Additional Details:

  • 01 - This is the seashore off of the Maine coast in the US where I spent my summers growing up.  There are good examples of how granite is eroded and cracked into smaller and smaller pieces from both chemical and physical weathering.
  • 02 - This NASA space suit was on display at the Bourget Air Show in Paris.
  • 03 - Spiders' webs are hard to photograph - they are much easier to get a picture of when they are covered with droplets of dew early in the morning.
  • 04 - This is where milk is put directly after it comes out of the cows.  I took this picture at a friend's dairy farm.  This tank cools the milk and keeps it for a day or two before the big truck comes to take it away.
  • 05 - This photo demonstrates how some rocks are squeezed between other rocks to cause a phenomenon called schistocity.  The layers you see were not originally part of the rock, they were formed when the rock was put under pressure.
  • 06 - This is how much of the merchandise in the world is transported over the oceans.
  • 07 - A good year for the cherry tree in my back yard.
  • 08 - This plant is well adapted for life on the dunes on the west coast of France.
