    Update: This was labeled as a tornado, but other pinners say it's actually shadow on a sand dune. Older post: Amazing weather. Tornado in Namibia. National Geographic. Several photos

    Tornado in the desert of Namibia. When the last of my babies is grown and leaves the nest I plan on indulging a craving for a particular adventure: stormchasing. As long as I can remember I have had dreams about tornados, and while the personal, close-up encounters leave me with a great deal of reverence and cautious respect, they have also imparted an abiding hunger to chase. I always thought it would lead me to a summer adventure in the midwest for a couple of weeks, chasing with a professional storm team. Seeing this photo my horizons have suddenly expanded. I don't know how frequent this occurrence is in a place like Namibia, and it certainly looks a great deal more ominous, but it's inspired a deep curiosity to learn more. Thanks to Jenn Smith for helping me discover the terrible beauty of this unexpected treasure and potential future adventure from photographer Francesco Middei of National Geographic Italia. -- Eve.

June 5, 2011 | a volcano in the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle chain of south-central Chile erupted after lying dormant for more than 50 years. The government evacuated several thousand residents as Puyehue threw ash more than 6 miles into the sky, pushing the plume toward neighboring Argentina. Authorities had already put the area around the volcano on alert after a flurry of earthquakes earlier on Saturday -- at one point, the tremors reached an average of 230 per hour.

I hate that this is a real place, but what a surreal and fantastical setting for a shoot this would be.
