Happy New Year" Happy New Year / 30 December, 2009 [click for previous image: let it snow #3] Happy New Year / 30 December, 2009 [click for next image: ringing in the new year] Title • Happy New Year I've spent the last couple of days wondering what to post to close out the year and then came across this entry on (run by my good friend Catalin Marin): his twelve favourite shots from 2009, one from each month.

Happy New Year"

So, with credit to Catalin for the idea, here are my twelve favourites for the preceding year. Had I selected images from the year as a whole I suspect that there would be a couple of changes, and I also suspect that some of you would make different choices from each month, but when I looked back through the images I'd posted this year these are the ones that gave me most pleasure to produce.

24 Amazing Auroras: Aurora Borealis & Aurora Australis

Like its more familiar counterpart, the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, the Aurora Australis is caused by the solar wind passing through the upper atmosphere. But the Aurora Australis is much less frequently observed because so few people live in Antarctica during the austral winter. Photo #1 by Keith Vanderlinde, National Science Foundation This is the Aurora Australis, which dances through the sky virtually all the time during the long Antarctic night over Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. The photo’s surreal appearance makes the station look like a futuristic Mars Station. Moonlight.jpg (JPEG εικόνα, 1920x1080 εικονοστοιχεία) - Σε κλίμακα (54%) Earth Is Beautiful -4 STUMBLE.

Maldives - Double chain of twenty-six atolls… The Republic of Maldives, or simply the Maldives, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. It consists of approximately 1,190 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls, along the north-south direction, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometers, making this one of the most disparate countries in the world.

Mind-Boggling Shadow Art from Trash Sculptures. British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster are a creative team known for their experimental art including these mind-boggling light and shadow sculptures.

The duo forms abstract works from, which upon first glance, look like nothing other than straightforward piles of trash. The excitement for the viewer comes when a single light illuminates the pile and creates an entirely new piece of art—usually portraits of themselves—formed with the combination of light and shadow projected onto the wall. Throughout their careers, the artists have, “played with the idea of how humans perceive abstract images and define them with meaning. The result is surprising and powerful as it redefines how abstract forms can transform into figurative ones.”
