It was night when Hanan and her family boarded the boat. "I was scared,” Hanan, who is 15, and grew up in Iraq, told me. "All I saw was water.” Hanan had never seen an ocean before -- and now was one of 50 other refugees whom crammed together onto a rubber boat. As it pushed out to sea and the waves started to rise, water started to rush in. "I didn't know how to swim," Hanan said. "I thought we would drown.” A year later, now in Germany, Hanan stands at the edge of a pool, getting ready to jump in the water for the first time. She is amongst a handful of other refugees learning to swim as a way of overcoming their fear of water and the journey they made.

“The foundation and early creation of a human tower in Catalonia. Every year in Spain, a Catalan tradition of building castells — a human tower reaching up to 10 stories — takes place in the town of Vilafranca del Penedès,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Eduardo Soler. “This image was photographed during the annual festivities in honor of Saint Felix, the town’s patron saint.”

“I love how my eye moves to the foundation of this castell. By shooting at a little higher perspective, you are revealing the huge crowd watching, and participating in these festivities. I feel the energy, the anticipation, the excitement as the human tower will continue to grow higher. And great decision to present this frame in black and white, I love it. Well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

A flexible schedule = lots of world travel for freelance designer Renee Lusano (@wrenees), who visits far-flung places like Greece, Hungary and Haiti with her drone. To document her travels, Renee creates drone selfies: “First, it shows a somewhat mundane photo of myself, and then as the drone flies up, it reveals that I’m in some expansive and incredibly beautiful place. Soon, you don’t even see me — it becomes not about the selfie, but about the scale of the environment I’m in.”

No wonder that haul-out rocks are covered in Steller sea lions, otters cling to abundant kelp, and it is common to see the white heads of bald eagles speckling the treetops.
