A Whole New World

Are you a victim of the dreaded chain email? The ones passed along by friends or family who just have to share the hilarious/increadible/awe evoking material? I am. Though I cannot complain, in fact, I must thank our dear co-founder here at Zatista for this inspiration, as it is the reason for this very post.

One of the things I admire most about landscape paintings and photography is that I am always left amazed that such fantastic places exist on this earth. It is sometimes inconcievable to me that this is the scenery around us, and we don’t even know about it.

Tulip Fields, Netherlands, www.boredpanda.com/amazing-places/

The Tulip Fields in the Netherlands, almost too picturesque to believe? Something out of a painting. It is no question that a landscape such as this would inspire a painter like Monet to create an artwork such as his Tulip Fields, 1886. With entire festivals devoted to the spring flower in the Netherlands, you too can visit the scenery and colourful passages that inspired Monet.

Salar de Uyuni, which runs through southwest Bolivia, is the worlds largest salt flat. The body of water was created as a result of the transformation of several prehistoric lakes merging as one.

Does this not look like the setting out of a Salvador Dali painting? The color scheme alone makes it a perfect comparison, along with the skewed perspective that the photo was taken with.

Other incredible and jaw-dropping scenes?

The Black Forest, Germany, www.boredpanda.com/amazing-places/

And I am pretty sure this exotic place inspired Dr. Seuss’ landscape for the Lorax.

The Truffla Forest, The Lorax

Maybe Japan has had the monopoly on the Truffla trees this whole time.

Check out more amazing scenes in the Bored Panada article, Amazing Places. Be sure to tell us what landscapes were the inspiration for those big artists, and what places you aspire to see most. And don’t forget to email the link of Amazing Places onto your friends, family, pen pals, interns, dogs, and rabbits. Perhaps together we can change the stigma around chain mail.
