Horses on the move, being herded by ranchers from winter pasture to the Chef Family summer ranch near Nine Pipes Montana. I took this back in the spring of 2015 while #onassignment for @natgeotravel, a fun shoot road tripping from North West Montana to the South East.
Earlier in the week I was searching through some archive drives and came across this photo: While driving through a grove of #acaciaTrees on a foggy sunrise in #Zimbabwe@danahrichardson and I were gratefully surprised to see this #WhiteRhino come walking into the misty scene. He was a lone bull, pretty disinterested in us and didn't stick around long before disappearing into the thick #savannah. Fun while it lasted
It's impossible to fly into #laguardia airport and not be moved, the sprawl of the boroughs into #newyorkcity is impressively beautiful. I was born in Staten Island New York but raised in Colorado, the mountains will always be my home but the city will always have a place in my heart
The early signs of an #algalbloom, tendrils seen here sticking to submerged foliage in North Carolina's #OBX. Blooms are the bi-product of excess nutrients in fresh water, exasperated by phosphates introduced generally through run-off or toxic dumps. Algae grows rapidly in areas were these excess nutrients exist and flourish in the heat. If you're glazing over by now just know that it's a problem world wide, affecting drinking water globally and the longer this problem goes on the worse we will be for it since fresh water is finite! The #barleyprize is offering $10 million dollars to ANYONE that can solve this global issue. I'm heading to Long Island this week with my good friend and project director @andy_mann to continue documenting this crisis, stay tuned for more! @3stringsproductions@sea_legacy
One of the true joys of my job is the people I meet along the journey. This is Hans, an #inuit born and raised in Tasiilaq Greenland. I was lucky enough to spend 11 days on a boat with Hans, where he was first mate to the captain. He had a sharp eye, a strong work ethic, silent humility and a heart of gold. A man full of life and stories. He's seen here, in this small carousel of images, just after shooting and cleaning a seal for meat he would be bringing back to his family. He was generous enough to cook us all dinner this night, preparing it the same way he grew up eating it. Understandably there may be people that see a couple of these photos as a little shocking, but for Hans this is just a way of life. Hunting seal for the Inuit is a completely sustainable way of life and one they've been practicing for thousands of years. I'm grateful to walk away from every trip I take with a new perspective of what life is like around the world, in the vast cultures that inhabit it.
A lightning fast #BarnSwallow, flying low on the surface of a pond catching insects effortlessly. (Swipe through the carrousel to see more #cliffswallows and #barnswallowsfarm ) These colorful birds are extremely efficient hunters, feeding primarily on flying insects and small bugs, even in water. They thrive in human populated areas, hunting and nesting affectively on man made structures like bridges, barns, houses and buildings. Barn Swallows are wide spread, found throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas and are quite commonly seen. I shot these photos a few months ago, crouched in an icy pond for the better part of 2 hours, soaking wet and holding position! My feeble attempts to stay warm and dry we're quickly overshadowed through the sheer entertainment of impossibly trying to keep these birds in focus through a 600mm f/4 lens while they hunted! #BoulderSafari
