The beauty of Nature is extraordinary, incredible artwork and artistic. Her creations are unique. We offer you to examine the most dazzling "smiles of Nature” which we have lately in Egypt.

April 17, 2012, in Hurghada was ambitious in its scope sandstorm, called-Khamsin (fifty).

This is a hot dry wind blowing from the south, which is characteristic for the north-east of the desert.

Someone very poetically said: "Khamsin - it is fifty inhalations and exhalations of desert, sleeping under a cloudy terracotta sky".

Many tour companies had to cancel a pleasure trips how on the land so at the sea. Airlines suspended flights from airports of Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh. And it seems that the inconvenience of sandstorm we can see clearly, but between the lines in this particular lesson of Nature can be heard - stop for a moment and contemplate!

Absolute triumph and a surprise of Nature has been the appearance of whales in the Red Sea in Hurghada in the fall of 2011.

Although the fishery biologists believe that it is not such a rare fact, as the Red Sea is a part of the Indian Ocean, and it is likely that whales can be developed in some areas of the sea to breed.

But still, all the scientists believe that the emergence of whales is exceptional and requires careful research that would provide comfort and safety of maritime Giants!

Snow on the African continent moves from an unusual phenomenon to the natural fact. This winter very strange view you could observed in Egypt, in particular, in Alexandria and also on Jebel Catherine (Mount St. Catherine) in the Sinai Peninsula.

This year in this region had even frozen because of the Asian anticyclone at the end of February. Creators of all kinds of art fit to take an example with non-standard approaches of Mother Nature.

And finally, a gift that made the volcano, located under the Red Sea, namely - the birth of a new island 60 kilometers from Yemen.

The new land is not yet have a name. For the first time it seemed on the surface of the sea 23 December 2011, as seen in photographs NASA satellites. By the 7th of January, it has grown to the size of 530 to 710 meters, and by January 15, 2012, the volcano has stopped erupting.

Experts said, the eruption of a volcano in the Red Sea was a surprise. "We must have forgotten that the bottom of the Red Sea is the boundary boards and underwater volcanoes in this area are frequent enough ", says volcanologist Harldur Sigurdsson from the University of Rhode Island. The volcano is a part of a group of islands Zubar, a chain of volcanoes, which last erupted about a hundred years ago, Sigurdsson said. "Tourists will find here a barren land without soil with a rough surface, where there are dark gray and brown dunes of volcanic ash and rough rocky lava flows", how scientist described the attractions. It is interesting, how many adventurers would like to be the first who will step to the "new earth"?

There is nothing more perfect than Nature! Does not that inspiring?
