outsidemagazine The first moment we saw the Penguin in the Cirque of the Unclimbables, we dropped everything and got right to it. Despite endless warnings of rain plaguing the area, the weather was clear and I was able to capture our little granite mecca and its incredible backdrop. #Viewfinder #Canada Photo/Caption: Jim Martinello | OutsideOnline.com 24h

outsidemagazine #tbt Exposure, August 2004. Greg Hugling was heli-tracking a pod of dolphins in July of 2003 near Port Elizabeth, South Africa, when he caught them just as they arced through a crashing wave. “The pilot was ready to go down with the ship if something went wrong,” says the Santa Barbara–based lensman, 51. “He couldn’t swim— and he wasn’t insured to fly over water.” | OutsideOnline.com 6d

outsidemagazine #tbt Exposure, August 2004. Photographer Edward Riddell observed this colossal mammatus cloud—which formed on the belly of a passing thunderstorm—while in Wyoming’s Grand #Teton National Park, looking east toward Sheep Mountain, a.k.a. “the Sleeping Indian.” The 52-year-old photographer, who lives in Wilson, Wyoming, says, “I was just out of the wind and rain, and the light from the west was hitting the tail end of the storm.” | OutsideOnline.com 6d

outsidemagazine Patagonia has dozens of famous rivers, but none more breathtaking than the Futaleufú. Located in the Trevelin area on the Argentine side of Patagonia, I try to visit whenever I can to take pictures and fish. The only challenge is not getting distracted by the scenery. #Viewfinder Photo/Caption: Isaias Miciu Nicolaevici | OutsideOnline.com 1w

outsidemagazine The Fisher Towers near Moab, Utah, are known for their loose rock and difficult aid climbs. A few popular routes, such as the Colorado NE Ridge (5.8 C2 IV) are climbed regularly. A few pitches up, a group of highliners put up a line between the Kingfisher (left) and the smaller neighboring tower. Despite the snowy and dangerous conditions, world-record holder Faith Dickey is seen successfully walking the line. #Viewfinder Photo/Caption: @scottyrog | OutsideOnline.com 1w

outsidemagazine My brother and I headed out for a float and a fish one sunny summer day on the Colorado River. As we approached Radium Hot Springs, we heard, and then saw, a group people jumping off a cliff into the cool, brown water below. I yelled at my brother to drop the mini anchor so I could take a photograph. I snapped a few frames, and then we climbed up the cliff to do a jump of our own. #Viewfinder Caption/Photo: @emilypolar | OutsideOnline.com 2w

outsidemagazine @fred_pompermayer had been monitoring the swells in Fiji for a few years, when, in June 2012, the conditions aligned and he could tell the waves were going to be massive. The swell built during the day and the wind dropped, then switched offshore. It was a lucky day for the big wave surfers who'd come from all over the world and rode the best conditions Cloudbreak had ever seen. Photo: @fred_pompermayer | OutsideOnline.com 2w
