A serious case of side-eye from this moose.

PSA: I wasn’t close to the moose—probably 50 yards. The annoyed look is probably for another photographer who was getting too close. You should always keep your distance from wildlife, for their sake, and yours.
This sight of the sun rising over the clouds was bound to stop folks in their tracks!

I made this time-lapse video of the sunrise at Haleakala Summit in Haleakala National Park on the island of Maui, HI sometime in February this year. We almost missed this spectacle because of the mystery surrounding the starting time of parking reservation, but luckily managed to book a slot with a mere 3 spots remaining! What ensued was a near night out to grab a spot at the summit (else we'd be stuck at the Haleakala Visitor Center parking a few hundred feet below!) and battling the bitter cold and merciless winds as we waited for the sun to make its appearance! No wonder @amonajourney and I love sunsets more than sunrises! 😂

Excerpt from the #recreationgov website: "Rising 10,023 (3,005 m) feet above sea level, Haleakala means "house of the sun" and is where demigod Maui lassoed the sun, slowing its passage so people had more time to dry kapa (cloth) and grow food. The dormant volcano's "crater" is actually a valley carved by erosion."

I’m really starting to embrace my 70-200 to focus in on more of detailed image. Funny what you can find through the telephoto lens that perhaps your eye doesn’t catch. .

The sun setting on the lowest point in North America #deathvalley #dantesview
I got to this location well in advance of sunrise. It was a gray gloomy morning, and I was not expecting anything spectacular. I framed the shot, timed the waves and then I took a long exposure. I think this is my favorite shot that I have ever taken. What a spectacular location. .

SWIPE LEFT 👈👈👈......."Tunnel Vision" The Brushy Mountain Spur trail is narrow and thick.  Some spots so narrow you can't place your feet side by side.  If you navigate this section expect to get lots of crap in your shoes and hit in the face with branches.

What a joy to finally glimpse my first elk calf! The calf was scurrying up the hill to a secure location. After finding a small bush it laid down hidden from plain sight to rest. Being born and joining the Yellowstone crew is a hard days work. #babyelk •

Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park includes the National Historic Landmarked archaeological site known as the Honokōhau Settlement. The park was established on November 10, 1978, for the preservation, protection and interpretation of traditional native Hawaiian activities and culture.⠀
⠀
Several restored trails include about one mile of the Māmalahoa Trail. It was built in the mid-19th century, and evolved over the years into the Hawaii Belt Road which encircles the entire island. The coastal trail is part of the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail. [wikipedia]⠀

Any time I drive to this side of @glaciernps park, it’s to camp and summit. Come July it’s absolute craziness here, and this summer @glacier_national_park will see visitation records broken last year increased by an estimated 20%.
I have to get here early to beat the heat and the people. And by *early* I mean leave the house at 3/4am
•
This summer will be a struggle with all the visitors, social media encouraging mass natural tourism (yeah, I’m guilty too, and I am a seasonal resident) and why are we advertising Montana on billboards on the California Highway? (serious question...if anyone can answer it, do we need people here that badly?)
•
Anyway, the other day we drove 2.5 hours over, walked 20 minutes, sat here at this spot by the lake and talked for hours. We got to simply enjoy the park for what it is, and I rarely take the time to do that. We discussed love, life, the park, politics, tourism, etc. I’ll savor that time because it’s likely there will be no other time this summer I could come to this spot and enjoy a totally peacefulenvironment.
•
.👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼If you come to #glaciernationalpark this summer, be mentally prepared for breathtaking views, crystal lakes, and epic hikes...paired with lots of traffic, noise pollution, crowded trails, and full parking lots. PLEASE *dont feed/approach the animals, heed the signs, bring refillable water bottles, and do not litter ANYTHING especially your toilet paper!! 🙏🙏

Mountain schoolers attend a park ranger evening program on the second night of mountain school. They get to handle a skull and determine as a trail group if it is a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore and guess what animal they believe it to be. They then present their observations to the whole group. Park rangers explain the different animals in the North Cascades ecosystem and why they are important to this place. 📸: Gina Roberti

Visited the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado last week. The landscape and scenery of this National Park is amazing and unlike any that I have ever seen before in my life. I love the contrast of the landscape and using my Singh-Ray Gold-N-Blue polarizer really brings out the colors. I hope to return again someday to this beautiful place.  #americasbestidea #americansouthwest #americanwest #coloradoadventures #coloradobound #coloradogram #coloradolove #coloradotography #colorfulcolorado #explorecolorado #findyourpark #goparks #greatsanddunes #greatsanddunesnationalpark #landscape_photography #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #nationalparkjunkie #nationalparkservice #nationalparkstraveler #np10k #onlyincolorado #sangredecristomountains #singhrayfilters #visitcolorado #weareparks #westbysouthwest #westernusa #yourpubliclands

Hiked 1.5 miles into the canyon this morning along Bright Angel Trail. We got started just after sunrise so we had the trail to ourselves for long stretches. Great way to start the day.

It was windy when we hiked out into the White Sands.  We found a spot tucked low between high dunes to set up camp but it was no use.  Out on the dunefield the wind was relentless.  It carried the sand cascading down the slopes and turned the horizon into a gritty haze.  The gypsum created the finest sand I’d ever seen.  Powder-like, it found it’s way under the rain tarp and began to fill the bottom of my tent.  It snuck it’s way inside my closed backpack to fill the pockets and it embedded itself in the fibers of my felt hat.  We endured the sand stinging wind for hours hoping it would die down but when dark storm clouds began to gather on the horizon we decided to break camp and hike out.  I was looking forward to a night on the dunes, and envisioned laying out under a sky of infinite stars.  For fear of what the blowing sand would do to my camera I kept it packed away, my only photos coming from my phone.  I was bummed but happy I got to experience the White Sands.  I knew I’d have to come back again, soon.🌬🌪 .

Throwback to my first week seeing a cactus grow in the wild. I kept abruptly waking Elliot up, grabbing at his arm and yelling about every single freakin’ mesa, butte & cactus on the side of the highway. 🌵 Little did he know my excitement wasn’t going to stop there when I saw this gem jutting out of the canyon wall over the Rio Grande. .
.
Not that the river was deep by any means, but I wasn’t sure if I would be able to climb across to the other landing & get a photo. I volunteered Elliot to climb over and check it out for me 😅 I made it across & took the photo. Turns out you’ll never know what you’re capable of until you try.

A three hour drive from San Francisco took us to Yosemite, one of the most popular national parks in the US. Home to more than 20 waterfalls, the largest granite piece in the world, glaciers and legendary hikes; Yosemite boasts some of the best hiking trails and beautiful views! Alongside Zion, it was one of our favourite national parks.🌳🍁 What is your favourite national park?

As a wildlife photographer, there’s a feeling of exhilaration that comes over you when everything lines up for that perfect shot... The lighting, the POV, a few blades of grass hanging out of the mouth, etc. This is the most beautifully colored grizzly bear I have ever seen. What an amazing creature. I am just stoked about how this shot turned out. Hope you all enjoy it as well. #savethegrizzlies -

Pardon my shoddy attempt at alluding to my completing three centuries in terms of Insta posts (300. Sparta. Get it?!). It's not a big achievement, but reaching this milestone feels good because, for starters, it means that I've been clearing up my huge backlog of pictures, even if at a snail's pace. Plus given my pathetic memory, piecing together a memorable collage from certain noteworthy moments in my life will give me something to look back on fondly. Talk about focusing on the bigger picture ;)
.
.
Many thanks to the 500-odd folks (not all odd though, some normal even :p) who've tagged along to be a part of my journey. Without you folks, I would've continued this trip nonetheless, but it's more fun to have company along the way.
.
Talking about company, it's my constant companion and muse @amonajourney whom I'm most grateful to (and, not to mention, for). Not only did she introduce me to @instagram 3 years ago, but she also became the unwitting (and sometimes unwilling!) subject in most of my clicks :D

This picture was clicked at Devil's Golf Course, Death Valley, CA, in 2016 during what was our first trip to a National Park in the US. Since then, we've visited over 15 of the 60 National Parks out here, and each one of these beautiful places has left us awestruck. Given our insatiable appetite for travelling and our immense love for nature, Amo and I plan to cover as many NPs as time, money and work permit.
Spot the SPARTAn! . . Pardon my shoddy attempt at alluding to my completing three centuries in terms of Insta posts (300. Sparta. Get it?!). It's not a big achievement, but reaching this milestone feels good because, for starters, it means that I've been clearing up my huge backlog of pictures, even if at a snail's pace. Plus given my pathetic memory, piecing together a memorable collage from certain noteworthy moments in my life will give me something to look back on fondly. Talk about focusing on the bigger picture ;) . . Many thanks to the 500-odd folks (not all odd though, some normal even :p) who've tagged along to be a part of my journey. Without you folks, I would've continued this trip nonetheless, but it's more fun to have company along the way. . Talking about company, it's my constant companion and muse @amonajourney whom I'm most grateful to (and, not to mention, for). Not only did she introduce me to @instagram 3 years ago, but she also became the unwitting (and sometimes unwilling!) subject in most of my clicks :D . .

Started from the bottom now we're here 😜
•Tablelands scenery is quite unique, surrounded by the Earth's mantle which is normally found far below the Earth's crust. During a plate collision the mantle was pushed up, which occurred half a billion years ago.

Fun fact! I actually made a similar image to this one last year during my visit to @badlandsnps . The clouds in this image, I think, help complete it a bit more. Yellow Mounds is definitely my favorite section of this park! Enjoy the day friends ✌

This is from a couple months ago. Sunrise was incredible that morning but it evolved very quickly. The light changed and then dissipated in what felt like seconds. I, of course, on that morning decided to shoot a scene I had never photographed before... which left me scrambling a bit. Speaking of scrambling... newborns! No, I’m kidding, not to much scrambling yet, I think that comes later. My wife and I are both loving life at the moment, happy to just sit and stare at our child. I can’t imagine what it’s like for those who have to go back to work after a birth. I’m my own boss and my wife is a teacher (she has to use her sick days for it but at least she gets a leave, plus summer), so we are lucky in that way. The thought of my wife enduring what she did and then NOT being able to just hang out with her child all day is appalling to me. So, I guess if I’m giving any advice to expecting parents it’s this, and you’ve heard it before... cherish these first moments, spend these days staring at your kid. Any advice I give will be something you’ve heard before. I heard it all but never truly took it to heart, and neither will you, but when it happens you will understand. I promise.

@CuyahogaValleyNPS is littered with truly awesome spots. Everett Covered Bridge is one of them.
