 Photo by @MartinEdstrom / Some people vacation at fancy hotels. Others stick to floating wood cabins without electricity. I'm probably more of the latter. This particular floating cabin rests on Lake Eldan in Värmland, Sweden. Follow @MartinEdstrom for more stories on nature travel in the Nordics. #sweden #ExploringHome #lakeside #woodcabin

  Photo by Keith Ladzinski @ladzinski / Sherpas and climbers throw rice toward an altar at the foot of Mount Everest's Advanced Base Camp during a puja. This ritual is traditionally performed by Buddhists before stepping foot onto the mountain. It's a powerful scene to witness and photograph while standing near the world's tallest peak. #Everest #Puja

 Photo by @DaisyGilardini / Eastern Greenland's Scoresby Sound is one of the biggest fjord systems in the world. Its main body is 110 kilometers (roughly 70 miles) long and spreads out into a series of side fjords and islets that cover some 38,000 square kilometers (roughly 15,000 square miles). The large glaciers found all along these fjords produce a massive amount of icebergs. The icebergs in the fjords are particularly active, as the system creates its own circular gyre currents. As a result, the icebergs are constantly moving as they're flushed out into open water.Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and behind-the-scenes stories. #greenland #scoresbysund #iceberg #alpenglow #conservation

 Video by @bertiegregory / A drip falls from the nose of a male polar bear. Although this male still had a lot of growing to do, the largest male polar bears can weigh 700 kilograms (1,500 pounds)! This curious bear approached us from a distance and then laid down once he got close. After an hour or so of watching us, he decided to move on down the coast.

 Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto / A member of a scientific team collects modern drip water samples, which will be analyzed and used to help interpret the records of the past. The scientists are working in Gunung Mulu National Park on the Malaysian island of Borneo. The team, led by Nele Meckler from the University of Bergen, is working to improve our understanding of tropical climate change over the last 500,000 years.

 Photo by @EnricSala / Kelp forests, which are the largest algae in the ocean, provide the architecture for a thriving marine ecosystem. Growing as tall as 120 feet (37 meters)—sometimes at a rate of a foot a day—the giant kelp (seen here in Cape Horn, Chile) spreads out on the ocean surface to create a forest canopy. Underneath, you’ll find an incredible diversity of marine life, from urchins and sea stars to sea otters. To learn more about our oceans, follow @enricsala.

 Photo by @jimrichardsonng / Since 1822 the Royal Company of Archers has been the official (if ceremonial) bodyguard of the king or queen when they visit (as Queen Elizabeth does every summer). But the history is older than that, going back to the 17th century and relying on ancient law that called for a military mustering known as a wappenschawing—a weapon showing. The crafty Jacobites sought to institutionalize the practice under pretext of recreation. Following those ancient traditions, the Archers gather every year to demonstrate their prowess with a longbow and compete for a host of prizes, equally ancient and steeped in legend—and quirky.

 Photo by Spencer Millsap @Spono / Sunrise hits the hoodoo rock formations of Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. The exposed spires and fin layers have formed over thousands of years as water, ice, and gravity do their jobs along the edge of the Claron Formation. The formation's layers shimmer and expose a multitude of incredible colors when viewed in the right light. #BryceCanyonNationalPark #Hoodoos #Utah

 Photo by @chiaragoia / Wine and olive oil producer Bruno Lenardon walks through his property on the border of Italy and Slovenia. His family's land, including the home where he still lives today, was taken by Yugoslavia when the new border was established at the end of World War II. The border happened to almost cut in half their property, including the house. The whole family had to relocate for six months until they were able to take back the entire house. For the land, Lenardon had to wait until Slovenia joined the European Union in 2004, and only then was he able to rent it back. Today Lenardon is a respected winemaker, and he carries out old traditions of vineyard farming learned from his grandfather. This portrait was taken during an assignment about the city of Trieste, which you can read about in this month's issue of National Geographic magazine. For more images and behind-the-scenes videos, check my stories @chiaragoia.

 Photo by @stephen_matera / Glacier lilies and the Olympic Mountains are seen at sunset in Olympic National Park, Washington. The park was created in 1938 and contains an incredible diversity of terrain including rocky coast, temperate rainforest, old-growth forest, rocky alpine, and massive glaciers. Ninety-five percent of Olympic National Park is wilderness. Follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from Washington and around the world. #OlympicNationalPark #wildflowers

 Photo by @amritachandradas / A shopkeeper relaxes at the back of his rattan furniture store in George Town, Penang, Malaysia. While weaving through the streets of George Town, I found myself getting a quick education in the history of Penang. Each and every building told a story through its beautifully weathered structures and unique ornamentation. Please follow me @amritachandradas for more insight into my work.

 Photos by @taylorglenn / Here are a few aerial views of Western Lake (and Grayton Beach State Park), a very interesting coastline feature found in the Panhandle of Florida. Along this stretch there are a small number of coastal dune lakes, which are bodies of freshwater separated from the Gulf of Mexico by small strips of crystal white sand dunes. The colors, shapes, and textures of the landscape make for a unique scene from the air, especially as the darker freshwater contrasts with the tropical hues of the gulf. There are only a few places in the world where dune lakes like this exist. Follow @taylorglenn for more from Florida and beyond.  #30A #AerialPhotography #Florida
