Driving along the north shore of Ehukai Beach, the dramatic orange of the sunset bathes the island and creates a silhouette of this mother and child, making this atmosphere feel different than the typical tropical scenes of Hawaii. #Hawaii #Oahu #Sunset #Atmosphere #Silhouette #Orange @BryceWolkowitz @Taschen @lexarmemory #lexarmemory @owcsolutions

This detail captured in Bella Coola shows a more playful side of the resident Grizzly. While I was photographing for over 36 hours I witnessed the subtle and not so subtle communication of these extraordinary animals. This experience has inspired me to continue to photograph and understand other endangered species, Day To Night. #DayToNight #BellaCoola #GrizzlyBears #Canada #Britishcolumbia #Landscape #Wildlife #Time #Mountains @HoldenLuntzGallery @Taschen @lexarmemory @BryceWolkowitz #lexarmemory @owcsolutions @tweedsmuirparklodge

The newest image of the Day to Night series is finally complete! This scene, scouted near the @Tweedsmuirparklodge in Bella Coola, captures the grizzly bears looking for food in their natural habitat during the salmon run. Due to climate change, the rivers in which the salmon travel are hotter and drier than ever before, leading to an increased number of fish deaths and a lesser number of fish for the bears to feed on. I plan to continue this project capturing other threatened and endangered species, in the hope of creating awareness about the dangers of climate change and the effect of man on natural habitats. Please visit Holden Luntz Gallery, 332 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, Florida, to see this image along with other Day to Night photographs. The exhibition runs from January 4th - January 23rd, 2019. #DayToNight #BellaCoola #GrizzlyBears #Canada #Britishcolumbia #Landscape #Wildlife #Time #Mountains @HoldenLuntzGallery @Taschen @lexarmemory @BryceWolkowitz #lexarmemory @owcsolutions

Photo by @stephenwilkes | A group of 10-20 Hippos, also known as a “bloat,” submerge themselves in a pond in the Serengeti. These animals can hold their breath for up to five minutes at a time, and can even sleep underwater. To see more photos from my travels near and far, follow me @stephenwilkes. #DayToNight #Hippos #submerged #serengeti #nature #StephenWilkes

A group of zebra pause to drink from a pond during a drought in the Serengeti. Because air moves at different speeds over the black and white on a Zebra’s coat, cooling currents are created, allowing them to withstand the high temperatures of the African plains. #Zebras #Drinking #Tanzania #Serengeti #Majestic #Heat @BryceWolkowitz @Taschen @lexarmemory #lexarmemory @owcsolutions

During the great migration, over 1.5 million of these beautiful animals travel cross country every year. #Wildebeest #Aerial #Herd #Greatmigration #Tanzania #Greatmigration #Serengeti @BryceWolkowitz @Taschen @lexarmemory #lexarmemory @owcsolutions
