Photo by @BabakTafreshi | Walking in Paris at night, this large street banner with the backdrop of the moon and the Eiffel Tower stopped me for a while. It was an interesting combination in the City of Light. Explore more of The World at Night photography with me @babaktafreshi. #paris #eiffel #nightphotography

Photo by @jimmychin | Expeditions are often hurried with multiple agendas and objectives. In this moment, we had finished most of our filming, shooting and ski objectives. It was just a time to be present and reflect on the intrinsic beauty of the West Coast of Greenland. For more images of adventures in Greenland, follow @jimmychin.

Photo @stephen_matera | As I hiked out of the wilderness one evening at Mt. Rainier at dusk, I had my head down trying to watch my footing in the fading light. Stopping for a second, I looked up to see the full moon rising in the perfect location. Catching the rising or setting moon and surrounding landscape with the right balance of exposure for both is just a matter of timing. Shoot it too soon and the moon will be underexposed. Shoot it too late and the moon will blow out to pure white with no details. In this case I was lucky to look up at the right moment and hurry to get my tripod and camera set up for a few quick shots when the two were in sync. This is a single shot with almost no editing beyond some minor exposure adjustments. The blue color is due to the scattered light from the atmosphere and shooting away from where the sun was setting.  Follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from Washington and around the world. #moonrise #wilderness #dusk

Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | The stunning ballroom of the Palazzo Valguarnera Gangi in Palermo, Italy. Considered the most sumptuous private residence in Sicily, Palazzo Gangi became almost legendary when Luchino Visconti decided to film the magnificent ballroom scene of "Il Gattopardo" (The Leopard) there in 1963. Palaces built by Sicily’s nobles were meant to showcase their wealth and appreciation for the finest architectural styles and decorative arts of the day. Because they took decades to build, the palazzi often incorporated a range of design elements as tastes changed during construction periods. It’s common to see splendid examples of Baroque, Rococo, and Neoclassical styles mixed even in one room. To see more photos from my travels, follow me @andrea_frazzetta #palermo #sicily #italy

Video by Muhammed Muheisen @mmuheisen | Kasumi doesn’t want her hair to be brushed. I spent time on the world’s only floating animal sanctuary while on assignment for @natgeo in Amsterdam. De Poezenboot, Dutch for “the catboat,” hosts around 50 stray and abandoned cats, 17 of which are permanent residents that have lived on the boat for several years. Day after day, you become part of their environment– you're just another big cat to them.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | Rafa Ortiz dropping over Spirit Falls while whitewater kayaking on the Little White Salmon river near White Salmon, Washington. Sports influence travel in a major way. As an adventure sports photographer, most of my travels are to participate in a sport or to photograph it. Getting all that gear from point A to point B is often a major challenge. Just imagine trying to fly with a kayak! Rafa is one of the world's best kayakers and for this shoot he ran Spirit Falls 15 times so we could get the shot using big strobes. Traveling to pursue your passion is a great way to travel in my experience. #spiritfalls #washington #whitewaterkayaking

Photo by @acacia.johnson | A herd of guanacos grazes near El Chaltén, a village in Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park. Famous for its mountain peaks and dramatic glaciers, this region of Patagonia is also home to wildlife such as guanacos - wild camelids closely related to llamas.

Photo by @mborowick | A long exposure photograph taken on Route 1 in California. As a car drives South, its headlights hit heavy fog causing this incredible moment to happen. Big Sur is home to some of the most beautiful scenic highway driving in the entire state. #california #bigsur #stars

Photo by @Kahliaprilphoto | This shot perfectly represents Antarctica for me. 5 hours of zodiac cruising through the calm waters of Charlotte Bay, surrounded by icebergs, seals, whales, towering peaks and some of the best light I've ever seen. Here, a humpback whale shows off her fluke against a dramatic background of mountains and ice.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier | The breathtakingly-beautiful islands of French Polynesia were formed in the wake of volcanic activity and coral growth. An atoll is a coral reef that grows in the rough shape of a ring, often around an extinct volcano. Over time, the volcano sinks underwater, but the coral grow close to the surface, creating a lagoon. Here, a boy swims in the waters of Rangiroa, an atoll famous for its clear blue water and diverse marine fauna. Rangiroa has 415 islets made out of coral, and people live year-round on two of them. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier for more photos and stories from my recent expedition to French Polynesia. #coralreef #biodiversity #volcano #ocean

Photo by @sofia_jaramillo5 | Wax Palm trees grow in the Cocora Valley near Salento, Colombia. The enormous trees grow up to 200 feet tall and thrive in high-altitude places. When I first explored this area, I was astonished by the beauty of these trees. They reminded me of a book from my childhood. Can you guess which one?
