Today is the 47th annual Earth Day, a day to celebrate the beauty of the atmosphere, oceans, and biosphere of the planet that sustains us. This week I’ve had the distinct pleasure of picking a few of my favorite WunderPhotos
uploaded to our website over the past year, in keeping with the Earth Day tradition established by Dr. Jeff Masters (who’s off today). The photos below are all drawn from our World View Gallery
, which is updated weekly with the top WunderPhotos of the week.
Our thanks go out to all of you who have participated in making ours the largest (now 1.9 million!) and best weather photo gallery on the Internet. As someone who enjoys landscape and sky photography, I find it a never-ending treat to peruse the meteorological eye candy our members post each day. It’s also fun to see the shout-outs and high-fives that many of our photos receive in the comments section beneath each image. Thanks again for making WunderPhotos the eye-popping site that it is. Here’s to a meaningful and enjoyable Earth Day, from all of us at WU.

On a beautiful Friday, April 15, a crew of WU volunteers trekked from the home office in downtown San Francisco to the Presidio
, culling more than 100 cubic feet of invasive vegetation from the area near Mountain Lake.
