@saab,
I have experiences with MANY TRAVEL GUIDES ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

I think I know what I'm talking about when it comes to group or solo travel.

@vonny,
About a week ago I was talking with a friend about our parent´s/grandparent´s generations, who could not travel as much as we can.
They had a lot of travel books to read and learn about other countries. Sometimes I have the feeling they knew more than we do. They had the long winter evenings to learn, no TV.
Travel in itsself is not educational - it is how you travel and good travelling can also be done in your own easychair.

@cicerone imposter,
C.I.'s prickly reply:
Quote:
But to see amazing landscapes of this world first hand are more rewarding than pictures.


Of course it is C.I. Do you want us to envy you for being comfortably retired with enough kaching to flit around the world taking first hand pictures?
I'm sure we all do envy you.
But for those of us stuck in a hum-drum existence this thread is a wonderful opportunity to see things second hand that we can't see live.

After all, this thread is named "10 Of The Best : Nature Photographs"
Not
"10 Of The Best Photographs That I Have Taken"

Hey! That would be a great thread for you to start!

@panzade,
I also said I've been enjoying the photographs, and I have also posted some of mine.

I also have a travel blog with pictures, and over 34,000 people from around the world have viewed them.

I understand that not everyone is able to travel as much as I have; I'm not that dense or insensitive.

I also have sent hard copies of pictures to many who have requested them.

My post,

holds true whether you wish to deem it "prickly." That's the reason people travel. Are we all "prickly?"

Generation globetrotters: Average child will have travelled 13,500 miles to visit 11 countries by the age of 16

Bali, Zambia and Australia now popular family holiday destinations
Today's children more likely to have been to Spain than to Devon
Average child will sample 77 foreign dishes by time they reach 16
This goes for British children,

I believe that to understand a foreign country you should know your own rather well.
If you just go to a beach some place you really can´t count that as knowing that country.

Once I overheard following in Copenhagen:
A:"Where did you go on vacation?"
B:" To Mallorca"
A "Where is that?"
B" No idea, We flew"

I would like to share this picture, because not many people have the opportunity to visit Antarctica. This is Esperanza Base on the Antarctic peninsula south of Argentina. This base is operated by Argentina, but they must welcome all nations to visit and/or stay.

@saab,
England on a summer's day. It was quite beautiful there - just hope my photograph does it justice!

Lovely place.
Interresting with the modern buildings in the background.

@saab,
It is an ancient town and has a castle and many buildings of historic interest, but where new building has been carried out, good town planning has made certain that it's been done sympathetically to existing buildings/landscapes.

Chamonix!
I suffered considerable discomfort due to altitude sickness whilst here, and had to retreat back down by a couple of hundred feet to a cafe, where I nursed a hot chocolate until I felt better.
Never had AS before, and certainly never want to have it again.
One of the most beautiful places I've ever been, though.

Psst.....came across this spectacular photo in the archive section of the blogspot that Region linked in his brilliant "Historic Photos Restored" thread.

i liked Charmonix too, but I never liked the top of any mountain in Switzerland. I am scared of hights. To my suprise it is not even uncommun in Switerland.
I prefered the lakes. Here Lake Geneva

Mine? Yvoire.

Do you know St Genis or Fernay (both just inside France) at all?

Sunsets and sunrises I really like because of the wonderful colours.
More interesting is light.

@saab,
That's a beautiful image, Saab, thank you for posting it. I too love sunsets - light and shade - the 'feeling' of a photograph rather than anything else.
