Last 28th may a hiker slipped on a wet slab of rock at the base of the Upper Yosemite Falls stream, being flushed about 30 meters (100 feet) down the rapids, but still able to hang to a large boulder and resting on top of it waiting for rescue. I was hiking the Yosemite Falls trail when the heli search and rescue team approached the falls. While I shot the scene (fallen hiker wasn't visible from my viewpoint) the heli pulled back and hiking ground rescue teams hurried past me to the location. Luckily, he ended up being rescued, alive. And I got a chopper in front of a huge waterfall!!

Landscape photograph of the Erta Ale volcano caldera, a molten lava pit - © Adriano Neves - acseven - All Rights Reserved
Nature has its ways of making us feel little, but nothing can quite compare to the sheer and brute forces of volcanoes. In the middle of the Afar Region (Ethiopia), Erta Ale reveals itself as a pulsating pathway to the depths beneath our feet, a molten lava portal to the inner core.
