Waves, Iceland

This is a one-second exposure of the trails left by a crashing wave over small icebergs on Jökulsárlón beach; I think it looks a bit like an octopus.

A gynandromorph cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis): half male, half female.  The red half is probably the male half.

Waterfall, Iceland
photo credit: Hordur Finnbogason
This is an image I have had on my mind to get for three years. To align the waterfall and northern lights that are strong enough to light up the whole surroundings. At last it happened and I was at the right place at the right time. Godafoss means Waterfall of the Gods and takes its name from the old Nordic sagas.

There was a storm in Texas.  There wasn’t a fence.  Thus, the tumbleweeds all up in Josh Pitman’s business.  (That’s his house in the photo.)

Futility Closet:

This brecciated limestone, quarried near Florence, has a curious property: When it’s polished it produces the image of an ancient city.

2012 National Geographic Photography Contest, Honorable Mention
Eric Guth:

Glacial ice washes ashore after calving off the Brei amerkurjˆkull glacier, on Iceland’s eastern coast. During the waning light of summer this image was created over the course of a 4-minute exposure while the photographer backlit the grounded glacial ice with a headlamp for 2 of those 4 minutes.
