Early Photos of Hurricane Ian’s Landfall in Florida (21 photos)

Hurricane Ian made landfall in southwest Florida yesterday as a Category 4 storm, causing catastrophic flooding, wind damage, and power outages affecting millions. Ian also heavily damaged at least two causeways, cutting off the only land connection to several barrier islands. Early images are now coming in, showing some of the destruction caused by this unusually intense storm.

A New Generation of Shepherds in the French Pyrenees (18 photos)

This summer, Valentine Chapuis, a photographer with AFP, spent time with two young shepherds as they tended to their flocks in the solitude of the French Pyrenees mountains. Alisson Carrere-Sastre and Soline Castet are among the newest generation of French shepherds watching over herds of cows and sheep as they roam the mountain pastures, grazing from June to September. Though they may wear modern gear and carry cellphones, traditional aspects remain, as they still carry (and use) a shepherd’s crook, and rely on their beloved dogs to guide and protect their flocks.

Photos: The Aftermath of Hurricane Fiona in Eastern Canada (14 photos)

After causing heavy damage across parts of the Caribbean and Bermuda last week, Hurricane Fiona moved north toward Eastern Canada, making landfall this weekend as a post-tropical cyclone. The downgraded storm still packed heavy rain and winds, gusting up to 110 mph, driving storm surges and knocking down trees and power lines. Hundreds of thousands remain without power as emergency crews and utility workers work to clear debris and rebuild lines. Below is a collection of recent images from Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland.

100 Years Ago in Photos: A Look Back at 1922 (30 photos)

A century ago, the newly established Irish Free State was descending into civil war, Russia was still enduring a terrible famine, construction of the Lincoln Memorial was completed in Washington, D.C., Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Party seized control of the Italian government, and much more. Please take a moment for a look back at some of the events and sights from around the world 100 years ago.

Winners of the Bird Photographer of the Year 2022 (16 photos)

The winning entries in this year’s Bird Photographer of the Year competition were recently announced, with Erlend Haarberg named as the overall winner for his image of a rock ptarmigan taking flight high on a Norwegian mountain. Contest organizers were kind enough to share some of the other winners here, in eight different categories, selected from a field of more than 20,000 entries.

Rock Ptarmigan Flight. Overall Winner and Gold Winner, Birds in the Environment. High above the tree-line, the wind, snow and cold maintain the iron grip of winter for months on end. This is where rock ptarmigan thrive, small white feather-balls in an endless white landscape. On this particular winter day, I was on my way to a mountaintop by Tysfjorden in Norway to photograph landscapes. I had almost reached the summit when I spotted some ptarmigan tracks criss-crossing between the rocks. From behind a rock, a small head appeared, and seconds later it took to wing with the mountains and fjord landscape in the background, setting the scene perfectly.

Photos: The Remarkable Life of Queen Elizabeth II (40 photos)

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning British monarch in history, died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland today. Born to the Duke and Duchess of York in 1926, Elizabeth lived a life in the public eye from a very young age, ascended to the throne at 25, and went on to serve as Queen for more than 70 years. Below, a collection of images of Elizabeth’s remarkable life, from age 5 to 96.

Extreme Drought in Southern China (18 photos)

China just experienced its hottest August ever recorded, going back to 1961, when data compilation began. Parts of southern China have also endured months of drought conditions that have dried up rivers and lakes, including Lake Poyang—the largest freshwater lake in China—which has dwindled to 25 percent of its average size. The unusually long and intense heat wave and drought have dried up crops, forced power cuts, and altered landscapes across a broad region. Collected here are recent images from Wuhan, Chongqing, Lake Poyang, and more.

Ukrainian Students Revisit Their Destroyed School (10 photos)

Emilio Morenatti, a photographer with the Associated Press, recently spent time with a group of students in Chernihiv, Ukraine, where the academic year is starting up once again, despite their school building having been destroyed by Russian bombs six months ago. Some of the students, who went to their old school to collect new textbooks, visited the ruins of their former classrooms and shared some of their thoughts with Morenatti.

"I'm scared to stand in the destroyed part of the class I once studied," Klyshnia said. ( Emilio Morenatti / AP)

The Return of La Tomatina (18 photos)

After a two-year suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic, La Tomatina returned to the town of Buñol, Spain, attracting approximately 20,000 people to take part in what is billed as “the world’s biggest tomato fight.” About 130 tons of overripe tomatoes were brought by seven trucks, then dumped and thrown among the crowd. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the messy fiesta.

Devastating Monsoon Flooding in Pakistan (25 photos)

Some of the heaviest monsoon rains in a decade have caused widespread flooding in Pakistan since mid-June, affecting millions, and killing more than 1,100 people as of today, according to the country’s National Disaster Management Authority. Nearly 500,000 people have been displaced by weeks of torrential rainfall. Pakistani officials are seeking assistance from the international community after thousands of houses, farms, roads, and bridges have been damaged or destroyed across the country.

Preparing for the Launch of Artemis I (27 photos)

NASA’s Artemis I moon mission is scheduled to launch on August 29, providing the first integrated test of its new deep-space exploration systems: the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, the Orion spacecraft, and supporting ground systems. At launch, the SLS will become the most powerful rocket ever, producing 15 percent more thrust than the Apollo-era Saturn V rocket. Though uncrewed, the Artemis I mission will carry three test mannequins in the Orion crew module to measure stresses and the effects of radiation during its trip to lunar orbit, returning to Earth 42 days later. The next mission will be Artemis II, a crewed mission to lunar orbit, planned for May of 2024—and Artemis III is scheduled to land humans on the lunar surface once again in 2025. Gathered here, photographs of some of the work put into SLS, Orion, and supporting programs in recent years, as launch day approaches.

Belugas in Hudson Bay (18 photos)

Earlier this month, Olivier Morin, a photographer with Agence France-Presse, traveled to the town of Churchill in northern Manitoba, Canada, to observe beluga whales. An estimated 55,000 belugas migrate to Hudson Bay from the Arctic every summer. Each year, thousands of tourists visit to watch the white whales swim and feed where the Churchill River meets the bay—and, in some cases, visitors might spot polar bears hunting those same whales.

The Views From the Top (20 photos)

Today I have for you a collection of photos of structures around the world that were built high atop mountains, cliffs, and stone pillars. These remote buildings range in age from palace complexes thousands of years old to tourist destinations built mere decades ago. These observatories, monasteries, castles, towers, forts, and palaces were all built for different reasons—as defensive measures, or to make the most of a grand view, or maybe just to take advantage of a remote location’s tranquil setting.

Photos: Severe Drought in Europe (30 photos)

Record-setting high temperatures and dry weather have affected nearly half of Europe in recent weeks, drying up bodies of water, damaging crops, prompting water restrictions, sparking wildfires, and more. Reservoir and river levels have dropped to record lows, affecting navigation and exposing long-submerged structures. July was the driest month on record for France and the hottest month in Spain since 1961. Gathered below are recent images from England, France, Spain, Germany, and other European countries hit by a series of heat waves this summer.
