There's so much beauty in the world, if you just look up - unless you're a city-dweller.

You're probably going to just see a lot of scaffolding. Or if you're lucky, some pigeons pooping off a telephone wire.

Skyscrapers aside, countless sights of beauty surrounds us in nature. One of Earth's greatest wonders comes from the awe-inspiring mountains which can literally take your breath away. Seriously, the altitude is unreal.

If you're lucky enough to be trekking through Brazil, the view alone of Sugar Loaf Mountain is simply breathtaking.
