April - Earth Day

Postby Maxim Trevelyan » Mon Apr 03, 2017 9:00 pm

People celebrate our environment, climate and planet on April 22nd, also known as Earth Day.

Did you know that the highest recorded temperature is 56.7°C (134°F), which was measured on 10 July 1913 at Greenland Ranch, Death Valley, California, USA?

In honor of Earth Day, as a reply to this thread, post a photo that in some way reminds you of Earth. If it is unclear from the photo, explain your choice in a couple of sentences.

Photo must be of your own creation and all normal HOL rules apply.

Image

For 15 Hoots and 15 beans, post your photograph (600x600 or less) relating to Earth as a reply to this thread by April 30th 11:59 PM HOL time at the latest.

Thank you Dario!

The flowers are starting on this lovely plant and I went to take pictures. Lo, and behold, a bumblebee shows up! So I took bunches of pictures (and the breeze tossed the flowers and it was so pretty but you don't need to see all the blurs, right?) and finally got one where you can see it, somewhat. Yay? But it was a lovely day today and this is what I see to celebrate Life and Tara.

That picture I took myself. These are also some other pictures that I took ...
This is a poster I have Image

And I have this poster, too

I took this when I was on vacation, it's always nice to see a flower in full bloom, I love the color of this flower. So mild but sweet.

This was the first picture that came into my mind. I took it while walking home from school when I saw how pretty the sky was that afternoon. (Although my neighbours' messy frontyard kind of ruined the view and I had to crop it. :huh: ) I don't go outside much but occasionally I happen to notice something incredibly beautiful in the nature. :wub:

While looking for it, I found two other pictures of things on Earth that I couldn't not show off in here:

Polaris ... I miss my mountains ... thank you for the picture!

I know I already posted a nice blurry picture of a bumble bee and flowers, but I also took this one (which isn't so blurry) and it's fairly close to where I live which is why I can live here just fine too. Image

I'm really liking this picture I took in the morning when all of these rainbows were created in my class building! Earth truly allows a lot of cool things to happen!

Here's another of some icicles hanging off my car this winter that I thought were really cool.

And then last, but not least, a sunset from one of my first months at college!

This is not for Hoots or Beans.
Arianna asked me where I found a particular token for the Earth Day Visual Sudoku so I thought I'd post the most interesting ones here:
