Behind the Scenes of this Photo
Taken on Gareloi Island in the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, on July 21st, 2009
Trapped between the Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea the Aleutian Islands bear the brunt of atmospheric changes across those huge bodies of water. The mile-high volcanoes stick out of the ocean like giant teeth, trapping moisture and becoming their very own cloud and weather generators.
