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.
