Caves Lighting Up The Darkness:
Peter Gedei Cave Photography
Exploration of caves takes us into a world much different from that above ground, a world of darkness surrounded by rock and mud. Exotic formations, streams and waterfalls, tight crawlways, deep canyons and pits, huge rooms with large blocks of breakdown, crickets, bats and cave rats await the cave explorer.

This website was created as a result of my many trips to Egypt and my experiences while visiting and photographing the ancient sites. Over the past ten years I have visited and revisited many archaeological sites, vast and awesome temples, fascinating tombs and out-of-the-way places where the memory of an ancient civilisation remains only in scattered ruins. The journey led me to a serious study of Egyptology, a passion that I expect will continue for the rest of my life.

Wooden Architecture, Northern Lights, Iguaçu & Fuel Vapor Car
Mountains comprise 70% of Japan's land area and the Japanese have traditionally valued forests and carefully fostered the culture of wood. There are many large trees in Japan and Japanese people have venerated them as sacred objects while valuing their timber in their daily lives. In this segment, we will introduce the charm of Japan's wooden structures and introduce some of Japan's finest examples: Todaiji Temple Hall (48 meters high, the world's biggest wooden structure), the five-storied pagoda of Horyuji Temple (32.5 meters high, the world's oldest wooden structure), Kintai-kyo bridge (constructed in 1673), and Ise Shrine, which is regularly rebuilt to revere the freshness of wood.
When solar flares hit the Earth's magnetic field, the skies at both poles can light up with auroras. The particles also create very low frequency electromagnetic waves, a type of natural radio that can be picked up around the globe. Every year sound recordist Steve McGreevy heads north where the reception is best and points his receiver at the sky.
Additional information about observing natural ELF-VLF radio at ground-level, including additional audio files, are at Stephen P. McGreevy's ELF-VLF radio Web site: Spaceweather Sounds, Realm of Natural VLF Radio Phenomena.
Taller than Niagara Falls, and twice as wide; Iguazu Falls are the result of a volcanic eruption which left yet another large crack in the earth. More videos of one of the most beautiful waterfalls of the world.

This new concept car - the “alé” (alay) uses regular gasoline and a new “fuel vapor technology” to achieve not only outstanding mileage, but extremely low emissions. The first prototype is now complete and the results are outstanding. Plans are for limited production ale's to begin fabrication in 2008.

Planet Earth - MountainsTour the mightiest mountain ranges, starting with the birth of a mountain at one of the lowest places on Earth and ending at the summit of Everest.
One of Earth's rarest phenomena is a lava lake that has been erupting for over 100 years. The same forces built the Simian Mountains where troops of gelada baboons live, nearly a thousand strong. In the Rockies, grizzlies build winter dens inside avalanche-prone slopes. The programme also brings us astounding images of a snow leopard hunting on the Pakistan peaks, a world first.
