A magical #moonrise over #Yosemite National Park in #California. Matt Walker (@rootswalker) captured this night shot -- yes, it’s a night shot -- on Thanksgiving week. It had snowed all day and began clearing around sunset. An hour later, the #fullmoon rose with an intense glow as fog and clouds swirled around #YosemiteValley @yosemitenps. “It was an amazing experience having my 10-year-old son next to me watching this unbelievable moonrise,” says Walker.

Self-concept versus self-image: They may sound like the same thing, but they are worlds apart. Self-concept is an internal perception of ourselves, how we feel about our capabilities, mindset and emotions. Self-image is an external perception of ourselves, how we feel about our body, status and …

Nature photographer Peter Lik is highly renowned in the photography world. You'll be surprised to find out that he's entirely self-taught. Born in Australia, Lik honed his craft since he was 8-years-old when he received his first camera. He has since made several trips to America, creating an …
Photo by @nickcobbing Like these kittiwakes (feeding on a glacial upwelling on Arctic Svalbard), our lives are linked to ice too. Our relatively stable climate is partly supported by consistent Arctic sea ice cover. For our seas and oceans to stay at current levels, relies on the balance between the snow accumulation and melt rate of glacial ice. The Paris climate talks attended by 195 countries have just finished and 150 world leaders have come home, promising to cut carbon emissions. It's up to us to see they keep their promises, for ice, humanity and planet.
When admiring an artistic masterpiece, we often think about the artist behind the work, the medium itself, and perhaps the inspiration behind the work. What we don't typically consider is that we're fortunate enough to actually see what's before us. “There are many people in the world who have …
By Kara Elder<p>, Editorial aide<p>We’re deep into Thanksgiving at WaPoFood headquarters (have you clicked through Thanksgiving Central yet?), but that doesn’t mean the wealth, and price, of pomegranates around us has gone unnoticed. These round, red fruits with the tart edible seeds called arils are in …Pomegranate
All my prayers to my friends, to all of #Paris and those who lost family members and friends last night in the #terroristattacks.

FishFace by @daviddoubilet A curious Maori wrasse peers at his reflection in the large 10 inch glass dome on my housing. These wrasse can reach 5 feet and weigh 400 pounds. They are a rare site on coral reefs because of severe overfishing and live food reef fish trade. They are protected on the #GreatBarrierReef off #Queensland. I will be posting a series of @GreatBarrierReef images this week showcasing the largest coral reef in the world. Shot on assignment with @JenniferHayesig for @natgeo @natgeocreative #funny #fishface #coralreef For #moreocean follow @daviddoubilet

More than 800 rocks, reefs and small islands off the #Washington coast make up #QuillayuteNeedles National #WildlifeRefuge. The refuge was set aside by Teddy Roosevelt in 1907 to protect habitat for struggling seabird populations. Today the islands swell with raucous flocks of migrating seabirds in excess of a million during fall and spring migrations. With a 200-yard buffer zone around each island to protect the wildlife, this @usfws refuge is best enjoyed from the beach with spectacular #sunset views like this one. Photo by Melissa Hahn
Photo by @mattiasklumofficial One of the most diverse and extraordinarily gorgeous marine ecosystems in the World; meet Raja Ampat, Indonesia. By preserving and respecting the remaining beauty on Earth we actually secure long term sustainable success for mankind! Go to @mattiasklumofficial to meet a fish NOT considered the prettiest but for many people the ugliest around... and on top of this it's really quite venomous! The only safe path ahead for humanity is to secure the health of environments like these and to use nature in a more responsible way!

How school shootings catch on.<p>On the evening of April 29th last year, in the southern Minnesota town of Waseca, a woman was doing the dishes when she looked out her kitchen window and saw a young man walking through her back yard. He was wearing a backpack and carrying a fast-food bag and was …Virginia Tech
