These awesome photos, in which rolling waves appear to be both perfectly frozen in time and miraculously made solid, are the work of French photographer Pierre Carreau.
Carreau “shoots waves with a variety of high speed cameras using various macro and wide angle lenses, capturing water shapes that appear more sculptural than liquid.”
This awesomely beautiful object is part of the Fukang meteorite. Discovered near the city of Fukang in Xinjiang, China back in 2000, the 2,211 lb meteorite is a pallasite, which is a meteorite consisting of roughly equal proportions of iron and olivine. The olivine crystals are what you see catching the light in this striking photo, which was shared by Redditor kikootwo.
“Pallasites are extremely rare even among meteorites (only about 1% of all meteorites are this type) and Fukang has been hailed as one of the greatest meteorite discoveries of the 21st century.”

Nobody buy Tumblr! OMG!
Better Yahoo than Facebook, but bleah. BLEAH, I say!
Depending on the purity of your heart, or perhaps simply whether or not you know the residents, this incredibly awesome dragon gate either bars the entrance or grants access to the Harlech House, located in Goatstown, Dublin, Ireland.
It’s Wonderful Winged Creatures Day on Geyser of Awesome!
“Lose Yourself To Dance” by Daft Punk
OK. Whoever created this understands some of the motivation behind Daft Punk’s new record, which is why it’s such a perfect visual-audio mashup. A part of me feels like Daft Punk would approve of this. It’s so simple, yet on point.
