Women of Thar Desert

Even as they go about their daily work, the women of the Thar Desert wear beautiful tooled jewelry and colorful dress. Occasionally, they’ll gather into groups to discuss a range of subjects from how lazy their men are to village politics. During the long dry season, they’ll routinely paint beautiful designs upon their adobe walls and courtyard floors adding a bit of beauty to the otherwise monochromatic world. _ Photo: Art Wolfe_ From: Earth is My Witness

Humpback Whale, Vava’u, Tonga

Tonga is one of the very few places you can actually snorkel within close proximity to whales. We had just five days on the water and four of them were just too windy and the whales were very shy. In a more outgoing moment, whale swam by and eyeballed me. It was extraordinary. _ Photo: Art Wolfe_ From: Earth is My Witness

Cheetahs

Cheetahs often rest on termite mounds from which they are able to survey their surroundings, as here in Phinda Reserve, South Africa. This is a necessity for a mother with many cubs to keep out of harm’s way._ Photo: Art Wolfe_ From: Earth is My Witness
