Photos from @nasa | On this day, 50 years ago, we humans landed on the moon on July 20, 1969. It was only in 1903 that the Wright brothers flew a plane at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It is hard to believe that it only took 66 years to go from the first human flight to the first humans landing on the moon. Now, 50 years later #nasa is looking to head back to the moon and onwards to Mars. Space travel is hard. As much as folks would like to think about how romantic it would be to colonize ...
High winds, steep mountains and massive glaciers deep in the Rees Valley beyond Glenorchy, New Zealand. This one just felt better in black and white since there was little color to speak of in the original color file anyway. Part of the Lord of the Rings was filmed back in this valley and it isn’t hard to see why—absolutely stunning. This image is part of a massive panorama captured with the @fujifilm_global GFX 100. #glenorchy#reesvalley @fujifilmusa_ @fujifilm_northamerica

Cecil Peak looming above Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand. I love it when clouds form below the top of a peak. While staying with @mikelangford_qccp and @jackieranken I woke up on this morning and saw the incredible view out the window, then scrambled to get my camera and tripod. The view from their balcony is pretty phenomenal. This image is a six image panorama put together in @lightroom from the @fujifilm_global GFX 100 and is a huge image file. The hospitality in New Zealand was amazing. After speaking at the @nzipp_national photography conference in Wellington, I spent ...

Frost on the trees at Kelland Pond just south of Twizel, New Zealand on the South Island. While driving up to Aoraki Mt. Cook I saw these frozen ghost trees on the side of the road and with more exploration found the pond as well. There were endless cool photo opportunities in this area. The pond was generating its own cloud and the freezing temperatures allowed for the frozen landscape you see here. #twizel#kellandpond @fujifilmx_us @fujifilm_northamerica

#thatwanakatree at 2 AM. While visiting New Zealand recently I tried to stay away from the “tourist” photo spots but it was hard with the Wanaka tree. My hotel was literally a few hundred meters away so I thought let’s go out at 2 AM and do some light painting. And, well, no one is out there at 2 AM in winter freezing their nads off so it wasn’t a bad choice. Long exposure, tripod and a powerful flashlight came together here for an interesting pic. #wanaka @fujifilmusa_ @fujifilm_northamerica

Another image of Mt. Cook (also known as Aoraki) at sunset in the southern alps of New Zealand. From bottom to top the vertical rise of the peak as seen here is a height of over 10,000-feet (3,048-meters) which is in large part why this peak and the surrounding peaks are so impressive. #mtcook#aoraki

Mt. Cook (also known as Aoraki) under the Milky Way, seen here from Kea Point, is the tallest peak in the southern alps of New Zealand. At 3,724 meters (12,218 feet) and with three separate summits it is a serious challenge for any mountaineer. It is also the peak that Sir Edmund Hillary used to train for Everest. I spent two days at Mount Cook with spectacular weather and clear skies. Having traveled far and wide and having visited many of the great mountain ranges of the world I have to say Aoraki is mighty impressive. Getting a Milky Way ...

Mount Aspiring (also named Tititea by the Māori) at sunset rising above Lake Wanaka on the South Island of New Zealand. I must say the southern alps here in New Zealand are absolutely stunning. The flight from Wellington to Queenstown a few days ago on a crystal clear day was one of the most beautiful flights I have ever been on with the entire range laid out below us. While this image doesn’t convey the endless mountain-scape the color of the light at sunset was a wild purple glow. More to come from my adventures here in NZ. #newzealand#mtaspiring ...

Three-storied pagoda at Nachi Falls near Nachi, Japan. While researching things to do near Kyoto and Osaka we stumbled upon Nachi Falls and rented a car to make the trip out. This is a stunning landscape and also afforded us the time to explore some more rural areas of Japan a few weeks ago. It was great to get out of the city and drive in some truly tiny curvy roads through tea fields and small towns. #nachifalls#threestorypagoda @fujifilmglobal @fujifilmx_us @fujifilm_northamerica

Savannah Cummins (@sav.cummins) on Go Sparky Go (5.11) in Indian Creek, Utah—captured with the FUJIFILM GFX 100. I am packing up today for a trip to New Zealand to speak at the @nzipp_national conference and the GFX 100 is coming along. Even though I have used the camera quite a bit already for the above assignment and in a variety of scenarios I am still getting to know it and continue to find new features. Capturing dramatic landscapes in New Zealand after the conference will be seriously fun, especially since this is my first trip to NZ. Stay tuned for ...

@carsonstorch launching off a jump in Virgin, Utah. Carson and Dusty launched off this jump over and over perfecting certain tricks and also running through a variety of maneuvers. All the time I was blasting away at 5 FPS with the FUJIFILM GFX 100 capturing a dozen or more 102 MP images with each jump. This image with him upside down just seems so improbable that it resonates. My sincere thanks to Carson and @dustywygle who both worked tirelessly to help realize these images and to @davegardnercreative for assisting me on this portion of the assignment. My thanks also ...
