“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)

Video by @wrenees
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.”
IGTV is a new app and a new space within Instagram for watching long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators. To watch IGTV, update your app now, then look for the new icon in the top right corner of feed. Check out our channel to experience Renee’s drone selfies.

Patricia, 2016
In the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo, Patricia, 22, was raped and left to die in the bush. A woman found her, cared for her and sent Patricia to safety in Nairobi, Kenya. Patricia came to the U.S. alone in October 2015, with no knowledge of the fate of her family. Having been given the opportunity for a future of safety and hope, Patricia intends to build a life that honors those who have not been as fortunate. She hopes to become a voice for women who continue to suffer, as well as those who have died.

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.
