Photo by @FransLanting A rainbow adds a touch of softness to a blustery squall that whipped up the waves off South Georgia Island, but for the millions of seabirds that call this frigid island in the Antarctic home, strong winds are just fine, because they are expert gliders. This giant petrel is one of them, but it’s the legendary albatrosses that are truly masters of the wind. To see them up close follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #SouthernOcean #Seabird #YearoftheBird #Wind #Rainbow #Antarctica at South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands

Photo @chrisburkard The Kayak is one of my favorite modes of transportation because it never seems to be about hurrying from place to place. The Kayak actually originated in Greenland and was used by hunters who trained on them from an early age. The very word ‘kayak’ comes from the Inuit language - Qajaq. To be in this environment traveling in a way they have for many years gave me an extra added connection to the landscape that you cannot get from traveling by boat or foot. at Greenland

Photo by @babaktafreshi The World at Night project The Full Moon rising in twilight above oceanfront in the North Shore of Boston. The moon is super large due to the use of long telephoto lens. It “feels” even larger in this image due to recognizable objects in the foreground, a couple of miles away from the camera. It’s red due to atmospheric refraction, more effective near the horizon. The next full moon is on March 1st. Enjoy the view!

Photo @ladzinski / A pair of #JamesFlamingo’s affectionately intertwining their necks at Bolivia’s thermally active #RedLagoon. The James flamingo is a year round resident of the Andean Plateau, weathering the harsh winter here which can reach temperatures of -30 Fahrenheit. The James flamingo was long thought to be extinct until a small flock was rediscovered in 1956. To see more from this beautiful part of the world please visit @ladzinski at Bolivia

Photo by @taylorglenn // Sunrise at Nankoweap. This is one of the more famous views deep within the Grand Canyon and was inhabited by the Ancestral Puebloans until the year 1200 when mysteriously they disappeared. There are 2 ways to reach this spot, by floating the Colorado river or an arduous hike from the North Rim. Watching the light dance through the canyon is incredible from any vista but it's especially beautiful from deep within these majestic walls. Follow @taylorglenn for more epic landscapes from national parks and beyond. #grandcanyon #arizona #coloradoriver #travel #rivertrip at Grand Canyon National Park

But when the wind is whipping up the ocean, blowing storms from Antarctica, it’s probably best to stay away from this aptly named spot in Coffin Bay National Park. // Touring world-famous wine regions and cage diving with sharks are just a few adrenaline-pumping activities on our bucket list.

Stretching endlessly for miles these reefs surround the 1,225 islands and islets that make up this island nation. With land making up less than 0.01% of the country, it truly is a spectacular water world that is definitely worth visiting.
