The following is but a small sample of the amazing individuals whom have so eloquently given us something to think about in regards to this planet we all share.

Their visual and artistic prowess and their ability to capture a moment in time is second to none.

I would encourage you to lock this link into your favourites. There are literally hundreds of images from all around the world and the site is updated regularly.

Enjoy.............

THE EARTHQUAKE ROSE

On February 28, 2001, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake, located some thirty miles (48 km) below the surface of the Earth moved the ground for a bit more than half a minute. Damage was surprisingly light on account of the epicenter’s depth. A sand tracing pendulum located at a shop in Port Townsend, Washington, called Mind Over Matter (since moved to Sedona, Arizona), produced some very interesting patterns.
The smooth curves you see on the outside are what you normally see when someone sets the pendulum in motion. The seismic activity is responsible for the rose-shaped pattern you see in the middle. A beautiful design by one of nature’s most powerful forces.



THE FALLEN GIANT

In this awesome capture we get a real sense of the size of these Coast Redwood trees (Sequoia sempervirens). The photograph, shot by Redditor thecynicroute, was taken at the Avenue of the Giants, a scenic highway in northern California that runs through Humboldt Redwoods State Park.



THE WORLDS BIGGEST BONFIRE

To see the world’s biggest bonfire you’ll have to visit Alesund, Norway, where wood pallets are stacked over 40 meters (131 ft) high on an artificial island. The occasion? Sankthans, or ‘Midsummer’, an annual festival in commemoration of John the Baptist’s birth.



THE STRONGEST ARTIFICIALLY GENERATED TORNADO IN THE WORLD

Photograph by Mercedes-Benz Passion Located in Stuttgart, Germany, the Mercedes-Benz Museum is home to the ‘strongest artificially generated tornado in the world’ according to the Guinness Book of World Records. However the purpose of the 34.4 meter high (112.86 ft) may surprise you.



A BEAUTIFUL IGLOO

New Zealander and recent civil engineering graduate Daniel Gray travelled north to Edmonton, Canada to spend five weeks with his girlfriend and her parents for the holidays. To keep him occupied (and perhaps test his resolve) his girlfriend’s mother thought it might be a fun idea to build an igloo.



SUNRISE AT EASTER ISLAND

Photograph by Pierre Lesage In this stunning aerial photograph by Pierre Lesage we see Easter Island at sunrise. Lesage specializes in kite aerial photography (KAP). This particular photo was taken with a Ricoh GX 200 camera with a Wide Angle converter.



CHARLIES FREEZER FRIDAYS

Charlie Layton is a freelance designer and illustrator based in Philadelphia, USA. Every Friday, Layton doodles on his fridge with a dry erase marker. Dubbed ‘Freezer Fridays’, Layton uploads his weekly doodles to an album on Facebook for his friends to enjoy.



ROCK BALANCING

Michael Grab is an artist that has been ‘rock balancing‘ since 2008. Much of his recent work has been done around the Boulder, Colorado area. Grab finds the process both spiritual and therapeutic. On his site gravityglue.com, Grab explains: “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on.
Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another.



DIAMOND IN THE SKY

Photograph by Alex Cherney | Prints Available On November 14, 2012, a total solar eclipse was experienced on Ellis beach between Cairns and Port Douglas in Queensland, Australia. Right before the eclipse, photographer Alex Cherney took this beautiful capture of the last direct rays of sunlight



TA PROHM TEMPLE, CAMBODIA

Photograph by Peter Nijenhuis Ta Prohm is the modern name of a temple at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and originally called Rajavihara. Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom



CROP CIRCLES IN THE SNOW

Simon Beck is an artist from Southern England that uses snowshoes to create giant land art in the snow. Most of his work takes place in the ski resort of Les Arcs in the French Alps where Beck has a chalet and spends most of his winters. After planning the initial design on paper using a protractor and ruler, each piece takes Simon about 10 hours to complete.
