Tradition of flags | photograph by zay yar lin (@zayyarlin84 )
.
"from the time that ships started sailing, flags were in place as a mode of communication or expression of intent," writes #yourshotphotographer zay yar lin. "flags have always formed an integral part of shipping but the necessity and extent of usage have obviously reduced over time owing to advancements in technology. however, much like other so-called ‘arts’ pertaining to the shipping industry, flag etiquette have stood the test of time and if not extensively, flags are still displayed when absolutely important like when entering a port." this photo was selected for the june 14, 2019 edition of our photos of the week series.

“this moment is stunning and your use of a slow shutter speed really creates the visual narrative of the artistry and dedication to the use of flags at sea. it's a timeless tradition that hasn't passed with time, despite the sea flowing quickly by. nicely done!” — @natgeoyourshot associate photo editor kristen mcnicholas (@kemcnicholas )

Out of the ice | photograph by jason gulley (@jason_gulley_science )
.
“dr. matt covington climbs a thin nylon rope to exit a glacier moulin in svalbard. moulins are deep, vertical caves that form where glacial rivers disappear into crevasses and turbulent water carves out cavities in the ice,” writes #yourshotphotographer jason gulley. “dr. covington and his team waited until the lower autumn temperatures froze the glacier’s surface streams to explore and map this cave. maps of glacier caves are improving understanding of how water flows through glaciers and contribute to rising sea levels.” this photo was selected for the june 14, 2019 edition of our photos of the week series.

“i love how the light illuminating dr. covington creates a halo of sorts around him that sets apart from the wall of the moulin. my eye is immediately drawn to the highlight from the opening and then leads down to his silhouette. i love the encroaching shadows as he lowers down. thank you for such an informative caption, too!” — @natgeoyourshot associate photo editor kristen mcnicholas (@kemcnicholas )
