This image of a Kalahari farm shows how tough life can be. Temperatures here are 38 to 40 degrees in the shade, but there is very little shade or vegitation in this area after a fire ravaged the area a few months ago.A few months before this image was captured, this area was hit by a massive bush fire which rushed over a number of these Kalahari farm lands.Here you can see how the vegitation is slowly starting to apear again. In the mean time, rains have created errosion because of there being very little vegitation to hold the soil.About 2/3 of the farm was not affected by the fires, but the wildlife on this private game reserve usually can be found in the fire damaged areas, becuase here the new shoots of vegitation are the most tasty.This Virtual Tour image created by John Gore, view more Virtual Tours of South Africa.

Saint-Paul, or Saint-Paul de Vence, is one of the oldest medieval towns on the French Riviera. Strong walls encircle narrow, charming streets and squares and they create everywhere beautiful spots, like the one shown in this 360° image with a tall palm climbing to the sky. Close to the clocktower of the Collegiate Church.No surprise that the beauty of the location, the colours of the countryside and the weather of the French Riviera attracted many painters and artists in the last two centuries

In the beautiful village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, in southeastern France, there is a charming, small chapel entirely redecorated by the Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon. The interior is absolutely enchanting with delicate colours in the stained glass windows and paintings, the sleek lines of the altar and the chromatically rich mosaic. The classic music playing accompanies the tourists in their peaceful visit.This 17th century chapel was the headquarter of the charity's brotherhood of White Penitents and it was restored at the beginning of the 2000s.

Vista dall'alto Venezia appare come una città molto verde. Nel fotopiano del 1981, come nella veduta prospettica che Jacopo de' Barbari ci ha lasciato esattamente 500 anni fa, compaiono moltissimi giardini e orti, entro parchi, conventi e corti private, sia nelle aree periferiche e nelle isole della laguna, che, non di meno, nelle zone centrali, a S. Marco o lungo le rive del Canal Grande. Nascosti spesso da alti muri e tolti quindi alla vista dei passanti, secondo un principio di spazio chiuso, privato e privilegiato, i Giardini veneziani costituiscono un grande patrimonio storico-architettonico e botanico, poco conosciuto o anzi generalmente ignorato, ma sicuramente bisognoso di tutela e valorizzazione, ponendo non pochi problemi di conoscenza, ai fini della sua conservazione e manutenzione.
