Pete Ryan  National Geographic photographer @natgeofineart @natgeocreative Fellow @the_explorers_club Late arrival to the IG party.

Demolished in 28 minutes, April 2017. Built 1923, the structure was the last piece of a former Saskatchewan town called Thrasher. Photographed in 2012, this image was immortalized in post-demolition news articles claiming that the grain elevator had been made more famous having been photographed by a National Geographic photographer. My mother is proud. @tourismsask @natgeo @natgeotravel @natgeoadventure @natgeocreative @natgeofineart

We live in a world of strange priorities, where Kim #Kardashian buying a Lamborghini creates international headlines, drought and wildfires are the current issues that impact human health. In the midst of this Anthropocene era, one in which nowhere on earth remains untouched by the hands of humans, as climate change contributes to #drought that destroys our agricultural livelihoods, people are forced to move to overcrowded cities where strained resources can foster a violent atmosphere. Realizing that our climate policies not only jeopardize our very existence -- but also aggravate our more immediate economic, social, and political concerns -- who or what is going to step up and become our #salvation #Superhero? @natgeocreative @natgeofineart

Our taxi had dropped us off in the northern Manitoba #wilderness... the dawn light was that phenomenal I knew I had to get this shot - of the rugged, reliable 1940s workhorse - the #classic Noorduyn Norseman. On take-off, the noise of its engine put every #wild critter on notice that Noorduyn was King of the Jungle, larger than life until it became a speck on the distant horizon… at which time we became subjects of instant curiosity. @natgeocreative @natgeofineart @tourismnorth @cangeo

The #wetlook: bear porn at close range. 99.99% of the time I stay out of their way though some frolicking animals tend to gravitate my way as if I'm known #paparazzi. So here we are... 17.5 ft separating camera from unpredictability in steady rain during (grizzly bear) mating season. Meet named #bears "Bo Diddley" weighing in at ~900 pounds and petite "Roxanne." In this #scene, Roxanne has lured Bo our way in vain attempts to inch out from under his grip to run behind us and use our camera position as a shield (#yeahright). Under the watchful eye of an accompanying bear expert @greatbearlodge, there was no bravado on our part, there was no place to go, no choice but to stand put, no camouflage blind nor remotely controlled camera - only #prayers that Bo would not make direct eye contact with me (us). That was 2012. Of storytelling over the years I have made repeated claims that Bo never did make eye contact... until last week I came across the elusive single frame where he did...The look of utter displeasure on his face quickly erased by the scent of another passing sow. #Insane? #BiteMe. @natgeocreative @natgeofineart @natgeowild @natgeoadventure @travelnorthernbc @the_explorers_club

#IntoTheWild. Images that can ultimately define your persona. One of my top five favourite illustrations, this piece depicting the classic Noorduyn Norseman aircraft, by the acclaimed #Canadian aviation artist Robert Bradford. I’ve flown with many bush pilots in remote wilderness areas, mostly in Canada’s far north. @natgeocreative @natgeoadventure @the_explorers_club
