Views of the Winthrop and upper mountain through the hazy smoke last August ⛰ just like the weather that mountain huffed the smoke and keep the upper mountain obscured. Coming back from my 25+ mile day trip on the North Side of Rainier. Hoping the smoke stays away this coming year and we can enjoy the views throughout the long days 🙌 #alwaysforward #liveyouradventure #getstranded #findawildlife

I’ve been listening to a podcast called Creative Pep Talk, by @andyjpizza and it is absolutely stellar. The things that Andy says on there really have spoken to me in many ways and have made me rethink about the way I create photographs. There are many things I could go on about that he’s talked about, but the one I’ve thought a lot about recently is Create art that matters, and being authentic. It can be easy overthinking about the things we make, or feeling like we don’t have our own style. But the most important thing about what we do as creatives is creating something that resonates with yourself, as well as resonating with your audience, and that will inspire them in some way. Even if it is just making them think “that’s a pretty photo” or something bigger such as “that photo made me feel something deep, and has inspired me to get out and explore that place myself.” Whether it’s a big or small feeling that the audience is having, at least you’re making them feel something. Hopefully this makes sense. I’m not the best with putting things into words. If you are any kind of creative, go check out The Creative Pep Talk because it is a game changer and will give you my thoughts like this, that will truly make you care about your art even more than you already do.

Would you like to join @IceManDoug , @SteinRetzlaff , @ErichRoepke , and @ThorRetzlaff in Svalbard, Norway this April 2019? We only have three spots remaining for this year’s Polar Training course 🏔. This course is the perfect next step for those who wish to explore the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Graduates of this course will be well prepared for longer, more complex expeditions, such as traveling to the North and South Poles 🇦🇶. Our one week course will consists of a training expedition, supplemented by some classroom training lead by @IceManDoug. Svalbard is the ideal training ground for polar expeditions. It is located halfway between continental Norway and the North Pole and is the base for most North Pole Expeditions. Svalbard itself is an extreme environment, home to many of the same harsh conditions that people are exposed to on expeditions to the poles. It is ideally located and home to the Svalbard Airport, Longyear (LYR), a 4-hour one-stop flight from Oslo, Norway. For more information about this great opportunity, check out our website.

The seabed around Manshausen Island has now been cleaned for plastic and garbage by a team of divers from White Flag International, led by former freediving champion Kristijan Curavic. • Manshausen received the white flag by the organization, as the first certified plastic free ocean island in Scandinavia. The divers cleaned for six days and removed 300 kg of plastic and garbage from the sea around Manshausen. • Next step, when the snow is gone, is to clean the island on land. � #whiteflaginternational #cleanup #plastic #trash #cleanocean #helsport #icelegacy #icelegacyproject #devoldofnorway #devoldpioneers #ice #travels #exploration #explorer #adventure #roam247

As we were walking the trail at Lady Bird we were constantly stopping to catch the sun coming through pockets of forest ceiling, after every turn we made it just seemed to be getting better and better until this particular moment. The sun was pointing directly at my lens in this photo and if you zoom in you can see the rainbow directly around it. I think this is what they mean when they say, “Right place, Right time”, and this was by far my favorite point of the day.

What if you changed your perspective to see that your day job, (what you do for a living) was actually just a fundraiser for pursuing your interests? Sitting behind a desk was your way to raise capital to start your own business? To follow your dreams? Define what it is you want the do, then start doing it. There is nothing more wasteful than having a life to live, and not living it. #costarica #tlpicks #discoverearth #bestvacations #thenorthface #teamnikon #cabinlife #rainforest #stayandwander #exploretocreate #sheisnotlost #roam247 #waterfall #d850

Kjerag last summer. Golden light, golden waterfall, crazy ambiance. Hiked up there under the clouds and waited for several hours to get the light! Sometimes it worth it!

New year, new goals: I’m going to turn this photography thing into a career. Hoping to get some of my shots (like this one) in galleries. AND I’m creating a website for people to order landscape prints online! I’m pretty stoked to turn this passion into something more, and I’m even more excited about the things I’ll learn on the way. Photographers or artists - do you have any advice on how to change a hobby into a career? Looking for pro tips! . . #hikingphotography #landscapephotography #landscape_kings #landscape_lover #nikonnofilter #nikon #nikonphotographer #nikon_global #nikonphotography #blackandwhitephotography #BW #blackandwhite #blackandwhite_photos #travelphotography #huaraz #peru #travelperu #andes #35mm #35mmphotography #nikon_top #nikon_photo #travel_photography #adventure_culture #adventurephotography #roam247 #mynextadventure

(⬅️swipe for second half of the picture, then again for full size!) . I’ve had a ton of time off recently due to the snowpocalypse here in Seattle which is so great, but the bad thing is that for the majority of that time, I was pretty much stuck in my area due to the awful conditions (although I’m never really that mad about a ton of time spent in pajamas). But I’m excited to get back out as we are headed out for a little wintery overnight this weekend! Have a great weekend everyone, and make smart decisions! All of the new snow in the mountains has made severe avalanches and SIS (snow immersion suffocation... i.e. falling into a tree well) much more of a factor right now.

Our idea of paradise is finding a spot to swim for at least an hour before out running a storm and sinking our boat. It’s been rough, but successful all the same. Here’s a rare glimpse of us actually having fun on a sailing trip haha #ahoywindfuckers #itsnotayacht #catalinaisland

Close encounters. Truth is no matter how hard you swim, the whales ultimately decide and define the proximity of all in water experiences. Accept that and you’re halfway there to getting this close, upfront and personal. Be warned few are prepared for 40 tonnes of whale swimming directly at you. The experience will literally take your breath away and will certainly blow your mind! 📸 @bigbluecollective #bigbluecollective #bewater #escapetheordinary #turksandcaicos ocean magic. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #surroundmewithwater #gnarbox #madeofocean #saltnomads #aquatech #humpbackwhale #bg_underwater #cnntravel #tlpicks #snorkeling #freediving #whales #underwater #uwphoto #uwphotography #roam247 #vitaminsea #fulltimetravel #whale

With changes come opportunities // Cory said, I hate winter it’s too cold, but since I moved up here to the Adirondacks we do some crazy stuff to go through this freezing weather. So when I’m not guiding cross country ski or winter camping you will find me here climbing these beautiful walls of frozen water.

Ahh, that moment in time when a wave passes and you hear the sounds of people laughing and kids playing. Then the reminder that seagulls are also part of the beach experience. Then before the next wave is upon you, the sound of the sand and rocks beneath you getting sucked into the ocean by the current. Then boom, it hits you again. And all is right anytime you have a day at the beach. Happy Friday everyone, as you can see, I am far from a poet, but I do hope you enjoy your weekend and get to the ocean! • • • • #HopeYouEnjoy #LoveFL #pureflorida #bestofthesunshinestate #Florida_greatshots #floridabeaches #raw_florida #raw_skies #floridaexplored #iskyhub #world_bestsky #sky_marvels #onlyinflorida #emeraldcoast #upsideofflorida #hashtagflorida #gulfcoast #roam247 #emeraldwater #wonderfuldestinations #experiencedifferent #earthpix #beachesandnature #alltheoceanblues #shore #ocean #waves #clearwaterbeach #beach

Trying not to get lost on our way to the top of Iliniza Norte. This climb was definitely a struggle, especially after living at sea level for almost a year and then going to 5,126 meters in a few days without thoroughly acclimating. Luckily the psych was high which got us up and down in one piece. 🚀

Sunrise walks in a Van Gogh Painting ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Craving solitude, sunrise walks, nature & sunshine ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s been a week of rain and miserable grey cold. This morning the sun peeled out for a short while. I rushed out, only to be caught in the rain.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I resigned myself to go coffeeshop hoping instead The result: I feel like I can deal with the weather, a failed photo session and I’m a tad over caffeinated ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I’ll leave you with a photo of the Loire Valley instead The place that makes me feel like I’m walking in Van Gogh paintings... and start the weekend half a day early ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy weekend, y’all! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _______________________________________________________ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nomadsdwellings #walkinginavangoghpainting #loirevalley #chasingsunrise #solitude

Part emotional roller coaster, part cultural safari. The pollution and poverty shocked me, and Indian daily life is very different from mine. But you know what else had my jaw on the floor? The birds! As far as I can tell, the urban areas of India aren’t supposed to be prime spots for birding, but from parrots to pigeons to peafowl, there were plenty of avian species to observe and photograph. The crows have a patch of gray on their neck and chest (if you know me, you know I loooooove corvids), and the parrots and pigeons nest just about anywhere they can stand. The peacocks were a hoot as always (I can do a really good call now), and I loved watching the kites soar high in the sky, as if to remind everyone that they’re at the top of this pecking order. ⠀ And this goes without saying, but none of these birds were baited, nor were they photographed in a captive setting. You should never feed wildlife (or post media of this online, as it encourages others to follow suit), and if your subject is photographed at a sanctuary, I believe you have an obligation to disclose that. While this may seem like common sense and good ethics, this platform has proven to me that it will forever be necessary to educate others on these matters. I will be tackling the issue of droning soon, but first I want to address some of the other practices that were brought to my attention in India, namely elephant riding. I have shared a video in my stories that will upset some, but it’s very important to watch — AND SHARE. If you see influencers posting media of elephant riding, please send them the post and politely encourage them to do a little more research on the matter. Please tell your friends, especially if you think they are keen on doing this sort of activity when traveling abroad. And most importantly, please take some time each day to do something for the planet, rather than yourself. Whether it’s donating $5 to a nonprofit, sending an educational video to a friend or picking up a piece of trash, the little things do add up.

#Tbt to hitting a road gap from a couple years ago just outside Whistler. I was pretty nervous about this one after building it the day before and thinking about it all night, but the conditions were good and we got a brief weather window, so I took advantage of it. Thanks to @bradendean and @geoffbrownsnow for the inspiration. Screengrab from @hottiechan ’s vid. #roam247 @roam
