Nature's art works

Stock Photography By Tyrrell Mendis

Without the interference of the human animal Nature continually creates beauty year round from what is available to us all: the earth and water, wind and rain, snow and ice, the seasons, and the passage of time.

Image Details for Nature's art works

1. Lady Evelyn Falls on the Kakisa River, Northwest Territories, Canada. Lady Evelyn Falls on the Kakisa River, Northwest Territories, Canada.

2. Giant’s Causeway, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Known locally as the 8th wonder of the world and one of Ireland’s World Heritage Sites, the causeway extends for 6 kilometres along the cliffs of Antrim. It is estimated that more than 40,000 basalt columns extend from cliffs to sea. Most are hexagonal, but some have four, five, seven, eight or even ten sides, and are about 30cm (12”) across. The causeway was formed some 60 million years ago.

3. Birds in flight over Geirangerfjord, Norway. Geiranger is perhaps the ultimate fiord - Norway at its most dramatic. Fine sightseeing and wild nature are compressed here into a relatively small area. The fiord is 16 km (10 mi) long, and 293 metres (960 ft) deep. The mountains along the fjord rise 2,012 m (6,600 ft) above sea level, and from them descend the falls — Seven Sisters, Bridal Veil and Suitor — the best known attractions of the fjor

4. Badlands around Drumheller, Alberta, Canada. Much of this area was an inland sea thousands of years ago, resulting in deposits of layers of sandstone and other sedimentary rocks over time. The sandstone hills and strange formations, here beside Highway 10 east of Drumheller, were created by erosion of wind and water. Although they have survived for so long, they are nevertheless fragile, and the erosion continues.

5. Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiangbishan), Guilin, China. This peak is at the confluence of the Yangjiang River and the Lijiang. The entire hill looks like an elephant drinking with its long trunk. The body of the elephant is a big cave known as Water Moon Cave (Shuiyuedong). The quality of the water here is so good that the famed Guilin wines are made from it.

7. Sulphur deposits on cracked earth around mud pot, Yellowstone National Park, USA. With half of the earth’s geothermal features, more than 10,000, here is the world’s most diverse and intact collection of geysers, hot springs, mudpots, and fumaroles. Over 300 geysers make up two thirds of all those on earth. It has more than 10,000 thermal features comprised of brilliantly coloured hot springs, bubbling mudpots, and steaming fumaroles.

8. Outwash of Grand Prismatic Spring, Midway Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, USA. With half of the earth’s geothermal features, the park has the planet’s most diverse and intact collection of geysers, hot springs, mudpots and fumaroles. Its more than 300 geysers make up two thirds of all those found on earth. Colours are of algae.

9. Ice bridge over Whitemouth River Falls, Manitoba, Canada. Water still flows over the falls but the spray has frozen to form an ice bridge above and an ice curtain across.

10. Rocks covered by a coat of ice, Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The old water of the windswept waves freeze on the colder rocks by the shore to form a coat of ice.

11. Volcanic Rock Formations. Natural geometrical rock formations at the Giant's Causeway, Ireland.

12. Ice Coats. In Hecla Provincial Park the onset of winter is evident when rocks become clothed in ice as the waves of Lake Winnipeg break over them. As winter progresses the entire lake will freeze into a rugged landscape of sharp ridges and treacherous troughs.

13. Snowclad Branches. A snowfall has left a legacy of leafless branches edged with snow on a sunless day in January.

14. Otago Bay, Otago Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand. Seen from the Royal Albatross Colony at Taiaroa Head, the blue water is temporarily changed to rainbow hues by refracted sunlight. Predominantly of volcanic origin, the steep peninsula is very rugged on the Pacific side. The 20-km long shallow-bottomed fiord, Otago Harbour, is home to an abundance of wildlife.

15. Water-worn Rock. The rocks eroded into sculptural forms by the Cleddau River over millions of years are visible along Chasm Walk. The walk begins by the road to Milford Sound in South Island, New Zealand.

16. Silhouette. In a Winnipeg park on a cold winter's day the afternoon sun shines behind the almost symmetrical leafless tree, its rays highlighting the frost and ice on the branches like sparkling lights on a Christmas tree.

17. Minerva Terrace, Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, USA - 1. Limestone in the hot water is constantly deposited to build and decorate terraces. With half of the earth’s geothermal features, here are the planet’s most diverse and intact collection of geysers, hot springs, mudpots and fumaroles.

18. Dead tree and travertine, Mammoth Hot Spings, Yellowstone National Park, USA. More than half the world’s geothermal features are here in the world’s first national park created in 1872. Here are geysers, boiling hot springs, fumaroles and mudpots. Eventually they kill the vegetation.

19. Mountain, Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada - 2. One of the distinctive mountains of the Canadian Rockies in Kananaskis country, Alberta, Canada.

20. Iced Shore. Pieces of thawing ice remain on the edge of a marsh in Fort Whyte Nature Centre, Winnipeg. The Centre is a staging area for migrating Canada geese.
