Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | Savannah Cummins climbing the super classic route Scarface (5.11) on the Scarface Wall in Indian Creek, Utah. For this image, we had another climber up on the wall with a big, battery-powered strobe (i.e. a big flash) to light up the climber at sunset. This route has been photographed tens of thousands of times, but something different can always be done to show it in a new light—quite literally here. #indiancreek #scarface #utah

Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | For me, reality has always been more interesting than imagination. When a Brazilian friend told me to check out Lençois Maranhenses, I couldn’t believe what I saw on Google Earth. What I found when I launched my glider there was beyond anything that even Dr. Seuss could dream. Oh the places you’ll go! To explore more of our world from above, follow me, @geosteinmetz. #notadrone

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | Sunrise on Walter Peak above Lake  Wakatipu and Queenstown, New Zealand. While staying with some friends in Queenstown, I happened to look out the window and snapped to attention when I saw this vista. Clouds below the tops of mountains never seems to get old. Queenstown and the surrounding area is a mountain paradise. #mtwalter #queenstown #newzealand

Photo by @hoffmanbrendan | Southwestern Ukraine, along the border with Romania, is home to a rugged section of the Carpathian Mountains known as the Marmarosy Alps. Once located on the Soviet frontier, access was restricted for decades, and one still requires permission from the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine to hike here. The rewards, however, are stunning views and a lack of crowds even in peak summer months. Our group pitched camp here along the trail and rode out several afternoon rain showers and a storm that dumped enough hail to have a snowball fight, but as the fog wafted over the peaks and the sun set, we were treated to a spectacular show. #ukraine #carpathians #mountains #sunset #nature

Photo by @BabakTafreshi | With billions of stars that host planets in our galaxy, there are endless possibilities of other worlds habitable to some sort of life. This singe-exposure photograph of Mono Lake looking at a little island of tufa was taken far from light pollution in California. These limestone towers are formed by the precipitation of carbonate minerals in water. Mono Lake has no outlet, so the trapped salt made the lake very alkaline and salty. But the lake has an unusually productive ecosystem, including a strange bacteria that has been deeply analyzed by astrobiologists studying the possibility of life in other worlds with extreme conditions.

Photo by @Chrisburkard | Chasing surf has taken me to places around the globe that I never could have imagined when I first began taking photos. High on the top of this list of unexpected locations are the remote parts of the Pacific Northwest—specifically Alaska. The Aleutians are comprised of a string of 167 islands that span the gap between Alaska and Russia. They’re about as remote as it gets. The few locals who live there can trace their history back 8,000 years. They rely on hunting and fishing for food and graciously offered me an oily slab of seal blubber to eat soon after my arrival (which would have been rude to turn down). Many nights were spent around a fire or table learning about their ancestors and the traditions of their community. By day, we spent our time searching for breaks via ATVs, often taking treacherous trails to hidden bays. With a topographic map and some help from a native Aleut hunter, we scored some of the best cold water barrels I have ever seen to this day.

Photo by @DaisyGilardini | Weddell seals feed mainly on fish, squid, and other invertebrates like krill. They are extraordinary divers. They can reach 600 meters in depth and spend more than an hour underwater. Weddell seals are the most southerly breeding mammal in the world and can be found from to Sub-Antarctic Islands to the Ross Sea.
I simply love their cat-like faces and the beautiful patterns of their grey coats. These seals usually come on land or lay on ice to rest and digest, so it is not very easy to photograph them as they are very passive when outside the water. The occasional yawn, however, makes for great grimaces and funny portraits.

Photo by Aaron Huey @argonautphoto | Looking up at the sky through Zebra slots, shot on assignment in Southern Utah. The slot canyons of Escalante National Monument tell a tale of time, in waves of red sandstone, like no other. Follow  me, @argonautphoto, for both video and stills from these slots and other public lands.

I briefly got distracted by yummy looking noodles and when I looked behind me, I had lost my friend. Follow me, @hannahreyesmorales, for more stories on Asia and beyond. #Taiwan #Food #Raohe

Photo by @DaisyGilardini | Split-shots are not easy to achieve in cold water. Most of the time, you photograph blind by holding your gear on the side of the Zodiac. Usually you end up shooting hundreds of images and getting only a few that are fine. I achieved this image by using an underwater case with a dome port and a 16-35mm wide angle lens.
