3am start for my next adventure with @natgeoexpeditions & @lindbladexp. Looking forward to exploring #Belize’s world class reefs and the incredible Mayan site of #Tikal. #ngexpeditions #lindbladexpeditions #guatemala


The Great Backyard Bird Count is underway this weekend! A fresh afternoon snowfall here in Virginia, made the backyard even more scenic. My 6 year old daughter and I spotted (24) House finches (4) Robin, (2) Canada Geese, (2)American crow, (3) Morning dove, (1) Song Sparrow, (3) Cardinal, (2) Mallard duck, (4) Bluebird and (32) Red-winged blackbird. Take a look outside. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll find! #GBBC. @audubonsociety #communityscience


Sponsor Giveaway! @tiffencompany has generously offered to donate a complimentary Lowel #GoLite to all participants on our upcoming Costa Rica Photo Workshop. These small, lightweight continuous LED lights will be an incredible asset during our nighttime photo walks. // Pictured here is a Costa Rica brook frog or Red-eyed stream frog. #tiffenfilters #photoworkshop #OsaPeninsula #photosafari #photoexpedition #nanpapix #Lowel


I’ll share one final image from this past week’s photo trip out west. Here are the Toadstools at Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Some beautiful light and dramatic clouds for our last sunset in #Utah. #nikon100 #tiffenfilters #nature @visitutah


Had a great tour with @horseshoebendtours through #SecretCanyon yesterday morning. As a photographer, it was a great experience to be part of a small group tour with a friendly guide that let us explore on our own. #slotcanyon #Arizona #natureart @natgeofineart @natgeocreative @tiffencompany @acratech_usa @nikonusa #nikon100 #natgeotravel


A 2:20 AM start for our nighttime hike into #TheWave. We hiked under starlight and had some fun photographing it for several hours before anyone else arrived. Hands down this was one of the most awe inspiring natural landscapes I’ve ever witnessed. #Arizona #greathikes #natgeo #natgeotravel @natgeofineart @natgeocreative @visitarizona @nikonusa #nikon100 @natgeo #natureart


A classic look at Horseshoe Bend. No pretty sunset tonight but some dramatic clouds and a whole lot of wind.


No rest for the weary on this trip. Up at the crack of dawn today for an incredible sunrise at Mesa Arch, #Canyonlands National Park. @tiffencompany @natgeocreative @visitutah


Orion blazed a trail through Delicate Arch last night. #archesnationalpark @visitutah #nationalparks #Utah #


Tonight’s sunset at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. 1st day ever out here for me. Utah, you’ve set the bar high! #archesnationalpark #delicatearch @tiffencompany @natgeocreative @visitutah


Let’s play a game. Can you spot what’s hiding here? Make a guess before you swipe left for the reveal. Bonus points if you get the species correct!


Come join me at our spring photo workshop down in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. There are still a few spots left. Come join @stevemorello and myself for a week long photo safari at the @crocodilebay. This hummingbird was photographed within steps of my room at the resort. Incredible wildlife photo opportunities await us! For more info, visit the link in my bio. #photoworkshop2018 #costaricaphototours #costaricaphotoworkshop
