Lake Jokulsarlon and Ice from Breidamerkurjohull Glacier, Skaftafell National Park, Vatnajokull National Park, Southeast Iceland, Iceland Featured 15 Jul 2005 Print

Lake Jokulsarlon and Ice from Breidamerkurjohull Glacier, Skaftafell National Park, Vatnajokull National Park, Southeast Iceland, Iceland

Jokulsarlon is a large glacial lake in southeast Iceland, on the edge of Vatnajokull National Park. Situated at the head of the Breithamerkurjokull glacier, it developed into a lake after the glacier started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The lake has grown since then at varying rates because of melting of the glaciers. It is now 1.5 kilometers away from the oceans edge and covers an area of about 18 km2. It recently became the deepest lake in Iceland, at over 248 meters, as glacial retreat extended its boundaries. It is considered as one of the natural wonders of Iceland. The tongue of the Breithamerkurjokull glacier is a major attraction for tourists

Devilfish Featured 15 Jul 2005 Print

Devilfish

Devilfish, or two-stick stingfish (Inimicus filamentosus), lying in wait for prey on the seabed. This fish inhabits reefs and sandy areas in the tropical Indo-Pacific region, from east Africa to Micronesia. Its dorsal fin contains spines linked to venom glands, which protects it from predators. The sting is extremely painful but rarely fatal to humans. The fish is camouflaged to make it appear like a rock or piece of coral rubble. This means its prey, small fish and crustaceans, fail to notice it until it is close enough to engulf them with a sudden leap. Photographed in the Egyptian Red Sea

Hurricane Emily, 14th July 2005

Hurricane Emily in the Caribbean Sea, at 19:15 GMT (20:15 BST) on 14th July 2005. At this stage Emily was a category four hurricane, the second strongest level, with winds of over 220 kilometres per hour. Emily battered the island of Grenada (just below centre at right) on the 14th before heading towards Jamaica (out of frame at top left). At top left is Hispaniola, divided into Haiti (left) and the Dominican Republic (right). At top centre is Puerto Rico, and the islands of the West Indies arc from top to bottom right. Emily is the second strong hurricane of the unusually early 2005 season, after Dennis the week before. Imaged by the GOES-12 satellite
