Photo @chrisburkard // Traveling to the Italian Dolomites for the first time was one of my most memorable experiences. Nestled quietly in the heart of the Southern Alps sits the quaint village of Lago Di Braies. Life moves a little slower here during the Fall months as snow begins to dust the tops o

Photo by @andywcoleman // A sunrise view of the moai at Ahu Tongariki on Easter Island. We arrived here in the dark to be able to wake up with the moai. The lack of sleep paid off as this scene evolved throughout the morning.
Photo by @alisonwrightphoto // April 25, 2015 a 7.8 earthquake rocked the small Himalayan country of Nepal killing more than 8,000, injuring at least 21,000 and leaving thousands of people homeless. Nepal had been my home for many years so this is story that touched me deeply. I arrived back in the

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto // Stephen Leavins sea kayaking in Penobscot Bay near Camden, Maine. To capture this image I wore a wetsuit and used a water housing to protect the camera as I swam around to capture different angles and Stephen's reflection as he paddled towards me. #Maine #seakayaking #
Photo @chrisburkard // This is a glacial river... Shot from a plane in landmannalaugar iceland. I have spent these last few years of my life obsessing on these glacial rivers. It's a personal project that has taken me high into the air to look down on these sediment flows that come from the glacier.
Photo by @KristaRossow // In the sleepy colonial town of Antigua in Guatemala, this is what rush hour looks like. When photographing in urban areas, I like to find an interesting background and then use slow shutter speeds to get motion blur with the passing vehicles. @NatGeoCreative
Photo by @CristinaMittermeier. Deep in the Amazon, where there are no roads, canoes like these ones, photographed in the Kayapó village of Aukré in the state of Pará in Brazil, are the main form of transportation. #naturelover #adventure #explore #beauty @natgeocreative #sonycamera @kayapoproject

Photo by @argonautphoto (Aaron Huey) of the #AuroraBorealis over an abandoned home on the #SnaefellsnessPeninsula in #Iceland. I chased these cosmic lights, photographing them all night, and in the last few minutes before sunrise they appeared to run across the sky like a river before disappearing!

Photo by @andywcoleman // I spent a great morning in one of my favorite snorkeling spots on Maui. This is a deeper area of reef where I have always had good luck spotting sea turtles. There were five turtles in a small area, resting on the sea floor and periodically coming to the surface for air.
How bout them curves? I noticed that the pathway leading up to Zabriskie Point had this beautiful S-shape. So I climbed a distant hill, put on a long lens, and photographed it. Sometimes the lookouts themselves are as much fun to photograph as that which they lookout over
