This area near Bristol Bay is incredibly rich with life from millennia of salmon spawning and dying in the rivers, bringing nutrients from the ocean to land.

Bagasse, a by-product of the sugarcane industry, is a convenient and cost-effective primary fuel source at sugar mills. Brazil is host to the largest sugar and ethanol producers in the world. Hi-tech production areas cluster in the Sao Paolo region, where sugar is sold to the international market or processed into ethanol. #brasil #sugarcane #latinamerica #agriculture #smoke

“The way that the glass behaves is often very snakelike,” says Eli Hansen, who founded Asp and Hand (@aspandhand) with his wife Blair in 2017. “The name is a reminder that anything can happen,” she says. The pair knows this well; both Eli and Blair were diagnosed with cancer at different points in life. Early in their relationship, Eli was treated for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Years later, after the birth of their two daughters, Blair designed the first of the family’s signature cups while she underwent radiation therapy for oral cancer. “The cups became my salvation,” she says.⁣⁣
“I would tell aspiring #founders not to wait for circumstances to appear perfect to start building your dream,” Blair says. “Time’s a-wasting — the world needs what you’re passionate about.”⁣⁣
In our new limited series #founders, we’re sharing the stories of amazing small business owners from all over the world. A new episode will be available every Saturday until Christmas!

Today I’m heading back to North America to talk about another park which few people are aware of. It has been called the Galapagos of North America, and it is one of the most wild, unique ecosystems on the planet.
Gwaii Haanas National Park.
Gwaii Haanas is the southern third of the Haida Gwaii Islands (aka the Queen Charlotte Islands) off the coast of British Columbia. (The last image shows where the park is on a map.)
The park can only be visited by boat or by float plane. There no roads to the park, and it wouldn’t really even be possible given that the park is a collection of islands.
In the park you will see sea lions and sea otters, as well as black bears, deer, and lion jellyfish. The landscape is also stunning with mountains meeting the sea.
As amazing as the natural beauty of the park is, the cultural significance of the park might even be greater.
The park has several Haida villages which were abandoned in the early 20th Century during an outbreak of smallpox. The sites of the villages have been allowed to return to nature, and most of them are now just hollowed out sections of forests, with some potlatch poles.
The most significant village is SG̱ang Gwaay, which has the last, original standing pre-European totem poles in the world. The Haida people believe that totem poles have a life like people, so they are being allowed to decay naturally. They clear brush around the poles, but other than that they are being allowed to decay.
Given the cold waters of the area, even if you visit in the middle of the summer, the boat trips to the park can be quite cold.
The launching point for visiting the park are the towns of Masset and Port Clements, and the airport on the island is Sandspit (YZP).

Blue hour 💙 I’ve been challenging myself recently to shoot a series with just one lens - here’s 10 shots I took on the walk to my neighborhood wine shop a couple days ago. Any guesses on the lens?
