  • Burstoid

    Love the first one.

  • lapetitefaon

    I thought the first was a painting, seems just so unreal! I really love the attitude in these photos, shots 3 and 4 are great. The little girl photo is really impressive too! She looks so grown up, really captured her.

  • letterpreston

    I love the awkwardness in some of these photos. They draw me in, but I don’t want to get very close.

  • that first one is indeed great!

  • Ale

    HAHA I KNOWW WHEREE THE FIRST ONE IS:D

  • I swear i ate at a place just like that yesterday in Santa barbra. Wish i had my camera!! dang it. Great pics. Great subjects!!

  • I recognize that menu! Acapulco Deli & Restaurant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The “crunch french toast” is the sure giveaway. I used to live two blocks from that joint.

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.
