Non lontano dalla spiaggia di Playa El Golfo, si trova una delle attrazioni più singolari di Lanzarote, isola straordinariamente ricca di peculiarità e di forti caratteristiche identitarie dal punto di vista naturalistico.


Si tratta del Lago Verde, un nome straordinariamente anonimo per un paesaggio così suggestivo.

Il Lago Verde è spesso definito come un simbolo di Lanzarote per il suo essere simbiotico nei confronti delle due forze naturali che hanno generato e scolpito l’isola nel corso dei millenni: il vulcano e l’acqua marina.

La laguna è stata generata da un antico cratere vulcanico sprofondato sotto il suo peso, nella cui cavità è confluita acqua marina.

Organismi vegetali marini ed alghe hanno potuto prosperare nel pur ridotto spazio del lago grazie alla presenza dei sali minerali di origine vulcanica. Tale presenza vegetale ha donato al laghetto il caratteristico colorito verde intenso.

Il contrasto tra la oscura roccia vulcanica circostante e il verde profondo del lago costituiscono quasi un’iride, un occhio verde che affascina e ammalia con il suo sguardo.

Start enjoying the lyrical movements and be relaxed :)

I had too much fun playing with this one in Photoshop to not post it. I thought it was a fun change up to the water drop series...

Fragment Of Nature-Krka National Park/Croatia

The longer one is alone, the easier it is to hear the song of the earth.

• Robert Anton Wilson

Wandering across the sunlit sands looking for inspiration. I don't know why certain compositions catch the eye, but the rippled edge of this pool attracted me. Shooting a setting sun can be such a calming experience, so Earth to Calm by Scott Matthews is a fine title.

Up flowery stairways of eternity

I whirled in wonder and untrammeled joy,

An atom, yet a portion of His dream—

His dream that knows no end. . . .

I was the rain,

I was the dawn, I was the purple east,

I was the moonlight on enchanted nights,

(Yet time was lost to me); I was a flower

For one to pluck who loved me; I was bliss,

And rapture, splendid moments of delight;

And I was prayer, and solitude, and hope;

And always, always, always I was love.

From Beyond the Stars by Charles Hanson Towne (Nov 1912)

Saturday Self-Challenge April 22, 2017:

Today is Earth Day, so the subject for the challenge will be Earth Day related, such as beautiful landscapes, wild animals, flowers and trees, and anything else related to the environment. Processing is fine ....


"Earth Day" is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment. My only hope is that most people will start to understand that we must change our ways and that we must protect our "home".


A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.

― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

"The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself." ~ Chief Seattle /Si'ahl, 1854

Impressions of India – 25


While travelling through North India, we stayed in Fort Barli, in the village of Barli, in the state of Rajasthan. I had read that at a nearby lake, named “Dev Sagar”, I could observe a variety of birds. So after arriving at Fort Barli, we went for a walk around the lake. It is a beautiful lake and we did encounter several bird species. But we also saw a lot of garbage in and around the lake. The stench was quite strong at times. It seems that the lake is used as a dump by the local people. We saw running shoes, plastic bottles, jerry cans, various household items, tires, etc. in and around it.

On this Earth Day, I thought it was fitting to post this picture to remind us that our individual actions have a collective impact on the Earth. One person throwing one small thing in a lake can almost seem harmless in itself, but when hundreds of people do the same, the effect can be devastating. Every action matters.

Happy Earth Day!

No… this is not a Panorama, a Vertorama, or a Multirama. This is a Croporama… cropping a single image so that it looks like a panorama!


Heh heh... this was the easiest “Rama” that I’ve ever processed! :)

The green earth has a stubborn streak for survival. It was born from a violent Big Bang explosion in the universe some four billion years ago & since then continuously evolved to pulsate with life in one form or the other. As illustrated by this diminutive tuft of grass, which glows to live another beautiful day on the ever encroaching sand dunes of the Namib Desert, the earth has the desire to live till the sun exhausts all it's Hydrogen.


Are we Homosapiens, the most intelligent species on earth helping the earth's desire to live? Do we want to preserve the green "Oxy-Generators" tree cover around us or convert everything into a Concrete Desert?


Think..... & then Act on it.
