Sunrise on Long Sands

If you look closely, you can see that this gull has something in his beak. Probably a mussel or a crab. Click on the pictures for a closer look.
Sunrise at Long Sands Beach

If you look closely at the next one, you can see that the dude has a surfboard in his hands.

Oh, the wildlife you can see at 6:45 in the morning.

Good servant, bad master

“Economies are supposed to serve human ends, not the other way round. We forget at our peril that markets make a good servant, a bad master and a worse religion.”

Tour the known universe in 6 1/2 minutes

Very geeky but amazing. Be sure to watch it full screen.

From the site:

The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.

My 2010 calendar

Every year I make a calendar from my photos. This year, I tried a new source (Qoop.com), and it came out pretty good.

Most of the shots are from Maine, and all were taken in the corresponding month of 2009. Anybody can purchase a calendar at my cost ($14.99).
