Photographer Ralph Lee Hopkins recently returned from an eco-tourism voyage with National Geographic Expeditions. His travels took him from Alaska to Antarctica where he had the opportunity to capture images of many local animals, plants, and landscapes. Hopkins’s photographs are excellent examples of one of the fastest growing subsets of the tourism industry.
