Viewing terrace. Tanguá Park, Curitiba, PR, Brazil.

 

This park was inaugurated in 1996, the Tanguá Park surprises with its beauty as an example of urban space being re-utilized - on one old complex of disactivated quarries -, and it is part of the Barigüi river preservation project joining Tingüi and Barigüi parks. This park with an area of 450 thousand square meters has two quarries connected by a 45 meter tunnel that may be crossed on foot by a path over the water. It can be visited by boat or on foot (hiking). The park has a cooper and bicycle track, snack bar, belvedere and Poty Lazzarotto garden.

Repost: fotowedstrijd Utrechts Landschap gewonnen. Deze foto komt in, en wellicht op de cover van hun kwartaalblad. Trots:-) I won a photocompetition with this photo. The photo will be published in (and maybe even as the cover of) the magazine of Utrechts Landschap. The organization that protects nature in the province I live.

This is a precious little boy with his favorite toy, a bicycle. Peruvian families appreciate what they have. The boy was quite intrigued with my camera, and I am proud of this photo. Amazon CARES is an organization that deals with public health and children´s education issues as well as animal rescue.

  

Esto es un chico muy pobre con su juguete favorito, una bicicleta. Las familias peruanas aprecian lo que ellos tienen.

Slow down, and take a minute to smell the plastic flowers.

 

Explored #281 thank you all so much!

 

I was also wondering, if you would do me the tiniest little favour and vote for me in this photocompetition? All you have to do is click in here, and click the blue vote button on the right, with the facebook-looking thumb, and if I'm lucky I might win a Canon EOS 5d and a trip to New York! I would be forever grateful if you voted for me <3

Yes I'm still busy..

 

But I won my first real photocompetition! At least, I'm in the last eight nominees and I am proud with that :D

 

The competition is from the local newspaper and it was about the renewal from Groningen. I entered this photo

[Worn smooth after centuries of foot traffic, the stone] ramp inside the first northern buttress leads to the upper galleries that overlook the nave [of Hagia Sophia]. The view of the nave becomes all the more splendid from the top making it an exhilarating experience altogether. Certain sections of these galleries were exclusively reserved for the Empress and the other ladies of the court while other parts of the gallery were used for meetings of the Church council. The center of the upper gallery was the domain of the Empress, and was known as the Loge of the Empress. The place where the throne of the Empress stood is marked by a round, green stone. The royal ladies would sit there and watch the proceedings that took place below.

 

The galleries were richly decorated with mosaics which depicted various religious fables. Some of the best preserved ones can be seen in the southern side of the gallery. The Deesis is one such mosaic, which probably dates back to 1261. and is situated in the Imperial enclosure of the upper gallery, [...].

 

The Hagia Sophia of Istanbul was converted to a museum by none other than its first President, Ataturk, as a tribute to the Republic of Turkey in 1935.

Lightning is an atmospheric discharge of electricity accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms, and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms.[1] In the atmospheric electrical discharge, a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 60,000 m/s (220,000 km/h), and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C (54,000 °F), hot enough to fuse silica sand into glass channels known as fulgurites which are normally hollow and can extend some distance into the ground.[2][3] There are some 16 million lightning storms in the world every year.[4]

 

Lightning can also occur within the ash clouds from volcanic eruptions, or can be caused by violent forest fires which generate sufficient dust to create a static charge.[1][5]

 

How lightning initially forms is still a matter of debate:[6] Scientists have studied root causes ranging from atmospheric perturbations (wind, humidity, friction, and atmospheric pressure) to the impact of solar wind and accumulation of charged solar particles.[4] Ice inside a cloud is thought to be a key element in lightning development, and may cause a forcible separation of positive and negative charges within the cloud, thus assisting in the formation of lightning.[4]

Shortlisted for the 2014 Park Photography Competition

Category: 'Parks are for People'

Description: My favourite season in Calderstones Park is Autumn

Location: Calderstones Park

 

Late last year, for the first time in my life, I joined a photo competition, an open category nation-wide one. I never expect to win anything. Very very tough challenge pitting my small simple point & shoot camera (a Canon A630) against those pro, semi-pro & serious hobbyists with their big powerful DSLR. The results were announced on 26th Feb this year. There were over 8000 entries for the open category and only 63 were selected as winners. Imagine my utter surprise and joy when against all odds, my photo won a Merit Award!

What did I won? Beside the glory, S$100 cash(cheque), a Nikon CoolPix L21, a certificate and a 5R photo of my entry.
