While observing the aurora borealis is a truly awe-inspiring and often breathtaking experience, the images that come out of modern-day cameras do not match what an observer witnesses in real life.
Mike Taylor has photographed fantastic Northern Lights displays, and then modified the captured images to reflect the less-dramatic colors and hues seen by the naked eye. These slides show “true” scenes of auroras — captured by Taylor’s camera — each followed by desaturated images that reflect what a human eye would see.
A healer of renown, Yarrow leaves bind an open wound to keep infection at bay and knit tender flesh, rent in battle. Its leaves grow in long green feathers and they may be chewed and applied as a poultice with further feathery tendrils and stems tied to bind the dressing in place. A top first-aider of the field, Yarrow goes hand in hand with Houseleek and indeed the two often grow together in a mass. Weed, though rarely an instigator of aggression, lives as an outsider in a brutal time and battle finds him. He learns in the Poison Diaries that Yarrow is fair currency to pay for violence’s heavy cost.
