Happy Earth Day :)

zemlja

It is spring here in full bloom, and I know I am not here. Maybe even you noticed my dear blogger friends. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have lots and lots of great photos I made but this beautiful green scenario that is going on outside my windows is keeping me away from computer. Not that I complain, and rest assure that I will be back. In Schwarzenegger’s voice. Just so you know how serious I am. ๐Ÿ˜€

But, I could not miss the chance to somehow pay tribute to Earth Day, celebrating something kind of important. You know, nothing big, just our home in this universe. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here is the post from last year, where you can find out about meditation page Master Shift. There is no bad day to find out about them honestly, so let it maybe be today. ๐Ÿ™‚ LAST YEAR POST

So, enjoy, have fun, LIVE FOR TODAY because that is all we really have.

Love ya,

Ivy

And the next second the moment was gone | Ephemeral

And the next second the Sun was behind the horizon.

Balloon is filled with a bit of helium. Cat is confused. ๐Ÿ˜€ (On the balloon it says “Happy Birthday”)

IMG_0358It looked like a storm is coming but the clouds just passed through. (My favorite thing in this photo is the nest you can see in the branches of a tree. Spring is coming and the birds are coming back. Taken today.)

And finally, my photo of the eclipse taken on a home-made projector from paper. I eliminated light sources in the photo. This, ladies and gentleman is the Solar eclipse of 2015. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Where are my glasses?

This is from Marilyn’s post, but it could oh so easily be mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

I lost my prescription sunglasses during the wild and crazy weeks of October 2014ย during which we wereย on the road mostย of the time. I donโ€™t know precisely when they vanishedย or where.

OK, I took third and fourth sentence but I felt it needed some explanation. I don’t feel the need to include this in my post, since every half an hour my sentence in real life is “Where are my glasses?”

I am a member of “I lose my glasses AT LEAST three times a day” group on Facebook, it is THAT serious. And, in fact I don’t have them on right now. Where are they?

Just a sec…

Found them. On a table. Three rooms away.

So, If by any chance I end up on a road for some time, this sentence could became mine.

Also, I found incredible page with stunning photos every day which have provided my curious mind with incredible photos of a Solar Eclipse from few days ago. Do check it out if you like awesome stuff: APOD.nasa

Solar Eclipse 20.03.2015.

Hey! I really had to come here just to post this, I would not be me if I didn’t. ๐Ÿ˜€

Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse!

AND it is visible in Europe! For the first time since 1999.! Which I remember, by the way. ๐Ÿ™‚ That does not mean that there were no Solar Eclipses in between (2006., 2011.) but none as visible as the one in 1999.

YAY!

Here is the map of where it will be visible and I think you can get the info of when at your local online media.

And now, lets get more sciency. Is that a word? Now it is. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What causes a solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse happens whenever the new moon passes in front of the sun, and the moonโ€™s shadow falls on our planet. A solar eclipse is only possible at new moon because thatโ€™s the only time whereby the moon to go in front of the sun, as seen from Earth. Most of the time, however, the new moon either swings north or south of the solar disk, so no eclipse of the sun takes place.

Why new moon? On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. (source: earthsky.org)

Protect your eyes.

Do not look directly at the Sun. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It causes permanent damage to your eye and possible blindness. That is no fun. That’s why you can look at the Solar Eclipse through glasses design for it and better telescopes with filters design for it. Also, you can catch a glimpse through a glass covered in carbon black, but that is not recommended. The best way to look at it is to make your projector. It is simple and instructions are here: MAKE YOUR PROJECTOR

Oh I can’t wait for professional photos of tomorrows Solar Eclipse and images from ISS (International Space Station) ๐Ÿ˜€

Orange. What was first, the color or the name?

IMG_0m882

I love taking photos like this one… When I don’t have to do ANY editing whatsoever, none. ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, I totally like the orange theme! It seems that I am surrounded with it since I saw it everywhere when I read this week’s theme for DPchallenge.

Enjoy in my gallery of “orange” while I go and eat one ๐Ÿ˜Ž

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Orange you glad itโ€™s photo challengeย time?.”

White and Lilac

_MG_0081

Some things are new, even though we know they are coming. Spring is coming, but knowing that does not diminish the fact that I love to see spring flowers blossom… It’s magical. I had to take few with me from the meadows of white and lilac waking flowers (saffron).

Here I Am.

IMG_0213

I completely understand why famous people love to have their hand print made. It’s so powerful. Like you did something important, left your trail… ๐Ÿ™‚

Although mine imprint is in snow I hope I will make some real difference in my life and lives of people around me, maybe even for people I don’t know all around the world. It’s cool to think about it.

This is an entry for WPC: Depth and below is entry for Scale.

Is it a underwater photo? How big it is?

You probably know what it is because of the photo above, but it’s still fun to imagine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Btw, I am better. ๐Ÿ™‚

A Cloud Has Landed

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Shadowed.”

IMG_0138

I like fog. It is both scary (specially if you’re driving) and fun… You can imagine different scenery around you, different view on the streets you watch every day. The photo is taken 20th November spontaneously, my sis is checking out the weather AND posing without knowing. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have caught a bad cold, so I’m off to bed with my tea. Don’t worry, your comments are waiting for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays… I saw the life inside

New.

IMG_0172

What says new beginning more than a sunrise? New Year. New human life. (Read on the whole post ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) My resolution to post more of my photos here. There is and won’t be nothing “new” about this Year if I don’t choose to make it so.ย 

I love sunrises and it is somewhat rare for me to see them – I am a night owl most of the time. ๐Ÿ™‚ So, these moments are very special, especially because I photographed this sunrise when i woke up and not when I was going to bed after all night making love to the internet. ๐Ÿ˜€

I took it on December 30. It started snowing here on December 27 and it didn’t stop for two days. So I woke up on December 30 and saw sun rays piercing through my blinds. You can see on my header how much I love sunrises (and sunsets) and you can maybe see comparing the two photos how much more south the Sun rises in the winter.

Also, I have a happy news, another new begining. ๐Ÿ˜€ My cousin, daughter from my father’s sister gave birth to the cutest baby boy yesterday! โค They are both fine and this just feels me with joy hehe ๐Ÿ˜€

Also, I have been yearning to listen to this song for some reason.

p.s. The title is from the lyrics of the song. ๐Ÿ™‚
