Spectacular Photography of Ice Formations in Slovenia by Marko Korosec

Photos shown below aren’t about ice sculpture, at least not man-made ice sculpture. These incredible windswept ice formations on top of Mount Javornik, part of a mountain range in eastern Slovenia look like otherworldly. Everything from trees to lookout towers had become completely encased in hard layers of rime ice – a white ice that forms when the water droplets in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. These spectacular photos were taken by weather photographer Marko Korosec. And according to Korosec, the longest ice spikes growing off the tower reached well over 3-feet long. Check Korosec’s 500px page to find more of these weather photography.

Art of Balance

In biomechanics, balance is a cup. To maintain the center of gravity of a body or object within the base of support with minimal postural sway.

For a human, to keep balance requires integration of inputs from multiple senses with the motor system responsible for muscle actions. The senses must detect the change of the body position with respect to the base (whether the body moves or the base moves).

In this blog, we will see some amazing photos of balance, including body balance and object balance.

Amazing collection of Albino Animals

Nature is a great designer, it always creates something special, like Albino Animals. Scientifically, pigments are the chemicals in our bodies that give us our colors. When a bird or other animal makes no pigments, the condition is called albinism, the animal being called an albino. However, personally, I still believe it is an amazing creation of nature. Here is a collection of albino animals, probably one of the cutest galleries yet. Hope you enjoy.

The animal shown here might not all albino, thanks for all those who help to correct me… but at least there is a good collection of rare white animal… hope you still enjoy.

Micro-sculptures that fit in the eye of a needle

Micro-sculptor Willard Wigan is known all around the world for his miniature sculptures that are invisible to the naked eye. Willard uses tiny homemade tools and paints with a hair plucked from a housefly’s back and carves microscopic figures from grains of rice or sand or sugar. The sculptures, which often take months to complete, are then mounted on pin heads or needles.

Now, Willard’s work is described as “the eighth wonder of the world”. To view more of his work , you can visit Willard Wigan’s website
