The Big Picture Blog

I recently learned of the Boston Globe‘s Big Picture blog via Very Short List, a blog that highlights a single item each day from the world of media and entertainment that has otherwise flown under the radar.

The Big Picture blog itself displays particularly noteworthy images from the newswire in large format (the inspiration for the blog was Life magazine). Recently, the blog selected a number of images taken during the eruption of Chile’s Chaiten volcano this past May. The photos speak for themselves. They simultaneaously capture both the beauty and shear destructive force of mother nature. Especially breathtaking are the photos of lightning. Unbelievable. Do yourself a favor and peep it HERE.
