Photo by @daisygilardini | Being in the right place at the right time is key when on assignment in remote locations. A sailboat is an incredible platform for photography in Antarctica’s frozen waters, even if sometimes it’s not the most comfortable and stable means of transportation — especially if you suffer from seasickness. The flexibility of cruising among icebergs in shallow water, and the lower angle one gets when close to the water, are simply brilliant. Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and stories behind the scenes.
Photos by @jessicasample | Record rainfall has caused another rare “super bloom” of wildflowers across Southern California. In addition to the vibrant orange California poppies you can see mustard and chia flowers among others. Visit during the week to avoid crowds and always be respectful of nature by not stepping on the flowers. #superbloom#lakeelsinore#walkercanyon
Video by Matthew Borowick @mborowick | Sigöldugljufur canyon is one of those gems many visitors miss when they travel to Iceland. It’s hiding in plain sight, just off the road to Landmannalaugar in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve. It will require a 4x4 vehicle to make it there, but if you do manage it, the view is an incredible slice of magic in an already unbelievable landscape. #iceland#drone#waterfall#nature#travel
Photo by @jimmychin.| Sometimes finding the shot is harder than getting the shot... (Find the heli for scale.) Getting everyone in position on this shoot was another good story and another good image... Purcell Mountains, British Columbia. For more mountain adventures around the world, follow @jimmychin.
Photo by @acacia.johnson | Sunset illuminates the frozen seascape outside the navigational bridge of an expedition ship in Svalbard. This arctic island archipelago, about halfway between Norway and the North Pole, is a haven for arctic wildlife that relies on a healthy sea ice ecosystem. Within the past decade, the sea ice on the west coast of the archipelago has begun to melt as early as March, a full two months earlier than historic standards. While this is bad news for the ecosystem, it means that the region can now be navigated by ship in the ethereal light of early spring, opening opportunities for exploration and photography that were never before possible. Follow me at @acacia.johnson for more photos from Svalbard and beyond. #Svalbard#seaice#expedition
Photo by @MartinEdstrom | Yurts, caravans and Russian Lada cars spot the arid landscape of the Tien Shan mountain range. The wind whips about your clothing, but during short moments of stillness you can always hear a horse close by. They run free here. These plains, in remote Kyrgyzstan, are home to but a few nomads that divide their year between grazing horses in these mountainous valleys during summer and then coming back to the city to spend the winter. Follow @MartinEdstrom for more stories from remote Kyrgyzstan. #kyrgyzstan#centralasia#tianshan#natgeoimagecollection@natgeoimagecollection
Photo by @Sofia_Jaramillo5 | A photo taken near Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve in Idaho. The preserve is home to about 618 square miles of volcanic formations and lava flows in south central Idaho. It's one of my favorite places to drive by as there is an ocean of lava rock as far as the eye can see.
