Bonsai conifer by Adam Gibbs
Born in Watford, England in 1964, Adam Gibbs immigrated to Canada in 1979. First, he was a snap shooter with a nice camera, and later he took a more serious approach and attended a two-year photography program at Langara Community College in Vancouver. He has lots of opportunities to travel and pursue his love of nature photography. Adam enjoys photography, the act of hiking to a location and simply setting up a camera and taking a few images is what he enjoys about it. To watch beautiful light on a snowbound peak or camp in an alpine meadow surrounded by wildflowers are the things that draw him to photography, not the other way around.

Collector of stars and night quotes

Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
I’ve come across this picture on the Russian site with interesting name, which can be translated as “Stars collector”. Surfing the site I have also collected some beautiful pictures from it and added my own. Collector of stars – author’s project, demonstrating the magic of life. The blog is filled with inspirational quotes, beautiful images, video, music. The author of the site is Alex Kuzmin aka “Lexian”. Lots of images in Alex’s site are about night and stars. Who could say better than Vincent Van Gogh himself – I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.

Although the cause is yet to be determined, this is not the first time a river has turned red in China.
