Mount Rainier at Sunset

As we often say : the best camera is the one you have with you!

This photo of the east side of Mount Rainier was captured by Rabid from his window seat on an airplane.

Mount Rainier is a large stratovolcano located 54 miles (87 km) southeast of Seattle. It is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the Cascade Volcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft (4,392 m).

Trinchesia nudibranch on a soft coral

Nudibranchs are one of the most diverse species of sea slugs. And they come in a great amount of shapes, colors, and sizes. Always a challenge to find, and to photograph in an interesting way.

Volcanic Iceland

The 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull

This one is taken early in the morning April 17th 2010. Gunnar arrived there the day before and decided to stay over night in his car to get the beautiful volcanic sunrise.

He had been awake for more than 24 hours when this picture was taken.

This is a 25-second single exposure.

Riding On A Taxi Windshield in Brooklyn

Red Bull Illume Photo Contest 2016 :The New Creativity category was won by Ale Di Lullo from Italy, for this photo of Aaron Chase riding on the windshield of a taxi in Brooklyn, New York.

I understood that a shot like this had to be made in an iconic spot and the spot had to be in a city so it was clear that New York City with all its bridges was the place. And what could have been better than a NYC cab to shoot from? It took us one year of preparation, one full day of work, involved a few people and a bit of money. But I kept shooting, all the while fearing I would break the windscreen, and 12 attempts later I nailed this shot.

Musician Plays Piano in the Middle of the Arctic as Calving Glaciers Crash Behind Him

Acclaimed Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi performs one of his own compositions on a floating platform in the Arctic Ocean, in front of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway.

The composition, Elegy for the Arctic, was inspired by eight million voices from around the world calling for Arctic protection. You can watch the stirring performance in the embedded video here : https://goo.gl/FfBGqm

The 2.6 x 10 meter artificial iceberg platform was made from more than 300 triangles of wood attached together and weighed a total of nearly two tonnes. A grand piano was then placed on top of the platform for Einaudi’s incredible performance.

Beautiful Uninhabited Island in Madagascar

On a return flight from Madagascar, reddit user fulminic flew over this uninhabited island and snapped this amazing photo. When he got home, he scoured Google Earth and was able to locate the remote island in East Madagascar.

The locals called it Antafana Island, and on his next trip he endeavoured to visit it. Reaching the island was an adventure in itself.

On reddit he explains:
I had to look for it on Google Earth. Then I located the largest nearby village and how to get there. To get this town we did a four day hike because it’s airport was inoperable. Of course there were easier ways to reach it, but we wanted to approach from the north, so by foot. The town was developed some how (touristic) and there were one or two nice accommodation run by French people. I informed about the island and they were able to take us there.
 
Located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Southeast Africa, Madagascar is a biodiversity haven and over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth.
