BBC Earth has again published some interesting galleries of photographs. First off, their “weird and wonderful photo quiz” features some very unusual views of things both common and exotic.

Norway’s Svalbard archipelago is accommodating, and along with warm season shots, comforting views of actual snowy landscapes, with resident wildlife, can be found at: http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150321-the-icy-majesty-of-svalbard
