This is the dome of the water storage facility in Death Valley, CA. In order to light it, I carried two flashlights with flourescent tubes shielded from the camera lens. I walked all over the dome holding my breath because the dome was springy, yet spongy underfoot.

 

Rare to get clouds in an exposure at the end of March in Death Valley. These held pretty stationary. 40 minute exposure.

Sorry for the lack of updates, my goal was to post atleast one picture every single day! But this week so far has been extremely hectic, even for me, since I usually find time for flickr regardless of how much schoolwork I need to finish! But I've gotten the major stuff over with, so I can relax for a while...thanks to everyone who commented and gave me support for my pictures...

 

I will comment back each one of you asap!

The King Bolete is a very popular, delicious, meaty mushroom that grows all over the world. It has many names such as king, cep, porcini, steinpilz, penny bun and many others. It is apparently a complex of closely related species with similar looks, habitat, and flavor wherever it is found. It is highly variable in coloration. More study of this group will be required to sort out the variants more accurately. The king is a favorite and familiar mushroom drawn, painted or sculpted by artists. The king is often very large and stately with a thick club shaped stem, thick cap and an impressive kingly appearance.

 

Cap (pileus) 2-10 inches broad or larger, smooth, and quite thick and a bit sticky in damp weather. Convex becoming flat at maturity. The color is quite variable from light brown to reddish brown. It is dense when young becoming a spongy with age. The aroma is pleasant.

 

Pores (hymenophore) Closely spaced small pores are white. The pore layer is quite hard when young and white changing to yellowish then to pea soup green to greenish brown becoming fairly soft at maturity.

 

Stem (stipe) Very thick and club shaped. When young it is often almost as thick at the bottom as the cap is wide. The stem is usually finely reticulated meaning it has a net shaped raised pattern on the surface. The reticulation is most pronounced near the top. The color can vary from whitish cream to reddish brown. It can become cylindrical at maturity.

 

Flesh The flesh is white and dense in younger specimens becoming softer at maturity. It is generally non-staining and has a pleasant flavor when raw.

Poppies

Mary Oliver

 

The poppies send up their

orange flares; swaying

in the wind, their congregations

are a levitation

 

of bright dust, of thin

and lacy leaves.

There isn’t a place

in this world that doesn’t

 

sooner or later drown

in the indigos of darkness,

but now, for a while,

the roughage

 

shines like a miracle

as it floats above everything

with its yellow hair.

Of course nothing stops the cold,

 

black, curved blade

from hooking forward—

of course

loss is the great lesson.

 

But I also say this: that light

is an invitation

to happiness,

and that happiness,

 

when it’s done right,

is a kind of holiness,

palpable and redemptive.

Inside the bright fields,

 

touched by their rough and spongy gold,

I am washed and washed

in the river

of earthly delight—

 

and what are you going to do—

what can you do

about it—

deep, blue night?

 

EXPLORE

Did anybody get outdoors with that cloud cover in Canberra last night? It was amazing, huge storm clouds WITHOUT the rain to damage the camera. The best I have seen in quite a while.

 

Anyway, not sure why but this photo makes me want to hum "Red Right Hand" by Nic Cave. This was taken at Weston Park a few weeks back. God decided to put on quite the light show this night with red, orange, and yellow hues...

El volcán Kirkjufell o Kirkjuffel es uno de los símbolos del pueblo pesquero de Grundarfjördur. Está presente en todas partes. Por cierto el nombre islandés Kirkjuffel significa “Montaña iglesia” porque si uno se fija bien se verá que se asemeja al tejado de una iglesia. Como curiosidad, esta zona fue frecuentada por marineros daneses en el pasado y le dieron el nombre coloquial de “cima de azúcar” (the sugar top) por su apariencia esponjosa cuando la cumbre está nevada.

________________________________________________

The Kirkjufell or Kirkjuffel volcano is one of the symbols of the fishing village of Grundarfjördur. It is present in all parts. By the way, the icelandic name Kirkjuffel means "mountain church" because if you look carefully you will see that it looks like the roof of a church. As a curiosity, this area was frequented by Danish sailors living in the past and gave it the name of "Top of sugar" by its appearance spongy when the summit is covered with snow.

Latin name: Sarcophaga carnaria

Size: Approx 15mm long

Distribution: Found throughout the U.K.

Months seen: All year round. More frequently seen in summer months.

Habitat: Gardens and around buildings

Food: Larvae feed on carrion/dung. Adults feed on just about any liquid they can soak up with their spongy mouthparts

Special features: Flesh-flies have black and gray longitudinal stripes on the thorax and black and white checker markings along the abdomen.

The eggs are laid on rotting carcasses, or dung in some species. The larvae (maggots) reach their full size in just a few days, then burrow into the soil to pupate through the winter. They emerge as adult flies in the summer...."

Spatterdock, Yellow cow lily, Yellow pond lily commonly found in the southeastern part of the US. Spatterdock plants grow in shallow water and are rooted in the mud. They have large heart-shaped leaves, usually 4–16 inch across with wavy margins. The floating leaves are attached to long, stout stems which arise from large, spongy roots. The flowers are 1–2 inches across and held above the water by their stout stems, "half-opened" at or above the water surface...

The leaf is composed of layers of cells. The spongy mesophyll layer is normally infused with gases, oxygen and carbon dioxide. Leaves (or disks cut from leaves) will normally float in water because of these gases. If you draw the gases out from the spaces, then the leaves will sink because they become more dense than water. If this leaf disk is placed in a solution with an alternate source of carbon dioxide in the form of bicarbonate ions, then photosynthesis can occur in a sunken leaf disk. As photosynthesis proceeds, oxygen accumulates in the air spaces of the spongy mesophyll and the leaf becomes buoyant and floats. Oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged through openings in the leaf called stoma.

 

While this is going on, the leaf is also carrying out cellular respiration. This respiration will consume the oxygen that has accumulated and possibly cause the plant disks to sink. The measurement tool that can be used to observe these counteracting processes is the floating (or sinking) of the plant disks. In other words, the buoyancy of the leaf disks is actually an indirect measurement of the net rate of photosynthesis occurring in the leaf tissue.

 

All that being said... Ain't it pretty?

Thanks for looking?

Traditional fasting plate in Ethiopian cuisine. That means no animal products, only veg! Delicious stuff right here. You eat the various veggies and stews by picking it up with injera, a sort of spongy pancake like bread made from the tef grain and absolutely ubiquitous in Ethiopian cuisine

 

One of Ethiopia's most famous dishes (pictured) is called shiro " a homogeneous stew whose primary ingredient is powdered chickpeas or broad bean meal. It is often prepared with the addition of minced onions, garlic and, depending upon regional variation, ground ginger or chopped tomatoes and chili-peppers. Shiro is served atop injera or kitcha (a sugarless pancake kind of bread). However, it can be cooked in shredded taita and eaten with a spoon, this version would be called shiro fit-fit. (via. wikipedia).

 

Delicious finger-food at its best.

  

Quizzical look from visiting moose. Had a floppy ear. I was safely `25' feet away. she gave me a good look over before going back to her hedge trimming. I spent quite a bit of time by her side. Didn't seem to bother her at all. Left some amazing moose divits in my spongy lawn.

 

I'm even Cuter here

Chitoi Pitha is a popular winter snack in our part of the world. It is our version of Rice Pan Cake although much more softer, thicker and spongier. It goes well with anything and itself quite delicious too.

Happy Halloween.

 

This isn't my best, since this is my first "object" shot. I usually shoot portraits.

Painted by : NA.♥

 

we had alot of fun that DAY =)

Part 2

 

...I don't know.

The rock you see here is in the Brachina Gorge in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia. It is renowned as some of the oldest exposed rock on the planet. The astonishingly clear layers (images to come) belong to the Ediacaran period (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ediacaran) which is around 600+ Million Years ago. At that stage Australia, India and Africa were all joined! Think about that!

 

I spent two full days in the gorge, looking, touching and feeling the ancient rock and stone. It almost hurt trying to comprehend just how long ago 600 million years is. There were only soft spongy living cells on the planet. The thought of intelligent life was so incredibly far in the future.

 

I sat in the small cave you see here for some time imagining the infinitesimally small amount of time human beings have been here in comparison. And what a tiny dot we are in this picture. I felt somehow tiny, like the ants walking around me. I left the valley with an incredible sense of humility and realisation, once again, that the earth is and will always be so much more powerful than we. And that indifference will allow it to recover, grow and simply be for another 600 million years, when we are long gone.

 

Funnily enough the Ball of Light didn't hang around much n this trip. But the few shots I did get mean a lot to me. They remind me of the incredible feelings I felt whilst there.

 

Peace. Be strong.

Day 3: nature / the outdoors

 

I adore snow. Especially when it falls slowly in form of thick, spongy snowflakes. Walking around the city during a weather like this is magical.

 

I think I may skip the day four, a hair flip photo. Will that be cheating too much?

The wet environment of the Okavango Delta encourages the growth of thousands of tree and plant species: the Day Water Lily is an aquatic plant with round, floating leaves split by a V-notch. These plants have underground stems which are firmly anchored to the mud under water by means of rather thick, spreading roots. The rhizome (underground stem) is 4 - 5 cm in diameter, black in colour and rather spongy. The leaves float on long, spongy stalks and are round with a deep notch or cut from the centre to the outer edge.

 

The first on in the daily shots series. Today we are facing high water everywhere in Holland. Dikes are getting spongy and even new qayes collapse like in Nijmegen. So today the high water. Here we have 3 cm to go before it floods over the dike.

Rossig buiskussen (NL)

Het rossig buiskussen is de sporenvormende structuur van een slijmschimmel, en feitelijk dus geen paddenstoel. Hoewel buiskussens op rottend hout verschijnen, is er niet zoals bij paddenstoelen een grote massa van schimmeldraden (hyfen) in het hout aanwezig. Uit de sporen van slijmschimmels ontstaan amoeben die fuseren tot plasmodia (meercellige organismen waarbij de cellen niet door wanden van elkaar zijn gescheiden). Zulke plasmodia kunnen zich over het substraat voortbewegen en zich voeden met bacteriën, protozoa, sporen van schimmels, mossen en varens. Wanneer de hoeveelheid voedsel beperkend wordt, veranderen de plasmodia in een sporenvormende structuur. Bij het rossig buiskussen bestaat die uit een grote groep van ongesteelde sporangia die tegen elkaar aangedrukt zijn. De individuele sporangia zijn enkele tienden van millimeters in diameter en 3 tot 5 millimeter hoog. De hele groep wordt ongeveer 5 cm, zo'n groep wordt een pseudoaethalium genoemd. In jonge toestand is het helder roze tot oranje van kleur, later wordt het grauwbruin. De slijmzwam heeft een voorkeur voor dood hout dat al behoorlijk ver is vergaan en met mos is bedekt.

 

Het rossig buiskussen werd vroeger Tubifera ferruginosa genoemd, de nieuwe naam is Tubulifera arachnoidea. Tubifera betekent "buisdragend", Tubulifera "buisjesdragend", dit slaat op de vorm van het pseudoaethalium. De soortnaam ferruginosa betekent "vol roest" en heeft betrekking op de roestachtige kleur. Licea tubulina en Licea clavata zijn andere synoniemen van Tubulifera arachnoidea.

Red raspberry slime (EN)

Tubifera is a genus of slime moulds from the subclass Myxogastria. They comprise 12 species. The red raspberry slime is one of them. Scientiffically it used to be called "Tubifera ferruginosa" but now is renamed to "Tubulifera arachnoidea".

 

With tubifera the fruit body are aethalia from numerous, closely pressed together sporangia, sometimes also smaller, looser or bundled grouplets. The oblong sporangia are ochre, pink or red to dark brown and may be shiny or shimmering. They open at the tip to release the spores.

 

The hypothallus is spongy, occasionally raised to a stem-like, stock, dark-coloured structure or also, on Tubifera bombarda, soft and film-like thin. The membranous, single layered peridium is outlasting the below half. A pseudocapillitium is the name for a group of the sporangia. The individual sporangia are about 3 to 5 mm in height and less then a mm in diameter.

The Church of Our Lady (Dutch: Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk, or Grote Kerk) in Dordrecht is a medieval Protestant church and is the largest church in the city.

It is a church in the Brabantine Gothic style with an unfinished tower and is the second oldest church in the city.

 

The Gothic Big Church is the third biggest one in the Netherlands, and the tower is about 75 meters high (about 250 feet) and never finished. The dome-vault of the Big Church is the only one in The Netherlands fully made of stone.

 

The Tower of the Big Church was build about 1182.

A few centuries ago, the size of the church's tower was an indication of the city's wealth.

Dordrecht was a fabulously wealthy city, but the tower was never finished.

Dordrecht's position in between rivers made the ground very wet and spongy, and unable to support a structure so high. The tower started leaning over 2,5 meters, Which it still visible right now.

The famous Big Church also has the largest Carillon of Europe.

 

After the great city fire in 1457 this beautiful late gothic cruciform basilica was rebuilt. Its beautiful interior is stone vaulted. The Lady Choir has a stellar vault.

The organ dates from 1671/1859; impressive white marble sculptured pulpit dating from 1756; choir stalls dated 1538-1541 and a brass choir screen in rococo style (1744); wall painting depicting the legend of St. Sura (1993).

Exhibitions: Dordrecht Synod 1618-1619; water colours of the vaulting rosettes; gold christening and communion set; video presentation on the history of the church.

bentonite is a spongy but firm clay type soil

I love to have it.

 

Fruit: The nearly round, 2-1/2 to 5 in. wide fruit is crowned at the base by the prominent calyx. The tough, leathery skin or rind is typically yellow overlaid with light or deep pink or rich red.

 

The interior is separated by membranous walls and white, spongy, bitter tissue into compartments packed with sacs filled with sweetly acid, juicy, red, pink or whitish pulp or aril. In each sac there is one angular, soft or hard seed. High temperatures are essential during the fruiting period to get the best flavor. The pomegranate may begin to bear in 1 year after planting out, but 2-1/2 to 3 years is more common.

 

Under suitable conditions the fruit should mature some 5 to 7 months after bloom.

 

Thank you to shared some interesting:)

 

I jumped out of the car, well, didn't really jump....anyway.....this was shot just outside of Key West on the way down here yesterday. The mulch like debris in the foreground is quite spongy. I leaped, yes thats leaped, from the side of the road onto this stuff. I assumed it to be a thin layer on the sand. I kinda sunk in about a foot. Felt like quick sand for a minute, not that I know what that feels like either. Jeez, what am I rambling on about?

 

Anyway....enjoy :)

The forecast of some impending wet weather means that I will probably have to curb my weir wading for a while! This was made a few days ago at Beeston Weir, when there was a nice balance of water flowing over it. I managed to reach this stranded log and set up my tripod on some solid ground. That's not as daft as it sounds, because the weir is actually quite spongy from all the plant growth and setting the tripod legs firmly is essential for longer exposures such as this.

 

The floors where wet and spongy through the snowwater from the roof

Crispy, Crackly, Crunchy, spongy and slippery... oh and very cold. that would about be it.

 

Stil, it was awesome.

The island feels as if you are walking on the moon. It is very soft and spongy.

"Why are the woods so alluring? A forest appears

to a young girl one morning as she combs

the dreams out of   her hair. The trees rustle

and whisper, shimmer and hiss. The forest

opens and closes, a door loose on its hinges,

banging in a strong wind. Everything in the dim

kitchen: the basin, the jug, the skillet, the churn,

snickers scornfully. In this way a maiden

is driven toward the dangers of a forest,

but the forest is our subject, not this young girl.

 

She’s glad to lie down with trees towering all around.

A certain euphoria sets in. She feels molecular,

bedeviled, senses someone gently pulling her hair,

tingles with kisses she won’t receive for years.

Three felled trees, a sort of chorus, narrate

her thoughts, or rather channel theirs through her,

or rather subject her to their peculiar verbal

restlessness ...    our deepening need for non-being intones

the largest and most decayed tree, mid-sentence.

I’m not one of you squeaks the shattered sapling,

 

blackened by lightning. Their words become metallic

spangles shivering the air. Will I forget the way home?

the third blurts. Why do I feel like I’m hiding in a giant’s nostril?

the oldest prone pine wants to know. Are we being   freed

from matter? the sapling asks. Insects are well-intentioned,

offers the third tree, by way of consolation. Will it grow

impossible to think a thought through to its end? gasps the sapling,

adding in a panicky voice, I’m becoming spongy! The girl

feels her hands attach to some distant body. She rises

to leave, relieved these trees are not talking about her."

Two harnessed zebu are employed to grind teff on a large natural flat rock alongside the former railway track bed and river bed near Amba Derho, between Keren and Asmara. Teff is an important food grain in Ethiopia and Eritrea, where it is used to make injera, a sourdough-risen flatbread with a unique, slightly spongy texture, and traditional to the Horn of Africa region.
