Photos of the Week, October 15, 2021

No two expeditions are alike aboard Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic ships. Our field staff are constantly surprised by the amazing images they capture. This week, our staff in the Pacific Northwest and Galápagos used unusual angles and perfect golden hour light conditions to bring fresh perspective to old favorite subjects, from basalt rock formations to red-footed boobies.
