A man sitting on the wall of St. George’s church in Lalibela, Ethiopia. St. George’s churches one of many churches in the town of Lalibela which has been carved completely out of rock. As a result, there are large rock walls surrounding the church from where it had been carved, which is where this man was sitting.

Another stunning European landscape is on the western most part of Europe, Ireland’s Atlantic Coast. Here you can find the famed Cliffs of Moher, and Luke Skywalker’s island of Skellig Michael. This photo was taken on Achill Island in County Mayo. #athomeintheworld #awesome_earthpix #awesome_photographers #awesomeearth #awesomeglobe #TLPicks #discoverglobe #earthfocus #earthpix #exploretocreate #fantastic_earth #huffpostgram #ItsAmazingOutThere #livetravelchannel #lonelyplanet #nakedplanet #natgeotravel #ourplanetdaily #travelawesome #travelingourplanet #wonderful_places #bbctravel

One of the most overlooked regions of Europe, and one of my favorite, is Wales. The Welsh countryside can be stunning and there are plenty of historic and cultural attractions in the region. This photo was taken near the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct Canal which was considered one of the engineering wonders of the 18th century and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. #athomeintheworld #awesome_earthpix #awesome_photographers #awesomeearth #awesomeglobe #TLPicks #discoverglobe #earthfocus #earthpix #exploretocreate #fantastic_earth #huffpostgram #ItsAmazingOutThere #livetravelchannel #lonelyplanet #nakedplanet #natgeotravel #ourplanetdaily #travelawesome #travelingourplanet #wonderful_places #bbctravel

One of the most spectacular natural areas of Europe has to be the Pyrenees Mountains. I’ve been able to explore the Pyrenees in the province of Girona just over the French border. While the mountains are not the highest in the world, they are very dramatic. I took this photo several years ago in the Val de Nuria, which is a ski resort accessible by train. There was a storm on one end of the valley and the sun was out on the other side. Where they met made for some interesting conditions and where I took this photo.

Comment from Gary Arndt:


Most people travel to Europe for cultural attractions, but there are plenty of natural attractions to be seen as well. One of my favorite is Plitvice National Park in Croatia. The green water and waterfalls are one of the signature views of Croatia. I had the pleasure of visiting right after a rare April snowstorm which turned everything white.

Comment from Gary Arndt:


Sometimes, a great wildlife moment just happens. I managed to get this shot of a polar bear with his paw print by shooting almost straight down from our tundra buggy. He approached our vehicle and then took a step back, which allowed me to capture his face and the paw print. I’ve recently published a photo essay of my November polar bear trip with @frontiersnorth on my website. Click on the link up in my bio and you can see 21 high resolution images from my trip. You can view it on a mobile device, but I highly recommend viewing it on a desktop or laptop computer if you can.

Comment from Gary Arndt:


If you go to Antarctica you will see penguins. In fact, you will probably see penguins the first hour you arrive in Antarctica. When I went to Antarctica in 2012, I wasn’t just interested in pointing my camera at penguins, I wanted to capture them doing something. In particular, I wanted to capture one diving off of an iceberg. I kept my eye out, but during our entire time there I really didn’t see anything which fit the bill. On our last day in Antarctica we were in Paradise Bay getting a tour of the area by zodiac we came across a group of penguins that were jumping off a small bit of floating ice. Not only were they jumping off the ice, but they would quickly climb back on to the ice and jump off again! It turned out to be the perfect situation and exactly what I was looking for. We probably had 10-15 minutes of sitting there watching these penguins dive off the ice. The key to wildlife photography is patience. Animals aren’t following your agenda. They will do what they want to do, when they want to do it. Success is often times nothing more than putting yourself in a good position and waiting.

Comment from Gary Arndt:


Continuing on the theme of wildlife I’ve had difficulty photographing, I’ve had a great deal of difficulty getting a decent shot of a bald eagle. Many photographers will tell you that your gear really doesn’t matter as much as people think. There is a great deal of truth in that, but there is one major exception: wildlife photography. In particular, bird photography. Birds are small, fast, and almost always far away. i have a great deal of respect for the people who specialize in bird photography because of how difficult it is. I see bald eagles all over North America, but i’ve always found it difficult to get a good shot. Several years ago when traveling through northern British Columbia I found the perfect spot to photograph bald eagles. The W.A.C. Bennett Dam is a large earthen dam in British Columbia. One of the interesting things is that bald eagles have learned to catch the stunned fish which come through the dam. Now there is a large population of the birds which sit in tree tops right at the bottom of the dam. The trees are on the banks of the river which are at a lower level. The road is at the top of the banks, which is almost at eye-level with the trees. That means you have dozens of bald eagles which are very close by and are almost at eye level with you when you set up at the bottom of the dam. 
With my Sigma 150-500mm lens I was able to set up and in about 20 minutes I able to get a collection of the best bald eagle shots I’ve ever taken. The dam is almost the perfect place to photograph bald eagles.

Comment from Gary Arndt:


Yesterday I spoke of my bad luck, and ultimate success, in photographing whales. I’ve had the same problems, and success, with moose. I had never taken a descent photo of a moose. When I did see them, they were always off in the distance and they weren’t around for very long. Several years ago I was in Northern British Columbia and I took a float plane from the Northern Rockies Lodge on Lake Mucho. We were going to pick up some fishermen who had been out for a week. As we were about to land, we saw a small group of moose on the other side of the lake. Some females with calves. One of the pilots and I decided to get into a canoe and see if we could photograph them on the other side of the lake. When we go to where the moose were, they were gone. The plane landing might have scared them. Dejected, we started to paddle our way back to the camp. As we were going back, however, we came across this huge bull moose who was in the water, feeding on weeds. He would put his head underwater, grab some weeds, and then lift his head up to chew. Every time he lifted his head up, water would rain off his antlers.

We watched him do this for about 15 minutes, trying to inch our canoe closer to get a better shot. Eventually, he had enough and he walked out of the lake and into the woods. It remains to this day the best moose experience I’ve ever had, and I’m not sure it is possible to get a better one.

Comment from Gary Arndt:


I’ve always had bad luck when it comes to photographing whales. During my 2012 trip to Antarctica with @gadventures we didn’t see a single whale during our trip. However, during the last hour we were in Antarctica, just as we were about to pull away from land, we had a humpback whale approach the ship. For over 30 minutes, this whale put on a show right off the side of the ship, even going under the ship from one side to the other. To this day, I have never been that close to a whale before. We were so close that when it blew air out of its blowhole, we could get wet. It was so close to the ship that the ship’s red hull color was reflected in the whale in many of the photos. Since this singular experience, my bad luck with whales has continued and I have never had a whale experience like that again.

The Lake Minnewanka boathouse in Banff National Park looks very lonely in the winter surrounded by the frozen lake. While the boathouse is closed in the winter, anyone can see it from the road, which is right off the TransCanada Highway. Book a rental from @AlamoRentACar in the town of Banff or at the Calgary International Airport and add this site to your Alberta winter trip. #AlamoDriveHappy #MoreMemoriesPerGetaway #ad

Among the wonders of the Canadian Rockies are the frozen bubbles in Lake Abraham. They are created from naturally occurring methane, which rises up from the bottom of the lake and is captured as the water freezes. Travel to Alberta in the winter to see this natural phenomenon  and rent a car from any of the Alberta @AlamoRentACar locations. #AlamoDriveHappy #MoreMemoriesPerGetaway #ad

The Icefield Parkway, which connects Banff and Jasper national parks, is one of the most beautiful drives in North America. In the winter, you can see the Rocky Mountains covered in snow as well as the frozen lakes and rivers of the parks. You can get a car to drive the parkway from @AlamoRentACar locations in Calgary, Banff or Edmonton. #AlamoDriveHappy #MoreMemoriesPerGetaway #ad

Comment from Gary Arndt:


Pond hockey is a Canadian tradition. Perhaps no place is more iconic for a pond hockey game than frozen Lake Louise in Banff National Park. While Banff gets millions of visitors each year, only a few brave the season to see the park in its wintery glory. Lake Louise is only about a 90-minute drive from the Calgary International Airport where you can get rent your car from @AlamoRentACar! This is the first of a series of photos I will be running over the next few days showing some of the highlights of visiting Alberta and the Canadian Rockies in the winter. #AlamoDriveHappy #MoreMemoriesPerGetaway #ad

Comment from Gary Arndt:


Nahanni National Park is one of the greatest parks in the world, yet fewer than 1,000 people visit it each year. Its lack of visitors is due to its remote location in the Northwest Territories, and its lack of road access. Virginia Falls (shown) is one of the largest waterfalls in the world. It is higher than Niagara with a water flow on a par with Victoria Falls in Africa.
