Casa Milà Rooftop / Barcelona

The Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera meaning the 'The Quarry' is a building designed by the architect Antoni Gaudi, and built during the years 1905–1910. It is constructed entirely in natural stones, and lacking all the colors and ornamentation design.

One of the most interesting places of the whole complex is the rooftop: Here you can find a large ensemble of surrealistic chimneys all looking different and like sculptures standing there alone or in small groups, dominating the rooftop.

Ocotillo Cactus / Joshua Tree Nationalpark

The Ocotillo Cactus looks like a bunch of dead sticks for most of the year, but when it begins to rain the plant quickly develops small, green leaves and eventually bright red flowers in the spring or summer. After blooming, the ocotillo's leaves dry up and fall off and the cactus returns to its dead-looking state.

Monument Valley / Arizona

Monument Valley is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the northern border of Arizona with southern Utah near the Four Corners area. The rock on the first image is the beautiful "Agathla Peak" wich can be seen on the way to the valley from the south. According to the Navajo, Agathla (meaning “much wool,” so named according to a legend involving a snake living in the vent who would toss antelope fur out “the door” after eating his fill) is the center of the world. The peak is thought to transmit prayers to the Holy People and to create more distance between the earth and sky.

Mono Lake / California

Mono Lake is a large, shallow saline lake in Mono County, California, formed at least 760,000 years ago as a terminal lake in a basin that has no outlet to the ocean. Because it lacks an outlet, dissolved salts make the lake very alkaline and saline. Millions of Alkali flies live along the shores of the lake and walk underwater encased in small air bubbles for grazing and to lay eggs.
