Morning migration: flocks of early birds fill the pre-dawn light along the Rio Grande River. Their chatty song is one more reason to rise early. #nature #light #birds #flight #sonyalpha 📷 #petemcbride

First light creeps into this time machine. I’m honored that @outsidemagazine put my new book “GrandCanyon; Between River and Rim" at the top of their list or best Holiday Photo books. Another magazine described this printed collection full of years of imagery and miles of stories as “a work of fine art and an avowal on the power and wisdom of place.” There is still time to get your hands on one for the holidays — info in the link on my bio. #gratitude #grandcanyon #betweenriverandrim #nature #conservation 📷 by #petemcbride @rizzolibooks

If you enjoy the beauty and wildlife of the polar regions, check out my good friend and fellow photographer @paulnicklen new book “Born to Ice”. The photos are stunning and stories are powerful reminders how these frozen gems make our world so special, but also a call to protect these delicate, changing ecosystems. I’ve known Paul for two decades and been inspired by his passion and vision—Keep it up Paulie. To learn more, go to @paulnicklen. #books #nature #wildlife #photography #paulnicklen #conservation #polar #bears #penguins #whales #borntoice

My friend and fellow @natgeo photographer @amivitale has produced a stunning book on Pandas. This holiday season she is offering some Panda love— this what she says. “To celebrate the holidays, I'm offering a special package to bring panda joy into the lives of your friends and family.” Check out @amivitale to find deals on her prints of Yeye in the Mist AND an autographed copy of her first book Panda Love: The Secret Lives of Pandas. “China may be on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador, and "Panda Love" documents the process of putting the wild back into an icon. All print profits are donated to the people and organizations caring for the environment.” Congrats Ami! @natgeo @natgeoimagecollection @thephotosociety @nikonusa

Winter Light: -20 makes for cool backlight — and even colder hands when shooting aerial pics above the “American Nile” — The Colorado River. #chasingrivers #nature #aerial 📷 #petemcbride From my first book “Flowing Through Conflict” #sonyalpha

A shape-shifting ballet of black birds do a murmuration dance to avoid predators many believe. How they conduct their orchestra of illusion I don’t know, but it stopped me in my tracks. And as soon as it started, the performance was over. 🎥 @pedromcbride #nature #awe #birds #gratitude #murmuration #swarm #petemcbride @walkaboutlifefilms

I’ve had the privilege to know @savetheelephants for decades. They work on the frontlines protecting elephants across Africa using GPS technology and creating tolerance between humans and these gentle giants. 140,000 elephants have already been killed due to poaching and human wildlife conflicts. Consider giving these intelligent creatures the support they deserve by lending a hand to this amazing group that is helping insure elephants are in our future. For more info go to the link in my bio. All donations are doubled today! 🎥 by @pedromcbride Edit by @jimaikman. #givingtuesday #elephants #africa #conservation @savetheelephants

I’m excited that my new book - The Grand Canyon: Between River and Rim - is back in stock. This holiday season, see our iconic national park, on the eve of its 100th birthday, like never before and support the @grand_canyon_conservancy in the process (a portion of proceeds help them protect this national treasure). Discounted books are available at the link in my bio. A giant thanks to so many for helping make this three-year marathon adventure a @rizzolibooks reality. #happyholidays #grateful #grandcanyon #betweenriverandrimbook #nature #silence 🎥 @pedromcbride Edit @michellescreative Turn on sound.
