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

"Above the throng of visitors and looking down, I was overcome with a rush of exhilaration — uncertain if that was from the beauty or the height!"

Our final capture from #lonelyplanet contributing photographer @footloosefotography (Andrew Peacock). For more of Andrew's fantastic images check out his feed, and the link in his bio for his full site. "This bird is one of 'Darwin's finches', these endemic birds of the Galapagos were highly significant in the development of the theory of natural selection. The most important differences between species are in the size and shape of their beaks, and the beaks are highly adapted to different food sources such as cacti in the case of the Cactus finch." - Andrew Learn more about this part of the world by clicking the link our bio and searching 'Galapagos'. #GenovesaIsland #travel #nature

The Trichroic Nebula.

Photo by @jonathankingston My home in central Oregon is the land of the evergreens; of ponderosa pines and sage, of juniper and lavender. What a pleasant surprise to find a grove of aspens in full fall splendor! @natgeocreative

#LonelyPlanet writer, @raubontheroad, is currently on the road in #Brazil where he snapped this stunning shot of the ocean peeking through a gap in the sand dunes of #CanoaQuebrada. The coast southeast of Fortaleza has many fine beaches, a lot of them backed by dunes, but is increasingly developed and built up. It's not until you reach the environs of Canoa Quebrada, 140km from the city, that the coast starts to regain its natural majesty. Once a tiny village cut off from the world by its huge, pink sand dunes and beloved of early hippie travelers, Canoa Quebrada today has shifted towards a more family-oriented beach spot, and it's a favorite destination of daily van tours from Fortaleza. But the craggy, eroding sand cliffs and the large dune expanses still lend Canoa that elemental, otherworldly feel for which it's famous. With numerous good pousadas and restaurants, and varied outdoor activities easily available, it's an enjoyable spot to relax for a few days. #travel

Hanging with my fish friends under the sea yesterday. The water temperatures in Southern California are still way up due to El Niño tropical storm conditions. At 72-74 degrees, the kelp forests still haven't had the opportunity to grow back from last year as the kelp can't survive in such warm temperatures. #underwater #freediving #california ____________ seanenschimages.com seanensch(at)gmail.com for prints ________________________________________
