The desert Namibia has some of the highest and most spectacular sand dunes in the world, in some places reaching to the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, creating one of the most surreal sights …! Blonde or orange color of the sand is in stark contrast with the infinite blue of the sea in a picture that takes your breath away.
The best vantage point is none other than the town Swakopmund, Namibia, the largest coastal city in the country but also one of the nicest places that crowds gather. The origins of the city are German, while stands the old German neighborhood in the city center, making it even more the contrast observed by the visitor to the landscape.
They look like giant flying saucers on top of mountains, but clouds are stationary lens-shaped. The lenticular clouds formed aligning perpendicularly to the direction of the wind at height. This occurs when stable moist air passes over the mountain or mountain range, creating a series of standing waves. Then if the temperature at the top of the waves fall near or below the dew point temperature, the air humidity condenses and thus produce the lenticular clouds, which disappear when the air moves back into the wave. It is not difficult to confuse somebody with … UFO and put legs! But in a second time will be left to enjoy the stunning scenery in the sky!
This sight not see every day! Purple flowers covered a vast desert area in Utah, U.S., creating a stunning natural landscape full of colors, where the drought hit … red!
The purple “bells desert” did their miracle again, blooming through the cracks arid soil, transforming the inhospitable desert on a spectacular flower garden.
The Phacelia campanularia, as is the scientific name of flowers thrive in dry soils and is resistant to aridity and heat. Of course, the sight you see does not happen often, since these rare plants grow such a large area, blanketing the entire desert.
