Photo of the Day


Description: An Icelandic lava flow glows bright orange and emanates clouds of fire-lit steam into the night sky while a brilliant aurora flares in the background.

UK Photographer James Appleton captures two of Earth's most astounding phenomena just hangin' out together for the evening -- an erupting volcano and the aurora borealis.

The rest of the gallery (and the story of Appleton's trek to get these images) is well worth a click.
