I will get all the comfort and pleasure possible out of this day, and I will do something to add to the measure of the world’s happiness or well-being. I will control myself when tempted to be irritable or unhappy, I will look for the bright side of every event. “I shall be given help to meet anything that comes to-day. Everything will be for the best. I shall succeed in whatever I undertake. I cannot fail.“
—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox, The Heart of the New Thought

The Skyforge was first discovered by Jeek of the River and his crew who were traveling south from Hsaarik Head to settle. They scouted the area later named Whiterun Hold and found a mysterious structure that was described as “a monument of a bird whose eyes and beak were opened in flame.” It was discovered that the monument was feared by the native elves and suspecting that it held great power, Jeek and his crew settled and built Jorrvaskr at the foot of the Skyforge, so it would provide their steel.

Day to Night in New York City

Photographer Stephen Wilkes aims to capture stunning cityscape’s and landmark sites’ transition from day to night in a single photograph. He creates a 2-D version of a time-lapse video by taking images for at least 10 hours. Wilkes then combines 30 to 50 photographs to create the ideal gradient. 

Below, we have compiled our favorite NYC shots. The results are stunning and ephemeral. We have seen thousands of photographs of Central Park and Times Square, but a few convey the concept of time and its natural effects on the majestic scenery.
