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 Image

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

Enlarged congestion charging zone, London Featured 15 Jul 2005 Image

Enlarged congestion charging zone, London

Enlarged congestion charging zone, central London, England. The congestion charge zone was introduced on 17th February 2003 as a way to raise funds for improvements in London's public transport and to ease the traffic in the city centre. It currently covers the London Inner Ring Road, which includes the whole of the City of London and the West End. In February 2004, it was proposed that the zone should be extended west (seen here) to cover the whole of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Despite the unpopularity of this idea, it is thought that the extension will take effect sometime in 2007
