Chichen Itzá was a large pre-Columbian Maya city in Yucatán State, Mexico, and a major focal point in the Maya Lowlands from the Late Classic period (c. CE600–900) through the Terminal Classic (c. CE800–900) to the Postclassic period (c. CE900–1200). Architecturally, the site exhibits a multitude of styles, reminiscent of central Mexico and of the Puuc and Chenes styles of the Northern Maya lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most recent interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion.

Here photographed, the Temple of the Warriors (Templo de los Guerrero), which consists of a large stepped pyramid flanked and fronted by rows of carved columns depicting warriors. It is one of the most impressive and important buildings at Chichen Itzá. The structure entombs a former building called The Temple of the Chac Mool. The complex was excavated and restored by the Carnegie Institution of Washington from 1925 to 1928.

Los Angeles, California | Photograph by Chris Valle
“This is a tilt-shift shot taken as my plane approached Los Angeles International Airport after returning from a week-long work trip to San Jose,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Chris Valle. “I was glad to be home, but was about to get right back into traffic on the 405 at 4PM. Nothing like a little perspective to make this massive chunk of concrete feel like your home town.”

“I’ve seen tons of tilt-shift photography in my life, but this one I thought was so cool. First, a great idea to capture this image from your plane window. Second, I love that our focus is drawn into the center of the city. The rest of the foreground becomes an interesting sight of patterns.” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)

Marcus Wagner (@mr.wgnr) got lost (literally) with a friend in an industrial neighborhood. “#WHPgetlost could be my personal theme — I’m always trying to find lost places, hideaways and strange locations.”

Saint-Petersburg Catherine Palace is definitely worth visiting if anyone comes to Russia. This amazing palace was bombed during the World War 2. Its famous Amber Room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during the war. Before it’s loss it was thought to be an “Eights Wonder of the World”. We were super lucky to have this place just for us for this photo as usually it is packed with people.

❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍ #следуйзамной в Екатерининский дворец. Этот невероятный дворец в Царском селе был сильно разрушен во время одной из бомбардировок. Во время Великой Отечественной войны дворец оказался на оккупированных территориях и его знаменитая Янтарная комната была вывезена немецкими войсками. Считалось, что Янтарная комната - это “восьмое чудо света” Нам невероятно повезло сфотографировать кадр без людей. ❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍

I recently travelled to Jalisco, Mexico to photograph the world of Tequila production for a Far & Away. ‘Tequila Rocks’ was an epic journey into the blue agave fields East of Guadalajara, to the rowdy bars and distilleries of Tequila town. Click the link in my bio @arni_coraldo to see the full story online!
Pictured here is Guillermo, a Jimador (agave harvester) working for Tequila Ocho, cutting the sharp fronds of a blue agave plant off of the ‘piña’, the heart of the plant and the main ingredient of quality tequila.
Thx to my assistant @delaney_mar and @tequilaochomexico and photo editors @hopebrimelow and @jamesbwellford for putting me on this super fun journey. .

#FotoDelDía | En la playa de Binh Thuan, una provincia costera central de Vietnam, los pescadores empujan su bote, llamado coracle, hacia el mar. El fotógrafo de Your Shot, Tran Tuan Viet explica: "Los pescadores que naveguen con coracle deben tener una salud excelente y habilidades especiales para mantener el barco en equilibrio, entre las altas olas y un funcionamiento preciso".
