Roll Them Bones

These amazing posed skeleton portraits of Patrick Gries breathe life back into stacks of bones.

Through a combination of careful photography with digital editing, Gries was able to breathe action into 300 of the Paris Museum of Natural History’s skeleton specimens (the bones are his, I added the actual photos to show how freakin’ amazing they are).

All (vertebrate) creatures great and small, no matter their shape, no matter than evolutionary history … they all have bones.

You can see them in the book Evolution by Jean-Baptiste de Panafieu, and check out more at Smithsonian.com.

The Most Colorful River in the World

For most of the year, Caño Cristales in Colombia looks like any other river: a bed of rocks covered in dull green mosses are visible below a cool, clear current. However, for a brief period of time every year, the river blossoms in a vibrant explosion of colors. During the short span between the wet and dry seasons, when the water level is just right, a unique species of plant that lines the river floor called Macarenia clavigera turns a brilliant red. It is offset by splotches of yellow and green sand, blue water, and a thousand shades in between.

A phenomenal thing happened at the Grand Canyon last week. Cool, damp air became trapped in the deep canyon, forming an incredible sea of clouds.

The Atlantic put together some of the amazing images taken by Erin Whittaker and Erin Huggins of the National Park Service.
