A flooded campground in North Carolina’s @capehatterasnps in the outer banks. The #OBX is a thin sandbar coastline that is at ground zero for storms, it’s highly susceptible to Ocean sea rise and has already been feeling those effects. I shot this photo in 2016 on assignment for @natgeo while working on a climate change story, I was blown away to see how beautiful yet fragile this place is. As hurricane Florence continues to bear down on the east coast, North Carolina is taking the brunt of it and much of this coastline is currently underwater. Sending thoughts and prayers to the residents here as the storm continues. 🙏🏻

Real estate in a #tidepool is as competitive as finding a place to live in New York City. Giant #GreenAnemone seen here living wall to wall in a 3X3 foot tide pool in @olympicnationalpark / for @natgeo

The pumice fields of #PiedraPomez #Argentina are overwhelmingly photogenic, a place that I would love to spend a more time exploring. The rock here extends for some 30 kilometers, littered with tiny canyons covered in rippled rivers of sand, I’ve never seen anything like it. It felt like a crime every time we walked across them, incriminatingly leaving foot prints as evidence. @danahrichardson @jacadatravel

Flamingos, what’s not to like? These resilient birds are among the oldest living species of birds on the planet, estimated at 50 million years old. Their beautiful pink and orange feathers are a direct result of a diet high in carotenoids ingested through shrimp and crustaceans. There are 6 species of #Flamingo on the planet, this one here is a lesser-flamingo that I photographed in South Africa. Thank you to my good friend @arjandekock for taking me to this spot 🤙🏻

Lenticular clouds looming over @rockynps at twilight. I shot this in 1999 on a @nikonusa FM2 camera, 24mm f/2.8 lens, 2 minute exposure on Fuji #Velvia. I only know that because I wrote it down on the slide 😉

Well, it’s that time of year 🍂 Fall is starting to happen here in the Rockies, it’s my favorite season but it’s too damn short. Hope you all have a chance to get out and enjoy it!

PLEASE READ AND HELP 🙏🏻 The cruelty of humans never ceases to amaze me. This year 95 fin whales, an endangered species, have already been killed, 11 of which were pregnant. The hunt isn’t yet over, an estimated 100 more will be killed in the coming weeks in Iceland. It’s all profit driven, the big question is when is enough ENOUGH? These are endangered animals, how much more clear can it be that this is a futile endeavor?? These words by my friend @paulnicklen are resoundingly true “How can we embrace the ‘Inspired By Iceland’ campaign - asking us to pledge to be responsible tourists - when the government is not holding up their end of the bargain? It’s officially our choice on what comes next—to live in a world where killing whales is acceptable, or not. We’re for a world that stops the unnecessary hunt. What’s your choice?” Please click the link in my bio to sign the petition, it takes less than 10 seconds and is extremely important. Thank you for your help and support to help stop this senseless killing of Fin Whales #StopTheHunt. #StopIcelandWhaling.

Lofty sunrise over #Argentina’s Red Lagoon, the heart of #TolarGrande. Regrettably I only had a single day here, a place you could spend a lifetime at and one I hope to see again someday.
