Sunday surprise

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

[ by Charles Cameronlasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate ]

Scarier than any horror movie, more piercing than any fire and brimstone sermon, real life:

It is highly unusual for an open portal to be captured on film, but meteorologist James Spann caught this beauty as it was closing behind an unfortunate colleague.

Sunday surprise — naval biology, the sad fact of the matter
