#17 ~ Color / Colour

Click HERE for more colors...
Finally we speak about color in photo *smile* lately I'm crazy with colors on jewelry. Thanks to my Bead Soup Blog Party's partner, Lorelle, who sent me dark orange china crystal. Since that moment, I love to explore more colors for my design. Usually I use with brown - blue - pastel. Now I challenge my self to create something with these colors :
Most of them are rustic colors.

7th Bead Soup Blog Party - The 3rd Reveal

...a storytelling... Pinterest via Jillian O'Malley...
One evening at sunset on the beach of Cretaceous-Paleogene period . From a distance, in the sky, appeared a bright spot. A bright spot initially small, is slowly starting to swell. It like star falling from the sky. It glows so bright, create their own light beat the sunset light. It glows because it hits the upper atmosphere at 20,000 mph. The friction of the water heats the rock and iron until it is red hot to orange. So beautiful...
...a pair of Chicxulub...
But you never know, what will happen when the beautiful falling star hit the ground. Once it hits the ground it's Chicxulub Asteroid. Asteroid hitting the ocean raise plumes of water that Noah calls "fountains of the deep". The asteroid will push the water aside and hit the ocean floor to create a crater. The water pushed aside will form a tidal wave. Waves of the ocean wash water onto the land, depositing sediment from the continental shelf. An event that wiped out an estimated 95% of marine species. And the marine ecosystems will be change. from Science Daily...
Beautiful coral reefs suddenly shattered. Habitat for fish and other sea creatures damaged. It fundamentally changed the basic ecology of the oceans. And the effects of the impact would have inhibited photosynthesis by generating a dust cloud that blocked sunlight for a year or less, and by injecting sulfuric acid aerosols into the stratosphere, roomates would have reduced sunlight reaching the Earth's surface by 10-20%. Underwater become dark than ever. It would account for the extinction of sea-plants and phytoplankton. Small creatures whose food chains were based on detritus would have a reasonable chance of survival.

250 million years next...
The Earth still survive. The earth experienced its biggest mass extinction about 250 million years ago, an event that wiped out an estimated 95% of marine species and 70% of land species. Yet the devastation by the caused by the extinction also provided evolutionary opportunities. In the wake of the extinction, many groups underwent remarkable adaptive radiations.
...Beach Holiday Fantasy by Rehana...
Microorganisms that survived the disaster, evolved with the help of radiation from the asteroid, forming a series of new string of DNA and RNA. The ocean is alive once again. Spring with many marine life and build their own planet...Ocean Planet...
...ocean planet necklace...
  • The oceans contain a 99 percent of the living space on the planet.
  • Hydrothermal vents, fractures in the sea floor that spew sulfur compounds, support the only complex ecosystem known to run on chemicals, rather than energy from the sun. Gigantic tubeworms and mussels thrive in densities of up to 65 pounds per square foot around vents.
  • Green turtles can migrate more than 1,400 miles to lay their eggs.
  • A group of herring is called a seige. A group of jelly fish is called a smack.
  • Many fish can change sex during the course of their lives. Others, especially rare deep-sea fish, have both male and female sex organs.
  • Bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus, are among the largest and fastest marine fish. An adult may weigh 1,500 pounds and swim up to 55 miles per hour. Prized as sushi in Japan, bluefins are also among the most valuable fish: bluefins individual can bring as much as $ 20,000 at U.S. docks.
  • Member since Reviews the architecture and chemistry of Reviews coral are very close to human bone, coral has been of used to the replace bone Grafts in helping human bones to heal quickly intervening and cleanly.
  • Horseshoe crabs have Existed in Essentially the same form for the past 135 million years. Their blood provides a valuable test for the toxins that cause septic shock, roomates previously led to half of all hospital-acquired infections and one-fifth of all hospital deaths.
  • Alginates, derived from the cell walls of brown algae, are used in beer, frozen desserts, pickles, adhesives, boiler compounds, ceramics, explosives, paper and toys.
  • The remains of diatoms, algae with hard shells, are used in making pet litter, cosmetics, pool filters and tooth polish.
  • Began life in the seas 3.1 billion to 3.4 billion years ago. Land dwellers Appeared 400 million years ago_a relatively recent point in the geologic time line. 
Ocean is part of Earth...and when Earth gets sick, she can heal herself.
Happy Earth Day!!!
...Earth had enough time to repair itself in this universe. Earth is not going anywhere. And all the lakes will come back clear. Rivers, seas, mountains, all will be green again. All peaceful again. And there might be no humans there at that time, but the Earth will improve. Because actually we, humans, do not have much time...taken from The 11th Hour by Leonardo diCaprio...
