Yuck, the World Press Photo Awards people have a crappy website. But once you manage to get a look at the photos it's more impressive. Though the watermarks do detract a bit. Anyway, I just thought you might like to take a look at the current winner in their Nature category. Click here or on the little picture to get a bigger version. It's of Chalten Volcano - complete with massive electrical discharges - taken by Carlos F. Gutirrez. Imagine glancing out of your window and seeing that. It's enough to make you forget what you went upstairs for.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
