A view of #Manhattan from the Roof Garden at the @metmuseum. @angelfranco_nyt visited the museum to photograph an installation by the French Conceptualist Pierre Huyghe. The work was commissioned for the museum’s annual Roof Garden show, and includes uprooted paving stones, a large boulder and a massive fish tank. Ken Johnson, who reviewed the installation for @nytimes, asked the question: “What’s it all about?” The artist offers this explanation in the @metmuseum booklet: “Walking through Central Park, you realize that all events there — the stone, the frozen lake, the plane overhead, the maintenance worker — are equally necessary. The important thing is not necessarily the big event.”
I was just a kid on a semester-long break from college when I snapped this shot of Kevin Gallagher #climbing a line on a rare 900-foot wall in the remote desert of Northern #Mexico. Since I was shooting on #film, I had no idea what I’d captured till I got back to my dorm room. This was one of those shots that meant so much to me back then. It helped give me the courage to go out there and try to turn my passion for photography into a business. #StoryBehindtheImage #RockClimbing #Silhouette #LosRemotos @NikonUSA #NikonNoFilter #SanDiskStories @sandisk @novusselect
They're the nervous system of America, crisscrossing their way through its varied #landscape. But for the most part, #highways are a means to an end, often overlooked despite their long history and the incredible impact. U.S. Highway 93 is one of those roads. Soon it will be destroyed. Check out an amazing #photoessay documenting America’s last highway. #Travel (Image: @stuartpalley)
Photo by @BrianSkerry A bottlenose dolphin ‘crater feeds’ in the Bahamas. In this location, this species of dolphin has created a unique feeding strategy in which they use echolocation (sonar) to find fish hiding beneath the sand. Once a fish is found, they invert their bodies and dig down to grab the fish in their mouth. One of the ways researchers know that dolphins are smart is by studying their creative feeding strategies. Check out the May issue of @natgeo for the latest info in our story about dolphin intelligence! @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #dolphins #bahamas #animalminds #smartanimals #marinemammals #NikonAmbassador #subal
Photo by @haarbergphoto (Erlend Haarberg) The snow is still deep in the Norwegian mountains, but it is melting and the days are getting longer. This is the mating season of the mountain #hare (Lepus timidus) and they are much more active than usual as they are looking for a potential mate. Love makes them blind (as we say it in #Norway), therefore chances are better to see these shy, nocturnal animals in this period than normal. @thephotosociety
Here’s an amazing photo of some of the tallest trees in the world to celebrate #ArborDay! 🌲🌳🌲 #Redwood National and State Parks in #California protect forests, vast prairies, oak woodlands, wild riverways, and nearly 40 miles of pristine coastline as part of the ancient coast #redwoodforest ecosystem. But most visitors come to see the majestic #redwoods, which can exceed 300 feet in height. Photo by Jessica Watz (www.sharetheexperience.org).
Photo taken by @stevemccurryofficial in Cambodia // The man playing with the young pup is the temple's caretaker. The once-glorious building has been left in the condition in which it was discovered. Over time, the thick roots of the jungle trees have become entwined with the building to the point that they appear one and the same.
#WhiteSands #NationalMonument in #NewMexico is one of the world's great natural wonders. Here, great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dune field of brilliant snow-white sand. This photo of a double #rainbow over the park was taken just at #sunset as a rain storm let up. Photo by Raymond Lee (www.sharetheexperience.org).
Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Two scientific explorers descend into the icy depths of a moulin on the Gorner Glacier, Switzerland. The freshly exposed rock above the glacier on the left-hand side shows how the ice has melted under an increasingly warm world. These explorers are mapping the changes taking place beneath the surface. Their work must be carried out at night because high daytime temperatures create vast amounts of melt water making exploration difficult and dangerous. @natgeoadventure
The English author Thomas Hardy made his world in Dorset, on the south coast of #England. Hardy called this region “Wessex,” using the area’s Saxon name. It was, in his words, a “partly real, partly dream” country. @andyhaslamphoto captured that idea in this image for a story tracing Hardy’s literary footsteps through Dorset. The @nytimestravel writer David Shaftel was interested in seeing the pastoral landscapes that Hardy described — like the one shown here. “Since Dorset is relatively unspoiled by modern development,” he writes, “it isn’t hard to imagine, with a squint of the eyes, the countryside as Hardy saw it.” #regram from @nytimestravel
Right from his own balcony in Piekary Slaskie, Poland, amateur photographer Bartosz Wojczynski was able to capture thousands of extraordinary lunar photos. After 28 minutes of diligent work, Wojczynski had skillfully captured 32,000 separate images with only a Celestron C9.25 telescope, a …Photography
