Earth & Sky

The video displays the winners and other notable photographs of the 5th International Earth and Sky Photo Contest, featuring awe-inspiring nightscapes from all over the world. The contest highlighted a style known as “landscape astrophotography”, which combines elements of the night sky and the Earth’s horizon.

The contest is a collaboration between The Earth At Night (TWAN), the National Optical Astronomy Observatory and Astronauts Without Borders. These sponsors aim to raise awareness of issues dealing with light pollution.

Light pollution (excessive light that scatters to the sky instead of illuminating the ground) not only is a major waste of energy, it also obscures the stars, interferes with astronomical observatories and, like any other form of pollution, disrupts ecosystems and has adverse health effects.

This year’s contest consisted of more than 1000 entries, from both professional and amateur/hobby photographers from 55 countries around the world.

Road Trip to OKC

My family and I took a road trip from Atlanta, GA to Oklahoma City, OK this past weekend. We were quite reluctant to make the trip after all the tornadoes effecting the area, but luckily we found beautiful weather throughout the journey. I thought I would share some of the pictures I captured throughout the trip.

Tapis Rouge

jaujac_tapis_rouge_villedary5

I am absolutely enamored by this grass carpeted path, called Tapis Rouge, created by Gaëlle Villedary in the French village of Jaujac. The path itself is described as a

“piece of nature designed to create a communion between nature and man through art.”

The carpet uses 3.5 tons of natural material spanning over 1,400 feet through the old town. It runs up inclined curves, along a tiny roadway, up and over stairs and even under the split roots of an old tree.

Despite its name, Tapis Rouge (Red Carpet), the softness of the lawn is irresistible to those moving on foot and rather harkens the sentiments an organic Yellow Brick Road whose end is undefined, where the possibilities of adventure are limitless.- enpundit

Gregory Thielker

An American hyperrealist artist, Gregory Thielker quite successfully whisks’ me to another time and place. These alluring paintings make me long for road trips with no end in sight…

Thielker’s series, Under the Unminding Sky, captures the literal fluidity and the emotionally bearings of one driving in the rain.

These paintings reflect my interest in the way that the road delineates and controls how we experience landscape. From the roadway perspective, we not only travel from one place to another, we see landscape in a varied and complex manner. I use water on the windshield to create a shifting lens for the way we see the environment: it both highlights and obscures our viewing. Perspectives slip and compress, while shapes and colors merge into one another. I also work with relationships between surface and depth, between flatness and illusion. These images are born out of real experience and have a close relationship with the medium of painting: its fluidity, transparency, and capacity for layering, mixing, and blending. – Gregory Thielker
