Photograph by Gordon W. Gahan

Statues look down on the rebuilt inner city of Dresden from atop City Hall. The medieval city lost tens of thousands of citizens and nearly every building to heavy Anglo-American bombing near the end of World War II. The restored Church of the Cross stands at left of center.

Alligator Adjusting Its Eggs, Everglades, Florida
Photograph by Chris Johns

Despite 70-odd teeth and a notoriously nasty bite, a female alligator in Florida’s Everglades National Park demonstrates a delicate touch when the time comes for her eggs to hatch. Gently grasping an egg in her mouth, she rolls it on her tongue, feeling for signs of life. If she senses something stirring, she cracks the egg open, then tilts her head forward to let the baby emerge.

正在检查蛋的短吻鳄,大沼泽,佛罗里达
摄影:Chris Johns

尽管因70多颗牙齿和一个危险的短吻而臭名昭著,佛罗里达州大沼泽国家公园里的一条雌性短吻鳄在它的蛋即将破壳之时还是显示出了其动作之细腻。它用嘴轻轻地夹起一个蛋,让它在舌头上滚动,以感知其生命征兆。如果感到里面有剧烈的骚动,它就会弄破蛋壳,并把头前倾让小鳄鱼出来。

Beyond the roar of the Colorado River, a pool of silence. Discovering this hushed limestone sanctuary at Shinumo Wash in Arizona’s Marble Canyon, members of a National Geographic expedition christened it Silver Grotto.

远方传来科罗拉多河的怒吼,一个宁静的小水塘与之形成鲜明对比。一支国家地理探险队的成员们在亚利桑那州大理石峡谷Shinumo冲积带发现了这个安静的石灰岩避难所,并把它命名为银洞。

Velvet Worms, Hamburg, Germany
Photograph by O. Louis Mazzatenta

These intertwined velvet worms, or onychophorans, are living fossils, holdovers of the Cambrian explosion of life-forms that occurred about 530 million years ago. Velvet worms became land dwellers some 250 million years ago but survive today only in dark, moist habitats such as the leaf litter in Costa Rican forests. These worms were photographed at the University of Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany.

天鹅绒虫,汉堡,德国
摄影:O. Louis Mazzatenta

这些彼此缠绕的有爪纲动物天鹅绒虫是约五亿三千万年前寒武纪物种大爆炸留下来的活化石。天鹅绒虫在约两亿五千万年前演化为陆生生物,但延续至今只栖息在阴暗潮湿的地方,比如哥斯达黎加森林里的落叶堆下。这些虫子是在德国的汉堡大学里拍摄的。

湖滨路外拍

Published by under 第三只眼看世界

从家里带回了Z3,我刚到寝室长虹就说今天太阳真好,搞点活动吧,于是拖上轰轰去西湖边外拍。
出门时号称要在滚滚的人头里拍美女,结果又演变成拍水拍太阳外加啃棉花糖。
轰轰在临近结束的时候才发现用400的ISO拍了一下午,在街上大叫悲剧。可怜的小朋友,摸摸头。
今天本来想玩HDR,开了环曝狂按,回来发现从2084拍到了2194,正好111张-_-回寝室做合成才发现不用脚架外加在人头滚滚的地方玩HDR真是悲剧,合成出来张张有鬼影。
Z3的等效420mm的长焦端很爽,但相应的,广角端等效35mm,实在没法用。努力攒钱上DSLR才是王道……然后又是努力攒钱烧镜头,omg

最后留下74张,挑了20张不含另两只ws男的pub,观片请移步http://www.cuilw.com/gallery/v/2009-01-27/
