The disastrous earthquake that hit Haiti January 12, 2010 has affected an estimated 3 million people and is one of the most catastrophic natural disasters recorded. Earlier this month, we asked readers to send us the photographs that best captured their travel experiences. From almost 3000 entries, we have selected the best and categorised them. Today we highlight the best images of the natural world. A Bold Colorful Life is a state of mind---you know who you are and live authentically; you choose to do the things you are passionate about; you surround yourself with colorful people who reflect your lifestyle and values; you create an environment that stimulates the very best you have to give. Today we highlight the best images of the natural world. Northern end of Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island, Queensland. By Sue Jackson of Amblesid.
