Hi everyone, @neohumanity here. It has been great sharing some of my favorite images and stories here at @usinterior. I really enjoyed interacting with you all, and a huge thanks to @uninterior for doing incredible work to inspire us all.
This shot was taken at Marble Canyon, which is near #GlenCanyon National Recreation Area in Utah. I loved how #MilkyWay aligned with the road. Night photography has always been my favorite genre. I can't wait to show you some new concepts and techniques of night photography! Thank you all again for joining me. Cheers from @neohumanity. #FindYourPark #usinterior

@neohumanity here again. This shot was taken at #California’s #JoshuaTree National Park during sunset. It’s one of my favorite parks to shoot the last the day’s last light and the Milky Way. I love exploring national parks, and I feel so lucky to have the opportunities to visit all these amazing places. Every trip teaches me invaluable things that I couldn't learn other ways. Feel free to ask me questions about photography, traveling and national parks. Photo @joshuatreenps courtesy of Niaz Uddin (@neohumanity). #usinterior #FindYourPark

Hi everyone Niaz Uddin (@neohumanity) here. I must say, it's an absolute honor to takeover @usinterior today to share some of my #publiclands photos and stories with you.
A little bit about me: I am a computer programmer, UI designer and photographer based out of Los Angeles. Photography keeps adding new colors to my life, and I really love visiting national parks. My favorite things are watching night sky, enjoying the massiveness of nature and taking photos from very high altitude for different perspective. This shot was taken over #GrandTeton #NationalPark in #Wyoming at 15,000 feet above sea level from a plane during blue hour. I liked how the sun was illuminating the apex of Tetons and the wave of clouds were about to cover it. It was really amazing to see the magic of nature from such high altitude!

What a perfect #sunset! At 1,530 feet, Cadillac Mountain at #Acadia #NationalPark in Maine is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard. From this impressive viewpoint, the park slopes down through forests and wetlands to rocky shorelines and dynamic ocean waters. Drawing artists and nature lovers for generations, it’s a great destination for your summer vacation. Photo @acadianps by Ross Blais (www.sharetheexperience.org). #FindYourPark #usinterior

The natural beauty of Petrified Forest National Park in #Arizona is undeniable.The colorful landscape, open skies and unique formations make for excellent hiking and photography. But that beauty is all a bonus on top of the important scientific mission of the park. The #fossil record at the #PetrifiedForest preserves everything from fossil pollen to some of the earliest dinosaurs, and allows for the reconstruction of several ancient environments through time.

While not rare, pine martens can be hard to photograph because they are such fast little animals. Part of the weasel family, martens live in conifer forests, like this one spotted at #Yellowstone #NationalPark in #Wyoming. Martens have short limbs and a long bushy tail and are solitary. Take the #YellowstonePledge to be a good steward of the park and its wildlife: go.nps.gov/YellowstonePledge. Photo @yellowstonenps courtesy of Jacob W.

Are you excited for #WorldTurtleDay? From tiny, cute baby turtles to massive 1,500 pound leatherbacks, these fascinating animals can be found in almost every ecosystem around the world. Carrying their shells, they’re at home wherever they roam. Human intervention has threatened some #turtle species, so please make sure you don’t disturb or distract them, especially nesting sea #turtles.

On May 22, 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt signed a bill into law establishing #CraterLake #NationalPark in #Oregon, and protecting one of the greatest scenic wonders in the United States. Surrounded by tall, rugged cliffs, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the U.S. at 1,943 feet, and it is fed entirely by rain and snow, giving it a stunning blue color.

Running inland from protective fjords, Three Saints Bay in #Kodiak National #WildlifeRefuge in Alaska looks like a calm lake on a still day. The refuge is home to a spectacular variety of landscapes and wildlife. With #mountains, rivers, tundra, forests, wetlands and coastline, it’s like seeing all of #Alaska on a single island.

The sun sets over the Colorado River at Horseshoe Bend in #Arizona. Part of #GlenCanyon National Recreation Area, #HorseshoeBend is a natural wonder that should be on everyone’s bucket list. Every time you visit, you're guaranteed to see something new. The colors of the rocks change throughout the day as the shadows move in and out of the canyons.

Exploring #MountRainier #NationalPark in #Washington in the summer, famous naturalist John Muir called it “a garden filled knee-deep with fresh, lovely flowers of every hue, the most luxuriant and the most extravagantly beautiful of all the alpine gardens I ever beheld in all my mountain-top wanderings.” Photo @mountrainiernps by Rip Rippey (www.sharetheexperience.org). #FindYourPark #usinterior

Case Mountain is home to some some of the largest trees on earth. 🌲🌲 Located about 7.5 miles southeast of the town of Three Rivers, #California, Case Mountain was established to protect the giant #sequoias. Comparable in size to a 26-story building, sequoias not only loom over their mixed conifer forest neighbors, but they also outlive them -- reaching over 3,000 years.
