EARTH Gulf of Mexico -- 22 Jun 2010 -- A NASA satellite image shows the massive extent of the leaking crude oil from the damaged BP/Haliburton rig (Deepwater Horizon - which is more or less in the centre of the oil slick) in the Gulf of Mexico - seen as a brown/grey area on this image almost the size of the US state of Florida. While efforts continue - without success - to prevent the oil from contuing to leak out, the fissures in the rock continue to leak as much crude as one Exxon Valdez leak per week - threatening to pollute areas far beyond the Gulf of Mexico. Mid Atlantic currents indicate that the North Atlantic Ocean could be severely polluted if the leaks are not prevented soon -- Picture by Lightroom Photos | NASA

Contemporary World War One illustration of a British private engaged in hand to hand combat. It depicts the soldier fighting with Germans in a shell hole on the Ypres front in Western Flanders in 1917. He has already bayoneted one of the enemy, who lies at his feet, and is attacking another while a third is in the process of fleeing. Ypres was the centre of sustained and intense battles between the Germans and Allied forces for much of the war, including the Third Battle of Ypres (July 31 - November 6 1917, also known as the Battle of Passchendaele). The illustration, by an unknown artist, appeared in The War Illustrated periodical in October 1917.

An estuary in France at low tide. Some of the boats are floating in the narrow strip of water that remains whilst others lie beached. The light is weak and ethereal; the mud banks reflect the available light whilst the trees in the background are shrouded in mist.
