Photo by Mohd Khorshid | All of us know that the cheetah is one of the fastest animals on the planet, but not everyone knows about the tear marks. The tear marks as seen on this cheetahs eye help to reflect the glare of the sun when they are hunting during the day so they can stay focused. I documented this moment in Tanzania during my safari trip in the Ngorongoro reserve. This cheetah was one of two cheetahs hiding behind the tree it was watching me behind the branches so I decide to concentrate on the black tear with the branch textures to make this image come to life. #YourShotPhotographer


Photo by @sarahyltonphoto | When I lost my father suddenly almost a decade ago, I backpacked my way through India, getting lost, learning to see, and slowly healing my heart through the warmth and deep history of this very special place. India has been and always will be my greatest teacher. It’s a country that reveals itself in layers and with great patience. I was reminded of this when I made this image outside of Ghum Railway Station in West Bengal several months ago. I’d almost given up on the day, annoyed at myself for not being able to tap into my craft. I put my camera away, and just as I surrendered, this cinematic scene appeared before me. Slowing down, and letting a place reveal itself to you is all part of the process. Follow me @sarahyltonphoto for more travel stories #india #darjeeling #train

Natalie Glaze and Zanna van Dijk met because of Instagram. Today, they’re the #founders of Stay Wild Swim (@staywildswim), a sustainable swimwear brand designed and stitched in London.

The pair’s deep connection to sustainability and the ocean inspired them to start the company together. But neither had a formal background in fashion. “For us, there was so much bliss in the naiveté of just beginning our business,” explains Zanna. “We started out not really knowing what we were getting ourselves into and gave it a go — and the next thing you know, we’re in up to our necks.” 🌊✨ In our limited series #founders, we’re sharing the stories of amazing small business owners from all over the world. A new episode will be available every Saturday until Christmas. To see even more #founders stories, check out @instagramforbusiness

Underwater Flight | Photograph by Eduardo Lopez Negrete
"A massive school of mobula rays gather off the coast of Bahia Magdalena in Californa Sur, Mexico. We first encountered them at the surface, but pretty soon they dove down to about 60 feet," remembers #YourShotPhotographer Eduardo Lopez Negrete. "It was pretty hard keeping up with them from the surface, let alone dive down on a quick breath of air to try to capture a glimpse of this very beautiful sight."
