Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Sunset over the Valles Caldera near Los Alamos, New Mexico. The Valles Caldera is one of the most studied super volcanoes in the world. It is a massive 13.7 miles wide and the floor of the caldera is covered with hot springs, fumaroles, natural gas seeps, volcanic domes and rolling grasslands. A small stream also bisects the caldera offering incredible fly fishing. Science estimates that this volcano might have risen as high as 35,000 feet at one point. #supervolcano #vallescaldera #vallescalderanationalpreserve #newmexico #losalamos

📸 @johnkernickphotography For me, one of the many privileges of photographing on location, especially for a magazine like National Geographic Traveler is the access to places and the interesting people I get to meet and talk to. There is never a dull moment. I met Siobhan while photographing a story for Traveler, such an interesting woman and having photographed Stonehenge a number of times, a photo, quite different from ones I'd taken before. .

Video by @tobyharriman // Sometimes the best part of life is confronting a "why?" and then doing it just to see what becomes of it. That was this day, when my buddy @Kyle_kochan and I decided to fly out to Inner Lake George and the Knik Glacier area. Apparently a while back, someone left a green canoe, life jacket and paddles (only one left) around the lake for anyone to use (which I have to say is a very Alaskan thing to do). We found it, and made something special of the experience. It has definitely gone through some damage and duct tape repair, so paddle at your own risk if you ever make it out there!

Photo by @andywcoleman // Monument Valley is on the Navajo Reservation on the border of Arizona and Utah. This is a view of Totem Pole and Yei Bi Chei, two of the iconic formations in the area. This tall spire monument is an example of what erosion does to a butte. The best way to see this area is with one of the Navajo tours as they will make sure get to places you can't get on your own and will also know how to find some of the best vantage points.

Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto // An uninhabited island in the Marshall Islands chain of the South Pacific seen through my porthole. Most of the 1,000 or so Marshall Islands, spread out over 29 narrow coral atolls are less than six feet above sea level and a few are more than a mile wide. Living on these narrow strips of land, the Marshallese are expert fishermen and navigators, having long been reliant on the sea. @natgeocreative #marshallislands #simplybeautiful

A few might guess this hidden paradise is in the Middle East. The 85-meter high Shevi waterfall is in Zagros Mountains, Khuzestan province of Iran. A day hike takes you from the train station to this little known wonder. Iran, a mountainous country, surprises visitors who are unfamiliar with the diverse geography of the region, from rugged mountains topped by an 18000 ft high massive volcano to dense Alborz forests and vast deserts, all packed between the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf.

Photo @andy_mann // The sperm whale is the largest toothed predator on Earth, rich in lore and history. I had hoped to photograph this gentle giant on a recent marine expedition to the Azores, a Portuguese archipelago made up of nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. After an exhausting afternoon working in rough seas with poor visibility, I finally slipped in and drifted with the current into a large pod of calves socializing on the surface. Within minutes, several large adults rose from the depths and circled me. Moments later they effortlessly disappeared back into the deep. #followme @andy_mann to see more amazing seascapes from the Azores.

Photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Sunset over the Amazon Forest, Iquitos, Perú. The Peruvian Amazon comprises 60% of the country and is marked by a large degree of biodiversity. Perú has the second-largest portion of the Amazon rainforest after the Brazilian Amazon. Rain forests play an invaluable role in sustaining life, but every year, large portions of them are cut down for logging, mining, and cattle ranches.
