Psychadellivision by ~Volcanic-Penguin on deviantART A 'dream come true': UK photographer gets aurora and volcano in same shot | Weather Blog UK photographer James Appleton had a dream: To capture the beauty of the Northern Lights in the same photograph as the awesome power of a volcano. And when the Fimmvorduhals volcano began erupting in Iceland -- one of the world's best places to see the Northern Lights -- he knew he had to make a very challenging but ultimately rewarding trek to capture both events simultaneously. He survived a long, solo trek up amid a belching volcano while carrying roughly 60 pounds of equipment, and then had to weather an intense snowstorm that had whiteout conditions amid a full blizzard. In the end, the hard work paid off. Quoted below is the e-mail he sent to me: I went to Iceland specifically to go and view this eruption - I'd been over this mountain pass a number of times before in previous trips, but always in summer, and even then it is a pretty bleak place - not somewhere you want to get caught out. You can see more of Appleton's incredible shots from his trip on his website.

Silent World by Michael Kenna Silent World by Michael Kenna Magic Mushroom Milkshake Island Out in a dirty surfer bar in Bali earlier this year, a guy called Big D—an ex-convict with a huge, South Carolina-themed tattoo—told my friends and I about Gili Trawangan, a tiny, idyllic island where magic mushroom milkshakes are sold on the side of the road like it's no big deal. Aware of the fact that ex-cons in dirty Balinese bars usually have the best party hook-ups, it seemed wise to take a day trip to Trawangan. The island is an early morning, two hour boat ride from mainland Bali. Our boat was called the Rizky Bone, which, coincidentally, is what I was going to call the nu-metal band I started with a rockabilly kid when I was 12. At first glance the island has all the hallmarks of a postcard-perfect holiday destination: white sand, clear turquoise water, old German dudes in revealing swimwear, and an impossible amount of Scandinavian babes who look like they're on vacation from the free-range beautiful people farm.
