If ever a picture cried out for the word "Behold!", this may be it. A beautiful photograph of sun striking the Atlantic at Madiera Island, Portugal, one might easily believe either the hand of God or a UFO is involved in its creation. Those scientists who aren't baffled, stunned, or amazed will, like most everyone else, tend towards a more rational explanation. However, tuning all of this out, we can simply enjoy the beauty and wish that we had been there to see it for ourselves before the clouds closed in.
These stunning photos can be found at the Madiera Blog, along with many other evocative pictures. Here's another favorite of mine, capturing the roiling intensity of a storm at night as it threatens Garajau.
