There are some images from our expeditions that are absolutely iconic: the majestic cliffs surrounding Multnomah Falls, a close-up of vibrant blue feet on a booby in the Galápagos, a sea lion seemingly posing just for your camera. But there are always corners of these trips that never fail to surprise, and things we'd never imagine we could see in these places. For instance, did you know that the waters off of Santa Cruz Island contain an explosion of colorful sea life? Or that you can photograph an atmospheric shipwreck, reminiscent of classic maritime literature, in coastal Oregon? Get Inspired By Photos, Videos, Webinars, Stories, And Exclusive Offers. Sign Up

Our field staff sent in classics as well as hidden gems this week: a few parting shots from the Pacific Northwest, and some dazzling wildlife scenes from the Galápagos.
