Light and color wonders of the nature

Traveling the world opens your eyes in many aspects. However the more you spend time at the nature the more you believe that there must have been a higher creative mind behind it all, someone that had come up with this great project called Universe. Becoming an adult often takes away the ability to believe in miracles and marvel the beauty around us, but observing wildlife and encountering places of amazing artistic beauty or seeing natural phenomena you could have not even imagine existed makes you become a dreamer again.

Escape the darkness of winter and go light and color natural wonders’ hunting! Here are my top five treasures.

Lunar and circular rainbows

1) Did you know, that rainbow is not always produced by the sunlight and does not always have a form of an arch?

Go to Victoria Falls, that are shared between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe, to marvel a lunar and a circular rainbows!

Walking over a bridge above the splashing water of the waterfall catch you luck and see a huge colorful ring laying on a grass.

It is so huge, that you cannot feet it into your photo shot, but you do not care, because it is absolutely miraculous and breathtaking, just take your moment and smile of joy of existence.

If you are there during the full moon, sneak out of the drinking party, and go back to the National park, because the chances are you will be the only one among all your friends who will have seen or known about a lunar rainbow. At your arrival back to the park you will be directed to that one spot where to your big surprise you will find a shadowy rainbow created by mood light just hanging there over the falling water.

Waitomo caves

2) How it is to see thousands of stars, being in a dark closed up cave? Go to the North island of New Zealand and find your way to the Waitomo caves. First you might not understand what it is so special about this cave, dark and slightly moistures, just another cave. But be patient, as soon as the flashlights are off and your eyes get used to darkness you will see a sea of blue stars. These are glowworms,or scientifically Arachnocampa luminosa. You will admire their luminescent light while silently gliding in a little boat along the underground river to the starry wonderland of the Glowworm Grotto and listening to the sound of a waterfall inside the cave.

The entrance is 49 NZ dollars.

Northern lights (Aurora borealis)

3) You might feel like you are seeing a dream, the dark night sky will be brightened up by the light that you will first not recognised as real, until it starts moving and dancing above you and blooming with gentle green colour or if you are lucky you get it multi-coloured. You will almost forget about being cold watching Aurora borealis. Your best chances to see it are from September to April in the North of Finland, Sweden, Island and Canada. There are also online services, where you can subscribe to a aurora alert, that notifies you when the magnetic activity is high and the chances to see the Northern light are the highest.

Erupting volcano

4) It is contradicting the survival instinct, but if you get a chance to see an erupting volcano from a safe distance you might feel a sensation of peace, almost like being in a trance. The orange lava is spilling over the edges of the crater and is floating down lighting up the darkness around. You are far, but you can almost feel its heat. It is hypnotising and you cannot take your eyes away. How many people had a privilege to see it and not being under life threat? I saw mine in Antigua, Guatemala, when the volcano Fuego had woken up. Where will be yours, Hawaii, Iceland or Antarctica?
Biofluorescent phytoplankton

5) Have you ever felt as a magician or a fairy? A few movements in the water and your body starts shining with a magic blue sparkling light, each step you take leaves the same blue sparkly print on the sand. Thanks to the bio fluorescent phytoplankton you can feel like swimming or walking in an imaginary world. Oh, and if it is a season for that, you should definitely catch a blue sparkly wave on your windsurfing board, it looks awesome. The best chances to see this phenomenon places like Bio luminescent Bay in Puerto Rico, Luminous Lagoon in Jamaica, Maldives or some beaches in the US, Australia and New Zealand.


Embrace the darkness and let the light brighten your grown up life.
