The Boston Globe has a web project called The Big Picture. Every few days they post a series of pictures covering some theme. These series often contain stunning and powerful images. A few days ago, they posted a picture series from Antarctica. It is a dangerous, but immensely beautiful place. Below are a couple of pictures from the picture series.

I've always been a big space fan. Not just sci-fi, but astronomy in general. Space can be a beautiful place. This is a spectacular picture of one of the manned stations in Antarctica with an amazing view of the night sky overhead. Just wow!

This is just a picture of an iceberg. An absolutely awesome picture. The rich color combined with the starkness of the surroundings makes it look unreal. Again, wow!

I highly recommend keeping an eye on The Big Picture site. You never know what you might find.
