The doors of Banteay Srey temple, Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Banteay Srey, known as “The Temple of Women”, actually predates Angkor Wat. It’s pinkish hue and its delicate, incredibly detailed carvings help give the temple its name as it’s believed that the carvings are so intricate that only women’s’ delicate hands could have carved them.

Winter solstice: The day the sun stands stillDespite getting less sun than any other day of the year, the winter solstice often isn’t the coldest day of the year.

I just really like the photo.

Hidden in Paradise: Fascinating, Rare Dolphins and Whales You’ve Never Seen Before

Sometimes, it seems, large whales and talking dolphins get all the attention. Yes, we love these animals, too – how can you not? A humpback whale launching itself from the sea like a giant, blubbery rocket and crashing down with a triumphant spray of seafoam can impress even the most curmudgeonly of whale watchers.

But the pantheon of cetaceans includes far more than just our charismatic, coastal kin. Preferring deeper water and diving for more than an hour at a time, some species of whales and dolphins are rarely seen, and seldom studied. These animals slip stealthily between the waves at the surface and retreat into a deep blue world that we still know very little about.

It takes a determined observer to learn the patterns of a pod of dwarf sperm whales, for example, and predict where they’ll surface next.

This is remarkably well done, I really like it.

These carry such an powerful message. When you see an old person you  just think ‘oh, and old man or woman. Ugh, they’re so boring.’ These people are much more than what you see. They’ve had lives, they’ve done and accomplished  many, many things. They’re not just some ‘old person’.

Very impressive concept. Now this is photography!

I love reblogging this when ever it shows up.

Well that opened my eyes a bit. Very thought provoking.
