A whimsical house from 19th century Norway that my inspiration set in the burning clouds of a fiery sunset. You can try entering that house and see what it is to live in the clouds.

This beautiful female leopard was so camouflaged that we could have easily missed seeing her.  The starkness of the tree provided great contrast against the colorless sky.

A water pipe in Duluth is "bled" every year to ensure it doesn't freeze. As the water freezes, it builds this amazing ice geiser, and looks like this if you stuff LED lights down it.

"A water pipe in Duluth is 'bled' every year to ensure it doesn't freeze," Carlsen explains. "As the water freezes, it builds this amazing ice geyser." Carlsen purchased several dozen LED lights, secured them to a rope with duct tape and hung them down the center of the geyser to achieve the lighting in this image. He then captured the shot with a tripod-mounted Nikon D70.
