Silhouette | Photograph by Piotrek Deska (@piotrek_deska)
“Las Ventanas del Mascun sector in Rodellar is famous for its great rock arches, where you can climb on crazy roof formations like this one,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Piotrek Deska. “When you’re on the lip of this roof, about 100 meters above the Mascun River, it is an unforgettable experience.”

“This image makes me so nervous and I’m just staring at it from my office desk! Excellent use of a silhouette and a great adventure image. I am always in awe of seeing images of climbers taking great risk to get to the next level.” — @natgeoyour Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)


Photo by @chamiltonjames. Text by @chrisfagan_uac | Worn footpaths and a clean garden of manioc and papaya hint at the recent use of this village by an isolated tribe near Peru’s remote Alto Purús National Park. This border area between Peru and Brazil is home to perhaps the largest number of people living in isolation on earth. But despite its remoteness their lives are being threatened. A different tribe recently contacted nearby, told of a horrific massacre by men with automatic weapons; most likely narcos who use the area to move coca to Brazil. This photo was taken at a safe distance and only after we were certain nobody was at home. The tribe who live in the village are semi-nomadic and known to leave for weeks at a time to collect turtle eggs and other resources closer to major rivers. Shot for the Peru part of our October issue on the Amazon’s isolated tribes. Check out the link in @chrisfagan_uac profile for more information on isolated tribes in the area.


Photo by @FransLanting When ice gets compressed at the bottom of a glacier or ice field it becomes blue. The older the ice, the bluer it gets. By that measure the iceberg I encountered in Antarctica’s Weddell Sea one day was ancient ice that had calved off from the continent’s edge under the influence of global warming. It was the size of a cathedral, but without that gathering of chinstrap penguins on its flanks it would be hard to get a sense of its size. This image is part of a portfolio of my work that is now on display at London’s Natural History Museum today where I received the great honor last night of a Lifetime Achievement Award from @nhm_wpy, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Follow me @fransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more images and stories from a lifetime of chronicling our changing planet.

Next in my series of under visited places is Sukhothai! 🇹🇭🇹🇭🇹🇭
Sukhothai is the former imperial capital of the Sukhothai Empire. The ruins of the capital can be found in the historical park of the same name just outside of the modern city of Sukhothai.
Sukhothai is located approximately halfway between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Despite being situated between two of the most popular destinations in Thailand, Sukhothai gets very few visitors in comparison. Most people either fly or take a train, which skips Sukhothai entirely.
It is really too bad because Sukhothai is an amazing place. I’ve often described it as a smaller, cleaner version of Angkor, Cambodia. There are almost 200 ruins spread over 70 square kilometers. There are very few visitors to the park and you can stroll about the grounds historical park is which only a few square kilometers.
The park has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is one of the most significant historical sites in Thailand. It think it is a superior visit to Ayutthaya which is usually crowded with visitors on day trips from Bangkok.
When I visited I pretty much had the park to myself. You can walk amongst the temple ruins or you can rent a bike. They have paved paths that you can ride on.
The easiest way to get to Sukhothai is either by bus or train, from Bangkok or Chiang Mai. I recommend people stop here if they are going between the two cities as it is one place in the country which should not be missed.

Looking at this it's hard to believe that this is only a 15 square meter space. It’s full adaptable design concepts to make life easier in a very small amount of space, swing and all! #MINI #MINILiving #BigLifeSmallFootprint #UrbanCabinTour #GlobalVillage #Advertisement
