People are using the viral '10-year challenge' as a stark warning about what's happening to our planet

Social media feeds are currently filled with "10-year challenge" posts that juxtapose users' photos from 2009 and 2019. Environmental activists are using the trend to draw attention to how much Earth has changed in the last 10 years, posting side-by-side images of our planet's recent transformation. This year has started off with a slew of depressing news about climate change: Last year was the hottest year on record for the world's oceans (which are also warming up faster than we thought), an...

We tried the 1,250-calorie survival bar that powered Colin O'Brady's record-shattering 932-mile solo journey across Antarctica

Colin O'Brady recently became the first person to cross Antarctica alone, unaided by kites or resupplies. In his sled of food and gear, he brought a special nutrition bar called a Colin Bar. He ate 4,000 calories worth of the stuff every day.  We tasted the bar and found it impressively palatable, but it had some strange flavors. When American adventurer Colin O'Brady set out to become the first human to cross Antarctica alone, unaided by resupply or any wind-gathering kite, he knew a specia...

New Year’s resolutions for travelers

Wherever you are in the world, it’s that time of year again. The holidays are almost behind us and the pressure of committing to endless, unachievable New Year’s resolutions is just around the corner. But while it’s tempting to succumb to the “new year, new me” craze, the start of a new year is also a good time to think about how you can better pursue your passions. Maybe you’ve never traveled on your own, maybe there’s a special destination you’ve always wanted to visit, or maybe you simply ...

How To Master Night Sky Photography

Night sky photography is really one of the joys of photography. Stars are everywhere – whether you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere or in the Tropics, the night sky never fails to amaze anyone who is willing to spend some time out in the night, exploring the sky. You need to be willing to stay outside when most people will be in bed, but you get a stunning view of the night sky as a reward. There are some fundamental things you will need to take care of before you start your night sky...

19 Instagrams of far-north summers

When we talk about the north and the Arctic, most of us picture snow, ice, and the northern lights, with a few polar bears and a narwhal thrown in for good measure. I for one think of dog sleds, biting winds, and the endless dark of winter — I’ve certainly never thought of the far north as a summer destination. I turned to Instagram to prove myself wrong and was schooled — very quickly — on the fact that when the sun barely sets, there’s a hell of a lot to see, explore, and do at the top of t...

45 Incredible Night Shots That Will Inspire You To Go Out After Dark

10 Photographers You Need To Watch If You Love Simple Landscapes

Landscapes are a major genre in photography, and many photographers capture them using a pristine approach that bridges abstraction and minimalism.

For better or worse, human beings have transformed our landscapes, and our footprint has been a subject of many landscapes, too. Here is a selection of 10 photographers you need to watch if you’re into simple, yet carefully captured landscapes. Photo by Jeremy Bishop on Unsplash...

Female travel photographers 2017

To say 2017 had highs and lows would be an understatement. But for these photographers, it was a year marked by victories and creative triumph, new boundaries pushed, and ripe with adventure. I chose to highlight specifically female photographers for two reasons. The first is that when I began researching, many lists only featured pretty girls holding on to their hats, gazing into the sunset. Don’t get me wrong, selfies are fun — there’s a selfie artist on this very list. But I wanted to find ...

The coldest places you should visit

While most folks seek out warmer weather when they go traveling, others see sub-freezing temperatures and desolate landscapes as a challenge. Sure, there are winter resorts in central California, but how cool would it be to ski across the frozen tundra of northern Sweden, or to camp out underneath the Aurora Borealis in northern Canada? That being said, a lot of the coldest places on Earth are inaccessible (either due to physical or legal restrictions), so below is a list of some of the colde...

How To Achieve Visual Balance In Your Photography

Have you ever looked at a really nice photo and felt that something was just not quite right? A feeling that something is jarring but you can’t quite put your finger on it. There is a good chance that the image is visually unbalanced. Even a good composition can look jarring if some of the elements in it are not balanced. But what is visual balance and how do we create it. Today we are going to delve into its mysteries and hopefully shine a light on this important but underrated compositional el...

People Are Vacationing To This Epic Canadian Iceberg

Temps may be climbing, but those who are more apt to frolic in cooler environs than soak up the sun don't have to pack up their gear.
