I did.
The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great, and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich, precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment. - Johannes Kepler
