Photo @pedromcbride// Grateful for the wild places: This narrow strait off the coast of Antarctica’s Graham Land is called “Kodak Alley” for its striking vistas and occasional placid waters. The climate here, however,is anything but calm.Average temperatures are changing rapidly creating shrinking sea ice challenges for many species like Adele penguins and krill, the tiny shrimp-like crustaceans that sustain the marine food chain.

Photograph by @thomaspeschakThe best camera/lens combination is the one you are holding in your hands! I was walking through coastal forest on the tiny Seychelles island of Cousine when a white term began to hover inches from my face and tried to land on my head. Unfortunately I was on my way to go diving, inaddition to wearing a wetsuit and clutching my fins in my teeth I was holding my heavy/bulky underwater camera setup. With no other option than use the gear in my hands, I raised my underwater rig to my eye, framed as best i could and hit the shutter.I think this certainly the only terrestrial photograph that I have ever shot for @natgeomagazine with my underwater camera. @natgeocreative#seychelles#seabirds
Photo by @renan_ozturkMonster and Washer Woman towers within what seems like infinite layers of @canyonlandsnpsgeology. I remember climbing them both in the same day when I was young and wide-eyed about the adventure of the climbing life. On the summits I added a few drawings in the registers which are rich with history and culture. Just recently I went back and snapped this photo with @chrisburkard.I have to say that my excitement and appreciation for this place has only grown. @snackfarmer@tidesinourveins@taylorfreesolo#protectbearsears
Video by @paulnicklen// What does it mean when a 50 foot-long whale weighing 60,000 pounds hurls itself out of the ocean over and over? I shot this on #8kin slow motion as I wanted the moment to last forever while studying every detail. More importantly, we must control ship traffic in critical migratory and feeding corridors of these noise sensitive leviathans. Follow me at @paulnicklento see more. Shot on assignment for @sea_legacy#shotonredwith @reddigitalcinema#nature#beauty#whale#breach#naturelovers

Photo by @stephenwilkes. Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, enjoying quality time with family and friends. I wanted to share some of my favorite moments of my “Day to Night” Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. In this “loup view” of the photograph you’ll notice that time is changing as the parade unfolds, seeing the giant balloons as they arrive, bringing smiles to the families everywhere. The fun part in creating these photographs is finding the hidden moments that make this image so special. My favorite was discovering a family enjoying Thanksgiving dinner on the Night side of the photograph! Enjoy and Happy Holiday!

Video by @bertiegregory.Extreme climber Alejo Sanchez descends down an enormous rock face deep in the heart of the unexplored Chiribiquete National Park, Colombia. When he reached the bottom of this cliff, he made a remarkable discovery. He found a massive panel of ancient paintings featuring jaguars, people and more. This area is home to many of these paintings, representing some of the earliest evidence of humans in the Amazon. I shot this whilst accompanying a team from Fundacion Herencia, an incredible group of people doing real 21st century exploration. It’s very humbling to know that there are still places on this planet we know almost nothing about. But despite it’s remoteness, it is still under threat.We owe a huge thanks to Parks Colombia and the Colombian Ministry of Culture for their support. For more on this place, Stay tuned for @stevewinterphoto‘s upcoming jaguar story for @natgeoMagazine. Also stayed tuned for our jaguar TV show for @natgeowildpremiering in the US on December 10th.

Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetzLobster entrée for 830 people is prepared at the biggest wedding facility in China. The meal consisted of 13 courses, and all of them contained meat or seafood.Protein consumption has increased rapidly in China due to higher income and more food options.This has turned the country into the world’s largest importer of food, to feed all of the pigs, chickens, ducks and cows.If the rest of the world consumes as much protein per person as we do in the United States, our planet will be in serious trouble.To learn more about the global food supply, follow @feedtheplanet#food4thought
