The World at Night project
A couple of nights ago in a remote corner of the Death Valley, California, one of the driest places on the planet and a vast Dark Sky Park, where natural night is protected from light pollution. Stars of Orion, the Hunter, are the icons of the winter sky, next to Sirius, the brightest star in the Earth night sky. The yellow glow on the horizon, from the surprising distance of 150 miles, is the light of Los Angeles.
Follow me @babaktafreshi for photos that take you from the Earth to the universe.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPjoyful
This weekend the challenge is to make images and videos that capture a spirit of joy, as in this featured photo from Tony Noël (@tony_noel). Here are some tips to get you started:
Head out. Think about the places you go that make you feel free and joyful. Set up an excursion — it can be solo or with a group of friends — to take pictures, make videos and enjoy the day.
Express your joy. Get creative with the action in your submission and think about the actions that bring you joy — like dancing, drawing and hiking — or express an emotional release, like a big belly laugh.
Consider symbols. Birds in flight, flowers and hearts, the wind in your hair, tossing leaves into the air, or even something as simple as your body language can express joy and freedom.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPjoyful hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. By adding the #WHPjoyful hashtag, you consent to and grant Instagram all rights to repost your photo or video. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend with the #WHPjoyful hashtag is eligible for the project and, if selected, to be featured next week.

Walking 300 Feet Under the Sea Level | Photograph by Guiseppe Fallica
.
“The Realmonte Salt Mines (in southern Sicily) consists of 50 miles of tunnels made at 300 feet under the sea level,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Guiseppe Fallica. “Inside the mine, there is also a church carved in the salt — suddenly an unexpected spectacular layering of salt and clay.”
—
“This is such a graphic picture, with fantastic swirls, patterns, and tunnels. The figure gives some scale to size of the mine, with a wonderful shadow as a bonus. Also, there is a nice photographic game going on here — the image looks like it’s a black and white photograph, until you see the yellow helmet, and you realize it is actually a color photograph. A nice surprise, and well done.” — @natgeo photographers Diane Cook and Len Jenshel (@cookjenshel)

@jassensf pictures thousands of Volkswagen and Audi cars sitting idle in the Mojave Desert near Victorville, California. Diesel models manufactured from 2009 to 2015 intentionally cheated emissions tests mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency. Following the scandal, VW recalled millions of cars. Jassen Todorov says, "By capturing scenes like this one, I hope we will all become more conscious and more caring for our beautiful planet.

Fox and Ice | Photograph by Sonalini Khetrapal (@sonalinik)
.
"I wanted to photograph the rare blue morph species of arctic foxes in their harsh winter environment," says Sonalini Khetrapal. "To photograph these miraculously tough animals, I went to the uninhabited Hornstrandir Nature Reserve in northern Iceland. I captured my dream image as she stared straight at me, making fleeting eye contact, while we both braced ourselves against the roaring winds." -
