These People Turned Log Piling Into An Art Form

These People Turned Log Piling Into An Art FormFor those of you that live in cold climates, the log pile is well known and often taken for granted. A place where logs are chopped and stored, dried out and then used to keep the fire churning throughout the chilly winter months. Log piles are usually neat and orderly, each piece of sliced wood stacked atop the other.

What does your log pile look like? Likely it is just a plain pile of logs, chopped and ready to fuel your fire when the time comes. But for some people, log pilling is a true art form that allows them to express their creative nature. Turns out your standard old log pile can be turned into something pretty incredible.

By slicing wood into different shapes, and sizes, and by combining different shades of wood, artists are able to capture a picture using wood as their canvas and paints.

Check out these incredible log piles that offer more than just the promise of warmth, but the magical feeling that comes with looking at any stunning work of art.

What One Baby Was Found Doing In Norway Shocked People Everywhere.

Say you're strolling along Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock, one of southern Norway's most popular and beautiful tourist destinations. It's a flat, rectangular rock that juts out, dropping off in a sheer, 2,000-foot cliff on three sides, over a swift and powerful fjord.

This Family’s Water Kept Going Missing…So They Set Up A Camera. You Gotta See What It Caught!

This Family’s Water Kept Going Missing…So They Set Up A Camera. You Gotta See What It Caught!A family in Colorado were completely puzzled when water started to go missing from a barrel kept in their backyard. They had no idea where it could be going. They weren’t using it, and there was no way that that much water was evaporating in one day. They were completely stumped but wanted to get to the bottom of the mystery. After refilling the barrel yet again, the family placed a camera outside to record what was causing the water to disappear.

Intricate Ice Crack Patterns on Lake Puma Yumco

Lake Puma Yumco, located on the Tibetan Plateau, is one of the most remote lakes in the world. The lake is 32 km long and 13 km wide and is situated at an altitude of 5,030 meters above sea level. The lake is fed by melting water from the snow-capped surrounding mountains, but it has no outlet. Despite this, the nutrient concentrations in both the water column and lake sediments are extremely low, a condition known as UltraOligotrophy. Water in such lakes tends to be blue to blue-green and to have high clarity due to low levels of photosynthesizing organisms such as phytoplankton. The lake appears bright blue when viewed from above the earth. Indeed, the name Puma Yumco literally means “The Blue Jewel which is floating in the sky”.

Raised Footprints in Snow

In extremely cold places, such as in Antarctica or in high altitudes, sometimes you get to see a peculiar phenomenon – footprints that are raised rather than depressed in the snow. What actually happens is when you step in the snow, the snow gets compressed and hardens, and then the wind blows the loose snow away leaving the once sunken footprints standing hard and proud on the surface. Eventually, the hardened snow gets eroded as well, but it takes weeks or even months. Raised snow footprints can last quite a while before all traces of the footprints are eroded away.

Because it requires more than a gale to blow away snow, raised footprints are often taken as an indicator of windslab and in mountain slopes, as potential avalanche danger. This is why you won’t see raised footprints in your backyard, unless you live in McMurdo.

Absolute Must See...Best Footage of a Volcano Eruption Ever Captured

Absolute Must See...Best Footage of a Volcano Eruption Ever CapturedUnbelievable video….Mount Tavurvur volcano in Papua New Guinea erupts on August 29th, 2014. So cool whatever that phenomena is where the shockwaves magically create a cloud ring. This seems like a relatively small eruption, so it really gives you a new found appreciation for the forces involved in something like Mt. Saint Helens.

Cryoconite Holes on Glaciers

Sometimes the surface of glaciers exhibit peculiar water filled cylindrical holes of varying sizes. At the bottom of these holes, there is usually deposits of dark colored sediments. The rest is filled with melt water. These are called cryoconite holes and are formed due to certain powdery windblown dust, called cryoconite. The name comes from the words “cryo” which means ice, and “conite” which means dust. It was first observed and explained by the Swedish explorer Nils A. E. Nordenskiöld when he traveled on Greenland's icecap in 1870.

Cryoconite dust is made of a combination of small rock particles, soot and microbes which is deposited and builds up on snow, glaciers, or icecaps. Cryoconite may contain dust from far away continental deserts or farmland, particles from volcanic eruptions or power plant emissions, and soot. These dark materials absorb heat from sunlight and causes the ice beneath them to melt, forming long cylindrical holes. As the cryoconite sinks it creates a black layer at the bottom while continuing to melt deep down into the ice.

This Solar Powered Tent Can Power All Your Mobile Gadgets

Please, I want one, where do I sign up?

Now THIS solar powered off grid camping tent is probably the coolest tent I’ve ever seen. I’ve been an outdoorsman all my life and have owned many tents, but this concept is phenomenal. Now, this isn’t designed to haul around the hiking trails, as it would be too heavy for regular hiking/camping trips.

But, it could probably be utilized well at events, and longer term camping. It’s designed to sleep 4 people comfortably, and would supposedly power you mobile devices through the built in solar panel array on the roof. No word on how to order one, or even when it will be in production.

“…The concept garnered significant press for both Orange and the Glastonbury music festival, including mentions in CNet, Engadget, Gizmodo, Treehugger, and IGN. In addition, the Orange Solar Tent was selected as a finalist for the Greener Gadgets 2010 competition…” - kascope.com

No These Aren't Crop Circles, Wait Until You See What This Artist Does In The Snow.

Snow Drawings is an ongoing art project from Sonja Hidrichsen. As you might imagine from the name, Hidrichsen uses wide open landscapes and frozen lakes with fresh snow to create amazing, intricate snow drawings.

Hidrichsen created her first piece of snow art back in 2009 all on her own during an artist residency in Colorado. Since then her snow drawings have gotten bigger, and more ambitious. She now enlists the help of volunteers to help create the drawings. You've seriously got to see them.
