Sunsets. A magnificent show of natural beauty that plays every single day, everywhere, for free.

Whenever I visit this particular spot, there never fails to be a small (or large) crowd of others that are taking advantage of this great opportunity as well. The multitude of sandbars allows others to walk through the cool water, halfway out to the horizon from where I stand, as we all look ahead at this great big star called the Sun. It gracefully says “Goodnight” with a grand finale, to end its performance for this particular audience and move on to the next one—for a plethora of other folks who are, hopefully, just as appreciative.

Goodnight, Sun. Thank you once again.

HAPPY EARTH DAY!

Take a few minutes to watch this video about this amazing planet on which we live. From huge, breathtaking mountains, to tiny little birds living amidst great forests, this video showcases a wide variety of Earth’s natural wonders.

Unfortunately, I’ve checked the facts at the end of the video with several outside sources. They are all true.

Let’s slow down for a moment and really focus on appreciating our wonderful world on this day.
oh, earth.

i can’t help but take hundreds of pictures when there are colors like this all around.

“…Pictured above are the stomach contents of a juvenile sea turtle accidentally captured off the coast of Argentina. The image echoes famous photographs taken by Chris Jordan and Susan Middleton of decomposing albatrosses on the island of Midway…”

Each year, 260 million tons of plastic are produced, much of which ends up in Earth’s wonderful oceans.
