The High Uintas (named after the Uintaat tribe) is a mountain range that contains the highest peak in Utah, countless lakes, exposed colorful quartzite rocks and a unique ecosystem making up the largest alpine area in the Intermountain West. Elk, mule dear, moose, mountain goat, coyote, black bear, bighorn sheep, ptarmigan, river otter, pine martin, cougar and 75% of Utah’s bird species roam this land. Experiencing it in person the last few nights left me in deep appreciation for this designated wilderness area! Follow @renan_ozturk for more images of this majestic landscape.

Octopus Drying in the Sun | Photograph by Feray Umut
.
“This is the Greek island of Samos; mathematician Pythagoras was born here,” says #YourShotPhotographer Feray Umut. “Octopus, which dries in the sun to be served in restaurants, has been a popular dish in Greece for thousands of years, and has been a menu staple in the country.”

“This image has haunted me in the most beautiful way since I first say it. I love what [Your Shot photographer] Brenda Snape said, ‘The light, the beach scene and the octopus… they meld together yet could be separate images all on their own.’ While they could absolutely be images on their own, this frame in its entirety feels unsettling and beautiful all at once, and that tension is what I love so much about it. Beautifully seen, Feray!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

Photo by @taylorglenn // An aerial view of the sand dunes near Panamint Springs in Death Valley National Park. Seeing this landscape from above gives a much better perspective of the forces at play. Even though it is quite dry, from time to time there is precipitation, and as the water falls and runs downhill it creates these incredible channels and alluvial fans.

#FotoDelDía | El sol sale en la Avenida de los Baobabs en Morondava, Madagascar, donde más de 200 de los majestuosos árboles crecen a lo largo de una milla y media de carretera. En las cabañas residen artesanos locales que fabrican recuerdos de madera para vender a los turistas que visitan este popular destino.

#followmeto the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt with @natalyosmann. Still no one has been able to properly explain what the true purpose of this ancient structure was, or how was it built. Did you know that this pyramid has eight sides? The centres of the four sides are slightly indented. This phenomenon is only detectable at dawn and sunset on the spring and autumn equinoxes. It is also believed that the three Pyramids of the Giza Plateau mimic the constellation of Orion, or at least used to. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
What other mysteries about the pyramids do you know?

#Следуйзамной к комплексу пирамид в Гизе.
До сих пор никто не может правильно объяснить, какова истинная цель этой древней структуры, или как она была построена. Знаете ли вы, что эта пирамида имеет восемь сторон? Центры четырех сторон слегка отклонены. Это явление обнаруживается только на рассвете и на закате весеннего и осеннего равноденствий. Считается также, что три пирамиды Плато Гизы имитируют созвездие Ориона. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
Какие тайны пирамид знаете вы?
