We recently got back from mid-coast Maine, and I miss it.  Here are some flowers from the trip . . .

rhododendrons outside our front door – there are some big bumblebees in there

foxgloves across the road

peonies (actually from New Hampshire)

Some exuberant elderberry bushes from our nature center at home

Animal, vegetable or mineral . . .

March 19, 2020

In an enchanting new video titled “Waiting to Be Found,” Dan Hoopert dives into the details within Earth’s minerals. The United Kingdom-based designer highlights the sprawling crystallization process as it expands within each deposit and alters its colors. One piece even grows a sparkling mass off its left side.

Hoopert’s project is based on a 2019 article in Earth, which states that the International Mineralogical Association recognizes more than 5,000 distinct minerals, including well-known silicates and carbonates that are frequently found in masses around the world. “Most are documented based on just a few known occurrences. It’s unlikely that scientists will stumble across many new finds of singularly abundant minerals on Earth, but numerous rare minerals are probably yet to be discovered,” the article says. In the last decade, about 1,000 new species were added to the association’s growing list.

The designer brought the project to life using 3D special effects software Houdini and Redshift. For more of his imaginary explorations of natural processes, follow him on Instagram and Behance.

Why am I looking up?

January 16, 2020

“When the Sun is in the right position and, typically, hidden from direct view, these thin clouds can be seen significantly diffracting sunlight in a nearly coherent manner, with different colors being deflected by different amounts. Therefore, different colors will come to the observer from slightly different directions. Many clouds start with uniform regions that could show iridescence but quickly become too thick, too mixed, or too angularly far from the Sun to exhibit striking colors.

The featured image and an the video were taken late last year over Ostersund, Sweden.”

I thought this was interesting

This is an article about restoration of the peat bogs of Scotland and how the bogs contribute to sequestering carbon from the atmosphere.  The photography is amazing.  Have you ever seen a red deer in the wild?

Why am I saying, “Life imitates art?”

November 8, 2018

 

Actors from the Italian theater company Ludovica Rambelli Teatro recreate paintings by Italian painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, or, more accurately, they’re recreating how Caravaggio created scenes to paint with live models. The performance is called La conversione di un cavallo, 23 Tableaux Vivants dalle opere di Caravaggio, or Tableaux Vivants. It’s set to Lux aeterna, the final section of Wolfgang Amedeus Mozart’s Requiem.
