gettyimages "I am currently covering the #Glastonbury 2017 Festival at Worthy Farm, Somerset for Getty Images News and was on site shooting the #sunset the night before the gates opened to the public. As I was doing so, four campsite stewards who were enjoying a welcome break before their work began, started taking selfies and jumping in the air. It turns out they were in fact student cheerleaders from Bournemouth University hence the synchronised shape to their jump." - @mattcardy | June 20, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews

The two-day tournament dubbed 'Last Male Standing' is an annual charity event that aims to raise awareness of the plight of the northern-white rhino and creates funding to continue ongoing research into ways to save the sub-species from extinction.| June 18, 2017 | Tony Karumba #AFP #GettyImages

gettyimages "On the longest day of the year I had the pleasure of being based in Zug in #Switzerland and with temperatures forecast to be very hot, there was an obvious place to try and find something great to photograph; so off to Lake Zug I went and it was within the first few minutes of being there I found the local diving board with dozens of keen locals lining up to dive into the refreshing mountain lake. They had 15 hours, 55 minutes and 11 seconds of light to enjoy it!" - @jamesmorganphoto | June 21, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews

gettyimages "Look out below! The typical hero-of-the-game-being-doused-with-sports-drink gets a different look without all the spray and contortions of the victim. I enjoy imagining the guy's reaction." - Larry Cutchall | 📷: @jah313 | June 15, 2017 | #GettySport _ Getty Images picture desk editors have a nearly immediate front row look at events unfolding throughout the world, with the images captured often reaching them in a matter of seconds. #EditorsChoice

gettyimages “There are so many music festivals that have cropped up over the last ten years or so that #Glastonbury has become something of a holy grail for music fans. For nearly five decades the ‘Daddy of them all’ has brought joy and mayhem to millions of dedicated funseekers in the Somerset countryside. It speaks volumes that each year the tickets sell out before the line-up is announced. Matt’s image of the ribbon tower and tepees at #sunset from Pennard Hill is so familiar to regulars yet immensely evocative.” - Jim Dyson | 📷 : @mattcardy | June 20, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews _ Getty Images picture desk editors have a nearly immediate front row look at events unfolding throughout the world, with the images captured often reaching them in a matter of seconds. #EditorsChoice

A dusty orange haze coats the ground, the house, even the dog's fur - creating a stunningly eerie and haunting scene I won't soon forget." - Photo selected by @hkmwicz | 📷 :Pablo Blazquez Dominguez | June 18, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews

gettyimages A boat pulls a group of solar panels to be connected to a large floating solar farm project under construction by the Sungrow Power Supply Company on a lake caused by a collapsed and flooded coal mine in Huainan, Anhui province, China. The floating solar field, billed as the largest in the world, is built on a part of the collapsed Panji No.1 coal mine that flooded over a decade ago due to over-mining, a common occurrence in deep-well mining in China's coal heartland. When finished, the solar farm will be made up of more than 166,000 solar panels which convert sunlight to energy, and the site could potentially produce enough energy to power a city in Anhui province, regarded as one of the country's coal centers. Local officials say they are planning more projects like it, marking a significant shift in an area where long-term intensive coal mining has led to large areas of subsidence and environmental degradation. However, the energy transition has its challenges, primarily competitive pressure from the deeply-established coal industry that has at times led to delays in connecting solar projects to the state grid. China's government says it will spend over US $360 billion on clean energy projects by 2020 to help shift the country away from a dependence on fossil fuels, and earlier this year, Beijing canceled plans to build more than 100 coal-fired plants in a bid to ease overcapacity and limit carbon emissions. Already, China is the leading producer of solar energy, but it also remains the planet's top emitter of greenhouse gases and accounts for about half of the world's total coal consumption. | June 14, 2017 | 📷: @kevinfrayer #GettyImagesNews

gettyimages "This was my first visit to cover the Royal Highland Show. A lot of the participants were preparing their livestock, washing, scrubbing, spray tan for the Hill Cheviots (yes, spray tan!). The massive bull was brought into the compound and the owner, Mr. Cuthbertson from the Scottish Borders was very friendly and allowed me to photograph this imposing creature. The idea struck me as he was being rinsed with water that Allt Ruadh of Crannich, that’s his name; was obedient like a child being told to take a shower and not amused. I spent the day there it was a great assignment." - @robertperrypictures | June 21, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews

gettyimages “Being a proud father myself I always find it hard when I am covering assignments where children are suffering or are unable to experience the freedom that many of us in the world take for granted. I am equally always humbled by children and people who make the most of the little they do have. This little boy smiling on the beach in Gaza as the waves rush towards him on always brings a glimmer of joy to me, a brief time for him to be oblivious of the chaos and political arguing going on around him. Thousands of Palestinians descend on the 75km sandy beach of Gaza each day to relax, fish and escape the noise and heat of the city, and on many occasions to escape the warring hostilities with Israel.” - @christopherfurlong | June 13, 2015 | #GettyImagesNews [4 of 4] __ Getty Images news photographer Chris Furlong is taking over @gettyimages today for a closer look at some of his images.
