    Where is the most beautiful place on earth? Have you visited it, or do you have pictures of it, or do you plan to visit it?

      Blondepoet, thanks for reminding me of a place I always mean't to visit. I can picture it in my mind right now, and it takes away those winter blues. I will play some music and imagine I am there.

    The most beautiful place I have ever seen is the Mists of Avalon.
    The town of Glastonbury in south west England used to be an island. The land all around is below sea level. It was less than 200 years ago that Dutch engineers reclaimed the land. It used to be marshland and you could only get to the town by ferry boat.
    Outside the town is a Tor. It's a high narrow hill with a terrific view of the countryside but the phenomenon of the mists is something I can only attempt to describe. Words do not do it justice.
    Because the land is below sea level, from time to time, notably in the Spring, a mist rises that covers the town. From the top of the Tor, looking down, the town and the surrounding countryside disappear. You are looking down on a cloud. On the night of the full moon, if you stand on the Tor, the moon reflects off the mist and turns everything silver. The ground and everything around you takes on a silvery light that is magical.
    As I said, words will never do it justice.

      Thanks Ian. Your description has inspired me to re-visit this magical area of England.

        Sean:
        I've travelled much of the world.
        One of natures most awe inspiring natural creations exists right here in the good ole USA:
        If you get a chance travel to Montana and Canada and witness the grandeur of "Glacier National Park" from both countries.

    hands down, i have to agree with Quark. it is gorgeous.
    my preference would be the Buttes of northern California.

    if you have the chance SJ, go to silver lake. it is at the top of the Buttes. The water is literally 50 meters but looks 5 inches deep. miles of view, redwoods, forest, flatland.
    just cool. smile
