Back in the late 80’s I fell in love with a recording of Latin American harp music. It has taken me more than twenty-five years to discover its identity. Today I am very happy to say I’ve found it.
Whether they’re wet (river deltas, tidal channels) or dry (desert, erosion), I never cease to be fascinated by these images. The first two even have ‘leaves’ and are especially beautiful:

In mid-November NASA released an ultra-high-resolution computer model simulating how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe. It is visually stunning – all those colours and swirls and detail – see for yourself:
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
