i wanted to make this caption something about the tapapakanga park, so i thought it would be awesome to find some information about how the māori people used this land. i was disgusted and frankly quite mad that after over an hour of searching the internet i couldn’t find a single thing about the relationship they had with this land. all i could find was information about some European family taking this land in 1899 and raising 24 children on a farm. then how the family sold the land to the Auckland council in 1995. it’s sad that the history of such a rich culture is being buried.

“The random things you find down dirt roads in the middle of nowhere”. @jackrsutton has the ability to capture Tasmania in such a magical way.
We are preparing for a new eruption that could possibly happen at any moment now... or not. These pictures are from the most recent eruption in Iceland, in 2014-2015. On average, we get eruptions every 3-4 years, so it is definitely time for a new one.
On Sunday morning, inflation was detected close to the town Grindavík and the Blue Lagoon on the Reykjanes peninsula. Inflation means that something is pushing up the surface from below and deforming it.
That is most likely magma that is being injected towards the surface from a deeper reservoir.
This inflation was mainly detected by using satellites. Comparing images from the same satellite on the same orbit is needed for that as it flies over Iceland with 6 days in between. So the before and after deformation photos are only achieved with 6 days of interval.
During a period of six days, the area had lifted 2 cm! As of now, it has been 3 cm!!! 😳
That is aaaaalot for this short time and very unusual. There are, of course, more methods to use to detect this.
So is this magma that is causing this? We don't know that for sure yet, as this could also be related to boiling geothermal water. If this is magma, which it most likely is, there are different scenarios to have in mind here: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️The uplift could die down, and nothing happens. ▪️The uplift could continue, and nothing happens.
▪️The uplift will die down but flare up again sometime in the future, which could go on with intervals for some time and then possibly lead to an eruption. This could take months or years.
▪️The uplift will lead to an eruption nearby.
▪️The potential eruption could be the beginning of a long period of eruptions that could last for years with pauses in between. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, if this leads to an eruption, it will be an effusive eruption on a fissure. That is pretty much the same type of eruption, as we see here in the images from the eruption in 2014-2015. The fissures are weaknesses caused by the rifting. The magma takes advantage of these weaknesses, which makes it easier for it to reach the surface.
Stay tuned for more text in the next post as instagram doesn’t allow too much text at once 😅

La Pointe de Pern dans tous ses états... C'est le lieu d'affrontements quotidiens entre la mer et la terre. Les vagues qui déferlent sont énormes et les couleurs sont très photogéniques.
En 2020 je rejoins l'équipe de @photographesdumonde
et serai heureux d'accompagner un groupe de photographes dès mai ou Octobre à Ouessant avec au programme un tour des phares de l'île et une découverte photographique de ces paysages hors du commun.
Plus d'infos sur leur site ou le mien pour les réservations.
I don't have anything super special to say today, I just hope you go into your daily life knowing how loved & important you are, and trying your best to let other people know the same thing. Hold your loved ones close. Practice patience when a stranger cuts you off. Try to see the beauty in this world, because trust me, there's a whole lot of it. Love ya 😘❤️
🇦🇺👇🏼🇧🇷 Hoje é comemorado o “Australian Day”. Um momento triste que estamos vivendo aqui com os incêndios. Tantos animais, florestas e pessoas afetadas. Muito, muito triste. 😢 Tirei essa foto há 6 meses, na época o “🙏🏼” era um agradecimento por uma natureza tão exuberante. Essa região lindíssima chamada Blue Mountains foi muito afetada pelos incêndios, e atualmente está bem diferente desse verde todo da foto. Hoje o “🙏🏼” simboliza minha oração e meu desejo que todos nós possamos cuidar melhor do ambiente que vivemos. Nós precisamos da natureza e ela, claramente, clama pelos nossos cuidados!

🇦🇺 Today is officially the “Australian Day”. A sad moment that we are living here with the bush fires. So many animals, forests and people affected. Very, very sad 😢. I took this photo 6 months ago, at the time the “🙏🏼” was a symbol of gratitude for such an exuberant nature. This beautiful region called Blue Mountains was strongly affected by the bush fires, and now looks very different from that photo. Today the “🙏🏼” symbolizes my prayer and my wish that we can all take better care of the environment that we live. We need the nature and the nature clearly calls for our help!
