New Details on Aged Brain, Alzheimer's and Dementia

The analysis also highlights surprising variability in the aged brain, including examples of donors with resilience to pathology.

Excelsior Geyser and Milky Way

The stars and Milky Way shine over the Excelsior Geyser and Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park. This was taken this summer on my trip to Wyoming for the eclipse. I spent two nights in Yellowstone in the days leading up to the eclipse giving me a chance to photograph the geothermal features under the dark skies of the Yellowstone country.

As we are in Thanksgiving week I am very thankful for dark sky and the chance to go out and stare up at the stars.

Blending in

Fungus, unknown species

Principe

With the very same color as the decaying leaves on the ground this is a species that is easily missed, even though it is quite large.

I encountered many brightly colored fungi species on this islet, some were magnets to insects, but this one is very different and also was free from insect bites.

Monk in Solitude, Laos

It was a treat to stumble across this unexpected cave in northern Laos. I explored further inside the dark passages where I witnessed this monk, as he kneels in solitude while deep in thought, with light shining perfectly over him from a hole in the cave wall above.

Spending over an hour heading down a very bumpy dirt road on an old rusty push bike, I was told there was an amazing lagoon awaiting my arrival at the other end. Much to my disappointment, this lagoon turned out to be a couple of muddy holes in the ground, overcrowded with locals and tourists alike, it definitely was not the reward I was hoping for. With this in mind and determined to make my trip worthwhile, I headed off to climb up the mountain close by, scrambling along aimlessly in attempt to make my own adventure. Eventually, I came across a small opening in the mountain wall a few hundred metres up. Curiously I entered, and found a gigantic cave opening up in front of me. Inside was a little shrine with two Buddhist Monks praying next to it. I crept inside to investigate and observe. The two monks acknowledged me and welcomed me in.

I'd like to stress that this is not a staged portrait. I scrambled over many boulders and rocks in very dark conditions without a light to get in the exact right position. Any cuts and scratches from all the scrambling definitely paid off with this one. It turned out to be one of my favourite photographs from 2013...
