Our beautiful Earth, the only home we have, provides us with food, air, water and land. Nature is an integral part of our wellbeing. We need to embrace the environment and nurture it as our own self.
Land Of Terror – No Water. No vegetation. No oases. Known as the “Land of Terror,” the Tanezrouft Basin in Algeria is one of the most desolate parts of the Sahara Desert. Sand dunes, which appear in yellow, streak down the left side of the image, and sandstone formations carved by relentless wind erosion make concentric loops, much like the grain seen in a piece of wood.
Nature’s Patterns – The biologically complex conditions of mangroves are shown in dark green along the fingers of the Ord River in Australia. Yellow, orange, and blue represent the impressive flow patterns of sediment and nutrients in this tropical estuary. The bright spot at the lower left is an area of mudflats, which is home to saltwater crocodiles.
