One of the things that makes my job enjoyable despite the hours are the opportunities for getting out in the field. Reporting on tropical forests and other environmental issues frequently takes me to some places of amazing natural beauty. Along the way, I take pictures when I can.

Continuing what has become a tradition on Earth Day at mongabay, here are 100 photos I've taken over the past year (since Earth Day 2011). To highlight the positive, I haven't included any pictures deforestation or environmental destruction. Overall I posted more than 10,000 new photos over the past year on mongabay.com.

If you are interested in seeing more pictures, please check out travel.mongabay.com. I expect to add many more images before the next Earth Day.

I hope these pictures provide a reminder of why we celebrate Earth Day.
