💎 Животные со всего мира - Instagram photos and videos


Photo by @cookjenshel | Twenty two years ago, on September 18th President Clinton designated the Escalante-Grand Staircase National Monument in Utah, to protect for generations to come – the irreplaceable antiquities that exist within its over 1.7 million acres. It was a dream assignment for us, and our first for National Geographic, to photograph that spectacular landscape containing 250 million years of geologic history. It would take a lifetime to see the vast number of rock art panels and historic dwellings found within the monument’s borders, so we were fortunate to have the help of archeologists and geologists to lead us to many of the more important sites. Much of this landscape has still not been fully surveyed, and with current proposals to shrink the monument, it’s heartbreaking that we may lose an unknown rich history before it’s been fully revealed.

Valley of Fire | Photograph by Rex Jones (@rexgoeshiking)
“A not-so-well known view from the Valley of Fire [that] takes some exploring to find [because] there isn’t a trail to it,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Rex Jones. “It’s one of the things I love about hiking and landscapes, there is always something new to see, to explore, to admire, and occasionally to capture.”

“The blue green tones in the center create the feeling of entering a new world, as if we are emerging through a portal into another realm. Nicely exposed and composed.” — @natgeo photographer Brian Skerry (@brianskerry)


Photo by @PaulNicklen // While photographing this southern elephant seal on South Georgia Island, I was caught by surprise, as this male flung a clump of sand over its body in a perfect arch. This behaviour is a tactic for keeping cool while on land. The largest of all seals, southern elephant seals can be recognized by their unique facial appearance, however, it is only males that have the large elongated noses. In the past, elephant seals were close to extinction because they were hunted for their oil. Fortunately, due to protection, their populations have been increasing. Today, close to half a million elephant seals can be found on South Georgia Island. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen to find out about a dangerous encounter I had with a male elephant seal.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmotion
This weekend’s goal is to capture objects and scenes in motion, as in this photo by Elena Shevchuk (@elena_from_tver). Start with the movement. Consider the range of motions you can document that reflect different feelings or emotions, like the quiet and soothing way wind gently blows your friend’s hair, or the high-energy action of your sibling splashing in a pool.
Plan the capture. The way you document movement can bring another dimension to your #WHPmotion submission. For example, you could blur the action by tracking the motion of a bright car as it drives through a busy junction to create an abstract environment, or you could capture a cat midair as it jumps down from the furniture for a freeze-frame effect.

Play with creative tools. Slow motion or time-lapse can exaggerate the mood and movement in your submission, or multiple exposures can track multiple positions of someone moving through your frame.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmotion hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. 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 is eligible to be featured next week.

around and around we go in one of my favorite buildings in Copenhagen - I posted a video from here on story the other day and a friend sent me a message saying that they built this 17th century church tower with a ramp to the top because the king was too fat to walk the stairs. Must be nice to be the king 👑 #myvikingstory @vikingcruises
