Any gnomes down there? “This spot has always been a favorite of mine,” says drone photographer Bo Le (@safromabove). “It looks like a magic garden out of a fairy tale.” #WHP🌲

Two Oceanic Whitetip Sharks near the surface in The Bahamas; one of the few locations left where these animals can be found. Oceanic Whitetip populations have been decimated due to the demand for their fins, which are prized for shark fin soup. Like the American Bison, an animal that was once abundant and then hunted to the brink, only a fraction of Oceanic Whitetip shark populations remain today. Their numbers have declined 93% between 1995 and 2010 alone. Recovery will be difficult, because they reach sexual maturity only by age 7 and have small litters of pups every one to two years.
Living in the pelagic zone - the open ocean - Oceanic Whitetips are shaped like aircraft, with long pectoral fins that allow them to glide efficiently over long distances, expending little energy.

At Home in Nature IV | Photograph by Halie West (@haliewestphoto)
“At Home in Nature [series] aims to remind us of home that lies outdoors, the places we should seek to keep our adventurous spirits alive,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Halie West. “With furniture in frame, the landscape becomes a living room that is far too familiar. Great expanses and untouched places become a second home because you are home. This is where we began. Taken at White Sands National Monument at sunrise.”

“The premise of this project is thoughtful and well executed! I love that your model is wearing a color sweater similar to her surroundings and make us further focus on the television being out of place in this environment. Your caption akes me want to think a little bit more about keeping my adventurous spirit alive! I’m looking forward to seeing more of this project!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

With @natalyosmann. #followmeto mysterious Venice. This was the time people thought Nataly was walking naked on the streets :)). Actually she wasn’t - this is just me finding a good angle. First time in Venice and I can definitely say that this was one of the most romantic places we have been to.
P.s I know it is a mask, but always had a feeling that it is looking me right in the eyes, whenever I saw this picture :)

#ⒻⓄⓁⓁⓄⓌⓂ️ⒺⓉⓄ #следуйзамной в Венецию. Помню, как мы бегали по городу в поиске идеальной маски. К нашему удивлению, найти, ту самую, было достаточно сложно. Конечно, они все были очень красивыми, но почему-то казались туристическими. Вам может показаться, что Наташа тут чуть ли не голая, но это не так. Оптический обман :). Это был мой первый раз в Венеции и я точно могу сказать, что это один из самых романтичных городов, в котором мы когда-либо были. Он навсегда останется в моём сердце. ❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍ ❝¿¿Какое ваше самое романтичное место?? ❞:)
