I love the great outdoors so was determined to get some mountain-time in. With camera in hand, I headed out from Cape Town early one morning for a hike up Table Mountain. Low cloud was setting in so I was not sure what I was going to see. Nonetheless I pushed on through the cold; legs burning and lungs heaving now.
I finally reached the summit and it was a complete white-out! Cloud surrounded me cloaking every direction. I waited hoping the breeze would blow it away. Not happening.
Feeling unfulfilled I headed back down. After a short time, I felt the warm sun on my head, stopped, looked eagerly across the ridge and was rewarded by this view of amazing peaks and hues! Nature’s show was brief but long enough for me to force my near-numb fingers to get my camera together and capture this amazing sight! 👆
She found me and I found her. 💚

No fancy landscape setting with this one...just some corn, some shallow DOF on that corn...and a fire in the sky!!😍 This is the result of an entirely last minute / when you you see those clouds (those perrrrrfect after rain or storm clouds!!) just before sunset. / So you decide it’s time to take a break from your homework, grab your camera and head for that perfect barn in the country! And when you end up not finding that perfect barn in time (🤨), the sun ended up going behind the horizon (😩)....you make the best of it and take what you can get so you can catch that fire while you still can! So here I present afterglow insaaanity🔥🔥🔥🔥...and a corn field! 😁🚜🌽 #sunset#field#farm#country#countryfeatures#nikonnofilter#agameoftones#visualambassadors #fifty_shades_of_twilight #goandcapturethelight#ipulledoverforthis #hey_ihadtosnapthat #explore_countryside #trb_rurex #sunrise_and_sunsets #fiftyshades_of_nature #michigan#michiganders #igers_midwest #puremichigan#depthobsessed #explore_countryside #photooftheday#photography #colors_of_day #splendid_light #splendid_outskirts #renegade_rural
One of my favourite images from the #tmb#tourdumontblanc
I had posted a mobile snap from this scene, but for me this is the one. Looking forward to making a hugeee print out of this. #nikoneurope
p.s second image is a crop of the first to get a feeling of the scale.
Photo by @amivitale. Lions that were released and collared in a remote region of a 4,500 square kilometer Zambeze Delta area of Mozambique, feast on an antelope. They were part of an ambitious introduction of 24 lions from South Africa, the largest international translocation ever undertaken. It is estimated that that the population could grow to as many as 500 within 15 years, Already, 20 cubs have been born.
A hundred years ago, there were over 200,000 wild lions living in Africa. Today, leading researchers estimate the population to be 20,000 or less, with lions now extinct in 26 African countries. Mozambique's wildlife was decimated by the country's civil war and subsequent poaching in the last 20 years. This particular ecosystem has made a remarkable recovery except for its lions. This historic translocation might mark the point that the lions reversed their fate in Mozambique.
I covered this historic undertaking for my recent @natgeo story.

What does it mean to commit to someone for the rest of your life? How can you say you’re going to love someone forever? How can you make promises into an unknown future? What does it take to be so brave to say these things to another human being? Questions to ponder on a Tuesday night...
For nearly 2 days, my attention never strayed too far from this asymmetric hunk of rock across the valley. Here it is, under morning light, giving me a reason to leave my sleeping bag... Not for too long though.
Insane textures from my current favorite hike in Colorado, Chasm Lake... #borntowander ⛰⚡️
It is not so much about where you end up but more about where you go... #borntowander 🌤✨
Always take the time to appreciate the world that surrounds you.
Our hike to this lake today was extremely easy; it was hard to believe with such a majestic view as our reward... #keepwandering 🏔
A quick hike brought us to this spot that reminded us just how lucky we are to live on this beautiful planet... 🌍🌲✨
A life that is lived outdoors is a life that is lived wisely...🏕
I got off work & hurried home to get packed for a hike. My girlfriend & I drove nearly 2 hours to the park to find out it was $12 cash ONLY to get in... We had $5. Realizing we wouldn’t even have enough time to finish the hike before dark, we decided to explore the surrounding area. Here are some shots of the views we discovered:

An autumnal collection, a few of my favorites! I’ve been mostly out of service for the better part of a month, in Glacier, Yellowstone, and now Grand Teton and I realize I’ve basically managed to avoid the heat of summer all year chasing wildflowers. Now sitting here typing this in Jackson hole the air is brisk and the last few days have felt majorly like fall which I love because autumn is by far my favorite season! I’m excited to return to Colorado in a couple of weeks for fall color as I do every year, however I will be trying to squeeze in a return trip to glacier just before and then hopefully the sierras after that once I return from Maine. It’s shaping up to be a year of extended spring and autumn and I have no complaints about that! Where’s your favorite fall destination? I also want to remind you that @visual_wilderness is continuing their sale until the 27th and you can get my extremely in-depth Dodging and Burning tutorial on sale!!!!
