Magnificent Pictures Captured By A Man 
William Patino was 25 when he was diagnosed with depression. He was married to the love of his life, and they had a beautiful house. He also had an excellent job but felt a sudden emptiness within himself. He felt unhappy and distressed even after possessing everything a man wishes for. He never knew that a camera could save him. He started to find beauty in nature which eventually healed him through clicking pictures. Let's have a look at the am...

Windblown or not?

Lori Fenton: "A piece of Mars: The surface in this 960×540 m (0.6×0.34 mi) scene has a distinct fabric to it that runs from the upper left to lower right. Are these old lithified dunes? And what makes the tiny filamentary lines that run from upper right to lower left, are those ripples? I’m not convinced either way, but I suspect the wind has had a hand in shaping them, one way or another."

LL Ori and the Orion Nebula

This esthetic close-up of cosmic clouds and stellar winds features LL Orionis, interacting with the Orion Nebula flow. Adrift in Orion's stellar nursery and still in its formative years, variable star LL Orionis produces a wind more energetic than the wind from our own middle-aged Sun. As the fast stellar wind runs into slow moving gas a shock front is formed, analogous to the bow wave of a boat moving through water or a plane traveling at supersonic speed.

The small, arcing, graceful structure just above and left of center is LL Ori's cosmic bow shock, measuring about half a light-year across. The slower gas is flowing away from the Orion Nebula's hot central star cluster, the Trapezium, located off the upper left corner of the picture. In three dimensions, LL Ori's wrap-around shock front is shaped like a bowl that appears brightest when viewed along the "bottom" edge. The beautiful picture is part of a large mosaic view of the complex stellar nursery in Orion, filled with a myriad of fluid shapes associated with star formation.

Evidence of briny water on Mars

Data collected on Mars by NASA's Curiosity rover and analyzed by University of Arkansas researchers indicate that water, in the form of brine, may exist under certain conditions on the planet's surface.

The Mysterious Lakes of Badain Jaran Desert ... "The Badain Jaran Desert occupies parts of China and Inner Mongolia covering an area of 49,000 sq. kilometers making it the third largest desert in China. Although not a lot of people are familiar with this desert, outside China, it is known for having the tallest stationary dunes on earth. Some of these dunes have been measured to reach heights of more than 500 meters. Badain Jaran has an extremely arid climate with an annual precipitation between 50-60mm. Nearly 40-80 times of the precipitation gets evaporated away before it falls as rainfall.

Despite these dry conditions, one of the most remarkable feature of Badain Jaran is the existence of nearly 140 permanent lakes that lie between the dunes. It’s these lakes that give the desert its name which in Mongolian means "mysterious lakes".

These mysterious lakes are believed to be fed by underground water springs that flow under the gravel deposits and appear between the dunes where the deposits become fine-grained and the water flow is blocked. The source of this water is precipitation and snowmelt in the mountains surrounding the desert hundreds of kilometers away. Runoff from these mountains flows through the fractured rocks and through gravel deposits beneath the desert, and emerge at scattered places giving rise to numerous lakes. Although the springs carry fresh water, most of the lakes are saline, which can be explained by their high rate of evaporation. Some of the lakes change color due to the presence of a large populations of algae, brine shrimp and minerals. Evaporation have also led some hypersaline lakes to form salt crust around the rim of the lakes.

The fresh water lakes provide the life sustenance in the desert supporting camels, goats and horses which are herded by nomads that travel through the desert. Most lakes also support a green ring of vegetation that populate the close vicinity around the lakes.
In recent decades, some of these lakes have shrunk or even disappeared, as a result of reduction in groundwater brought about by urbanization, irrigation, water diversion, and an increase in population. ..."

An old, wise owl lived at an oak: the more she saw, the less she spoke; the less she spoke, the more she heard. Why can't we be like this owl?

Monday Night's Waning Gibbous - One Day After Full. 

I shot this when the Moon was very low in the sky, , which is why the edges look a bit distorted. Looking through that much of Earth's atmosphere makes it difficult to get a sharp image. It also causes the amber color you see here.

“Sunset on Lago de Atitlan, Guatemala”

Sorry I have been away from Google+ for a while. I was in Guatemala last month so that means I have plenty of photos to share!

If you want to experience the essential beauty of Guatemala you must head to Lago de Atitlan in the western highlands. Not only is it one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, add in the fact that three volcanoes surround it and is dotted with thirteen traditional Maya towns.

This is a spectacular sunset shot I took from the pier of the town of Panajachel. This was the only sunset I was able to capture as the rest of the week it was overcast.

Gravitational Anomalies of Mercury
Image Credit: +NASA, GSFC's SVS, JHU's APL, Carnegie Inst. Washington
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150505.html

What's that under the surface of Mercury? The robotic MESSENGER spacecraft that had been orbiting planet Mercury for the past four years had been transmitting its data back to Earth with radio waves of very precise energy. The planet's gravity, however, slightly changed this energy when measured on Earth, which enabled the reconstruction of a gravity map of unprecedented precision. Here gravitational anomalies are shown in false-color, superposed on an image of the planet's cratered surface. Red hues indicate areas of slightly higher gravity, which in turn indicates areas that must have unusually dense matter under the surface. The central area is Caloris Basin, a huge impact feature measuring about 1,500 kilometers across. Last week, after completing its mission and running low on fuel, MESSENGER was purposely crashed onto Mercury's surface.

Social Media Active Users UPDATED!

A couple of interesting updates from the previous 30 days.

First, Facebook continues to grow and dominate the social landscape, now up to 1.44 Billion monthly active users... an increase of about 50 million over the past month.

Second, Twitter continues to grow as well, reporting an increase of 12 million users over the same timeframe, bringing them to 302 million monthly active users, and once again claiming the #4 spot from Instagram.

There've been no other updates from the other social networks.

For the full breakdown: http://www.thesocialmediahat.com/active-users
