Video by Matthieu Paley @paleyphoto | Heavy smog veils the downtown area of Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar. From the United States and Germany to India and China, air pollution cuts short an estimated seven million lives globally every year, according to the World Health Organization. In winter, coal stoves and power plants regularly choke Ulaanbaatar with smoke—and lung disease. The smell is acrid and inescapable. This winter authorities closed the capital’s schools for two full months, from mid-December to mid-February, in a desperate attempt to shield children from the toxic air. It’s unclear how effective that measure is. On bad days, handheld pollution monitors max out, as readings soar dozens of times beyond recommended limits. Levels of the tiniest and most dangerous airborne particles, known as PM2.5, once hit 133 times the World Health Organization’s suggested maximum.

“This is from inside of my Mini Camper, a Renault Kangoo that I modified to be able to travel and photograph around the world, while having the advantage of being able to sleep and wake up wherever you want with the view you want,” writes #YourShotPhotographer André Farinha. This photo was submitted to our “My Home” assignment. To participate in our current assignments—and for your chance to be featured on @natgeoyourshot—go to the link in our profile.

“You guys are clearly on board a great adventure! So many of my friends have done exactly the same as you André. Only when you get to fall asleep and wake up in the wilderness like this can you truly appreciate nature. I love the light, colour, and composition here. I feel like I am right there with you both. Great shot.” — @natgeo photographer Robbie Shone (@shonephoto)


#FotoDelDía | Poco después de una nevada, la fotógrafa de @natgeoyourshot tuvo la oportunidad de fotografiar las Horsetail Falls en el Parque Nacional de Yosemite. "Cada año, durante unos días en febrero, el sol se pone en un ángulo determinado e ilumina la cascada en colores naranja y rojo luminiscentes, lo que hace que se vea como lava fundida".


Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio I The Bavarian Forest National Park (German: National Park Bayerischer Wald) is a national park in the Eastern Bavarian Forest on Germany's border with the Czech Republic. Founded in 1970 as the first national park in Germany, since its expansion in 1997 it now covers an area of 24,250 hectares. Together with the neighbouring Czech Bohemian Forest, the Bavarian Forest forms the largest contiguous area of woodland in Central Europe.

On planet Earth, a heart can be made with pure sunlight. 💖 For 23-year-old photographer Amatou (@amatou_0429), capturing this epic reflection in Japan was no accident. “It can only be seen in the early morning for a short period during a certain time of year,” he says. Furthermore, the clouds, wind and humidity all have to cooperate to get this one just right.

Happy earth day - here’s some favorite images of our planet in all her glory. I’ve been lucky enough to travel frequently for work and while I always feel a pang of guilt about flying so often, I hope that these images inspire you in some way to think twice about generating that extra trash or buying something you don’t need. We only have one planet, let’s try our best to be mindful of our impact and to lessen that where we can. Small steps can lead to big changes #earthday


I often tell people that the best time to visit Yosemite National Park is in late April and early May. The snowmelt means the waterfalls are at full power, and the summer tourist season hast started, so the crowds aren’t huge.

Yosemite is unquestionably one of America’s greatest national parks, but to really experience it you have to find a time when the crowds are minimal.
