natgeo The #ChachapoyaMummies are related to Inca mummies ... ... The people lived in an area of what is now northern Peru--an area that the Inca wanted for their own. The Chachapoyan lost a war with the #Inca and became part of the empire. The mummies are about 500 years but a recent study says that two of them might be about a 1000 years old. "Chachapoya" is derived from "sacha puya", which is an Incan word meaning "cloud people." Sometimes, therefore, these mummies are reffered to as "Mummies of the Cloud" because they lived in a very damp region. They are well preserved because they were buried in a very dry cave. These mummies were shot at the museo de #Leymebamba in Chachapoys, Peru. @thephotosociety @robertclarkphoto 7h

natgeo Photo by @Amivitale for a @natgeo story on the Oil Boom in the Bakken.
Twin brothers Asher and Jason Tolbert play in hay intside their neighbors barn in Bainville, Montana. The Tolberts moved here in 2011 as part of a massive migration of workers chasing their fortunes in the Bakken. Like many families of the boom, they chose rural Montana to avoid the bustle at the center of the oil rush 30 miles away in Williston, North Dakota.

natgeo @paulnicklen on assignment for @natgeo with @cristinamittermeier. Strict rules at the Crystal River Springs are established to control interactions between people and manatees. This swimmer is top shelf in letting the manatee pet him. A civil-libertarian group is petitioning to have manatees down-listed from their endangered status so they can drive their boats faster. This is especially dangerous during the cold winter months when the manatees seek refuge in the springs to avoid hypothermia. Since 2010 over 1700 manatees have died due to cold shock. Should we allow boat traffic to achieve high speeds in these shallow waters where the manatees come to rest and seek shelter. A large percentage of these slow moving sirenians bear the scars of prop strikes already. #picoftheday #crystalriver @photosociety #wildlife @sea_legacy #sealegacy 12h

Nearly 12,000 years ago Neolithic man emerged from the ice age and looked to these heavens for inspiration. What did they see or feel here that compelled them to construct the first monumental architecture on Earth. This first temple is now known as Göbekli Tepe. Standing under the night sky in the shadow of these great monolithic pillars was one of the greatest experiences that I've had in my life and is still to this day one of the most humbling.

natgeo Photo by @Amivitale for a @natgeo story on the Oil Boom in the Bakken.
Pat Wilson calls his ranch land an "Industrial Park" because of the oil wells dotting the landscape. The fast, relentless pace of the Bakken oil boom has spread from North Dakota to the town of Bainville, Montana. That growth will likely continue. The United States Geological Survey doubled its 2008 estimate of oil resources in the Bakken and the Three Forks formation, which lies below the Bakken.

Corn based ethanol? corn harvested by vehicles which is Fertilized by inorganic nitrogen compounds that are derived from naural gas, and produce green house gasses in the exothermic process. Please educate me on the geology and chemistry. Thanks bud. 2h

A headless human, scorpions, vultures and other predators adorn this 11,000 year old pillar
at Göbekli Tepe, near Şanlıurfa,Turkey.
Created by hunter gatherers there are believed to be more than 200 of these pillars, thought to make up the world's first temple.
Professor Klaus Schmidt thought neolithic man looked first to the heavens for inspiration before all other things. He believed the pillars represented humans and spent the last 20 years stripping away the myths of the previous 10,000. He passed away this week.

I’ll be posting more images from my work at Göbekli Tepe every day this week to commemorate the work of Professor Schmidt on my account @vincentjmusi
