A composite image of Jupiter and the Galilean moons, taken as the weather permitted over the past few months. This image is about 25% of the actual size, so the patterns of the moons are harder to see, but visible enough to still be dramatic (IMO).

Since I am on a roll, check this out, no high resolution pictures this time, but I like everything about the concept.
Designed by a team of experts in sustainable design and technologies, the house showcases more than fifty environmentally friendly systems, technologies, and products, including: passive and active solar energy systems, natural, recycled and non-toxic building materials and construction, straw-bale walls, radiant flooring, permaculture landscaping, and so forth. The Center's exhibits explain all the housing model's features, including how they differ from traditional systems, their cost-effectiveness, and their payback periods. The Center, located on 55 acres of land owned by the Nickerson House Community Center, is open to the public during scheduled events.

National Geographic posts pictures of the day. I prefer the pictures taken far away from metropolitan areas, i.e., in rural or wild areas.

Here is a picture taken on the steppes of Mongolia.

Hmm... Red Bull is promoting this, I love the concept, but not Red Bull, lol.
The promoters believe this is the next step for skiing competition. We will have to wait and see.




and this, Dream Lines Part III - Wingsuit proximity by Jokke Sommer, this is wingsuit taken to a whole new level, this is just sick...

I've had my new camera for a week now. Nikon D5100 with a standard 18-55 lens and an additional 55-300 lens.
Here's a picture of the two goofballs that love to hang out in my yard.

There is a ledge on my patio where doves build their nests. Things always a got a bit messy in the area.

I thought I had solved the problem by putting a decorative bowl on the ledge so that there wouldn't be enough space for a nest.
