In the News...Colorado floods

When I started accumulating historic weather event images lately, I didn't imagine that Eon's home, Boulder County, Colorado, would soon see such calamitous weather. I have added a few images to Eon's In the News collection. As is our policy, images in this gallery are available to download, free of charge and without watermarks, at all resolutions during the month of the news events.

Here's one picture from the group of images depicting what our fellow residents of Colorado are experiencing this week.

Looking back at Colorado history, I also came across this image from the disastrous flood of 1864, in an area that is now part of Denver:

Weird weather!

New on Eon is Weird Weather, a gallery we will be adding to frequently for the rest of the year. As we are in the midst of hurricane season, we have added a number of subgalleries related to famous--or infamous--storms of years past. We have a lot to add to this category, so check back frequently!

Photos of Hindu sculpture, temples, and holy people

This week we augmented our Hinduism gallery with 30 black/white and sepia photographs of Hindu sculptures, carvings, temples and holy people. Stay tuned for more, as we are on a bit of an India kick this month! Below is a rock carving from Mamallapuram depicting the paradise of Indra. Mamallapuram is a group of temples in Tamil Nadu, India, built from the 7th-9th centuries AD, that features scenes from the Sanskrit epic the Mahabharata. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

We recently added several interesting illustrations to our Hinduism gallery. This set was done in the mid-1800s, and the pictures appear to have been hand-colored. This is an image of Vishnu, considered the preserver of the universe, and part of the Hindu trinity (or trimurti) that includes Brahma and Shiva. Hindu god Vishnu
