The stomach-turning SkyBridge, near Sochi in south-western Russia, stretches for almost one kilometer and can take 30,000 people at a time.
And extreme sports fans who have not had enough highs for one day can speed along a zip wire more than 500ft above the valley floor.
Known as the Trollwire – riders are strapped to a zip wire horizontally side by side – it reaches speeds of 70mph as it swoops through the air.

These animals seem to have the PURR-fect life living just like their human owners. The cute critters – dogs, cats and even hamsters – have seemingly decided to try out things usually only reserved for humans.

Using her adorable style of photographer Svetlana Valyiskaya poses up common pets in everyday situations – from a hamster going to the gym to a cat ordering a meal. Her well-behaved subjects can be seen in this colorful collection of pictures she has been putting together for past six years in her native Russia.

In her spare time from her job as a commercial photographer Svetlana loves nothing more than creating these hilarious environments. Making all the costumes and designing the scenes herself, the photographers work has become a sensation in her native Russia. (Caters News)

The 50th Paris Air Show started on June 17, 2013 at the Le Bourget airport near Paris with major orders placed for the Airbus A380 super-jumbo jet and for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner.

However thunder, lightning and rain put a damper somewhat on the air acrobatics.

So did the U.S. budget “sequester,” which prevented U.S. fighter aircraft from appearing at the show for the first time in 20 years.

The 50th Paris Air Show runs from June 17 to June 23, 2013.

Here are some photos during the opening of 50th Paris Air Show …

Clouds Which Looks Like UFOs By Denis Budkov

Lenticular clouds hover of the mountains of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia.

I love photography and I had posted lots of photos by great photographers who took beautiful photos of animals, trees, mountains, lakes and others.

And today, I want to share something different – cool photos of clouds that looks like UFOs or Unidentified Flying Object by Russian photographer Denis Budkov.

These photos were snapped over Klyuchevskaya Sopka, the highest mountain of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia.

They look so cool, especially the above photo.

The Mail Online wrote that the lens-shaped formations are scientifically known as ‘altocumulus lenticularis’ and are the result of moist air that has condensed at a high altitude.

They are formed when the air temperature drops and moisture droplets are pushed up a steep slope by high winds.

This unique atmospheric condition creates the interesting lens-shaped form that defines a lenticular cloud. 

Mountains act as natural barriers forcing clouds to condense quickly as they are pushed to cooler altitudes.

The above photo of starfish by Alexander Semenov is so nice and it looks like some sea anemones.

I have never seen such photos before and I think that they are so beautiful.

Biologist Alexander Semenov uses  a macro lens to capture these stunning close-ups of vibrant starfish.

Mr. Semenov is chief of diving team at the White Sea Biological Station (WSBS), in Russia.  

He graduated from Lomonosov’s Moscow State University in the department of Zoology in 2007.

Now Mr. Semenov organises all WSBS underwater projects.

He enjoys underwater photography and I think that he is really good at it.

I hope that I could see the real thing and take the beautiful pictures by myself.

By the way, here are some more stunning starfish photos by Alexander Semenov …

The Mystery of The Deforested Woods (Chapter 4: Trip To Russia)

Od Woods

They all thought hard. “I know!” shouted Pete. “I think I know the person who cut down the trees in the woods. Henry! It should be him. It can’t be Ivan; because if Ivan cut down the trees, there won’t be any noise so we won’t be hearing the clattering sound. But first, we need to find out more information about Henry and Ivan. All lumberjacks in this country must be members of the Lumberjack Club and we can check their resumes at the club office,” continued Pete.

Safora and Mic volunteered to go to the Lumberjack Club to check if Henry and Ivan are members of the club. An hour later, they returned to Mic’s house with good news.

“Okay,” started Safora. “We have good news. They are both members of the Lumberjack Club and here is what we found out about them.” She took out her note-book and read, ” Henry is now 57 years old. He was born in Dillenburg, Netherlands. And Ivan is now 53 years old. He was born in the lands of Kolomenskoye, Russia.”

“And I have another good news,” said Mic excitedly. “Tomorrow my father is going to Russia and he is taking Reen and I along for a holiday. We’ll try to see if we can find more information about Ivan as our father will be meeting his old friend, a lumberjack named Akbar over there. Akbar was born in India but he now lives in Russia. Our father said that some of Akbar’s fingers had turned crooked or pointy, I can’t remember which; so he wants to visit him and see if he can help Akbar.”

“Where was Akbar born, Mic?” asked Pete.

“Agra, near the Taj Mahal. And I’ll try to ask him questions to find out if he came to Woodsland recently,” answered Mic.

The next day, Mic and Reen were very excited; they could hardly wait for the time to go to the airport. Their flight to Russia would be departing from the Woodsland International Airport or WIAIR at 12 o’clock noon and they were going to the airport two hours earlier. Mic and Reen said goodbye to Pete and Safora, and they promised to bring back something special from Russia for their friends.

“When will you be back from Russia?” asked Safora.

“We’ll be there for six days and we will be arriving back here at 7 o’clock in the morning on Monday,” answered Mic. “I have never been to Russia before and I hope that it is going to be fun over there,” continued Mic. Safora and Pete said goodbye to Mic, Reen and their parents as they departed for the airport.

Six days later at 7 o’clock in the morning, an AeroBratsk aeroplane landed on Woodsland International Airport’s runway from Russia.  Fifteen minutes later, out came some Russians from the aeroplane. Then a boy with his little brother walked out from the aeroplane together with their parents, followed by an Indian manIt was Mic and Reen and their parents. They came back to Woodsland together with their friend Akbar.

Two hours later, Pete, Safora, Mic and Reen got together at Mic’s house. They were so happy to see each other again. Mic and Reen told Pete and Safora about their experiences in Russia and gave them some beautiful Russian Nesting Dolls, snow globes and some Russian postage stamps. Akbar saw the children talking excitedly to each other in the garden, so he walked towards them. Reen introduced Akbar to Pete and Safora and as Akbar decided to join them, they could not discuss about the mystery. Looking at each other, they wondered, who could be the lumberjack who cut down the trees in the woods ….

I love to watch animals playing and being friends with other animals.

I think people must learn from animals and stop fighting with each other 😉

Even animals can make friends with other animals, so it is very sad to see humans hurting and killing each other everyday.

I know one cat who loves to ‘talk’ with crows.

It’s name is Primiligh and it’ll make birdlike meows when it meows to the birds (that’s what my sister always says).

So here are cute pictures of animals being friends with other animals.
