The Most Popular Tourist Attraction in Croatia Photograph by Jack Brauer All of the Croatian people I have met through my years have always talked about the natural beauty of their homeland. I always nodded in agreement because it struck me that most people shared the same sentiment, regardless of their origin. This says to me, that natural beauty and splendor are everywhere. Our planet is a wonderful place and there are countless gems like the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia, for us to appreciate and preserve. The Plitvice Lakes National Park was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. Photograph by Roman Bonnefoy The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometers (116 sq. miles), whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometers (5 miles). The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colours, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. Photograph by Henning Schroder The Plitvice Lakes had become a major tourist attraction in the late 19th century. Source: Wikipedia Photograph by Roybb95

Lake Como Italy We visited Cernobbio, on the shores of Lake Como for a few days in June 2011. We booked a garden room at Villa d'Este, and due to low occupancy were very fortunate to have been given a lake view room. The Villa d'Este hotel is a destination in its own right, with immaculate gardens, a 500 year history, and beautiful scenery. The lake region offers many picturesque villages that can be easily accessed by boats that run through out the day. Separately, I posted a few older images taken as I was just starting with photography from a trip to Portofino taken in 2000 here. Gardens, Villa d'Este. A floating pool on Lake Como. Gardens and portions of Villa d'Este. Two boats can be stored under the villa. Nearby town of Cernobbio. A view of Villa d'Este and Cernobbio. Waterfront breakfast on Lake Como, with its wonderful early morning lighting. A village along the shores of Lake Como. Another picturesque village along Lake Como's shore. The town of Bellagio. Leaving Bellagio. Lobby, Villa d'Este.

Tom Robinson Travel Photography: I'm going to be a dad! 25 Stunning Entries for National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2012 The 24th annual National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest is over and the judges are about to announce the winners. Over 12,000 amazing images were submitted from all over the world in these four categories: Travel Portraits; Outdoor Scenes; Sense of Place; and Spontaneous Moments. National Geographic will announce the winners next month and meanwhile we are sharing 25 of our favorite entries. When I look at these spectacular photos I start to think that maybe my photography teacher was wrong after all. “Take point-and-shoot camera instead – it’s either a holiday or you are working,” he said. If these travelers would have followed this advice, I wouldn’t be sharing these breathtaking pictures today. What about you?

32 Pictures To Help You Appreciate The Awesomeness Of Nature October 12, 2010 | 136 Comments » | Topics: Awesome, Nature Hot Stories From Around The Web Other Awesome Stories Wind Farms Create Their Own Clouds Wind farms receive a lot of praise in the fight against climate change. Along with solar, they're often pitched as our last hope for energy independence. Ironically, not only do they "fight" climate change but they also create micro-climates . Like giant egg mixers, off shore wind farms blend warm sea air with the cooler air above. Of course, all it takes is a windy day to clear the cloud cover. Studies has shown that large wind farms can even change weather patterns. However, researchers "acknowledged the hypothetical wind farm was far larger than anything humans are likely to build," but if Department of Energy projections for wind farming are met by 2030, "it could probably have an effect," says James McCaa of 3Tier, Inc. , a renewable energy forecasting company based in Seattle.
