People often ask me “Where’s your favorite travel destination?” For a long time, I struggled with that answer, the world is chalk full of amazing places. How do you pin it down to just one location? My easy answer was always, “Wherever I’m going next!” But if you really had to pin me to a specific destination, I’d probably have to say #Antarctica. The light, the landscapes and the wildlife are utterly out of this world! How about you folks, what are some of your favorite travel destinations? Photo taken around midnight while cruising in Antarctic Sound on an @natgeoexpeditions & @lindbladexp assignment. // #natgeotravel #natgeo #lindbladexpeditions #tiffenfilters #polarregion #climatechange

Had a great evening photographing the wild horses of #assateagueisland national seashore yesterday. Then spent the dark hours looking for shooting stars with amigos @jonathan_irish and @andywcoleman. What a great place to spend one of the last nights of summer. #wildhorses #assateague #assateagueislandnationalseashore # @visitmaryland #nationalpark #campinglife #tiffenfilters @tiffencompany

Had a great weekend wreck diving off the North Carolina coast. Probably one of my favorite dives, was our visit to the USS Aeolus, and its current residents of Sand tiger sharks. Many thanks to my friend @markschenker for the invite! #scuba #northcarolinadiving #sharks #ikelite #tiffenfilters #natgeo #natgeotravel #Aeolus #sandtiger #wreckdiving #wreckdive

King penguins gather at the beach near the water’s edge at Salisbury Plain on #southgeorgiaisland. The colony here is estimated to range from 120,000-200,000. The sight, the sounds and oh yeah the smell, can be incredibly overwhelming! #kingpenguin #penguins #natgeoexpeditions #lindbladexpeditions #natgeo #natgeotravel #repeatingpatterns #patternsinnature #southgeorgia #photooftheday #nature #nanpapix #nikonnofilter

Helping a family member sell a 2003 Ford Thunderbird convertible (garage kept) in pristine condition. What a better place to take it for some pics than #SkylineDrive! Only 40K miles, asking $16.5K. Serious inquires only. Direct message me for more info. #fordthunderbird #carforsale #Virginia #garagekept #carsofinstagram
