Photo by @kristarossow. // Part of the reason I just recently returned to Myanmar was because on my first visit I was unable to make it to the ancient city of Bagan. I splurged on a sunrise hot air balloon ride which took me over crumbling remains of thousands of pagodas and temples on the 26-square mile Bagan plain bordered by the Irrawaddy River. An army of balloons took off from Old Bagan in the north and lazily drifted south as the sun rose through a hazy sky. My balloon made it furthest south, passing New Bagan and the Sitana Gyi Paya Pagoda (pictured) before touching down just past a massive area zoned for new hotel development. This amazing site is changing quickly with the influx of tourism and without proper protection will deteriorate even quicker. This week I read in the news that an announcement was made to ban all climbing on sites in Bagan starting March 1st. Backlash has followed from the tourism industry and the Myanmar Ministry of Culture has now backpedaled to allow sunset viewing on five major temples. Clearly this debate isn’t over, but it is a change that may be necessary in order to preserve this magical site for the future.

#GoPro Featured Photographer + Athlete @harleyingleby About the shot - My daily ritual is to wake up before the sun, make a coffee and drive down to check my local. I'm lucky enough to live on the beautiful Coffs Coast and quite often if you’re down the beach early enough, before the walkers hit the beach with their dogs, there are Kangaroos on the beach and sometimes in the water. How the shot was captured - When I pulled up to the boat ramp this morning I saw these guy bouncing their way along the shore line from a few hundred meters up the beach. I quickly grabbed my #HERO4Silver which I had on a 3-Way and bolted to the shore to intercept them. I generally have my multi-shot photo setting defaulted to Time Lapse, 0.5sec, ProTune, Auto White Balance, GoPro Colour, ISO400, Low Sharpness. I use this mode and setting for capturing everything from noseride photo on my longboard to short scenic time lapses and selfies. Probably the most handy use for 0.5sec time-lapse is capturing moments like this. Bursts are obviously great but when there's a lot going on and you don't really know when the best moment is going to happen. Just let it roll and pick out the gold later.

The Big Picture photography competition: the best of 2015


Photo by @stephenwilkes: Day To Night, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, Africa Last Spring, I traveled to Africa in search of a new location for my next Day To Night. I wanted to capture the passage of time as it related to the animal kingdom, and Africa’s incredible landscape. I scoured the park with my assistants and our guides, hoping for a vantage point rare to the human eye. As we drove along a long dirt path, I noticed an abundance of greenery in the distance. It was a watering hole— and as Tanzania was in week five of an unprecedented drought, this proved to be rather incredible. As I would learn in the coming days, animals of all kinds would flock to the spot, eager to share this one precious resource peacefully. In order to capture as much as I was able, my assistants and I had to hide behind a crocodile blind for 27 hours, taking in the incredible beauty of the Serengeti. It was the most grueling and rewarding experience of my life. I am immensely proud of the final image, seen here and in the National Geographic article on my series, and the process behind it (link in my bio). Follow me @stephenwilkes to see more behind the scenes images from Day To Night, and my travels. #Africa #Serengeti #StephenWilkes #DayToNight #Tanzania

Photo by @paulnicklen // The sheer power these little guys produce is completely awe-inspiring. Sitting in the water with these amazing animals makes me feel like I'm one of them, which is a truly indescribable feeling. This is one of my favourite picture of myself showing what I truly love most in the world; protecting and experiencing our oceans.

Photo by @stephenwilkes: A small portion of my final Day To Night of Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. I traveled to Africa last spring to capture my most ambitious Day To Night yet, Serengeti National Park and its many species. I coordinated my visit with peak migration, hoping to capture as many animals as possible. Unfortunately, I arrived in the midst of a five week drought. This meant I was chancing months of preparation only to catch a few animals off in the distance, as migration patterns were thrown off by the drought, and now completely unpredictable. After weeks of scouting locations, I discovered a large watering hole. It was incredible luck—elephants, zebras, wildebeest, meerkats, hippos, they all flocked to the water, peacefully gathering to share this one precious resource. About halfway through the shoot, my assistant and I paused to backup our files, unable to photograph anything while we waited. This is always a stressful process because I spend the entire time hoping nothing happens that I might miss. Minutes after we resumed shooting, this family of elephants marched directly through the frame. Moments earlier and we would have missed one of my favorite parts of the image. I am still in awe of our incredible luck, and the beauty I witnessed in those 30 hours of shooting.

A scarlet macaw takes flight from a nearby Beach almond tree. We spent the better part of an hour photographing these beautiful birds last year while exploring Caletas Reserve in #CostaRica. I'm currently enroute to join one of our expedition ships, the National Geographic Sea Lion and can't hardly wait!
