阿特拉尼,阿马尔菲海岸,意大利

阿特拉尼位于意大利西南部的阿马尔菲海岸,房屋的红色粘土屋顶在阳下非常引人注目。阿特拉尼是意大利最小的城镇之一,镇上只有800居民。这个传统渔村也是阿马尔菲海岸世界文化遗产的一部分。这里保留了原有的建筑特色,是一个完美的地中海度假胜地。游客可以在这里沐浴阳光,在海滨咖啡馆里品尝当地海鲜。

Atrani, Amalfi Coast, Italy

With its red clay roofs above the spangled sea, Atrani shines in the sun on the Amalfi Coast in southwest Italy. Just 800 people get to call Atrani home, while the rest of us can just hope to visit one of the smallest towns in Italy and walk its intricately built roads and admire the small houses perched above the waiting beach. The traditional fishing village is part of the Costiera Amalfitana UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it has kept its traditional characteristics alive. It is a perfect Mediterranean getaway to soak up the sun and enjoy local seafood at a waterfront cafe.

穿过亚马孙雨林中的这座吊桥,意味着你要依靠这些树木作为支撑。同样,地球生物的生存也依赖于亚马孙雨林的这些树木。亚马孙流域储存的碳是全球化石燃料年排放量的10倍以上,这里还是地球上10%已知物种的家园。亚马孙是世界上流域最广、流量最大的河流,其河流入海流量占全球的20%。从安第斯山脉到大西洋,亚马孙河流经了八个国家。今天的照片拍摄于秘鲁的坦博帕塔国家保护区,这里是巨型角雕、金刚鹦鹉、美洲虎、水豚、树懒和巨型水獭的家园。

Tambopata National Reserve, Peru

To cross this suspension bridge in the canopy of the Amazon rainforest means depending on the trees of the forest to support you. Similarly, the survival of life on Earth depends on the trees of the Amazon forest. Amazonia stores more carbon than 10 times the annual global emissions from fossil fuel and supports approximately 10% of all known animal and plant species on Earth. The Amazon River discharges more water than any other river on earth, and almost 20% of all water that flows into the ocean from rivers travels through the Amazon River basin. While almost two thirds of the Amazon lie in Brazil, it stretches across seven other countries, from the Andes Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean. This section of canopy is in Peru's Tambopata National Reserve, home to giant harpy eagles, macaws, jaguars, capybaras, sloths, and giant otters.

冬天的布莱斯峡谷石林 Bryce Canyon hoodoos in winter

布莱斯峡谷国家公园

当太阳在布莱斯峡谷升起时,白皑皑的橙红色岩石闪闪发。这些修长高耸的岩石被称为石林,而布莱斯峡谷国家公园正是因为拥有地球上密度最高的石林而闻名。这些石林的下层是松软的沉积岩,上面则覆盖着一层更为坚硬的石盖。犹他天的霜会侵蚀石盖,最终暴露出底下更易被侵蚀的岩石。值得庆幸的是,这些石林现在还屹立不倒,让我们可以在公园成立100周年之时欣赏大自然的鬼斧神工。

Bryce Canyon National Park turns 100

As the sun rises on Bryce Canyon, its snowcapped red-orange rock formations start to glow. These slender, towering rocks are called hoodoos, and Bryce Canyon National Park is remarkable for having the highest concentration of hoodoos anywhere on Earth. The hoodoos here have a soft base of sedimentary rock with a cap of more solid stone on top. The snow and frost of the Utah winter will eventually erode the support of the cap, causing it to fall and expose the remaining rock to easier erosion. Thankfully these formations are standing now, allowing us to take in their natural majesty as the park celebrates its 100th anniversary.

这个景色不是很迷人吗? Isn't this view mesmerizing?

巴黎的灯光

随着暮色的消逝,巴黎城亮了起来。街道和建筑物沐浴在阳中,还有一些宏伟的纪念碑,如荣军院,如今天的照片所示。在国王路易十四统治期间,他要求在整个城市安装街灯,这样警察就可以很容易地抓住违法者,确保他们不会躲在黑暗的小巷里。当地人还被要求在窗户上挂起灯笼、油灯和蜡烛。

今天,光之城是寻求博物馆、美食和浪漫环境的旅行者的理想目的地。这座城市有很多历史可以提供,包括花园、纪念碑、地下墓穴等,还有很多关于丰富的法国和巴黎文化的籍。

The lights of Paris

As twilight fades, the city of Paris lights up. Streets and buildings are bathed in light as well as grand monuments such as the Dôme des Invalides, seen in today's image. During his reign, King Louis XIV asked for streetlights to be erected throughout the city so that the police could catch lawbreakers easily, ensuring no dark alleys where they could hide. The locals were also asked to put up lanterns, and oil lamps, and lit candles on their windows.

Today, the City of Light is a dream destination for travelers who seek out museums, cuisine, and a romantic setting. The city has a lot of history to offer in the form of gardens, monuments, catacombs, and more, with volumes to be learned about the rich French and Parisian culture.

宁静的

斯诺登尼亚国家公园,威尔士

今天照片中展示的宁静山谷坐落在北威尔士格的斯诺登尼亚国家公园。克罗伊索(Croesor)峡谷曾经是热闹非凡的采石场,专门生产用于建造屋顶及地板的石板。如今这里没有了采石的喧嚣,只有长满苔藓的石墙、潺潺的溪流、羊群啃过的田野和台阶,还有穿过这里前往莫尔温尼恩(Moelwynion)山脉的徒步者。

克罗伊索峡谷位于克尼希特(Cnicht)山麓,从西南方向看,其轮廓犹如一座金字塔,因此克尼希特被誉为“威尔士的马特洪峰”。克尼希特山虽然并不高,只有689米,但站在山顶,西可远眺海岸美景,北可遥望斯诺登山,你会看到令人震撼的风景。

在这里,徒步者可能会发现自己正沿着矿工的足迹,绕过废弃的采石场,路过已经变成废墟的矿工家。克罗伊索峡谷是83英里长的斯诺登尼亚石板道的一部分,这条石板道也记录了这里曾是石板生产中心的那段历史。

Itaimbezinho峡谷,巴西

Itaimbezinho

峡谷是南里奥格兰德州最著名的峡谷。它是巴西自然奇观之一,位于南坎巴拉市,它是巴西南坎巴拉市的自然奇观之一,位于阿帕拉多斯达塞拉国家公园内。Itaimbezinho峡谷两侧的峭壁非常直,如刀切一般。Itaimbezinho峡谷名字便得名于峭壁的特征,在图皮瓜拉尼语中:"ita"的意思是石头,"aimbé"的意思是切割和锋利。

Itaimbezinho canyon, Brazil

The Itaimbezinho Canyon is the most famous canyon in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. It is one of the natural wonders of Brazil in the city of Cambará do Sul, located in the Aparados da Serra National Park. Itaimbezinho has extremely straight walls that give the impression of having been cut with a knife. This characteristic gave rise to the name, in Tupi Guarani: "ita" means stone, and "aimbé" means cutting and sharp. The region of the canyons was also the habitat of the Indians and has also been the scene of several soap operas and miniseries.

海洋之王 King of the ocean

毛伊鲸鱼节

在座头鲸巨大体型的衬托之下,你会觉得自己是如此的渺小。成年座头鲸体长达46-56英尺以上,是地球上最大的哺乳动物之一。夏威夷毛伊岛每年都会举办鲸鱼节,游客们可以参加观鲸活动,近距离接触这些美丽的庞然大物。座头鲸是须鲸的一种,以擅长唱歌而闻名,它们嘹亮优美的歌声甚至可以在水中传到“千里之外”。有趣的是,每个鲸鱼群都有自己的鲸歌,并且只有雄性鲸鱼才唱歌。此外,鲸鱼还是马的远亲,它们是从同一个祖先进化而来。

Humpback whales in Maui, Hawaii

If you ever want to feel insignificant, just think about the sheer size of a humpback whale. With adults growing up to more than 46-56 feet, humpback whales are one of the biggest mammals on Earth. In Hawaii, you can get the opportunity to go on a whale-watching tour during the Maui Whale Festival and get up close with these giant, beautiful creatures. A species of baleen whale, humpback whales are known for their long elaborate songs, which travel far distances through the waters. Each whale population has its own song, and interestingly, it is only the males that sing. Also, did you know that whales are distant relatives of hippos? Both species evolved from a common ancestor.

这个悬崖怎么着火了? Why is this cliffside ablaze?

马尾瀑布,约塞米蒂国家公园加利福尼亚

在约塞米蒂国家公园的埃尔卡皮坦东侧,当所有自然条件齐备,马尾瀑布就像火一样“燃烧”起来。这种现象只有在2月的几周时间里可以看到,前提是天气晴朗,水或雨水形成瀑布,并且照条件恰到好处。“火瀑布”只会持续大约10分钟,届时,观景区会人潮涌动。希望今年的游客能有幸看到这一神奇的自然景观。

Horsetail Fall, Yosemite National Park, California

When nature converges in rare and glorious fashion on the east side of the rock formation known as El Capitan, Horsetail Fall is illuminated as if on fire. This phenomenon can only be seen for a couple of weeks in February if there is a clear sky, enough water flowing from snowmelt or rain, and perfect timing. This 'firefall' only lasts for around 10 minutes and vantage points can be crowded. Horsetail Fall and El Capitan are part of Yosemite National Park, the second-oldest national park in the US. We hope this year's visitors are fortunate enough to see this magical display.

月亮谷,智利

月亮谷位于智利北部的阿塔卡马沙漠,有着令人惊叹的美景。1982年,月亮谷被列为自然保护区,这是因为它拥有极吸引人的、未受破坏的原生环境和奇特的月球地形。关于月亮谷还有一个有趣的知识,那就是这片沙漠已经很多年未下过一滴雨了。

Achaches lookout, Valley of the Moon, Chile

El Valle de la Luna (Valley of the Moon) is located in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile. It has the most breathtaking view from the Achaches lookout. In 1982, Moon valley was declared a nature sanctuary for its stunning, untouched habitat and its peculiar lunar-like terrain. An interesting fact about the Valley of the Moon is that the desert hasn't received a single drop of rain in countless years.
