For 107 years, the RMS Titanic has rested in her grave.. a cold, dark abyss 12,415 feet (2.5 miles) beneath the freezing North Atlantic. In recent years, dives and expeditions have found that mankind’s carelessness on several dives, such as crash landing submarines, nets, and garbage, as well as simply touching the fragile ghost ship, along with nature’s own processes, and a wide variety of metal-eating bacteria and fauna, have caused her to deteriorate at an alarmingly fast rate. So fast that scientists predict she may have as little as a few decades left before biodeterioration makes her a rust stain on the ocean floor. Many believe she should be preserved somehow, encased or protected in some way. Others, who have seen first hand the remains of the human element of the tragedy.. believe she should be left in peace.. like the graveyard she once was. What do you believe is right? Preservation or respect? #rmstitanic#whitestarline#1912#atlanticocean#robertballard
Does anyone know what this vertebrae might be from? Found while beachcombing near the @southportpier
I tried using the quarter and tape measure for scale, but I still don't think the photos properly convey how big of a fish this thing must have came from.
Чтобы сделать это фото, у меня было 3 секунды. Морская звезда живет ровно столько вне воды. Тяжёленькие они, каждая по 2 кг примерно. Пульсирует у неё пузико и она очень шершавая) я боялась оторвать ей лапку/ножку, пока держала в таком положении и поэтому мы действовали максимально быстро) За этими звездами ныряют с аквалангом местные, когда туристы приезжают на остров. И они дают сфотографироваться за 2$. Парнишка прибежал, оделся, нырнул, достал их и за 30 минут заработал 100 баксов🤣🤣🤣 Я же говорила, зарабатывают, кто как придумал)))
Escape to the West Coast with @siestacampers.
Last week, one of my lifelong dreams came true. I finally got the chance to live out my fantasy of driving along the coast in a classic VW Combi and it was better than anything I could have ever dreamt of.
Our travel companion was called Salvador, and as soon as we hit the road in this little blue dream of a vehicle, we knew we had already fallen head over heels for it.
We spent the next day living the classic car road trip dream: driving at 80 km/h along country roads, manually rolling the windows down to feel the fresh sea breeze on our faces, running on wooden boards chasing sunset until it disappeared over the ocean’s horizon. We drove off the beaten track as the light melted away, finally finishing the day drinking wine and listening to the waves crashing beneath the full moon. We fell asleep watching “Looking for Sugar Man” and woke to the sun rising behind rocks over the sea, eating our breakfast on the beach, our toes digging holes in the sand. 2020 could not have started in any better way. #gifted
