Horsetail Fall at Sunset by Michael Frye via npr: 'The waterfall is perched high on an open cliff where it can catch light from the sunset — but not just any sunset. "It's this brief window of light around the third week of February where the sun sets at just the right angle to light Horsetail Fall just as it's sinking," Frye says.' #Photography #Yosemite #Horsetail_Fall #Sunset

  • Ninette Beheler

    this is amazing. im wondering if you couldnt expand the concept to creating a device that can be adhered to the outside of the jaw. i clench my jaw at night and just hate those mouth guards. im wondering iif it might be possible for u to create a biofeedback device so i could tell when im clenching my jaw so i can train myself to not do that

    This has huge medical potential. Imagine how much better diagnostics could be.

  • Lauren Perry

    So interesting! I'd volunteer as a test subject for sure. People are always scared of the newest technology (and they always get over it eventually).

  • Felicia Gill

    Imagine a blood glucose monitoring system for diabetics that's as simple as a contact.

Magicicada periodical cicada by alexanderwild: Characterized by red compound eyes, cicadas in the genus Magicicada spend 17 years (or, more rarely, 13 years) maturing underground before emerging en masse to mate. These emergences take place in May or June and involve several species, each with a different song. boingboing.net/... #Insects #Periodical_Cicada #Magicicada #Brood_III

    Until they fly up your maxi dress!

  • Elise Lambson

    Also, when they dive bomb you, when they are so loud you can't sleep, when they are so prevalent everywhere that you can hardly walk without crunching them underfoot, they are not quite so amazing. Living the cicada experience is not very pleasant.

  • Brandi

    Truth.

  • Jill Vanderweit

    You're all absolutely right - they are crazy noisy and inside your car vents and find their way into your underwear drawer and your cat brings them inside to play with them and little boys eat them as a dare, etc. But they're not on the east coast this year, so I can pretend to feel sentimental about them! (Ah well, they'll be gone soon and the birds will be fatter this summer!)

  • Carole Berreur

    To me, they're equal to south of France (so, holidays, sun and fun). So, I love them! :)

  • Kaeli Mitchell

    Yup. All I have to say is: Damn that's huge.

  • John R.

    There's 3 guys 1 on top in orange 1 right above the bottom branch in yellow and 1 guy on the ground

  • Christina Mott

    This image blows me away every time I see it! The tree is so big they couldn't fit it all in one photo, so this is a composite of the 126 pictures they took.

    This puts things into perspective, doesn't it?

    We experienced one a few summers ago in Maryland. Very frightening to be in that storm!

    I remember that storm, I was living in Alexandria, Va. Thought it was a tornado at first.

    So glad i live in a dark city. :)

    Without seeing the creation why would people search for the creator.

  • Dorothy Designs

    The San Francisco one is inaccurate. You can't see stars through the fog here.

  • Gina DeLaune

    Favorite memory- camping out on a trail ride away from all cities! I could actually see the milky way-- Don't remember ever seeing it until this time. Very inspiring. I sat on the hood of my car and watched for most of the night.

  • Cathleen Bowne

    After hurricane Wilma the stars you could see in south Florida were amazing (there was no electricity south of the Orlando area.
