Located near near the village of Mevagissey in Cornwall, the Lost Gardens of Heligan , are one of one of Cornwall’s must-visit gardens. Originally owned by the Tremayne family for over 400 years, the gardens fell into a state of neglect after the first World War when many of the gardeners sadly lost their lives. It wasn’t until 1990 that the derelict gardens were discovered by Tim Smit (who went on to create Cornwall’s Eden Project) and John Willis, who was a descendant of the Tremayne family.

National Geographic is currently holding its annual photo contest , with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 30. For the past nine weeks, the society has been gathering and presenting galleries of submissions, encouraging readers to vote for them as well.

Nature photography refers to a broad variety of photography taken outdoors and loyal to displaying natural rudiments such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. Nature photography tends to put a stronger stress on the artistic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography. Here is our variety of outside photography captured by Angus Clyne that is devoted to displaying the world’s natural rudiments such as vegetation, wildlife, landscapes, and other natural scenes. These photographs of the speculate of nature are certain to astonish your imagination, motivate you, and imprison your spirit. All these photographs are copyrighted to Angus Clyne .

Go Discovery! It was October 23, 2007 at 11:40am EST when I had my first ride to space on Discovery. She’s beautiful… just sad that this will be her last voyage. Looking forward to climbing aboard the flight deck when Discovery arrives at the Space Station in November. (9-23-2010). Incredible Photos from Space: Larry Tanner, NASA.
Someone sent me these in a chain email, it was horribly formatted. I also do not know who made the comments, or how accurate they are. I take zero credit in the pictures, I just wanted to compile them nicely for all to see. The world’s highest chained carousel, located in Vienna, the height of 117 meters.
