Photo by @stephenwilkes: Day To Night, Grand Canyon National Park.
While other images from my Day to Night series have proven to be quite challenging, this image was made even more complicated by sheer logistics. How would I create an image that showed one of the most photographed places in the world in a completely unique way? My goal was to create an image that showed the majesty and vastness of the Grand Canyon, incorporating a human scale and narrative within the scene. I photographed from the top of the Desert View Watchtower at the South Rim - in the late summer so that I could capture the summer storms - where my team and I worked for 27 hours scanning this amazing vista for all the unique moments from Day to Night. The long hours paid off and I was able to capture a single bolt of lightning just before the storm retreated into the canyon.

Photo by @FransLanting “Rebirth” I share this in celebration of Earth Day. New forests of coastal redwoods are growing tall again close to where I live in Santa Cruz, California. They were nearly wiped out in the 19th century when forests were clearcut for the construction boom in San Francisco. California’s oldest state park was established in 1902 in the Santa Cruz Mountains to save the last giants. To create this image, I used hidden strobes to illuminate a cathedral of majestic redwood trees. To learn more about my creative techniques for plant photography, watch my video @FransLanting.

Photo by @michaelmelford It's still Earth Day as far as I'm concerned! Witnessing retreating glaciers on a year by year basis is a bit alarming to me so let's continue to do what we can to love the earth and take care of our home. Retreating 100 meters per year, Glacier Grey at Largo Grey, Torres del Paine National Park reveals these rocks not seen before for thousands of years. Go and take the boat cruise to see for yourself. #photography #climatechange #patagonia #nature #glacier #chile

Because every day should be #earthday...
Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Place) in Venice during the seasonal flooding called Acqua Alta (high water). That iconic square is the lowest place in Venice, and becomes deceptively beautiful when flooded. Acqua Alta is caused by when seasonal rain, astronomical tides and strong winds combine to interfere with the water outflow from the lagoon. The first record of this phenomenon was in the year 782 and it has been documented ever since, with the record level in 1966 of 6.4 feet. Human activity has accelerated natural causes: subsidence (natural sinking of soil level) and rising sea levels. Taken on assignment for @natgeo on “Vanishing Venice.” For more images of the world and its people, follow me @jodicobbphoto. #earthday #Venice

Two Years ago the Yemeni crisis took a deadly turn. According to the United Nations, 16,200 people have been killed in Yemen since 2015 including 10,000 civilians. The humanitarian situation in what was already one of the world’s poorest nations, is now, after Syria, the most critical on the planet, with 20% of Yemenis severely food insecure.

Here photographed the village of Al Hajjarayn in Wadi Daw'an, the ancestral home of the Bin Laden family.

#earthday #savetheplanet Photo by @edkashi/@viiphoto. Alaskan mountains stand near #Fairbanks, #Alaska on August 2, 2015. In villages around Alaska, winter is arriving later than usual and rushing into spring. The rising ocean temperatures are decreasing the offshore ice and slush that have acted as a storm buffer for the villages in the past. Last winter had no offshore ice at all. Alaskans are debating relocation and have the big storms to consider. According to Robert E. Jensen, a research hydraulic engineer at the Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center, storms on Alaska’s west coast can carry the force of a Category 1 hurricane, but the diameter can be up to 10x greater, affecting a larger area and lasting longer. #everydayclimatechange #ECC #actonclimate #climatechangeisreal

Cubs will stay then stay with their mothers until they're around 2 years old. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures! #earthday
