What a view!

Hope your having a lovely day/evening, wherever you may be! I’m currently writing up a post on internet censorship and the true meaning of  neutral states. I hope you will join me for that post (should be up in a day or two), but until thenI thought I would share some views with you, which I am sure you will appreciate!

This second photo is from Sisimiut, Greenland. 40 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. Apparently rainbows are a rare occurrence in Greenland, making it extra special! https://www.facebook.com/ilovegreenland?fref=ts

Enjoy!

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.” http://www.thisisglamorous.com/2013/03/at-gallery-photography-steve-backs.html#more

Hope you enjoy ‘falling into’ these amazing photographs!
