Happy Halloween from NatGeo – Wallpaper

Mothra Attacks! – Wallpaper


animals28-1280

Who doesn’t want more Mothra?  I love macro shots and this is a great one of a moth in flight.  I love the detail that can be seen in the head and eyes.  Originally posted on the National Geographic website, and I think the photographer has a site here.


Iceberg vs Boat – Wallpaper


220332_1600x1200

Epic Iceberg.

I told you I was going to continue posting wallpapers.  This came out of National Geographic’s photo contest.  The stark contrast between the overpowering iceberg and the small boat reminds me of how small I really am in the universe.  Oddly enough, that makes me happy, because I know the  creator of that massive universe knows and loves me, and has his eye on me.


The Great Pterosaur Makeover – NatGeo


Awesomsauce!  I so wish I could have seen these beasts in action!


What stories flow…?


 

I saw this photo of the day on NatGeo and it blew my mind.  I couldn’t ever stand it as a desktop background, but the sight of it immediately flooded my mind with creative story ideas.  The little splashes of orange and purple and red just leap out from the dull background.  Who is that old man?  Can he really ride a motorcycle?  What is in the bottle he is offering you?  Thoughts of maniacal prophets that speak change into your life and then disappear into the night now haunt  my thoughts.


Fire and Water – Wallpaper


 
“The earth trembled and quaked,
the foundations of the heavens shook;
they trembled because he was angry.

Smoke rose from his nostrils;
consuming fire came from his mouth,
burning coals blazed out of it.
He parted the heavens and came down;
dark clouds were under his feet.
He mounted the cherubim and flew;
he soared on the wings of the wind.
He made darkness his canopy around him—
the dark rain clouds of the sky.

Out of the brightness of his presence
bolts of lightning blazed forth.
The Lord thundered from heaven;
the voice of the Most High resounded.
He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy,
with great bolts of lightning he routed them.
The valleys of the sea were exposed
and the foundations of the earth laid bare
at the rebuke of the Lord,
at the blast of breath from his nostrils.”

“He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
he drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.”

-From the Second Book of the Prophet Samuel
