It seems obvious to me that you should start a spree of posts about the great outdoors with photos of the great outdoors. And these are some pretty GREAT photos. James Appleton is a photographer who you probably describe as “extreme” and not look stupid saying it. A good example are the photographs he captured of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano as it went nuts back in 2010, which you can see at top. Hell, even Wired did a piece about him and his photos.
James certainly seems like the perfect personification of a person who loves nature and really experiencing the ruggedness of the outdoors. But what’s even better is that he documents it all for those of us who aren’t so adventure inclined. He’s got so much work to pour through, all of it pretty incredible.
