The density of the water looked and felt like gold jello. I have never experienced anything like it on my visits to over sixty islands world wide.I never looked away until we touched the shore of our remote resort

Atacama Desert

Walking toward a lake that has no clarity in the Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world, in Northern Chile. The density of minerals in the lake makes it appear as though someone spilled a can of cobalt blue paint into the desert

This image was taken shortly after dawn in a hot air balloon-sailing silently over the magical and eerie formations in Cappadocia,Turkey. This chalk formation on top of a cliff looks like a giant’s foot. Nature is the most talented sculptor.
