12th January 2012

Every year in autumn and winter, amazing Starling formations can be seen in parts of Europe including South England, Denmark and France. During the cold months, the birds become highly gregarious and turn into huge flocks of highly variable size.
Hundreds of thousands of birds can be part of the flocks. They form tight sphere-like formations in flight, frequently changing their shape providing stunning sights.

SkyDrive to allow unlimited photo and document storage

Tim Schiesser11 September 2011 – 09:06 51 Comments

Windows Live SkyDrive is about to get a considerable boost to the free storage space allowed with the service. Liveside reported earlier today that the popular Microsoft service will get a storage upgrade, allowing unlimited storage space for both Office documents and photos, leaving the original 25 GB for any other files you wish to store in the cloud.

This increase will be added to Windows Live SkyDrive Wave 5 sometime in the near future, and will be quite considerable when you take into account the 70 million people that use the service today. There are also plans to expand the realms of SkyDrive, as Microsoft is currently developing native clients for Windows, Mac OS X, iOS and Android along with the client embedded into Windows Phone 7.

Microsoft has been good at consistently increasing the space allowed for SkyDrive users. When the service launched in 2007 it only offered 500 MB, which increased to 5 GB the next year. With the launch of SkyDrive Wave 3 in late 2008 this got a huge increase to the current 25 GB – more than Google offers for free across their services and more than Dropbox’s 2 GB. With unlimited storage available for documents and photos, SkyDrive should cement itself in the top spot of providing cloud storage.

“Patrick Di Fruscia is an award-winning visionary fine art nature and landscape photographer from Canada.

He spent most of his childhood years away from the city, having been raised mostly in the Canadian countryside. From the time of his birth, his experiences in nature was to become a large influence in affecting his ultimate passion for the beauties of the natural world.

His love for the arts has grown throughout the years, and he attributes his devotion to interpreting nature in an artistic manner to his parents’ dedication to the arts. His father, Joseph, was a professional photographer during a period in his life and his mother, Michele, was gifted with artistic talents such as drawing, painting, and interior decorating. Her fine eye for details was a big influence on his perception of nature.

Since then, Di Fruscia’s work has won many awards, has been published and displayed thru a multitude of Medias (books, calendars, magazines, travel guides etc.) and by many prestigious companies such as, National Geographic and Kodak, just to name a few. His work has also been displayed in several art galleries around the world.

Di Fruscia has set his goals to always improve his craft. His quest to become a better photographer will never cease. He personally thinks that the learning curve is endless, and he has only himself to criticize when he feels that he is not living up to his artistic endeavors. Constantly searching for those rare magical moments when the Perfect Light embraces nature in all its glory, you can rest assured – that this is only the beginning of a long and dedicated quest to capture the breathtaking beauty of nature.”
