Photo of the Day

image of a solitary puffin, a black and white sea bird with an orange beak, standing on a cliff overlooking a beautiful landscape
From the Telegraph's Pictures of the Day for 11 December 2013: A solitary puffin lives life on the edge as it stares out at a coastal landscape from its cliff top perch. Christian Schweiger, 42, was just a few feet away as he photographed the moment on the volcanic peninsula of Dyrholaey, in southern Iceland. He said: "The puffins were busy taking their prey into the nest holes in the turf on the upper edge of the cliffs." [Christian Schweiger/Solent News]
What a stunning photograph. I love when this sort of light gives coastal landscapes a sense of the surreal.
