The Hubble View–
Explanation: Few cosmic vistas excite the imagination like the Orion Nebula. Also known as M42, the nebula’s glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1,500 light-years away. The Orion Nebula offers one of the best opportunities to study how stars are born partly because it is the nearest large star-forming region, but also because the nebula’s energetic stars have blown away obscuring gas and dust clouds that would otherwise block our view – providing an intimate look at a range of ongoing stages of starbirth and evolution. This detailed image of the Orion Nebula is the sharpest ever, constructed using data from the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and the European Southern Observatory’s La Silla 2.2 meter telescope. The mosaic contains a billion pixels at full resolution and reveals about 3,000 stars.

A rose to rise
A rose to fall
A rose to conquer all
Thorns that hurt
Thorns that protect
Thorns to start what cannot be stopped
One rose to say one word
One rose to say many words
Several roses to say nothoing at all
From rise to fall
From hurt to protect
A rose is a rose
That can mean many things
But all depends on you
Your own heart
With its own rose
Its own thorns

The spider weaves a sticky web
To capture bugs to eat.
What keeps the spider’s sticky web
From sticking to her feet?
Spider webs are very tricky
Because not all the strands are sticky.
Unlike the passing hapless fly,
The spider knows which strands are dry.
But if she accidentally stands
Upon one of the sticky strands,
She still would not get stuck, you see–
Her oily body slides off free.
I love these creepy creatures and i love to capture them in photographs.
This is the photograph is captured by Sony Ericson C510 mobile phone. And this is my life’s very first macro photograph. After shooting this photo i moved towards the macro photography very much and now i am a very big lover of macro.
Some times we missed these small things in real but macro photography brings life to these small things and and makes them noticeable to every one, in fact they look more wonderful in macro.
A honeybee flying over the yellow flower to collect the nectar. The honey is the part of bee life cycle,flower to flower just for the honey.This shot is taken by me using Sony cybershot W-350.
A Wasp ready to jump off the flower. See the life in Black and white.
I love macro photography very much,I like to play with different things for creative shots..On the finished surface of this gemstone the reflection of a tree can be seen clearly.
the Story within the Story
Taking the journey, bumps and all
Beautiful photos of hiking and other outdoor adventures.
It's all about disbelieving your thoughts
