8 Beautiful & Bizarre Landscapes (Slideshow)

Salar de Uyuni should have been on here too! Salt flat in Bolivia. When there is water on the surface it reflects the sky as clearly as a mirror!

some lovely pictures. the limestone pavements of the yorkshire dales in the uk are worth looking at, as well as the various lakes in the lake district, again in the uk. the glaciers and glacier regions of norway are also breathtaking
