Meet Jeannette Rankin — one of the original women to #BreakTheCeiling in Washington.

Shout out or share with a woman who you think could be next to #BreakTheCeiling.
"Anglers have been coming to the opening of the #salmon fishing season on the River Tay in Kenmore, Scotland for 70 years. The beautiful Perthshire village has been the venue for the occasion since 1947, with fisherman travelling from all over the country to celebrate the seasons opening day held on the 15th of January unless that date falls on a Sunday. This angler with his dapper waistcoat was casting up stream, so I was able to frame him nicely against one of the archways of the Kenmore Bridge which dates from 1774." - @mitchelljeff | January 16, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews
"The project came out better than I envisioned. We were driven to give it absolutely everything within our limits both physically and artistically. It was a really wonderful process to see what I could do and open myself up to a purely personal fine art project." - @TylerStableford | @GettyImagesCreative | #WildlifeWednesday _ Award-winning adventure photography Tyler Stableford flew to Cancun, Mexico with his crew to shoot his dream project - a woman gracefully diving underwater with whale sharks. Today he is taking over @gettyimages for a behind the lens look at his surreal imagery. [3 of 3]
"Our test day was really quite sobering. I didn't think I was going to pull off the shoot. Not even one shot, but on the actual shoot date we encountered a bit of luck. I truly believe there was a log of magic and harmony that came together." - @TylerStableford | @GettyImagesCreative | #WildlifeWednesday _ Award-winning adventure photography Tyler Stableford flew to Cancun, Mexico with his crew to shoot his dream project - a woman gracefully diving underwater with whale sharks.

Award-winning adventure photography Tyler Stableford flew to Cancun, Mexico with his crew to shoot his dream project - a woman gracefully diving underwater with whale sharks. Today he is taking over @gettyimages for a behind the lens look at his surreal imagery. _ "I think connecting a human being in a momentary dance to such an exotic creature is a way to actually experience the fluid connections between humans and animals. It also ties in my belief of our connection to everything in this world. I wanted to try to bring that to life in a series of images and moments captured in time." - @TylerStableford | @GettyImagesCreative | #WildlifeWednesday [1 of 3]

"The first picture is taken in Whitby during a recent storm surge that was expected to cause significant flooding in many areas along the east coast of the #UK. I was covering the 'surge' for a number of hours and this was taken after 30 plus hours of being without sleep and was on Pier Road in Whitby. The seawater from the North Sea, which was covered in foam caused by the wind, had broken through some sea defenses and was flowing down the road. As I turned I noticed the sky was an amazing color as the sun set and I crouched down in the middle of the water and took the picture." - @ian_forsyth_photography | January 13, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews

"As officers gathered for the funeral service being held for Detective Steven McDonald, #NYPD helicopters circled above Manhattan in honor of the officer. I was in Harlem and high up enough to have a view of Midtown. I watched for several minutes as the helicopters continued circling above the city. I setup my camera and waited for the perfect formation. Finally, the helicopters were in sync as they made a final pass over St. Patrick's Cathedral on 5th Ave, giving me the opportunity to capture the moment from a distance to help tell the story." - @afton.almaraz | January 13, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews
