Falls Creek Falls

Though possessing a name which may suggest a less interesting (albeit fitting) subject, Falls Creek Falls is among the largest and most powerful waterfalls in southern Washington. Fed by an extensive network of springs and streams originating on the Red Mountain plateau - itself a product of the volcanic eruptions which created nearby Big Lava Field - Falls Creek sends a considerable volume of water hurtling 335 feet over its valley's headwall in three distinct steps. The upper tier veils 109 feet in a broad fan-shaped fall which skips down the initial tier of the cliff. Shortly after, the creek spreads out to a breadth of over 100-feet across a gently domed ledge and plunges 135 feet in several segments. After gathering through a cluster of large boulders which have fallen off the adjacent cliffs, the third tier leaps a final 91-feet into a narrow amphitheater gorge. Shortly downstream of the falls are a series of sliding cascades as well, though views of which are harder to come by (we did not include these cascades with the height of the falls).

The Breathtaking Video of "The Mountain"

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide Mountain. Spain´s highest mountain at 3718m is one of the best places in the world to photograph the shining stars and the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories. The main object was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most astonishing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and perhaps less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies. A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert at approx. 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

Interestingly plenty of my cameras were set for a five hour sequence of the Milky Way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you’ve ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm. This is really breathtaking work, can't even explain this. This is complete video, with amazing & perfect soundtrack, the quality of your images are just incredible, it really shows what a gorgeous world we have and most of the time we don’t even realize. We loved it; I consider this a gorgeous masterpiece. Wish you the best dude, keep on with this talent.

Bioluminescent Forest

The projection mapping "bioluminescent forest" is made by artists Friedrich van Schoor and Tarek Mawad. The talented artists spent more than six weeks in the forest captivated by the silence and natural occurrences in nature, especially the phenomenon "bioluminescence". They personified the forest to accentuate the natural beauty by creating luring luminescent plants and glowing enchanted mushrooms that speaks volumes to any visitor that enters the minds of the artists through viewing "bioluminescent forest".

Breathtaking Beauty of Planet Earth

Absolutely amazing video on Nature, it is believed, this videos has one of best video ever filmed on Nature, contains breathtaking beauty. Without any doubt our earth is extremely beautiful and modern activities are destroying the real beauty of planet earth. Everyone has to play their part to keep the earth clean and save them with utmost efforts. Moreover in the end cameraman has done an excellent job. Check out this great video.

Crepuscular Rays

Crepuscular rays are also called as “Sun rays” in atmospheric optics, are actually rays of sunlight that appear to radiate from the point in the sky where the sun is located. These rays, which stream through gaps in clouds mainly stratocumulus or between other objects, are columns of sunlit air separated by darker cloud-shadowed regions. In spite of seeming to converge at a point, the rays are actually fact near-parallel shafts of sunlight, and their apparent convergence is a perspective effect alike, i.e., to the way that parallel railway lines seem to converge at a point in the distance.

The name comes from their frequent occurrences during twilight hours those around dawn and dusk, when the contrasts in the middle of light and dark are the most obvious. The name “Crepuscular” comes from the Latin word "Crepusculum", which means twilight. The rays in some cases may spread across the sky and appear to converge at the antisolar point, the point on the sky sphere directly opposite the sun. In this case they’re called anticrepuscular rays. These are not as easily spotted as crepuscular rays. This apparent dual convergence to both the solar and antisolar points is a perspective effect analogous to railway tracks appearing to converge to opposite points in opposite directions.

Crepuscular rays are frequently red or yellow in appearance since the path through the atmosphere at sunrise and sunset passes through up to 40 times as much air as rays from a high midday sun. However; particles in the air scatter short wavelength light blue and green through Rayleigh scattering much more strongly than longer wavelength yellow and red light.

Unearthly Photographs of a Fall Day in Montreal

Well, those peoples who’re living in Montreal are must be used too with extreme weather changes but not many may have seen them such freezing, and coldness scenes after sun rising.  Therefore; in the middle of the fall season a cold front hit and with the winds blowing created something otherworldly.
Initially you had a glimpse of it from the other side of the canal. You can observe the trees are fully covered in ice and with the sun setting, as it would be quite unique instance. So, the next you’ve to be braved the cold and made your way there. The water sprayed through the air with the strong winds causing me to clean the lens every few seconds but perhaps I managed to get the shots. Dejectedly, no frost giants found.Source: Boredpanda
