Fulgarite sculpture - sand melted by lightning strike

Fulgarite is a hollow glass tube or formed when lightning strikes sand. The lightning melts the sand along the fingers of electricity. Fulgarite can be a small glass tube, something that looks more like a piece of corral, so something larger and shaped like old tree roots.
"This is What Happens When Sand Gets Struck by Lightning: Fulgurites are natural hollow glass tubes formed in quartzose sand, silica, or soil by lightning strikes (at 3,270 °F), which instantaneously melts silica on a conductive surface and fuses grains together over a period of around one second. Photographed by Ken Smith." take that Sweet Home Alabama

The one of the largest living organisms ever found has been discovered in an ancient American forest. The Armillaria ostoyae, popularly known as the honey mushroom, started from a single spore too small to see without a mi croscope. It has been spreading its black shoestring filaments, called rhizomorphs, through the forest for an estimated 2,400 years, killing trees as it grows. It now covers 2,200 acres (880 hectares) of the Malheur National Forest, in eastern Oregon.

“Storm Over the Salar de Uyuni” – Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia – Nicholas Leslein – Featured Photographer Nick really captured a special moment in time with this one. This image was featured as the National Geographic “Photograph of the Week” on October 26, 2010. Nick does a great job of describing the experience below so I will let him get right to it. When you are done, go see more of this special place at Nick’s award winning galleries http://www.flickr.com/photos/nleslein/ and http://500px.com/nleslein Take it away Nicholas: This image was captured on December 27th, 2009 at the eastern entrance of the Salar de Uyuni, South America’s largest salt flat, at an altitude of 3,653m (11,984ft). My friend and I were on a three-day Landcruiser tour of southwest Bolivia, and this image was taken on one of our first stops. The salt flat was a photographer’s dream. The salar, being virtually flat, was not tolerant of storms and was already somewhat flooded in the west as this massive storm approached. The companies offering tours of the salt flats encouraged us to reserve our seats and set off as soon as possible. We left within 15 minutes and were rewarded handsomely as the storm descended upon us. My favorite element of this photograph

Aurora borealis, Finland "They wonder why minority females just talk down on White males as if they ain't shit? Beauty lists." -Asha *what is my issue? I don't want to live here. I want to live in an isolated community in Africa where people resemble me. I am tired of being looked down upon and placed in public rejections. These men just watch me fail everytime. And perhaps this is entertaining for them, but I will not deal with Whites; especially when it comes to mating and sex.
Aurora borealis, Finland. Someday I will see the Northern lights. It's basically the only thing on my bucket list!

Levant clouds covering the walls of Gibraltar Rock by Mac Dor
Seen here is a levant cloud forming against the eastern cliffs of the Rock of Gibraltar. The levant is an easterly wind that blows in the western Mediterranean Sea and southern France, an example of mountain-gap wind. In the western Mediterranean, particularly when the wind blows through the Strait of Gibraltar, it is called the Viento de Levante or the Levanter. The Gibraltar levanter cloud requires a very particular set of conditions for its formation.

Cave of Melody, Scotland.---the basalt columns look cool
Scotland, Dike, Dyke, Sea Caves, Fingal Caves, Islands, Inner Hebrid, Places, Travel
Scotland seems like a great place for us to travel to - Fingal’s Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staff, one of the Inner Hebrides islands which skirt the western coast of Scotland. The immense arch-roofed cave creates a melodic, haunting echo of waves within its cathedral-like atmosphere; something so impressive Romantic Poets John Keats, William Wordsworth, and Alfred, Lord Tennyson all made journeys here; as well as Her Majestic Queen Victoria. The cave’s Gaelic name is Uamh-Binn, meaning “cave of melody.” (image by scuba dooba on flickr) “Her Majestic Queen Victoria” Regardless of the honored personages it would be wonderful to get to see a place like this in person. It’s like a patchwork, cobbled together out of stone. No doubt there must be some fantastic myths associated with it.

Hillier Lake, Western Australia: The pink and lovely Hiller Lake is the only vividly pink lake you will find in the world. The color is permanent and never changes, even when water is removed and placed in a separate container. Its startling color remains a mystery and while scientists have proven it's not due to the presence of algae, unlike the other salt lakes down under, they still can't explain why it's pink....
