Fashion Trends: What's In For Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter

Fashion Trends

Day 186. Dark pulls its curtain down on a quiet and reflective Earth. #GoodNight from @ISS! #YearInSpace #Earth #night #space #pod #ISS #spacestation #reflection

Photograph by @paulnicklen while on assignment for @natgeo. The ocean surface flexes and bends and molds around the silky smooth skin of an orca (killer whale) as it surfaces for a breath. This thin molecular curtain that we call the surface separates us from what we think we know and a dark reality. We stand on a sandy beach looking out over the ocean assuming that all is well in the sea. But when we lower our masks below that #thinblueline we realize a very different story. 90 percent of the big fish are gone, 50 percent of the coral reefs have disappeared, sea ice is at its lowest extent in recorded history and ecosystems have started collapsing from the stress of human induced global warming. The longer we wait the more we will lose. I am proud to be part of a team at National Geographic who are the best story tellers in the world and their commitment to making a difference. As my good friend and colleague @brianskerry says “we still have ten percent of the big fish and we still have 50 percent of the coral reefs. An ocean hero like @daviddoubilet has been bringing the sea to world for over 50 years. #Follow me on @paulnicklen to learn a lot more about a very challenging story that we are just beginning. Also, please #follow @oceansinitiative to follow their crucial work on the killer whales and dolphins of the #BC coast.

Photo by @chamiltonjames (Charlie Hamilton James) A pine grosbeak pics berries in the winter snow in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The grosbeaks would regularly visit the tree outside my front door along with moose, mule deer and grouse; even though the house was located right in the middle of the town of Jackson. Next year National Geographic Magazine starts a series on the world’s national parks. This image was shot as part of a full issue special on Yellowstone National Park and the Greater Yellowstone Eco-system. I will be in Jackson Hole on October the 8th talking about this project at the Shift Festival (shiftjh.org) along with legendary writer David Quammen. Come along to see the work we have been doing for the special issue of the magazine.

Photo by @stevewinterphoto I shot this photo of a hammerhead caught in a net in the waters around Galapagos for #Stern #magazine a long ago. I knew boats were catching sharks for their fins in the area, so I was on the look out for nets strung across the bays where the sharks usually went to feed.I got into the water and saw 3 sharks caught in nets while a school of hammerheads swam by in the distance. We cut the shark out of the net but it was too late. I’m sharing this image - my only try at underwater photography - because my mind has been racing since I saw the movie Racing Extinction - a vital film for our time. 90% of big fish and sharks have disappeared from our oceans, from overfishing and shark finning. 50% of our oxygen comes from oceans and plankton - 50% from forests - where big cats live. Wildlife biologist will tell you - the top predators in any ecosystem are vital for the health of that ecosystem, so if you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything underneath them. There is hope and each one of us can make a difference. If you’re in #NYC you can catch it tonight at the Village East Cinema. #LA, #Columbus, #Portland and #Durham, tonight is the last night so check out http://www.racingextinction.com for the a theatre near you.
