Photographing the Glowy Life at the Bottom of the Ocean

Working near the Philippines and Thailand, British scuba diver and diving instructor Alex Tyrrell had plenty of opportunity to capture photographs of ocean life in a way that is a rare sight. Seen under normal light, these creatures would perhaps not command so much attention, but presented with filters, they look stunningly out of the world.

This is What Greenland Would Look Like if it Weren’t Buried Under Ice

Here’s a topographic map that shows what Greenland would look like if it weren’t buried under a sheet of ice. This map comes as a result of a study led by geographer Jonathan Bamber. The study mapped an enormous valley in the middle of Greenland. The chasm is 2600 feet deep and 8 miles wide, plus covering 460 miles, it is the largest known canyon in the world. This would have been carved by flowing water millions of years ago. Especially, since it has been under layers of ice for the past 1.8 million years.

Odd Lamps Made From Vintage and Antique Objects

Here at Randommization, we love nothing more than doses of serendipity, and these lamps seem so random at the first glance, they’re just right up our alley.

Built quite imaginatively or with a seemingly eccentric flair, these lamps don’t fail in developing interest. Available from the artist’s Etsy shop.

Time Lapse Image From Space Shows A ‘Breathing’ Earth

Had our Earth been one giant living organism, it would breathe, probably something like once a year to maintain its behemoth size. If you would allow for changes in seasons and corresponding change in vegetation and appearance a view, you might find something like a breathing planet, like these images show. The image was created by John Nelson of IDV Solutions. He downloaded cloud free satellite images of the planet for every month, and let them loose in a gif animation that we see here, and in which it appears our beloved planet does breathe.

Bane Mask-like Suit Will Feed You a Steady Diet of Algae

In the future, humans will apparently be up to some weird shit. So, not really much different than what we have been doing all along. What it does seem is that humans will become a race of very hardworking individuals, who wouldn’t have time to sit down for a meal, but would rather chow on algae living in the weird food tubes people would wear all the time.

Praying Mantis Rides a Frog, Crosses Pond [pic]

Words cannot do justice to an image like this, so we’ll stick to the basics. The image captured by photographer Nordin Seruyan, shows a praying mantis riding a frog across a pond. According to the photographer, the pond crossing took 10 minutes, at the end of which the mantis safely reached the other side. The photograph was captured in Borneo, Indonesia.

Photographing an Underwater River

Underwater river? As much of an oxymoron it may sound, something like an “underwater river” can really exist. It’s an illusion, but allow these images to do the idea justice as they present the underwater river very much like it should be. Photographed by Anatoly Beloshchin, the river called Cenote Angelita or “Little Angel” exists in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
