Photo by @PaulNicklen // The aurora borealis illuminates the dark Yukon sky as this small glowing cabin brings warmth to a chilly Arctic night. This vibrant dance of lights across the sky can seem otherworldly, and some Inuit groups believe that the mysterious lights are the spirits of animals that had been hunted by them. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for more photos from the #Arctic. #Yukon #NorthernLights #nature #photography


For the past five years, artist Parth Kothekar (@parthkothekar) has hand-carved creations, each from a single sheet of paper. It takes him about three weeks to sketch 20 to 30 designs. Then, Parth, 27, selects his 10 favorite ones and starts cutting away. Each papercut can take up to an entire week to complete, down to the last detail.
Although Parth’s intricate masterpieces might seem frail, the women they depict are anything but. “I was brought up seeing the struggle of my mother,” he says. “That’s why I always create female characters. I wanted to show them as powerful and strong through my artwork.” See how these intricate papercuts are made, today on our story.

Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown | A storm sweeps over the ancient site of Samaria-Sebaste, located in the village of Sebastia, just northwest of the city of Nablus, West Bank. The ruins include remains from six successive cultures dating back more than 10,000 years, including the Canaanite, Israelite, Hellenistic, Herodian, Roman and Byzantine.

“A view from my belay stance 30 meters away from the top of Mount Brewster (2,515 meters). My climbing buddy Piotr, now safe on top, savored his achievement before building an anchor to belay me up to join him,” writes #YourShhotPhotographer Peter Laurenson. “Our view was unfortunately short lived. Not only after I reached the summit, the clouds engulfed us in a white out. New Zealand is as dramatic as the landscape — the perfect place for adventure.”

“From #YourShotPhotographer Rose Ungvari: ‘When I view your image, I feel like I am there in your shoes, my heart pounding away with fear mixed with excitement and awe. I ask myself... will I be able to make this risky final stretch to the summit? It looks so dangerous and narrow, one wrong step. Wow, I really admire you for accomplishing this breathtaking feat of reaching the summit to be with your friend right before the white out conditions arrived.’” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y.
