Photo by @stephen_matera | Wind blown sand across Great Sand Dunes National Park at sunset, Colorado. The area receives only 11 inches of precipitation each year and was measured to be the quietest of the U.S. National Parks in the contiguous 48 states. The park also contains the Sangre de Cristo Mountains with six peaks over 13,000 feet. Sand temperatures can reach a blistering 140 degrees Fahrenheit during hot summer days and dunes are up to 750 feet high. Follow me @stephen_matera to see a video of the sand blowing and for more images like this from the Colorado and around the world.

Sponsored by @ExploreCanada // There's a man in Canada who is one of the only people on the planet who's learned to walk with polar bears. Following their tracks onto the ice would be a huge risk without him. See more of Canada's wildlife in @bertiegregory’s new online series “Wild_Life: The Big Freeze” available on National Geographic YouTube and at

Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz.| A rare aerial view of Beni Isguen, the exquisitely preserved medieval city in the Algerian Sahara. The pious non-Arabic Muslim inhabitants don’t allow photography inside the fortified city walls, and visitors have to wander the narrow footpaths with a local to insure that rule is respected. The rooftops are walled off to ensure privacy while sleeping outside in the cool night air. The triangular feature on the left is the town market. To view more of our world from above, follow @geosteinmetz.

Photo by @daisygilardini | I have been enjoying aerial photography immensely lately, as invariably it gives me a surprising new perspective. I’m always stunned how things look different from above! In this image, the bearded seals helps give a sense of place and scale to the design of the broken pack ice. Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and stories behind the scenes.

Photo by @mborowick | Sometimes you have to fly to the top of mountains to find those beautiful craters that just so happen to have incredible natural wonders. Like this scene here, at the top of a mountain in Thorsmork, in Southern Iceland.

Photo by Drew Rush @drewtrush | The Beartooth Highway is considered by many to be one of the most scenic drives in North America. The road climbs to an elevation of almost 11,000 feet (3,352 meters) and the views from the top are amazing. Have you been? Please follow along with me, photographer @drewtrush, to see more images of wildlife places.

Photo by @amivitale | The sun sets in Montana's Centennial Valley. The valley is an important wildlife corridor for elk, moose, antelope, deer, wolverines, grizzly bears, wolves, and hundreds of bird species. The people who ranch here are careful to preserve the land for the wildlife that depend on it. Follow @amivitale for more photos of this incredible world. @thephotosociety @natgeoimagecollection

Photo by @Chrisburkard | Every once in a while the planet does something extra special that reminds you just how beautiful this world is. This evening in New Zealand was one of those nights. Even just looking back at this photo makes me feel a deep appreciation for the place we call home. It may not be Earth Day, World Oceans Day, etc., but here’s a sometimes much needed daily reminder of how incredible the planet is. A reminder to treat it well and also to explore it, both equally important in today’s world.

Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | South Africa, a “family” of Giraffes in the central region of the Kruger Park. The giraffe is the tallest terrestrial mammal in the world. The males stand about 5m tall - as high as a single-story house - and the females are just a little shorter. Giraffes are gentle and timid animals and live in loose social groups. The Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of 7,523 sq miles in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in northeastern South Africa.

Photo by @taylorglenn | Last light at Blacktail Ponds Overlook as an evening storm clears in Grand Teton National Park. There is something so incredibly magical about the quality of light that occurs just as the sun is about to set behind the mountain range. The shadows of the peaks and the glow of the low angled sunlight creates the most beautiful depth and glow across the landscape. It's the kind of light we photographers dream about. To see more of this incredible landscape follow @taylorglenn

Photo by @babaktafreshi.| I'm in Washington DC for the 50th anniversary of moon landing. This impressive life-size projection of Apollo 11 Saturn V rocket appears on the east face of Washington Monument in DC. The project and film screening continues to July 20, each night at 9:30-11:30. Photographed on assignment for @natgeo. The projection is organized by @airandspacemuseum partnered with @usinterior and 59 Productions.
