    My nightly ritual is to take my dog to the beach for sunset. It's extremely variable and never is disappointing (to me, anyway).

    Hard times create strong men, Strong men create good times, Good times create weak men, Weak men create hard times.

    That Orangutan's portrait is a stunning photographic capture. One of the most moving animal portraits I've ever seen. One doesn't need to anthropomorphize to feel his sentience.

    Joe Rogan made a comment a while back about apes, orangutans or chimps. He said that as many of them are using tools such as sticks and stones to gather food and other activities more and more, they are entering a stone age.

    Never thought of it like that...

    Not strictly nature, but mixing it up with Pahoa town. Many wild pigs and chickens all over the island. This is about 30 yards from the Post Office where you can hear strolling roosters crowing out the back door.

    Natural Wonder Only Discovered in 2009
    Nov 3, 2019
    Mobile Instinct

    "Although the natural wonder Stuđlagil and the basalt columns have always been here, much of this fascinating landscape was underwater until only a few years ago. It is almost hard to believe when standing here that this was a terrifying place under the forceful pressure of a dominating and angry river. It is by any standard one of the most beautiful places in Iceland where you can see and photograph exceptional basalt columns.

    When Icelanders built the hydroelectric plant Kárahnjúkavirkjun the sources for the river Jökla were affected. Instead of running as a glacial river through the valley of Jökuldalur, its source in the north-eastern highlands was diverted into the Hálslón reservoir. From the reservoir, its flows with its former force through 60 kilometers of underground tunnels to drive the hydro-electric turbines of the power plant. So, most of the old sources of the river Jökulsá á Brú don't reach Jökuldalur anymore. "
