Photo by @donaldmiralle // Tonight a rare celestial event is aligning where the full moon in January known as a “wolf moon”, can be seen with a total lunar eclipse giving a reddish color known as a “blood moon”, along with being slightly closer to Earth referred to as a “supermoon”, all combining for a phenomenon known as a “super blood wolf moon”. This type of eclipse hasn’t happened for two years and won’t happen again for another two years and will be visible from North and South America, Europe and western Africa. Here’s a multiple photo composition of the last blood moon lunar eclipse I shot over North America on April 14-15, 2014, that shows the penumbral, partial and total eclipse phases. #bloodmoon #supermoon #superbloodwolfmoon #fullmoon #moon

Photo by @donaldmiralle // Always exhilarating shooting on the edge of creation at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Kīlauea, one of the most active volcanoes on the planet, was traditionally considered the sacred home of the volcano goddess Pele, and Hawaiians visited the crater to offer gifts to the goddess. More than 2,000 miles from the nearest continental land mass, the Hawaiian Archipelago is the most isolated group of islands on Earth. Shot with local bruddah @bruceomori 🤙🏽🌋 #hawaii #bigisland #bigislandhawaii #nature #creation #earth #volcano #pele #fire

Photo @coreyrichproductions | I’ve always said that the best photography—and the best stories— don't happen when the conditions are sunny and comfortable. Fortunately, two of my good female angler friends (@jessb_bright @amymactrout) agree. There was something special about being out here in the middle of January: the three of us, with over 40 years of friendship together, plus Tia the dog—and no one else around for miles. It’s conditions like these that inspire me to shoot pictures, but really it’s the stories and friendships that are created that make it all worthwhile.

Photo by @MartinEdstrom. Yurts, caravans and Russian Lada cars spot the arid landscape of the Tien Shan mountain range of Kyrgyzstan. We live in this camp while looking for caves in the area - a place so remote it hasn't been surveyed since the Soviet era.

Photo by @donaldmiralle // There I was, sitting on the bottom of Kailua Bay trying to preserve the air in my tank and keep my camera dry in it’s housing like I have on the first week of October in the years past. To get the underwater mass swim start photo from the Kona Ironman World Championships, I’ve always had to wake up about 4:30am to set up all my hand held and remote cameras well before entering the water with scuba and underwater camera kit to watch fish go by until the cannon blast starts the swimmers at 7am. But the difference with this year and past years was the fact that large surf a couple days before raceday kicked up sand and mixed up the water making it more cloudy, which didn’t lend to the clearest water with the best visibility for photos. However, these conditions brought larger schools of fish that I hadn’t seen in the past, swimming in the shallows of the bay looking for food... So as I was sitting there at about 6:59 am, 30 feet on the bottom of the bay, trying to line up schools of fish below schools of man, trying to keep my bubbles from my mouth and regulator out of the frame, and trying to get the correct exposure/focus as well, I noticed from the corner of my eye that the battery was blinking. All I could think was “oh no, my camera is going to die before this start, and I’m going to miss it all!” And right as the worrying set in I could hear the muffled cannon fire, the surfboards holding the line of swimmers open, and the mass of humanity began to swim overhead. Click, click, cli… I got about 2.5 frames in the first second of the race before my camera died. All I could do was swim back to land with my head hanging and pray that I got one usable frame out of all the time and preparation that went into that morning. Looking back it’s sometimes better to be lucky than good, and I know that someone was looking out for me that morning after the image ran as the magazine cover for the publication I was shooting for and four months later received 1st place at World Press Photo for Sports Action Single. The Kona Mass Start image is one of those moments you train for in your career, when preparation meets opportunity. #hawaii #tbt

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // Whilst the Matterhorn looms large in the background, two cave explorers hurry to pack all the equipment away on the surface of the Gorner glacier before the cold affects their extremities. The temperature here was close to -10'C. The wet rope had already begun to freeze as ice crystals are shaken off in order to bend the rope enough to stuff it inside the tackle-bag. Cold work exploring moulins and glacier caves at night.
