1、Manta Ray, Mexico, 2007 / 墨西哥 蝠魟, 2007年


manta-ray-leap-skerry-1070447-xl.jpg
A leaping manta ray (Manta birostris) seems to fly above the Gulf of California off the coast of Mexico. Mantas, easily recognizable by their pectoral "wings," stay near the ocean's surface, unlike other rays. They leap—up to seven feet (two meters) high—then return to the surface with a resounding slap. / 跃起的蝠魟(学名:Manta birostris)看上去就像是在墨西哥海岸的加利福尼亚海湾上飞翔。蝠魟,由于其“飞翼”状胸鳍而较容易被人们识别,不像其他同类那样,它们生活在靠近浅海的区域。它们跃起至2米高,然后带着响亮的声音回到海中。

2、Sundog Light Phenomenon, Manitoba, Canada, 2005 / 加拿大 Manitoba的“假日”天象, 2005年

polar-phenomena-rosing-749109-xl.jpg A solar phenomenon known as a sundog arcs over the tundra in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. Sundogs are fairly common occurrences in the Arctic and Antarctic. They form when the sun is near the horizon and ice crystals high in the sky line up in a way that bends the solar rays like a prism. / 太阳的“假日”天文现象半悬于加拿大Manitoba丘吉尔苔原的天际。这种天象常见于地球的南极和北极地区。当太阳处于接近地平线的高度且云层中冰晶较多时,就会像多棱镜一样折射太阳光而产生“假日”。

mist-forest-laman-63300-xl.jpg A twilight mist floats through the rain forest canopy in Borneo’s Gunung Palung National Park.

ariaal-warriors-stenzel-656544-xl.jpg Ariaal warriors rest on an outcrop amid the deserts of northern Kenya's Marsabit District. The 10,000 or so Ariaal who inhabit Marsabit have managed to maintain their nomadic way of life in spite of shrinking communal pastures, increasing ethnic tensions, and government pressure to trade their cattle culture for a more mainstream existence. / 阿里尔族(Ariaal)武士们在肯尼亚北部马萨比特(Marsabit)地区荒野的岩石上休息。为数一万人甚至更多的阿里尔族人居住在马萨比特地区。不管公共牧场已经缩小,越来越多的部族冲突,以及促使他们的牧牛文化转化为一种比较主流生活的gov-ern-ment压力,他们继续保持着其游牧生活方式。

spacesuit-thiessen-1096805-xl.jpg A spacesuit is put through its paces at the Johnson Space Center's Lunar Yard in Houston, Texas. The 2-acre (0.8-hectare) mock moon surface, made of sand and crushed granite, allows engineers to test systems and concepts as they prepare for NASA's return to the moon. / 宇航服正在位于美国得克萨斯州休斯顿约翰逊航天中心的“月球”场地经受考验。这块用砂石和花岗岩碎块制作的0.8公顷模拟月球表面,让工程师们可以为了美国太空总署(NASA)重返月球的计划而对各种系统和概念进行测试。

6、Durian Fruit, Borneo, Indonesia, 1997 / 印度尼西亚 婆罗洲 榴莲, 1997

durian-fruit-laman-63460-xl.jpg A wild durian fruit from the rain forests of Borneo is cut open, its vivid red flesh exposed. Wild durian has a spiny green exterior, emits an infamous rotting stench, and is mainly eaten by birds. / 一个来自婆罗洲雨林的野生榴莲被切开,露出其鲜艳的红色果肉。野生榴莲有着坚硬多刺的绿色外壳,散发出“臭名昭著”的气味并大多数为鸟类所食。

7、Opium Smoke, Doi Sam Mun, Thailand, 1985 / 泰国 Doi Sam Mun村 鸦**片烟, 1985年

opium-smoke-raymer-423689-xl.jpg A woman smoking opium on Chinese New Year fills her small, sunlit home in Thailand's Doi Sam Mun village with a bluish haze. Thailand was once a significant producer of opium and heroin, but government eradications efforts begun in the 1980s have significantly curtailed poppy cultivation. / 在中国农历新年里,泰国Doi Sam Mun村的一名妇女在她阳光照射的小屋中抽着鸦**片烟,泛起一片蓝色的烟雾。泰国曾经一度是闻名的鸦**片和海**洛**因产地,但在gov-ern-ment自1980年代开始的禁灭努力下,罂**粟种植已被显著地受到削弱。

8、Thracian Tomb, Tarnovo, Bulgaria, 2006 / 保加利亚 Tarnovo 古代色雷斯人之墓, 2006年

thracian-tomb-garrett-1129242-xl.jpg At the ancient cult complex of Mishkova Niva, a monumental wall of white marble, mined locally in the mountains of southeastern Bulgaria, circles the ruins of a Thracian tomb from the second or third century B.C.
Possibly as early as the second millennium B.C. a sanctuary took shape here, perhaps for the worship of a heroic tribal king. The site continued as a sacred place for centuries. It may have lost that status about the sixth century A.D., when Slavic invasions began to obliterate Thracian culture.  / 在Mishkova Niva的古代祭祀设施旁,一堵由白色大理石组成的纪念墙,被建筑在保加利亚东南部山区,自公元前3世纪或公元前2世纪它便环绕在一座色雷斯人古墓的废墟周围。
可能早在公元前2千年一个教堂的雏形便建成于此,也可能是为了膜拜一位英勇的部落首领。数世纪以来这里一直作为一个神圣的地方。它可能在公元6世纪斯拉夫人入侵并开始毁灭色雷斯文化的时候,失去了其神圣地位。
