Hugo Martin from the Los Angeles Times said:

“You can’t call yourself a landscape photographer if you haven’t snapped a photo or two of the Wave.”

Permit is needed to visit this site and only 20 people are allowed to visit The Wave each day.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management limits access to protect The Wave’s delicate red sandstone formation and to prevent overcrowding at the designated wilderness site in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in St. George, Arizona.

Travis Burke wrote:

 “But there is more to these canyons than this light beam, especially if you venture to the Lower Antelope Canyon, which isn’t as widely travelled but still boasts the same sensuous colours and unique textures.”

How I wish to go there and to be able to snap photos of the amazing natural phenomena like Travis Burke did.

As I always wrote, I really love the nature especially when they are beautiful.

At the end of May 2013,  Jupiter, Venus and Mercury form a celestial triangle in the night sky.

The three planets shine together in a triangle formation low in the western sky in a planetary meet-up known as a conjunction.

We can even see them with naked eyes if the sky is clear and the place is not too bright.

This cosmic show is so special spectacular because it includes the three brightest planets visible in the May night sky.

Venus is the brightest of the trio, with Jupiter a close second and Mercury coming in third.

Flickr photographers snapped awesome photos of this very rare and special event.

Photos Of August 18, 2011 Dust Storm Around Phoenix, Arizona

22 08 2011

A giant wall of dust hit Metropolitan Phoenix  for the third time within the last six weeks.

The dust storm, known as a haboob, was 1,000 feet high and traveled at least 50 miles into metro Phoenix and neighboring Pinal County on Thursday evening.

Weather experts said such huge dust storms only happen in Arizona, Africa’s Sahara desert and parts of the Middle East.

Flights were delayed and some people were without electricity because of the dust storm.

Homes were damaged, roofs were torn off businesses, trees landed on top of homes and a junior high school has part of its roof missing in the city of Eloy, in Pinal County.

Pollution levels was very high during dust storms and caused breathing problems for people with asthma and other similar conditions.
