Extinction of the dinosaurs. Computer artwork of a group of dinosaurs and flying reptiles fleeing a vast fire. This may have been caused by a volcanic eruption or meteorite impact. Such events have occurred before in Earth’s history, and will do so again. Both events can trigger a lowering of global temperatures as clouds of dust and ash reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the surface. Plant and then animal life dies off. The mass loss of life that included the extinction of the dinosaurs took place some 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period. The flying reptiles here are Pteranodons, and the quadraped dinosaur are sauropods called Titanosaurs.

Switzerland holidays: A dive in Nature and Winter!

Switzerland holidays: A dive in Nature and Winter!

Known for its natural panoramic sceneries, Switzerland is a very beautiful country. People often quote it as one of the most unique countries of the world and say that if missed, a major piece of nature would remain inexperienced. Switzerland Holidays can be made wonderful by the ease offered by the travel portals that can arrange each and everything that is to be needed in a travel. More and more information can be gathered by the official Switzerland tourism websites and then there is Internet also meeting all information related needs. Sometimes services offered by such travel portals could be highly customized suitable to the individual needs of the traveler.

Also known for the winter sports, one could enjoy in snow as long he wishes to. People are known to invent more and more winter sports that could be enjoyed in snow apart from the traditional games like skiing.  Skiing has evolved with the help of technological advancements in sports. Heliskiing or Heliboarding is known to be a bit controversial (banned in few places already) but still never stops a visitor who wants to feel a bit of adrenalin rush. Then there are tobogganing and skating. Switzerland is deemed more beautiful as winter descends on it. Thus, people generally wish a getaway in form of Switzerland Holidays in winters especially. Switzerland tourism also seems to be promoting winters of this place rather than this place in itself. One could actually come to a decision on his own after paying one visit to the country.

In addition to this there are certain other top attractions of Switzerland tourism. Emmental cheese or simply Swiss cheese and Swiss Chocolates in food are known to everybody whom food interests more than any other thing. Then there is Swiss national Park, Derborence Mountain Lake, Lake Toma, and Nature Park Chateau-d’Oex with nature at its best. A peep in history and culture of Switzerland could be seen in places like San Gottardo Pass, Convent of St. John (Mustair), Mongo (Mountain Church), Gruyeres (a medieval town) and the list goes long adding certain more picturesque places. So once you plan out a Switzerland holiday, don’t forget to make a list of the places you want to visit else time would seem really less and places too many.

So whatever is the time for your Switzerland holidays are planned, Switzerland tourism is always leaves with more yearnings to return!

First In A Long Time

First In A Long Time

Over the past year I’ve struggled to summon the ambition & inspiration to actually work on photos. So this past weekend I finally decided to dust of the old computer, recalibrate the monitor, and transfer the photos that were sitting on my camera. I was surprised to find this shot of a butterfly perched just outside of my kitchen window. I have to admit that it felt nice to dive in and bring out the best of the shot. I don’t know if this will trigger a flurry of flickr activity but I liked this one enough to want to post it.

Storm coming in over the river Murry – South Australia.

Storm coming in over the river Murry - South Australia.

A wild day whilst on our houseboat trip up the River Murray South Australia, this was a combination of a very nasty fire front and the smoke, dust and storm front that was blown our way…the previous photo was sent from my I pad with no adjustments whilst there, I couldn’t wait to get home and upload on my computer and add some color and contrast to the photo as was seen on the day.
I had to remove the old one as it was out of focus and poorly done, prob with old eyes and small screens – lol

An impression from “Interstellar”

An impression from “Interstellar”

According to the ticket computer network of the Korean Film Commission on 18th, the film drew audiences totaling 210,410 people for one day on 17th and it is topped the box office. Total attendance at this movie has topped 5million. It is about a box office hit `Interstellar’

The director has studied the subjects related to this movie at the university for 4 years.

He said that he didn’t want to make an immature and groundless movie. Thus Christopher Nolan worked on this movie.

To make a higher quality movie, it is based on the theory of a possibility of time travel through wormhole of internationalphysicist, Kip Torne’s Physical cosmology.

‘The story of `Interstellar’ goes like this. As the earth became that mencan’t live on, peoplehad to find a new planet to survive. The main character Cooper went into space, leaving his beloved family behind, as a last hope of mankind. He ventured his life in another galaxy through wormhole

In the film, fine dust covers whole earth. Only corn farm survived despite fine dust covered on their labored crops. In fact, not only our country but also other countries struggle with fine dust these days. Is it only fine dust?
The temperature of the earth is getting higher and the ice on polar regions are melting slowly. The marine life is dying from some unknown cause, abnormalityof climate caused mutation of produce, and some people are suffered from the shortage of water. I thought this kind of story can be happened in the future science fiction film in my childhood

But this came into reality already. The message of `Interstellar’ is not just an interesting story. We should do something for stimulating the global environment. We have to change our mindset and we need to make a habit of thinking about the conservation of nature in daily life. In addition, we need to teach our children how to love the nature and make them carry out the idea.

It recalls me a commercial copy that“Nature is not ours but we borrowed it from our future generation.” Today I deeply feel that we need peace not only among people but also peace between people and nature..

A couple…

A couple...

The summer holydays are in its middle and I’ve got a plenty of uneddited photos from vaccation waiting inside my computer and the dust is slowly and softly falling over them. It’s a lazy and busy time and I can’t find enough free moments to edit those photos. At least I had a while today so I prepared this lovely couple of dragon-flies. First of all, I noticed them when I was walking with my cam around a garden. They were in a position so they looked like a heart. I took several shots, but the best one was this and as you may see, they had changed their position a little and they don’t look like a heart anymore… Pitty, it could have been a nice metaphore for love.

Juniper in Soft Focus

Juniper in Soft Focus

Went out in the snow today to take some shots. Wound up at the Sibley Nature Center. This is a shot of some juniper berries on a tree next to the visitor’s center. Used a soft focus on this one, no flash. I thought at first I’d caught some snowflakes in this shot, too, but after wiping off my computer screen… *sigh*

It was just some dust.
