Yes, you can take a selfie from space on #NationalSelfieDay! 📸 This giant portrait by @gerada_studio is called "Out of Many, One," a composite portrait of several people photographed in Washington, D.C. It was made of dirt and sand and displayed throughout October 2014. Taken with our #geoeye1 satellite!
Guess who? This @gerada_studio portrait was made with 650 metric tons of sand and gravel on a Barcelona beachfront. Created before the 2008 presidential elections, it was meant to be a prayer for change—and a warning of how hope can fade away like sand. 🌊
It took 30,000 wooden pegs, 2,000 tons of soil, and 2,000 tons of sand for Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada to create this amazing 11-acre portrait of a young girl for the Belfast Festival at Queens in 2014. The artwork, called "WISH," took 18 months of planning and just one month of construction to complete. More art by @gerada_studio tomorrow!
This weekend, the @lvmotorspeedway will be all lit up for #EDCLV2017, one of the biggest electronic dance music festivals in the world ✨ Are you going to any concerts or festivals this summer?

It's #WorldOceansDay! Many know that the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef home to over 2900 individual reef systems, 900 islands, and diverse marine life 🐠 But mass bleaching linked to climate change has caused large swaths of the Reef's corals to die in the last couple of years—a reminder that it's on all of us to protect our oceans. • • • #greatbarrierreef #australia #snorkeling #scubadiving #diving #ocean #water #blue #travel #travelphotography #traveling #travelpic #travelpics #traveldiary #travelgram #traveller #traveltheworld #travelbug #wanderlust #explore #nature #digitalglobe #vantagepoint #birdseyeview #viewfromabove #awesomeview #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #worldview2

Among those who have successfully reached the top: Octogenarians, teenagers, amputees, and a blind man ⛰️ • • • #everest #everestbasecamp #mounteverest #nepal #mountain #hiking #hike #summit #travel #travelphotography #traveling #travelpic #travelpics #traveldiary #travelgram #traveller #traveltheworld #travelbug #wanderlust #explore #nature #digitalglobe #vantagepoint #birdseyeview #viewfromabove #awesomeview #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #worldview2

Happy #WorldEnvironmentDay! 🌍 We're celebrating all week long by taking a tour through environmental wonders across the globe. First up: Victoria Falls, a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe, known for some of the world's best white-water rafting. If you visit Victoria Falls during a full moon, you might be able to witness a moonbow—when the light of the moon produces a night-time lunar rainbow! 🌕 • • • #victoriafalls #zambia #zimbabwe #zambezi #africa #waterfall #waterfalls #waterfallsfordays #travel #travelphotography #traveling #travelpic #travelpics #traveldiary #travelgram #traveller #traveltheworld #travelbug #wanderlust #explore #nature #digitalglobe #vantagepoint #birdseyeview #viewfromabove #awesomeview #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #worldview2
This week, we're jetting off on a whirlwind tour of unique destinations in North America! ✈️ Adventurers travel to Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica to enjoy rainforest hikes, white-water rafting, and hot springs. Don't look for any lava, though—this volcano has been dormant since 2010. 🌋 • • • #arenalvolcano #arenal #costarica #puravida #volcano #volcanos #volcanotour #volcanoview #rainforest #hike #hiking #travel #travelphotography #traveling #travelpic #travelpics #traveldiary #travelgram #traveller #traveltheworld #travelbug #wanderlust #explore #nature #digitalglobe #vantagepoint #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery
