Spending time with family and friends together outdoors on a trail in the remote reaches of a national park always creates some of my most memorable experiences. // Join @Nature_Valley in supporting the national parks by hiking your local trails.

“The foundation and early creation of a human tower in Catalonia. Every year in Spain, a Catalan tradition of building castells — a human tower reaching up to 10 stories — takes place in the town of Vilafranca del Penedès,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Eduardo Soler. “This image was photographed during the annual festivities in honor of Saint Felix, the town’s patron saint.”

“I love how my eye moves to the foundation of this castell. By shooting at a little higher perspective, you are revealing the huge crowd watching, and participating in these festivities. I feel the energy, the anticipation, the excitement as the human tower will continue to grow higher. And great decision to present this frame in black and white, I love it. Well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

Photo by @FransLanting Usually the magic light that can transform an ordinary scene into something extraordinary occurs at dawn or dusk, but in Arizona’s slot canyons it happens in the middle of the day. That’s when a shaft of light suffused with dust penetrates deep into a narrow canyon whose sandstone walls are shaped by water over time. Light bounces back and forth between the walls and it creates an ethereal luminosity at the bottom that is reminiscent of a cathedral. This particular canyon is located on Navajo tribal land. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of special places around the world.
