The Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral also called Granada Cathedral is a neoclassical Catholic cathedral located in the colonial city of Granada.

The first cathedral temple was built around 1525. But by 1578, the church had already been burned twice.  The second temple was completed in about 1751. More renovations ensued. The cathedral as it stands today was completed in its entirety in 1972.

The cathedral dominates Granada’s main plaza.

Worldly Vistas: Light the Sky

Northern Lights, Hudson Bay , Canada

Northern Lights
Photographed in Canada

Northern lights—aurora borealis—are caused by the interaction of charged particles from the sun with atoms in the upper atmosphere. These dancing lights are strongest in the winter months and are a joy to see. The downside? Yes! It was very cold, but worth being out on Hudson Bay’s tundra to watch this natural phenomenon.

Tamezret
Photographed in Tunisia

Tamezret is a  Berber village located southeast of the country, about 25 miles southwest of the Gabes—the capital city on which it depends. It is one of the first villages to deviate from the troglodyte dwellings in the region. Many residents here have resisted linguistic assimilation and still speak Berber within their families.

This is a fascinating place to see the past alive!

Ice everywhere…at least for now. But the beautiful glaciers in Antarctica are at threat from global warming as warming temperatures, melting ice, and rising seas endanger this pristine ecosystem.

I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. Just sayin’

Worldly Vistas: Snowscape

Photographed in Canada

 

Hudson Bay, Manitoba is a glorious place, for polar bears, that is! It’s the second largest bay in the world, second only to the Bay of Bengal. And, it’s very cold even all year round, especially in the winter. Yet, it  is also beautiful in the way tundra, blowing snow, blocked sun and sparse trees have a beauty all to themselves.

El Valle de la Luna
Photographed in Chile

Moon Valley is located in the Cordillera de la Sal (Salt Mountains) in the Atacama Desert. It is an interesting area with stones and sand formations that, for millennia, floods and winds have given it a series of amazing colors and texture. Given its rugged terrain, scientists tested a prototype for a Mars rover here.
