Photo by @taylorglenn / A view down Paintbrush Canyon in Grand Teton National Park after an early season storm deposited snow in the high country. I love the contrast created by the newly fallen snow on the peaks against the azure waters of Leigh and Jackson Lakes in the distance. We were caught in this storm the night prior, which provided a unique view of the seasonal transition from fall to winter. Follow @taylorglenn for more from #Wyoming and beyond.

Photo by @Sofia_Jaramillo5 / The sun hits the Tetons early in the morning, casting a pinkish purple hue on the mountain range. The Teton Range is part of the Middle Rocky Mountains in the western United States. The range formed nearly six million years ago. It rises abruptly on the eastern side in Wyoming and more steadily on the western side near Idaho. Gigantic glaciers formed many U-shaped canyons in the range that visitors hike in today.

Photo by @Justin.Jin / A man leaps off a platform into a canal in Copenhagen, the modern, energetic capital of Denmark. The Scandinavian city is built around seawater, giving urbanites plenty of lunchtime swimming possibilities.

Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto / Just seconds before the mountains descend into darkness for the next 10 hours, the 27-meter-long (90-foot-long) suspension bridge of the Ivano Dibona via ferrata is silhouetted against a moody Dolomites sky. Being high in these mountains, perched above a deep gorge on an old and rusty bridge, is nothing short of spooky. However, our feeling of being unnerved must be nothing compared to the emotions felt by soldiers moving through these mountains a hundred years ago. When traveling here late in the day, we risk passing a cold night in the mountains without a sleeping bag—trivial to what they must have risked.

Photo by @daisygilardini / The warm colors of an Antarctic sunrise illuminate this scene. A strong foreground is essential to any successful landscape photograph. We look at things three-dimensionally with our own eyes in real life, but what we see through photography is flattened into a two-dimensional image. In order to enhance depth perception and lend an illusion of a three-dimensional space, one needs a strong foreground to lead the viewer’s eye into the image. In this particular instance, I chose to use the iceberg in the foreground. I took extra advantage of the iceberg’s complementary colors in order to lead the eye into the beautiful sunrise reflection and ice field in the background.

Photo by @dina_litovsky / Two young women walk through scaffolding in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank in the background. In recent years the grand building has been converted to an event space but has stood closed since the start of the pandemic. For more images of night in NYC, follow me @dina_litovsky.

Photo by @francescolastrucci / A cargo ship floats from the Port of Livorno toward the sunset off Tuscany’s Tyrrhenian coast. Livorno has grown through the centuries along with the industrial nature of the port, one of Italy’s biggest. Its origins date back to the ancient world, though its development as we know the city today took place in the past few centuries. The Medicis started to shape the city and since then it has been a melting pot for different cultures, which have forged its unique, genuine, and charming identity.

Photo by @stephen_matera / The moon rises over the central Cascade Range at dusk in Washington. Catching the nearly full moon rising at dusk is simply a matter of being in a location with an open view opposite of where the sun sets the day before the official full moon.

Photo by @deeptiasthana / Nestled amid the snowcapped Himalaya of Kashmir, Gurez was once part of the ancient Silk Route connecting Kashmir with Kashgar in modern-day China. In its heyday, sometime during the 12th century, the valley was known as Dardistan, after the Dard-Shin community who call it home. The girls and women have very limited opportunities for higher education and work. In this photograph girls are seen playing volleyball in the school compound.
