in Society

Following the series of nature images of April 2011, the National Geographic Magazine has released the issues of best pictures in May 2011. The most astonishing photos of the month feature amazing scenes of Lago di Olginate in Italy, Agkistrodon piscivorus and Matterhorn towers.

 

Lago di Olginate, Italy

This picture amazingly captures the think layer of clouds over the valley near the south of Lake Como, northern Italy. In the above image, the dense cloud hides almost the valley and leaves some artificial lights that make the city like an opaque blanket. The village over distance is clearly seen out of the blanket.
