That first link puts Mt. St. Helens in Oregon, which is a bit off. Otherwise this is pretty, and interesting. Also a lot of what they show requires technology that wasn't available until recently, which makes it kind another kind of cool. Just a few years back people would not have been able to enjoy these types of grand/epic views.

This is great. Makes me want to take a year or two off to visit them all.

Nice pix, but this post would be 10x better if it didn't read like a fratboy email forward.

Nice. I've been in a similar ice-dagger field to the one shown in the "Water and Ice" link, only in Cerro el Plomo, not Ojos del Salado, also in Chile. They're much, much more impressive than you can tell by the pic.

A previous FFP about freaky ice formations.

Some very cool stuff here, although it's marred by a few 'shopped pictures and composites (iceberg at bottom right) not identified as such.

I liked the lightning videos. Lightning hitting the tower in Toronto, and then the strike that happened right in front of the guy w/camera.

The 'rare ice star' is actually a sculpture by Andy Goldsworthy, who is worth a MeFi post of his own.
