NIGHT DRAGONS The Northern Lights came out last night with the massive solar storm. They danced over the fjord in all shapes, sizes, and colors. @canonusa 6D #teamcanon ____________ seanenschimages.com facebook.com

A cold but clear sunset on the Hudson today. #NYC #HudsonRiver

The #northernlights put on a spectacular show last night -- visible as far south as Michigan and Maine caused by an intense geomagnetic storm. Kent Miller captured this great shot of the #auroraborealis dancing over #Denali National Park in #Alaska. #NationalPark Service photo.

Pleased to announce that beginning today I’ve joined @NatGeoCreative for representation in commercial assignments and image licensing. In addition, I’m bringing my entire archive — 14 stories from more than a decade with @NatGeo magazine — over to NatGeo Creative, expanding my collaboration with the Society, sharing more loudly the passions for education, awareness on the issues facing all of us today and into the future. Looking forward to dancing with the talented team lead by Maura Mulvihill and the likes of @alicebrkeating, @ginamartindc and more. Above is a photograph from my 4th story with the magazine, published in the January 2008 edition, titled #VolcanoGods. A story I proposed to the magazine, the approach was rather unorthodox — not how one volcano is interacted with #spiritually, rather how an entire nation located along the #RingofFire interacts with what many Indonesian’s believe are the bellybuttons of the earth. Will never forget the story proposal conference call. It went somewhat like this: Mid-morning in a bar in Iquitos, Peru. On the phone was editor and chief, Chris Johns, then director of photography @dlgriffin, creative director @billmarr, members of the editorial and art departments, maps and more. After explaining the story approach for 10 or so minutes, Chris said, “I like this idea, let’s do it.” Then I thought, great — now I have to prove my theories on a topic never widely studied. Had the privilege to be partner with Senior Photo Editor, @sadiequarrier. Sadie and I worked through the process of creating the final narrative that appeared in the magazine. Often complex, I’ve always feel that each National Geographic story I do is like preparing — then defending — your doctoral thesis. In this case, it nearly was, standing in a room over a year later, presenting the final story that originated with a "let’s do it" back in South America.

Geomagnetic solar storm happening right now !! Last night earth was hit with an extreme solar blow that produced a strong solar storm with a planetary index of Kp-8 !! It was the strongest storm earth has seen in the current 11 year solar cycle. Sky watchers in high latitudes have an excellent chance of seeing the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) once again tonight. This stunning Northern Lights display was at Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon in Iceland. Tag a friend you want to share this amazing experience with... Photo by Mike Theiss @ExtremeNature

What dreams may come What's going on everyone?! @jmsuarez_ back again! While on my trip out west, my friends and I visited Mount Tamalpais State Park and witnessed this breathtaking sunset. Beneath all that fog lies the Pacific Ocean. I was certainly awestruck to say the least. Has anyone ever been here? #TravelBreak

"Tallinn was a fairytale-like winter wonderland - blustery and freezing - and we often found warmth and comfort in Old Town cafes, enjoying a coffee or spiced wine in front of an old stone fireplaces. I could have stayed in those spaces all day, but the city's magical, historical sights always drew us back outdoors."

Here's to hoping your Friday commute is as lovely as this one! Photo by Afar Exchange sales manager @michaelatrimble in El Calafate, Patagonia #traveldeeper

Photograph by @tylermetcalfe // The sun sets on the columns of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC. This area will be swarming with tourists in only a few weeks (as the city's cherry blossom trees begin to bloom) so it was nice to get out and photograph the area during a quiet, peaceful evening on the Tidal Basin.

For the astronomically inclined, 2 solar prominences show up red amd a 3rd seems to be flying off into space. From todays spring equinox total eclipse. #eclipse #totaleclipse #longyearbyen #svalbard #norway #travelquest #solar #sun

“Tourists from all around the world have traveled here to see the eclipse,” @tinemari wrote in an email this morning from #Longyearbyen, in #Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago. She estimated that the town’s population doubled for the event. (Svalbard was one of only two places on land where the total #eclipse was visible.) Tine, who is from northern Norway, took a break from work to watch the eclipse with coworkers. “I have seen a partial eclipse before, but nothing like this,” she said. #solformørkelse #regram

Second contact with promenances. Another awsome sight. #eclipse #totaleclipse #longyearbyen #svalbard #norway #travelquest
