Earth-Day: So schön ist unsere Erde

• 22. April 2017
von Martin Foszczynski

Wir bei Bergwelten lieben es, in der Natur unterwegs zu sein. Wir lieben aber auch die Outdoor-Fotografie. Besonders, wenn die Besten ihres Fachs am Werk sind und uns mit ihren Bildern ins Staunen versetzen, aufrütteln, verstören oder einfach nur die Schönheit unseres Planeten vor Augen führen.

Anlässlich des „Earth Day“, der jährlich am 22. April Menschen auf der ganzen Welt dazu anregt, ihr Konsumverhalten zu überdenken, unternehmen wir eine Instagram-Foto-Reise rund um den Globus: Außergewöhnliche Berg-Fotos aus allen 7 Kontinenten, die uns vor Augen führen, warum unser Planet schützenswert ist.

Kasikasima-Gebirge in Suriname, Südamerika

photo by @randyolson | @thephotosociety With flat jungle all around it, Kasikasima is a surprising change to the landscape. This was supposed to be the area for our second RAP camp, but that was before camp one was flooded out and we realized rapids around Kasiasima would force the expedition to hike 8 heavy boats thru the jungle for 2.8 KM. @natgeo @Conservationorg #Suriname #SouthAmerica #RAP #rainforest #forest #Jungle #Clouds #PalumeuRiver #documentary #everydaysouthamerica #everydayeverywhere #nowaternolife #Guyanashield

Glacier-Nationalpark in den Rocky Mountains, USA

I've spent the last 6 days in #glaciernationalpark photographing as much of it as I can, however I can. Chasing light, hiking hard, scrambling up choss ridges, traversing glaciers, getting soaked in rivers and sleeping as little as possible. It's all been more then worth it to experience as much of this incredible place as I can in the little time I have here. Today was a highlight, sunrise aerials over the expansive park. There's no other way to experience how dramatic the glacially carved terrain is here then from high above it. The hazy scene here is smoke from neighboring fires, locally and as far away as Washington. The rising sun cutting through created beams of light and incredible depth. Still doing the edit, I expect I will be for a while. @jacobwfrank @glaciernps and I were kids in a candy store, filling cards and draining batteries as quickly as we could.

Antelope Canyon in Arizona, USA

#AntelopeCanyon in Arizona is one of the most iconic and photographed slot canyons, and for all the obvious reasons. The access is easy and the symmetry and beauty is unreal. @natgeocreative

Grand-Canyon-Nationalpark in Arizona, USA

Feeling fortunate to see just a sliver of this 1.2 million acre #nationalpark that 99% of its five million visitors don't. Having just completed a 20-day leg stretch walking inside #grandcanyon, @kevinfedarkoauther and I are heading back for more - 10 more days of foot powered travel to understand the issues of this treasure. The canyon wren @amymartin21 - soaks up sunrise.

Looking back on the journey of a lifetime (so far) -- hiking and bleeding some 650 miles by foot through the length of #grandcanyon -- I'm trying to digest our relationship with wild places, parks, people, land and water. Like this epic walk, it will take a longtime.

Zion National Park in Utah

Photo by Corey Arnold @arni_coraldo The view from Angels Landing in Zion National Park, Utah. My first night in Zion, I scrambled up to this classic viewpoint as the sun set and spent a good part of the night gazing at the stars. Night hiking in Zion is a great way to avoid the spring crowds and absorb the power of these magical views without distraction.

Mount Merapi auf der Insel Java, Indonesien

Photograph by @JohnStanmeyer Ring of Fire ~ Mount Merapi (foreground) takes but also gives, giving so much that thousands of people live directly upon its slopes, embracing the rich ash this mystical volcano offers into the soil. The island of Java sits upon the Ring of Fire, a line of active volcanoes that stretches across the entire archipelago. This image was from my @natgeo story, #VolcanoGods, a deep anthropologic project I did related to spiritual connections of volcanoes and their mystical importance throughout Indonesian society. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #Indonesia #MountMerapi #GungungMerapi #Merapi #volcano #gunung #ringoffire #landscape #aerial #villages #Java #mysticism #mysticvolcano

Grand-Teton-Nationalpark in Wyoming, USA

25,000-10,000 years ago, glaciers carved through these mountains sculpting steep canyons and leaving behind terminal moraines like this one at Phelps Lake in Grand Teton National Park. These piles of glacial debris have helped to form a series of lakes at the base of the Tetons supporting rich wildlife habitat and endless recreation opportunities.

Denali-Nationalpark in Alaska

Photo by @argonautphoto (Aaron Huey). The fall colors of #DenaliNationalPark, Alaska are like nothing I've ever seen, especially the red of the blueberry bushes that cover the hills and plains along the Park Road. Seen from the air these fields under Denali (The High One) near the McKinley River surround #KettleLakes, #Kettles are depressions left behind after partially-buried ice blocks melt. More Denali landscapes from my feature in the March issue of @natgeo can be found at @argonautphoto.

Quito River in Angola, Afrika

What happens when dug out canoes meet water falls? You unpack, put everything on your shoulders (including boats), and sweat profusely as you portage around. Waterfalls like this one explain elements of biodiversity (or lack there of) on our descent and exploration of the previously unexplored Cuito River corridor in the Angolan Highlands. We are continuing our coverage of the corridor now, looking at water usage throughout the country. It's important to remember that the majority of water that feeds the Okavango Delta flows from Angola. Without protection and study, the impacts of humans and development is unknowable. #onassignment for @natgeo with @intotheokavango #okavango15 @thephotosociety @eddiebauer @natgeocreative

Karsthöhle in Yucatan, Mexiko

Photograph by @JohnStanmeyer Sacred Cenote ~ Cenotes were once sacred places, such as the majestic X'Keken Cenote in the town of Dzitnup just outside of Valladolid in the Yucatan of Mexico. Today, they are places of rest and at times, meditation. I photographed this poetic moment for the Nat Geo story, Sacred Water, spending three days in this amazing underground cave. You can find this image and the entire story in the April 2010 issue of the magazine. Pleased to announce my latest Visual Storytelling and Social Media workshop, a 9-day event happening in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, June 22-30, 2016.

Sahelzone in Mali, Westafrika

The Sahel in Mali stretches over ridges and spiny bush. Gullies are the last to relinquish their green. Throughout the Sahel, wind and water have swept topsoil away. In this area, the challenge is to hold on to land which isn't already lost to the desert.

Mindful loneliness in a desert that we call Antarctica - March 2016 "Take my hand. We will walk. We will only walk. We will enjoy our walk without thinking of arriving anywhere." Stop, Look, Get inspired, Learn, Elevate. I can still breath the fresh air of this icy desert. Walking with the pinguins, overlooking seals, contemplating flying birds investigating me. Observing the landscape translating my state of mind. Magical ! Transcendant ! Surreal ! I can't help but cry. Cry with positive emotion, but also fear of destruction. Is that what our brain does to us when we stay in extreme environment ? I am lucky to be a visitor of this pristine continent - I am learning, but also reflecting, to be share and have impact. Disconnect to better reconnect. This journey certainly helped me making changes in my life. Now it's my job to turn them into habbits. Photo by me, quote by Thich Nhat Hanh.
