Why are the Joshua Tree's dying? Through a hollowed out section of a dead tree another living Joshua Tree sits in the setting sun. Experts expect the Joshuas to vanish entirely from the southern half of California within a century. The ancient plants are dying in the #JoshuaTree National Park. Already slow and difficult reproducers by nature the Joshua trees are the victim of global warming and its symptoms -- including fire and drought -- plus pollution and the proliferation of non-native species. The #Seussian looking trees are really plants, a relative of the yucca. Joshua trees are a foundation species, providing habitat for other animals that otherwise would disappear. @robertclarkphoto @thephotosociety @instituteartist @natgeo

Hamnoy's Magical light

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.
