Fantastic Foto Friday: Mobius Arch, California, USA

California was my home for close to 20 years and has magnificent natural beauty, from Lake Tahoe to Yosemite or my favorite Road Trip on Highway 1. 
One you might have seen in Hollywood movies, but probably not heard much about, is the Mobius Arch in the Alabama Hills, part of the Sierra Nevada in California! You have to earn this sight with a hike in the heat, but it is an impressive view!
Robin took this stunning photo that captures the natural beauty of California– and he has many more, equally captivating photos on Robin’s Photo Site. You can view them, order photos or create photo products on the site!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Death Valley, USA

Death Valley, USA

Death Valley is one of the hottest places on Earth, with an unbelievable temperature of 134F (56.7C) measured there. Located on the border of Nevada and California in the Western United States of America, it also has the lowest point at 86m below sea level. It earned its name during the Gold Rush, but neither the temperatures nor the name have kept countless visitors from exploring this National Park!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Sunrise over Lake Tahoe, California

Lake Tahoe is one of my favorite destinations in Northern California for a summer getaway or a ski trip in winter! Robin got up very early to catch this great photo of the sun rising over Lake Tahoe on a trip to the North Shore during winter! If a photo like this doesn’t make you want to visit Lake Tahoe, I don’t know what will – it’s a beautiful nature destination and a great place to relax or have fun skiing or snowboarding!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Etosha National Park, Namibia

What makes Etosha National Park so unique is that the wildlife watching is focused on the water holes the animals come to in this very dry park, so you can sit quietly and watch the animals, without having to rush around in a jeep like on other safaris. And it’s especially beautiful and peaceful at sunset – it’s a sight I’ll never forget!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Crocodiles in Chobe National Park, Botswana

Wildlife watching is fascinating in Africa. What sets Chobe National Park in Botswana apart from other parks is the chance to see wildlife from a boat, a very different and more relaxing experience than rushing around in a Land Cruiser! And it gives you a comfortable distance when spotting huge crocodiles like this!
