Photograph by @JohnStanmeyer on assignment for @NatGeo, continuing part III of the @OutOfEdenWalk project — Armenian priests and alter boys during the sacred Antasdan ceremony or the Blessing of the Four Corners of the World (including the blessing of the harvest) held today, Easter Sunday, in the courtyard of the Armenian Orthodox Patriarchate located in the Old City in Jerusalem. The Priests hats, know as a veghar, symbolizes Mount Ararat, the dormant volcano believed to be the resting place of Noah and the ark. It’s shape is also a symbol of traditional Armenian church domes. @VIIPhoto @ThePhotoSociety #iPhone #Hipstamatic #WattsLens + #D-TypePlate #Easter #OldCity #Jerusalem #ArmenianOrthodox #Armenian #religion #faith #Antasdan

If you’ve never watched this video about Jesus’ death and resurrection, I highly encourage you to do so as we commemorate Good Friday.  It’s a well-done short, done in anime-style by a studio in Japan, and I think effectively portrays some of what that day may have been like.  Even if you aren’t Christian, I think it’s worth the watch.

Photo @ladzinski - Sunrise view from #DeadHorsePoint State Park near Moab, Utah. This scenic vista was historically used as a natural corral for live stock due to the shear cliffs on all sides of the peninsula in the sky with a limited exit. As legend has it, a group of cowboys corralled a heard of wild horses here in the 19th century and failed to return to collect the animals leaving them to die of thirst within view of the Colorado river some 2,000 feet below. A harsh story in a strikingly beautiful landscape of the American west. @3stringsproductions @natgeocreative

Photo by @stefanounterthiner. In #Thailand photographing a rare #primate, the dusky leaf-monkey (Trachypithecus obscurus). The #newborn has a bright orange pelage - the infant pelage begins to darken at one month of age. The dusky leaf-monkey lives in the countries of Myanmar, Malaysia and Thailand. @natgeo @thephotosociety

@paulnicklen on assignment for @natgeo with @cristinamittermeier for an upcoming story on Hawaiian Pride. @haaKeaualana is a true #mermaid of the #sea.  She has been in the sea almost everyday since she was born and it shows in her comfort and grace below the waves.  She comes from the beautiful and famous Keaulana family of Makaha. A family that epitomizes true #Hawaiianpride. #westside #makaha #hawaii #oahu #surfing #beauty #grace #ocean

A spear-pierced skull is lined up with hundreds of other victim’s remains inside Ntarama Church near Bugesera, Rwanda. During the genocide thousands took refuge in the church but were massacred along with tens of thousands in the surrounding area. This April, Rwanda will observe the 20th anniversary of the genocide. In the space of 100 days in 1994, an estimated 800,000 Rwandans were killed, 200,000 were raped and two million fled the country. iPhone photograph by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder on assignment for National Geographic Magazine in Rwanda. Please see today’s National Geographic @natgeo photo blog PROOF for more photos by @dguttenfelder and the essay “Revisiting the Rwandan Genocide: How Churches Became Death Traps” by writer Peter Gwin @petergwin.
