Last night I had the great pleasure of meeting up with +Derek Kind,  +Elizabeth Hahn and +Eric Raeber. Definitely missed you +Sam Breach but I totally understand the traffic issue. Nature put on a spectacular show and then we had some awesome Mexican food and conversation. This is a quick pano from my phone touched up in Photoshop.

2015 Picks Up Where 2014 Record Heat Left Off

The warmth that led 2014 to become the hottest year on record has continued into 2015, with last month ranking as the second-hottest January on record globally, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday.

“I think it is safe to say that the warmth so far in 2015 really is a continuation of the warmth in 2014,” NOAA climatologist Jake Crouch said in an email."
Last month was the second-hottest January on record globally, in a continuation of 2014's warmth.

“Solitude is independence. It had been my wish and with the years I had attained it. It was cold. Oh, cold enough! But it was also still, wonderfully still and vast like the cold stillness of space in which the stars revolve.” 
~Hermann Hesse

Hvítserkur is a striking solitary sea stack that sits about 100 meters from the cliff face in Northwest Iceland. Upon seeing this eagerly awaited stop on my trip back in 2012 I was immediately struck by its solitary position well away from the face of the coastline. Hvítserkur looks like an animal and stands alone in what appears to be quiet contemplation. As I was processing this image I thought of the quote above by Hesse and it's meaning. Solitude provides the environment to ground and center oneself, to meditate on ideas vast and small. It's a necessary nutrient for internal peace. Thinking about this concept led me to appreciate this quote by Rainer Maria Rilke even more:

“I hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other.” 
~Rainer Maria Rilke

+Boris Gorelik it the NOAA DSCOVR satellite on top of a SpaceX rocket and if the launch is successful they're going to try to land the 1st stage on a floating platform.

Actually, they've postponed the launch due to a radar issue.

A Photo Sphere I made with my phone while out enjoying that last of the snow in the hills above Tucson on 1/1/15. My 6D is shooting a time-lapse off to the side.
