“On a shallow reef just off the island of Sipadan, in Malaysia’s Sipadan National Park, our dive group encountered a very large school of Trevally Jacks,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Michael Monfore. “At one point, the huge ball of fish surrounded my wife, and the fish parted just enough to get this shot. The experience of being engulfed in a school of fish is magical, and for a moment, transports you to another reality.”

“This image portrays scale, abundance, and the dynamic orchestra of life that is present beneath the waves. I can hear the fish, the diver, and the busy reef through this visual. Deeply evocative capture.” — @natgeo Explorer and Creative Conservationist Asher Jay (@earthheiress).

Founder, chief creative officer, entrepreneur, ice cream maven — meet Jeni Britton Bauer (@jenibrittonbauer). “I quit art school to start my first ice cream business in 1996,” says the 44-year-old behind Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. “It’s been my lifelong pursuit — literally, more than half my entire life has been devoted to ice cream.”
Jeni likes to say, “FLAVOR IS EVERYTHING.” “Flavor is what you experience when you eat ice cream, but it is so much more,” she says. “It’s about memory association and that is unique to each person. It’s about gathering knowledge and experience and going deeper. So, for me, ice cream is about flavor, and it’s about conversation and getting to know someone else better. My favorite part of my job is scooping ice cream and helping people find a flavor that inspires them and the conversation that unfolds.”
She’s based in Columbus, Ohio, but Jeni is often on the road to visit her scoop shops all over the country— and she loves what she’s seeing. “The maker and entrepreneur movement is a massive tsunami. Women, especially, are so united and connected and gathering all over,” she says. “And it’s only growing.”

Video by @joelsartore | This highly muscular and robust amphibian is known as a Cameroon slippery frog. They are extremely adaptable and live in very cold, fast flowing streams. They do not require tree cover and can even be found living in some urban areas. Because this frog is truly gigantic, measuring up to 9 inches (25 cm) in length, they are often hunted for their meat. Due to this kind of overharvesting as well as habitat fragmentation in Cameroon and Nigeria, this frog is currently listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.

Photo by @danwestergren // #sponsored by @visit_arizona // The Granite Dells of Watson Lake near Prescott, Arizona, have a very unique look that I thought might make a great picture. Asking around in the SUP community of the state, I found someone eager to take me there for a cold 5 am paddle to watch the sunrise. // Even once you see it in person, you may still doubt it’s real. Plan your [un]real Arizona getaway. #VisitArizona

During my trip to Telemark, Norway last year I pulled over on the side of the road to take this shot of a stunning reflective landscape.
