A gorgeous shot of first light over Long Pine Key Lake at the Everglades #NationalPark in #Florida. The largest subtropical wilderness in the U.S., the #Everglades is known for its unique mangrove forests. This week, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell is visiting the Everglades to see the progress in restoring historic water flows as well as new challenges such as invasive species that threaten the park's ecosystem.

#DelicateArch glows during #sunset at Arches #NationalPark in #Utah. @ArchesNPS is home to more than 2,000 natural stone arches -- in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks -- that are unlike any other in the world.

The views of #GreatSmoky Mountains #NationalPark's stunning vistas are breathtaking. #Sunrise photo from Newfound Gap by Dee Langevin (www.sharetheexperience.org).

This magical place is Big Bend #NationalPark in Far West #Texas. With an elevation ranging from less than 1,800 feet along the Rio Grande to nearly 8,000 feet in the #Chisos Mountains, #BigBend includes massive canyons, vast desert expanses, forested mountains and an ever-changing river. Here you can explore one of the last remaining wild corners of the United States. Photo by Erik A. Walker.

This week-end's #lpinstatakeover is by intrepid #lonelyplanet writer and photographer @stuartbutler1974. The picture: a chimpanzee in Kibale Forest Uganda, #Africa. The story behind it: "I first visited Uganda’s Kibale forest some 20yrs ago when a project was just getting under way to habituate some of the forests many chimpanzees to a human presence. Back then I got only the most fleeting of glimpses of the chimps. Years later I returned in order to spend a full day in the forest with a ranger learning about his work and seeing the chimps up close. It was hard to believe how nonchalant the chimps were in our presence and I photographed this one from just a few metres away as it lazed in a tree. I’ve visited all the major chimp reserves in East Africa and I think Kibale might be my favourite." - Stuart Butler Stay tuned to our feed for more photos to come over the week-end from Stuart.

Such an inspiring sunset from Brazil. Over the next few weeks we will shine some awesomeness on you by posting lusciuos sunsets from all over Brazil. This photo was taken by André @maceira of Calhau Beach (Maranhao).

TelescopeCollects Its 100-Millionth Image: an instrument on our Solar Dynamics Observatory captured its 100 millionth image of the sun. The instrument is the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly, or AIA, which uses four telescopes working parallel to gather eight images of the sun – cycling through 10 different wavelengths -- every 12 seconds. In the almost five years since its launch on Feb. 11, 2010, SDO has provided images of the sun to help scientists better understand how the roiling corona gets to temperatures some 1000 times hotter than the sun's surface, what causes giant eruptions such as solar flares, and why the sun's magnetic fields are constantly on the move. This is a processed image of SDO multiwavelength blend from Jan. 19, 2015, the date of the spacecraft's 100th millionth image release. Credit: NASA/SDO #nasa #sun #sdo #telescope #science

A Black-necked Stork in flight by @TimLaman shot air-to-air from a helicopter flown by the very talented pilot known as Bungie, using a 400 mm lens. This bird has a 2.3m (90 inch) wingspan! Location is the Piccaninny Plains Sanctuary of the @AustralianWildlifeConservancy, a spectacular wilderness area on the #CapeYork peninsula, #Australia.

Rio de Janeiro - Ipanema

Photo taken by @stevemccurryofficial // Two men try to cross a monsoon-swollen river after the bridge has been washed away, Goa, India. The monsoon season usually begins in June and lasts for three months. Farmers wait for the rains to come, and watch the fields come back to life after being parched for almost half the year.

Tonight, a #longexposure shows the glow from a Noctiluca scintillans algal bloom along the seashore in #HongKong. The luminescence, also called #SeaSparkle, is triggered by farm pollution that can be devastating to marine life and local fisheries, according to University of Georgia oceanographer Samantha Joye. #China (Image: AP Photo, Kin Cheung)
