natgeo Photo by @paleyphoto (Matthieu Paley). #Rakaposhi, also known as Dumani ("Mother of Mist") in North #Pakistan, is the 27th highest mountain in the world (7788 m - 25.551 ft). Measured from base to summit, this #mountain has an uninterrupted ~6000m vertical rise which, in a way, makes it the tallest free standing mountain in the world. It was first climbed by a British-Pakistani team in 1958 - and not many times after that. You can see it straight from the #Karakoram highway below. I remember how stunned I was the first time I saw this giant popping out of the landscape, 6000m above my head. I didn't know what mountains were before I saw that. Shot on assignment for @natgeo. More mountain images on @paleyphoto #unpublished #Hunza #Nagar @thephotosociety @natgeocreative 3h

natgeo Photo by @ciriljazbec Kangerlussuaq Airport is the international hub for Air Greenland. It is located away from the coast and hence less prone to fog and wind in comparison with other airports in Greenland. The Kangerlussuaq area has very few inhabitants, around 500, so few passengers have their origin or destination here. Most passengers change planes. The first airport was built here during the US occupation in 1941 under the name of Bluie West-8. Follow this journey here at @natgeo and at @ciriljazbec in next weeks. #Northern #Greenland #Arctic #Kangerlussuaq #airport 12h

natgeo King Penguins are already stirring on the beach at Gold Harbor in South Georgia as we made a landing at 4:30 AM, and I shoot this long exposure to capture the blue light of pre-dawn. Our first landing in South Georgia and the scene is almost overwhelming with the teaming wildlife and mountain and glacier backdrop.

natgeo Walking out of Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai, looking for leopards at midnight.
@stevewinterphoto
When they saw us these men stopped work in their machine shop and asked what we were doing.
One of my team asked if they ever see leopards - they said about once a week.
This is part of my @natgeo worldwide leopard story published in Dec 2015.

natgeo Photo by @petekmuller. A man teaches his son to row as his friend looks on at a private rowing club at Mazowe Dam in #Zimbabwe. The area around Mazowe, which is approximately 45 km (28 miles) from the capital of #Harare, is serene and picturesque. Zimbabwe is one of several Africa countries that has a white minority, many of whom are the African-born descendants of #European colonists. The role and status of the white Zimbabwean community has been a source of great #political contention, both during and since the end of white minority rule in 1980. #Africa #Zim 20h

natgeo Silent gathering. Photo taken by @christianziegler in the Green Swamp Preserve /North Carolina, a protected area managed by @nature_org (The Nature Conservancy). Thousands of Yellow pitcher plant (Sarracenia flava) sprout happily in a recently burned clearing in a Long-Leafed Pine forest in North Carolina. Pitcher plants – a total of 12 recognized species across the eastern seaboard of the US, are one of three principal types of carnivorous plants (pitcher plants, sundews, and the venus fly trap) that can all be found in the remaining bits of Long-Leafed Pine forest along the East Coast of the US. Reduced to 5 % of its original area, this beautiful forest type, along with many of its inhabitants, face serious conservation challenges.

Part of a story that I am posting in more detail on @christianziegler

natgeo Midnight Manta by @daviddoubilet A manta ray soars through a beam of light to feed on the plankton swarms attracted by the concentrated light. Mantas can live to 50 + years of age, maturing at 8-10 years and give live birth to 1 pup (rarely 2) every 2-3 years. #Manta populations are being severely reduced around the globe due to a growing demand for gill rakers for Asian Markets. The best place to dive with these magnificent creatures is #KonaHawaii, Maldives, Socorro and Yap. With @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #GoToEdgeKeepGoing #RespectNature @seacam @NikonCamera 1d

natgeo Photo @ladzinski / A male #GreatHornedOwl sits perched and alert within eye sight of his nesting mate in the early evening. Great horned owls are monogamous and the most widely ranged owl in the Americas. I was lucky enough to get a tip of the location of this nest yesterday while in Rocky Mountain national by a kind photographer (thank you Isabel Rodriguez). These are incredibly beautiful birds and always an amazing sight to see. @natgeocreative 1d

natgeo Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride // Bucking whitewater in the basement of the #GrandCanyon.
Despite the remoteness of this 277-mile stretch of the #Coloradoriver, its rapids inside this mile-deep canyon, change daily, often hourly, rising and dropping, depending on electricity needs in the Southwest which calls on Glen Canyon dam upstream to release more water through its turbines to fulfill the electrical demand. Shot on assignment for @natgeotravel. To see the view of the Grand Canyon National Park from the air, go to @pedrombride. #nature #chasingrivers #rafting #lifeline #dory @oars_rafting
