Nature. I like nature. The smell of most flowers. Walking trough a forest with no-one around but the local nature. And those beautiful colors in the autumn. Although I’m missing out on a lot of trees, because there is a thing called ‘climate’. Around here its mediocre and it can be cold, so it’s not up for every style of nature. Plus i don’t mind seeing some exotic things from time to time.
So here are some of the worlds most beautiful trees and their formations.
