Photo by @Pau@PaulNicklen // As glaciers melt and move, moraines are formed, which are ridges of glacial debris that accumulate on the sides of these massive ice forms. The contrasting colours of glacial ice and moraines paint the landscape in the Ice Fields in Kluane National Park, Yukon. The park contains the Kaskawalsh glacier, which continues to shrink and recede just like the other 98% of glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for photos from the Arctic and Antarctic. #Yukon #glacier #climatechange #photography

Photo by @kevinfaingnaert // An abandoned ski hut up high on the disappeared Chacaltaya glacier near La Paz in Bolivia. What Chacaltaya lacks in latitude, it makes up for in elevation. The ski hut is located at 17,785-feet (that’s higher than the Mt. Everest base camp). The 18.000 year old glacier used to be the highest ski run in the world, but melted completely away in 2009 due to climate change. It stays a popular place for trekking near La Paz. #bolivia #southamerica

Photo by @jon@jonathan_irish // One of the things I love about photography is standing shoulder to shoulder with other people who have the same passion as mine and sharing an incredible experience together. I love talking about photography during these times...what cameras we have, what setting we are using, what filters, what other locations are good, what’s the weather going to do, where we saw wildlife last, yada yada yada. I love it. All of it. Keep it coming. Let’s get deep into it and come out better together. I have an equal appreciation of shooting on my own..there’s a time and place to be quiet and solo with one’s passion, and I generally do much more solo shooting than groups. But those times where you are shooting a famous location (like oxbow bend in Grand Teton pictured here) and there’s photogs everywhere around, or when I am teaching in workshops, I love it too. I’ve met so many interesting and cool people (and a fair share of not so cool people) while standing shoulder to shoulder during a shoot. I still keep in touch with and consider many people I’ve met, perhaps for only 15 minutes sometimes, good friends. And if we have yet to cross paths, I hope to see you out on the trail someday fulfilling your passion. Follow me @jonathan_irish for more images like this and around the world.

Photo by @bab@babaktafreshi The World at Night project A couple of nights ago in a remote corner of the Death Valley, California, one of the driest places on the planet and a vast Dark Sky Park, where natural night is protected from light pollution. Stars of Orion, the Hunter, are the icons of the winter sky, next to Sirius, the brightest star in the Earth night sky. The yellow glow on the horizon, from the surprising distance of 150 miles, is the light of Los Angeles. Follow me @babaktafreshi for photos that take you from the Earth to the universe. #twanight #deathvalley #nightphotography #climate #nationalpark @natgeoimagecollection

Photo by @Fra@FransLanting This is the time of year when the next generation of newborn emperor penguins gets its first look of the world beyond the belly feathers of their parents. They shelter them on their feet to keep the chicks from freezing on the sea ice where they gather. But it’s the melting of that sea ice that may become of a bigger problem for their survival. As Antarctica’s ice edge fractures under the influence of global warming emperor penguins are going to become symbols of vulnerability just like polar bears are that already for the Arctic. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more images of emperors. @LeonardodiCapriofdn #Antarctica #Penguins #Planet #Climatechange #Earth
