A woman shoots off fireworks during Christmas Eve festivities on the banks of the Mississippi in Lutcher, Louisiana. Every year on Christmas Eve towns along the Mississippi light bonfires on the levee to light the way for Papa Noel.
#tbt to my trip to @visit.banff. Banff is home to more than 350 elk. this male elk ran next to the car for a brief time before deciding to cross the road. He stopped in the road long enough for me to grab this shot and then moved on his way.
Camping in @yellowstonenps is an unparalleled experience. Waking up to bull elk bugling right outside your tent or having a bison walk through your site during dinner are incredible. But sleeping under skies like these make it truly spectacular.
