Joshua Tree Park Canvas Prints

Joshua Tree Park Canvas Prints
Joshua Tree National Park is immense, nearly 800,000 acres, and infinitely variable. It can seem unwelcoming, even brutal during the heat of summer when, in fact, it is delicate and extremely fragile. This is a land shaped by strong winds, sudden torrents of rain, and climatic extremes. Rainfall is sparse and unpredictable. Streambeds are usually dry and waterholes are few. Viewed in summer, this land may appear defeated and dead, but within this parched environment are intricate living systems waiting for the opportune moment to reproduce. The individuals, both plant and animal, that inhabit the park are not individualists. They depend on their entire ecosystem for survival. The higher and cooler Mojave Desert is the special habitat of Yucca brevifolia, the Joshua tree for which the park is named. It occurs in patterns from dense forests to distantly spaced specimens. In addition to Joshua tree forests, the western part of the park includes some of the most interesting geologic displays found in Californias deserts. The dominant geologic features of this landscape are hills of bare rock, usually broken up into loose boulders. These hills are popular amongst rock climbing and scrambling enthusiasts. The flatland between these hills is sparsely forested with Joshua trees. Together with the boulder piles and Skull Rock, the trees make the landscape otherworldly. For all its harshness, the desert is a land of surprising variety and complexity, a land of extreme fragility. Viewed from the roadside, Joshua Tree National Park only hints at its hidden vitality. Two deserts, two large ecosystems primarily determined by elevation, come together in the park. Few areas more vividly illustrate the contrast between high and low desert.

While some beaches may boast softer granules than others, the basic fact remains, you will find consistently whiter-than-white powder sand and luminous cyan-blue water like this almost nowhere else on earth. This fact alone is enough to bring over a million people a year to this tiny, remote and otherwise little-known Indian Ocean paradise. Every resort in the Maldives is its own private island, and with over 100 to choose from the only problem is selecting where you want to stay. At the top end, the world’s most exclusive hotel brands compete with each other to attain ever-greater heights of luxury, from personal butlers and private lap pools to in room massages and pillow menus.

Stair Way Rolled Canvas Prints

Stair Way Rolled Canvas Prints

The sun is relentless, stalking me along the narrow, cobbled lanes of Alamos, as return to the hotel. You can see the heavy double doors and walk into the lush, untamed courtyard, where weather-pocked stone cherubs guard a center fountain and rocking chairs sit motionless beneath electric ceiling fans. The economy of Alamos, after a heyday lasting from the late 1600s until the early 1900s with the closing of the mines, went into decline. Only a few hundred people remained in the once vibrant city due to a major decline in silver prices, ongoing unrest in the country with a revolution in progress and the exodus of business owners and people of wealth. A tourist destination in the winter, it would be disgustingly hot and accordingly devoid of visitors in June. The drive almost dumps you into the main square, the Plaza de Armas, surrounded by coffee houses, shops, restaurants, city hall, tourist office and the quaint church. The Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepcion built in the early 19th century, has the traditional exterior look of worn stone silently weathering countless decades, while the interior has a starkly simple, almost contemporary, design. Alamos is known as La Ciudad de los Portales portales are tall, arched, covered verandas or walkways fronting many of the cobble-stoned streets or calles. Alamos boasts numerous buildings exhibiting classic Andalusian architecture from Colonial period, including numerous mansions, the Plaza de Armas, the Church of La Purísima Concepcion, La Capilla and the Palacio Municipal.

Balboa Coastal Canvas Wall Posters

Balboa Coastal Canvas Wall Posters

The Balboa Peninsula is a neighborhood of the city of Newport Beach, Orange County, California. It is named after the Spanish explorer, Vasco Nunez de Balboa. Balboa is primarily residential but has some commercial areas as well. A one-of-a-kind, man-made treasure, Balboa Island is a gem whether you drive, walk, bike or take the Balboa Island Ferry to the island.

The selections on Balboa Island go beyond the local fresh seafood of the day with flavors of Italian, Mexican, and French-Swiss mixed in to the culinary choices. The Balboa Peninsula is home to many sit down restaurants and quick food stops for people hitting the sand for a day at Balboa Beach, and the variety of bars and live music makes the Peninsula a regional nightlife destination. The Balboa Fun Zone is one of the most well-known Newport Beach attractions. Balboa Pier and Peninsula Park in Newport Beach make me think of the good ‘ole days at the beach. There are always families wandering around the shops and restaurants, kids riding bikes, and tourists visiting from out of town. On the summer day we visited, Junior Lifeguards were there, in force.

Pipiwai Trail Wall Art Prints

Pipiwai Trail Wall Art Prints

Pipiwai Trail is a treasure of the National Park System that passes through diverse scenery and culminates at the base of an absolutely spectacular waterfall. The Pipiwai Trail offers, hands-down, the all-around best of East Maui’s most dramatic stream and waterfall hikes. The Pipiwai Trail is one of the finest hikes in Hawaii. The Pipiwai Trail is located in southeast Maui. It is within Haleakala National Park in the area called Kipahulu. The Pipiwai Trail is a 4-mile hike that takes about 2 hours to complete. If you want to linger in the forest, you could spend up to 4 hours on this trail exploring the terrain and not be bored. The Pipiwai Trail is located towards the end of the “Road to Hana” on Maui. There is no swimming hole at the bottom of Waimoku Falls. A favorite Maui hike, yet for some people the drive to the trailhead alone is excitement enough. This idyllic 1.8 mile trail unfolds alongside a string of pools and waterfalls of the lush tropical rainforest. The dramatic diversity then suddenly morphs into the zen-oneness of an immense bamboo forest. The bamboo will become thicker, and the ambiance and hollow percussive sounds of bamboo striking one another, will begin to transport you to an Asian nether-world. There are several great waterfalls along the route with the final destination fall being Waimoku Falls, falling 400-feet down a sheer lava rock wall shaped like a horse shoe. If it has been wet in the area recently, you can additionally find yourself surrounded by numerous small waterfalls on the surrounding cliff face. This is an absolutely beautiful falls and well worth the hike to get to it.

Zion Splendor Rolled Wall Prints

Zion Splendor Rolled Wall Prints
The Zion Narrows route is the most popular hike in Zion Park, and one of the worlds best canyon hikes. It is pure fun and can be tailored to suit any ability level. The trail is the Virgin River. In fact, the cool water makes this hike particularly pleasant during the hot months of summer. The Narrows in Zion National Park is a section of canyon on the North Fork of the Virgin River. The hike of The Narrows is one of the premier hikes on the Colorado Plateau. Most people hike in casually from the bottom, going as far as they feel comfortable or have time and then turning back. Serious hikers start at the top and do the entire 16 miles as a long day hike or an overnight backpack. People can plan on spending most of time in the water and the remaining time walking on the riverbank. For most of the hike the water is less than knee deep, but there is always the chance you will step into a pool that is waist deep or deeper. The longest exposure to waist deep water is usually only about 20 yards. The Narrows is one of the most unusual hikes on the Colorado Plateau. Hiking is done largely in the river as, for a third of the route, the river runs canyon wall to canyon wall. The walls are vertical and sheer and often red in color. Water levels change from season to season, most hikers will wade at least waist deep and many will swim a few short sections. Stay in the flood plain to avoid trampling fragile vegetation on the benches above the river. The farther one goes upstream, the less crowded the canyon becomes. Hiking in the river is strenuous. The water is often murky and the bottom of the river is covered with round, basalt rocks about the size of bowling balls.

A pier is a raised structure typically supported by well spaced piles or pillars. Bridges, buildings, and walkways may all be supported by piers. Their open structure allows tides and currents to flow relatively unhindered, whereas the more solid foundations of closely spaced piles of a wharf can act as a breakwater and are consequently more liable to silting. Piers can range in size and complexity from a simple lightweight wooden structure to major structures extended over 1600 meters. Pier may be synonymous with dock. Piers have been built for several purposes and because these different purposes have distinct regional variances, the term pier tends to have different nuances of meaning in different parts of the world. Piers can be categorized into different groupings according to the principal purpose. Pleasure piers often also allow for the docking of pleasure steamers and other similar craft, while working piers have often been converted to leisure use after being rendered obsolete by advanced developments in cargo handling technology. Many piers are floating piers, to ensure that the piers raise and lower with the tide along with the boats tied to them. This prevents a situation where lines become overly taut or loose by raising or lowering tides. An overly taut or loose tie line can damage boats by pulling them out of the water or allowing them so much leeway that they bang forcefully against the sides of the pier. Many piers are built for the purpose of providing boat less angler access to fishing grounds that are otherwise inaccessible.

Fire And Ice Wrapped Canvas Prints

Fire And Ice Wrapped Canvas Prints

Ocean waves are defined as a collection of dislocated water parcels that undergo a cycle of being forced passed their normal position and being restored back to their normal position. Wind caused ripples and eddies form waves that gradually gain speed and distance. Waves increase in energy and speed, and then become longer and stronger. The fully developed sea has the strongest wave action that experiences storms lasting 10 hours and creates 15 meter wave heights in the open ocean. The waves created in the open ocean are classified as deep water waves. Deep water waves have no bottom interaction and the orbits of these water molecules are circular, their wavelength is short relative to water depth and the velocity decays before the reaching the bottom of the water basin. Wind forces waves to break in the deep sea. Deep water waves travel to shore and become shallow water waves. Shallow wavelengths are long relative to water depth and have elliptical orbital. The wave velocity affects the entire water basin. The water interacts with the bottom as it approaches shore and has a drag interaction. The drag interaction pulls on the bottom of the wave, causes refraction, increases the height, and decreases the celerity and the top fall over. This phenomenon happens because the velocity of the top of the wave is greater than the velocity of the bottom of the wave. This speed is relative because local onshore winds can cause waves to break. In the surf zone, shallow water waves are carried by global winds to the beach and interact with local winds to make surfing waves.

Fall colored aspens Rolled Canvas Prints

Fall colored aspens Rolled Canvas Prints
Aspen is a common name for certain tree species; some, but not all, are classified by botanists in the section Populus, of the Populus genus. The aspens are all native to cold regions with cool summers, in the north of the Northern Hemisphere, extending south at high altitudes in the mountains. They are all medium-sized deciduous trees reaching 15–30 m (49–98 ft) tall. All of the aspens typically grow in large clonal colonies, derived from a single seedling, and spread by means of root suckers; new stems in the colony may appear at up to 30–40 m (98–131 ft) from the parent tree. Each individual tree can live for 40–150 years above ground, but the root system of the colony is long-lived. In some cases, this is for thousands of years, sending up new trunks as the older trunks die off above ground. For this reason, it is considered to be an indicator of ancient woodlands. One such colony in Utah, given the nickname of “Pando”, is estimated to be 80,000 years old,[2] making it possibly the oldest living colony of aspens. Some aspen colonies become very large with time, spreading about 1 m (3.3 ft) per year, eventually covering many hectares. They are able to survive forest fires, because the roots are below the heat of the fire, with new sprouts growing after the fire burns out. Aspens do not thrive in the shade, and it is difficult for seedlings to grow in an already mature aspen stand. Fire indirectly benefits aspen trees, since it allows the saplings to flourish in open sunlight in the burned landscape. Lately, aspens have an increased popularity in forestry, mostly because of their fast growth rate and ability to regenerate from sprouts, making the reforestation after harvesting much cheaper, since no planting or sowing is required. In contrast with many trees, aspen bark is base-rich,[clarification needed] meaning aspens are important hosts for bryophytes[3] and act as food plants for the larvae of butterfly (Lepidoptera) species—see List of Lepidoptera that feed on poplars. Young aspen bark is an important seasonal forage for the European hare and other animals in early spring. Aspen is also a tree of choice of the European beaver.

Golden Gate Starfish Canvas Prints

Golden Gate Starfish Canvas Prints

Starfish or sea stars are star-shaped echinoderms belonging to the class Asteroidea. Common usage frequently finds these names being also applied to ophiuroids, which are correctly referred to as brittle stars or basket stars. About 1,500 species of starfish occur on the seabed in all the world oceans, from the tropics to frigid polar waters. Starfish are marine invertebrates. They typically have a central disc and five arms, though some species have a larger number of arms. The aboral or upper surface may be smooth, granular or spiny, and is covered with overlapping plates. Many species are brightly colored in various shades of red or orange, while others are blue, grey or brown. Starfish have tube feet operated by a hydraulic system and a mouth at the centre of the oral or lower surface. They are opportunistic feeders and are mostly predators on benthic invertebrates. Several species have specialized feeding behaviors including aversion of their stomachs and suspension feeding. They have complex life cycles and can reproduce both sexually and asexually. Most can regenerate damaged parts or lost arms and they can shed arms as a means of defense. The fossil record for starfish is ancient, dating back to the Ordovician around 450 million years ago, but it is rather poor, as starfish tend to disintegrate after death. Only the ossicles and spines of the animal are likely to be preserved, making remains hard to locate.

Napa Barrel Wrapped Canvas Prints

Napa Barrel Wrapped Canvas Prints

The barrel was a standard size of measure referring to a set capacity or weight of a given commodity. Since medieval times the term barrel as a unit of measure has had various meanings throughout the country, ranging from about 100 liters to 1000 liters or more in special cases. The name was derived in medieval times. In most countries such usage is obsolescent, increasingly superseded by units. Beverages aged in wooden barrels take on some of the compounds in the barrel, such as vanillin and wood tannins. The presence of these compounds depends on many factors, including the place of origin, how the staves were cut and dried, and the degree applied during manufacture. The type of wood used to make a barrel can impact both the flavor compounds that the barrel can provide as well as the rates at which gasses are allowed to penetrate through the wood. The characteristics of a given wood are dependent on the species used but also on factors such as more local conditions where the wood was grown in addition to the seasoning and toasting process. A number of wood products are available to home brewers to get wood characteristics without using a barrel. While barrel flavors are generally not the primary goal of funky beer brewers who use barrels for fermentation and aging, wood can contribute some of the additional characteristics that barrels offer and can also be used to house microbes in a similar way to a barrel.

Stream Dance Rolled Canvas Prints

Stream Dance Rolled Canvas Prints
A stream is a body of water with a current, confined within a bed and stream banks. Depending on its location or certain characteristics, a stream may be referred to as a branch, brook, beck, burn, creek, crick, stream age, wash, run, or runnel. Streams are important as conduits in the water cycle, instruments in groundwater recharge, and corridors for fish and wildlife migration. The biological habitat in the immediate vicinity of a stream is called a riparian zone. The study of streams and waterways in general is known as surface hydrology and is a core element of environmental geography. A stream is smaller than a creek, especially one that is fed by a spring or seep. It is usually small and easily forded. Streams typically derive most of their water from precipitation in the form of rain and snow. Most of this water re-enters the atmosphere bye evaporation from soil and water bodies. Some of the water proceeds to sink into the earth by infiltration and becomes groundwater, much of which eventually enters streams. Some precipitated water is temporarily locked up in snow fields and glaciers, to be released later by evaporation or melting. The rest of the water flows off the land as runoff, the proportion of which varies according to many factors, such as wind, humidity, vegetation, rock types, and relief. This runoff starts as a thin film called sheet wash, combined with a network of tiny rills, when this water is concentrated in a channel, a stream has its birth. Some creeks may start from ponds or lakes. Streams can carry sediment, or alluvium. The amounts of load it can carry as well as the largest object it can carry are both dependent on the velocity of the stream.

Santa Monica Pier Wall Hangings

Santa Monica Pier Wall Hangings

The Santa Monica Pier is a large double-jointed pier located at the foot of Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica, California. With an iconic entrance, the pier is popular with residents and visitors as a landmark that is over 100 years old. Just north of Venice Beach is Santa Monica State Beach along Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica between Venice and Malibu. Three and a half miles of white sandy shoreline stretch along either side of the historic Santa Monica Pier. Ample parking, well kept restrooms and several beach-side cafes make this a family-friendly beach. Visitors can bike, rollerblade or walk along a paved path. Several volleyball courts lining the beach are open to the public and free of charge. Stop by the Annenberg Community Beach House to rent chairs and umbrellas, enjoy a dip in the community pool or take the kids to the water playground built just for them. The pier contains Pacific Park, a family amusement park with its one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art, solar paneled Ferris wheel. It also has an original carousel hippodrome from the 1920s, the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium operated by Heal the Bay, shops, entertainers, a video arcade, a trapeze school, pubs, and restaurants. The west end of the pier is a popular location for anglers. During the summer months the pier is venue to weekly outdoor concerts, movies, and other family friendly activities, many that are free to the public. Santa Monica Pier has indeed come a long way. It stands as a memorial of its glorious past and a statement of many more magnificent years to come.

Waterfall Canvas Paintings

Waterfall Canvas Paintings

In Costa Rica, dozens of mountain springs, streams, and rivers snake through the forest, and with so much freshwater, Costa Rica has managed to meet a significant portion of its energy needs through the generation of hydroelectric power. As runoff moves through lush terrain on its way out to sea, hundreds of cascading waterfalls can be found throughout the rainforests and mountainous areas. Numerous waterfalls are unknown or remain closed to the public, but many breath-taking ones make great destinations for a day hike and refreshing afternoon swim. Set at a short distance from the town of La Fortuna, the La Fortuna waterfall emerges from dense jungle greenery before plummeting some 200 feet into an emerald pool below. The fall can be arrived at by foot or on horseback. The trail runs through pasture and rainforest, offering up chances to spot toucans, monkeys, and other tropical creatures. It takes about 15 minutes to hike down the stair set to the waterfall and an hour to arrive by horse. For more information on visiting the waterfall by horseback, please visit our page on the Horseback Ride to the La Fortuna Waterfall. A local non-profit association administers the waterfall. The entrance fee is $8, with all proceeds being reinvested into local conservation efforts. Those that have brought along swimming suits and a hearty sense of adventure can swim in the chilly water below the fall. Others can enjoy a picnic along the rocky shoreline or a round of nature photography indeed, it is hard to take a bad picture in a place as beautiful as this.

Lake Mapourika Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints

Lake Mapourika is located on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. It lies north of Franz Josef Glacier, and the out-flowing Okarito River drains it into the Okarito Lagoon. It is the largest of the West Coast lakes, a glacier formation from the last ice age. Since the water from glacial melts no longer drains into the lake, it is filled with fresh rain water which runs though the surrounding forest floor, collecting tannins, giving it its dark color. As the winds of the region sweep high above the mountains of the Southern Alps, the water is left unruffled and quite reflective of the forest on the lake fringes.

Lake Mapourika is a kettle lake. It was formed when a large block of ice was left behind by the retreating Franz Josef Glacier some fourteen thousand years ago. It is ten kilometers north of the Franz Josef Glacier Village on the State Highway. It is the largest lake in the Westland Tai Poutini National Park. The lake is fed by a number of small streams that come from the surrounding bush clad hills. It drains into the Okarito River. Mapourika roughly translates from Maori to English as the “Flower of the Dawn” and dawn is an excellent time to go fishing on the lake. If you are feeling energetic you can hire a freedom kayak, or take a guided kayak tour. A more relaxed way to see the lake is on a boat cruise or from one of the two picnic areas. Whichever you choose be sure to look out for the abundant bird life!

UmaUma Falls Hawaii Canvas Prints

UmaUma Falls Hawaii Canvas Prints
They are unique in Hawaii as being a series of three waterfalls in close proximity. They are easily viewed from an overlook located on private botanical garden property accessible for a fee. The overlook was constructed in 1996 by Walter L. Wagner who was developing the World Botanical Gardens with the waterfalls overlook as part of the tourist attraction. Subsequently, the waterfall overlook ownership was transferred circa 2008, and access to the overlook is now through Umauma Experience (also a botanical garden), and not through World Botanical Gardens. The Umauma Falls and River has been forming since the Mauna Kea volcano on which flank it flows slowly emerged from the sea beginning millions of years ago. During this period, the volcano formed alternating layers of volcanic ash or solidified lava, forming distinct layers that can erode at different rates. Eventually, Mauna Kea reached its current height, and entered a ‘final phase’ of primarily cinder cone eruptions from the flanks of Mauna Kea, which also deposited a 10-meter thick layer of ash, which is now the fertile soil presently found on the relatively level or gentle-slope portions. Due to the flow of the trade-winds, the southern regions of the eastern flank of Mauna Kea have higher rainfalls than the northern regions. The Umauma River is at the dividing line between heavy rains to the south, and lighter rains to the north. The word Umauma means ‘constantly flowing’ in the Hawaiian language, and it is the most northernly river to have a continuous flow and not dry up during the dry season.

The Great Smoky Mountains are a mountain range rising along the Tennessee–North Carolina border in the southeastern United States. They are a sub range of the Appalachian Mountains, and form part of the Blue Ridge Physiographic Province. The range is sometimes called the Smoky Mountains and the name is commonly shortened to the Smokies. The Great Smokies are best known as the home of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which protects most of the range. The park was established in 1934, and, with over 9 million visits per year, it is the most-visited national park. It was the first national park whose land and other costs were paid for in part with federal funds, previous parks were funded wholly with state money or private funds. Great Smoky Mountains National Park is comprised of ridge upon ridge of seemingly endless forest on the border between North Carolina and Tennessee. World renowned for the diversity of its plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains and its history of southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is the most visited national park. With nearly 80 historic buildings, spectacular displays of wildflowers, and abundant wildlife, Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers a myriad of activities to enjoy. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a major tourist attraction in the region. Cove hardwood forests, which are native to Southern Appalachia, are among the most diverse forest types in North America. The cove hardwood forests of the Smokies are mostly second-growth.

Tulip Mt Vernon Washington Canvas Prints

Tulip Mt Vernon Washington Canvas Prints
A flower, sometimes known as a bloom or blossom, is the reproductive structure found in plants that are floral (plants of the division Magnoliophyta, also called angiosperms). The biological function of a flower is to effect reproduction, usually by providing a mechanism for the union of sperm with eggs. Flowers may facilitate outcrossing (fusion of sperm and eggs from different individuals in a population) or allow selfing (fusion of sperm and egg from the same flower). Some flowers produce diaspores without fertilization (parthenocarpy). Flowers contain sporangia and are the site where gametophytes develop. Many flowers have evolved to be attractive to animals, so as to cause them to be vectors for the transfer of pollen. After fertilization, the ovary of the flower develops into fruit containing seeds. In addition to facilitating the reproduction of flowering plants, flowers have long been admired and used by humans to beautify their environment, and also as objects of romance, ritual, religion, medicine and as a source of food. The essential parts of a flower can be considered in two parts: the vegetative part, consisting of petals and associated structures in the perianth, and the reproductive parts. A stereotypical flower consists of four kinds of structures attached to the tip of a short stalk. Each of these kinds of parts is arranged in a whorl on the receptacle. Although the arrangement described above is considered “typical”, plant species show a wide variation in floral structure. These modifications have significance in the evolution of flowering plants and are used extensively by botanists to establish relationships among plant species.

Orange Dahlia Flower Canvas Print

Orange Dahlia Flower Canvas Print

Dahlia is a genus of bushy, tuberous, herbaceous perennial plants. A member of the Asteraceae dicotyledonous plants, related species include the sunflower, daisy, chrysanthemum, and zinnia. There are 42 species of dahlia, with hybrids commonly grown as garden plants. This great variety results from dahlias being octoploids that is, they have eight sets of homologous chromosomes, whereas most plants have only two. In addition, dahlias also contain many transposons genetic pieces that move from place to place upon an allele which contributes to their manifesting such great diversity. The stems are leafy, ranging in height from as low as 12 in to more than 6–8 ft. The majority of species do not produce scented flowers or cultivars. Like most plants that do not attract pollinating insects through scent, they are brightly colored, displaying most hues, with the exception of blue. The dahlia was declared the national flower of Mexico in 1963. The tubers were grown as a food crop by the Aztecs, but this use largely died out after the Spanish Conquest. Attempts to introduce the tubers as a food crop in Europe were unsuccessful. Perennial plants have mostly tuberous roots. While some have herbaceous stems, others have stems which lignify in the absence of secondary tissue and resprout following winter dormancy, allowing further seasons of growth. As a member of the Asteraceae the flower head is actually a composite with both central disc florets and surrounding ray florets.

Many flowers have evolved to be attractive to animals, so as to cause them to be vectors for the transfer of pollen. The term implies that the plant probably is neither a hybrid nor a selected cultivar that is in any way different from the way it appears in the wild as a native plant, even if it is growing where it would not naturally. The term can refer to the flowering plant as a whole, even when not in bloom, and not just the flower In addition to facilitating the reproduction of flowering plants, flowers have long been admired and used by humans to beautify their environment, and also as objects of romance, ritual, religion, medicine and as a source of food. In modern times people have sought ways to cultivate, buy, wear, or otherwise be around People therefore grow flowers around their homes, dedicate entire parts of their living space to flower gardens, pick wildflowers, or buy flowers from florists who depend on an entire network of commercial growers and shippers to support their trade. Flowers and blooming plants are partly because of their agreeable appearance and smell. Flowers can also be made into herbal teas.

But there is choice beyond the five- and six-star resorts. Other islands cater for families, for divers, for those on a budget, and anyone wanting a tranquil back-to-nature experience. With some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world, the clear waters of the Maldives are a magnet for anyone with an interest in marine life. The gently swaying palm trees, the talcum white sand beaches and an emerald sea on which the sunlight dances, all have quite a mesmerizing effect on the eye of the beholder.

Virgin Islands National Park Canvas Prints

Virgin Islands National Park Canvas Prints

The Virgin Islands National Park is a United States National Park, covering approximately 60% of the island of Saint John in the United States Virgin Islands, plus nearly all of Hassel Island, just off the Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas harbor. The park is famous for scuba diving and snorkeling and has miles of hiking trails through the tropical rainforest. Ferries from Red Hook and Charlotte Amalie on Saint Thomas make regular stops at Cruz Bay, Saint John, near the park, which averages about 500,000 visitors per year. One of the Virgin Islands National Park’s most famous attractions is Trunk Bay, which sports a white sand beach and an underwater snorkeling trail, although the trail’s chronic overuse has led to extensive coral damage along its path. The park includes the sugar-plantation-ruins-littered Cinnamon Bay Nature Trail and the Bordeaux Mountain Trail that leads to the highest point on the island at 1,277 feet (389 m) above sea level, and whose view is best described as “what you must see from heaven”. The most popular hike, however, is the Reef Bay Trail. This route paves the way to witnessing the beauty of the surrounding forestlands, remnants of sugar mills, historical Taíno petroglyph rock carvings, a spring-fed waterfall and reflection pool, and a chance for rest and relaxation or snorkeling excitement at Genti Bay.

Wildflowers Kern County Canvas Prints

A wildflower (or wild flower) is a flower that grows in the wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted. Yet “wildflower” meadows of a few mixed species are sold in seed packets. The term implies that the plant probably is neither a hybrid nor a selected cultivar that is in any way different from the way it appears in the wild as a native plant, even if it is growing where it would not naturally. The term can refer to the flowering plant as a whole, even when not in bloom, and not just the flower. “Wildflower” is not an exact term. Terms like native species (naturally occurring in the area, see flora), exotic or, better, introduced species (not naturally occurring in the area), of which some are labelled invasive species (that out-compete other plants – whether native or not), imported (introduced to an area whether deliberately or accidentally) and naturalized (introduced to an area, but now considered by the public as native) are much more accurate. Kern County is a county located in the U.S. state of California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 839,631. Its county seat is Bakersfield. The county’s economy is heavily linked to agriculture and to petroleum extraction. There is also a strong aviation, space, and military presence, such as Edwards Air Force Base, the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station, and the Mojave Air and Space Port. It is one of the fastest growing areas in the United States in terms of population growth, and suffers from significant water supply issues and poor air quality.

Concrete Ship Wall Art Prints

Concrete Ship Wall Art Prints

The world’s largest concrete ship has been dismantled after spending four decades stranded on the riverbank.

The Gu Tian was abandoned shortly after her maiden voyage in 1974 and has since become a home to squatters and is a local tourist attraction in Fuzhou, capital of southeast China’s Fujian Province. Work to destroy the 3,000 ton concrete boat began in November last year and is finally coming to a close this week. A sign by the edge of the road says that it is the remains of the S.S. Atlantus, one of twelve experimental ships built of concrete during the First World War, but “proven impractical because of weight. Concrete ships are ships built of steel and ferro cement (reinforced concrete) instead of more traditional materials, such as steel or wood. The advantage of ferro cement construction is that materials are cheap and readily available, while the disadvantages are that construction labor costs are high, as are operating costs. During the late 19th century, there were concrete river barges in Europe, and during both World War I and World War II, steel shortages led the US military to order the construction of small fleets of ocean-going concrete ships, the largest of which was the SS Selma. Few concrete ships were completed in time to see wartime service during World War I, but during 1944 and 1945, concrete ships and barges were used to support U.S. and British invasions in Europe and the Pacific. Since the late 1930s, there have also been ferro cement pleasure boats.

A beach is a landform along the coast of an ocean or sea, or the edge of a lake or river. It usually consists of loose particles, which are often composed of rock, such as sand, gravel, shingle, pebbles, or cobblestones. The particles comprising a beach are occasionally biological in origin. Some beaches have man-made infrastructure, such as lifeguard posts, changing rooms, and showers. They may also have hospitality venues nearby. Wild beaches, also known as undeveloped or undiscovered beaches, are not developed in this manner. Wild beaches can be valued for their untouched beauty and preserved nature. There are several conspicuous parts to a beach that relate to the processes that form and shape it. The part mostly above water and more or less actively influenced by the waves at some point in the tide, is termed the beach berm. The berm is the deposit of material comprising the active shoreline. The berm has a crest and a face the latter being the slope leading down towards the water from the crest. At the very bottom of the face, there may be a trough, and further seaward one or more long shore bars, slightly raised, underwater embankments formed where the waves first start to break. The sand deposit may extend well inland from the berm crest, where there may be evidence of one or more older crests resulting from very large storm waves and beyond the influence of the normal waves. At some point the influence of the waves on the material comprising the beach stops, and if the particles are small enough, winds shape the feature.
