Umbrella Sky in Agueda, Portugal

1135 Umbrella Sky in Agueda, Portugal

Agueda in Portugal is the setting for this wonderful installation by Sextafeira called Floating Umbrellas. This colorful creation is a part of the Agitagueda art festival. Due to the fact that the same idea was used last year this is the second time the streets of this town have been covered with loads of vivid umbrellas, providing shade, as well as a wonderful sight. The people loved it so much that the repetitive nature of the installation does not carry the risk of becoming boring, but rather turning into a wonderful tradition.

Florida Mailboxes

The Florida Keys are famous for their diving, but they are less well known for another quirky attraction: the mailboxes residents use to decorate their driveways. From a fiberglass manatee in lipstick to a small white church, Reuters photographer Wolfgang Rattay documented this unusual aspect of local culture as he drove along the Ocean Highway that connects the islands.

Gone Fishing – Chinese Style

These pictures shows a two-tonne whale shark being driven through a town in China strapped to a fisherman’s truck. It is a wonder Cai Chengzhu can see where he is going as the giant 4.5m creature’s tail blocks his view of the road, and its head hangs off the back. No doubt surprised by his mega catch, the fishing captain tied the fish down with a sturdy rope and headed for market – apparently unaware it was an endangered and protected animal. Not believing what they were seeing, amused bystanders in Yangzhi county, Fujian province, took photos of the incredible sight and posted them on Sina Weibo, the closest Chinese equivalent to Twitter.

Compelling Portraits of People Who Abandoned Civilization for Life in the Wilderness

139 Compelling Portraits of People Who Abandoned Civilization for Life in the Wilderness

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, most people can only dream about escaping to the quiet isolation of the rural countryside. French photographer Antoine Bruy, however, turned that dream into a reality when he hitchhiked across Europe from 2010 to 2013, wandering through remote mountain regions without any fixed destination or route in mind. Along the way, he met several individuals who had willingly abandoned life in the city and retreated deep into the wilderness, sacrificing modern comforts for greater autonomy and freedom.

Stunning Milky Way Formation Above the Isle of Wight

“Stunning Milky Way formation above the Isle of Wight : The Milky Way shines in mesmerising colourful patterns above the Isle of Wight in these stunning photographs. Photographer Chad Powell used a DSLR camera to capture images of the spectacular constellation above the familiar beach scenes of England’s largest island. The 22-year-old, who shot the pictures over a year of stargazing on the island, often stayed up until dawn to catch the most dramatic sky-scapes.

The DSLR camera enhanced the Milky Way from the white strip visible to the naked eye into an explosion of colourful lights. Photographer Chad, a graphic designer from Ventnor, Isle of Wight, used foregrounds of abandoned theme parks, harbours and lighthouses against the illuminated sky. Chad Powell: “The perfect conditions to take these pictures are a clear sky on a moonless night. Light pollution needs to be minimal too, unfortunately in Britain there are very few areas of dark sky, especially in England”. – Barcroft Media
