Photo by @FransLanting The annual gathering of king penguins on the beaches of South Georgia Island in the Antarctic is one of the most phenomenal bird spectacles on the planet. It is an overwhelming sensation to be among them and it is a confirmation of the abundance of the Southern Ocean on which these birds depend. Fisheries around South Georgia are well-regulated, but beyond the territorial limits of the island, a lot of work remains to be done to safeguard a future for king penguins and all other wildlife dependent on the frigid seas surrounding Antarctica. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more images and stories from the Southern Ocean.  @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #Antarctica #SouthGeorgia #Penguins #KingPenguins #SouthernOcean #Conservation

Photograph by @paulnicklen // I have been fortunate enough to see a lot of rainbows while spending so much time out in nature, however this one at the Bonzai Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii was perhaps the brightest and most delineated one I have ever seen.  I saw this while standing with @zaknoyle and @cristinamittermeier, waiting for a surfing competition to start. #followme on @paulnicklen  #surf #surfing #hawaii #rainbow #pipe #pipeline #bonzaipipeline #smile #adventure #travel  #instagood #tbt

The World at Night project
In a clear evening of southwest Switzerland, the New Moon is photographed above the historic Cathedral of Notre Dame in Lausanne. One of the values that led me to create The World at Night project (twanight.org) over 10 years ago is universality of the night sky, above all symbols of our cultures and beliefs. This eternal roof brings us together as a single family of humanity in one home. on that evening the same new moon was appreciated by Buddhists, Hindus, Moslems, Jews, and all other 4200 public religions.

The wonder of the lights quickly turned into a soggy rainy night camped on the melting edge of Europe’s largest glacier. These days there is always some sobering reality of climate change built into every trip to the north. ~

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // How do you like to travel?  In the Amazon, where I photographed this sunset along the shores of the mighty Xingú River, people carve canoes with fire and ax from the trunks of massive trees.  In the absence of roads, most travel is done on the river.  When the canoes are not being used, they half-sink them to prevent air from rotting the wood.  For more images of beautiful Amazonia, #follow @CristinaMittermeier  #reflections #river #brasil

Photo by @jeffmauritzen. Words by Justin Kavanagh. “This intriguing avenue of 18th century beech trees, known as the #DarkHedges, is now legendary among watchers of HBO’s #GameofThrones, a story set in medieval times. Ireland’s landscapes, like its people, adapt well, and are constantly being reinvented as another time, another place. In ancient times Ireland’s stories were told by saints and scholars, who left a rich legacy of myths and mysteries; in recent times, filmmakers and digital storytellers have used the island’s dramatic landscapes and dreamscapes to forge new narratives that now attract travelers from far and wide.” For more images of scenic #Ireland, please follow @jeffmauritzen.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Yesterday was epic in so many ways. It was my first day on a jet ski with giant waves at Peahi, a.k.a. JAWS, on the north shore of Maui. In the early morning fifty-plus foot wave faces were rolling in on a regular basis. The waves were so big and were moving so fast that very few surfers could even catch them save for a few tow in surfers. I shot 5,331 images all told and it will be a while before I even get through all of them but until then here is one gem of a wave that rolled by right as the sun came up yesterday. What is hard to get across with this image is that a sizable house could fit into the curl of this wave. It was huge! #peahi #jaws #bigwavesurfing #emptywaves #maui

Photo @Chrisburkard. It can be a pretty rare sight, but during the fall and winter season you can catch Morro Bay with clear skies and glassy waters. Morro Rock is an icon in Central California that has always been my home and one of the reasons I have been drawn to stay there. This structure in specific attracts many because of its size, and thousands of years ago was used as a guide for the first Spanish explorers. Morro Rock is one of nine such formations in the San Luis Obispo area, known as the “nine sisters.” Morro Rock, considered a volcanic plug, was formed due to extreme build-up of pressure of volatile-charged magma. Viewing certain structures from the air will give you the grander scale of the earth’s formation.
