  “sulfur pits”
Contributor: dennis herron

Why we like it:   Dennis Herron has been submitting some terrifically moody and evocative images lately. Check out his portfolio – especially the “landscapes – nature” set. Actually, it was quite tough to choose a favorite today! This image is definitely near the top.

It’s a unique view of a commonly photographed location, but rendered here in a silvery, almost otherworldly form. The two distant figures in the steam clouds are perfectly placed, and give a necessary sense of scale that balances the thin horizontal lines of the walkway and lines in the sulfur pit. Without those figures, the image wouldn’t have made it atop today’s chart!

What do you think?
