Hello Smithsonian Instagram followers! I'm Ryan Deboodt (@rdeboodt), a photographer specializing in caves. This week I'll be taking you on a journey through the caves of Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park in Vietnam which includes the world's largest cave, Hang Son Doong. Can't wait! This was the only photo I could find of myself (definitely like being behind the camera and not in front!) of me in a glacier cave on Mt Hood in Oregon.
She may look beautiful, but Earth is in danger. To truly appreciate what's at stake as global temperatures rise, it's necessary to view the wonders of the planet — from #volcanoes to the mysteries of the deep #sea.

Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz A cave on the Jordanian shore of the Dead Sea is lined with a thick layer of salt crystals and stalactites from the splashing of wind-driven wave . The water in the Dead Sea is some of the saltiest in the world, with seven times the salt content of the sea. To get this view, I poked my head down through a hole in the back of the cave at sunset and watched as a solitary drop of salty water to fell to the surface. While most people perceive deserts as wastelands, to me they are exquisitely beautiful places in need of protection. From #DesertAirBook by @geosteinmetz #HolyLand #PromisedLand #WaterCrisis
Photo by Cotton Coulson @cottoncoulson @thephotosociety Early morning Zodiac landing to the remote island of Aldabra, part of the Seychelles Islands off the east coast of Africa. The island is home to the famous Aldabra tortoises. The Aldabra tortoise is the last known survivor of a group of giant tortoises once found on Madagascar and the Seychelles Islands. People over-hunted the other species, wiping them out completely. The Aldabra tortoise almost suffered the same fate: by 1900, the species was hanging on by a thread. Fortunately, the Seychelles government stepped in to protect the remaining Aldabra tortoises. This protection, combined with an international agreement that restricts trade in the species, has helped the reptiles begin to recover. Today there about 100,000 to 150,000 of the reptiles in the wild. They aren't out of the woods yet, though, and are still considered threatened.

Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz Ellis Island on an early winter morning after a few inches of snow. Most of the immigrants entered the main building at the center of this photograph straight from the ships that brought them. They answered twenty-nine questions during a stay of two to five hours, and then were released into America.
