Top Shot: Sleeping Beauties | Photograph by Fabrice Guerin (@fabriceguerin)
.
#YourShotPhotographer Fabrice Guerin captured this peaceful moment while on a scientific underwater mission and observed sperm whales half sleeping. He writes, “Nature provides us beautiful surprises. To meet the giant of the oceans is an unforgettable moment. Sperm whales are able to half-sleep in a vertical position. The scientist swam several times among them without disturbing them. He swam from one sperm whale to another like a guest to say hello. Amazing moment!” This photo was selected for April 20, 2018 Daily Dozen.

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.

The World at Night photography
From a desert camping night on Earth to the heart of Lagoon Nebula, 4000 light years away towards the galactic core. This 40-second zoom takes millions of years with speed of current spacecrafts. The opening view shows my tent in the Atacama Desert of Chile, two years ago. The nebula appears rising above Licancabur volcano. The second part by @europeanspaceagency @nasa zooms very deep to the star-making center of the nebula. For the 28th anniversary of Hubble Telescope in space, this spectacular closeup image of interstellar gas in constellation Sagittarius is released (the last scene). Hubble has orbited Earth about 150,000 times (each 97 min). Learn on @nasahubble and spacetelescope.org.

2017 香港攝影大賽 香港人與事組 第三名
| 那夜凌晨,我坐上了開往時光隧道的紅Van | ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
靈感來自一般的車軌作品!在這繁榮的城市,基本每一位香港人都會坐過Van仔,凌晨時段更是通宵Van仔的繁忙時間,絕大部分司機都把車開得奇快,但處變不驚的香港人已經習以為常,把這提心吊膽的車速,當作小菜一碟。玩手機的、睡覺的、大聲講電話的、各自各享受著這回家的車途。當然拍照的我也正享受著!你呢⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“When it comes to ethical fashion, people have this image of hemp and unfashionable fabrics in their mind,” says 17-year-old ethical fashion blogger Tolmeia Gregory (@tollydollyposh). The British-born, Italy-based teen is clear this needs to change. “There’s so much more to it than that. It just means caring about your clothes and where they come from.” “We’re a lot more aware these days of where our food is coming from. We care about it because we eat it every day. Why do we not care about our clothes, because we wear them every day? We all wear clothes. We all have an impact. Not everyone can make different choices about fashion straight away, but just being aware is an important step. Ethical fashion can be fashionable. It can be stylish. Eventually, I’d love to have my own sustainable label — thinking about people wearing my designs is exciting to me.” We’re celebrating #EarthDay with Tolmeia Gregory. Head to our story now to see more.
