The photo above shows the amazing arrays of ice spheres that accumulated along Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore on the northeastern shore of Lake Michigan in late February. They’re about size of basketballs and weigh up to 50 pounds. The balls tend to form where water turbulence breaks up a layer of slush. Mattes of slush and frazil ice accrete in the turbulent, supercooled water. Where the wave action is strongest, typically near-shore, slush and frazil evolve into spherical lumps.
Massive ice boulders, estimated to weigh up to 75 pounds each, have washed ashore in northern Michigan. Hundreds of the stunning ice formations were found along a 100-foot stretch of coast at the Sleeping Bear Dunes national park. . Experts believe the giant ice balls broke off of ice floating in Lake Michigan and were rounded by the wind and waves.

The abused circus elephants who were reunited at an elephant sanctuary after 25 years apart.Such an amazing story!
The abused circus elephants who were reunited at an elephant sanctuary after 25 years apart. This is true friendship.
<3<3<3 An beautiful story! A show called "The Urban Elephant", tells the story of the long journey and the absolute joy these two crippled elephants showed when finally being reunited. It was one of the most moving stories I've ever seen. Bring the tissue. You can feel the overwhelming and elated joy of these elephants! The video is on my Video Board. If you ever come across one of those people who claim animals don't have emotions similar to ours, please show them this.
Elephant love this just warms the heart so much! they are the most amazing animals to me.
beautiful story - elephants are the most emotional animals on earth. I would do the same thing if I had not been able to be with my best friends for 25 years....

This grouping of five galaxies 280 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus is known as Stephan's Quintet. Four of the five galaxies are experiencing a violent merger, where they crash into one another an eventually form one galaxy. Though it looks like the central blue galaxy is part of this clan, this is an illusion. It is actually a foreground galaxy only about 40 million light-years away.

Friday, September 7, 2012: Adam Block of the Mount Lemmon SkyCenter in Arizona produced this photo of Stephan’s Quintet in July 2012. The five galaxies of the quintet include NGC 7319, 7318A, 7318B, and 7317, all yellowish in color. They can be seen interacting with each other about 300 million light-years from Earth. Bluish NGC 7320 lies closer than the other four, at a distance of only 40 million light years.
Whoa! This grouping of five galaxies 280 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus is known as Stephan's Quintet. Four of the five galaxies are experiencing a violent merger, where they crash into one another an eventually form one galaxy.

Reflection of trees on a lake. The colors are beautiful.
Bare branches. This photo portrays tranquil relaxation. It should be shown in a meditation or yoga room. Also works well in a master suite or library. Any place that you want to get away from it all.

Lightning strikes over the Puyehue volcano, over 500 miles south of Santiago, Chile, Monday June 6. Authorities have evacuated about 3,500 people in the nearby area. The volcano was calm on Monday, two days after raining down ash and forcing thousands to flee, although the cloud of soot it had belched out still darkened skies as far away as Argentina (© Photo by Francisco Negroni/AgenciaUno/Associated Press)
