'Nother Cool Picture
You might think the above picture was some sort of artwork created for a science fiction story, especially when you learn the photographer's name is Maciej Winiarczyk and the picture was taken at a place called Jokulsarlon Lagoon.
Believe it or not, the picture is from Iceland (our old friend the Bardarbunga Volcano, actually) and Maciej Winiarczyk is from Caithness, Scotland. Which leads one to wonder how the name Winiarczyk sounds in a brogue, or if the Scots simply throw up their hands and call him "Winnie."
In any event, the spectacular image combines the Milky Way, the Aurora Borealis and the glow from Bardarbunga in an image which makes even non-tokers say, "Wow, look at the colors!"
