Photo by @renan_ozturk // Yaks on the the long road home from Everest basecamp.  The lulling sound of their bells the fresh snow fall and the lack of trekkers in this moment is what makes this simple phone photo special to me. 
And the fact that our film set out to tell the story of the highest point on Earth purely from the indigenous Sherpa perspective.  Follow @renan_ozturk for more from the roof of the world.

play_circle_filled Video by @bertiegregory // In an incredible rare predatory event an Antarctic fur seal hunts macaroni penguins on land on the Island of South Georgia in the South Atlantic Ocean. This was hard to watch but I felt it was an important part of the macaroni penguins&amprsquo life story. Giant waves razor sharp rocks mountain climbs and these seals usually hunting the penguin in the water are just a handful of the challenges these penguins must overcome on a daily basis. Only the toughest individuals survive to pass on their genes to the next generation. Brutal as this encounter was there was an unexpected twist watch the whole series of Wild_Life Resurrection Island to find out what happened at natgeo.com/wildlife.

Photo by @max.lowe // To define wild in an experience for me would to be a silent observer to sit and just for a moment quiet your ego and drive in the presence of complex and beautiful life beyond ourselves. Sitting and watching this female Jaguar stalk the banks of the Cuiaba River in Brazil was one of those moments and one I revisit in my mind when I get lost in the noise. To see more from his travels to The Pantanal and Jaguars follow @max.lowe.

When I founded The World at Night TWAN project 12 years ago with an international team of highly experienced night sky photographers one of the main aims was to save the last remaining natural night skies on the planet by photos and stories that tell the values of this essential part of our nature beyond being an astronomer&amprsquos laboratory.  This is one of those places La Palma Canary Islands where the night sky is protected by law against light pollution the extra careless light that doesn&amprsquot illuminates the ground but wastes to the sky. The locals appreciate this preserved heritage too which made their island an icon. 
Here the Milky Way&amprsquos bright core rises over salt production ponds next to the ocean in a single 20-second exposure photograph. This resembles what I was able to see visually there but without the Milky Way&amprsquos . 
Follow me @babaktafreshi for more wonders of our planet&amprsquos nightscape learn more about night sky protection on darksky.org and twanight.org .
