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.
Follow along as we share more of our favorite submissions to last weekend’s hashtag project, #WHPplanetearth

Photos by Tim Laman @timlaman | Birds of paradise have a reason to celebrate this year on Earth Day: the Province of West Papua, where 16 of the 40 birds of paradise are found, has declared its commitment to set aside 70% of the land as protected forest! Swipe to see four of the species found only in West Papua, Indonesia: Vogelkop superb, red, Wilson’s, and western parotia. See more @TimLaman as we celebrate this Earth Day! Birds of paradise are the global ambassadors for conservation of the forests of Papua. #conservationprovince #TanahPapua #papua #Indonesia #birdofparadise @BirdsofParadiseProject


Las montañas más altas de la Tierra alojan a leopardos de las nieves, águilas reales, cabras de las Rocosas, barnaclas cariblancas y geladas. Pero solo los más resistentes pueden soportar el clima extremo, la escasez de alimento y el oxígeno limitado de estos picos. Con imágenes de comportamientos nunca vistos, usando nuevas tecnologías para captarlos desde nuevos ángulos y a distintas escalas, este episodio presenta un acceso único a uno de los entornos más extremos del planeta.

[ #PlanetOrPlastic ] Cup and Crab | Photograph by Noel Guevara (@noelguevaraphoto)
“A crab in a plastic cup floats near the surface in Caban Cove on Maricaban Island, Philippines,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Noel Guevara. “The subject was not tampered with, posed, or photo manipulated in post — in fact, I only intended to photograph the cup and was surprised to find a crab inside. It is as real as it gets and sadly, not out of the ordinary. Photographed while on assignment for Greenpeace.”

“Wow, Noel, this is so heartbreaking. Thank you for making this photograph and sharing it with the world. Out of sight, out of mind and the more images we see, the more awareness there will be of the dangers our seas are facing right now. ‘It's as real as it gets...’" — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

Photo by @krystlejwright // Sponsored by @makersmark // It's always a gamble with Mother Nature when venturing into extreme environments. Working as a guide in Antarctica, I've experienced days where we were sailing in nine-meter seas with winds howling well over 100 kilometers an hour and days like this, where the water turns to glass and only the sounds of icebergs crackling in Crystal Sound could be heard. I was sailing south on this evening as our crew was headed for the polar circle. Before succumbing to sleep, I saw the moment where the rising moon would align with this spectacular iceberg. The success of landscape photography relies on luck and a lot of patience, but that notion in itself is a wonderful reward for being present in the moment to enjoy. // This Earth Day, @makersmark is on a mission to remove 75,000 pounds of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways.

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.
