July 2017 - 🇺🇸 The mountains along the West Coast are very different than those on the East Coast of the US. This is because many of the mountains along the West Coast are still growing as the Juan de Fuca Plate is subducted beneath the North American Plate. This is why these mountains, like Mt. Hood in Oregon, reach a much higher elevation and you can find snow at their peaks, even in the middle of the summer. 🏔 #mthood #oregon #westcoast #cascades #cascademountains #landscape #landscapephotography #nature #naturephotography #earth #earthpix #earthpic #earthphotography #travel #travelphotography #amaturephotography #explorenorthamerica

May 2016 - 🇺🇸 I really enjoy my trips to Vail, Colorado. One year, I went right after the busy ski season and enjoyed the opportunity to walk through the picturesque town without the crowds. It was my second time in Vail and I thought that it was the perfect weather to explore the area for someone who doesn’t ski. This photo was taken from a covered bridge that crosses Gore Creek. #vailvillage #vail #colorado #gorecreek #springintherockies #rockies #explorevail #explorecolorado #explorenorthamerica #exploreunitedstates #landscape #landscapephotography #nature #naturephotography #earth #earthpix #earthpic #earthphotography #travel #travelphotography #amaturephotography

Our shore day on Ensenada included a boat ride, street tacos, a freshly purchased toy chick being stolen by a hungry seagull (*Noah bawling * “IT STOLE MY CHICK!!!), and Camille finding a lost wallet and being rewarded with a wooden carved sailfish as a thank-you. All in all, a sun-filled fun-filled family day in Mexico!!! #shoreday #ensenada #mexico #cruise #cruiseship #familycruise #cruisecarnival #carnivalcruise #carnivalcruiseline #sunset #seagull #seagullssuck #streettacos #streettacos 🌮 #blueskies #lostandfound #fulltimetravel #familytravel #fulltimetravelfamily #fulltimervfamily #fulltimervers #explorenorthamerica #exploremexico #carnivalinspiration #travelkids #kidstravel #choosefun

One of the things I so look forward to when traveling is seeing new and different animals in other parts of the world or even ones that are locally found, but not commonly seen where I am from. A couple years ago, when traveling to Canada, I was hoping to see moose, bear, elk, and mountain goats among other large North America mammals. I caught a glimpse of mountain goats while we were driving along, but was disappointed we didn't see more. It was just the luck of the draw. Ironically, I've gotten a better view of elk closer to home.

October 2016 - 🇺🇸 Did you know that there is a free boat ride that will give you great views of Lower Manhattan? It’s called the Staten Island Ferry and is a free service provided by the City of New York. As you venture out from Battery Park into New York Harbor you can see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn, and Lower Manhattan. 🏙 #statenislandferry #ferry #lowermanhattan #newyorkharbor #freeferry #explorenewyork #explorenewyorkstate #newyorkcity #explorenewyorkcity #cityscape #cityscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #amaturephotography #atlantic #atlanticocean #explorenorthamerica #newyorkcity #Manhattan #statenisland #freedomtower #batterypark

March 2013 - 🇺🇸 One of the things that I love about beaches is that they can be beautiful anytime of year. Sometimes, the best beach time to explore a beach is actually on a cool, crisp day. During these high pressure days the low temperatures are associated with lower moisture, which produces a brilliant blue sky . On this day in March, I found myself on an expedition to Cupsogue Beach County Park in Westhampton Dunes at the western end of Dune Road. This stretch of beach is located along the Moriches Inlet and is a popular place for seal watching on Long Island. If you’re lucky, you can see seals hanging out in the water or along the beach as they bask in the Sun. Seals can be found at any time of year in Long Island’s waters (I’ve seen them in August!) but the best time to see the seals is in March. Hmm…I think it’s time I go back to see the seals this year! #cupsoguebeach #cupsogue #explorelongisland #explorenewyork #explorenewyorkstate #beachphotos #beaches #beach #beachphotography #landscape #landscapephotography #nature #naturephotography #earth #earthpix #earthpic #earthphotography #longislandphotography #longislandbeaches #travel #travelphotography #amaturephotography #explorenorthamerica #morichesinlet #morichesbay #atlanticocean

May 2017 - 🇺🇸 This photo was taken after a rainy day in the Hamptons. The sky was finally starting to clear up as I made my way down to the Atlantic Ocean to capture a 9 PM sunset. There are many different locations that I have taken sunsets photos and each are unique; but this spot is always a favorite because I grew up on these beaches. #naturephotography #sunset #hamptons #nature #landscapephotography #explorelongisland #explorenewyork #explorenorthamerica #photography #beach #earth #earthpix #beachphotography #beachsunset #travel #travelphotography #earthpix #sunsetpics #speechlessplaces #travelinspiration

May 2014 - 🇺🇸 There are many awesome places to visit in New York State. One of them in Letchworth State Park which is located about an hour southwest of Rochester. It offers majestic views of many erosional and depositional features. On this day I also was able to see a rainbow produced by the combination of sunlight and mist from the raging waterfall 🌈 #letchworthstatepark #rainbow #newyorkstate #explorenewyorkstate #explorenorthamerica #travel #travelphotography #nature #naturephotography #rainbowpic #earthpix #trippics #speechlessplaces #travelinspiration

May 2016 - 🇺🇸 Colorado is one of my favorite places to visit because of both the amazing landscapes and my friends that live there. On my second trip to Vail, I arrived at night and drove the roughly 2 hr drive from the Denver airport in complete darkness. I was traveling with a friend who had never been to Colorado before. When we got off the place in Denver the topography was relatively flat because it is a plateau. Then as you drive west into the Rockies you are surrounded by snow topped mountains. #earthpix #naturephotography #travelphotography #rockymountains #travel #colorado #explorecolorado #explorenorthamerica #nature #mountains #earth #earthpics #awesome_earthpix #speechlessplaces #travelinspiration

Crater Lake is the deepest lake in North America at 1943 feet. A volcanic erruption ~7700 years ago triggered the collapse of Mt. Mazama, and left a large crater behind. Over the years of snowfall, Crater Lake was formed, with Wizard Island jutting out from its waters. This was taken just a few weeks ago, and I was certainly not expecting a fresh dusting of snow in June!! . . . #craterlake #craterlakenationalpark #OR #oregon #snow #wizardisland #ecotourism #nationalpark #island #landscape #landscapephotography #nature #crater #exploreoregon #naturephotography #d7200 #overcast #nikon #nikonusa #lake #nikond7200 #nikonphotography #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #nationalparks #summersnow #deepestlake #bluewater #alpinelake #explorenorthamerica #srnnaturephotography

Florida manatees are truly gentle giants. On the Crystal River, they greet you in the clear water. They sniff you, nibble your hair, and hug you. The babies are the most curious, but if they get too far from mom, she chirps to call her baby back. These giants can weigh upwards of a ton, and their closest relative is the elephant. They have three toe nails on each of their flippers, which shows their closeness to the land giants. Their ability to “see” is tied more closely to the small hairs on their bodies rather than their eyes. Small movements in the current and electrical signls from other critters in the water pint a picture of what’s what. And for food? They subsist on solely algae and grass. Swimming with them in Florida was one of the coolest things I’ve ever had the privilege to do!! . . . #FL #florida #floridawildlife #manatee #crystalriver #crystalriverflorida #nikon #floridamanatee #gentlegiant #river #mammalsofinstagram #mammal #fauna #charismaticmegafauna #nikonunderwater #wildlife #nature #photography #naturephotography #exploreflorida #wildlifephotography #nikonusa #nikonphotography #ecotourism #westindianmanatee #northamericanwildlife #northamerica #explorenorthamerica #srnnaturephotography
