Schooling gray reef sharks (Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos) at Fakarava's south pass (Tomakohua) in French Polynesia. This is likely the best pass in the world to see aggregating reef sharks. We normally dive the south pass on the incoming current. In the strong current, the sharks enter a sort of a dormant state, circling in place in order to pass water over their gills with the minimum effort. On a typical dive, one might see upwards of 650 sharks in 3 big "walls." I've been to the south pass of Fakarava three times now, and it is one of my favorite dive destinations in the world.

On January 1, 2014, I went to Keyhole Rock in Big Sur to take a timelapse of the sun streaming through the famous keyhole on the beach. The low tide and hazy horizon made for a poor shaft of light through the hole, but wispy clouds made for an interesting timelapse, and by the time it was completely dark, the sky was crystal clear.
1389 frames, total. The first exposure was 1/160 sec at f/8, ISO 160 and the last, 20 sec at f/2.8, ISO 3200. Exposure changes were done manually and smoothed out using LRTimelapse.

I went to visit Salvation Mountain on October 25, 2013 and took some aerial footage using a DJI Phantom quadcopter, gimbal and GoPro HERO 3 camera (with a polarizing filter). Salvation Mountain is located near Niland, California, and is Leonard Knight's "tribute to God and his gift to the world with its simple yet powerful message: 'God Is Love.'" (from salvationmountain.us). If you are in the area, I highly recommend a visit.
