(Really) Stunning Pictures and Photos Monday Inspiration Smashing Magazine.url Photography is a very powerful medium and a very difficult craft.

However, it is worth it: the results can be truly stunning.

Located 3/4 mile upstream from its confluence with the Pedernales River, Hamilton Creek spills out over limestone outcroppings to create a 50 foot waterfall as it plunges into the head of a steep box canyon. The waterfall never completely dries up, but in dry times it does slow to a trickle.
88 Brilliant Examples of Forced Perspective Photography Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.

Origami Crease Pattern! I made my very first crease pattern! I’m not sure how origamists tend to define crease pattern, but for me, I simply used every single crease needed to create the final model without shaping. I understand that some origamists like to just draw crease patterns up to a base with a certain amount of limbs needed for the final model, but I feel like my models aren’t designed in such a way that allows for this.

20 Captivating Photos Shot At Exactly The Right There are some things in life that make me feel dated (notice I didn’t use the word “old” LOL). For example, sending a fax, writing in cursive (with a pen) and talking on any phone with a cord (and twirling it around my fingers) are all things that kids born in 2011 might never have the opportunity to experience. I remember back in the days when people would say, “I wish I had my camera with me today, I could have taken some great pictures.” Now that practically everyone has a smartphone, we all have our cameras with us everywhere we go. That is evident in these photographs taken at exactly the right moment. The photography we see these days is phenomenal. Internet's Most Viewed and Admired Photographs It is certainly my honor to present you some of the Internet’s most viewed photographs I have found on the internet. These are self explanatory pictures which need no introduction from a naive collector like me. These have been reproduced numerous times and admired all over the internet. I am sure you have seen all or few of them somewhere else as well but my effort of collecting them on one platform may inspires my readers who has special interest in natural wallpapers and photography.
"An Object in Motion," an outtake from Backswing, by Aaron Burch A: Just to pass the time, a hobby or whatever. But it kept growing kept getting bigger and finally got a little out of control, really. A: I do remember, in school, college, building these bridges out of toothpicks or Popsicle sticks or whatever and seeing how sturdy we could make our structures. How much weight they could withhold. I’d always really loved those projects. A: I did, yeah. More Sacred Geometry, Star Portals and Mandalas for Meditation I want to share some more of the Sacred Geometry creations I have put together, I start to honestly feel that these images alter the way I think about my surroundings, they tap directly into some consciousness within me, almost like life coming together and building itself in the shapes of these seemingly simple but deceptively complex formations. There is something very powerful here in the interlaced play of the red and blue colours While looking at these pictures in a state of meditation, I can feel how they alter my consciousness somehow directly, with the patterns starting to live a life of their own within my subconsciousness, mind and everything, affecting how I sense everything around me, like the patterns in themselves are starting to grow beyond my monitor, into my existence and altering the way in which I connect to the energies around me, allowing me to focus on a pattern that lets me calibrate my reality into, like offering a blueprint into the way life operates in itself.
