The sunrise yesterday morning was tops! ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ • ~ I yawned. Rolling over, I grabbed my phone to check the time. I squinted as the bright phone screen lit up: only 5:00. I sighed. "To get up, not to get up..?" Sleepily I rubbed my eyes and peered out the window.... Approximately 5 seconds later I was rushing out the door, barefoot, hair flying in every direction, but most importantly, camera in hand. Who would have thought I'd be so excited over a mere sunrise?! But then again, it's been nearly a month since the rising sun played catching colors across the morning sky like this. What luck!! Fourty-five minutes later I returned from my spur-of-the-moment photo shoot. I was muddy from sloshing through ankle deep mud, my foot was already swelling from a nasty Ishcanal splinter, my eyes felt strained because I'd hadn't taken time to put my contacts in earlier, but.... I had a smile on my face! Finally captured some of those sunrise shots I've been longing for the past several weeks! Definitely had been worth it to hop out of bed a bit earlier than usual😉 . . . . . #sunrise #morningsky #SonyAlpha #SonyImages #SonyAlphasClub #SonyPhotoGallery #Sonya6000club #sonyalpha @monadorablenature #sonyalpha6000 @sonyalpha6000 #Yourshotphotographer #lonelyplanet #OurPlanetDaily #TheGlobeWanderer #nationalearth   #earthfocus #earthescope #nature_good #naturel_shots #igworldglobal #master_shotz #ig_myshots #capturelandscapes #earth_pix #ig_worldclub #ynotoutdoors #igphotooftheday #ig_color #naturelovers #natureloversgallery #naturebeauty @travelthroughthelenses

Quiet Fire

I just watched a YouTube video by @heatonthomas talking about the "ugly aspects of landscape photography" and had one of those experiences on the Green River. I felt compelled to add a behind the scenes clip of me gathering footage for an independent film project @nick.reedy and I are working on. I traded 10 mosquito bites at least to capture this image. I'd say the juice was worth the squeeze, what do you think? #utahtravels #greenriver #utah #colorado #unexplored

Daydreaming about this sort of place right about now. 50s-60s, fresh crisp air and overcast, at one of my favorite waterfalls that I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. This image was taken several years ago during a solo trip through central Oregon. I was lucky enough to have this area alone on this evening and the conditions were more than accommodating for waterfall shooting. A light drizzle continued on throughout the evening and the misty, dreary sort of atmosphere added a nice touch to the lush area. And yes, the water really is a lovely, striking blue-aqua color. As I sat there for a good couple of hours taking my surroundings in, I was thankful that I had made the last minute decision to head here away from any crowds. ☁️💧💚 _____________________ • • • • #longexposure_shots #oregonexplored #pnwonderland #pnwisbeautiful #roamtheplanet #natgeotravel #ic_landscapes #landscape_captures #youroregon #beautifulplaces #upperleftusa #wonderful_places #majestic_earth #landscapephotomag #cascadiaexplored #waterfalls #colors_of_day #main_vision
