At first I was just gripped out of my mind sitting mid-air with nothing but a normal airplane seatbelt, 60mph wind whipping, knowing that if I dropped anything in the propeller 3ft behind me it was the end of us. ~

After getting over fear, it was mostly just the wonder of seeing a landscape in a new way, one I'm familiar with on the micro level of cracks and petroglyphs but not in this “seen from space” perspective. What seemed so infinite - the endless desert towers and ridge lines, was now just a few interconnected miniatures carved in geologic sand and strafed with shadows of the earth’s morning light. ~ with @chrisburkard @taylorfreesolo @shotsfromabove

Fishing for mackerel is a competitive sport among gannets. Seen here off the coast of Scotland, the seabirds begin their dives as high as 50 feet above the water. By the time they plunge through the surface, they can be traveling as fast as 60 miles per hour.

As it flows downstream, the North Fork of the Virgin River continues to carve Zion Canyon deeper and deeper.

On our story: yo-yo champion Thawhir Iqbal (@thawhir) — and his friends Ian (@iansorandom) and Marcus (@marcusk0h) — show off their skills in Singapore. 🌀 “Apart from winning competitions, the best part of yo-yoing is to be able to make friends and connections with other people who share the same passion as me worldwide,” says 19-year-old Thawhir, who is a six-time Singapore national champion. “I do love to share my passion to non-yo-yo players whenever they ask about it. It makes me happy when I see the amazement on their faces when I showcase to them what modern yo-yoing looks like.”

“ This is my new puppy willow! She’s a rescue from California. I think she has German shepherd, terrier, and a little lab. So many puppy kisses and lots of snuggling. I can’t wait to take her on more hikes and get her to experience the world with me!” writes @michael.foushee
