Awesome views of the grand Canyon : theCHIVE

A few months ago, a rare weather phenomenon occurred at the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. In an event that only happens approximately every 10 years, the entire canyon was filled with fog. To heighten the scene, the skies above were clear and cloudless.

The phenomenon is known as ‘temperature inversion’ where warm air acts as a lid to seal cool air near the ground, trapping fog in the canyon and preventing it from rising. According to the National Weather Service, the atmosphere’s temperature profile is most prone to inversion during the winter, when long nights allow for air near the Earth’s surface to become unusually cold. Also assisting is the Canyon’s natural topographical features, enhancing the effects of the inversion.

Fall on Vimeo

One of the most striking things about New York City is the fall colors and there’s no better place to view this then Central Park. I chose 15 locations in the park and revisited them 2 days a week for six months, recording all camera positions and lens information to create consistency in the images. All shots were taken just after sunrise.

This is a series of photographs of Lake Retba in Senegal. It’s pink. The lake has an unusually high salt concentration (like the Dead Sea), in which Dunaliella salina micro-algae thrive, giving it its pink hue. Neato.
