• Sometimes I try to take photographs of things I see in my dreams, but whenever I do, inevitably my camera won't work. This usually lets me know that I'm dreaming and then I can go into a full lucid dream state. Does this happen to anyone else?

Escape Map Precedent: WWII-era escape and evasion map of Europe.

Silk maps were developed for WWII servicemen to be used in case of capture or being caught behind enemy lines. These “hanky” maps were durable enough to weather intense field use and provided servicemen with a detailed map featuring cities, roadways, railways, rivers and major bodies of water, overlaid on a color-coded shaded relief map. #wildwestatbdga #cartography #map #designresearch

Oregon Badlands Wilderness

The Oregon Badlands Wilderness was designated in 2009 and now has a total of 29,261 acres. All of this wilderness is located in Oregon and is managed by the BLM.

The Oregon Badlands Wilderness holds a number of remarkable and exciting landforms and geologic features. Most of the area includes the rugged Badlands volcano, which has features of inflated lava. Windblown volcanic ash and eroded lava make up the sandy, light-colored soil that covers the low and flat places in these fields of lava. Dry River, active during each of several ice ages, marks the southeast boundary between two volcanic areas – Badlands volcano and the Horse Ridge volcanoes. Earth movements along the Brothers Fault Zone have faulted and sliced up the old Horse Ridge volcanoes, but not Badlands volcano. The Badlands formed in an unusual way. The flow that supplied lava to the Badlands apparently developed a hole in the roof of its main lava tube. This hole became the source of lava that built a shield volcano that we call the Badlands (technically, a rootless shield volcano). An irregularly-shaped pit crater at the top of the shield marks the site where lava flowed in all directions to create the Badlands. 

A variety of wildlife species inhabit the area including yellow-bellied marmots, bobcat, mule deer, elk, and antelope. The southern portion of the Badlands Wilderness includes crucial winter range for mule deer. Avian species include prairie falcons and golden eagles.

photographer Yume Cyan has been shooting some magical long exposure photographs of fireflies in a forested area around Nagoya City, Japan. By keeping the camera’s shutter open at a low aperture Cyan captures every bioluminescent flash of each insect resulting in dotted light trails that criss-cross the frame.

We never get tired of fireflies.
