It's the end of 2013, which means it's time to pick the coolest photos of 2013.
And next, Time (also very dark, so I went for this shark):
From Agence France Presse (more dark but also some pretty ones; I picked five):
And these, from the Roosevelts (yet more dark news, but some bright spots):
Buzzfeed's collection (a mix):
From CNN (too many grim pics, but some nice ones too):
And ... the Atlantic (really, a beautiful selection):
From Yahoo en Espanol (a nice collection, nicely displayed):
There are a lot of cool pics, but this has to be the coldest:
Finally, here's one of my favorites, sunrise in Monument Valley:
Onward to 2014!
