With an hour to spare before closing I decided to take in the exhibition at the Tacoma Glass Museum. Mount Rainier was in full view – not a cloud in sight or threatening to cover the peak. The above sculpture (about 4′ high) was the first to capture my attention. I apologize for the glare – the iPhone has its limits… I love the interplay of translucency and color.

Despite its weight this sculpture communicates movement and vitality to me. Remember his style? This is another of Martin Blank’s glass sculptures. A second view of the sculpture. Another dynamic glass sculpture – depicting the human figure. Viewed with the light from a different angle. This is Preston Singletary, introduced in yesterday’s post as discovered in the Hotel Murano.

This bust was also created by Preston Singletary – a talented North West First Nations Artist. Links: Australian Glass and the Pacific Northwest is the feature exhibition until January 2014. These oversized perfume vessels were eye-catching. Like this: 60 insane cloud formations from around the world [PICs] | Matador Network - Aurora. Cloud varieties go way beyond the cumulus, stratus, and cirrus we learn about in elementary school. Check out these wild natural phenomena. STANDING IN A CORNFIELD IN INDIANA, I once saw a fat roll cloud (like #4 below) float directly over my head. It’s a 12-year-old memory that remains fresh. There was a moment of mild panic just as the cloud reached me — Is this what a tornado looks like right before it hits? I thought. This is some freaky unnatural shit and I do not know how I’m supposed to react. I imagine a lot of these photographers having similar hesitations as they set up for the shots below.

Night Sky Panorama-Bonneville Salt Flats-3D Panorama - Aurora. 47 unearthly lightning strikes [PICs] | Matador Network - Aurora. Lightning photography can capture milliseconds of the most powerful natural phenomena. Just be sure you’re at least 6 miles (or 30 seconds between flash and thunder) from the storm.

IN THESE IMAGES, lightning appears close up, often seemingly just a few city blocks away. Don’t let the images fool you though — pro lightning photographers let the lenses do the work, or shoot from relative safety inside vehicles or under cover. As lightning strikes only last for an eyeblink, it’s also necessary to use long shutter times (up to 30 seconds or longer) or devices which can trigger the shutter when lightning is detected. Note then, that most of the images are not single instants in time, but composite images containing several individual lightning strikes over a given period. The odds of actually being struck by lightning in the US over one’s lifetime are surprisingly high: 1 in 10,000. For information on lightning safety, check the National Lightning Safety Institute.

Most Ancient Mesoamerican civilizations built pyramid-shaped structures.

These were usually step pyramids, with temples on top more akin to the ziggurats of Mesopotamia than the Pyramids of Ancient Egypt. Mesoamerican Pyramids served many functions from - from astronomical observatories to places of ritual worship and sacrifice, and perhaps something linked to extraterrestrials. Mesoamerican Civilizations The Great Pyramid of Cholula The temple-pyramid complex was built in four stages, starting from the 3rd century BCE through the 9th century CE, and was dedicated to the deity Quetzalcoatl. Today the pyramid at first appears to be a natural hill surmounted by a church. Because of the historic and religious significance of the church, which is a designated colonial monument, the pyramid as a whole has not been excavated and restored, as have the smaller but better-known pyramids at Teotihuacan.

In these dramatic landscapes, photographer Lisa Wood perfectly blurs the line between reality and abstraction. The series, entitled Art of Farmland, documents the gorgeous countryside of the artist's hometown in Sun Valley, Idaho.

However, as viewers gaze upon the visually stunning images, it becomes evident that these aren't your typical farmland scenes. By blending multiple exposures and utilizing timelapse techniques, Wood transforms an everyday moment into a playfully surreal adventure. The artist merges geometric lines and patterns with bold, vibrant colors to create the painterly compositions. She says, "My hope for the viewer is to look at rural landscapes in a different way and to hopefully appreciate both the imagination behind the images and the moods they evoke.

Awe-Inspiring Photos of Swirling Superstorms Belie Their Destructive Power | Raw File. Supercell thunderstorms are characterized by a cycling, cylindrical vortex of air that moves upward off the ground, which is also known as a mesocyclone.

Not only does it sound badass, but it produces some of the most visually striking weather on Earth. Each summer since 2009, photographer Mitch Dobrowner and guide Roger Hill have driven through the Great Plains and high deserts of the United States in search of these jaw-dropping forces of nature. When they find them, Dobrowner pulls out his camera and takes breathtaking black and white photos that capture the enormity and intensity of these churning atmospheric formations.

“On just the second day I was chasing storms I found myself standing there and I was like, ‘Holy shit, you have to be kidding me,’” Dobrowner says. “I had never seen anything like it.” “I don’t like to see a lot of destruction or violence. If I want to see that, I can see it on the streets of Los Angeles where I live,” he says.
