Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | A horse-drawn carriage in the streets of the Palazzo Reale district (also known as Albergheria), the historic center of Palermo, Italy. The Romans, Arabs, and Normans all left their mark on the picturesque Sicilian capital, where boisterous back streets and open-air markets collide to create a joyous sense of anarchy.

Photo by @stephen_matera | A pair of curious mountain goat kids play in the Tenmile Range, Colorado. These goats were hanging out near the trailhead and kept us entertained for a while. Mountain goats range from Colorado through the Northern Rockies, the Cascade Mountains, and up into Alaska. The Tenmile Range is a subrange of the Rocky Mountains near the town of Breckenridge. Follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from Colorado and around the world. #wilderness #wildlife #colorado #rockymountains

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto | A drone image looking straight down at Waiāhole Beach Park on the east shore of Oahu near Waikane. Drones have revolutionized photography on some level. We now have relatively inexpensive tools to get wild and crazy perspectives, though with that ease comes huge responsibility. Know your limits and know where you can fly and where you can't. #hawaii #waiaholebeach #oahu

Photo by @jonathankingston | Expedition leader Jimmy White explores a cave on the island of Makatea in the Tuamotu Archipelago of French Polynesia.  The name of the island is derived from the drinking water being brought out of caves like this one by local residents. “Ma,” indicates clear water and “Atea” indicates the light of day – with the “K” thrown in between the two words to make the resulting phrase “Ma-K-Atea” sound pleasing to the ear.  For many years the island was the site of a large phosphate mining operation that produced hundreds if not thousands of hand dug pits.  The mine was abandoned in 1964, but an unsuspecting visitor could easily fall into the pits while walking through the thick underbrush that has reclaimed the land.  The cave is filled with more helictites – a twig like stalactite – than I have ever seen. The pool is illuminated with underwater dive lights.

Photo by @coryrichards | As an alpinist, I find most of my travels are in neighboring villages to the mountains. The moments of being immersed in culture is a major part of what keeps me coming back to these mountains and places. These moments - the vulnerable and the intimate ones -  the moment where the subject is in their internal space so deeply that it is expressed externally - are what keep bringing me back to the lens as a @natgeo photographer.

photo_library Photo by @ErikaSkogg | Berber villages and crumbling kasbahs blend into the red rock formations along the Dadès Gorge of Morocco’s Great Oasis Valley. Known as the ‘Road of 1,000 Kasbahs’, Berber populations have settled among these fig and date oases for hundreds of years since royal dynasties and caravans traversed these Saharan trading routes. #Morocco #DadesGorge

Photo by @BabakTafreshi | On this starry night of May at an elevation of 2,000 meters (6,000 ft) on La Palma in the Canary Islands, I felt like I walked into a science fiction scene. These giant flowers, when in full bloom, look like nothing else on Earth. They are
