The continued process of learning to fail gracefully. @renan_ozturk reversing the steps after retreating from the point of snow to the right of his left elbow. Close….oh so close…but this isn’t horseshoes or hand-grenades…this is climbing. Sure, it’s the journey. But the summit matters too. I suppose you are forced to take a harder look in failure. But win, lose, or draw, it’s always worth it. // Insta retrospective for the newly released @natgeo Instagram book. Info at link in profile. #natgeoinspires
Joe Sertich returns from a long day of prospecting and fossil excavation in the Kaiparowits through a sandstone slab filled with hoodoos on assignment for @natgeo profiling Laramidia and the Kaiparowits formation of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Southern Utah. Landscapes like this always move me…they seem to have secrets and answers hidden in them. Maybe because my parents took me there as a child, or maybe because there is some residual ancient wisdom locked in the sandstone, but no other place on the planet has the same draw to me as does the does the American Southwest. It’s a good place to get lost… // Insta retrospective to celebrate the release of the new @natgeo book of your favorite Instagrams. Link in profile. #natgeoinspires
Members of the Hkakabo Razi team use a bamboo bridge to cross the crystal waters that pour down from the Tibetan border. We had been in Myanmar for nearly 50 days at this point and still had around 100 miles of walking still to go. Congrats @larryjalapeno @dave.krugman @storytellers.s @live_free_run_far for winning the @natgeo Instagram book #natgeoinspires photo challenge. Keep sharing what inspires you.
#NatGeoInspires marvel..See that dot getting absloutely pounded by the wind? That's @ladzinski on a crash course in polar exploration in Antarctica. Head down, eardrum pounding, toe inihilating, mind crushing katabatic mayhem. I've never had so much fun getting crushed. Insta retrospective in celebration of the @natgeobook coming out tomorrow. Share your images and stories of marvel using #NatGeoInspires for a chance to be featured in the @natgeomuseum and to join a National Geographic Expedition Weekend Photography Workshop.
