I think this is the greatest photo I've ever seen. Perfect marriage between abstraction and nature.

I have a good collection of Nat Geographics (from 1960 to now) but this takes the cake.



From National Geographic:
Photograph by Kacper Kowalski, Panos Pictures
June 2013
Poland???As shadows lengthen near sunset, spring fields near Nowe erupt in a color riot. The photographer paraglided over Pomerania to get this abstract expressionist shot: a brushstroke of red poppy weeds flowering amid green grain sprouts.

    I think this is a good place to post this pic:



    This photo was the last photo Andrew Ashcraft texted to his wife before he and 18 other Hotshots were overcome by the Yarnell Hill Fire. The photo was posted by the Prescott Granite Mountain Hotshots on the "In Memory of Prescott Firefighters Lost 6/30/2013" Facebook page.

    This happened two days ago in northern AZ. 19 firefighters killed as they put their lives on the line to redirect the fires path away from the community. Heartbreaking.
