Our satellites stare at Typhoon #Phanfone's large eye: We captured data on Typhoon Phanfone as it continues to strengthen as it moves through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM satellite flew over Typhoon Phanfone on Oct. 2, 2014 at 5:39 a.m. EDT. The rainfall pattern observed using TRMM's Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) data showed that Phanfone was much better organized than a day earlier. Image Credit

@paulnicklen #onassignment for @natgeo with @cristinamittermeier. @mickmitty swims through a magic curtain of liquid sunshine in Mexico's Quintana Roo. After doing many 4 hour long cave dives on my #Rebreather for an upcoming story on First Americans, I had to let my body tissue recover from too much oxygen and nitrogen. So, what does one do on a day off in Mexico? You head to the most beautiful Cenotes in the world with the athletic Mickey Mittermeier and get lost in a liquid world where you feel like you are flying through space. #adventure #life #beauty @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #nature #fitness #natureisspeaking @sea_legacy

Photo: @randyolson | It was unexpected to find Larry and his pet brown bear, Coco in Jasper AK. When he bought the restaurant town, the townspeople gathered to thank him for taking over a run down business with pit bulls that scared them. Larry hadn’t told them yet that he had brought a 500-pound cinnamon brown bear with him to live in the back of the restaurant. It was even more unexpected when the bear started to drown Larry and I had to beat him off with a stick. It's the LAST DAY to enter the Your Shot “Unexpected Discoveries” assignment for @natgeo. I’ve seen some unexpected scenes in the contest, but not as many as I hoped that were photos of just turning a corner, minding your own business and something you could never expect unfolds in front of your eyes and your camera. @thephotosociety #nationalgeographic #discovery #onassignment #yourshot #bear #unexpected #arkansas #jasper #latergram #animals #wildlife

_______________________________________ Fiftyshades_of_history is honoured to share one of your amazing images from our tags #fiftyshades_of_history & #fsh_bnw! ________________________________________ Today we present : 🏰✨ @roses_noires ✨🏰 ________________________________________ The Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis, King of France, also called St. Louis Cathedral (French: Cathédrale Saint-Louis, Roi-de-France), is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans and among the oldest cathedrals in the United States. The first church on the site was built in 1718; the third, built in 1789, was raised to cathedral rank in 1793. The cathedral was expanded and largely rebuilt in 1850, with little of the 1789 structure remaining. Saint Louis Cathedral is in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, on the Place John Paul II (French: Place Jean-Paul II), a promenaded section of Chartres Street (rue de Chartres) that stretches one block between St. Peter Street (rue Saint-Pierre) on the upriver boundary and St. Ann Street (rue Sainte-Anne) on the downriver boundary. It is located next to Jackson Square and facing the Mississippi River in the heart of New Orleans, situated between the historic buildings of the Cabildo and the Presbytère. It is one of the few Roman Catholic churches in the United States that fronts a major public square. ________________________________________ Image chosen by @splodgenessabounds ________________________________________ Please keep tagging & supporting 🏰✨ @fiftyshades_of_history ✨🏰 #fiftyshades_of_history #fsh_military #fsh_bnw #fsh_ruined #fsh_monument #fsh_religious #fsh_arches #fsh_beasties ________________________________________ 🏰✨🏰✨🏰 Our other pages are: #fiftyshades_of_nature #fiftyshades_of_darkness #fiftyshades_of_twilight #fiftyshades_of_urbex #fiftyshades_of_amazing
