Oneiric Autumn

Project info<p>The first image from this series, Submerged, is the one that fundamentally oriented my approach to the project as a whole. I was inspired by those misty days during mid-fall, when the lines between sky, land and water begin to blur, when things begin to look clearer and much more …

August 29, 2014 "Meeting the One" I took this photograph some nights ago. It was drizzling while I was taking a walk, and like the sky, I was trying to release my emotions of helplessness. In the news Ferguson was burning. It was then I bumped into who I have to describe as "The One." There planted on top of some garbage bins was a portrait of Marilyn Monroe. She seem to reflect my mood. It was difficult to avoid the emotion that appeared to be stuck in her eyes. Her presence however heralded the changing face of Bedstuy. Which of my new neighbours had abandoned her. I couldn't just pass her. The name under her portrait kept me rooted to her. It was like looking into a mirror. Richard Avedon is really why I started taking portraits the way I do. His ability to make the one picture speak like a photo story is the reason he is "The One," well for me anyway. To someone, keeping his work was no longer of value. Pretty soon someone out there will no longer see my work as one that has value. I stood for hours looking into the eyes that refused to look back. It was no different from the new eyes that now walk around my Bedstuy neighbourhood. And I left her helpless. #oggl_ig #blackportraiture #bedstuyportrait #brooklynportrait #streetportrait #streetphotography #makeportrait #makeportraits #igers #instamood #webstagram #documentary #sonyr100

St. Mary Lake sits within the St. Mary Valley—”the eastern gateway to @GlacierNPS. Prairies, mountains, and forests all converge in the valley to create a diverse and rich habitat for plants and animals. The open meadows surrounded by dense forests can afford some great opportunities for wildlife viewing.” Photo: Kim Keating, @USGS

Longleaf pine forests once covered more than 90 million acres of the southeastern US but intensive logging over the past century has reduced them to less than 3 % of their historic range. One of the most biologically forests on earth, the longleaf that remains provides essential habitat for the Florida Wildlife Corridor and stepping stones for wide ranging species like bears and panthers. This scene shows managed longleaf over an understory of wiregrass and saw palmettos in Ocala National Forest. Restoring longleaf habitat to parts of its historic range is a shared goal by EO Wison, MC Davis, The Nature Conservancy (@nature_org) and numerous partners. By @carltonward

Happy Labor Day everyone! We hope you got a chance to visit America’s public lands this holiday weekend. This photo was taken in Isle Royale National Park. Explore a rugged, isolated island where wolves and moose abound, far from the sights and sounds of civilization. Surrounded by Lake Superior, Isle Royale offers unparalleled solitude and adventures for backpackers, hikers, boaters, kayakers, canoeists and scuba divers. Here, amid stunning scenic beauty, you'll find opportunities for reflection and discovery, and make memories that last a lifetime. Photo Adam Jewell



Our researchers discover new clues to determining the solar cycle. Approximately every 11 years, the sun undergoes a complete personality change from quiet and calm to violently active. The height of the sun’s activity, known as solar maximum, is a time of numerous sunspots, punctuated with profound eruptions that send radiation and solar particles out into the far reaches of space. However, the timing of the solar cycle is far from precise. Since humans began regularly recording sunspots in the 17th century, the time between successive solar maxima has been as short as nine years, but as long as 14, making it hard to determine its cause. Now, researchers have discovered a new marker to track the course of the solar cycle—brightpoints, little bright spots in the solar atmosphere that allow us to observe the constant roiling of material inside the sun. These markers provide a new way to watch the way the magnetic fields evolve and move through our closest star. They also show that a substantial adjustment to established theories about what drives this mysterious cycle may be needed. Image Credit

Longleaf pines cast long shadows in morning fog hanging low over the Everglades Headwaters near Orlando. Rainfall here rehydrates the Floridan Aquifer and also flows south through the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes toward Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades. The rare longleaf pine forests provide essential habitat for the Florida Wildlife Corridor (@fl_wildcorridor). Photo by @carltonward. Stay tuned as this Instagram tour continues traveling north through the heart of the Peninsular Florida.

It's been a pleasure sharing my photography this week with @smithsonianmagazine. Please continue to follow me at @carltonward. We have another 1000-mile @fl_wildcorridor Expedition launching this October to connect the Everglades Headwaters near Orlando to the northern Gulf coast near Alabama. Please check it out. This photo is a favorite from the 2012 Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition from Everglades to Okefenokee. A ogeechee tupelo tree spreads its spring branches over the Suwannee River near the Florida-Georgia line. The orange color in the foreground is the product of shallow white sand shining through dark brown water flowing out of the Okefenokee Swamp. Thanks to you for following along to editors @jeffcampagna and @mollyarob for sharing this story.

Photo by @amivitale. End of summer fishing in #Romania on the Danube Delta near the Black Sea. This is from my travels with Danube Revisited: The Inge Morath Truck Project. We are 9 photographers who won the Magnum Foundation’s Inge Morath Grant and have now finished a dream of Inge's to follow the Danube River from start to finish. The final exhibit will be touring in 2015. #danuberevisited #ingemorath #documentary #reportage @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #Nikonusa #d4s #Nikon #nikonambassador #photojournalism #nofilter #amivitale @danuberevisited #reflection #summer #fishing

Our New Probe Will Study Earth's Forests in 3-D: A laser-based instrument being developed for the International Space Station will provide a unique 3-D view of Earth's forests, helping to fill in missing information about their role in the carbon cycle. Called the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation lidar, the instrument will be the first to systematically probe the depths of the forests from space. It will reveal the 3-D architecture of forests, as depicted in this artist's concept. The unprecedented detail of these measurements will provide crucial information about the impact that trees have on the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. Image Credit

Dramatic skies over the McLaws Line portion of the Chancellorsville Battlefield earlier this week mirror the crisis faced by Union officers here on May 2, 1863. While best known for attracting attention through skirmishing--allowing Jackson's Flank Attack to succeed--Confederates here launched an all-out assault once Jackson's attack hit, striking the Federal position from the south while Jackson hit from the west. Col. Cross held his line amid the chaos of routed Union soldiers and an attack on both fronts. Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania--this is America's battleground, where the Civil War roared to its bloody climax. No place more vividly reflects the War's tragic cost in all its forms. A town bombarded and looted. Farms large and small ruined. Refugees by the thousands forced into the countryside. More than 85,000 men wounded; 15,000 killed--most in graves unknown. Photo courtesy of Buddy Secor (Ninja Pix)

The series of summer Supermoons closed in style Monday night as the full moon hit its closest point in earth's orbit — exhibiting a larger and brighter than usual natural phenomenon.
