Photo by @mborowick | Sometimes you have to fly to the top of mountains to find those beautiful craters that just so happen to have incredible natural wonders. Like this scene here, at the top of a mountain in Thorsmork, in Southern Iceland. #iceland #thorsmork #ice #cessna #explore

[ #TBT From July 18, 2016 ] Top Shot: Art in Nature | Photograph by Hidehiro Otake (@hidehirootake)
“The Athabasca Sand Dunes are one of the most northerly active sand dunes in the world, estimated to be approximately 8,000 years old. The William River flows through the western section of the dunes carrying the sand for over thousands of years, which creates the brush pattern on the bottom,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Hidehiro Otake. “I flew over the river by bush plane and tried to get this image of its ever-changing art of nature.” This photo was selected for the Daily Dozen on July 15, 2016.

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.

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)
