Hidden in Plain Sight: During my visit to the Amalfi Coast in Italy I ventured for a day to Sorrento. This gorgeous island had an amazing coastline that I stuck to for the day. Because of a mix-up with ferry dock numbers I missed my ferry and had to wait two hours for the next one. I decided I would head back to town and went down a street I had passed a few times that day. The ground opened up, almost out of nowhere, where this absolute beauty, apparently “Valle dei Mulini”, was which I gazed at and shot for almost the entire period before I left for my next boat.

Tormenta: On June 4, 2011 began Cordon Caulle eruption, located in the Region of Los Rios in Chile. A rash that lasted about 12 months where people and animals had become accustomed to living with the daily fall of ash, which also caused problems in the air traffic in the south of America. The first days of the eruption could be seen from hundreds of miles around explosions and thunderstorms from the expulsion of lava. This photograph was taken on the second night of eruption from the town of Lago Ranco.
