Brilliant maple at Naruko Gorge, one of Japan's best places to see fall colors. Japan's beloved poet, Matsuo Basho passed through here, composing poetry on the beauty of nature, in his back country journal, Narrow Road to a Far Province. #tohoku #momiji #Miyagi #autumninjapan

Bucket brigade - it’s the job of the youngest monks in the monastery to bring the morning meal of tsampa (roasted barley flour mixed with yak butter tea) to the prayer hall where the monks will be served in silence. #thikseymonastery #leh #lehladakh #sonyalpha ##A7Rlll #SEL2470GM

Thikse Monastery, Leh, Ladakh: I’m in Ladakh, India today on assignment for Sony Cameras. This is a dream job for me, matching my passion for the Tibetan world and my skills with the Sony Alpha system I’ve been using for more than 10 years. Follow us as we travel the little known Tibetan kingdom of Ladakh, aptly called, “The Land of High Passes. #sony #sonyalpha #SonyA7Rlll #lehladakh #ladakh @natgeocreative

View from my window: is it moon or sunlight? Photographed through the blue tinted glass of the 787 aircraft, it was hard for me to tell. It’s also an old cinematographer technique using blue filters to simulate night light. Flying to Singapore today on 17 hour flight; 3 more to go. #bluefilter #nightime #moonlight @natgeocreative

Friend and colleague, @pedromcbride new book, The Grand Canyon: Between River and Rim is out now - checkout this video.
.
Pete McBride:
750 miles, 13 months, eight pairs of shoes, two friends and one camera to document our iconic national park – the Grand Canyon. The story of this transect through the length of the only canyon visible from outer space is now available in the pages of a new book: The Grand Canyon; Between River and Rim. I am thrilled to see this come to life in time for the park’s 100th birthday next year. See rare vantages of this roofless cathedral but also learn how it’s at risk to change. Portions of the proceeds support the Grand Canyon Association, which helps protect the park. Thanks to @Rizzolibooks #hamptonsides #kevinfedarko for helping see this marathon reach bookstores near you. To learn more or find where to pick up a copy check out the bio link @pedromcbride. #grandcanyon #betweeenriverandrim #petemcbride
