Destination: Sisimiut, Greenland

It is the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, however, not every town has received the memo just yet. Here is a photo taken of the town Sisimiut in Greenland, just a few days ago. While it looks terribly COLD, I’m amazed at how much brightness the sun imparts. It’s strangely beautiful. Enjoy! Miss S.

Pink Lakes

Here is a series of amazing aerial photos taken by Steve Back. They are of the phenomenon called ‘pink lakes’ in Western  and South Australia. They look like abstract paintings more than they do photographs. Just amazing.

‟The cognitive dissonance created by this juxtaposition of the known and unknown invites the viewer to explore their own internal landscape; seemingly familiar, yet on closer inspection often mysterious, surprising and unexplored.” Steve Back

This is glamorous did a post on this series of photos, and explains the phenomenon really well – “The stunning pink and red-hued shots are from the photographer’s ‘Pink Lakes’ series, taken on the foreshore of Hutt Lagoon in Western Australia; the Lagoon is a salt lake with a large population of Dunaliella salina algae, giving it that distinctive red and pink coloration. To survive, these organisms have high concentrations of β-carotene to protect against the intense light, and high concentrations of glycerol for protection against osmotic pressure.  Hutt Lagoon is currently used as a Dunaliella salina algae farm, making it one of the largest micro algae production plants in the world.  The pink pigment is harvested for use as food colouring in cosmetics and as a source of Vitamin A in health supplements.”

Hope you enjoy ‘falling into’ these amazing photographs!

I had to share this one with you guys and girls! You learn something new everyday! Just amazing… I really have to start saving my monies in order to get over there!

“A sundog over Sisimiut on a winter morning.

Sundogs form when light passes through ice crystals, bending the light rays, and refracting the sunbeams horizontally.

They are not nearly as common as northern lights, but in many ways just as impressive a phenomenon.

Crazy stuff. And we love it 🙂

‘Roof of the World’

I found this amazing article and photography by Matthieu Paley. He photographs the Kyrgyz people as they go about their daily life in one of the most inhospitable places on earth. The photography is amazing to say the least, and I really hope that he publishes a book in English soon. For now here is a sneak peak of what is in the article, but definitely check it out for yourself!



“It is a harsh, unforgiving existence for the 1,200 Kyrgyz people who live at the end of the remote and inhospitable Wakhan corridor in Afghanistan, a 140-mile-long strip of land surrounded by China, Tajikistan and Pakistan. Less than half of the children there live to see their fifth birthday. And it is commonplace for women to die during childbirth.

There are no doctors and no roads or vehicles. They live so high up there are no trees. In winter, the temperature goes down to 40 degrees below zero, and there are as many as 340 days of freezing weather a year.

They live in near-complete isolation in a place so removed that the Afghan wars never made it this far.”



Enjoy! Miss S.
