Photo by @williamalbertallard// Valentino Park, 2001Apricot blossoms fell like pink snow for a few magical moments in this lovely park I visited almost every day I found myself in Turin. For many visits I simply took in the beauty the trees in blossom but knew if I were lucky I’d be in the park on a day a slight breeze would bring the blossoms down and on that afternoon I was delightfully showered with them. At just the right moment a small group of people entered the frame, walking diagonally into the picture, kind of completing the image.#followme@williamalbertallardfor more images from Italy and other assignments spanning five decades.#valentinopark#turin#italy#apricotblossom#blossoms#italytrip#italygram#tree#trees#treestagram#flowers#flowerstagram
Photo @hammond_robinfor @witness_change.“I am here because I was not going well mentally. Before I could not sleep, and sometimes I go out for a walk without any desire to return. Sometimes I spoke disorderly. But since I'm having the treatment, I’m fine… The center has helped me with treatments. When I had no medication, it really bothered me. But now that I take it, I feel myself changing. I could not even work before treatment. Now I work well without problem from morning until evening.” 29 year old Lamboni Laré, a mechanic, lives with a mental health problem and attends Centre de Santé Mentale, in Dapaong, northern Togo.#inmyworldis my new campaign designed to expose the challenges faced by people living with mental health issues and give them the chance to be seen, heard and valued.

Photo by @kirstenluce// Captured #withgalaxyS8, produced with @samsungmobileusa// Sandra Garcia, a filmmaker originally from Mexico City and now living in Los Angeles, takes a dip in the pool in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Cabo is best known as a tourist resort town, where most residents are involved in the hospitality industry in one way or another. A few friends and I were lucky enough to line up assignments in this beautiful part of the world. Most of us travel frequently between the US and Mexico but it's rare to all be in the same place at the same time.

Photo by @jayaprakash_bojan| After over 11,000 photo submissions from around the world, our panel of judges has named the 2017 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year! Jayaprakash Joghee Bojan of Singapore is this year's grand prize winner for his stunning shot of an enormous male orangutan, waist-deep in a river, shyly peeking from behind a tree. Our judges were impressed by how the poignant image spoke to the impact deforestation is having on the habitat of this critical endangered species.

Video by @joelsartore| The Sumatran rhino is considered one of the rarest mammals in the world. Poaching is rampant for this species and only about 100 are left living within the fragmented rainforests of Southeast Asia. Pictured here is a female Sumatran rhinoceros named Suci at the @cincinnatizoo.Suci was one of only two in human care in the United States and one of only 10 worldwide. She was born at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2007 and, to the devastation of her keepers and many other admirers, she passed away in 2014. Suci served as a critical component in the fight to save rhinos by contributing to research on female sexual maturity through the testing of her fecal matter. Because of this research, ongoing breeding programs will have a better chance of propagating the species.To see a portrait of Suci, follow @joelsartore...#sumatranrhino#rhino#poaching#criticallyendangered#endangeredspecies#southeastasia#nature#conservation#biodiversity#animalfacts#wildlife#wildlifephotography#natgeo#savetogether#photoark
Photo by @mmuheisen(Muhammed Muheisen) Delagha, an 8-year-old unaccompanied refugee from Afghanistan, sits on a bunk bed at a "one stop center" where he and other refugees have taken refuge near the Croatian border in Serbia. Delagha traveled 4,000 miles from his home in Afghanistan. He has not told his parents in Afghanistan about his brutal journey to Europe: “They asked if I faced a hard time, but I said, ‘No.' I didn’t want them to worry.”For more photos of the refugee crisis follow @mmuheisenand @everydayrefugees#everydayrefugees#muhammedmuheisen
Photo by @shonephoto(Robbie Shone) - Planinska jama is one of the longest river caves in Slovenia. 500 meters (1600ft) from the entrance of the cave is a confluence of two underground rivers: the Pivka River, flowing from the Postojna Polje through Postojna jama (cave), and the Rak River, flowing from Rak Škocjan. This is one of the largest confluences of subterranean rivers in Europe. Here, a team of explorers in an inflatable boat progress along the giant tunnel.This portfolio of photographs was shot for @natgeoadventurefrom the famous river caves of Slovenia, birth place of speleology and home to the 'human fish'. With my caving colleagues I visited 8 caves, each one varied and different with its own personality. Words by Andrew Bisharat@natgeocreative
