Moonset | Photograph by Koustav Maity
“This image was taken during the rare celestial trifecta (super-blue-blood moon) in 2018. We decided to watch the moon setting over the Pacific as there was a prediction for clear skies. As the partially eclipsed moon was setting over the Pacific, the seascape turned into a blue and pink canvas, reflecting light from the far east,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Koustav Maity. “This is a favorite of mine since luckily, I also got an early rise watching the setting moon from the pier in the frame. Superfecta moment!”

"The moon has always been a source of poetic inspiration for man. Here it takes a particular dimension by the rarity of the phenomenon. The 'Super Blue Blood Moon' will not happen again until 2037. The colors, the size of the moon in perspective with the small human silhouette at the end of the pontoon make it a picture full of sweetness. Thank you for having captured this moment with so much poetry." — #YourShotPhotographer Marc Henauer (@marc_henauer)

Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | The Colorado River Delta was once one of the richest estuaries in North America, but due to human use hardly any water now crosses the Mexican border. This has turned the fertile delta into a sterile sandy plain raked by 30-foot tides. I was a little nervous flying out there in my paraglider at low tide; if my motor went on strike, I would have had a hard time walking out before the tide came back in.

Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz | A rare aerial view of Beni Isguen, the exquisitely preserved medieval city in the Algerian Sahara. The pious non-Arabic Muslim inhabitants don’t allow photography inside the fortified city walls, and visitors have to wander the narrow footpaths with a local escort to insure that rule is respected. The rooftops are walled off to ensure privacy while sleeping outside in the cool night air. The triangular feature on the left is the town market.

This is one of my favorite photos. I took it in one of the carved stone churches in Lalibela, Ethiopia. The man was a Coptic priest who was walking out of the church to answer his phone. I have this photo printed and it is on the wall just above my computer as I type this. Lalibela is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most culturally significant places in Ethiopia.
I mention this because I’m pretty sure this will be one of the worst performing photos I’ve ever posted to Instagram. I’ve posted photos of people in the past, they they always bomb. They don’t get engagement. People just want to see mountains, rainbows, waterfalls, and sunsets.
This is one of the many reasons why I have come to dislike Instagram. I have many people who have called me a landscape photographer based on what they see on my Instagram feed. To be sure, I do landscape photography, but I also do a lot more. I just never post it on Instagram because the audience there doesn’t seem to like it.
I haven’t posted anything to Instagram for almost a month now. Mainly, I’ve gotten tired of trying to optimize the time I post, how often I post, the type of image I post, and everything else surrounding the platform.
Instagram used to be fun. Now it seems to have been taken over by the “influencers” which are really nothing more than models who use places as a backdrop for showing off their sundress or their abs. I’m not so much annoyed by the people who post that stuff as I am by the public who seems to be more infatuated by the reality show lifestyle than they are learning about the world we live in.
From here on out, my plan is to totally tank my Instagram account by publishing some of my favorite photos, and telling the stories behind the image and place it was taken. It is sad that such an approach is probably the road to ruin, but fuck it.
Maybe I can’t change the world, but I can try to reach those people who are more curious about the world around them than they are about wanna be reality TV stars.
Who’s with me?

Stairway to Heaven | Photograph by Mike Kane
“I love the negative space in this location,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Mike Kane. “I framed the lone figure within the leading lines as a human element to add scale and a hint of mystery. Who is he? Where is he coming from? Where is he going to?”

“There’s not too much to say. You simply have to stop and look at this photo. The background is just soft enough that it could be the sky, and the stairs lead straight up to it. The composition is so pleasant and straightforward. The stairs enter and leave the frames just at the corner, the man has begun his journey but still has a bit of walking to do through the frame. The way the light changes across the stairs makes me curious about the rest of the space. What’s so funny to me about this photograph is it is probably extremely direct, a staircase in a museum, possibly, that leads to the next exhibit, but when I look at it, I can’t help but think deep and dream big.” — @natgetravel Producer Marie McGrory (@mariemcg23)
