Drifting valley

When it calved from the Ross Ice Shelf in March 2000, the iceberg known as B-15 was the largest iceberg in the world. At more than 4,000 square miles, it was the size of the island nation of Jamaica at its largest. It has been breaking into smaller fragments that float around Antarctica since 2005. Several of them come together in this image by Your Shot photographer Emily Walter, creating a blue valley in the Weddell Sea.

The island

An aerial view of the southern end of Værøy, one of Norway’s Lofoten Islands, reveals a towering ridge running through it like a bony spine.

A speck in the blue

Anguilla, a British territory in the Caribbean, is a nation of tranquility, but Sandy Island takes it to another level. This speck of sand in the bright blue waters is constantly reshaped by the ocean and weather, and visitors to the cay are encouraged to make reservations. Your Shot photographer Matthew Wade captured this shot using a drone.
