Beautiful images at new National Geographic site

I first read about this at Wired.

National Geographic has put a photostream of images online to celebrate its 125th anniversary.

Not all of these are unpublished. I remember some of them, but from long, long ago. They are all worth sharing with new generations.

Here is another nice volcano image:

No credit given.

Too much heat on a muggy summer’s day? OK, here’s Fairbanks, Alaska, undated
