@argonautphoto (Aaron Huey) on assignment photographing the slot canyons of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah.  Most of these slot canyons require some climbing - to get both in and out and to move through many sections (the surface is not marked up in the process, and climbing in them is allowed). Rain and flooding are constantly eroding and sculpting these sandstone waves.  Follow @argonautphoto in the coming days for video and stills documenting more of these slots and other #PublicLands around the American West! #Escalante #NationalMonument #SlotCanyons photo by Drew Ludwig

Photo by @pedromcbride // Winter Light is fleeting inside Grand Canyon, but also soft and magical - especially in the hidden side canyons. I was delighted to share the story of our 750-mile traverse of this iconic national park on @natgeochannel last Thursday. My feature film #IntotheGrandCanyon is now available for streaming on the @natgeo app. To see more, #followme @pedromcbride #intothecanyon #grandcanyon #centennial #nature #petemcbride

Photo by @PaulNicklen // A black-browed albatross heads out to sea as it glides over thousands of chirping nests on Steeple Jason Island, which hosts the largest colony of these birds in the world. With a wing-span of up to 8 feet, black-browed albatross are excellent aviators and will sometimes travel up to 200 miles in one trip to feed on krill, fish, and squid. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for more photos of animals from around the world. #albatross #wingspan #island #nature #photography

Photo by @max.lowe I A lone monk walks across a silent courtyard at the Meiji Jingu Shinto shrine near Shibuya Tokyo. My last day in the city before I flew out I woke before the sunrise and wandered the forested pathways of Yoyogi Park, finding myself in the shrine just as the sun broke the sky. My few hours there alone wandering midst the massive old trees, observing the monks going about their chores was one of the most memorable and simple experiences of my time in the country.

Photo by @lucalocatelliphoto | Three telescopes of the Deimos Sky Survey, based in Spain, watch for close asteroids and man-made space debris that could damage satellites, as an airplane streaks across the sky. Noelia Sánchez Ortiz, an aerospace engineer, and Jaime Nomen, an astronomer and the head of the observatory, monitor the instruments.

Photo by @kevinfaingnaert // The future is bright for the city of light. Eindhoven is the #Netherlands fifth largest city, a modern metropolis built up around a famous light bulb and lamp manufacturer. Eindhoven is a vibrant centre for creative design and post-industrial reinvention. There's a highly thought-provoking modern-art gallery and a UFO-shaped quirk of 1960s architecture. It's also notable for its connection to Vincent Van Gogh, who lived and painted in the nearby village of Nuenen.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // Travelling by skis across the Alps is the best way to see this wonderful mountain landscape. We took advantage of the fine weather we’re experiencing at the moment and made a ski tour up to Wörgegratspitze in Kühtai.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // From Yellowstone to Hawaii. This month’s travel schedule is a study in contrasts for me. From full on winter to shorts and T-Shirts. While waiting for waves here on the north shore of Oahu I visited the incredible Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden near Kaneohe, Hawaii. Even though I have been to Hawaii a dozen times or more somehow I have never been to Ho’omaluhia before - it is absolutely stunning. #hoomaluhia #hawaii #oahu

Photo by @PaulNicklen // This view through a melting iceberg is a window to the changing land and seascape in Svalbard, Norway. When the landscape is covered in snow and ice, a significant portion of the sun’s energy reflects off these light-coloured surfaces. However, as ice melts and the dark-coloured ground, or ocean, become exposed, warming is amplified as these surfaces are unable to reflect the energy and will instead absorb it. This once icy realm has succumbed to the consequences of global warming, and like most other Arctic areas, sees less and less ice every year. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for more photos of #Arctic landscapes. #iceberg #Norway #climatechange #nature #photography
