Siberian Farm Cats take Over .

Russian farmer Lebedeva has turned her farm into a self-proclaimed ‘Catland,’ and has gone viral with the incredible photographs and videos she takes of her many glorious Siberian cats.

Stationed in Prigorodny, just outside Barnaul, Siberia, Lebedeva and her husband Sergey have been raising cats for over a decade. “How many do we have now? To such a question I usually answer ‘a million, maybe more,'” Lebedeva tells DesignYouTrust. “They live in the henhouse… They have three ‘little bedrooms’ there where can they sleep according to how they feel. Our cats protect the chickens and rabbits from rats and mice.

Alla’s photo and video diary of her feline family’s daily adventures now have a following of over 2 thousand on YouTube, yet they continued to be circulated around the Internet without permission and passed off as ‘Norwegians.’
Though the Siberian cat is closely related to the famous Norwegian Forest Cat, please remember that they are separate species – and always remember to credit anything you share if possible. It’s good for your health.

Equipped with the most-advanced gyro stabilized camera in the world, the team at Teton Gravity Research flew from Kathmandu to Mount Everest, capturing the first ultra HD footage ever shot above 20,000 feet.
I’ve never seen these mountains look so beautiful.
Geography
The Himalayas are bordered on the north by the Tibetan Plateau, on the south by the Indo-Gangetic Plain, on the northwest by the Karakoram and Hindu Kush ranges, and on the east by the Indian state of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh.
The western anchor of the Himalayas — Nanga Parbat — lies just south of the northernmost bend of the Indus River, while the eastern anchor — Namcha Barwa — is situated just west of the great bend of the Yarlung Tsangpo River.
The Himalayas span five countries: India, Nepal, Bhutan, China (Tibet), and Pakistan, with the first three countries having sovereignty over most of the range. (via Wikipedia).

3D Poster Art by Aleksander Gusakov.

As many of us are in the midst of winter, it’s nice to see these illustrations of beautiful blooms by Aleksander Gusakov.
The Ukrainian graphic designer produced a series of decorative posters highlighting colourful floral bouquets and bold text.
Gusakov wove the letters between leaves and petals, and it gives the illusion that his compositions are 3D.

To create these works, Gusakov used a combination of hand-crafted illustration and a computer-produced font.
This provides a nice visual contrast.
The flowers are realistically rendered and feature intricate details – we see every small petal.
Conversely, the font is flat and graphic with no shading at all.
They together form lovely images meant to adorn your walls.
