Last year's summer holidays ended here...

This same place was the beginning of this year's summer.

Today's score: the sea. Nothing else.

Albedo 0.39

I'll never know why the see is the main recurring character in my images. I know it'll always be a source of surprises, of new events.

0.39, the average albedo of Earth, can be derived from this mysterious equation:

Scientists alert: Because of its light appearance, ice reflects much of the sun's radiation back into space whereas dark ocean water absorbs more of the sun's energy. As ice melts, more exposed ocean water changes the Earth's albedo, or fraction of energy reflected away from the planet. This leads to increased absorption of energy that further warms the planet in what is called ice-albedo feedback. [ Read article at NASA's site ]

No longer Albedo 0.39...
