Chile's Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcano complex spews a scary cloud of ash and lightning during a June eruption that disrupted air travel throughout the region. Ricardo Mohr's stunning shot was picked to appear in National Geographic's "Pictures We Love: Best of October."

These spectacular birds-eye views of Uluru, offering a never before seen perspective of the 600 million year old monolith, were captured by the first drone to ever operate under permit inside Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Uluru is the tip of a huge rock that continues below the ground for possibly 5-6km. Uluru is 3.6km long and 348m at its tallest point. That is 43m higher than Sydney's Centrepoint Tower, 24m higher than the Eiffel Tower and just 33m lower than the Empire State Building.
The colour changes of Uluru result from the filtering effect of the earth's atmosphere on the sun's rays.
