play_circle_filled Video by Renan Ozturk @renan_ozturk  Fireworks and other magic from the universe coalesce over Everest at 20000 feet. I actually dont  know what this phenomenon is but fellow photographers tell me it could be &ampquotairglow&ampquot a natural emission from the upper atmosphere near the edge of space also potentially enhanced by sublimating ice crystals. At any rate Im looking forward to seeing the final processed version of this one on a big screen for the @natgeochannel documentary in progress. See @renan_ozturk and the expedition team for more on this #EverestMystery assignment..

Photo by Hannah Reyes Morales @hannahreyesmorales  Plastics line Manila&amprsquos Baseco port area a far cry from the idyllic riverside scenes that inspired poets and painters in the past. I&amprsquove been working with writer and surfer Nicola Sebastian who&amprsquos been exploring how the climate crisis affects Philippine waters and those who inhabit it. She writes 
Here where the Pasig River meets Manila Bay much of the megapolis&amprsquo trash flows into the Philippine Sea. The Philippines is the third worst plastic polluter in the world it is also home to more species of marine life than anywhere else on Earth. This part of Manila is one of the most densely populated places on Earth and coastal communities like this are among the most vulnerable to sea-level rise storm surges and other climate-related disasters. From urban riversides to remote fishing villages to bustling coral reefs life in the Philippine archipelago is deeply interdependent the survival of all is inextricably intertwined not just with the sea but also with the worsening climate crisis.

Photo by Gabriele Galimberti @gabrielegalimbertiphoto  Keynor three years old  Cahuita Costa Rica. Take a moment and think back to your childhood the era in your life when the only thing you knew about a bill was that it was a bird&amprsquos equivalent of lips and your day job was to construct fantastical worlds with your favorite toys. In my Toy Stories series I explore the connection between children and their toys getting an insight into their tiny worlds and taking you on a trip down memory lane. Toy Stories is the result of a 30-month trip in which I visited more than 50 countries and took photographs of children and their favorite toys. I would often take part in a child&amprsquos games prior to arranging the toys for the photograph. Despite some differences I found similarities between children living worlds apart. Even in different countries some children&amprsquos toys had the same function  for example protecting them from dangers and things they feared in the night. Toys haven&amprsquot changed all that much since I was a kid. I&amprsquod often find the kind of toys I used to have. It was nice to go back to my childhood somehow.

Photo by Stephen Wilkes @stephenwilkes  Stonehenge is considered one of the wonders of the world and one of the best known prehistoric monuments in Europe. Late in the afternoon I noticed people dressed in elaborate 18th-century gowns inside the circle. The clouds had almost begun to replicate the physical structure of Stonehenge. All these things came together in the most magical and serendipitous way. 
My Day to Night series began in 2009. From a fixed camera angle I capture fleeting moments of humanity and nature as light passes in front of the lens. I shoot thousands of images through day and night then digitally blend a select group to create a seamless composite image. To see more photos from my travels near and far follow me @stephenwilkes.

Photo by David Chancellor @chancellordavid  Gabra house northern Kenya. The Gabra a nomadic tribe of 31000 people occupy territory east of Lake Turkana in Kenya along the edge of the Chalbi Desert extending to Ethiopia. For the Gabra living in balance with a trying environment requires that they protect land animal and fellow Gabra. Thus they practice certain food and plant taboos preserve full-grown trees called &ampquotkorma&ampquot bulls and revere pregnant women and pregnant animals. As resource managers they migrate to the highlands during the rainy season to allow the dry-season pasture to replenish its water resources taking homes livestock and all possessions with them. Perhaps most symbolic of the Gabras identity is the proverb &ampquota poor man shames us all.&ampquot Since mutual support is imperative for their survival as nomads no Gabra are allowed to go hungry go without animals or be refused hospitality or assistance. A person who refuses to help others is labeled &ampquotal baku&ampquot a stigma that stays affixed to the family for generations. #withbutterfliesandwarriors #northernkenya #kenya #conservation #fightingextinction.
