Photo by @FransLanting // There are waterfalls…and then there is Iguacu. You can get close to dozens of thundering waterfalls like these from the Brazilian side, like shown here or from Argentina, but either way it’s one of the wonders of the world. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more encounters with beauty. @thephotosociety #Brazil #Iguaçu #Iguazú #Waterfall #Beauty #Naturelovers #Wonder

Photo: @andy_mann // Of all the ways to say “hello”, I generally prefer this one.  Intimate wildlife encounters are both exhilarating and immeasurably difficult to get. A little luck goes a long way. During a 2017 climbing expedition to Greenland, we encountered a curious polar bear from our zodiac boat. As it approached, I dunked my camera-housing in the frigid water as it took a dive, swam under our boat and away into the ice forever. And in the end, luck would have it . // #followme @andy_mann for more unforgettable wildlife encounters from this amazing planet.

Photo by @gerdludwig. A view of the eastern ridges of the Smoky Mountains from Clingman's Dome; located on the state line of North Carolina and Tennessee at an elevation of 6643 feet, it  is the highest point on the Appalachian Trail. 
In 1930, Great Smoky Mountains National Park became one of the largest protected areas of the eastern United States. It encompasses roughly 525,000 acres of lush landscapes (more tree species than in all of northern Europe), abundant wildlife (65 mammal and 230 bird species), and spectacular scenic beauty.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // When photographing in the Salish Sea, I sometimes find it hard to stay focused on one subject because there is so much life happening. Home to some of the most beautiful cold water reefs on the planet, this ecosystem provides abundant habitat for species that include orcas, humpback whales, stellar sea lions and giant Pacific octopuses. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier and explore my feed for more #underwaterphotography. #SalishSea #biodiversity #nature #photography

Documenting new ways to live in cities and how we could live in the future is the central part of my work. I’ve embarked on a journey with @natgeo to showcase how London, one of the world’s busiest and fastest growing cities, is evolving. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was built for the 2012 Summer Olympics and since then many people visit it every day. During summertime it becomes an outdoor heaven for families, a real oasis in the middle of East London’s busy and heavily built streets. Follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to find out more about the London story I covered for @natgeo

Video by @bertiegregory // Wandering albatross take part in what has to be once of the most incredible courtship displays in the animal kingdom. Bill vibrating, bill fencing, sky calling and posturing with their enormous 11ft wingspan is all part of the ritual. These albatross take great care in selecting a partner as the bond they form can last the rest of their lives. We had the great honour of filming this spectacle with the British Antarctic Survey. This incredible organisation has been studying the wanderers on Bird Island for over six decades! Follow @bertiegregory for more or watch the whole Wild_Life series at natgeo.com/wildlife

The World at Night (TWAN) project
It was a beautiful lunar eclipse last night in the Americas, and in the morning in Europe and Africa. Swipe left for the totality view, a single exposure photograph through a 600mm telephoto (the first image is with a teleconverter). Here in the northeastern US the winter storm Harper left with crystal clear skies in late evening but at bone-chilling temperature. The wind chill near Boston during totality hit -30F. My expedition winter clothing were failing, not in Antarctica but in our own backyard! 
The next lunar eclipse will be a partial on July 19 visible from South America, Africa, Europe, Middle East, India. The next total one is on 2021 May 26 from Americas, Australia and Asia.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Juan Aguada ( @juan_aguada ), Richie Graham ( @richiegrahamphoto ), and Stefan Blawath traversing a section of the Patagonia Ice Field called the Cordon Marconi near El Chalten, Argentina. This was a long day—or at least it felt like a long day getting down to the Cerro Torre basecamp on the western side of Cerro Torre. Luckily we had clear skies and relatively gentle winds. When Cerro Torre came into view it was a spectacular sight and I’ll never forget camping under the Torre group. #cerrotorre #patagonicecap #patagonia
