Tom Kilroy posted a photo:  Alejandro Selkirk Island, previously known as Más Afuera and renamed after the marooned sailor Alexander Selkirk, is the largest and most westerly island in the Juan Fernández Archipelago of the Valparaíso Region of Chile. From time to time the Island was used as a penal colony. It appears to house a colony of fishermen given the boats anchored off shore.

Von Karman cloud vortices above Alexander Selkirk Island, Chile.  These clouds look like they have had a hole punched through them. In fact they are naturally occurring vortices crafted by wind patterns on the clouds. In this image these cloud vortices (swirls down left) have been caused by the peak of Alexander Selkirk Island (bottom left) disrupting wind-blown clouds.  This image was captured by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM ) sensor on NASA's Landsat 7 satellite.
