Aldeyjarfoss, Iceland
Unlike most of Iceland's great waterfalls, where you are likely to see one or two tour buses, Aldeyjarfoss is little bit off the beaten path. In addition to the beautiful glacial water, the very prominent basalt columns, and the magnificence of the waterfall itself--the isolation of this location is one of the greatest draws—very few people seem to make the trip. In fact, we did not see a single other person while we were there. We had it to ourselves, and it was amazing.

I agree completely. The unpredictability of the weather was the biggest obstacle. That being said, in this photo, I love the look of dark clouds against the colors of the water and the rock.

Hvalfjörður, Iceland
A missed turn resulted in a bit of a detour during my recent trip to Iceland. This required us to drive the winding road around Hvalfjörður instead of taking the tunnel for a more direct route. After seeing the views the fjord offered, everyone in my group was pleased with the mistake.

Now, imagine if there were an ambitious and decently funded space program... I wonder if that might inspire the pursuit of education in scientific fields.

Having just quit that field due to the fact that there is no funding, I aggree. The bigger problem is that we have lost most of the talent (and knowledge in the field) due to retirement and laying off the next generation. If we really wanted to develop something new, we will be reinventing the wheel. Furthermore this also applies to missle defense. Would it not be cool to shoot down a missle from korea or iran? (yes, they will eventually develope one) Good luck the Obamanation cancelled those programs. Every empire in history has eventually fallen. We are trying hard to end ours through enabling the lazy and punishing the intellegent.

Healy, Alaska
I wasn't expecting to see such a beautiful landscape in Healy, Alaska*. I was there because it is relatively close to Denali National Park. The night before was cloudy and rainy and visibility was limited. My  jaw dropped the next morning when I stepped out onto the balcony of our B&B (Denali Lakeview Inn) and saw that the storm had passed. In its place a beautiful landscape was revealed. 

*This was my first trip to Alaska; I did not yet understand that most of Alaska is ridiculously beautiful.

Ingjaldsholl, Iceland
The vast fields of lupins are easy to take for granted in Iceland-they are everywhere it seems. This particular location was one of my favorites. The scene was just perfect: the church on the hill, a small narrow road winding its way through a field of flowers, and the sun trying to peak through the clouds.

Approximately 8 million viewers tuned in on +YouTube to watch Felix Baumgartner's stunning  #spacejump , when the man reached 833.9mph during freefall. If the number is confirmed, YouTube will have broken its last livestream record by a factor of 16 (previous record: the London 2012 Olympic Games).

This is the future of live events. When something is allowed to broadcast free of geographic restrictions and artificial tape delays, the audience goes global. When traditional media is allowed to converge with social networks, anything can become a shared moment.

Great job Felix & #RedBullStratos ! And +YouTube, for inexplicably handling such a huge number of concurrent streams without imploding.

Edit: The number has just been confirmed by YouTube - 8 million concurrent livestreams. Link: http://youtube-global.blogspot.ca/2012/10/mission-complete-red-bull-stratos-lands.html

This is a pretty sweet idea. I'd imagine that even with a decent amount of image degradation it would still acceptable (and still contribute to better immersion) since it is observed primarily in your peripheral vision.

I can't imagine many experiences that would be more thrilling and satisfying than this. That being said- I think I'll pass. Shame.
 
Wingsuits, basejumping and really really close ground flyovers...oh my!
