Photo by Matt Borowick @mborowick | Mount Batur, one of the many active volcanoes in Indonesia, is located on the small but beautiful island of Bali. This area has incredible hiking and water activities, and there are many small villages surrounding Lake Batur at the base of the volcano.

Photo by @bertiegregory | A female harp seal hangs in an icy alleyway under her breathing hole in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada. Above the surface on this piece of ice floe she has a tiny, five-day-old pup. Each day the ice changes dramatically as tides and ocean currents break up and re-form the packing. Even so, this female is able to navigate with unbelievable precision to find her breathing hole and her pup.

Photo by @chrisburkard | To say we got lucky with the weather on the Kuril Islands would be an understatement. The climate typically consists of long, cold, and stormy winters and short summers with copious amounts of thick fog. But this experience quickly began to feel like a fairy tale. The sun set behind the islands and the light shifted, changing the landscape and bringing out the true beauty of this place. This view, looking into the caldera of Ushishir, was by far my favorite.

Photo by @joshuacogan | Branches of cherry blossoms are photographed at night as fallen petals float in the Tidal Basin of Washington, D.C. This year, because of COVID-19, people were asked to stay away from the iconic blooming trees for public safety. I am sharing this image from another year so that people may still enjoy them.

Photo by @jimmychin | The shifting clouds coming off the Patagonian Ice Cap provide a dramatic reveal of the Torre group. To go or not to go. To commit or not to commit. These are existential questions of life and climbing in the mountains.

Photo by @DaisyGilardini | Gentoo penguins inhabit the Antarctic Peninsula in great numbers. Even though penguins belong to the bird family, they can’t fly. But they’re fast and elegant in the water, and they use their flippers as wings to seemingly fly when underwater. Outside the water, though, they’re clumsy and cumbersome.
I captured this image using an underwater case for my DSLR camera. By holding the camera over the side of the Zodiac boat, hanging halfway in the water, I was lucky enough to capture both worlds.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | The sun shines above the Painted Wall, as seen from the Cedar Point overlook on the south rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison near Montrose, Colorado. The canyon is one of the most rugged national parks in the United States—and one of the least visited. Just getting down to the river is an epic feat. Nevertheless, it is a spectacular canyon with dozens of viewpoints. #blackcanyon #colorado

Photo by @sarahyltonphoto | I took this during an early morning walk in the Nilgiri Hills, Tamil Nadu, India. The region, with a hospitable altitude and climate, produces some of the best teas I've had the pleasure of consuming.
