Surreal Photos of A Frozen Venice

Art director Robert Jahns has created a series of surrealistic photos of Venice by combining photos of Italy by Luis Manuel Osorio Fernando with photos of frozen lakes in Russia by Daniel Kordan. Robert Jahns wanted to show how the Venice Canal would look like if it was frozen by the winter.

What Venice would look like if the canals froze over. Epic ice skating races down the Grand Canal.

After last night’s Game of Thrones wedding, why not read about another?To help illustrate the landscape of "The Owl’s Hare," I’m going to start tumbling each chapter with an appropriate picture. Above is what I imagine Princess Alyla’s bedchambers looks like minutes before her fateful, and disastrous, wedding. Click here to see what happens.

Here are more photos from the dinosaur dig showing us excavating fossils near Hulett, Wyoming. If you’d like to read Part 2 of the article about the process of digging for dinosaurs, then click here.

Why do people love dinosaurs? Was it their size? Their teeth? Their sudden extinction? Or was it that, once upon a time, monsters roamed the Earth.

Through a series of fortunate events, I found myself about to fulfill my lifelong dream of digging for dinosaurs. At the time, I worked for Pixar Animation Studios and was a member of their Paleontology Club (all wanna-be Alan Grants). Every year, a small group of Pixarians participated in an ongoing dig at the Waugh Quarry in Wyoming. When invited, I eagerly jumped at the opportunity and was soon driving through pine-covered mountains toward Hill City, South Dakota.
