The Mystical World Of Mushrooms Captured In Photos

Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is  surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.

Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

The Never Ending Road.

In Corona, California there once was a road known by most of the older locals as the never ending road. Specifically, the road’s true name was Lester Road.

However, 70 years ago, Lester Road was an unlit road that people claimed became a never ending road when driven at night. The people who made such a drive were never seen or heard from again.The legend became so well-known that people refused to even drive Lester Road during the day.

Perpetuation of the legend convinced local law enforcement to investigate around the 1960’s. Lester Road took a sharp left turn at its end, and there were no guard rails. Beyond the curve lay a canyon, and on the other side of the canyon was another road that lined up so well with Lester Road that when viewed from the correct angle, especially at night, the canyon vanished from sight, and the road seemed to continue on up and over the hill on the other side of the canyon. Upon investigation of the canyon, dozens of cars were found, fallen to their doom, with the decomposing bodies of the victims still strapped to their seats.

Law enforcement tried to cover up their findings. They closed down Lester road, letting the trees grow where the road once stood and letting the bodies remain in their final resting place.

Otto Dix served twice on the front lines of World War I. His art is a sober reminder, during the centennial celebrations of the war, of the 16 million men and countless non-combatants who died fightings that most pointless war.

Boris Zvorykin - Illustration to “The Tale of the Dead Princess and Seven Knights” by Alexander Pushkin, 1890th

That’s good example of so-called “russian style”, that was created in the end of the 19th century. Well, not created - reconstructed.

Zvorykin was the first one who introduced medieval and traditional Russian painting to the modern art.

✆ for Conquest. She's got to have a few of those tucked away in some closet.

✆ for an ex headcanon

teehee oh does she

Conquest has a string of, eheh, conquests, each more powerful than the last. Kings, queens, great warriors, athletes, lords, ladies—anyone with great talent and great ambition. She has lovers in every kingdom, and when she’s done with them, she feeds them to her husband.
