Photo by @jonathan_irish / Time at home between assignments, for me, is about catching up...not just on life and relationships but also photo editing. I have a long list of assignments that I need to go back through and make sure I didn’t miss any great shots, as I usually don’t have time while on the road to do this deeper dive. And I always find some gems in there...like this beautiful iceberg in Antarctica. This iceberg is huge...about 20 stories tall...and that’s just the tip of the (proverbial and literal) iceberg. I could never get tired of seeing the beautiful and various formations of ice...it’s one of the things that continues to draw me to these remote polar regions. I have a bit of an ice obsession. Follow me @jonathan_irish for more images like this and around the world.

Photo by @FransLanting Sunday, April 22, is Earth Day—a moment to be grateful for everything the Earth does for us. Without forests exhaling oxygen and water our lives would wither fast. With every breath we take we inhale a bit of our living planet. We are all connected; let’s make every day Earth Day. Follow us @ChristineEckstrom and @FransLanting to learn more about our living planet. @ThePhotoSociety @world_wildlife @conservationorg #EarthDay #EarthDayEveryDay #Gratitude #Forests

My first look at New Zealand on our flight into Queenstown. I’ve never seen such vivid intersection between mountains and water anywhere on the planet. Stay tuned to @renan_ozturk @taylorfreesolo as we explore the South Island this week 🇳🇿

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Shiprock (Navajo: Tsé Bitʼaʼí, "rock with wings" or "winged rock" ) is a monadnock rising nearly 1,583 feet (482.5 m) above the high-desert plain of the Navajo Nation in San Juan County, New Mexico, United States. Its peak elevation is 7,177 feet (2,187.5 m) above sea level. It lies about 10.75 miles (17.30 km) southwest of the town of Shiprock, which is named for the peak. #shiprock #newmexico

Photo by @jonathan_irish / Happy International Dark Sky week! While we should celebrate the clear night skies all year, I’m happy that there’s a week dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of clear skies and reducing light pollution. Can you imagine what the world was like before the invention of electric light in the late 19th century? EVERY place in the world would have been designated an international dark sky location. Imagine walking out of your door, looking up and seeing billions of stars every night? Now, we have to seek out these dark places to gaze into the universe. Remember to turn off outside lights often (or put them on timers)...it not only saves energy costs but also keeps the skies clearer of light pollution. I love photographing at night...astrophotography is so fun. I was incredibly lucky to visit some places where the brilliant stars shine clearly on our road trip through the national parks...like the one pictured here: Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.

Photograph by @paulnicklen while on assignment for @natgeo in Hawaii. @cristinamittermeier dives under a large crashing wave in #Makaha, Oahu, Hawaii. The Hawaiians of Makaha took us under their wings and taught us about their deep connection to the sea. We were debutants and we found ourselves in situations that we would never have thought possible prior to their guidance. Brian Keaulana was teaching us about three and four wave hold downs just prior to this big surf day. We were taught to stay near the bottom, avoiding the foamy white water until we could see solid water before swimming to the surface. After experiencing this, I now have so much respect for big wave surfers. #gratitude #hawaii #freediving #surf #surfing #gratitude #aloha

Bathers float effortlessly in the hyper-saline waters of the Dead Sea near Ein Bokek. Due to extreme evaporation and the diversion of all its tributaries, the water here is almost 10x saltier than sea water, and more dense than a human body.

Photo by @jeffmauritzen. View of Delicate Arch at sunset. While easily the most recognizable arch in the park, did you know that it’s just one of over 2000 stone arches found within Arches National Park? Insider tip: to avoid the busy crowds and desert heat, consider a visit during the winter months. For more photo tips from Utah and beyond, please connect with me @jeffmauritzen.
