Photo by @stephen_matera / A winter morning near Fruita in Capitol Reef National Park, Utah. Fall and winter are great times of year to visit Capitol Reef and avoid the scorching heat of summer. Capitol Reef was established as a national park in 1964, but State Highway 24 is the only paved road through the park. Much of the rest of the park is accessible by dirt road with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.

Video by Muhammed Muheisen @mmuheisen / I captured this time-lapse video on November 3 as the sun was setting over the Argolic Gulf in the Greek island of Hydra. I enjoyed watching this breathtaking scene while visiting the island.

Photo by Luján Agusti @lujanag / In 2016 I began a project on the payasos danzantes (dancing clowns), a tradition from the towns of Xico and Coatepec in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. People of all ages gather to dance dressed as clowns, generally for religious reasons or as a promise to the Virgin of Guadalupe. Follow me @lujanag to learn more about this and other stories.

Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto / The sun sets over the royal necropolis of the southern capital of the Kingdom of Kush. The steep-sided pyramids were built over the burial chambers of the rulers. These pyramids were infamously plundered by Italian explorer Giuseppe Ferlini in 1834.

Photos by @emilypolar / The village of Bandipur is located in the southern hills of the Mahabharat Range in Nepal. Charming in its Newar architecture and culture, this sleepy village has become quite the popular tourist destination. To see more of the magnificence in the mundane, follow me @emilypolar.

Photo by @daisygilardini / It’s really challenging to describe the feeling of freedom while cruising the southern extent of the Gulf of Boothia among ice floes and a beautiful sunrise. The mesmerizing seascape, with the cold blues of the ice and the warm glow of the early sunrise, gave me a sense of serenity I have only experienced in the polar regions. Photographically speaking, the combination of complementary colors adds vibrancy and depth to the image.

Photo by Matt Borowick @mborowick / Soft sunset light is draped over a still and pristine canyon at Caprock Canyons State Park and Trailway. The park has over 90 miles (145 kilometers) of trails to explore by foot or bike, and it is worth the adventure if you happen to be in West Texas.

Photo by @ciriljazbec / Ladakh, a high plateau at the northern tip of India beyond the Himalaya, is under attack. The enemy is cutting off its water sources and drying its farmlands. Desperate farmers, who long raised pashmina goats, wheat, and barley on the arid land, are fleeing to Leh, a city on the Indus River. Written by the great @aratikumarrao. Follow @ciriljazbec to see more photos.

Photo by @joshuacogan / Off the Pacific coast near Mendocino, California, the large monoliths that formed from eons of erosion provide good material for me to meditate on our brief humanity. They are also an immense amount of fun to photograph during our time here on Earth. For more images of the Pacific coast and adventures throughout the world, follow me @joshuacogan.

Photo by @Jonathan_irish / This Canada lynx in Montana was not quite sure if I was a friend or foe. However, she did trust me long enough to let me take a photo (or a thousand) before retreating back into the wild. It was a brief but beautiful encounter. #Montana
