From abandoned hospitals for the insane to creepy old forts: Incredible photographs capture forgotten New York

Incredible photographs by Paul Brake capture abandoned New York in mesmerising style

EXCLUSIVE. It's New York as you've very probably never seen it before - looking spookier, more mysterious and more ethereal than ever. Behold the incredible photographs of Paul Brake, who has an eye for capturing the forgotten and less glamorous sides of the city in jaw-dropping style. His Instagram page is packed with pictures of abandoned hospitals (top right), run-down forts and tourist attractions given a stylistic twist. Also pictured is the creepy Farm Colony on Staten Island (top left), the Statue of Liberty captured through the window of the Ellis Island Immigration Hospital (bottom right) and the Battery Weed fortification (bottom left). Paul moved to New York from Bournemouth in 1996.

The piercing eyes of Ethiopia's elders: Stunning portraits capture the guardians who wash the weary feet of pilgrims after they journey to 900-year-old Orthodox Christian churches

Stunning portraits capture Ethiopian elders in Lailbela

These stunning portraits capture the heavily-wrinkled skin, piercing eyes and stern expressions of Ethiopian elders portraits in astonishing detail. Photographer Roberto Pazzi, 44, of Mallorca, Spain, travelled to Lalibela, in north Ethiopia, where he spent two weeks with a tribe - learning about their culture and taking their photographs.  'To make them feel comfortable around me, I approached them with a smile and spoke to them about their lives and culture before taking any pictures,' he said. Lalibela's population is almost completely Orthodox Christian - and Mr Pazzi's portraits reflect the townspeople's dedication to religion as they're seen carrying crosses and holding prayer books. Known as Ethiopia's holiest city, it is home to 11 churches and famous for its monolithic rock-cut churches which were chiselled into the rock 900 years ago.

Dramatic images capture ferocious tornado that looks like a mushroom cloud battering the plains of Wyoming

Dramatic images capture ferocity of a unique tornado that looks like a mushroom cloud

At first glance, these images could be mistake for the mushroom cloud after a nuclear blast. But they actually show a ferocious tornado as it battered the plains of Wyoming.   Veteran storm chaser Greg Campbell captured the pictures of a rare twister as it left behind a trail of devastation near Laramie. Campbell, who snapped the pictures while on holiday northeast of Laramie, said it was the most dramatic tornado he'd ever seen.

Everest becomes a plastic peak: Shocking photos reveal piles of tourists' trash as locals run out of space to bury it

Shocking photos reveal piles of tourists' trash on Everest as locals run out of space to

The waste is produced by tons of plastics, beer cans, whiskey bottles, steel food containers, and other solid waste lodge owners import to satisfy the 100,000 tourists who arrive at base camp every year. Burning it releases toxic poisons into the air, and the buried and burned garbage does the same for groundwater supplies. Tourists were being made sick because of human waste being dumped into local rivers.

From undersea explosions to colossal ash plumes captured from space: The most jaw-dropping photographs of erupting volcanoes ever
The most jaw-dropping photos of erupting volcanoes ever

There are few natural events on Earth that can match the drama of an erupting volcano – as these incredible pictures show. They reveal their terrifying – and mesmerising – power. Some of the images were taken from space and show the colossal amount of ash they’re capable of thrusting into the sky. Ash plumes from volcanoes can surge to heights of over six miles. One image shows ash from a volcano in Tonga rocketing just 330 feet in the air, but it’s just as amazing – because the volcano that produced it was underwater.
