Beach on the Andaman Sea in Khao Lak, Thailand.
I took this photo on the Campuhan Ridge trail in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. The hike was quite nice short (about 1 km, 2 km round trip) walk. The goes starts with some vistas of rice fields and nature. Then the trail goes into a village setting with quite a few artists galleries for the tourists. At the end of the trail there is a very nice restaurant with great views.
Trees at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum. The Arboretum is a nice place for short walks into a nature within the city of Madison.

Dinosaur National Monument in Utah is isolated, and while the scenery is nice, it isn’t what I would call spectacular. You can spot fossilized dinosaur bones which are amazing in fact, but almost undetectable within the surroundings.
They are about to open up a visitor’s center which might have some nice exhibits (it wasn’t open when I went).
Wonderful sunset on a mostly deserted beach in Khao Lak, Thailand , today. Normally my photos of sunsets are washed out and don’t even provide any idea of how beautiful the sunset was. The photos I took today (after a certain point in the sunset) somehow came up with enhanced color (significantly more than I saw live). Also the area around the sun is more distorted in this picture and those seeming camera effects around the sun were indeed not what my eyes saw.
I took this photo while walking from Batu Feringgi to Tanjung Bungah. There were some nice views but it probably isn’t very smart to walk it as considerable distances have no sidewalk at all and you have to walk within a foot of where cars and trucks zoom by. And even when there is a sidewalk you have to be watchful for huge holes, feet across and several feet deep, you could easily fall through.
