The Blue Marble has never looked so pretty as it does in these images. Shared on Imgur, the images show relief maps of continents around the world, wonderfully illuminated by pockets of light.

South Africa is pictured too, but a local has concerns about the validity of the image.

Mouth-Watering Food Photos

Dr. Nathan Myhrvold may be lacking vowels in his last name but is certainly not short in cooking skills. The good doctor’s book Modernist Cuisine borrows techniques from the science laboratory and applies them to food preparation.

The photos from the 2438-page book have been extracted and presented centre stage in the coffee table stunner, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine. The dishes were photographed against minimal backgrounds, with cutaways and macro shots providing a fascinating view into the realm of cooking. Have a look at some of the mouth-watering images after the jump.

The Prettiest Cattle You Ever Did See

To simple people like me, cattle are just another delicious source of food. To others, cattle are considered sacred and held as symbols of strength and wealth. Shaka, king of the Zulus, would often breed his Nguni cattle to create different patterned skins for the various regiments in his army.

South African photographer Daniel Naudé has been interested in the role cattle play in societies and over the past few years has photographed the most majectic cows and bulls that you ever did see. Naudé focussed his attention on the Ankole, Zebu, and Brahman breeds native to the countries of respective countries of Uganda, India, and Madagascar. Have a look at some of his photos after the jump.

Our Favourite Space Images From 2013

Space is big. Really big. It would take a gargantuan trek of 21.24 billion kilometres for you to reach the outer edges of our solar system, and a further 435 sextillion (that’s 10 to the power of 21!) kilometres to reach the furthest region of the observable universe. There is so much to explore but what we’ve seen so far has been incredibly beautiful.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory keeps an extensive catalogue of cosmic images taken by the various spacecraft up in the heavens. Here’s a small selection of our favourites space images taken in 2013.

“Time is a Dimension” by Fong Qi Wei

Photos are often referred to as life’s moments frozen in time. While Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei loves photography as a medium, he wondered whether it would be possible to combine the permanence of photos and the movement of time as recorded by video cameras.

In Time is a Dimension, Fong setup his tripod in places around Singapore and took series of photos for a period of two and fours hours, mostly of sunrises and sunsets for a varied colour range. He then combined the images into a single, layered image.

The basic structure of a landscape is present in every piece. But each panel or concentric layer shows a different slice of time, which is related to the adjacent panel/layer. The transition from daytime to night is gradual and noticeable in every piece, but would not be something you expect to see in a still image.

The Black Hole Project

Simply put, black holes suck. Thankfully, Fabian Oefner’s Black Hole project is attractive and far from sucky.

Inspired by the drippy paint style of Jackson Pollock, the Swiss photographer and artist decided to investigate the effect of centrifugal force on paint. He dripped coloured shades of acrylic paint onto a metal rod that was connected to a drill. When the drill was switched on, the paint whirled away from the rod, and Oefner’s camera flashed at 1/40000 of a second, capturing the images of the paint in motion. Have a look at some of his rather colour Black Hole images after the jump.
