  • very simple images yet astounding!

  • they’re all very quiet

  • agree.. you can almost feel the atmospehere on these photos.

  • These really remind me of the film Let the Right One In. Nice atmosphere!

    • Rose

      That was my first thought too! Loved the movie, love these photographs.

    • Gosh, I thought that too. Chilling pictures..

      • i still have to see that movie, my sister recommended it!

    • rachillin

      I haven’t seen this one… but I caught the movie vibe before reading these comments.

  • love the quietness of these photographs.

  • Anny

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw the first photo was a scene from The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, if anyone’s read that.

  • this makes me think of Let the right one in.

  • rachillin

    It reminds me of a movie at first and I expect someone or an animal to walk into the picture.. I really love these for how much it made me think. Maybe I’m just getting greedy with the pipe though, haha!

    They appear kind of lonely after a second look.
    Beautiful

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.
