Is a picture worth getting arrested for? I dunno, but I was handcuffed and thrown in jail when I landed my paraglider about an hour after this picture was taken.

Photo by @gordonwiltsie With warmest memories of the late, mountaineering giant, #AlexLowe, I want to thank again the thousands of people who contributed so generously to support the #Sherpa people he so loved. For more than ten years the Alex Lowe Charitable Fund has been working closely with the Sherpa community, teaching technical mountaineering, aiding families in need, and building a vocational training and cultural center. Every dollar will be wisely spent and I know that Alex would have been so honored. For more information, contact (This picture of Alex was taken on an @natgeo expedition I shared with him to #BaffinIsland, north of the #Arctic Circle in #Canada and appeared in the January 1999 edition.) #Nepal #Himalaya #expeditions #adventure

Photo @ladzinski - #Itatiaia is Brazil's oldest National Park and is part of the Mantiqueira mountain range. The park is home to a range of low valleys, breathtaking views high above and wildly shaped formations. This pumpkin shaped granite block is a perfect example of the stunning erosion that can be seen here. Climbers @kjorgeson and @benrueck taking the path of most resistance up this unique formation. @3stringsproductions @adidasoutdoor @natgeocreative

Photo by @jimmy_chin Ever wake up wondering what's in store for the day? @renan_ozturk wondering about his day during a first ascent attempt on the Shark's Fin in the Garwhal Himalaya. Honored to be speaking on behalf of #NatGeo at #NewFronts in NYC today about exploration, adventure and what's behind the drive to do "firsts." #watchthatfirststep #merufilm @conrad_anker @thephotosociety

Saturn's moon Titan! Titan's south polar vortex mimics the moon itself, creating an elegant crescent within a crescent. Situated above the surrounding polar atmosphere, the raised walls along the sunward side of the vortex just catch the grazing sunlight, creating a crescent of its own. Titan (3,200 miles, or 5,150 kilometers across) is Saturn's largest moon and possesses a dense and dynamic atmosphere. The image, obtained at a distance of approximately 108,000 miles (174,000 kilometers) from Titan, was taken with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on December 2013 using a spectral filter which preferentially admits wavelengths of near-infrared light centered at 939 nanometers.

@paulnicklen on assignment for @natgeo. A #selfie while taking pictures of polar bears in a full on blizzard while wearing white camo is never a very wise idea. I ended up getting the shot but but also gave a bear the opportunity to come up behind me. I have seen over three thousand bears but have never had a bad encounter. #respect #appreciation #nature #wildlife #picoftheday #instagramhub #@natgeocreative @photosociety #humbledbynature

Photo @coryrichards Paleontologist Joe Sertich and Billy Duran walk home via a knife edge ridge in the badlands of the Kaiparowits Formation of Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument, Utah. Exciting new paleontology is being done every season in the remote desert corner of Utah, pulling species new to science from the badlands so frequently it seems that Laramidia, the landmass that exsisted during the late Cretaceous, was a veritable dinosaur factory. The article profiling the exhaustive work being done is in the May ’14 @natgeo. @natgeocreative @3stringsproductions @markstonephoto @andy_mann @thenorthface

Wonders in the Antarctic Sky! In 43 hours across five science flights in late November 2013, NASA's P-3 research aircraft collected more than 20,000 kilometers (12,000 miles) worth of science data. Instruments gathered information about the thickness of the ice over subglacial lakes, mountains, coasts, and frozen seas. The flights over Antarctica were part of Operation IceBridge, a multi-year mission to monitor conditions in Antarctica and the Arctic until a new ice-monitoring satellite, ICESat-2, launches in 2016. This photograph is of a multi-layered lenticular cloud hovering near Mount Discovery, a volcano about 70 kilometers (44 miles) southwest of McMurdo Station on Antarctica's Ross Island.
