Earth of Arts

Earth  is the third planet from the Sun. It is also the densest and fifth-largest of the eight planets in the Solar System. It is sometimes referred to as the World, the Blue Planet, or by its Latin name, Terra. Needless to say, Earth is the only planet that home millions of species, one of the species are us ~ human. How amazing our Earth is?! However, you will be more amazed by Earth after seeing the satellite pictures that took by Nasa.

Patches of southern Australia's shallow Lake Eyre seem to form a grimacing face in an August 2006 satellite picture. When seasonal rains are plentiful, the water body is Australia's largest lake. But it's also an "ephemeral" feature in a dry land: The lake has only filled three times during the past 150 years.

Like branching blood vessels, the Yukon Delta's sinuous waterways empty into the Bering Sea in a 2002 satellite picture. The Yukon River—which begins in the Canadian province of British Columbia and crosses through the Yukon Territory and Alaska—was protected in 2010 as part of the United States' new Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge.

In the style of Van Gogh's "Starry Night," massive congregations of greenish phytoplankton swirl in dark water around Sweden's Gotland island. Population explosions, or blooms, of phytoplankton, like the one shown here, occur when deep currents bring nutrients up to sunlit surface waters, fueling the growth and reproduction of these tiny plants.

The Mississippi River—North America's largest—unfurls like a teal ribbon through towns, fields, and pastures on the Arkansas-Mississippi border in a 2003 satellite picture.

Like poster paints run wild, a 2003 image captures an "eclectic montage" of landscapes in Iran's largest desert, the Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. The mostly uninhabited region—a mix of dry streambeds, desert plateaus, mud flats, and salt marshes—covers an area of more than 29,730 square miles (77,000 square kilometers).

What looks like red paint is actually a "remarkable interplay of light and cloud" captured in 2004 in the Canadian Rockies. Low clouds filled a part of the Rocky Mountain Trench, which sits near the border between the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. Light reflecting off the clouds, coupled with low sun elevation.

A complex "circuitry" of Greenland fjords among red-tinted mountains ease the flow of glacial ice into the Atlantic Ocean in 2001. When temperatures rise in the summer, newly calved icebergs here join slabs of sea ice and older, weathered icebergs in an offshore slurry that sometimes "swirls into stunning shapes".

Tin Bider, an ancient and eroded meteor crater in the Algerian Sahara, glimmers in a 2009 picture. Nearly 3.7 miles (6 kilometers) wide, the crater was caused by a meteorite impact in this region of northern Africa roughly 70 million years ago.

Resembling distant galaxies amid clouds of interstellar dust, chunks of sea ice drift through swirls of grease ice near Canada's Baffin Island in 2002. Sea ice often begins as grease ice, a soupy slick of tiny ice crystals on the ocean's surface. As the temperature drops, grease ice thickens and coalesces into solid ice slabs.

Beautiful and Tranquil Photographs for You and Me

It's been a while I didn't active on my "baby" blog. I was away for holidays and busy with my marketing tasks. The gift that I received thus far for the New Year is I'm alive from a car accident. It happened last night, the right side of my car was damaged severely by the speeding car. I was so lucky that the huge impact neither cause my car window to break nor impacted on me orelse I wouldn't be here. Therefore,  in order to cheer and celebrate my so-called "relive", I've selected a few photographs that are peaceful, beautiful and tranquil for you and me.

Notes: Nobody was injured in this horrific accident. My car has admitted into "hospital", it will be under knife by "surgeons". The estimated hospitalization fee of my car is.......  {Dear}

Everyone: Life is the most precious thing on Earth, others are only supplements, you can take back what you've lost except life.
