African Animals Getting Drunk From Ripe Marula Fruit

Posted in 2014, animals with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2014 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

A scene from “Animals are Beautiful People” that shows African animals getting drunk after eating fermenting marula fruit, the fruit used to make the alcoholic drink, Amarula. The film was made in 1974 and starred an all-animal cast of wild African animals. Shot in and around South Africa, the movie went straight to cinema and has thrilled audiences ever since.

One of the most beloved scenes from the nature documentary is the one shown in this clip. Baboons, elephants and even ostriches eat the ripe, fermenting marula fruit and start stumbling around in a drunken parody of humans who have been drinking.

“Animals are Beautiful People” draw many similarities between animals and humans, personifying the wild creatures in an attempt to inspire humans to view their animal brethren with more humanity.

The sheer amount of work that was put into each and every set-up and their impeccable quality; keeping in mind that the camera rig was composed of two, in order to mimic the stereoscopic effect of the experience of human eyesight (“3D”), with immaculate camera moves, using everything from Skycam, where the rig is mounted on wires, flying above and through the treetops; to “hothead” cranes, where the ability to manipulate the rig in an up-and-down, side-to-side and every-which-way of rotation, going straight from the tree canopy to the forest floor, to a shot produced by an incomprehensibly small crane, which takes us from underwater, in the teeniest, pristinely-clear, little sylvan streamlet, to follow the footsteps of a brightly polka-dotted salamander, which looks, for all the world like a living piece of jewelry. 

There is also the adept use of every kind of lens and focal length, from the intense depth-of-field, compressing herds of animals within their majestic landscpes, offered by the longest of long lenses, down to the widest possible macroscopic angles, achieved from fiberoptic lenses, giving us the sense of intimacy that would come from being the same size as the smallest of amphibians and insects and of living inside a fox den with a vixen, nursing her skulk of the most adorable kits…

Photographer Olivier Grunewald and RĂ©gis Stephen, president of the Society of Volcanology Geneva interested in Kawah Ijen volcano since 2008. And because this Indonesian mountain is the most acidic lake in the world and a large amount of pure sulfur.

The vapors are emitted at a temperature of about 200 ° C.This sulfur mine produces washing a blue spectral, an extraordinary sight when viewed at night . If ignited, sulfuric high temperature gas flares produce an electric blue that can reach up to five meters high.Olivier Grunewald and his team braved the dangers and the environment very toxic to capture these incandescent lava.

On the occasion of documentary Kawah Ijen, the mystery of blue flames , they discovered that minors are harvested at night “coagulated blood of the volcano.” Risking their lives, they extract pieces of sulfur for sale 680 rupees a kilo (about 0.04 euros).

Arctic Temperatures Reach Highest Levels In 44,000 Years, Study Finds

Posted in 2013 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2013 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

Plenty of studies have shown that the Arctic is warming and that the ice caps are melting, but how does it compare to the past, and how serious is it?

New research shows that average summer temperatures in the Canadian Arctic over the last century are the highest in the last 44,000 years, and perhaps the highest in 120,000 years.

“The key piece here is just how unprecedented the warming of Arctic Canada is,” Gifford Miller, a researcher at the University of Colorado, Boulder, said in a joint statement from the school and the publisher of the journal Geophysical Researcher Letters, in which the study by Miller and his colleagues was published online this week. “This study really says the warming we are seeing is outside any kind of known natural variability, and it has to be due to increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.”

The study is the first to show that current Arctic warmth exceeds peak heat there in the early Holocene, the name for the current geological period, which began about 11,700 years ago. During this “peak” Arctic warmth, solar radiation was about 9 percent greater than today, according to the study.

Leaving Utah, I made the quick trip back across the country to the east and the North Carolina Mountains just in time for fall. I made a few nice images with the Nikon D700 that will be edited before too long. In the meantime, here are a few images made using the iPhone 4S.
