Fascinating Pictures

Women practice yoga during a performance on a glass bridge
 at the Shiniuzhai National Geo-park in Pingjiang County,
 Hunan Province, China, on November 5, 2015.
 About one hundred yoga fans put on the show to promote
 the concept of green life and the idea of harmony 

While shooting the majestic Southern Stingray
 in the crystal clear water of the Sandbar in Grand Cayman, 
 this newlywed couple arrived—
the bride was still in her wedding dress!

 This shot,  captures the beginning of a new life together
, one where a couple will brave the troubles 
of the world hand-in-hand. 
The couple marches confidently towards the clouds
 in the frame ignoring the beasts at their feet;
 this is an adventure they will seek together.

A large cluster of marine life enjoys a massive feeding frenzy 
below the monolithic Eddystone Rock. 
The area is about 26 kilometers off Tasmania's South East Cape 
and is truly a wild location. 

Aerial shot taken over Toronto, Canada. 

This curious humpback put on quite a show 
 It swam back and forth between  boat and the small raft several times, 
stopping by each one and spy-hoping to get a better view. 
It was truly a magical day.
 Photographed near Mala, Hawaii.

This phenomenon occurs a few days a year during the winter solstice
 and when weather conditions are perfect 
for the alignment to happen.

How Italians Learn To Talk

A cute little two year old girl having a conversation 
with her great grandmother shows us how
 Italians learn to talk with their hands. 
This communication skill is carefully passed from one generation
 to another and it is practiced until it is perfected.
 The little girl is doing great

Kevin Spacey ‘Beyond The Sea’

Kevin Spacey is not only an amazing actor
 but the guy can actually sing. 
Here he covers the song ‘Beyond The Sea’.
 ‘Beyond the Sea’ is a 1946 contemporary pop romantic
 love song by Jack Lawrence, with music taken from
 the song ‘La Mer’ by Charles Trenet.
 Trenet had composed ‘La Mer’ (which means ‘the Sea’
) with French lyrics completely different and unrelated
 to the English-language version that Lawrence later wrote.
 It has been recorded by many artists,
 but Bobby Darin's version released in 1959 
is the best known by many,
 reaching no. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.


last but not least 
some great pictures
