Some really wonderful photos of India from nicasophoto on Tumblr.

a flashback to a different time when I was less adept but more adventurous of a photographer. These are photos of various trips I took to India between 2006-2008 in various cities across the countries. It has always made for a thrilling photographic experience with the most receptive subjects I’ve ever had the honor of shooting.

photographer sebastian copeland has reached both poles on foot, traveling more than 8,000 kilometers across the arctic sea, greenland and antarctica (and setting four world records in the process), in order to document this disappearing landscape and highlight the effects of climate change.  

says copeland, “helping people fall in love with their world is a catalyst to wanting to save it. our actions here, in the industrialized world, are changing this fragile, beautiful landscape forever, and i wanted to ask people to think about that.” 

though to many the poles may seem unimportant in their remoteness, copeland notes, “the rapid changes in this stark yet fragile icy realm may sound the last warning before the destruction of our environment as we know it today.”

it was revealed this week, for example, that the eventual loss of a major section of west antarctica’s ice sheet — a region which contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by four feet — now appears unstoppable.

Hidden Beach - Mexico (Islas Marietas)

A gaping hole in the surface of the lush green island exposes a secret beach, with ample shade, sun and crystal-clear water. The Marieta Islands are an archipelago, a chain of islands that exist as a result of volcanic eruption. The islands themselves are natural wonders, but it was something else that caused the burrowed beach to be shown the light.

The Hidden Beach is invisible from the outside, and is only accessible through a long water tunnel that links the beach to the Pacific Ocean. There is approximately six feet of space above water level, so visitors can arrive at the beach by swimming or kayaking. The islands are still uninhabited, but are frequently visited by tourists who come to enjoy the diverse marine wildlife and the unique tropical eden of Playa Del Amor.

For even more on Mexico’s Hidden Beach, keep reading on Atlas Obscura!
