We are surrounded by interesting and fascinating things, but we don’t have the chance to see them often. Perhaps it is because we are so focused on the day to day aspects of life that we do not notice what is rare around us. Or maybe it’s because we just haven’t been so lucky. Sometimes it is enough to stop for a moment to look at the grass, to walk on the beach or in the woods to discover some rare wonders that nature or history has left us. Look at these images and let your mind wander past these places and those moments that someone has managed to immortalize.
