Time Magazine has launched in partnership with Google a Timelapse site to show the impact, in as clear terms as possible, we have had on our planet.
As part of the project there is this gorgeous collection of vibrant landscapes caught from space.
Seems a bit counter intuitive to me, but these black and white underwater photos from Indonesian photographer Hengki Koentjoro seem even more vibrant and dynamic than so much underwater photography I've seen. There is a sense of moment, presence and space that often gets obscured by the saturated tones in full color photography. Or maybe it's just this photographer's eye.
Stunning photos of the Indonesian volcanao by Helminadia Jabur:
"The volcano is noted for its spectacular sunrises and majestic views all the way to Semeru volcano which is located further behind it. Ever since I saw some images of the volcano, I just could not help myself to visit the area and capture it."
