Royal Azaleas
Twisted Sifter’s photo-of-the-day by DaeWook Kim.
Original article by Twisted Sifter:
The 1,108-meter-high Mt. Hwangmaesan encompasses the three peaks of Habong, Jungbong and Sangbong. Since the reflection of the mountain is also mirrored on the water of Hapcheon Lake, the mountain is also called ‘Sujungmae’ (literally meaning ‘ume (Japanese apricot) blossom under water’). In spring, azalea and rhododendron blossoms take over the entire mountain; in summer, you can enjoy the refreshing valley area; in the fall, the sound of birds singing is everywhere; and in winter, harsh winds swirl around the snow-capped Dongnipbong Peak.

Spotted
National Geographic’s photo-of-the-day by Logan Watts.
Original article by National Geographic:
A leopard gingerly crosses the branch of an acacia tree in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. “We were almost back to camp when someone in our party spotted this solitary leopard from well over a hundred meters,” writes Your Shot member Logan Watts. “As we slowly approached, it seemed relaxed and began to move up a branch in profile. The dappled foliage and powerful limbs of the acacia paired with the spotted muscular pose of the cat seemed fitting for black and white.”

Bovet Amadeus Fleurier Tourbillon Virtuoso III

An exquisite new entry in Bovet’s line of heirloom watches.

Original article by DreamChrono:

The creation of the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Virtuoso III presented a quandary – how to present a tourbillon and a perpetual calendar together on a dial, when such a pairing often struggle for domination. Mr Raffy had two very clear requirements, that the perpetual calendar should be readable and that the view of the tourbillon should not be compromised. This design required a re-think of the possibilities, and the result is a masterful display of watchmaking prowess.
