A sunrise hot air balloon ride over the volcanic-ridden "fairy chimney" landscape of Cappadocia, Turkey, is a blissfully beautiful experience.

Relaxation

Though it may be difficult to believe, this picture was taken in December in California. My family, being Texas natives, went to the beach in our day clothes, while all of the California natives around us were in their bathing suits, basking in the sunlight. This southern California beach was so beautiful to me, and the fact that everyone there looked so peaceful and relaxed made my heart light up.
