This goes to Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt (b. Trelawny, 1986), one of the best athletes ever. The guy is out of this World
This incredibly lucky shot was taken on July 23, 2010 near Platte, SD of the storm that dropped the new WORLD RECORD hailstone on Vivian, SD. The new record stone has a diameter of 8 INCHES and weighed in at just under TWO POUNDS. For reference, a regulation size bowling ball has a diameter of around 8.5 inches. I'm glad I stayed out of that hail core!
My girlfriend (NYT best-selling author of The Stormchasers and Those Who Save Us, Jenna Blum) and I made a last minute decision to make a chase detour into South Dakota while on our way to Minnesota from Kansas after looking at some forecast models. We were late to get to the storm and this was the very first picture I took that day, while hanging out the window. The exposure was 1/30th second so I was extremely lucky to get a lightning bolt in there.
Shot with a 10.2 MP Nikon D40x with a 10-20mm Sigma wide angle lens.

On December 9 Australian landscape photographer Peter Lik set the record for the most expensive photograph when his work, “Phantom,” (shot in Arizona’s Antelope Canyon) sold for $6.5 million dollars.
Who says you can’t make money in photography?
Help me break Peter Lik’s record-breaking sale by purchasing my photograph that I’ll simply call, “Cortés’ Cuernavaca.” My capture of Hernán Cortés palace in Cuernavaca, Mexico during the blue hour will make a great Christmas gift!
I accept all major credit cards, PayPal and cash in a large, brown envelope.
For the lucky buyer I will even have Santa Claus deliver your large framed print in person just in time for Christmas!
The city of Cuernavaca (kwehr-nah-vah-kah), the capital of Morelos state, is where Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés called home while “residing” in Mexico and built his enormous palace-fortress (now the Museo de Cuauhnáhuac) that now occupies the city zocalo (plaza).
The Aztecs called the city Cuauhnáhuac (“place by the woods”) and the Spaniards changed the name to Cuernavaca (“cow horn”) because they had a hard time pronouncing Cuauhnáhuac.
Merry Christmas my Flickr friends!

This is Nazaré seen from the spot where Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara became famous worldwide. A typical seaside village 124km (77 miles) north from Lisbon, Nazaré has become a popular tourist attraction thanks to the very high breaking waves produced by the Nazaré Canyon, an impressive undersea canyon just off the coast – it has a maximum depth of at least 5,000 metres (16,000 ft) and 230 kilometres (140 miles) long.
Back in November 2011, McNamara surfed here a record breaking giant wave: 24 meters (78 feet) from trough to crest. In January 2013 it was reported that he successfully rode a wave measuring a maximum estimate of 30 meters (100 feet) at the same location, and possibly exceeding the size of his previous record-breaking wave
Until not too long ago, Nazare’s fishermen were still seen using oxen to pull their brightly painted boats from the ocean and even today many locals still wear their characteristic traditional costumes - the fishermen have check shirts and trousers and the women wear several layers of petticoats. The fishing boats are Phoenician in design with bright colors and eyes painted on the vessels, supposedly with the magical power to avert storms
The airport building used to be the largest building (1.6 km long). It was mostly spared from the bombings during WW II because the allied forces intended to use it after defeating Germany. At Tempelhof airfield, Frenchman Armand Zipfel performed his first airshow in 1909 and Orville Wright beat world records by flying 172 meters high and 95 minutes long.

We are proud to be a part of the first light painting Guinness World Records title! Last summer, Johnny traveled to Virginia with eleven other light painters from all over the country. The group met to attempt setting a Guinness World Record for most light painted orbs in a photo. This past week, we received the official word that we GOT THE RECORD TITLE - 200 ORBS!

Residents construct large umbrella?
The possibilities are endless on this one...truth is I headed out for a sunset shot and came across two guys blowing giant (as in 40 ft long!) bubbles and I decided to stay there and take pictures with them against the Seattle skyline. They are working hard to get into the Guiness Book of World Records so wish them luck!

Where’s Wally World Record
Following the successful Space Hopper World Record which I photographed last year, today the SPWC (Street Performance world Championship) took on an even more ambitious world record attempt in the Where's Wally World Records.
Tens of thousands of festival goers dressed as Wally in an attempt to break the record and become the largest gathering of Wallys ever!
A super high resolution photograph was taken from a crane capturing all the Wallys and creating the first ever real-life Where's Wally picture which will be posted online as well as being included in the Irish Times on Monday. However, if you cannot wait have a look at my photographs and see if you can spot yourself.
As a kid I was addicted to make microsized things.. from paper, wood(my fingers
were always cut) aso.
One day I even achieved to make an almost worldrecord sized paper ship.. 2mm small!
I was upset to read that there was someone already who made a papership that sized
but also a bit proud. However, that papership is no more... it simply vanished(along with a
paperplane with a spanwidth of 2mm) in the glas bottle I kept(decayed?) :(
However.. I lately saw a picture here on flickr showing some really small origami
figures... and so I'M BACK ;) Well.. not that small anymore but anyway...
BTW: that's my miniature fig tree in the background :)
