Mount Rainier at Sunset

The photo was taken by reddit user rabid, who captured the east side of the mountain from his window seat on an airplane.

Mount Rainier is a large stratovolcano located 54 miles (87 km) southeast of Seattle. It is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the Cascade Volcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft (4,392 m).

A Giant Cat Nap

Nick set out to create an archetypal image that would express both the essence of lions and how we visualize them – a picture of a time past, before lions were under such threat. Here, the five females of the Vumbi pride – a ‘formidable and spectacularly cooperative team’ – lie at rest with their cubs on a kopje (a rocky outcrop), in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.

Shortly before he took the shot, they had attacked and driven off one of the two pride males. Now they were lying close together, calmly sleeping. They were used to Nick’s presence – he’d been following them for nearly six months – which meant he could position his vehicle close to the kopje. Making use of a specially made hole in the roof, he slowly stood up to frame the vista, with the Serengeti plains beyond and the dramatic late-afternoon sky above. He photographed them in infrared, which he says, ‘cuts through the dust and haze, transforms the light and turns the moment into something primal, biblical almost’.

The chosen picture – and Nick believes that the creation of a picture is as much in the choice as the taking – speaks about lions in Africa, part flashback, part fantasy. Nick got to know and love the Vumbi pride. A few months later, he heard that it had ventured into land beyond the park and that three females had been killed.

Stunning Panorama of the Milky Way

Matt Payne says people who live in cities often refuse to believe his pictures are real because they have never seen so many stars with their own eyes.

Tide Pools at Rocky Point, Mexico

Photographer Dune Newhouse captured the beautiful tide pools at Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, also known as Rocky Point. 

Puerto Peñasco has two distinctive beaches separated by Whale Hill. Located to the south east of Whale Hill, are the great tide pools where a wide variety of sea life can be found when the tide is low in the shore reefs.

Balloon Ride in Cappadocia

In this beautiful photograph by Gypsy Joyce, we see a number of travellers ascending for balloon rides in Cappadocia, Turkey.

This was Joyce’s first ever hot air balloon experience and she captured it beautifully.

Cappadocia lies in eastern Anatolia, in the center of what is now Turkey. The relief consists of a high plateau over 1000 m in altitude that is pierced by volcanic peaks. The boundaries of historical Cappadocia are vague but results in an area approximately 400 km (250 mi) east–west and 250 km (160 mi) north–south.

Snake Swallowing A Frog

This image of the snake, which is listed in the Natural World category of the 12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest., was captured by photographer Nicolas Reusens who was hiking in a Costa Rica jungle.

Commenting on the shot, Nicolas said: I could only get around five pictures before the frog was swallowed and the snake disappeared into the deep forest. Not until I arrived home did I realise I had taken one of my favourite shots of the whole trip.

Location : Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica, May 2014

Muscle Power

This playful fight amongst two young sub adult Tigers was a brilliant life time opportunity that lasted exactly 4-5 seconds. The cubs were sitting in the grass as dusk approached when suddenly one of them sneaked up behind the other and what happened next is captured in this image.

Epic Meeting at 10 000 m (33 000 feet) above Earth

They are triple world champions in freeflying. They have thousands of jumps under their belts in freeflying, BASE jumping and wingsuit flying. Their penultimate challenge to date: jumping from the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, in April 2014...
On Saturday, May 31, 2014, Frederic Fugen and Vincent Reffet, the skydiving duo otherwise known as Soul Flyers, achieved an exceptional and unique new feat, combining freeflying at high altitude and "mountain swooping" for Red Bull Skycombo.

They were dropped from a Beechcraft King Air B200 10,000m (33,000ft) in -50°C temperatures above Mont Blanc, at the very limits of flight without a pressure suit. They linked up for some two-man aerobatics before opening their parachutes especially designed for mountain swooping (smaller, at nine metres squared, than a traditional canopy, for faster and more technical gliding).

There they brushed the summits of the Peuterey ridge in Italy, the longest in Europe, linking the Aiguille Blanche and Aiguille Noire. Their flight ended 1,200m up in Courmayeur.

Though lasting just seven minutes in total, Red Bull Skycombo took more than a year and a half to prepare and brought together a whole team of specialists, including the developers of an oxygen system especially adapted for jumping – less restrictive and lighter – to avoid the risk of hypoxia at such a high altitude.

The Glass Bottom Bedroom in Bali

This incredible glass bottom suite is called Udang House (or Shrimp House) and it is the signature suite at the Bambu Indah estate in Ubud, Bali.

Situated above a fresh shrimp pond, this house has tempered glass floor panels for an underwater panorama of crustaceans in action. Authentic shrimp baskets have been converted into lamps for a total ‘fishing village experience’.

This house is situated at the source of the fresh water fountain that supplies the natural pool and features a private porch to soak in the surroundings. The shower is partly indoor and partly outdoor, providing guests an opportunity to commune with nature.

The glass tiled roof of the bathroom allows entry of both the light of day and the Bali moon at night.

For more information on the eco-luxury hotel, visit their official website at: http://goo.gl/Vy6H14
