We've reached the end of the week and the end of the month, so take some time to look back on some of this week's biggest stories in photos.

One of the most captivating photos we found this week came from the Australian International Airshow, where acrobatic pilots performed among billowing clouds of flames, much to the delight of the crowds below. The airshow will be continuing in Melbourne over this weekend.

Around the world, heavy snow and deep freezes stayed in the headlines this week, and supplied us with striking photos from a tragic avalanche in Afghanistan to a scary pileup on a Maine highway. Around the world people celebrated various festivals, including the colorful Holi festival in India, and the Hadaka Matsuri -- or "Naked Festival" -- in Japan.

Click through the slideshow above to see photos from those stories and more, and be sure to check back next weekend for our selection of the best photos from the next 7 days.
