Big PictureThe Boston Globe has set up an insanely beautiful feature called “The Big Picture.” Each week, they pick out a dozen or more stunning pictures on some topic and display them at huge size. The latest theme is “Earth From Above,” and the pictures are all from photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. I don’t know why, but this picture really spoke to me (click through for the full size shot). It’s a fresh expanse of lava in Iceland that has cooled down enough for moss and other organisms to colonize it. Life always finds a way.

  1. Wow. I mean…wow. I am awed speechless by nature’s magnificence. The shots are great and Mr. Arthus-Bertrand is brilliant.

  2. The Earth from Above is an absolutely incredible series – my travels abroad have coincided serendipitously with traveling exhibits of the photos, so they have a special place in my heart. They manage to highlight both the differences and similarities between far-flung locations, accentuating the vastness and the interconnectedness of the planet at the same time – amazing!
