Simply Stunning: Marvel at the beauty of breath-taking Icelandic ice caves
Sony camera sensor technology enables a closer look at some of Mother Nature’s rarest sights that could not previously have been photographed in this way

The enigmatic beauty of the caves of Vatnajokull, one of the largest glaciers in Europe, is revealed in all its frozen, icy splendour through astoundingly sharp and detailed photography. The sensor sits at the heart of every camera and defines its capability to capture the amount of light and detail that goes into photographs. Advancements in Sony’s sensor technology are enabling photographers to take pin-sharp photographs in the most challenging low light conditions with the latest cameras from Sony, which formerly would not have been possible.

Stunning photo series heroes Iceland’s otherworldly ice caverns, with the cave’s bright blue and bubble-like walls resembling an almost underwater scene. Images also capture flowing waterfalls, and crystal clear crevasses and icy tunnels within the frosty fortress.

This incredible photo series displays the immense intricacies of never-before-seen ice caverns in Vatnajokull, Iceland - only made possible through Sony’s new sensor technology, allowing incredibly detailed low-light photography.

Each year, the Vatnajokull glacier shifts and changes, revealing complex cave systems that are there for only a matter of weeks before metamorphosing again.

Photographer Mikael Buck and renowned local guides Einar Runar Sigurdsson and Helen Maria explored the frozen world using Sony’s latest digital cameras including the 7R II featuring the world first back-illuminated full-frame sensor which brings together ultra-high resolution and ultrahigh sensitivity, the RX10 II and RX100 IV which feature the world’s first 1.0 type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor that truly shine in low-light and high contrast conditions. The images were taken without the use of any external sources – just the natural light that filters through the ice caves.

Within the photo series, barren caves have been brought to life, making visible the intricate curves of the natural sculptures, the delicate structure of its icicles, and the smooth and the marble-like texture of the cavern walls, which are formed through constant movement. Images capture the misty waterways that flow within the frosty fortress, as well as the ice-cold waterfalls that cascade down and transform the cavern’s bright blue walls. Buck has also captured images of a skilled local climber ascending the icy walls to showcase the scale of the majestic blue cave.

I'm pointing them here -> https://www.android.com/phones/whichphone/#/

Great tool, +Google

Brinicles are long ice fingers that slowly form under the sea until it reaches the seafloor and freezes the ground including the creatures along its way. This happens when the salt-heavy brine accumulated within the frozen sea ice leaks out and flows down freezing the surrounding water, forming a descending tube of ice.

30 years ago not only was history made, but the future was changed

The Amiga was so truly innovative that those using the word in their marketing today should be ashamed. Young people looking back at the Amiga are often unimpressed because so many of the features and capabilities of the Amiga platform are standard in computing devices today that the system seems unremarkable. It's only on realizing that this system had those features thirty years ago that the appreciation for the accomplishment sets in. So many of the features we take for granted today originated or were perfected in the Amiga. Its impact was profound even if its place in our collective memory is not.

You only have to look at the Amiga's contemporaries to realize just how advanced it was. Remember that the industry was still in the early days of the transition from 8bit computing and the Apple II series and Commodore 64 were still huge sellers.
Apple had just released the first update to the original Macintosh, the only real difference being an upgrade from 128k RAM to 512k.
The screen was black and white and the OS ran 1bit colour (ie black and white). The Mac's CPU did everything including draw all the bitmapped graphics. There was no multi-tasking and only basic sound.
The PC was just transitioning to the 16 bit 286 processor, running DOS with it's text interface and 640k RAM limit, most with CGA graphics and no mouse. A few had soundcards that were a nightmare to configure and only really worked in games that supported your specific brand and model of soundcard.
Then along came the Amiga. Expandable to 8.5MB of RAM, all of which it could use and address. Full Colour, graphical, windowed, multi-tasking operating system and 4 channel, stereo sound. Independent co-processors for most functions (sound, graphics, I/O) leaving the CPU free to run software. You could say, the Amiga was the first personal computer with a GPU. It's high speed blitter making the UI fast and smooth and enabling high performance gaming and business applications. The System was fully multi-tasking, even allowing multiple screens. Mac's wouldn't get real multitasking until the release of OS-X!  PC's wouldn't see it until Windows 95.
Because the standard configuration of the Amiga included so much, applications and games were far more advanced given that developers code to the lowest common hardware denominator.
Overall it would take decades for the rest of the industry to finally and fully catch up. Heck, Windows only just got multiple desktops with Windows 10.
So next time you use your fancy computer or mobile device, thank the Amiga developers who pushed the limits of technology and moved the industry forward so that we could be where we are today.

A beautiful paragraph you must read. 
Wow. This is simply a beautiful ending to today's historic decision.

United States Vice President Joe Biden lost his son to cancer today. He lost his wife and daughter in a car crash previously.

Life is so fragile. President Obama's eloquent comments really touched me. I believe they are worth reading:

"Michelle and I are grieving tonight. Beau Biden was a friend of ours. His beloved family – Hallie, Natalie, and Hunter – are friends of ours. And Joe and Jill Biden are as good as friends get.

Beau took after Joe. He studied the law, like his dad, even choosing the same law school. He chased a life of public service, like his dad, serving in Iraq and as Delaware’s Attorney General. Like his dad, Beau was a good, big-hearted, devoutly Catholic and deeply faithful man, who made a difference in the lives of all he touched – and he lives on in their hearts.

But for all that Beau Biden achieved in his life, nothing made him prouder; nothing made him happier; nothing claimed a fuller focus of his love and devotion than his family.

Just like his dad.

Joe is one of the strongest men we’ve ever known. He’s as strong as they come, and nothing matters to him more than family. It’s one of the things we love about him. And it is a testament to Joe and Jill – to who they are – that Beau lived a life that was full; a life that mattered; a life that reflected their reverence for family.

The Bidens have more family than they know. In the Delaware they love. In the Senate Joe reveres. Across this country that he has served for more than forty years. And they have a family right here in the White House, where hundreds of hearts ache tonight – for Hallie, Natalie, and Hunter; for Joe and for Jill; for Beau’s brother, Hunter; his sister, Ashley, and for the entire Biden clan.

“I have believed the best of every man,” wrote the poet William Butler Yeats, “And find that to believe it is enough to make a bad man show him at his best or even a good man swing his lantern higher.”

Beau Biden believed the best of us all. For him, and for his family, we swing our lanterns higher.

Michelle and I humbly pray for the good Lord to watch over Beau Biden, and to protect and comfort his family here on Earth."
