The Shaybah oil fields burn in the background turning
the sky a deep purple
This horse rolls over and starts scratching its back on the
ground as soon as it is freed of its saddle.
KING PENGUINS IN MOONLIGHT
Every year during moonrise king penguins will gather on
Possession Island to puff their chests and belt out cries as they
look for partners. Not long afterwards they will pair up and join
the crowd as breeding season kicks off.
These dragon dancers put on a show for Double Ten Day,
the annual Taiwanese festival celebrating the fall of China’s last
dynasty. The performance consists of men fighting against a
dragon while surrounded by clouds of purple smoke.
NORTH DAKOTA WIND FARM
This wind turbines generates energy in a wheat field near
Edgeley, North Dakota. Turbines work by converting kinetic
energy from the wind into other forms of energy (mechanical, thermal)
with almost no negative impact on the environment.
CHICAGO CITY LIGHTS
Beneath layers of clouds Chicago lights up the night.
A vast majority of the glow comes from street lamps,
primarily Victoria style lamps that are excellent when it comes to
creating an atmosphere but not very good at harnessing
the brightness of modern bulbs.
GROUP OF SIBERIAN REINDEER
A group of reindeer move through the Siberian snow near
Oymyakon in the USSR as they are herded by a young
girl back towards her family tent.
CAMELS CROSSING THE SAHARA
Taken from above, here you can see a group of camels
crossing the salt flats of Lake Assal in Djibouti. At 512 feet
below sea level this is one of the lowest places on Earth.
Caught surfacing in the warm water of the coast of
Baja California you can see the whale’s baleen plates which
it uses to filter food.
