deejayforte ⚛ Little Red Riding Explorer || The gene that allows us to see red lies with the X chromosome. Because women have two X chromosomes, this allows them more color variation and vividness in the red-orange spectrum.

Where women can see crimson, maroon, cardinal, ruby, and scarlet— men might only be able to see light red and dark red.

  •   deejayforte @pketron Hell yeah! Women get evolutionary super powers and shit! 🏻 2d
  •   deejayforte @so.shauna Haha! I'm glad you appreciated this :). Just crack a knowledge egg on him tomorrow, you got this. ⚛ 2d
  •   tischfis @deejayforte It's true women have two x chromosomes but effectively they only have one copy because of x-inactivation. Studies show the difference in color vision is probably linked to neuron development differences caused by different hormone cascades during development. Just wanted to share! 2d
  •   deejayforte @tischfis Great thing about science is that it's always evolving the more we research! 🏻 Thanks for going further in depth. 2d

My little reminder to encourage you to keep going, because an adventure is out there.

deejayforte ↟ About my photography: I personally love to feature people in my landscapes as it gives the viewer a sense of scale, depth and a point of interest to look at. Everyone's different and that's what makes each photographer so unique.

deejayforte Hey, I'm alive. Sorry I haven't posted in almost ~two weeks. I broke my camera somehow and I'm waiting for it to be repaired (no external damage/nothing too serious, I think). But in other news, I'm heading to Acadia National Park this week and I'm going to science the shit out of it.

deejayforte || It's Throwback Thursday and it's rainy in NYC today? Perfect time to post Iceland.

The mountain Esja (3000 ft) is situated in the south-west of Iceland, about 6 miles to the north of Iceland's capital city #Reykjavík. Esja is not a single mountain, but a volcanic mountain range, made from basalt and tuff-stone.

deejayforte ⚛ Every celestial object in our Solar System that has an atmosphere has clouds—including our moon, Luna. But due to different temperature and chemical compositions, they are often composed of other substances such as methane, ammonia, and sulfuric acid— as well as water.

deejayforte ️ It was hard to understand the lure of these shots until I bought a camera and realized how precise one had to be to capture this correctly— and even then it still takes work.

  •   deejayforte @ssserotonin I really love when people walk by me and they hear 252715 pictures being taken at once and give me the "wtf is he doing?" Haha! It's certainly challenging but the outcome is rewarding :) 4w
  •   adritwn I can never do shots like this 4w
  •   deejayforte @adritwn I think it's possible to do on the phone, but you'll need a manual camera app. With that said, I think you need a camera if you want it sharp with less chances of the car being blurry? I've never tried a pan shot on the phone 4w
  •   adritwn @deejayforte hmm I'll definitely try that out the next time I'm out and about the city. I guess camera+ would be a good choice for a manual cam app yeah? 4w

deejayforte On November 24, 1973 a United States Navy Douglas Super DC-3 airplane was forced to land on Sólheimasandur’s black sand beach in the south of Iceland after experiencing severe icing. Luckily all crew members survived and the airplane’s fuselage was abandoned.
