ORANGE OF THE EARTH SERIES// The Nubian Desert, in northeastern Sudan, is essentially a sandstone plateau interspersed with many wadis (seasonal rivers) that die out before reaching the Nile. Seperated from the Libyan desert by the Nile river and Red Sea, the Nubian Desert is rocky and rugged, though there are some dunes, and toward the Red Sea the desert, rising in gentle slopes to the west, culminates in precipitous uplands of the Red Sea Hills. The orange-gold hue of the sand renders it a picturesque landscape. Created by @mahak.agrawal Source Imagery @maxartechnologies#earthcapture#desert#redsea

ORANGE 🍊 OF THE EARTH SERIES// Close to the Sun's Eye, the Monument Valley on the Navajo Nation Reservation features towering red sandstone buttes. Some of the named buttes include- Hidden bridge, Big Hogan, Ear of the Wind, Emerging Submarine. Personally, the entire landscape of the Reservation seems surreal and intriguing. Just one look at the bird's eye view, and numerous perspectives to how the landscape and landforms look emerge. To me, it seems like a period of time when the time stands still and all the dinosaurs turn into rocks and stone figures. Created by @mahak.agrawal Source Imagery @google P.S.

ORANGE 🍊 OF THE EARTH SERIES// Comb Ridge area in the San Juan County of Utah, United States, is an ancient rock formation tilted at an angle of approximately 20 degrees and eroded by runoff water containing weathered iron compounds. Tapered along the desert landscape of southeastern Utah, the Comb Ridge's blunt rock extension occurred nearly 65 million years ago. The Ridge area, depending upon the light, looks orange, or purple or bright yellow. Created by @mahak.agrawal Source Imagery @google#utah#geology#geography#earthcapture#creativehub

ORANGE OF THE EARTH SERIES// Namib desert, also known as- Sand of the Sea Dunes, lies along the south-western coast of Africa. One of the driest and oldest deserts on Earth, with evidence of life, exists in this seemingly desolate environment. The sand noticeably changes colour across the sand sea. In the west, close to the sea, the sands are whiter, becoming progressively pinker as one moves inland. The red-orange colouration is caused by grain coatings of oxidised iron which comes from the weathering of rocks and their fragments.

ORANGE 🍊 OF THE EARTH SERIES// Another spatial perspective from the Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, famously known as the Monument Valley. Did you know that this valley of rocks and other intriguing features of nature is spread across two states of the (United) States? Yes, it is - Utah and Arizona share parts of the Valley which in turn is a small part of the Navajo Nation. Created by @mahak.agrawal Source Imagery @google In this Valley, one can actually relive Mandy Moore @mandymooremm and Shane West @theshanewest scene in (grab your handkerchief to wipe your tears movie): A Walk to Remember, where she places a foot on either side of the state line- and technically you too will be in 2 places/states at the moment. #monumentvalley#earthcapture#beautifuldestinations#earthart#othallofframe

Little do people know that the Valley is part of the semi-autonomous Navajo Nation which is the "largest Native American territory in the United States with its own governance and judicial system that operates with its own President"- @handluggageonly The Valley's Navajo name is actually Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, which translates to the valley of rocks.

Tinged with red algae and other microorganisms, the water is a deep orange-red hue. Perfectly contrasted, the salt lake is dotted with large white pools caused by massive borax deposits on the lake’s surface.

ORANGE 🍊 OF THE EARTH Series // Monument Valley is one of the most iconic landscapes in the United States, that made its Hollywood cameo in Forrest Gump, Mission Impossible II, the UK television series of Doctor Who. Amongst all the scenic scapes of the valley, Mitchell Butte is one of the lesser famous butte (small, isolated hill with steep, often vertical sides and a small, relatively flat top) located in the Arizona state region of the Valley. Until the 1930’s, Monument Valley was an obscure, seldom visited location. The only ones who really aware of the beauty of this place were the Navajo Indians who lived on the land. It wasn’t until John Ford featured this landscape in his well-known films (including Stagecoach and Rio Grande) that Monument Valley started gaining popularity- Power of Hollywood?

ORANGE 🍊 OF THE EARTH Series // Starting the week with Unagi (or as Rachel says- Salmon Skin Roll!) - Well, not really. These salmon coloured roofs of row buildings can be found in the Tanjong Pagar historic district of Chinatown, Singapore. The historic district of Tanjong Pagar emerged as an enclave in the 1820s, to thousands of migrants from southern China and southern India. Post-World War II, the district along with other precincts south of the Singapore River came to be known as the Greater Town (or Da Po, 大坡) of Singapore. On July 7, 1989, the area was officially given ‘conservation’ status for its architectural, historical and social significance. Over time, original clay tiles on the roof that got damaged have been replaced through restoration works, whilst retaining the profile, size, and colour of the tiles. Next time you visit Singapore, add it to your bucket list! Don’t leave it to salmon else!

The bend is visible from a steep cliff that's accessible via a short hike off U.S. Route 89, and it's wildly popular. As a measure to curb tourist inflow and fatalities, the National Park Service is always working to improve the safety and serenity of the landscape region.

ORANGE OF THE EARTH SERIES// West of Page, Arizona lies the 220 m high arch-gravity dam- the Glen Canyon Dam. Built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) from 1956 to 1966, the dam on Colorado River forms Lake Powell, named after John Wesley Powell, who in 1869 led the first expedition to traverse Colorado's Grand Canyon by boat. Construction of the dam has an interesting history and a threatening future. Scientists speculate that the Glen Dam will soon break, disrupting water supply down the canyon, and also damaging water supplies from Las Vegas to San Diego Created by @mahak.agrawal Source Imagery Landsat, Copernicus, Google #pagearizona#glencanyon#water#grandcanyon#lakepowell

Also known as Eye of Africa, the Richat Structure is a deeply eroded geological (circular) feature in the Sahara's Adrar Plateau, near Ouadane, west-central Mauritania- having concentric circles of igneous rocks which have undergone different degrees of changes and challenges. The site is also a hotspot for archaeological investigation, where diverse stone tools have been found in the layers beneath the Structure.

Amidst the majestic beauty of Yellowstone sits a hot spring with famously rainbow-coloured edges. Grand Prismatic is the largest hot spring in Yellowstone and is considered to be the third largest in the world. The Hayden Expedition in 1871 named this spring because of its beautiful colouration, and artist Thomas Moran made water-colour sketches depicting its rainbow-like colours. The sketches seemed exaggerations and geologist A.C. Peale returned in 1878 to verify the colours. The colours begin with a deep blue centre followed by pale blue. Green algae forms beyond the shallow edge. Outside the scalloped rim, a band of yellow fades into orange. Red then marks the outer border. Steam often shrouds the spring which reflects the brilliant colours. Created by @mahak.agrawal Source Imagery @google#yellowstone#nationalparks#hotsprings#beautifuldestinations#earthcapture
