The most beautiful landscapes from around the world

20140530-162120-58880463.jpg

This week’s #Frifotos theme on Twitter is the subject of landscapes. And even though I’ve just began traveling, I’ve had the opportunity to gaze upon some absolutely jaw dropping scenery from North America to Canada, Haiti to Thailand, and Cambodia. And now, as I begin traveling through Europe, I have finally been able to take in some landscapes in Italy as well.

Here are my picks, in no certain order, from my own photos of the most beautiful landscapes from around the world that I have visited.

CAMBODIA

UNITED STATES

salton-sea-california

 

Everything was wiped away in this once-upon-a-time resort getaway — the Salton Sea was created by man, but nature denied the reward. It is the contrast to an era long gone; the silence, the desolation, the salt-crusted land and inhabitable lake, the dead fish, the seagulls squawking, and the skeletons of houses leftover that makes this oddly beautiful in its demise.

Weekly Photo: Angkor Wat like you’ve never seen before!

Nearly everyone in the world that I know of has seen some sort of photo of the famous 12th century temple complex known as Angkor Wat. The largest religious complex in the world, it is indeed a fascinating place to visit.

But at the same time, it is a place thousands of people visit and photograph.

So, while I was getting to have history-gasms touching the ancient building and exploring, I also decided that I wanted to bring you there as well. In the main complex in Angkor Wat, the second story is where the real fascination lie. On that floor it even seemed like we were on the bottom level, and most tourists couldn’t make it up the stairs which made it much less crowded.

So, to immerse you, I recorded a photo bubble so you can explore the entire surroundings in panoramic glory. Enjoy!
