NYC Seascape by Reuben Hernandez

Today was nearly 100 degrees in NYC so we hit the beach. Here's a foggy seascape from our ferry ride over to Rockaway beach. It got quite lively today during the Colombia and England round of 16 World Cup match.

GHOST DANCE 3.14.18

My first aurora image, out of 6,400 total images. I'll never forget this night, and the following several nights after. I looked up towards the sky, and the green, magenta, red, and blue aurora danced above us for several hours. This image is meaningful because it has been on the top of my bucket list to see and photograph the aurora for quite some time. The aurora is one of the most beautiful, surreal, and bizarre things I've ever seen. I'm excited to pitch a big project...

Today also marks 8 years since I worked my last day at a full time job ✌🏽

Here are some of my favorites images that I photographed of Supai and the Havasupai Falls while on assignment for BBC Travel.  Supai is the most remote town in the lower 48 and is only accessible by an 8 mile hike, by mule, or by helicopter and is the only US town that still received its mail by mule. It has been inhabited by the Havaupai for at least 1,000 years. Check out the full story here:

BBC Travel - The tiny village hidden inside the Grand Canyon by Reuben Hernandez

I'm excited to share my first story for BBC Travel, featuring Supai, the most remote town in the lower 48 states. I hiked 40 miles carrying 50 pounds of gear for this story. It is best viewed on desktop rather than mobile. Enjoy!

Storm King Art Center, a picturesque 500 acre outdoor sculpture park, is one of my favorites places to visit and is only a short drive north of NYC. I highly recommend stopping by The Shops at Jones Farm for some goodies either before or after!

Matera, Italy by Reuben Hernandez

Matera is a town built into caves using negative architecture and one of the oldest and continuously inhabited human settlements in the world. It was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its underground cistern and water collection system. The main cistern has a water capacity of five million liters and took over 200 years to dig/carve out of the rock!

Meteora, Greece is one of the most fascinating and spectacular places I have ever visited. It's a four hour drive north of Athens and has an incredibly rich history. Meteora translates as "suspended in the air".

Caves in Meteora were inhabited continuously between 50,000 and 5,000 years ago and the monks settled here in the 11th century. The monasteries were built in the 14th - 16th centuries and the monks found the inaccessible rock pillars an ideal refuge from the expanding Turkish occupation, and the area was also attacked by the Nazis during WWII. 

Today all of the monasteries pictured above are still functioning monasteries. I recommend ditching your car and exploring the region by foot.
