National Geographic Traveler magazine is every jet setter’s dream. Chock full of travel tips, guides to exotic locales and full-page color spreads of some of the most beautiful sights imaginable, the magazine could make even the most stationary homebody beg for adventure. So it’s no surprise each year when thousands of photographers worldwide provide images for the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

The rules are simple: photographers submit a recent digital picture for one of four categories that include travel portraits, outdoor scenes, sense of place or spontaneous moments. The judges then evaluate submissions, and winners are announced relatively soon after.

MINIMALE ANIMALE is the product of designer/stylist Cassandra Kellogg’s obsession with the beach and “all things associated with the ocean.” Kellogg started out concocting her own waterproof creations for music festivals, water sports, and beach trips, and after receiving tons of positive feedback she decided to launch her own line.

During an interview, Kellogg stated that the inspiration behind her 2015 collection was a “motorcycle 90s dominatrix.” We think she hit her mark.

A rival of Constantinople, Baghdad and Damascus at its height, natural disaster struck in the form of a 1319 earthquake and the now-Turkish city of Ani has since been abandoned. While it stood, though, the Armenian capital city stretched throughout present day Armenia and eastern Turkey.

Mitch Dobrowner’s Photography Makes Destructive Storms Absolutely Beautiful

August 1, 2014

For millennia, people have been both fascinated and terrified by storms. Massive, awe-inspiring storm systems have the unique ability to rise out of the most pristine day, promptly destroy what’s around them, and then disappear into the day or night as quickly as they arrived. Giving them greater power, they are one of the few elements of our lives over which we can never gain any control. This is all the more problematic as it’s becoming and more common for them to come with a multi-million dollar cleanup tab.
