photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Flying over the stunning Lofoten Islands, Norway. The Lofoten Islands are draped across the turbulent waters of the Norwegian Sea, far above the Arctic Circle. This rare wilderness outpost offers an untrammeled landscape of majestic mountains, deep fjords, seabird colonies, and long, wave-swept beaches.

Photo by @taylorglenn // Blowing sand obscures the highway outside Swakopmund, Namibia during a massive sandstorm. Driving was basically impossible. When the winds pick up on the Atlantic Ocean it doesn’t take much to lift the desert into the air. Follow @taylorglenn for more imagery from around the globe. #namibia#travel#weather#desert
Photo by @kevinfaingnaert // The Ngo Dong river winding through Tam Coc’s karst formations in #Vietnam. Translated as ‘three caves’, Tam Coc is often referred to as "Halong Bay on Land” due to its incredibly scenic landscape which is similar to the infamous Halong Bay and the rice paddies surrounding it.
Photo by @renan_ozturk // Yaks on the the long road home from Everest basecamp. The lulling sound of their bells, the fresh snow fall and the lack of trekkers in this moment is what makes this simple phone photo special to me. And the fact that our film set out to tell the story of the highest point on Earth purely from the indigenous Sherpa perspective. Follow @renan_ozturk for more from the roof of the world
Video by @bertiegregory // In an incredible rare predatory event, an Antarctic fur seal hunts macaroni penguins on land on the Island of South Georgia in the South Atlantic Ocean. This was hard to watch but I felt it was an important part of the macaroni penguins’ life story. Giant waves, razor sharp rocks, mountain climbs and these seals (usually hunting the penguin in the water) are just a handful of the challenges these penguins must overcome on a daily basis. Only the toughest individuals survive to pass on their genes to the next generation. Brutal as this encounter was, there was an unexpected twist, watch the whole series of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island to find out what happened at natgeo.com/wildlife.

Photo by @kiliiiyuyan // A snow-covered basketball court in the Yup’ik village of Gambell, Alaska. Basketball is a major sport for indigenous peoples of North America, even on the sparsely populated and remote island of Saint Lawrence, in the middle of the Bering Sea. Follow me, @kiliiiyuyan, for more images of the Arctic and beyond. #arctic#alaska#basketball#winter#snow#indigenous
Photo by @Shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // Night falls upon base camp and an international team of explorers and scientists working to understand the mechanics of the Gorner glacier in Switzerland. On the skyline in the distance the iconic Matterhorn looms large. Such a special place.
Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz Kingdom Centre, Riyadh, Saudia Arabia. This 99-story landmark apartment tower was completed in 2002, and is a symbol of modern Saudi Arabia.

Photo by @kengeiger./ If #Africa and beautiful sunsets are on your travel bucket list. Don't wait to check out the Maasai Mara area of #kenya. Besides the national reserve, there are numerous conservancy areas, tribal lands that have been combined to benifit wildlife and the local communities.
