New Images for December

Professional Windsurfer Jumping Over The Waves Of The Faroe Islands

Holiday spirit is full blown, as December brings family and friends together for celebrations and introspective moments. Our photographers spent last month being thankful for the adventures they get to have in the outdoor world, as we have new images of skateboarders in Poland, skiers on top of mountains in Chile, mountain biking in Moab, exploring Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, camping in Alaska and discovering shells on the shore of Tasmania. If that’s not adventurous enough, there’s windsurfing off the Faroe Islands, snowmobiling in Vail, rescue techniques in Denali National Park, crack climbing in Utah and crossing over crevasses via ladders in Nepal.

You can travel around the globe, dig for clams, chill out and practice yoga or read a book by your tent, surrounded by nature. From sailing to caving, SUP boards to snow boards, northern Maine to Spain and everywhere in between, here is this month’s curated gallery of outdoor imagery: http://www.auroraphotos.com/result?webseries_id=22721

Thank you Veterans

Today Aurora salutes all veterans. We want to take a moment to especially honor and thank the veterans in our contributor ranks for their service, and to all the military photographers for everything that they do in the name of truth and country. Thank you to Aaron Ansarov, Tom Sperduto, Stacy Pearsall, Patrick Scholz, and the countless others.
