Heading for the Front

We were, with the writer and journalist Sebastian Junger, went for the National Geographic Channel, on assignment to meet with Massoud, who had been coordinating a resistance movement against the Taliban, who had taken over most of the country, from his stronghold in the Valley of Panjshir. We had just passed the Kokcha river and were heading in the direction of a position at a post nicknamed Abdallah, which had been taken by the mujaheddin only two days earlier. As the Taliban attempted to retake the post, the rockets were whistling around us. Both horses and men had no other choice than to continue to advance towards an uncertain outcome. In this report, National Geographic Channel has produced “Into the Forbidden Zone”. Text by @racheldeghati

Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp of 185,000 people has been hit hard by drought and desertification. The riverbed has dried up, but the camp provides potable water several times a day. Solutions like these are more vital than ever as climate change heats the planet, and rains are more erratic and scarce in dry regions like East Africa. Many predict that the greatest human migration of the future will be climate refugees.

Bengal tiger tour 2020 – The dates have now just been released for my Bengal tiger tour to India’s Bandhavgarh National Park in January 2020 so if you’d like to join me on this trip-of-a-lifetime then you can contact me on [email protected] Alternatively you can hit the link in my bio and download the PDF from there and there’s also an option to sign up to my mailing list. This image was captured on my first trip to India and was one of my first encounters with these astonishing and beguiling creatures. We were making our way slowly through Chakradara meadow when a movement in the grass caught my eye. As we backed up we could see that, concealed in the grasses at the end of a small stream lay the distinctive outline of an adult male tiger. The moment was spine tingling, the evening light, this magnificent cat sitting, waiting, watching. We waited too. He could have gone anywhere, he had 360⁰ to choose from but he just slowly rose to his feet, then stretched. I’m holding my breath now just writing this, just as I did then. Slowly he began to saunter straight toward us, straight down the barrel of my lens. First I shot in landscape to include some of the habitat, then I had to move to portrait just so that I could get the whole tiger in the frame. Them I started just shooting his head and shoulders, it was all I could fit in but still he came, without malice, without interest, just on the move. At this moment he stopped right next to the vehicle, eye to eye, and just stood there. Our vehicle had no doors, sides, or windscreen but there was no fear, just awe, privilege, joy. I had yearned for this moment my whole life, tigers were everything to me and I never thought that I’d get to see one in the wild yet here I was, almost able to feel its breath. That I was able to experience this moment, I have no words. Please #followme at @andyparkinsonphoto to keep up-to-date @andyparkinsonphoto @thephotosociety

Photo by @TimLaman on safari with @ThomsonSafaris in the Serengeti. Wildebeest crossing the Mara River, Tanzania. For a @NatGeo wildlife photographer, or any fan of wildlife, there are a few spectacles of nature that you hope you get to see in your lifetime. For me, one of those was the great wildebeest migration of the Serengeti, and especially, the crossing the Mara River by the massive herds. On my trip last month, we were in the right place at the right time, and it was unbelievable… see more @TimLaman. When I teach photography, I always talk about how you can add drama to your photos by shooting in mist, fog, rain, snow, or any kind of interesting atmospheric condition. Well, here you have the dust stirred up by the thousands of hooves. I didn’t like it too much on the roads, but I loved it this day. Watching the surge of perhaps 10,000 wildebeest cross the river that morning was one of the most exciting 15min of photography I’ve had in a long time. I’m sharing more from the shoot @TimLaman. #wildebeest, #migration, #Tanzania, #Serengeti, #Safari, #Africa. #TL_WildlifePhotoTips #ThomsonSafaris

Photo by @gerdludwig. ***FLASH SALE ENDS ON SEPTEMBER, 7th AT 11:59 PM PST*** go to @gerdludwig and click the link in my profile to purchase this signed print for $100. “Hansel and Gretel … became totally lost in the great wilderness and could not find their way out of the woods…. Finally, the forest grew more familiar to them.” This image of two children walking down a narrow aisle in the dark German woods during a field trip was the opener in National Geographic Magazine in 1999 in my story about the Grimm Brothers’ Fairy Tales.

In early 1800s brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published a book of tales, largely gathered from storytellers in central Germany. It remains unrivaled to this day, containing such indelible tales as Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, and Cinderella. Echoes of the world-famous tales still resound in my native, rural Germany, from brooding castles to deep, dark forests.

For this flash sale the photograph is printed on a super-archival 8.5x11 inch Legacy Platine cotton fibre paper with an actual image size of 6x9 inch, which is larger than what you usually get in flash sales. It is titled and signed with archival ink on the front border. Large edition prints of this photograph are in private collections and sell for several thousand dollars. So this is a real bargain.

All prints in the US are shipped via USPS priority mail. For deliveries outside of the US, prints will be shipped from Germany, and may take up to two weeks after the flash sale ends to reach destinations outside of Europe.

Red fox cub in forest habitat – I can understand of course that Instagram might not be the best platform for posting ‘small in the frame’ images but this image has been a recent favourite of mine from the last couple of years. Having been privileged to have been able to photograph fox cubs a few times in the past none of the locations lent themselves to this kind of expansive habitat shot. Given the beauty of this forest however it would have made no sense to have zoomed in solely on the fox and on the few occasions that I did so my personal feeling was that the closer I got the less I liked the resulting image. What I loved most about this site, now unfortunately lost to me, is that as the sun set its position on the distant horizon would create a completely transformed backdrop, moving as it does throughout every day of the year. Factor in as well the differing times that the foxes might emerge and therefore the images that I produced, though similar in content were always markedly different. Though the changeable lighting conditions in which I photographed my recent bear images meant that I primarily used aperture priority for these I committed stringently to manual, photographing only when the fox cub passed through a pool of sunlight. This then allowed the shadowed parts of the forest to fall into underexposure, thereby concentrating the viewers’ attention, hopefully (as you zoom in on your smartphones) on the little sunlit fox cub. The dot of blue that you see to the left of the fox is light from the other side of this small forest whereas the branches at top right were left in deliberately as there was just something about them that I liked.

The Mystical Valley

The painter’s heart beats in his brush, the musician’s in his instrument, the poet’s in his pen and mine in my camera. I do not ‘become’ a photographer, I am permanently a photographer. I take my photographs from day to day – chance moments which the eye often captures before the mind. At the entrance to the Panjshir Valley, a bastion of the Afghan resistance, the old way through the valley consisted of a dirt track running along the side of the river. Each of the traveler’s steps kicked up clouds of dust.

Published in “War + Peace” (National Geographic Publishing, 2007), “Reza, entre guerre et paix” (National Geographic Publishing, 2008), “Derrière l’objectif” (Hoëbeke Publishing, 2010) , “Massoud, des Russes aux Talibans, 20 ans de résistance afghane” (Editions 1 publishing, 2001) and “Afghanistan, les âmes rebelles” (Democratic Books Publishing, 2010)

Photos by @MichaelGeorge // One of the Azores Islands in Portugal is Pico, iconic because of the volcano looming in the center. This is where Augusto Silva, the oldest winemaker in the region, lives on his vineyard. If you zoom in on the 1st landscape image, you can see a labyrinth of walls built from lava rock stretching out into the distance. Augusto and his team have gathered more fertile soil (from land further from the sea) and brought it to this small plot of land. The walls protect the grapes from the salt spray that whips in from the Atlantic, only a couple hundred yards away. Augusto is now 80, and has been farming in the region for 50 years. In the second image you can see him sharing some of his bounty with guests. // #azores #pico #azoresislands #picoisland #winemaker #vineyard #farming #grapes #wine #portugal #portuguesewine #azoreswine

Mountain hares boxing – I captured this image last year when for the first time in my 17 year wildlife photographic career I was shooting exclusively on @canonuk cameras and lenses. I simply couldn’t have captured this image on anything else. I was shooting on the Canon 1DX MkII teamed with the ultra-versatile 200-400mm F4 lens as myself and my good mate @kevmorgans moved inconspicuously but purposefully, tracking the movements of these two hares as they ran and boxed and chased. In and out of the tussocky ground they would sprint, disappearing and then suddenly re-appearing some 50 yards away, covering the ground effortlessly and relentlessly. For us two it was much more of a challenge. In these moments the hares are completely consumed by their activity but we still had to be exceptionally careful, all the while our primary objective was not to interfere with this spectacular and explosive natural behaviour. We were both handholding but it was to be simply a case of luck as to who of Kev or I would get the window of opportunity if and when it did appear. In the moments before this explosive leap occurred both hares were tussling in the ground, the male trying not to take no for an answer, the female getting more and more decisive with her rejections! As I struggled to get a clear view, trying to the focussing point on the almost completely obscured bundle of fur the male suddenly levitated. The relentless @canonuk 1DX MkII was on it in a flash, even though the background provided ample distraction and contrast for it to be confused. It was having none of it and then the rocket-ship fired up, four razor sharp images before the hare even hit the ground. Tip for the day – get absolutely the best equipment that you can afford. 18 years of experience helped me get this image but the camera/lens did the rest! #followme at @andyparkinsonphoto @andyparkinsonphoto @thephotosociety @canonuk @kevmorgans

Photo by @scottgoldsmithphoto // Reflecting on John McCain's run for the presidency. Both Democrats and Republicans spoke at John's memorial service Sunday. He crossed the isle more than other senators. He fought against the causes of climate change and worked tirelessly to stop the flow of big corporate money into political campaigns. Campaign finance reform was his signature legislation. When McCain was in a Hanoi prison camp for 5 plus years, he was offered early release by the Vietnamese because his father was an Admiral. McCain refused release because others were not allowed to be released with him. The torture continued for 3 more years. He fought valiantly to stop military torture when he was in the Senate. He tried his best to do the right thing and admitted to his failures often. 1. McCain conceding the 2000 primary, talking with G W Bush from Los Angeles. 2.

As Americans head into the Labor Day holiday weekend, please spare a thought for the estimated 24 million people held in forced labor worldwide. In India, thousands of workers in brick factories are trapped in debt bondage for generations. Brick kiln owners lend money to their workers for an emergency like a medical problem or a funeral, then charge outrageous interest rates so the debt can never be repaid and is passed on to their children. They work in intense weather (it was 104 degrees the day I took this photograph) with the added heat of the furnaces surrounding them. It was really hell on earth. Please find a way to help fight human trafficking.

Kamchatka brown bear standing – Whilst it’s obviously nice to be able to produce slightly unusual or atmospheric bear images, such as the one that I posted yesterday, there is always a place for more straightforward images. As these massive bears fished in the estuary a few of them would occasionally stand to try and get a better view of the tasty fishy morsels beneath the surface of the water. They’d usually do this immediately after a failed hunt and dive and so, in doing this they’d usually be dripping from massive head to pointy toes in water. Though I’d usually fire off a sequence of multiple frames it these moments it was only images such as this, images where the bear is looking directly at me, that I chose from each sequence. There is something about the connection, that moment of eye contact where a creature as spectacular as this is, for even the briefest moment, fixing his eyes on me. Photographically speaking there was little that I could do to improve the backdrop, other than to try and render it as out-of-focus as possible but I do think that his slightly quizzical, curious expression mitigates the frustratingly colour split backdrop. Reminder of course if nothing else that us wildlife photographers are occasionally a whiny bunch, always looking beyond the beauty and focussing our limited attention spans on whatever flaw our critical eye can discover. Must try harder, must be less of a numpty but I am if nothing else exceptionally grateful to have shared this briefest of moments with such an astonishing animal.

The moon sets over a coal burning power facility in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. As the coldest capital city in the world a lot of heat and electricity is needed in the winter and as a result there is heavy pollution here. Besides the coal powered stations ringing Ulaanbaatar, many of the nomadic people set up their Gers or Yurts in the city and burn coal for heat and cooking in their stoves which adds to the problem. @natgeo

Dusk

As the day progresses, the hands become entirely dedicated to doing nothing but picking the red cherries of the coffee shrubs. In spite of the intense heat, every individual has given up all of their energy to fill up every bag of fruit to its maximum. Walking in the distance, along the hills, are large groups of farmers. Tied to this man’s head is a strap supporting at least sixty kilos of coffee cherries on his back. The men and some women walk slowly and steadily back up the slope nothing must disrupt their paths, they are so concentrated on their exertion. The moment they release the burden, which is then weighed, they return down the slopes in search of another bag to fill up with the coffee cherries. The sun begins to set during the last trip of the day, and in turn, the men also settle. The families return to their shacks built by Ariel Palacios and his two sisters, who have inherited not only the plantation but a love for coffee and those who cultivate it.

Picture taken as a part of a reportage in several countries on coffee, on the AAA Sustainable quality program, published in the book “Soul of Coffee” (Michel Lafon Publishing, 2013). #hardwork #worker #work #man #farmer #coffee #coffeeplant #culture #plantation #cultivate #tradition #courage #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى

Kamchatka brown bear chillin’ – Photographically speaking I have a bit of a history of getting slightly obsessed with particular parts of an animal or bird. The gentle sweep of a gannets neck, the regal beauty of a mute swans tail feathers or, as I recently discovered in the Russian Far East, the indescribably compelling paws of a Kamchatka brown bear. Time and again I found myself building images around these incredible adaptations but of course we were significantly helped by our close proximity. This bear, a beautifully and distinctly coloured male would often rest on a rock just near to where we sat, his lower canine having been injured in a fight two years before. It seemed to give him no problem though and we’d regularly see him demolish salmon after unfortunate salmon. Intermittently he would rest however, his enormous paws used as cushions on which to rest his head. Though I had only a 200-400mm lens this was all that I needed, so close was his rock of choice. The reason that I’ve chosen this image however is simply because of those mesmerising, compelling paws, a swipe from which few would recover. Though the front paws are as you can see, adorned with the sort of claw that can multitask, be it digging a den for hibernation, dextrously plucking fruits from a tree, pinning a salmon or tearing the flesh from it unfortunate prey their back feet are just as wondrous. Imagine if you can a massive rubber boot, solid but flexible, the sort of enormous foot that can give you purchase in the most slippery of rivers. These bears then are so fascinating, so multi-dimensional I left Kamchatka not only with thousands of images but also with countless ideas for when I return.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // The last three weeks I have been accompanying a climate research expedition in the Arctic. The aim was to visit the Wegener Halvø peninsula of East Greenland where we had received a tip off that there were caves to be found. Our aim was to expand the vision of the Greenland Caves Project (@greenland_caves), to find these caves, explore them and collect samples for palaeoclimate research. As part of the project we wished to try and reduce our environmental and climate impact; we teamed up with the Top to Top Global Climate expedition and sailed from Iceland to Greenland and back. It was an amazing experience with breathtaking views the whole time (not that I was always able to appreciate them when being sick off the back of the boat). Here is one image from this amazing emotional and physical journey of a giant iceberg in the mouth of Scoresby Sound. I’ll be sharing more images over the next weeks.

Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - Finley on Glen Effock, Invermark, Cairngorm National Park, Scotland - The Highland Pony is a native Scottish pony, and is one of the largest of the mountain and moorland breeds of the British Isles. Its pedigree dates back to the 1880s. It was once a workhorse in the Scottish mainland and islands; they're hardy, tough and rarely require shoeing, don't need rugs, and are generally free from many equine diseases. Over many centuries the breed has adapted to the variable and often severe climatic and environmental conditions of Scotland. The winter coat consists of a layer of strong badger-like hair over a soft dense undercoat, which enables this breed of pony to live out in all types of weather. This coat is shed in the spring to reveal a smooth summer coat. The breed was originally bred to work on the small farms of Scotland, hauling timber and game as well as ploughing. They are still used here in the Cairngorms where their stamina, and ability to carry weight, is necessary when accessing the remote hills and glens of the Cairngorm National Park. Despite increasing popularity, the breed is still categorised as Category 4, "At Risk" by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust - #cairngormnationalpark #wildlife #scotland - follow me @chancellordavid to see more work from this extraordinary precious corner of our planet and @natgeo @everydayextinction
