photo by @andrea_frazzetta // San Blas Islands. The archipelago of San Blas consists of hundreds of small islands. Approximately 365 islands and cays, of which only 49 are inhabited. They lie off the north coast of the Isthmus of Panama, east of the Panama Canal.
A part of the comarca (district) Guna Yala along the Caribbean coast and home to the Guna Indians.
San Blas and its surrounding area is a haven for ecotourists because of its pristine environs.

@benhortonphoto - nighttime is my favorite time to shoot in the desert, a day late can make it look flat and Brown, and all of the colors and most of the life emerges after the sun has set. Go to @benhortonphoto to see how this photo was taken

Photo by @FransLanting Eyes full of innocence light up the face of this elephant seal pup which is less than two months old. Yet it’s already been weaned by its mother, who nourished it for a month with milk that is one of the highest in fat content of any animal on earth, and now it’s languishing on the shores of South Georgia before it takes a plunge into the cold waters of the Southern Ocean. Elephant seals dive deeper than almost any other marine mammal; some of them go farther down than 7000 feet. It takes more than big eyes to survive down there. Watch out, young seal! Follow me @FransLanting for more stories about seals and other wonders from South Georgia, the island at the end of the world.

I hope this image explains why I’m in love with the night sky! Crystal clear sky on the edge of the Grand Canyon. @natgeocreative @natgeo @grandcanyonnps #grandcanyon #arizona #utah #astrophotography #nightsky

Iceberg alley in #Antarctica ! Beautiful and disturbing all at the same time. Here, icebergs come to die. As ice-shelves in Antarctica break up, apartment building-sized icebergs get trapped on the ocean floor near the Lemaire Channel. Within weeks, these monoliths will return to their original liquid state. #followme on @paulnicklen to see my favorite images from this dreamscape. Thanks for the fancy flying @pattersonimages #itsuckstocare #instagood #photooftheday #sunset #nature #naturelovers #ice

Spend enough time exploring the Cascades and if you're lucky, you'll find yourself walking above the clouds.
