I’ve linked to a specific set of photos from this site before, but I don’t know why I’ve never linked straight to the main page.
Boston.com has a section titled “The Big Picture”, which they dub as News Stories in Photographs. There is a wide range of subjects, and each photo has great captions so you know what’s going on.
The picture above is from the Antarctica set, and the caption read:
A person stands silhouetted by the South Pole sunset on April 6, 2008. The sun dipped below the horizon on March 20th and did not appear again until September 22nd.
Pretty interesting stuff. Check out The Big Picture HERE.
