Greeny-ness of Earth over a period of 5 years from NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP.
Although 75% of the planet is a relatively unchanging ocean of blue, the remaining 25% of Earth’s surface is a dynamic green. Data from the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite is able to detect these subtle differences in greenness. The resources on this page highlight our ever-changing planet, using highly detailed vegetation index data from the satellite, developed by scientists at NOAA. The darkest green areas are the lushest in vegetation, while the pale colors are sparse in vegetation cover either due to snow, drought, rock, or urban areas. Satellite data from April 2012 to April 2013 was used to generate these animations and images.
Grand Canyon : Blink of Time captures the sights in timelapse that gives the viewer an accelerated experience. But even in contrast to the speed of geologic time, the timelapse sequences are mere blips in the life of these formations of rock and water. From GOTM Films
Why would you ever think that this would be a good idea?
Geoff Mackley, Bradley Ambrose, Nathan Berg, after an epic struggle with the weather for 35 days, we became the first people ever to get this close to Marum Volcano’s famed lava lake on Ambrym Island, Vanuatu. Coming within 30 metres of the lava lake down a watercourse, it was possible to stand the heat for only 6 seconds. With Fire Brigade breathing apparatus and heat proof proximity suit it was possible to stand on the very edge and view the incredible show for over 40 minutes.
Gur Kimel creates beautiful jewelry from natural shapes, materials and textures, taking found souvenirs and dipping portions to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
Exploring and collecting exceptional pieces in the Jerusalem hills, urban Tel-Aviv, European forests and Scandinavian villages, I find that nature tells a different story in each location, and this story changes again from season to season. No two pieces are the same, and consequently each piece of jewellery is splendidly unique.
The Gerber Steady Tool is a standard multi-tool with an extra tool – it works as a tripod for a small camera. The reviews seem to say that it’s not big enough for a dslr, but I wouldn’t think it would be.
