One of the most beautiful lightning shows I've ever captured wasn't even during monsoon, but in November. Almost every bolt that dropped was so intense and was multiple strikes. It was impressive! #thunder ⚡️tormthursday . . . #ig_arizona #igersphx #abc15 #girlswhobolt #ig_stormclouds #tempestchasers #westbysouthwest #beon12 #storm_scape #stormhour #lightningmafia #capturearizona #conquerarizona #azfamily #azwx #divine_deserts #fox10phoenix #bestofthegrandcanyonstate #see_arizona #igsouthwest #your_skies #sky_captures #weownthenight_az

These two little guys were among my favorite elk to observe this spring as they playfully meandered through the woods, carefully choosing where they were going to leap across the water.⠀ ⠀ #elk #wildlifeaddicts #wildlife_perfection #wildlifephoto #hey_ihadtosnapthat ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ipulledoverforthis ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wildandco ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #westbysouthwest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #national_park_photography ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #estespark ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #visitestespark ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rmnp ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #visitcolorado ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rockymountains ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rockymountainnationalpark ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coloradogram ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coloradolife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mountainlife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #viewsfromcolorado ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #viewcolorado ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coloradocameraclub ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bns_nature ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #npfans ⠀⠀⠀ #wildernessnation ⠀⠀ #splendid_earth ⠀⠀ #worldprime ⠀⠀ #coloradotography ⠀⠀ #findyourpark ⠀⠀ #natureperfection ⠀⠀ #awesomeglobe

It’s #thunder ⚡️tormthursday everyone! ⁣ ⁣ Here’s one I just discovered hiding in @captureonepro ...I used @captureonepro for the basic edit then @Photoshop to finish. ⁣ ⁣ This is 15 second exposure at f4. It was taken near the White Tanks and that’s Estrella Mountain in the frame. That’s probably 15 miles away. ⁣ ⁣ Use the hashtag above and I’ll put you I’m my story...if you want.

Ok, so che proprio ieri ho detto che non pubblicherò solo tramonti, ma dopo i post impegnati dei giorni scorsi un po’ di bellezza desertica ce la siamo guadagnata!🌵☺️ Stasera, mentre camminavamo in pieno deserto alla ricerca di un antico cimitero dismesso, ci siamo imbattuti in un tramonto di fuoco. Giusto poco fa stavo iniziando a scrivere qualche appunto sulla giornata appena trascorsa e ripensando alla scena che abbiamo vissuto solo un termine mi è sembrato adeguato: tempesta di luce. Si, perché il sole era talmente forte da accecarci completamente. Stavamo brancolando nelle tenebre di una notte troppo luminosa. Dovevamo chiamarci per capire dov’era l’altro, camminare con gli occhi bassi per riuscire a scorgere l’orizzonte, proprio come si fa nel bel mezzo di una bufera di neve. Poi, all’improvviso tutto è finito. Il sole è calato e il solito velo purpureo ha ricoperto ogni cosa. Un velluto lilla ha rivestito il terreno, i cactus, i binari. Eccoci tornati a vedere, la tempesta era passata. Veloce e potente, ha dato spettacolo per poi sparire maestosa dietro il profilo ormai scuro delle montagne. Una bufera che chiamiamo tramonto, e che non sempre siamo preparati ad affrontare. . . . #sunsetlovers #sunsetphotography #instanewmexico #newmexicotrue #westbysouthwest #roswell #americandesert #deserto #mexicoborder #usa #usaontheroad #americansunset #ontheroadagain #tramonto #wildwest #farwest #skyporn #picoftheday #travelgram #travelphotography #acme #

Abe Lincoln had nothing on this cutie’s sideburns. I fully admit, before taking an active interest in the wild burros of the Southwest, I had no idea how different they could all look.

When I posted that very candid photo of myself in my IG stories yesterday I really didn’t expect all the positive comments and encouragement! I appreciate everyone who reached out to me and hopefully I’ll get in front of the camera a bit more this year. Thank you everyone and happy waterfall Wednesday!

A weekend on the AZT with plans to complete another section didn’t really work out after starting in the wrong direction (go north, not south next time!) for the first few miles, heading back and hiking the correct direction for a few more miles, but only to realize we started at the wrong trailhead 🤷🏻‍♂️ so called it a day and will come back another weekend 😆

Who enjoys waking up early on a cold day in January? I know it’s not high on my list of things to do. Yet I found myself doing just that. An inversion had settled in and was creating some crazy weather events. So I grabbed my camera that I’d been neglecting and off I went to capture the sunrise. What I found was a view of the San Rafael Swell I’d never before witnessed. The Swell was covered by an ocean of fog with Window Blind Peak rising majestically from it. Despite being almost a hundred miles away as the crow flies, the Henry Mountains stood over the landscape as if they themselves were in the heart of The Swell. For all of you who hit the snooze button, here’s what you missed out on. ====================================== 📷Canon 6D Mark II, EF 70-3000mm f4-5.6L IS USM ⚙️260mm, 1/15 sec, f/14, ISO 100 🧭UTM 12S 531*** 4336*** — Prints & licensing available.

Reflections . 🧜‍♀️🧜‍♂️🧜‍♀️🧜‍♂️🧜‍♀️🧜‍♂️ . So I didn't have a waterfall for today but I do have water. Lots of it!! Early in the day you get still water reflections. There was a bit of snow left and it was late July. It truly is an interesting place with such a large body of water. .

I sent this marmot a bill for his head shot, but he never paid up. Turns out wildlife don’t tend to pay for their portraits. Then again, I’d rather photograph an animal over a person any day. • • • • #marmot #yellowbelliedmarmot #wildlifewednesday #beartoothhighway #yellowstonepledge #wyomingwildlife #wildlifefeaturez #splendid_animals #herwanderfullife #radparks #findyourpark #ourwild #discover_wyoming #thatswy #wyhomeing #wildwyoming #teamcanon #mycanonstory #nationalparklife #wildlifephotography #westbysouthwest

Have I got a story for you! I was out in Round Valley with my camera. I hiked out La Dee Duh and then cut down the hill to the unnamed trail below. About halfway down I jumped a 3-pt. After a few hops he stopped and turned to look at me, then continued down the hill. I kept heading down and about three minutes later came upon a deer with its head buried in a snow bank, on its side, with legs flailing, trying to get loose. One antler was protruding from the snow which made it look like his head was at an awkward angle. Now I know that deer can get aggressive, especially when threatened, but I felt I had to try and help. So I jumped down and grabbed his hind legs and tried to pull him out, but I couldn't. About that time it seemed, he stopped fighting. Since I couldn't pull him out with his legs, I thought I needed to go around and pull his head out of the snow. Maybe he was suffocating. I was a bit nervous but I had to do something. I grabbed an antler and pulled his head out of the snow. He didn't react. So I shook his head, opened his mouth, and when that elicited nothing I started pushing his chest, shaking him and yelled at him to wake up. After a few minutes, I realized it was futile. He was dead. Life is precious. And I was sad, especially since I played some role in his death. What happened? I'm not sure. I imagine that somehow he tripped and landed awkwardly in a deep snow bank and either broke his neck or landed at an angle that made it difficult to extricate himself. This is the cycle of life, I guess. His remains will sustain perhaps multiple animals thru a harsh winter. But I'm struck at the immediacy of it. One minute he was bedded down, chewing his cud, and five minutes later he was dead. _________________ #nature #wildlifeplanet #featured_wildlife #discoverearth #amazingearth #natgeowild #wildlife_captures #animalplanet #yourshotadventure #westbysouthwest #discovery #lr_wild #nature_shooters #discoverearth #destination_wild #animalsonland #wildlifeaddict #visitparkcity #werutah #beutahful #awesomeearth #utahillustrated #yourshot #yourshotadventure #all_animals_addiction #ourplanetdaily #thebest_capture #bestnatureshots #mycanonstory

✨SAN FRANCISCO DE ASIS✨ • In a perfect snowstorm. • The day I made this photograph (and several of the others I’ve recently posted of this wonderful church), a snowstorm unexpectedly rolled through Taos... coming further east and north than it was supposed to. • So of course, I hadn’t anticipated making any of these photographs on this particular day - but of course, they were images I’d always wanted to make. • Sometimes, things work out in ways you didn’t expect. • San Francisco de Asis, Ranchos de #Taos , #NewMexico. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. #igersabq #photographyislife #iamnewmexico #simplysantafe #heralds #taosnewmexico #westbysouthwest #snowday #taos #stfrancisofassisi #findbeauty #nmcielos #nmnomad #igersnm #newmexicotrue #santafeart #bealpha #travelnm #catholicchurch #igerstaos #potd #artistsoninstagram #snowy #catholiccreatives #church_masters #churchesofinstagram #snowglobe #excellent_america

The Hoodoos Trail is a cool, dog-friendly 🐕 spot along the Rio Grande in @bigbendranchsp. The trailhead is right off Highway 170 about halfway between Lajitas and Presidio. - "The word hoodoo originated in Africa and referred to rock structures with strange animal shapes and embodied evil spirits. Hoodoos are also referred to as “fairy towers” because of their fanciful shapes." - "A typical hoodoo exhibits a prominent capstone of hardened material with a column of softer, more erodible material such as mudstone or tuff. The irregularly- shaped column is formed from millions of years of erosion by rain and wind." - - - - - - - - - - #BigBendGlamping #BigBendNationalPark #BigBendNPS #BigBend #HikeBigBend #BigBendRanchStatePark #HoodoosTrail #Terlingua #Glamping #Camping #Travel #TexasHighways #InstagramTexas #IGTexas #WestBySouthwest #TravelTex #VisitBigBend #FarWestTexas #TexasMonthly #BackpackerMag #TMWanders #TrueTexas #TexasToDo #WhatIsUpTexas

Last night at my local lake. First time I have had the camera out this year. I was on my way home and there was this crazy golden light pretty early across the foothills. So I got home, grabbed the camera and ran back out. The color of the sun setting along with the variation in ice was really pretty. Glad I found a small bit of motivation 🙂

Dancing with the earth, the ocean exploded with the finesse, beauty, lines and curves of a Prima Ballerina moving through the air during a sold out finale of a Broadway show. It was a visual feast and auditory celebration as monster swells crashed against the rugged Pacific Shoreline, giving waves a physical appearance like I've never seen before. Mother Nature and its power and beauty were on full display during this January King Tide along the Pacific Ocean. Have you ever experienced a King Tide? This was my first. And it was EPIC. It was by accident that I was even there. But, sometimes life just works out that way. I planned my trip many months ago and scheduled to drive into the mountains. But, a big storm and heavy snow stopped me from going, but in return, gave us an Ocean that was ready to showcase its strength and beauty. So, I changed my plans and drove a few hours West to the coast. The driftwood shoreline was packed with tripods trying to get a peek at the beauty, as I was rubbing elbows and lenses with IG legends like @nickpagephotography , @heatonthomas and @adamgibbsphoto and probably many more that I was unaware were even there. And we were all geeking out when this monster swell moved in and danced upon the scene. The sunlight had just popped through the thick dark clouds a few minutes earlier, which turned this magical wave into a glorious finale of grace, beauty and strength.

Inspired. I’m really looking forward to my trip next month to San Diego for my nieces wedding. We’re only there a couple days but think we’ll head over to JTree for some cool trees, crazy rocks and dark skies. This image was absolutely inspired by but by no means matches the beautiful images of @alishokriphotography and his book The Passion of Trees. Ali has a mesmerizing way of capturing long shadows of trees in stunning black and white.

Peaceful skies and tranquil hearts Seasons change and fall departs The flowers of the summer fade Time moves on as we never stayed The mountains rise with the setting sun For shadows stretch to meet the one Who knows the climb begins at dawn To wake the soul and sing the song Of conquering minds and tired sweat To sing with praise what God has set Before our eyes and in us laid Yearnings to ascend the grade. #EscalanteRidge #ImportedFromWisdom . . . #nationalpark #poem #weliveelevated #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #npfans #createyourtrail #getoutside #hiking #utah #landscape #explore #flower #werutah #utahgram #theoutbound #wowutah #rei1440project #wanderlust #adventure #travelgram #beachlife #nature #gooutside #earthpix #findyourpark #mygregorypack #mountains @bestofthetetons @earthpix

Since the Earth never stops moving, adventure never ends. This fault line in Box Canyon is the weak point that became the source of the cave I was standing in, and can be seen directly across the canyon. When water carves a canyon, it follows the path of least resistance, which is often along existing fault lines. Just as water shapes weakened landscapes through its strength, we are shaped when we use our strength to work on our own weaknesses. It is the combination of the two that produces growth. #ImportedFromWisdom #EscalanteRidge . . . . #MindfulWandering #SpiritoftheWest #utah #werutah #goatworthy #utahunique #utahillustrated #utahisrad #geology #alltrails #npfans #igutah #hiker #wowutah #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #getoutdoors #explore #adventurelife #divine_deserts #travelguide #slotcanyon #packforlife #urbexphotography #optoutside #earthpix

Journal! Do you keep a journal? Writing in a journal on a regular basis helps with planning, ideation, personal development, mental health, and numerous other things. Albert Einstein's journal shows the development of his theories over time and how he learned to challenge his own assumptions and barriers, and those of his fellow scientists. Whether your journal is kept in stone or online, it documents your own story and becomes part of history. There is no right or wrong way; the trick is that you do it. But don't deface historic sites in the process. #EscalanteRidge #MindfulWandering #ImportedFromWisdom . . . . #SpiritoftheWest #utah #wildernessculture #weRutah #hike #wowutah #utahunique #utahisrad #divine_deserts #outwest #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #igutah #utahillustrated #wanderfolk #explorer #getoutdoors #sharetheexperience #wanderer #travelholic #lostworld #abandonedplaces #xputah #sharegoodness #urbexworld #getoutside #desert

Amazing things happen where the ocean meets land. Here at Stornetta Public Lands, rapid uplift of softer Miocene period Gualala formation sediments combined with wave erosion, leads to sea caves, collapsed formations, and humorous names like Toilet Bowl Hole. . . . . #EscalanteRidge #MindfulWandering #SouloftheWild #geography #geology #earthscience #campmanapproved #gooutside #alltrails #CA #westbysouthwest #Goatworthy #mypubliclands #hiker #npfans #adventurer #norcal #coast #cali #igsouthwest #stornettapubliclands #explorer #rawcalifornia #beachlife #outwest #leftcoast #wanderer #bpmag #travelers
