Thanks to theses little monkeys Eero and Eli, for allowing me the gift of fatherhood! Of course @jmepat had a big hand in that as well :) love you guys!
The views from the deck on this giant hotel, that isn't open yet... are pretty good. Within 2 years will be a "mega" all season style resort / hot springs / recreation zone. China makes my mind melt in some crazy ways. 36 degrees, and planning for .
A sad day for many, heartbreaking for our friend and snowboard legend Ken, having to announce the end of 28 years of snowboarding camps on Blackcomb glacier. Life changing for many, I cannot think of the words needed to describe or thank the man for creating what he did- and all those involved. Rip @campofchampions and thank you Ken. @dustincraven /COC 2008

As a photographer I always enjoy giving the occasional dental exam to apex predators. This #leopardSeal unabashedly giving my camera a face full of smiling teeth. Admittedly I would have been a lot more scared in a situation like this had my friend @paulnicklen not prepped me before getting in the water that these beautiful animals will curiously open their mouths in front of the reflective dome of your camera, perhaps trying to communicate or simply just being playful. Swimming in the icy waters with these incredible creatures is something I will never forget. It's sad to see first hand how these animals are living in an ever changing environment. Over the last two decades, the Antarctica Peninsula region has warmed significantly, directly contributing to substantial ice loss, leaving with it a lot of unanswered questions to what this means for the abundance of animals that live here. It's directly affecting ocean sea rise globally and the need to make appropriate environmental decisions has never been more critical. I'm sincerely hoping and praying that the administration in my country will make sensible choices and stay IN the Paris agreement.

Happy day in Revy a few years back with @pendygram , Jonaven and Kirt.. and some small cornice walking creature!

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // As the sun sets over the calm waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, a young leopard seal rests on a whimsical piece of ice. Corroded by currents and waves, small icebergs like this one, serve as perches for wildlife, including penguins, seals and seabirds who often use them to rest. Without ice, life in the polar regions would be impossible.

Our exit from Antarctica - another, wetter view. Five of the longest days of my life. But one of the many things upon which @paulnicklen and I agree: Misery makes great copy. We're thinking of lobbying to make it the official @natgeo creed. In the meantime: go see his new gallery opening in NYC. Plenty more amazing images there.
The joy of crossing the Drake Passage from Antarctica to the Falkland Islands. 700 nautical miles of 40 knot winds and some big seas equaled some churned up stomachs. But, rarely do perfectly calm conditions make for good stories and it is all about story-telling. Excited to share stories at the opening of my gallery in New York on April 22nd. 347 West Broadway. Hope to see you there!!! #fineart#naturephotography#hanshansson#thelittleshipthatcould

Words by @craigwelch // Ice in Antarctica never stops being magical. Ninety percent of an iceberg is usually under water, and this frozen freshwater typically melts faster below the surface of the sea than above. Sometimes during this process, as the melting freshwater rises in the ocean it breaks into plumes, like rising thunderheads, mixing in more warm water. That melts channels in the sides of icebergs, creating seams, like ribs, in the underwater portion of the iceberg, says Richard Alley, a Penn State geologist and ice expert. When sunshine and warm air melt ice above the surface, the iceberg slowly rises, exposing these achingly beautiful vertical flutes, which we saw during our journey along the western Antarctic Peninsula.
