#AlphaCollective member @nyroamer shares this shot taken on the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls, looking down at one of the tourist boats floating in the rapid waters at the base of the Falls 😱 "Looking down at the boat full of tourists in rain coats, which appear to be so tiny in comparison to the magnificent falls, is the perfect scale. The swirling and dramatic rapids provide the perfect backdrop. I find the "focus and recompose: technique, can be useful when photographing in various environments such as this – this was a misty, foggy weather day, where focusing on the subject wasn’t as easy as it looked. I locked the focus on the moving boat, after recomposing, allowing me to capture the much sought after subject (which was the boat)." | #SonyAlpha a7 II | 28-70mm | 38mm | f4 | 1/1600 | ISO 200 | #BeAlpha

Brandywine Falls📍captured by photographer @andyhvu 👏 👏 “This waterfall is my personal favorite in Canada. I love how symmetrical, tall, and powerful it is. This was taken during sunset and there was not much light at the bottom of the falls so I was able to snap a 2 sec exposure without the need of ND filter." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16-35mm F2.8 GM | F14 | 2 sec | ISO 50 | #BeAlpha

A funny thing happened this spring while I was on Mount Everest. My son Matt, 17, picked up my book, The Impossible Climb, entirely of his own volition. “I had no idea you did all that stuff,” he texted me, when I was still on the mountain. He must have been inspired by Alex Honnold and some of the others whose stories I tell in the book because when I got home I was shocked to discover that Matt had been climbing virtually every day since I had left. I have always had a soft touch with climbing when it comes to my children. After everything I’ve experienced during my 34 years as a climber, I have a profound respect for the sport’s inherent danger, and I would never want someone I love to get into it because they thought I wanted them to. I figured it went without saying that if anyone ever decided they wanted to try climbing, all they had to do was ask. For 18 years, no one asked. Then, two years ago, my daughter Lilla said, “Hey, so what’s up with climbing?” And then this spring, it was Matt’s turn. Since I’ve been home, Matt has become my main climbing partner, which is both awesome and terrifying. We made a goal to climb Recompense, a classic, multi-pitch 5.9 on Cathedral Ledge, by the end of the season. It took us a couple tries to get on it because of crowds, but we finally completed the ascent a few days ago, and I’m proud to say that Matt got it done with no falls. I probably shouldn’t say this, because I know he and Lilla will see this post, and I am kind of breaking my own rule, but I hope they will both stick with climbing. I have always believed that caring deeply about things is what gives orientation and purpose to our lives. We all need something, so why not climbing? @matthewsynnott @lilla_synnott @thenorthface_climb @revo @sterlingrope @hamptonkew @willsynnott

This time last year I was cruising in Nova Scotia with @bookofsamuel and @scottdaniellee aboard Camelot, our 32’ ketch. The more sailing I do, the more it sucks me in, and while this may seem counterintuitive, I decided to put Camelot up for sale after I brought her home to Portland, Maine at the end of last season. I found a buyer almost immediately. Currently we are boat-less looking for our next vessel. My dream is to do some offshore sailing and perhaps to head north, so I have narrowed the search accordingly. I was worried that we might miss this season, but Hampton’s father Alan and her cousin Julia came to the rescue with a charter out of Narragansett Bay. It was supposed to be a 1970s Irwin 41 but that boat developed an electrical problem the night before we were supposed to pick it up so we instead ended up on a 2018 Jeanneau 44DS. It’s a very different boat than what I am currently looking for, but it’s beautiful and has taken great care of us over the past week. So far we have visited Newport, Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket (pictured here). Most of these are spots I had never previously visited. As I write this we are underway, heading for Cuttyhunk Island. There are six of us aboard, including Hampton’s cousins @akew96 and @christinakew, who we are teaching to sail. I can’t be sure, but it would seem we are setting the hook deep.

Likir Gompa, Ladakh: Monk's robes. In another hall we were privileged to sit in a ceremony but I feel guilty wandering around snapping and prefer to be 'in the moment' with the chanting. Luckily, this hall was empty, so we had the best of both worlds. I do wonder though, how long places like this will thrive, rather than just survive. The entrance fee was a mere 20 rupees, 28 US cents, similar to many monasteries in the Ladakh region. I always leave considerably more but if tourists use that as a guideline, even doubling or tripling that charge amounts to very little. Perhaps a ticket system that charges one or two hundred rupees, waiving the fee from anyone who complains, might be better? #ProjectHimalaya #WhereWouldYouRatherBe

Throw-Back-Thursday to when a bunch of my friends and I got together (well, mostly we were corralled by the indomitable @treefighter) to plant white bark pine seedlings in #grandtetonnationalpark because the white bark pine feed the squirrels and the grizzly bears and the birds. And they are the most majestic trees. And we are losing them to climate change induced beetle kill... Sometimes you don’t know what else to do but try to make it better even if you’re not sure your efforts will make a difference. I think it’s still worth trying. Better than not trying. Maybe?

We humans, we creativity-driven species, are such wonderful weirdos I just can’t believe we get to be alive right now and MAKE THINGS, out of our imagination! We create as we strive to define our world, our selves, and this ever evolving story of life. But none of that exists without the strength of community. I feel honored to be a @sonyalpha Artisan and part of this family of creatives and innovators. And so proud of my friend @curtismorgan for putting together this representation of our spirit and ethos. We are all on a bit of a wild ride right now with our survival on this planet, our ability to co-exist, and yet the concern for how we can use storytelling to come together is simultaneously felt with exuberance and joy for just how good we have it to even be here at all with the tools to communicate across every boundary imaginable. Looking forward to what this next year has to come with the @sonyalpha @sonyalphafemale family and my fellow teammates in creative mayhem @renan_ozturk @chrisburkard @paulnicklen @cristinamittermeier @ben_moon @pedromcbride @kaylalindquist @mparns @nancyborowick @merakoh and many more. #bealpha #bealphafemale #beweirdandbekindandbeyourself (link to full piece in profile)

The rim of Raikoke volcano just a week after its eruption. A once green and lush environment turned completely uninhabitable in a matter of moments.. possibly seconds. On one hand new land formations were created, extending the shoreline by hundreds of feet.. essentially the island itself was growing. On the other hand.. an unimaginable death toll to all animal species living on or near the island. Ultimately a not so microcosm of the circle of life. It will be interesting to watch this island and see the changes it makes in the years to come & how quickly life returns.

Just got back from a few much needed days in the wilderness backpacking with my Dad, Brother & a few close friends. A needed reset in our hectic & daily life where we solved all the worlds problems around the campfire & told no one.. 😂 I’m sure many of you can relate. Grateful for that time.. these days it feels more and more important to make time for those you love in places you feel inspired by. . Here’s a random iPhone video along the way. More to come in my stories.

On a rare sunny day on Herschel Island this summer, Team Shrub member Luke Hull (@lhull87) and I set off to drone-map as much of the island’s interior as possible while the good weather lasted. Tens of thousands of drone pics and several hours later (we stitch them together to make hi-res maps)...it was somehow still sunny and we had no more batteries left to fly drones. Time to adventure! We set off with our bear spray and cameras to walk to the other side of the island. As we approached the huge thaw cliffs to the north, Luke spotted a flash of color. Then another...and another. The entire hillside was swarming with fox pups! We crept up and waited to see if any would approach. This dark pup was the most inquisitive, checking us out before heading back into its den. Despite its coloration, this is a red fox - a species that has been displacing Arctic foxes from parts of their native range. Running into foxes on Herschel Island varies from year to year. Sometimes they come and play around camp (check out some of @sandra.angers.b incredible shots from 2018), whereas other years there’s almost no sign of them. So goes life in the Arctic - hard to predict what you’re going to get! Scientific and photographic work made possible in part by grants from @insidenatgeo to Dr. Isla Myers-Smith (@teamshrub) and PhD student Gergana Daskalova (@gndaskalova). #YukonParks #Arctic #Qikiqtaruk #HerechelIsland #Arctic #Canada #TeamShrub #NatGeo #insidenatgeo

Arctic storm walk with Dr. Isla Myers-Smith (@teamshrub) - #NationalGeographic #Explorer and Arctic tundra scientist. Words from here recently posted blog at: teamshrub.com/2019/09/07/weathered-in/ ———- “The end of the field season is always a strange time - a limbo between Arctic fieldwork and the return to the rest of your life. You have a list of goals for the summer that are mostly ticked off. But there is still a mad rush to get the last things done. You say to yourself, ‘this is the last time I will walk around the spit’ or ‘this will be the last sauna’...”. Read the rest of her post to find out just how wrong we all were about our fantasies of a timely departure! Part of this fieldwork was supported with a grant from @insidenatgeo #Yukon #HerschelIsland #Qikiqtaruk #Canada #YukonParks @dartmoutharctic #UEdinburgh

It doesn’t look like much here, and we have much better drone footage from @tedhesser (check Teds Instagram for a sneak peak) @renan_ozturk @chrisburkard @_ryanhill_ and stills from @NatGeo photographer @jtkerby - but this whale is one of possibly only 40 living North Pacific Right Whales. The chances of us capturing footage of one in the middle of the Sea of Okhotsk, 120km and 14 hours from nearest land is astronomically small, and yet another example of how lucky we’ve been on this expedition. I’ve been told @nrdc_org has started a global initiative to try to save the remaining ones, so head over in their direction if you want to get behind it.

Mostly posting this in case anybody feels the same way (stuck in the social media vortex): Taking a bit of time away from IG from tomorrow since I think breaks from it are good (for me). Does anybody else feel their creativity zapped from being on here too much? Or that you're frustrated for all the wrong reasons? I'm hoping to come back with pieces of writing that feel a bit more nuanced, dense, meaningful, and fleshed out than the ideas I put out here now. Work I am doing for no other reason than wanting to create it and get it out of my system. For some reason instagram occasionally becomes a bit of distraction from parsing apart what I'm thinking and feels like a roadblock in clarifying the details of what it is *I believe* and how to articulate it. Details that require time and research and conversation to figure out.. I'm having trouble with a world of inputs and external opinions endlessly at my fingertips. Just a reminder that social media is a tool that should serve you and not vice versa, in case any body else feels stuck. Will add an email address in my profile if anyone wants to connect when I'm not on here :) Pic by new friend @jtkerby while on #fromkurilswithlove . #instabreak

Unedited (aka probably grammar errors ahead) excerpt from my journal: As we made our way down the footpath that crisscrossed long abandoned Soviet military roads and rusted iron barrels, we marveled over the chance to see this site rarely unmasked by cloud. Places like this, when they allow themselves to be seen, make easy claims that they deserve our care and attention. And maybe that’s what this place was asking us for. As my group made a final descent down to the black beach, built up slowly through millennia of breaking down basalt into sand, I wondered about other places rendered invisible not by fog but by other means. Places and people with beauty not of the jaw dropping variety that can make people stop at first sight, but those of a more subtle kind of aesthetic. Ones imbued with history and culture, from microbes to humans, that aren’t so easily captured by footage. For groundwater sitting for millennia beneath the surface. For worms sifting through soil. How do we lift the fog and remind ourselves of their beauty too? So we can not only care about places like this, which are worth our attention and heart, but for that which transcends the physical in ways much more difficult to explain. #fromkurilswithlove Photo (not mine) taken by some combo of: @renan_ozturk @chrisburkard @_ryanhill_ @tedhesser @taylorfreesolo @povel @alejandroarango13 @jtkerby @e_kaspersky #climatechange #ecology #oceans #writing #volcanoes #nature

THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF KAZAKHSTAN: DETAILS BELOW... . Ещё много есть чего рассказать о нашем Большом Курильском Приключении-2019 и экспресс-забеге в пустыню Гоби, а их сзади уже подпирают свежие сводки из траектории моих передвижений. Посему объявляется кратковременный перерыв в перечисленных выше историях с целью восстановления хронологической справедливости повествования :) Сегодня - о Казахстане. Во-первых, нашему региональному офису исполнилось 15 лет. По этому поводу отработал плотный рабочий график - пресс-конференция, вопросы-ответы, деловые встречи, презентации для партнёров и клиентов + праздник - дружно и весело, с песнями и аттракционами! А во-вторых, надо бы украсить бизнес-тему красивыми картинками :) Сказано - сделано! В эфире - Большое Алматинское озеро, оно же БАО, и Алатау, Чимбулак. Я ещё в старые-недобрые советские времена много хорошего слышал об этих местах. И, само собой, намагнитился. Ай красивенько! ---8<--- I’ve still plenty more to tell and show you about our Kurils-2019 expedition, and also about my recent trip to Mongolia and its Gobi Desert, but in the meantime I’ve been visiting yet further countries less-visited – including… Kazakhstan! Now, I know I’m behind on my Kuril-and-Gobi catch-up, but I don’t want that tardiness to cross over into other trips. Accordingly, herewith, a brief side excursion – to Almaty. Firstly, our regional office has just turned 15th. There was the day’s work, which was non-stop: press conference, Q&A, presentations for partners and clients, and the evening’s celebrations. Which were just how we liKe them: fun, friendly, singing-and-dancing, and with assorted attractions. Secondly, after the work – and the play – it was time for a spot of tourism. So off we popped to Big Almaty Lake and Shymbulak. What a beauty!
