Photograph by @jasonedwardsng // #Sponsored by @Penfolds // A stand of River Red Gums, a species of eucalyptus tree, line the Deer-Pen dam in the Barossa Valley. This iconic tree produces welcome shade in the extreme temperatures of Australia, but it also has an ominous nickname, "widow maker", as they have a habit of dropping large boughs without warning. They provide welcome nest hollows for native wildlife and may live for 700 years! #Penfolds magic is founded in the diverse and rich wine regions of South Australia, where every bottle starts its story.

Photograph by @jasonedwardsng // #Sponsored by @Penfolds // Carefully stacked, row upon row of wine barrels holding fortified wines, including the aptly named Grandfather Tawny, are protected from the elements in the Barossa Valley, South Australia. Matured in small oak barrels and blended via the ‘Solera’ method, the prolonged and highly specialized process for the Grandfather Tawny produces a fortified wine with a minimum average blended age of 20 years. #Penfolds magic is founded in the diverse and rich wine regions of South Australia, where every bottle starts its story.

Photograph by @jasonedwardsng // #Sponsored by @Penfolds // In the Barossa Valley, Kalimna Vineyard’s Block 42 is home to the original Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in the nineteenth century. These vines are thought to be the oldest continuously producing Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the world. Each year, the grapes are carefully hand-picked. #Penfolds magic is founded in the diverse and rich wine regions of South Australia, where every bottle starts its story. Discover more at penfolds.com

Photograph by @jasonedwardsng // #Sponsored by @Penfolds // Very old, contorted, knotted and serpentine vines on Block 42 in the Barossa Valley are thought to be the oldest continuously producing Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the world. For many decades these vines have produced flavour-intense, mineral-rich fruit with exceptional concentration and balance. #Penfolds magic is founded in the diverse and rich wine regions of South Australia, where every bottle starts its story.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Sea stacks as seen from Second Beach in Olympic National Park near La Push, Washington. This morning dawned clear, which is a small miracle for this time of year on the Olympic Peninsula. We also had the beach to ourselves, which was another amazing surprise. To get this image I stood in the water with my tripod firmly embedded in the sand. #olympicnationalpark #secondbeach @olympicnationalpark

Video by @ladzinski // #sponsored by @DJIGlobal // Small enough to travel with you, @DJIGlobal’s foldable #MavicPro makes every sky your creative canvas. Never miss an opportunity to capture the world in 4K with your @DJIGlobal #MavicPro // A stand up paddle boarder navigates along the canal through a beautiful and rugged maze of ice in Langjökull glacier, Iceland. Glaciers are always moving, making these water ways where the lake and the glacier intersects even more unique. You can return the following year to this same location and it will be entirely different, which means you get to explore it freshly once again.

📸 @johnkernickphotography The Golden Gate Bridge, spanning the Golden Gate, the one-strait connecting San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The bridge links San Francisco and Marin County, carrying both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1across the strait. . . . . #goldengatebridge #sunset #sanfrancisco #california #johnkernickphotography

Photo by Corey Arnold @arni_coraldo Congaree National Park is one of the lesser known gems of the National Park system. A paddle down the Congaree River feels like a swamp but is actually an old growth forested floodplain, an incredibly haunting place (in a good way). After three hours kayaking we encountered at least two dozen snakes basking along the shore and overhanging branches. Can you guess what kind of snake this is? @congareenps #congaree #congareenationalpark #findyourpark #snake #snakesofinstagram #southcarolina #kayaking #potd

Photo by @babaktafreshi The World at Night photography A couple of nights ago next to an icon in Utah. A great aspect of US National Parks is their pristine dark skies, thanks to the Night Sky Program in the parks which controls light pollution. To me as a night photographer who spent past 2 decades imaging under stars in all continents, this is the paradise! The Milky Way, from Scorpius to Aquila, appears at the end of twilight above the Delicate Arch, 60 ft (18m) high, in the Arches National Park. On @babaktafreshi find more of our planet’s wonders at night. @natgeo @natgeocreative @archesnps #utah #southwest #nationalparks #nightsky #longexposure #milkyway

Photo by @KristaRossow // Up, up, and away... The #Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta wrapped up yesterday and I was lucky enough to get to enjoy the "mass ascension" of over 500 hot air balloons one morning. There are few man-made experiences that can rival the wonder and awe I find in nature, but this is one of them. It is pure magic. #hotairballoon To see more from #NewMexico, visit @KristaRossow.

Photo @pedromcbride// FROZEN LIGHT: Inside Alaska’s Sitaantaagu glacier is mesmerizing. Yet soon the lip over the entrance will melt, and the entire cave will collapse leaving nothing but its startling absence. To see more follow @pedromcbride

Video by @bertiegregory. A baby bottlenose dolphin (a calf) comes over to check me out in waters off Gubal Island in the northern Red Sea. I was lucky enough to spend over an hour with this calf and it’s mother as they swam laps around me. It's incredible to think that bottlenose dolphins are capable of diving well over 250m deep.
