The Big Picture has a wonderful collection of Dogs in the news, everything from bomb-sniffing military dogs to affected by floods and other disasters.
The Big Picture has an absolutely stunning collection of aerial images of housing and other human created landscapes in southwest Florida. I love this stuff, reminds me of macro images of microprocessors.
The Big Picture has a great collection of dog sledding images from various parts of the world.
The Big Picture: Autumn scenes.
Spectacular fall photography. Dang, that last picture is killer but so are all of them. I guess I’ll bring my camera up to Greylock this weekend.
Another excellent collection of images that help frame this painful memory.
The Big Picture: Dance around the world.
Incredible, especially #7, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater members Antonio Douthit, Glenn Allen Sims and Kirven Boyd. Picture by Andrew Eccles.
The Big Picture has a fantastic set of images from photographer Jason Hawkes: Human landscapes from above.
Note and click on the “google maps” links on the bottom of many of the images. Wonderful to be able to see where they were taken and browse around those areas.
On February 28th, a team of four Spanish teenage students and their instructor from IES La Bisbal school in Catalonia launched a weather probe they designed and built themselves. Their helium-filled balloon carried a payload of electronics and a camera to take atmospheric measurements and photographs throughout the trip. After getting permission from aviation officials and getting good weather, they released the probe on a trip that took it over 30,000 meters (19 miles) above sea level, through winds gusting up to 100 kph, and temperatures reaching -54C (-65.2F), and traveling 38 kilometers overland in a time of 2 hours and 10 minutes.
Wow, this has gone viral and it makes me incredibly happy. Could not have happened to a better group of folks. Congratulations all.
As expected, The Big Picture has the best set of images of The Inauguration of President Barack Obama
Wonderful collection and these pictures really do capture the spirit of the day.
