Las mejores fotos de National Geographic en Instagram

J. F. Alonso el

Cada una de las imágenes de National Geographic tiene algo de misión imposible (o de más difícil todavía). Sus fotógrafos suelen contar con entusiasmo el laborioso proceso de conseguir una imagen que “pase el corte” de los editores gráficos, que tenga la fuerza suficiente para que el lector se quede con los ojos pegados a esa página. La búsqueda de la perfección dura semanas o meses, incluso años. Así durante toda su historia, 127 años. Una vez, Ramón Larramendi, que viajó durante tres años por el Ártico para elaborar uno de esos reportajes, me dijo que sus editores eran tan meticulosos como para comprobar el color de los autobuses de un determinado pueblo citado en el artículo. La revista (papel reluciente) sigue vendiendo millones de ejemplares en todo el mundo, pero desde hace algún tiempo su actividad en internet y redes sociales es incesante. Su cuenta en Instagram -creada en 2012- suma 20,6 millones de seguidores, y sus fotos allí compartidas, más de mil millones de “me gusta”. Para celebrar una cifra tan redonda, sus responsables nos muestran una selección de las fotos mejor valoradas por los internautas. Un viaje con el objetivo abierto (también la boca) por los paisajes del mundo.

Look into these eyes! Stop the demand and the killing can too. There are only 3200 tigers left in the wild! We need to fight for the right of tigers to live – peacefully and without being killed. @stevewinterphoto This image was from my @natgeo story “The Cry of the Tiger" Check out my NG Book “Tigers Forever” – this is the cub on the front cover photographed 10 months later!

Photograph by @JohnStanmeyer Mount Bromo (foreground) and Mount Semeru, simultaneously erupting as the earliest touches of dawn mix with the light from a setting full moon during the sacred #Kasada ceremony in the spectacular #Tengger Caldera located in #EastJava #Indonesia. Pleased to announce that beginning today I’ve joined @NatGeoCreative for representation in commercial assignments and image licensing. In addition, I’m bringing my entire archive — 14 stories from more than a decade with @NatGeo magazine — over to NatGeo Creative, expanding my collaboration with the Society, sharing more loudly the passions for education, awareness on the issues facing all of us today and into the future. Looking forward to dancing with the talented team lead by Maura Mulvihill and the likes of @alicebrkeating, @ginamartindc and more. Above is a photograph from my 4th story with the magazine, published in the January 2008 edition, titled #VolcanoGods. A story I proposed to the magazine, the approach was rather unorthodox — not how one volcano is interacted with #spiritually, rather how an entire nation located along the #RingofFire interacts with what many Indonesian’s believe are the bellybuttons of the earth. Will never forget the story proposal conference call. It went somewhat like this: Mid-morning in a bar in Iquitos, Peru. On the phone was editor and chief, Chris Johns, then director of photography @dlgriffin, creative director @billmarr, members of the editorial and art departments, maps and more. After explaining the story approach for 10 or so minutes, Chris said, “I like this idea, let’s do it.” Then I thought, great — now I have to prove my theories on a topic never widely studied. Had the privilege to be partner with Senior Photo Editor, @sadiequarrier. Sadie and I worked through the process of creating the final narrative that appeared in the magazine. Often complex, I’ve always feel that each National Geographic story I do is like preparing — then defending — your doctoral thesis. In this case, it nearly was, standing in a room over a year later, presenting the final story that originated with a “let’s do it” back in South America.

The time for Mt. Lion research is now. From projects pictured here in the south led by researchers like Mark Elbroch and Panthera to projects in the northern range of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem led by Dan Stahler, researchers use winter months as the prime time for tracking and locating one of North Americas most elusive predators. In this case researchers are excited to find newborn kittens at the site of a suspected den. Once checked to determine sex, weight and overall health the kittens are returned to their den, researchers armed with knowledge that will help establish population estimates in a given area. To see the flip side of that cute cuddly face, go to @drewtrush To learn more about ongoing projects in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that hope to learn more about these amazing animals follow the @yellowstone_cougar_project and visit #mtlionsrule #kittens #cats #wildlife #greateryellowstoneecosystem #gye

Photo – @andy_bardon /// A shooting star high above the Tien Shan mountains of Kazakhstan w/ @SherpasCinema and @anjin_san /// After heading out of these mountains I was quickly flooded with news about the tragic earthquake in #Nepal. I know there are many dire situations on our planet right now, but this one has particularly hit home to me as I have spent a lot of time in the country over the last few years /// Empathy and compassion are no doubt important during times like these, but spreading awareness and taking action are also required to perpetuate real change and provide much needed assistance to those in need /// If you are able, make a donation to a vetted relief organization and help Nepal rebuild. I’ve got a link in my personal profile if you need a place to start. Namaste ✌️
