The pre-WWII photos are chilling, and even more so when you remember that the incredible death and destruction which they foretold was brought about through the twin forces of the depression and consequently virulent nationalism.  It seems we've learnt very little since then.

Ian, I was thinking about posting almot exactly the same thing.... but I knew I would be seen as a doom-monger.
But you are absolutely right, and the feeling of it building up again is tangible.

Bioluminescent plankton hunters capture 'magical' glow.

"Every splash, every jump, made the sea just light up. It won't be an experience we forget easily."
Photographers and nature lovers have been watching bioluminescent plankton glowing off the Welsh coast.

Bioluminescence describes the light that some living creatures, such as fireflies and jellyfish, emit from their cells.
Photographer Kris Williams captured the first sighting in Wales this year in Beaumaris, Anglesey on 24 June.
