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).

Trinchesia nudibranch on a soft coral

Nudibranchs are one of the most diverse species of sea slugs. And they come in a great amount of shapes, colors, and sizes. Always a challenge to find, and to photograph in an interesting way.

The Sassi of Matera, the UNESCO World Heritage - European Capital of Culture 2019

Across the canyon, which was carved by the Gravina river, we see the ancient city of Matera in southern Italy (more info: https://goo.gl/6czgFb). It was recently declared the European Capital of Culture for 2019.

At the edge of the canyon you can see the Sassi di Matera https://goo.gl/hDa2wE, ancient cave dwellings that are suspected to be among the first human settlements in Italy, dating back as early as 7000 BC. Situated in the old town, the historical center of Matera was declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993.

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
Camera : Canon 5D Mark III
Photographer : Nicolas Reusens

Musician Plays Piano in the Middle of the Arctic as Calving Glaciers Crash Behind Him

Acclaimed Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi performs one of his own compositions on a floating platform in the Arctic Ocean, in front of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway.

The composition, Elegy for the Arctic, was inspired by eight million voices from around the world calling for Arctic protection. You can watch the stirring performance in the embedded video here : https://goo.gl/FfBGqm

The 2.6 x 10 meter artificial iceberg platform was made from more than 300 triangles of wood attached together and weighed a total of nearly two tonnes. A grand piano was then placed on top of the platform for Einaudi’s incredible performance.

Beautiful Uninhabited Island in Madagascar

On a return flight from Madagascar, reddit user fulminic flew over this uninhabited island and snapped this amazing photo. When he got home, he scoured Google Earth and was able to locate the remote island in East Madagascar.

The locals called it Antafana Island, and on his next trip he endeavoured to visit it. Reaching the island was an adventure in itself.

On reddit he explains:
I had to look for it on Google Earth. Then I located the largest nearby village and how to get there. To get this town we did a four day hike because it’s airport was inoperable. Of course there were easier ways to reach it, but we wanted to approach from the north, so by foot. The town was developed some how (touristic) and there were one or two nice accommodation run by French people. I informed about the island and they were able to take us there.
 
Located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Southeast Africa, Madagascar is a biodiversity haven and over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth.

Camels Crossing the Sahara

Beautiful picture of a group of camels crossing Erg Chebbi in the Moroccan territory of the mighty Sahara Desert.

An erg (also sand sea or dune sea, or sand sheet if it lacks dunes) is a broad, flat area of desert covered with wind-swept sand with little or no vegetative cover. Erg Chebbi is one of Morocco’s two Saharan ergs. The other is Erg Chigaga near M’hamid.

Ayant décidé à la toute dernière minute de nous arrêter 48h à Bergame pour revivre la chanson de Diane Tell "Et juste à côté de Milan, dans une ville qu'on appelle Bergame...", nous voulions absolument la visiter à l'aide d'un guide professionnel. Nous avons donc contacté Sara du jour pour le lendemain. Adorable, elle a su s'adapter à notre agenda fluctuent et nous faire découvrir les secrets de Bergame en 2h. Sa gentillesse, sa passion, sa connaissance parfaite de la ville font de Sara la guide par excellence pour ne pas passer à côté de joyaux sans les comprendre. Si vous parlez anglais ou italien, alors n'hésitez pas à la contacter, elle rendra votre expérience inoubliable. Et si vous êtes des foodies, faites la parler de la nourriture locale et des bons restaurants, elle vous donnera les bons plans pour profiter au maximum de la grande culture culinaire de Bergame.

When you are on the road, you want to make sure you find the right places to stop. This McDonald's is a very good spot to take a short pause on the way. It's clean, large. There's a bit of a line for lunch so expect to stay a full hour on site.

Rosa Rossa has a very unique setting, very dark inside. A very nice team to serve you and a very appealing menu. You can feel that food is fresh but the taste was average. At least you don't feel that it's a touristic restaurant, the value is good but we expected much more.

If you are in Milan for a short trip then you will love this studio as it is very central, offers all amenities you need and very inexpensive for the value.

Edith et Pascal sont venus de Belgique pour changer de vie et créer une ferme de toute pièce. Travaillant avec passion, ils ont réussi à développer leur activité avec toujours plus d'animaux et maintenant des produits à base de lait de chèvre, d'ânesse, de brebis et de jument, directement prélevé sur la production de lait des animaux de la ferme. Ils vendent aussi des superbes fromages depuis leur exploitation ou sur les marchés. Notre activité préférée? La journée découverte de 10h30 à 14h (vérifier les jours car cela varie) pour partager la vie de la ferme pendant quelques heures. Une vraie expérience humaine.

A very cosy place under a roof of trees. The team is absolutely lovely, speaking all southern european languages. The menu is offered in different languages too, which made our life much easier to take the right order. In term of quality, we were really thrilled by the quality of the pasta, seafood and fish. I highly recommend that restaurant

The most expensive museum in the world for the price per square foot but an amazing collection to watch if you are in Venice. Peggy Guggenheim was a very talented American art collector, bohemian and socialite.
