Photo: @ChrisBurkard The name of this waterfall is very literal; Havasupai, the people of the blue-green waters. The natives who live in the area share its name and consider the ancient calcium and magnesium rich water sacred. Grand Canyon, Arizona.

Photo by @TimLaman. A sea fan adorns a dock piling in Bali with swarms of fish behind. Just a few years after construction, this jetty has essentially become an artificial reef teaming with marine life. Indonesia has the world’s greatest marine biodiversity.

Impetious young impala go head-to-head as they practice sparring. A talent they will need later in life when the rut begins. Photographed on assignment for @natgeotravel in Kruger National Park. For more images from Kruger, South Africa, follow @kengeiger #natgeotravel #krugernationalpark

Photo by @christopheviseux // The Cirque de Mafate on La Réunion Island. This impressive landscape is a caldera, which is the result of the collapse of an old volcano. Entirely enclosed by mountains, the Cirque was settled in by slaves in the 19th century. It is very remote and only accessible by foot or helicopter. A paradise for hiking. Follow me @christopheviseux for more images from the Indian Ocean and Africa. #reunion #volcano

Photo by @FransLanting The annual gathering of king penguins on the beaches of South Georgia Island is one of the most phenomenal wildlife spectacles on the planet. It is an overwhelming sensation to spend time among them and they are a confirmation of the abundance of the Southern Ocean on which they depend. Fisheries around South Georgia are well-regulated, but beyond the territorial limits of the island, a lot of work remains to be done to safeguard a future for king penguins and all other wildlife dependent on the frigid seas surrounding Antarctica. Follow me @FransLanting for more stories and images from the Southern Ocean. @natgeo @natgeocreative @ThePhotoSociety #Antarctica #SouthGeorgia #Penguins #KingPenguins #Southern Ocean

video by @babaktafreshi, The World at Night. Find out when & where in the world to see #aurora, in my new story "7 Magical Places to View Auroras" on @natgeo travel website (nationalgeographic.com/travel/top-10/7-aurora-destinations). From #Iceland to #Alaska, #Canada, #Lapland (#Finland #Sweden #Norway) #Greenland, and chasing aurora australis in #Tasmania & #NewZealand. The fisheye #timelapse video here is from March 2015 showing wild stormy #northernlights above Iceland. The first time I filmed an aurora was on an icebreaker near Antarctica in 2003. Luckily, there are much more accessible places if you’d like to take in these light shows yourself! @natgeocreative #astronomy #astrotourism #auroraborealis #arctic

The Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland is one of the largest in Europe. Looking down into these crevasses you can see hundreds of feet into the ice. - @benhortonphoto - watch the instagram story today to follow our adventures!

What did you see on your morning drive? It's my last morning in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Intending to make the most of it, I was at the gate when it opened at 5:30am. Not ten minutes down the road, literally walking down the middle of the road, were these three gorgeous guys. What a great way to end an assignment for @natgeotravel.

Photo: @ChrisBurkard When I saw this river formed by glacial melt in New Zealand it reminded me of similar rivers in Iceland. It’s striking to see the similarities between the northern and southern hemispheres as you near each pole. Before drones and planes, all we had was our imagination of these places.

photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Maldives, Faafu Atoll. The photos I didn't shoot: A coffe mug on the windowsill, the sheetmetal rooftops in the background and farther down the harbor’s boats. A shoelace tied between two plastic chairs outside on the balcony. A pair of underwear tied to it. The last match in that fetish-box taken from a Cairo hotel, two years ago by now. The used up, crusty and muddy sneakers, after the game played while the storm was punching away at the small island. The blisters under my feet, the mosquito bites. The plate of noodle from the Lagoon Hotel, with the sunny side up egg over it. It looked gross but it was good. The tip of the boat barely visible in the Indian Ocean night. The fly that came in and it definitely is not going out the same way… The stare you meet by chance on the other side of the road. Everything I don’t shoot are part of the journey. An album of faded memories is all that remains of the thousands of things we do, of the days we live. What are we made up of? Of wind of insurrection, of solid memories… And that happiness, the simple kind, that sometimes falls down from the sky above the sea. @andrea_frazzetta @instituteartist #Maldives #happiness #natgeotravel #sea #ocean #blue
