The world we live in is beautiful. Naturally. There are sights we see in our everyday life that tell us that indeed the world is beautiful. It is we who either fail to see it or maybe we have polluted its beauty. Nothing’s pristine anymore. We have inhabited this earth for more than a few billion years. In these billion years, we have done enough to exploit it. Yet, there are places that remain untouched by humankind’s selfish nature.
These places are so colorful, as it is. Capturing them for everyone to enjoy was a brilliant idea, especially since every one of us may be able to visit them personally. But we know that they exist, on this very earth.
Breathtaking, splendid, gorgeous, say whatever you want to.
