Alien glow

Step into White Pocket, in northern Arizona’s Paria Canyon, and it may feel as if you’ve been transported to another planet. The rocky landscape—so named for its white stone set in red sand—is only reachable by four-wheel-drive vehicles due to deep sand. And that green tint in the pool of water? It’s not extraterrestrial life; the pool is just teeming with algae.

The rock

Foamy waves, agitated by European storm Ruzica, swell around the Tévennec lighthouse in Brittany, France. Local lore complements this moody scene—the lighthouse is believed to be haunted. The image does possess a phenomenal quality, according to Your Shot photographer Mathieu Rivrin: “When we went there, the light was divine, bringing a touch of green to the magnificent Iroise [Sea] for what remains one of my favorite pictures [of] the storm.”

The Green Tunnel

Known as the most beautiful street in the world, the Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho in Porto Alegre, Brazil is like a bit of rainforest in the middle of a metropolis. Formed by over 100 tipuana trees lining both sides of the street with serpentine branches creating a canopy overhead, the “Green Tunnel” stretches for approximately 500 meters (over 1,500 feet) through the middle of the city. 

Originally planted in the 1930s by German workers employed at a local brewery, the stretch of trees was at risk for destruction in 2005 to make room for a shopping mall, but residents fought to protect the natural wonder, which has now been classified as an environmental heritage site.
