Most Beautiful Places In The World

 ACE Basin, South Carolina

A moss-hung cypress keeps watch over the placid waters of South Carolina’s ACE Basin, named for three rivers that run through it: the Ashepoo, Combahee, and Edisto. This relatively intact and exceptionally rich ecosystem provides feeding and resting areas for waterfowl, as well as wading birds, mink, and alligators.

Annapurna Circuit, Nepal

“Taking the less traveled foot trails on Nepal’s Annapurna Circuit can be immensely rewarding,” writes Your Shot member Daniel Hoshizaki. He captured this shot from a trail between Chamje and Tal, now skipped by most in favor of a new—and much easier—road. “But taking the road means missing some of the most spectacular scenery on the entire circuit,” he writes. “The unfolding view of the river, canyon, and lush vegetation kept beckoning me to climb higher up the trail in order to capture the magnificence of the range’s landscape.”

Bugling Elk, Yellowstone

During the late summer breeding season, the bugling of bull elk echoes through Yellowstone National Park. Males bellow to attract females and to intimidate the competition. Anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 elk spend the summer inside the park; in the winter the number drops to around 5,000.

Castel in Vilifranca, Spain

Red-shirted castellers climb over and on each other to form a castel, or human tower, in Vilifranca, Spain. The uniquely Catalan tradition of castels is highlighted by summer tournaments.

Flamingos in Tanzania

As many as three million lesser flamingos (Phoenicopterus minor) live on the soda lakes scattered the length of Africa’s Great Rift Valley. Lake Natron in Tanzania, pictured here, is one of the few sites in Africa where the birds regularly lay eggs. The lake’s unbearable heat, undrinkable water, and unwalkable mudflats offer safety from most predators.

Great Horned Owl, Montana

A great horned owl shows off its unflinching stare in a grove of golden cottonwoods in Missoula, Montana. The species gets its name from the hornlike tufts on the bird’s head. These carnivorous creatures of the night have a wingspan that can reach nearly five feet.

Snowdonia National Park, Wales

Shepherds move their flock along in Snowdonia National Park, a sweep of green in northwest Wales. The park covers nearly 840 square miles and includes some of the most impressive mountains and moorland in Britain. This is climbers’ and outdoor enthusiasts’ country, a genuine mountain landscape that tops out on Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.

The City, London

Covering a little over a square mile, the oldest part of London—known somewhat confusingly as the City—is now a world financial center. (The Bank of England headquarters, nicknamed “the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street,” is seen here.) On weekdays the area bustles as more than 300,000 workers come and go, but nights and weekends are quiet—only 10,000 people live here.

Varanasi, India

A colorful mural brightens an alleyway in Varanasi, Hindus’ holiest city. To visit it once in a lifetime is every Hindu’s goal; to die here is to have the greatest chance of salvation.

Ocean Blue Hole, Bahamas

Divers explore an underwater cave system on Andros Island in the Bahamas. Offshore flooded caves, called ocean blue holes, are extensions of the sea, subject to the same heavy tides and host to many of the same species found in the surrounding waters. The blue holes of the Bahamas yield a scientific trove that may even shed light on life beyond Earth.
