Photographers in different parts of the world have been busy covering active volcanoes in recent weeks. In Indonesia, Italy, El Salvador and Japan, the craters in the earth erupted with lava, gases, or ash.
People observe an eruption at the South East Crater of Mt. Etna from the monitoring station of the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology at the Schiena dell'Asino, near Catania, in Sicily, southern Italy, early Dec. 30. Mt. Etna is Europe's most active volcano at 3,350 meters. (Salvatore Allegra/Associated Press)
We were on a boat in the Arctic Ocean when we came upon this polar bear mama and cub. The cub leaned on mom's shoulder and they looked so relaxed, as the backlit sun shined a rim light outlining their profile. It was a warm winter in October, about 15F.
View of Vancouver City from my favourite view point in local mountains. It was after late evening hike when I was watching spectacular sunset and landscape slowly falling asleep. Layer of fresh, untouched snow was illuminated by lights of moon,sunset and the city lights. It was magical show and it was great feeling to watch it all from above.
