Nature Masterpieces from the Ashes and Snow series by Gregory Colbert
Gregory Colbert is a canadian photographer and director with undeniable talent. With his project Ashes and Snow, he provides us with sepia colored photographs taken during his travels. Images traveling around the world with a nomadic museum, the “Nomadic Museum”.
"In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people saw themselves as part of nature and not outside of it. The destiny of whales cannot be separated from the destiny of man, and the destiny of man cannot be separated from the destiny of all of nature. I am exploring new narratives that help build a bridge across the artificial boundaries we have established between ourselves and other species". Gregory Colbert.
Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow feature film captures extraordinary moments of contact between people and animals as seen through the lens of the artist’s camera on more than thirty expeditions to some of the earth’s most remote places. Written, directed, produced, and filmed by Gregory Colbert, it is a poetic field study that depicts the world not as it is, but as it might be—a world in which the natural and artificial boundaries separating humans from other species do not exist. The viewing experience is one of wonder and contemplation, serenity, and hope.
If you’ve reblogged something I posted and removed my caption which credits the artist, you are an ass.
I hope people steal your art.
Stunning Electric-Blue Flames Erupt From Volcanoes - Olivier Grunewald.
Sulfur combusts on contact with air to create stunning blue lava-like rivers of light in the Kawah Ijen crater on the island of Java.Kawah Ijen is one of several volcanoes situated in a 20 km radius in East Java, Indonesia. The caldera of Kawah Ijen harbors a kilometer-wide, turquoise colored, acidic crater lake that leaks sulphurous gases. At night the hot gases burn to emit an eerie blue glow that is unique to Kawah Ijen. The gases emerge from the cracks in the volcano at high pressure and temperature, up to 600°C, and when they come in contact with the air, they ignite, sending flames up to 16 feet high. Some of the gases condense into liquid sulfur, and continues to burn as it flows down the slopes giving the feeling of blue lava flowing.
I have a serious issue with even numbers, unless they only contain zeros in addition to other digits. So 50 is ok and 55 is ok, but 52 isn’t. 100 is ok and 105 is ok, but 120 isn’t.
I often warn people about it, since I know I am actually capable of throwing a fit over something being an even number, if it’s important or if I have to look at at it for extended periods of time. Some people seem to think this is funny, or that I’m making a big deal out of things that don’t matter. It’s extremely difficult and irritating, trying to explain the extent of your OCD to someone who thinks people with this disorder are walking caricatures.
That’d be all.
