Behold!


If ever a picture cried out for the word "Behold!", this may be it. A beautiful photograph of sun striking the Atlantic at Madiera Island, Portugal, one might easily believe either the hand of God or a UFO is involved in its creation. Those scientists who aren't baffled, stunned, or amazed will, like most everyone else, tend towards a more rational explanation. However, tuning all of this out, we can simply enjoy the beauty and wish that we had been there to see it for ourselves before the clouds closed in.


These stunning photos can be found at the Madiera Blog, along with many other evocative pictures. Here's another favorite of mine, capturing the roiling intensity of a storm at night as it threatens Garajau.

Coincidentally, I just posted about Madeira Island. Apparently,the mice there are a great example of speciation. Human settlers brought over house mice during their initial colonization 500 years ago. Since then, 6 new species of mice have arisen there. These mice can no longer interbreed making them truly new species. Of course speciation is something the IDiots say has never been observed.

This is the most surprising and beautiful picture I've ever seen. The light coming out of the clouds is so intense!
