    'This impressive photograph of the Colima Fire Volcano (3850 m high) was captured by Mexican photographer Sergio Tapiro Velasco on the night of December 13, 2015 after a long wait. Tapiro began taking the first shots from 7:30 at night and obtained this image four hours later from a safe position located 12 km from the volcano. '

    The image shows the volcano expelling incandescent material and a large ash column. One of the most conspicuous elements is the 600 meter long bright beam that forms from the right side. Lightning is part of the phenomenon known as a dirty storm that occurs when mineral particles expelled by the volcano collide with each other causing electrical discharges. The photographer captured his image with a Canon EOS 6D camera, at a shutter speed of 8, a 2.8 aperture and an ISO ( sensitivity to light) of 3200. The same volcano contributed to the success of the photo, says Tapiro, as “ The beam worked like a giant flash ”.

    'Pink beach, Komodo Island, Indonesia.
    The pink beach of Komodo Island, is one of seven pink sand beaches across the world. What makes the sand appear pink under the sun are microscopic residents, organisms called Foraminifera. They produce a red pigment on the coral reefs and leave small red particles behind that blend with the white sand.'

    'This rare orchid named ‘Flower of the Holy Spirit’ only blooms once a year. Before blooming it looks like a Mother and Child, and once it blooms it turns into a Dove in Flight'
    Just came across this with respect to these images. Well, still a sort of uplifting pic even if the images are unrelated:
    'None of this is true. The first picture is a seed pod and not a bloom. Both picture are unrelated, completely different plants. The white bloom is a Habenaria radiata, known as the egret orchid, not the Holy Ghost...'

    'Scientists have found that the Hydnellum peckii (aka strawberries and cream, bleeding tooth fungus, the Devil's tooth) can be used as an anti-coagulant to keep blood clots from forming and may someday be used to treat bacterial pneumonia and Alzheimer's.'
    (Sounds like a useful natural product for treating side effects from the vac)

    'A perfect image from Evan McKay⁠
    "The last time I shot the Milky Way here I got quite a good reception so I thought I'd give it another go with the new gear that I have. It was just as challenging as last time and I think the spray was even worse, but somehow managed to get some clear shots of it. It's probably technically a composite since I moved the tripod further away from the waterfall for the Milky Way to avoid spray, but it's aligned where it should be and scaled correctly.⁠

    Nikon D750/Sigma 40mm/Sigma 14-24mm⁠
    Sky: 40mm, ISO 3200, f/1.8, 6 sec [x4]⁠
