Oddly enough, a photograph I took in 2007 has been chosen as one of Popular Science’s 2009 “The Year’s Most Amazing Scientific Images” (I’m #34 in the gallery). I guess that’s because the image wasn’t widely distributed until the NY Times picked it up earlier this year. Not that I’m complaining, of course.
My favorite image in Popular Science’s lineup is this one, a spectacular confluence of lightning and volcanic eruption captured by Carlos Gutierrez. But there are plenty of other stunning images in the gallery. Go see.
