You've made me homesick.
I know that the pictures you posted of the desert with the mountain ranges in the background are probably from the Mojave or maybe the western side of the Sonora, but where I grew up in the bootheel of New Mexico the Chihuahuan Desert looks identical to those pictures. Inhospitable as hell, but it was and in a way always will be my home and seeing pictures that remind me of it always gives me a happy, safe feeling. Thank you!

Obvious proof of intelligent life! Note the symmetry of the layering! Only an advanced civilization could create such a sybaritic synthesis of delight. Unfortunately it is apparent that the natives held to a rigid caste system, with the lower castes being resigned to the lower tiers and being forced to wallow in the muck flowing down from higher levels.

What?
Earth?.....

Nevermind.

[/sarcasm]

Beautiful image by the way.

I love those basalt columns in Ireland.

Anyone remember that old video game "Q*bert".

I just picture that little devil bouncing all over the place every time I look at them.

*These are not my own pictures but they are of my own heart*

City of Rocks state park about 20 minutes North of Deming, New Mexcio. Celebrated many birthdays there as a kid.



The rocks are a natural volcanic "spurt" which left them in an old sea bed that over time eroded away, leaving what truly does resemble a small city on the horizon.






View down the valley near City of Rocks. I have hunted deer many times in the sage, creosote, and mesquite brush in this picture. I have also sat in the saddle this picture was taken from and watched a huge summer thunderstorm roll across the valley with a several hundred foot high dust storm along the leading edge of the rain & wind. It ranks as one of my fondest memories.

Now on to White Sands missile range:




We'd "surf" the dunes on old collapsed cardboard boxes when I was a kid. Lot of fun, at least until you ran into a yucca.

Lets hope there is no oil at those places or else the Republicans will be chanting "Drill-baby-Drill"


Other than that....very nice pics.


Here, I'll help save your post from being labeled "Political Trolling" by contributing these (not my own pics, but stuff I've saved off the internet over time):

Alaskan Pipeline









As for the pics posted by the OP, I agree! Very nice and something I've never seen before!

Actually, it reminded me of the final scene in "Star Trek, the Motion Picture" where everyone got out of the Enterprise and hauled off to check out V'Ger...

Very interesting pics from everyone, I was quite intrigued by the Dorstenia gigas-

I mean look at that and tell me you can't see a morbidly obese man's bloated, distended gut. It gets one to wondering about the nature of shape and form.


This one is so gigeresque its scary, he would have loved to have a framed print of that picture I'm sure.

Amazing pics makes you wonder why studios would pay millions of $$ for CGI to produce these same effects for Sci Fi??
