One-of-a-Kind Sea Organ in Croatia Creates Haunting Music With Ocean Waves

Imagine listening to the gentle sound of waves lapping on the shore coupled with organ music – yup, that’s the Sea Organ.

Have you ever listened to the crashing of waves on the shore and felt it lull you to sleep? You’re not alone.

Now, imagine that relaxing melody being coupled with organ music, and what do you get? No, it’s not something you can only enjoy in your dreams – there is actually an organ that turns the rhythm of waves into music.

Located in Croatia, the Sea Organ, or Morske Orgujle, was constructed by renowned architect Nikola Basic in 2005. Stretching over 230 feet long, narrow crevices are carved in the stone steps on the coast, leading to organ pipes. When the waves gently lap onto the steps, it pushes the air through the pipes, producing clear, albeit a tad bit haunting, music.

Of course, it doesn’t always sound the same. What you hear when you visit may not sound like what was on the video. One thing is guaranteed, though, this architectural marvel will leave you feeling relaxed and at peace.

Landscapes Painted On Tree Logs Depict The Beauty Of Nature And Proof Of Its Destruction.

An amazing work of art about the beauty and importance of nature.

By

Nature is one of God's finest creations, his precious gift to humankind and his expression of beauty. The vast oceans, highest mountains, blue skies, tall and green trees--they are all part of mother nature. Sadly, we are also responsible for its own destruction and if we don't take good care of it, this beauty will soon fade and perish.

Alison Moritsugu, a New York-based artist paints picturesque and natural landscapes on logs and tree stumps. Aside from promoting art, history and the breathtaking beauty of nature, her advocacy is to raise awareness about what is currently happening to our environment and what we should be doing to save it.

"Today, photoshopped images of verdant forests and unspoiled beaches invite us to vacation and sightsee, providing a false sense of assurance that the wilderness will always exist."

"Moritsugu's paintings mirror the optimistic style of 18th and 19th century paintings."

30 Sticky-Note Illustrations That Accurately Convey The Grim Realities of Adult Life

Absolutely funny! #8 is gold!

With all its perks and privileges, adulthood can surely be fun. Once you hit the so-called “legal age,” you can freely do things that weren’t really allowed when you were yet a kid. For example, you can check out bars, purchase cigarettes and alcohol, work full-time and then be able to spend your money on whatever you want. Along with that, you can also register to vote and drive your own vehicle.

There is no denying, however, that it is likewise a time of overwhelming responsibilities. You have to live up to high expectations not only from your parents but also from the society in general. In short, you are expected to act your age and be all mature. You need to keep a job to stay alive and, once employed, you get very little free time.

This is exactly the reason why Chaz Hutton’s sticky-note illustrations are actually very hilarious.

With his simple lines and witty observations, this London-based artist successfully captured what it’s like to be an adult through his funny comics and graphs....
