Photo by @FransLanting Palm trees dot a savanna in southern Madagascar. Once this great island supported an amazing cast of animal characters from pygmy hippos to giant tortoises with lemurs the size of gorillas and flightless elephant birds mixed in. They disappeared after humans colonized Madagascar some two thousand years ago. In many ways Madagascar is a microcosmos of our planet in peril. Follow me @FransLanting for more images from this remarkable Island.

“I waited for a whole year for this one weekend in September to have fall foliage, and the Milky Way rising over the Maroon Bells and reflecting in the lake in one frame,” writes Your Shot photographer Manish Mamtani. “After reaching here, I had to wait for another couple of hours in the freezing weather for the moon to set and the Milky Way to align with the Maroon Bells. The green color in the sky is due to air glow. It was so quiet and calm that you could see the reflection of the Milky War in the lake clearly even with the naked eye.”

“Wow. I hope you have framed this photo nice and big for your wall Manis. And then I hope every time you look at it, you pause and have a quiet moment remembering the journey you took to be at this exact spot to capture this image.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

From the golden pellets of sprouted grain they feed their chickens to the ingredients that make it to their kitchen table for supper, nearly every bite of food Kirsten Bradley and her family eats is grown on their 100 percent sustainable farm, Milkwood (@milkwood_permaculture). “Homegrown food tends to be very delicious,” says Kirsten, who lives in Victoria, Australia. But Milkwood is much more than a family farm growing great flavors; it’s also a school where people can learn how to build sustainable farm systems. Kirsten and an extended community of educators offer courses on everything from natural beekeeping and mushroom cultivation to biointensive growing, an organic vegetable growing method designed to maximize harvest in small spaces.
Soon it’ll be growing season in Australia, so Kirsten's family is busy planting tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings and making sure the bees pollinate their fruit trees in hopes of a big summer bounty. And then? They wait. “Growing of food is not an instant process, and it needs patience and perseverance,” she says. “But watching people bloom out of consumerism into makers and doers is really quite beautiful.” #WorldFoodDay

The Andes are pretty incredible. Taking off today and going all the way north to the other end of the country in Salta. Temperatures will be much warmer. I got a nasty cold here so I’m looking forward to warm weather and sun.

Los Glaciares National Park is the 340th World Heritage Site I’ve visited.

Hydra by night. A perfect long weekend getaway. In mid-September, the heat backs off and the water is still warm. A long trek or two gives good coverage of the island. Food is excellent, especially if fish and seafood are your thing and you don't mind feta, local cheeses, and Greek wine. Throw in an afternoon boat ride along the southwestern shore, a few dips in the Gulf of Hydra, some late afternoon strolls and a lie-in or two and you'll have the makings for a perfect shoulder/mid-season break.
