    Thórsmörk (the valley of Thor), Iceland. After a morning full of drama, during which we almost ‘drowned’ our car in a river – and then pulled out a young Frenchman who had – we reached Thórsmörk, in the south of Iceland. We walked up to a viewpoint where we could see...exactly nothing, due to the fog. We waited, and eventually the fog started to lift, but I still needed to wait a lot longer for a car to appear in the perfect position to add a sense of scale to the mountain landscape.

    Take a look at some stunning photographs as the UK competition offers an insight into the mesmerizing landscapes, wildlife and nature of Earth. Participants include both professional and amateur photographers.

    The annual competition "Outdoor Photographer of the Year" has chosen category winners for this year's best photographs. 

    The jury selected winners from 18,000 photographs taken in more than 60 countries. So far, the organizers have published the works that ranked first in nine categories.

      Remembering Feb. 21, the Day When Maidan Supplanted the Ukrainian Constitution

      Instead of becoming the framework for a peaceful transition of power, the Agreement on settlement of political crisis in Ukraine ultimately untied the hands of the opposition and allowed them to capture government buildings without resistance, forcing the legitimate then-President Yanukovych out of country.
