++Weekend Edition: INTERESTING AND FUNNY PHOTOS +++

INTERESTING AND FUNNY PHOTOS

JUST FOR THE WEEKEND !
_______________________________________

This blog is meant to also be entertaining.  So, today, let's relax once.  I have put together some pictures I have found that are just funny, as well as very interesting.  We all take them.  Are they as funny as these:



That works — with Ridwaan Ally.

Then there are these amazing photos I have just discovered:

               
The Kelimutu volcano on Indonesia’s Flores Island is one of nature’s most stunning displays of color and chemistry. The summit of the volcano contains three lakes, each of which changes hue depending on its inner alchemy of salts, oxides, rainfall, and the activity of the volcano. The only place on earth where this volcanic alchemy takes place, Kelimutu attracts photographers and tourists from all over the world. Shann Biglione‘s photo shows the westernmost lake, Tiwu Ata Bupu (Lake of Old People), at the break of dawn:

Biglione captured this beautiful shot with a Nikon D7000 and a Sigma 10-20mm lens with the following settings: 1 second, f/22, ISO 100.
Mount Kelimutu is the only place on earth where this amazing color variation takes place, but don’t think of taking a quick, refreshing dip in its waters: the lakes are highly acidic.

At night, lighthouses can seem magical. In this case, a lighthouse appears to be light painting the Milky Way into the sky:

The image by photographer Trevor Dobson is a composite of the Milky Way. It was shot near the Guilderton Lighthouse in Western Australia, near the city of Perth. The photo—or rather photos—were shot using a crop sensor Nikon D5100, which was paired with a 35mm lens. The settings used were ISO 3200, f/2 and 13 seconds, and the finished image has a humongous 150 megapixel resolution and stretches 200 degrees from east to west.
Amazingly you can even see some small and large magellanic clouds above the light pollution created by the city in the background. Excellent post-production, too.
