The mother goddess of the Himalayas. Traditional Tibetan Buddhists still believe climbing the mountain is like stepping on the head of their god. But during a series of crazy events during our expedition we learned why a lot of Buddhists are climbing it against this inherent wisdom.

Today, we celebrate you. Watch the full #BeAlpha film above. • • “Don’t go because someone tells you to go. Don’t go because everyone else is going. Don’t go because it would make you look good. Or because you can make IT look good. Go because you have to go. Go because it was written on your DNA. Go because it pours out from every seam and dream... And every map that leads you to the unknown. And every thought that seems to come back to the one thing that rips you out of bed at night. And when you go... Go with eyes open. Go fast. Go nimble. Go passionately. Go without sleep if you have to. However you go, go all in. And if you don’t like the rhythm, just change the beat. And as you go, remember... The world is waiting for your perspective.” #WorldPhotographyDay #SonyAlpha

📷: @mmeyers76 “This was my first visit to Oregon, and my first Sony Kando Trip, and I couldn’t have been more impressed with both. Mornings here were beautiful with fog over the lake every day - perfect shooting conditions. I was also fortunate enough to get my hands on an a7R IV to capture it all, and blown away by the detail from that massive sensor. Even cropped way in you can still make out @senseofhuber’s camera strap!” | #SonyAlpha a7R IV | 24mm f1.4 GM | f2.8 | 1/125 sec | ISO 400 | #SonyKandoTrip #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.

Sunsets are the photographic equivalent of fast food. And if you’re sitting there thinking that fast food is disgusting, you’re either lying to yourself or you’ve never had fast food.

Part 2: this is the art box used as the base inside my brother’s promotional poster (see previous post). It hangs in my office where I look at it each day. Draped over it is the khata scarf presented to me after I summitted Mount Everest into 2016, an accomplishment that my brother would have been extremely proud of. #siredmundhillary #tenzingnorgay #everest #art #design #illustration #artbox #brothersforever

When your passion for self promotion is greater than your passion for photography there is a problem. And yes I recognize the irony in this statement and try consider every single day in what I share, why I share it and if it brings any positivity into the world. Never before have the art & commerce side of a “creatives” life been so intertwined and it’s always important to take a step back and reflect.

An abandoned Anglican mission house on Qikiqtaruk-Herschel Island. Built in 1916, this empty shell of a building is now home to the largest colony of black guillemots in the western Arctic (swipe to see these birds). While this island was first recorded by Europeans in 1826 (Franklin Expedition) it has over 1000 years of human use and occupation, dating back to the Thule culture, ancestors of the present day Inuvialuit. I took this photo in 2017 while on an @insidenatgeo supported grant to explore tundra change across the Arctic. I’m now headed back to the island with researchers Isla Myers-Smith, @gndaskalova, and several others from @teamshrub to expand our understanding of long-term vegetation changes on this island and beyond. @dartmoutharctic #WhyArctic #Qikiqtaruk #Arctic #YukonParks

Don’t tell anyone, but I thought puffins looked like this year round. A symptom of visual education by @instagram? Turns out this is just their set of summer breeding clothes - in winter they lose color in their beaks and feet, their white highlights and - in the case of this particular puffin species - the white crest on their heads. Maybe it’s tiring being so photogenic. More striking than their coloration is their sheer abundance in the Kurils and regions of the Sea of Okhoskt! Huge aggregations of these colorful birds spend their days fishing along the rocky coasts. Their rather clumsy take-offs are balance by their elegant swimming abilities. Only they could make the hairstyle and eyes of a white-walker so svelte. #FromKurilsWithLove @taylorfreesolo @renan_ozturk @chrisburkard @tedhesser @rishisugla @_ryanhill_ @povel @e_kaspersky @alejandroarango13 @ollyru999 @donreverendo @tomorrow_unlocked

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.

Just a little something while I sift the 500, mainly close up #iphonexs photos I took on Tyuleny Island yesterday. The tranquility and cuteness in this video is highly misleading. Approximately 40,000 adult Fur Seals and Steller Sea Lions reside on this tiny 120x500m island at any given time during summer, not counting the additional 140,000 that are out fishing, or the 40-50,000 pups. Including this one. Add to that about 400,000 Common Murrs (penguin looking bird), and throw is a bunch of Puffins, Seagulls and five of @bigdaddivladi dedicated PhD students and you got yourself one helluva party. The constant roaring cacophony of sounds, the smell from hell and the rawest views of life and death all mixed into one big scene has certainly put a new perspective on these types of scenes in the David Attenborough (eg: @ourplanet ) nature documentaries that I have known and loved, and which have shaped much of my previous life as a dedicated couch explorer.

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 STUNNING SYMMETRY OF ALAID VOLCANO. SEE BELOW . Вулкан Алаид (и остров Атласова, что здесь одно и тоже) имеет изумительно правильные формы. Местные гиды утверждают, что многие японцы считают его прекраснее даже священной Фудзи-сан. Про красоту вулкана можно рассказывать очень долго, но лучше посмотреть на него своими собственными глазами. ---8<--- The main thing about Alaid (pronounced A-la-eed) volcano-island is how it looks. It’s just so smoothly spherical. So much so, our guides told us how many Japanese who visit say it’s even more beautiful than their sacred Mount Fuji! I could write at length describing the stunning symmetry of Atlasov-Alaid, but, as I often say, why bother when I’ve this time-lapse video. . #kurils #russia #курилы #россия #volcano #вулканы #fromkurilswithlove

Кто догадается - где? Any guess where am I? . . . Сингапур - тепло, Куала-Лумпур - жарко! На самом деле это Путраджая - новый город в Малайзии, основан в 1995г. С прицелом перенести сюда столицу подальше от пробочного Куала-Лумпура. Зачем я здесь и что тут интересного - об этом расскажу чуть позже. ---8<--- It's neither Singapore, nor Kuala Lumpur, but very close. This is Putrajaya - a new city in Malaysia built from scratch planned to accommodate the country's administrative powers away from overcrowded Kuala Lumpur. Why I'm here and what's worthy sightseeing here - coming soon!

Russia. I never would have thought I’d find myself here. I spent about 14 days aboard a vessel traveling from Russia along the Kuril Islands with a legendary crew of humans. Still not sure if everything I witnessed was real.. but I know I couldn’t have dreamt it all. This was one of the highlights for me, documenting the newly erupted Raikoke volcano. A scene that will be etched in my brain forever🌋 @chrisburkard @renan_ozturk @rishisugla @jtkerby @taylorfreesolo @bigdaddivladi @e_kaspersky @tomorrow_unlocked
