Jumpy the super dog — probably best to watch then when your pets aren’t around.
The Beauty of Hawaiian Waves
Each wave is a work of art, varying in shape and color. The breath-taking images show the split-second in which each one breaks and crashes on to the sand, and are the work of two keen photographers who wish to remind people just how beautiful Mother Nature can be.
Photographers and friends Nick Selway, 29, and CJ Kale, 36, position themselves in the magnificent Hawaiian water - and then wait for the waves to crash into their heads.
This beautiful piece of limestone contains fern-like images that are actually not plants, but the result of a branching growth pattern of mineral deposits called dendrites. The growth of these types of dendrites takes thousands of years and are an elaborate example of the beauty of nature. The face of the stone is in its natural state; the back and sides have been smoothed by hand. Mined in Germany.
Creepy Mechanical Bugs
Chicago-based jeweler, JM Gershenson-Gates, creates unique accessories from discarded watch parts, in a bid “to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass.” Each of these tiny masterpiece takes several hours to create, and because the design is too consistent to suffer any breaks, Jason has to complete every one of them in a single sitting. That means he sometimes spends up to 12 hours assembling watch springs, stems, gears and straps, and soldering them all together.
The World’s Largest Salt Flat
Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat located in southwest Bolivia. The flat is 10,582 square kilometers and 11,995 feet above sea level. The salt is over 32 feet thick in the center. It was formed as a result of the transformation of several prehistoric lakes.
The reflective quality of the sun hitting the water transforms the landscape into the world’s largest mirror. Many people come here to experience the beauty of heaven and earth existing side by side - the mystery of nature.
