Photo by @coryrichards | Mount Everest is both a travel destination as much as it’s a proving ground for serious alpinists. Seen here is my lone yellow tent mid-frame while my partner and I acclimatized on Everest’s nearby mountain, Island Peak. Traveling mountaineers can be seen along side the deep crevasse to their right. Dangers like these are present for the traveler and the seasoned alpinists alike.
#followme @coryrichards to see real-time footage of Himalayan #travel #culture and #mountains as I am attempting to #climb new route on the North East face of #everest.

Photo by @DaisyGilardini | King penguins commute every morning from the colony to the beach, like diligent workers commuting to work in the big cities. They then jump into the sea to fish for the day. I was fortunate to spend a full week in the Falkland Islands (Malvinas)  in late October, following them. Rain or shine, I was there at the beach witnessing  the parade and trying to capture the elegance of these gentle creatures in the morning light. Follow me @DaisyGilardini for more images and stories behind the scenes. #penguin #kingpenguin #falklandislands #conservation

Photo by @PaulNicklen | As the setting sun touched the horizon, a humpback whale graciously lifted its fluke before disappearing into the icy depths to feed. Once at an alarming risk of extinction from excessive hunting, humpback whale populations have made a remarkable comeback. Their recovery was showcased on this night in Antarctica, as we witnessed hundreds of humpbacks gorging on krill; a species which sustains almost all life in the area. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen and explore my feed for more photos from #Antarctica. #humpback #whale #ocean #nature

Photo by @acacia.johnson | Wearing a waterproof sealskin parka, a kayaker prepares to demonstrate an underwater roll in Sisimiut, West Greenland. These impressive maneuvers mimic the challenging situations that Inuit hunters once found themselves in, such as needing to right their kayak one-handed or with one hand attached to a harpoon line. Today, these rolls have been integrated into competition sports. Follow me at @acacia.johnson for more stories from the Arctic and beyond. #greenland #kayak #arctic

Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | A horse-drawn carriage in the streets of the Palazzo Reale district (also known as Albergheria), the historic center of Palermo, Italy. The Romans, Arabs, and Normans all left their mark on the picturesque Sicilian capital, where boisterous back streets and open-air markets collide to create a joyous sense of anarchy.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | A drone image looking straight down at Waiāhole Beach Park on the east shore of Oahu near Waikane. Drones have revolutionized photography on some level. We now have relatively inexpensive tools to get wild and crazy perspectives, though with that ease comes huge responsibility. Know your limits and know where you can fly and where you can't. #hawaii #waiaholebeach #oahu
