It hurts to say that this very low resolution preview image is all that’s left from possibly the most epic flight of my life while documenting the remote & harsh Island of Onekatan last night. Upon landing, gale force winds blew it off a huge cliff rendering our 3 hour rescue mission worthless. We called it off at midnight while @renan_ozturk @tedhesser & I hung from shallow tree roots with headlamps over 80ft cliffs leading to the volcanic lake below. Despite being only 30ft away from our precious memory cards from the expedition the risk wasn’t worth it. To add insult to injury the small thumbnail file was still visible on my phone so we can all appreciate this truly remote beauty. I’ve never cried from losing and image but last night I was pretty close. Onward & upward the journey continues... . @_ryanhill_ @taylorfreesolo @jtkerby @rishisugla @tomorrow_unlocked #fromkurilswithlove

hannah_gato I guess this means you’ll just have to go back for another photography journey, when the pain of losing the original subsides at least. Que sera sera, whatever will be will be! This is still a wicked cool image with an even cooler/tragic backstory though

mattziniel You got the bad luck out of the way, now bring on the good!

wonderside It happens to the best of us man. What’s important is that you’re safe to shoot another day... I remember losing my memory card in geothermal waters of Iceland. After hours of searching and nearly burning my hands off it’s safe to say emotions were high. For a thumbnail this so still a grand image and I’m sure if will bring back memories for ever ✌🏼

22.den Masterpiece view ❤️

kmangourilos That's simply majestic Chris!

shotsfromabove Oh man that’s a tough one brother! That’s all you can say is onward and upward😁. Thanks for sharing.

saptono_dimas amazing..👍

stephen_mcgee Too add another note to the symphony of poetic responses above, I’m sure That type of light and moment of loss will motivate you in ways the high res image might not have had the power to do. This image magnifies the power of imagination, which often doesn’t come with the perfection within photography. And that’s huge. Keep crushing.

synthisizer We need you all to keep taking more photos for us! Lucky you have the epics in your mind! ☝🏼

_ms_pixels Very nice pic 🔥🔥😍

mfarkas These are the moments that keep us grounded sorry for your loss looks like an epic experience

be.onthego Still a beautiful picture and you were still able to capture the change in the island so well! Wondering which kind of was it that you were using?

shayaac Sounds familiar! It’s a sad moment for an shoot. We lost one on the Beni River. Our boat was right over it. We knew it was only eight feet below our feet, but we couldn’t risk the rescue. 😢 @hayleymstuart

kkgalvan ✨✨✨Makes for a good story but bummed for you! ✨✨✨

This is what most of our leopard seal shoot looked like: carnage. When the newly-fledged penguins were learning to swim they were no match for the much faster and smarter leopard seals. The seals were so well fed that often many of their hunts were for sport - they would kill and not eat their meal. Sometimes the seals would spend up to 30 minutes toying with the penguin before finally deciding to kill it. When they got bored half-drowning the birds, the way they finally kill their food is by grabbing the penguin and whipping it back and forth. This "degloves" the body from the feathers/skin and leaves just the meat for them to eat. It's a pretty dramatic behaviour, but as you can see in the 3rd photo, it's pretty hard to watch the prolonged deaths for several weeks. That's nature folks: animals got to eat and it ain't clean and glossy. I'm quit happy to be off the food chain. . 3rd underwater photo by seal-bait @hughdmiller . . . . .#sevenworldsoneplanet #antarctica #filming #bbcearth #onlocation
