Happy New Year! To welcome the year of the goat, I’d like to share this view of The Great Wall of China the morning after a rare winter snow fall. I was in Yunnan Province when I received word of the snow, and drove like mad to the nearest airport, caught a redeye to Beijing, and climbed the wall before sunrise. 90% of photography is being in the right place at the right time. Share the view with a friend and tag @geosteinmetz on assignment for National Geographic magazine.

Photograph by @paulnicklen When being chased by Leopard Seals, Emperor Penguins reach such great velocities underwater and consequently great heights when exiting the frigid Ross Sea that it looks like they are truly trying to fly. However, they are just throwing their flippers out for balance. They hit the sea ice with such force that often, these 60 to 90 pound birds knock the air out of themselves. They quickly shake it off and begin their 10 mile hike back to the colony to feed their awaiting chicks. Please follow me this week on @paulnicklen as I post a series of my favorite polar wildlife species #wildlife #nature @ElPlanetaPhoto #gratitude #penguins #beauty @natgeocreative @thephotosociety

We'd like to see your #sunrise and #sunset photos. Submit yours to #GuardianWitness and we'll #repost and feature the best. Simon Gray sent this shot of the sunrise over the pier at #Cromer in #Norfolk, England. witness.theguardian.com

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - During last months @NatGeo photographers seminar in DC, fellow NGM photographer @BrianSkerry told me that there is still a staggering 95% of the underwater world that remains unexplored. A huge volume of ocean left to examine and make new discoveries. Underground however, nobody knows what percentage of caverns remain unexplored, as we cannot see them from the surface. Pictured above, deep below ground in China’s Wulong County, a cave explorer swims into the unknown.

Here’s your cute moment for the day: A baby desert tortoise hatches from its egg. Found north and west of the #ColoradoRiver in the #MojaveDesert in California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah, the desert tortoise is one of most elusive inhabitants of the desert, spending up to 95 percent of its life underground. With domed shell and elephant-like legs, it is easily distinguishable from its turtle cousins. Photo by U.S. Geological Survey (@usgs) scientist K. Kristina Drake.

An entire fleet of Chevrolet Corvettes, 44 of them to be exact, sweep down Lake Shore Drive near the Chicago River en route to the General Motors Motorama at the International Amphitheatre in April of 1954. This was a year after their 1953 debut. Photo by Bill Allison of the Chicago American. #vintagechicago #chevycorvette #1953corvette #lakeshoredrive #motorama

Last week, we asked you to capture the golden hour. The photos we saw were #breathtaking — from the #warm reds and oranges that shone through beautiful #landscapes to the portraits shot against soft light. Our guest host, @homemade_, selected his favorite submissions — click the link in our profile to see them. Here’s one of the great shots by @shannnaya. ☀️

Photo by @davidalanharvey. Rio de Janeiro. Botofogo Bay taken from Corcovado ( Christ statue) on a full moon. Rio has been a wellspring of work for me for the last few years. I cannot get enough. Both the culture and the landscape beckon. My new book upcoming "BeachGames" will feature both in a tale that goes beyond my 2012 feature in NatGeo. When photographers get locked on to a subject where they just can't stop shooting, they should not stop shooting!!! Viva Rio! #beachgames #rio #brazil #moon #botofogo #burnmagazine
