natgeo Photo by @dina_litovsky | A flurry of visitors pose for photographs inside Istanbul’s 17th-century Blue Mosque. Known for its 20,000-plus glossy blue tiles, stained glass windows, massive domes, and mother-of-pearl inlays, the opulent mosque was designed by architect and poet Sedefkâr Mehmed Ağa.

natgeo Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | Dallol is a volcanic spring in the Afar Depression of Ethiopia, some 150 feet below sea level. Hyperacidic water precipitates sulphur, which starts out white and gray before turning yellow and then orange as it oxidizes. It’s part of a rift zone that is slowly separating East Africa, and a rare opportunity to see tectonic activity that is usually at the bottom of the ocean. Walking out there feels like a stroll on Planet Ethiopia. To explore more of our world, follow @geosteinmetz.

natgeo Photo by Erika Larsen @erikalarsen888 // Sponsored by @chipotle // Michael Mardesen of Iowa is a veterinarian and hog farmer for A-Frame Acres, an all-natural, sustainable hog farm that has been in his family for five generations. “My whole life I wanted to be a farmer. It’s what my dad did, what my grandpa did,” Michael says. Running a small farm and having enough revenue to feed every mouth is very difficult these days. Becoming a veterinarian enabled Michael to stay in rural Iowa and continue working with his farm and the ag community. His family’s farm works with Niman Ranch, the largest farmer and rancher network in the Western Hemisphere, to be 100 percent third-party-certified under the Certified Humane®️ program. Niman Ranch’s 740 small, independent, U.S. family farmers and ranchers adhere to some of the strictest animal welfare protocols in the industry and have been in a long partnership with Chipotle. Michael says he loves that Chipotle “puts their money where their mouth is in helping aid the young farmers.” // Real food needs real farms. Real farms need real help. Learn more about how @chipotle is cultivating the future of farming by helping young farmers in the U.S.

natgeo Photos by Corey Arnold @arni_coraldo | A few years back, I was invited by wildlife biologist Wes Larson to follow his team as they studied the behavior of black bears, in order to help mitigate potential conflicts between bears and humans in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. But on this day, I was not prepared to come face-to-face with a 350-pound bear waking from hibernation 70 feet deep into a mysterious and claustrophobic sandstone tunnel. You can find my account of the story and how it all ended in the December issue of the magazine in “Through the Lens: Don’t Wake the Bear,” or click the link in my bio @arni_coraldo to read the story online. Flip through the carousel to see outtakes from the scene. In other news, tomorrow I’m heading to Chicago, where I'll spend a couple weeks photographing urban coyotes for an upcoming feature in the magazine. While I am partnering with local coyote experts, I would very much welcome any tips from Chicagoans in locating real-time and consistent sightings of coyotes in the city's most urban settings. Specifically, I’m looking for behavior that is happening now and not in the past, as coyotes normally have quite an extended range of territory. If you find me poking around your backyard at dawn with a huge lens, please say hello! You can reach me via direct message on my personal account only at @arni_coraldo. I will do my best to respond to any useful tips, and I hugely appreciate your help with this little citizen science call out. #natgeo #bear #hibernation #blackbear #wildlifebiology
natgeo Video by @paulnicklen | This is perhaps the most beautiful thing I have ever seen underwater, filmed on expedition with @SeaLegacy last year. The veil that separates the ocean from the air is as thin as a dream, and to swim with sperm whales is to feel as though you've fallen into one. These gentle leviathans have thrived in complex family units off the Dominican coast for generations, probably for millions of years. Sperm whales hold the record for largest predator, largest brain, and loudest animal on earth—capable of making noise louder than a rock concert! Scientists have only just begun to understand these massive marine mammals. Follow me @PaulNicklen for more videos that showcase the beauty of the natural world and for updates from my next trip to the Dominica to swim with the sperm whales. #Whales #Science #Ocean #TurningTheTide

natgeo Photo by @babaktafreshi | A few weeks ago on the shoreline near Christchurch, on the South Island of New Zealand, the Milky Way’s galactic core was sinking to the ocean as I was warming my hands by a bonfire left by fishermen. The brightest point reflecting on the water is Jupiter, set against a dark nebula known as the Pipe, which also forms a celestial Kiwi, the national bird. The little red cloud in the galactic band is Lagoon Nebula, 4,100 light years away. Organized by the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand, I traveled around the country for a dozen public talks on photography and the values of preserving the natural night environment of our planet.

natgeo Photo by @williamodaniels | Russia, 2015. This is the train station in Tynda, a rare Siberian town and main hub of the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) railway line, which traverses Siberia and the Russian Far East. Its population, originally mainly from the west of the U.S.S.R. (Belarus and Ukraine, over 3,000 miles away), decreased significantly since the collapse of the Soviet Union. I traveled twice on the BAM line on assignment for the magazine in 2013, but I was so struck by this place that I decided to get back on my own two years later, to visit other parts of the line. Follow me on @williamodaniels for more human stories around the world.
natgeo Video by @lucalocatelliphoto | In a lava field in Iceland, this sci-fi looking landscape is home to a high-tech greenhouse that produces barley for cosmetics. Despite the arid landscape, the greenhouse uses geothermal heat and energy and water from a volcanic source below ground. Iceland is one of the most nature-oriented countries in the world, and with scarce resources, new solutions like this greenhouse are developed to try to make more with less. I’ve always been passionate about the relationship among people, technology, and the environment. Sometimes, like in this case, reality goes beyond my imagination. My work as a photographer revolves around exploring this transitional time, where resource management is of paramount importance for humanity. Follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to see more stories on our environment and the solutions we are adopting for a more sustainable living. #iceland #greenhouse #transition #sustainability #lucalocatelliphoto

natgeo Photo by @katieorlinsky | A young girl perches on the bones of a bowhead whale at the site of the annual whaling feast in the Inupiat village of Point Hope, Alaska. Point Hope is the longest continually inhabited community in North America. For the people there, nothing is more important than the bowhead whale.

natgeo Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio and Klaus Thymann I With climate change standing as one of the most pressing issues facing our future, photography is increasingly used as a catalyst to instigate change. Last year I visited Switzerland with Klaus Thymann of @projectpressure to photograph the Rhône Glacier, which is disappearing at an alarming rate. There is a small shop that carves an ice grotto into the glacier and charges tourists to experience the interior of the blue ice, so it has been worth their money to attempt to slow the glacier’s retreat. They have invested heavily in a special thermal blanket that has kept about 25 meters (82 feet, in depth) of ice from disappearing, keeping the grotto intact. However, after a few harsh winters on the mountain, the blanket is starting to disintegrate. And unfortunately the method is not scaleable: we cannot do this to all the world’s ice; the gesture is as forlorn and doomed as the glacier itself. So with heavy lament, this glacier, which has existed for millennia, will disappear within the lifetime of children born today.
