Ayers Rock (Uluru) in central Australia takes on an unusual colour as waterfalls cascade down its walls. The rock, which is usually a reddish colour, is shown after heavy rains and is seldom seen like this. Starting in January 2009, a global poll will allow people to vote and select the New Seven Wonders Of Nature.





Hard on the heels of a global vote that named the New Seven Wonders Of The World, organizers have announced a similar worldwide poll to select the New Seven Wonders Of Nature.





The nomination and voting process, which will culminate in the summer of 2010, is outlined at www.new7wonders.com. To be eligible for voting, every nominated location has to have an official supporting committee.

Vietnamese fishermen start their morning fishing in Ha Long bay in northern Quang Ninh province. Any site nominated for the New Seven Wonders Of Nature must have an official supporting committee. See www.new7wonders.com.





“Nominations must be for a clearly defined natural site or natural monument that was not created or significantly altered by humans for aesthetic reasons,” the website states. “Physical or natural phenomena like the northern lights, the gulf stream or shooting stars are not eligible.”
