Check out this incredible photo of a diver under the ice in the White Sea, with the ice lit up by the aurora borealis:

Image

From the photo's caption at the Telegraph (UK): "Irish photographer George Karbus went to extraordinary lengths to capture this image in bitterly cold waters of Russia's White Sea in the Arctic Circle. George, 33, his girlfriend and a friend ventured out from the shore, cut a hole in the foot-thick ice and took the plunge. He dipped below his girlfriend Kate Hamsiaora - who was swimming some six metres under the ice - to get this beautiful shot while the the aurora borealis illuminated the night sky."

Hey, those are cool.

I was wondering what they would look like from other angles ... so it was neat to see that they'd included one where they took pictures from both the "right" and "wrong" viewing angle.....

These are paintings, not chalk drawings and not photos, but extraordinary ones.

In the old Elvehjem Museum there used to be a great Trompe-l'œil painting in their permanent collection. Don't know if it is still on display at the Chazen.

Amazing. The ability to do that is a superpower all it's own.

I can’t compare with the wonderful artwork shared here, so I’ll just go the cheesy route.

I’m not only APF with EST, but I’m also an HSP.

’Night,” she said, her voice a whisper, “and dream of snow angels dancing in the snow.”

“There are all kinds of angels in Heaven, Mom. The snow angel is God’s own special answer to make sure that snow falls just right so that children will have a wonderful winter world to marvel at.”

My Grandpa Z had the thickest, most beautiful head of white hair.
I saw a Christmas cactus today that reminded me of him. I wish I could have kept it alive. I think he had it for over 25 years. I did get it to bloom a few times before I let it go.

May Iris be with you [or may Iris in peace].

The first video is pretty cheesy.

The others rock.

And this guy:

Made with about 2.1 million dots(stippling) There is also an interesting story about this particular portrait and it's subject:

In 2004 an unconscious man was discovered behind a fast food restaurant in Richmond Hill, Georgia. He had no belongings, severe sunburn, and was nearly blind from cataracts. The man also had absolutely no idea who he was. After months of ongoing evaluation from doctors and psychologists it was determined he was suffering from dissociative amnesia...

Mount Everest, in 3.8 billion pixels

It's a navigable picture that I couldn't directly post.
