As you can see from Great Dane Elliott’s (@mygiantadventures) face, dogs can have the time of their lives anywhere, even on a long car ride home. “The #WHPjoyful theme was one I was really drawn to because every single moment in life can contain joy if you choose to see it,” says Elliott’s human Mandy Helwege, who lives in Denver. “I love being able to bring joy to others through photos of my dogs.”
Follow along as we feature more of our favorite submissions to last weekend’s hashtag project, #WHPjoyful.


Photo by Cory Richards @coryrichards // #sponsored by @IncredibleIndia // Wandering through the overgrowth that is slowly devouring the ruins of Ross Island is a haunting experience. Empty corridors of memories consumed by time and roots fall silent aside from the crack of dried palm leaves under the hooves of the deer that roam free. It’s difficult to imagine the outpost alive as nature seeks to reclaim its own territory. Ross Island is a small island with just under two miles of coastline. But for such a small island, it has a big history. From the mid-19th century, it served as the residential headquarters for the British administration of the Andamans and the penal colony located there. Rocked by an earthquake in 1941, Ross remained under British control until 1942 when the Japanese took control of the Andamans at the height of WWII. After the war, the island was returned, but largely abandoned. Today, the island offers a park-like setting for visitors from nearby Port Blair. // From mountain tops to seacoasts, India is filled with breathtaking landscapes, amazing wildlife, and untamed experiences you’ll never forget. Plan your adventure of a lifetime now in #UntamedIndia.

Golden Reflection | Photograph by Jassen Todorov (@jassensf)
“This aerial image, taken from a plane at sunset, features Discovery Bay, California, a waterfront community built on a network of man-made dikes surrounded by freshwater, except for the southeast quadrant, which comprises of the Discovery Bay Country Club golf course,” writes #YourShotPhotorapher Jassen Todorov. “Some homes have private docks with access to the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta." This photo was selected for the December 14, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

“I always love your aerial moments, but this one is one of my favorites because of the magical reflections that change throughout the frame. The punch of warmth from the clouds has an awesome contrast to the neutral tones on the neighborhoods. Simply lovely!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
