Most of the photographers who contribute to the @Natgeo feed could probably look back on their work and name one or two stories that had been milestones in their careers. For me, the pictures for the book #FridayNightLights was a milestone. It is hard to believe that this book about the culture of f

It may not be blue but it is a bluemoon. When more than one full moon occurs in a month its called "blue" even though it looks like every other full moon. I shot this tonight through my son's telescope with my #lumia640xl phone. Photo by @salvarezphoto #bluemoon #lumiaxnatgeo

Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride // The fist crack of light kisses the Maroon Bells. These 14,000 foots peaks are some of the most photographed mountains in the world, but their view never gets old and thankfully won’t change since they sit within a #wilderness area. Good to back in my home mtns.

@FransLanting I post this in memory of Cecil the Lion, who was recently killed by an American trophy hunter. Cecil lived in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, where he and his pride were well known to countless visitors, just as I knew this handsome male from Botswana. You can sign an online petition

@marcusbleasdale I'm heading deep into the #CARcrisis over the next few months in Central African Republic for @natgeo. This conflict has fallen off the international news agenda, but that doesn't mean people are not suffering or human rights abuses have stopped.

Photograph by @paulnicklen for @natgeo. After a long dive into the cave systems near Tulum, Mexico, we see the light of the cave entrance for the first time in a long time. It is always a refreshing sight but the stunning views inside these intricate and mysterious caves are hard to describe. In
