The ice off “Russia’s northern shores” as seen by the Aqua satellite on Saturday September 21st 2013. This is a pseudo-colour image based on MODIS bands 1, 2 and 7. The image was obtained via NASA Worldview.
A change of mood today. Some slightly heavier relief from all the nonsense:
Out flew the web and floated wide
The mirror crack’d from side to side;
“The curse is come upon me,” cried
The Lady of Shalott.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
From “The Lady of Shalott”
