Barbecue overlooking Yport, Seine-Maritime, France by @simoncroberts, from the series Normandy. These landscape photographs are an attempt to reveal a territory conceived of as a vast human landscape. “Beware, O voyager, the road travels as well,” Rainer Maria Rilke wrote. A landscape, far from being a frozen reality, is experience and interaction, a negotiated interface between the environment and the person who peoples it with his or her footsteps and emotions. The famous white cliffs that dominate Normandy (and particularly its Seine-Maritime department) are what makes the region so popular and so iconic.

Photo by @FransLanting Iguazu Falls is one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world. It straddles the border of Brazil and Argentina and attracts millions of visitors from all over the world. Yet this magnificent expression of wild water on an epic scale is vulnerable to the effects of climate change. A few years ago a severe drought impacted the two rivers that feed Iguazu Falls so dramatically that the thundering falls were reduced to  trickles for months. The water did rebound when rain returned to the region upstream, but it is sobering to realize that even the most powerful phenomena in nature are affected by our collective impact on the planet. Follow me @FransLanting for more images and stories about our changing earth.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier, working in the newly-protected Lancaster Sound Marine Conservation Area. A polar bear rolls around in the snow to dry its fur off after a swim.  Watching this bear rolling around, I was amazed by the size of its paws. Larger than dinner plates, they are designed to travel over snow and ice. Polar bears are so well insulated they must release excess heat through areas where fur is absent or blood vessels are close to the skin, like muzzle, nose, ears, and those black footpads. *

Photo @ladzinski / If walking a #highline across Jackson Hole's infamous #CorbetsCouloir wasn't enough, @alexmason decided to do it during the moment of #totality. During the 100 seconds of the #totalEclipse it became so dark that you could faintly see stars, meaning that Alex was walking the line more by feel then by sight! Photographing it was a real challenge for me, I wanted the picture to tell the story by giving a sense of place and exposure to what Alex was doing. The ambient light changes remarkably fast during the eclipse and I was making a lot of decisions on the fly. To read more about how I made the photo please see the write up at National Geographic:

Video by @joelsartore | A juvenile muskrat photographed at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota (@wrcmn).
Although baby muskrats are capable of swimming at quite a young age, sometimes mothers will push their young out early if she’s getting ready to have a second litter. This young muskrat was found by a concerned citizen as it struggled in the reeds, unable to swim.
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota is one of the busiest and oldest wildlife hospitals in the nation; it is estimated that 13,000+ animals will be treated there this year alone, representing more than 180 different wild species. The amazing side of their story? They’re entirely funded by donations and every single patient is brought in by someone who cares. This rehab center solely exists because Minnesotans are so interested in wildlife and go to great lengths to help animals in need.

With no access to Bangladesh’s health facilities, Rohingya women with a malnourished baby wait to be seen by medical professionals who work for international non-profits. 
The Rohingya, a muslim minority considered one of the most persecuted in the world, has fled repression in Myanmar for generations. Earlier this year I was in Bangladesh for National Geographic Magazine when about 75,000 Rohingya refugees crossed the border to escape a crackdown launched by the Myanmar security forces after nine policemen were killed in an attack believed to have been carried out by Rohingya militants. But Bangladesh, already poor and overpopulated, shows no enthusiasm for hosting them. Half a million undocumented Rohingya live in the country with no right or access to employment, education, or basic health care. The full story was posted today on nationalgeographic.com. The print version will be published in the October issue.

A 12ft wide oceanic manta ray comes blasting out of the blue with an entourage of baitfish. Last July I was lucky enough to swim with these incredible creatures as they aggregated off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula, Mexico. The baitfish use the manta's enormous body as a shield from aerial predators, allowing them to feed safely near the surface. Shot for @natgeo and @stevewinterphoto.

On the lookout! Meerkats are great at working together in numbers. A few will typically serve as lookouts, watching the skies for birds of prey, such as hawks and eagles that can snatch them from the ground. 
Please go to @mattiasklumofficial to meet some meerkats enjoying last rays of sun! A sharp, shrill call is the signal for all to take cover in burrows or bolt holes. While a few individuals guard the group, the rest forage for the foods that make up their varied diet. Meerkats will eat insects, lizards, eggs, birds, and fruit. When hunting small game, they work together and communicate with purring sounds. Meerkats are very efficient and entrepreneurial  hunters and delightful to study in the field. This extremely nosy individual only inches away.

At Reteti, half-gallon-size bottles of special formula are given every three hours around the clock. The twelve elephants currently being cared for at Reteti were rescued from the nearby area around the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. Though they come in frightened and vulnerable, the incredible staff here helps them thrive in hopes of returning them to the wild herds.

@RobertClarkphoto While on an assignment for @nature_Org I photographed clouds before a rain storm in Ogallala Nebraska. The unquie #cloud formation is called, #Mammatus meaning "mammary cloud". They are a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud, typically #cumulonimbus rain clouds. The name mammatus is derived from the Latin mamma  breast. 
According to the WMO International Cloud Atlas, mamma is a cloud supplementary feature rather than a genus, species or variety of cloud. They are formed by cold air sinking down to form the pockets contrary to the puffs of clouds rising through the convection of warm air.

Unfortunately, this little gazelle is dragged down to a watery gave by a massive demon of the deep, Africa's Nile crocodile.

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio on assignment for an upcoming story for @natgeo ... The dome above the Edicule in the Church of the Holy Sepuchre, Jerusalem.
The church contains, according to traditions dating back to at least the fourth century, the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, at a place known as "Calvary" or "Golgotha", and Jesus's empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected. The tomb is enclosed by the 18th-century shrine, called the Edicule. The Status Quo, a 250-year old understanding between religious communities, applies to the site.

Looking out into the valley we saw streetlights come on in the west. I felt different, odd, changed. And then, very quickly day went back to being day.

'Le Havre beach, Upper Normandy, France' by @simoncroberts. The city Le Havre is one of Europe's major ports and the largest container port in France. Here holiday makers populate the vast pebble beach whilst a container ship approaches the port on the English Channel, a gateway between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. The name Le Havre means "the harbour", but despite its industrial importance, the city became popular as a resort in the early 20th century with the establishment of baths and a broad promenade frequented by Parisian tourists.

Photograph by @babaktafreshi | While I was flying 45000 ft high, on the edge of stratosphere off the coast of Oregon to capture the first glimpse of 2017 totality, my ground-based cameras were remotely active, waiting to capture the eclipse above the iconic Smith Rock State Park in central Oregon. #eclipse2017

photo by @chamiltonjames / Charlie Hamilton James - family and friends watch as the solar eclipse almost reaches totality just south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming this morning. The experience was incredible - as the moon moved across the path of the sun the light began to drop and with it the temperature. At totality the sky was almost dark and there was a distinct chill. From all around on the hilltops and in the valleys people were cheering. It was all over in around 2 minutes but for the hundreds of thousands of people that have travelled across the world and throughout the US i’m sure it was well worth the journey. #eclipse #eclipse2017

Photograph by @babaktafreshi | This photo is one of the first glimpses of #eclipse2017 captured by National Geographic photographer Babak Tafreshi in a jet above the Pacific at the moment the eclipse began. Babak is aboard the flight along with two @Airbnb guests who won the chance to be among the first to witness the solar eclipse before it crosses the US.

Photograph by @thomaspeschak A tourist gets the once in a lifetime chance to pet a curious gray whale in San Ignacio Lagoon, Baja California. This is one of the few places in the world where whales seek out contact with people. A cultural trait passed down from mother to calf for over 40 years, it is the whales who initiate and controls these encounters. #followme @thomaspeschak for more photos of these unique whale human interactions. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for the September 2017 story Ocean Stewards with @erikvance  @maresmexicanos #mexico #Baja #love #nature #ocean #whale

At San Ignacio Lagoon

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio on assignment for an upcoming story for @natgeo ... Franciscan monks watch from their chapel in the Rotunda, looking down on the ceremonies around the Edicule of the Church of the Holy Sepuchre, Jerusalem.
The church contains, according to traditions dating back to at least the fourth century, the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, at a place known as "Calvary" or "Golgotha", and Jesus's empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected. The tomb is enclosed by the 18th-century shrine, called the Edicule. The Status Quo, a 250-year old understanding between religious communities, applies to the site.

Celebrations held to mark the opening of the Edicule after months of restoration work. All the various communities that have an interest in the Church were in attendance in all their finery.

Photo by @jenniferhayesig A mushroom shaped iceberg glistens in the sun drenched sea off Ilulissat Western Greenland. The name of the town literally means "iceberg" in Kalaallisut (a dialect of Greenlandic language). This iceberg was born in the the Ilulissat  Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site  and one of the most active glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere. Greenland's icecap contains +10% of the worlds freshwater supply and is melting at unprecedented pace as temperatures continue to rise.  Icebergs are temporary sculptures in the sea, I photographed this formation last week and as I swam away to photograph a tabular berg the mushroom shaped iceberg broke up and vanished.
