  • Eight years ago, Alex and I were classmates in Rome. Six years ago, we were neighbours in Brooklyn. Unfortunately don’t see much of him these days, but seems he’s always up to a dozen or so new and interesting things, and is always an inspiration. Nice to see him get some Booooooom love.

  • These are great! Thanks for posting, seem like visions we have worried about, but beautiful and reflective.

    Really beautiful. I love the technique, but most of I love the theme and the evidence of past human activity, but the lack of actual humans. Call me sociopathic, but to me these look like really beautiful places. I think the evidence of what (was) todays chaotic western consumerist culture contrasted with the lack of movement after that culture has disappeared makes these pieces seem so much more peaceful, and our existence in the here and now seem so much noisier and aggressive. Really good stuff!

An Elaborate Snow Drawing by Artist Sonja Hinrichsen

Another incredible snow drawing by artist Sonja Hinrichsen (previously featured here)! Made in the snow covering Lake Catamount in Colorado last year, the site-specific piece pays homage to the Yampa River which used to run through the valley.

Helped along by roughly 50 community participants, the group’s route not only coincides with the course the original river took, the abstract designs created from their tracks in the snow mimic the meandering flow of water. See more images of “Yampa River” below!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.
