Our Big Beautiful World

By Betty Boyd


The wonders of this world cannot always be seen. For example, the smallest cells within our own bodies that can fight off disease. Even the tiniest of insects, to the magnificent Orca whales. Do not forget the majestic mountains from the Himalayas to Mount Everest.

I love photography! For me, taking pictures of nature is the most intriguing and exciting part of this world. There are so many interesting subjects I could take images of them forever.

Here are a few of the areas I still want to visit, explore and gather the light of their essence.


Hawaii has always fascinated me, since the days of watching the original TV show “Hawaii Five-O”, which was reprized in 2010. The breathtaking vistas of the land, sea, and explosion of waves on the beaches. The striking differences of each of the islands that comprise Hawaii.

Oahu is the island I most want to see. The beautiful Waikiki Beach, to the National Landmark of Pearl Harbor, where World War II started and ended. I also want to pay my respects to the lives lost, by visiting the Arizona memorial.


I have always loved our national parks and monuments, so the next area of interest is in the state of Utah. Did you know there are five national parks? I will visit all of them eventually, but the one that is the most captivating is Arches National Park.

According to Wikipedia, “it is home to over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations. It contains the highest density of natural arches in the world.” These arches have an array of colors from reds, golds, oranges depending upon the time of day or the year.

I could go on, but I love all of God’s creations, we are His handiwork, just look at yourself, and you will know we are the best of His creations.

What is unique about this world? Imagine the possibilities…
