Photo by F. Dilek Uyar @fdilekuyar | Şanlıurfa is famous for its chili pepper. July, August and September are the most popular months and the peppers are dried in temperatures of minimum 100 degrees in the sun. Workers wear thick sweaters and snow berets despite the heat, they say it's the only way to protect themselves from the sun during the day under such high temperatures. #YourShotPhotographer

Photo by @ErikaSkogg | Swipe right to see the continued panorama of the sandstone formations and man-made Bastei Bridge in Saxon Switzerland, Germany. An hour's drive or train ride to Rathen from Dresden brings you to a picturesque ferry ride across the Elbe River and the many hiking trails throughout Saxon Switzerland National Park. If you need any additional encouragement, there is a restaurant serving traditional German food at the top! #Germany #Rathen

Victoria Garrick (@victoriagarrick) is no stranger to finding balance in the face of pressure. As a public speaker, content creator and former student athlete, she speaks openly about the real pressures of social comparison. “The pressure to be perfect stems from a societal belief that perfection is the only way to be good enough,” says Victoria. “I tried to attain these unrealistic standards of beauty, get straight As in school, become a star athlete and constantly seem happy. I was so consumed with portraying a perfect image and pretty Instagram aesthetic that I lost sight of what it meant to be me,” she says. “When I finally realized I was living for likes and validation from others online, I wanted to find a way to get back to being real and authentic.”⁣

Instagram partnered with the Jed Foundation (@jedfoundation) to create a toolkit addressing the Pressure to be Perfect, recognizing that what you see posted by others is just one part of their story.

Photo by @babaktafreshi | A few weeks ago on the shoreline near Christchurch, on the South Island of New Zealand, the Milky Way’s galactic core was sinking to the ocean as I was warming my hands by a bonfire left by fishermen. The brightest point reflecting on the water is Jupiter, set against a dark nebula known as the Pipe, which also forms a celestial Kiwi, the national bird. The little red cloud in the galactic band is Lagoon Nebula, 4,100 light years away. Organized by the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand, I traveled around the country for a dozen public talks on photography and the values of preserving the natural night environment of our planet.

Baby Manatee in the Rain | Photograph by Szilárd Jankó (@szjanko)
"Thousands of rain drops on the surface, the cutest little baby manatee swimming just below," writes #YourShotPhotographer Szilárd Jankó. This photo was selected for the August 9, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

“Manatees are some of the sweetest creatures (in my opinion) and their gentle, slow nature is perfectly captured here in the way the mother manatee shields her calf, keeping it safe. I love the mirroring textures between the rain on the water and the sea floor.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
