Lukas and Salome Augustin have made a beautiful portrait of Afghanistan.
Note that this was shot with Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D cameras and a variety of Canon lenses.
Zoom it full screen and enjoy.

My flickr contact Julian has posted a spectacular monochrome landscape.
Words are inadequate to describe the experience of photographing this immense power and beauty, And the most exciting part is with each trip I really don’t know what to expect. But today I see these storms as living, breathing things. They are born when the conditions are right, they gain strength as they grow, they fight against their environment to stay alive, they change form as they age, and eventually they die. They take on so many different aspects, personalities and faces. My only hope is that my images can do justice to these amazing phenomena of nature.
Incredible storm images. Go full screen for best effect.
Joel Meyerowitz has a show up at the Tremaine Gallery at the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut that’s well worth seeing if you’re in the area: The City Resilient. The images are spectacular: the superb photography and large scale increases the dramatic impact of the scale of the destruction at ground zero.
Amazon has the book of these images: Aftermath and the hardback is priced very reasonably.
Here’s a second video on how Meyerowitz got entry to the site which no press was allowed in to at the time.
