Wandered into Everest basecamp today. I came here because I've always wanted to climb her, I had to stand here to answer the question I've been asking myself for 36 years....I've found my answer and I will be back to attempt her summit if she allows in 2021. For now basecamp will suffice. Amazing views and perfect weather. Feeling blessed. @activeadventures ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions t#gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory #natgeo #natgeotravel
The light of the morning sun on Everest and Lhotse was good but the amazing view was behind me facing back towards Namche Bazar from Debouche where we spent the night. You can see the Harvest moon and the Khumbu Yulha mountains as the sun melted away the morning cloud cover. Where ever your day finds you be kind and be at peace with your fellow man.  @activeadventures  @natgeotravel•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions t#gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory #natgeo #natgeotravel
Blessed with an amazing morning view of Lhotse and Mt. Everest from Namche Bazar. An amazing trip full of amazing, kind, beautiful people @activeadventures •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions #gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory #natgeo #natgeotravel
The beauty and innocence of youth. This young girl plays carelessly with her younger sister in a courtyard in Kathmandu Nepal. On this day during the Dashain festival, she celebrates with her family in her finest traditional dress. Her beauty, and the happiness in her smile made my day just that much better!••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions #gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory #natgeo #natgeotravel
Leaving the bustling center city behind I find amazing beauty in this peaceful country. Today Nepal blessed me with amazing weather as I witnessed the Hindu Dashain festival. Colorful, kind, welcoming people smiling and giving thanks to life. Beauty surrounded me at every turn and I'm excited to see what life is like here the further I travel from Kathmandu. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions #gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory #natgeo #natgeotravel
The trip so far. Kathmandu is disappointingly like every other exotic place I've been too. Tens of thousands equally split between young kids trying to find themselves and 50 some year old divorced woman spending their alimony Check draped in beads, paisley dresses and dirty undone hair covered in patchouly oil trying to bang out said first half. Just like Bali and Phuket, drawn in the hopes of some grand spiritual awakening that will all of the sudden make their lives what they've always wanted them to be. Here my spirit of adventure and exploration is diminished with bustling streets full of happy ending rub and tug massage parlors and people trying to push everything from
SIM cards to young woman. The streets paved in wanderers, Faces illuminated by the light of the cell phone their eyes never leave, as the true value of a trip can only be measured in Facebook likes. 
I'm left with the conclusion I was born 100 years to late!!!••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions #gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory #natgeo #natgeotravel
The beauty of Thailand is often overlooked on divers "to do" bucket list. The beauty of Thailand's rich, colorful reefs and her diverse marine ecosystem is beyond words. The clarity of her waters and her swift currents makes Thailand diving some of the best in the world. Divers, is Thailand on your "must dive" list? @ocean_magazine @canon_photos ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

From the window of the Alaskan Railroad somewhere between Anchorage and Seeard. One of a million beautiful memories courtesy of Alaska. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions #gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory #natgeo #natgeotravel
Tracey's Arm Fjord just south of Juneau, Alaska boasts some of the nicest scenery in all of southeast Alaska. In my opinion, these cloudy, drizzly days offer better photo opportunities than sunny skies. However, the sun is always a nice addition. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#natgeoyourshot #followme #instagood #gregpiperphotography #wwf #oceanconservancy #earthpics #earthfocus #canon_photos #canon #deltamedallion #bbcearth #thephotosociety #wonderful_places #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #photo.graphers.are.like #natgeoexpeditions #gregpiperart #theplanetphotography #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #discoverearth #wildlifeplanet #theparadisepursuit  #canonusa #mycanonstory
A school of stripes. Chevron Barracuda schooling around me in Tubataha National Marine Park, in the middle of the Sulu Sea, Philippines. Nothing quite compares to being surrounded by a 40 foot deep wall consisting of thousands of these fish known for their large size, fearsome appearance and ferocious behavior•••••••••••••

A Green Turtle enjoys a sunny day swim around the Mala Pier in Lahaina, Maui. Hawaii is home to 5 of the 7 turtle species. The Green Turtle, known in their native language as "Honu," is the most commonly sighted. @ocean_magazine @oceana ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#oceanmagazine #diving_photography #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeoadventure #natgeowild #gregpiperphotography #gregpiperart #deltamedallion #canon_photos #travelgram #followme #instagood #bbcearth #earthfocus #oceanconservancy #earthfocus #thephotosociety #sportdiver #scubadiving #wwf #ourplanetdaily #travelphoto #ocean #discoverearth #canonusa #hawaii
A grizzly taking a break from the action in British Columbia. One of two bears rescued as cubs, found abandoned by their mother, starving and searching for food in populated areas, they were rescued and raised on Grouse Mountain. I am no fan of animals in captivity but these two lives were no doubt saved by this act of kindness.
