The town of Alice Springs, viewed from Anzac Hill at sunset, Northern Territory, NT, Australia

Alice Springs (Arrernte: Mparntwe) is the third largest town in the Northern Territory. Popularly known as "the Alice" or simply "Alice", Alice Springs is situated in the geographic centre of Australia near the southern border of the Northern Territory.
Alice Springs lies in the physical and spiritual heart of Australia’s arid zone, about halfway between Darwin to the north and Adelaide to the south.
The site is known as Mparntwe to its original inhabitants, the Arrernte, who have lived in the Central Australian desert in and around what is now Alice Springs for thousands of years. "Alice" in the English language was named by surveyor W. W. Mills after Lady Alice Todd (née Alice Gillam Bell), wife of Sir Charles Todd.
The Alice, as it's often known, sprang from humble beginnings as a lonely telegraph station on the continent-spanning Overland Telegraph Line more than 140 years ago. Although still famous for its far-flung location, Alice Springs is no longer the frontier settlement of legend. Yet the vast surroundings of red desert and burnished ranges still underscore its remoteness.
The town straddles the usually dry Todd River on the northern side of the MacDonnell Ranges. The surrounding region is known as Central Australia, or the Red Centre, an arid environment consisting of several different deserts.

Grizzly cub crossing Haines highway somewhere between Haines - Alaska, USA - and Haines Junction - Yukon Territory, Canada.

The story: I watched for a couple hours a grizzly mom and her two cubs.
I was on the road (outside of my car, not a good example) and them on the hillside.
They close the road quietly when the mother suddenly decided to cross the road in front of me.
As I watches her - who had no aggressive - it is when she turned her head to see if the children followed, that I saw the cub standing in the middle of the pavement looked at me ...
When I take this photo, I'm in front of my car, she is at the rear, and I have an eye in the camera and the other for the mother.
300mm
A beautiful moment!

Views of Emerald Lake and some mountain ranges, located north of the community of Carcross, Yukon Territory, Canada.

The turquoise-green color of the lake is the result of sunlight reflecting off of, what is called, marl. Marl is the white calcium carbonate that settles on the lake floor. It is created by mixing the limestone remains from the ice age with the calcium in the alpine water.
One mountain especially stands out - the Gray Ridge Mountain at an elevation of 6085 feet.

view these 10,000-year-old glacial giants from many points along the northern and eastern coasts, in every shape and size, with colours - depend on the weather - ranging from snow-white to the deepest aquamarine.
Their sheer size sends the mind racing, and that's not even counting the ninety-percent still unseen below the surface. It was these types and sizes of bergs that sank the infamous Titanic, a mere 400 miles from our coast.
Iceberg Alley is an area stretching from the coast of Labrador to the northeast coast of the island of Newfoundland.
Some of the more popular places from shore : St. Lewis, Battle Harbour, Red Bay, Point Amour, St. Anthony, La Scie, Twillingate, Bonavista, St. John's/Cape Spear, Bay Bulls/Witless Bay, Cape St. Mary's and St. Vincent's.

Photo of a Bald Eagle carrying his snack at Terra Nova national park, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

The Bald Eagle - Haliaeetus leucocephalus - is a bird of prey found in North America.
It is the national bird and symbol of the United States of America.
This sea eagle has two known sub-species and forms a species pair with the White-tailed Eagle.
Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico.
It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.
The Bald Eagle is a powerful flier, and soars on thermal convection currents. It reaches speeds of 56–70 kilometers per hour (35–43 mph) when gliding and flapping, and about 48 kilometers per hour (30 mph) while carrying fish.
Its dive speed is between 120–160 kilometers per hour (75–99 mph), though it seldom dives vertically.
