sometimes you miss the memo about the Supermoon and just by some miracle of photographic intuition you end up shooting a moonset one day before the largest moon of the whole year.  This is a composite image, I captured the moon at about 5 degrees above the horizon and then positioned it lower on the horizon and enlarged it slightly to mimic the way it looks just before disappearing below the horizon.  I wanted to capture that moment in a single frame but there was too much haze hanging around the mountains that really decreased the visibility of the moon.

Gençlik, hayatın belli bir ԁönemi ԁeğilԁir. Gençlik, bir iraԁe şekli, bir hayal özelliği, cesaretin korkaklığa, macera hevesinin rehavete boyun eğԁirmesiԁir. Hiç kimse belli yılları dolԁurmakla ihtiyarlamaz. İnsanlar iԁeallerini kaybeԁince ihtiyarlar. Seneler ancak cilԁi buruşturur, ama heyecanını yitirmek ruhu buruşturur.  İçinizdeki heyecanı daima besleyin.

Happy Friday guys! And as promised, here are the two winners for round 3 and 4 of #frugalfridays 🙌 - - Our round 3 winner is @becca.odonnell , who submitted this photo of the bridge at New River Gorge Overlook. We really love how the vibe of the shot makes us feel like we could step into the photo and be right there too! The fog creeping in, while ominous, is interestingly calming when paired with the snowy surroundings and beautiful bridge in the background! Awesome shot Becca! - - Our round 4 (and final) winners for the March #frugalfridays competition goes to @amongthewildflowers80 and @faithfulhiker for the photo submitted of this amazing Utah trip ( @amongthewildflowers80 entered the photo, @faithfulhiker took the shot)! The blue sky in contrast with the Utah terrain is a recipe for beauty 😍 Wish we were there for sure! - - Wanna see the other photos we decided to feature from the winner’s pages? They are up on our story now!! - - - #FrugalBackpacker #spendless #playmore #WNC #local #AshevilleNC #GreenvilleSC #YeahThatGreenville #828isgreat #blueridgmountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemoments #hiking #camping #outdooradventure

Highest point east of the Mississippi 📍. This was a little confusing to me, because I always got excited to see a sign in Interstate 80 on my drives to and from Penn State that said “highest point east of the Mississippi”. I wondered how there could be two highest points. However turns out the one in Pennsylvania has a little caveat. It actually says “highest point (on I-80) east of the Mississippi”. And now I can cross both off my bucket list. #cruisingcarolinas #explorerebabes #nomadgirls #outdoorwomen #mountmitchell #adventureawaits #getoutside #mountainliving #blueridge #blueridgemoments #retrieverstagram #gloriousgoldens #summit #exploreNC #northcarolina #hikeNC #highestpointeastofthemississippi

Luckily, I found out that I don't necessarily need to finish my second degree in order to apply for grad programs. I'll be spending the rest of this semester researching schools, looking at deadlines, and finishing which ever side projects I can. Hopefully, things pan out and I end up somewhere neat.⁣ ⁣ #OnlyInNorthCarolina #naturenc #ncoutdoor_inc #ncoutdoorculture #ScenicNC #ncstateparks #visitnc #ncoutdoors #SouthernStatesCo #eastcoastcreatives #ExploreCarolina #naturalnorthcarolina #carolinacollectives #northcarolina #ourstatemag #ncphotographer #nationalparkservice #nps #gooutsideandplay #blueridgemoments #theblueridgers #solarcollective #hippomag #stayandwander #la_minimal #exploreobserveshare

Sunrise serenity, right? Wrong! Although beautiful, it was so windy, I didn’t leave my SUV and I actually googled what wind speeds will flip a vehicle. After my google search calmed me down, I enjoyed the beauty of the fast moving clouds and snapped a few shots from my window. • • • • • • • #godsartwork #godscreation #sunset_sunrise_beautiful #sunrise_sunset_photogroup #sunrise_and_sunsets #onlyinnorthcarolina #blueridgemountainlife #blueridgemoments #naturenc #northcarolina_igers #romanticasheville #discover_carolinas #exploreboone #ncoutdoors #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #visitnc #visitmysmokies #southernstatesco #scenicnc #celebratingnc #ncdailydose #homenc #outaboutnc #itsbetterherethanthere #nature #naturephotography #trails #wncmountains #sunrise

Deer in the yard! I just took this out the bedroom window, through tint, a screen, trees in the foreground, about 50 yards away right at sun up so the light is very dim. I know they said the camera was better on my new phone but I am really impressed! I could never have gotten this with my other phone camera, not even close.

Honest confession here: we’re not the most hardcore adventurers out there. Not by a LONG shot. We can be fair weather adventurers sometimes, especially with our respective full-time jobs that are pretty demanding. When it comes to the weekend, sometimes we just want to chill. Or clean our house. Or build up our garden. Or get day drunk. 🤣 But for both of us, nature is always the place we return for peace and clarity. 🙌 It’s not about how many peaks you bag or rad cliffs you climb. Or maybe it is for you. You do you dog. But for us, it’s about appreciating the awesomeness of nature whenever we’re blessed to be in it...and not ever criticizing ourselves for not adventuring more. 🤘And sometimes soaking in nature is about reveling in a simple moment on your front porch, listening to the birds chirp and the squirrels scamper.

"Begin at the beginning", the king said gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop." ~Lewis Carroll . . This sounds like something smart and irritating my father would say. But the more I think about it, the more I like the simplicity of the message. You have to start somewhere so dont overthink it, and when it's over it's over. Let it go. Easier said than done sometimes, but good advice nonetheless. . . . #lookingglassrock #pisgahnationalforest #pisgah #brevardnc #getoutsideandplay #carolinacollectives #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #appalachian_explorers #eastcoastcreatives #discover_carolinas #ncoutdoors #ncoutdoor_inc #ncoutdoorculture #asheville #ashevilletrails #romanticasheville #828isgreat #naturephotography #naturalnorthcarolina #exploretocreate #wildernessculture #wildish #collectexperiencesnotthings #ourstatemag #nc #visitasheville #blueridgeparkway

Hum … not really #TalkingExcitingly about these shots. I clearly have a lot of work to do with putting myself into my pictures. Nonetheless when you surprisingly find you have Minnehaha Falls to yourself why not play outside your comfort zone. Picture #1 - I like where I positioned myself in the foreground, creating a sense of depth. However, for some reason I only took the one long exposure shot, verse poping of my ND6 filter for taking the picture of myself. I clearly cannot be still for 2.5 seconds. Picture #2 - I placed myself out of the foreground, but at least I took two shots and blended them in Photoshop. If you squint real hard you can see me blending into the water.

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Outdoor photography and adventures have become my passion!! I literally CRAVE being outdoors, exploring the woods, seeing where the next adventure takes me, and a serene sunrise walk on the beach. It’s made me look at things in a different light and appreciate what this world {and I} have to offer! It’s also allowed me to connect with so many wonderful people in groups I’m involved in and virtually 🤩 I feel like I have an Instagram family that I’ve never met before since we share the same passions {which I think is totally awesome}!!

Coming out of Glasgow, VA was this milestone. Not only is it a very recognizable landmark on the trail, but I had been to this spot before a couple years prior to celebrate New Year's with a couple good friends. After a quick pit stop in town to get a huge lunch/dinner, I crossed this bridge. I think I remember it being the longest foot bridge on the AT, and it replaced a rickity wood bridge that used to go across this major river. The person who funded the money for the bridge bought the concrete pylons that used to support an old train bridge from the railroad company for $1. I guess the railroad was going to have to remove them, but this guy made them an offer they couldn't refuse. Unfortunately, the bridge was finished after the person died, but there is a plaque dedicated to him on the Southbound side of the river. . . Did you stop in at Glasgow?

Horsepasture River, Western NC This 18 mile river has been designated a National Wild and Scenic River due to the beautiful waterfalls it features. With the recent rains it was flowing rapidly on the day of my hike. Located in the Pisgah National Forest, you can hike along the River and see the waterfalls from a trail head in Gorges State Park. #northcarolina #earthpics #landscapelovers #landscape #hikingtrail #waterfalls #blueridgemountains #brevardnc #trail #appalachianmountains #asheville #pisgahnationalforest #hiker #hikingadventures #hikinglife #natureshot #beautyofnature #nature_brilliance #trekking #backpacking #optoutside #amazing_shots #adventurer #nature_photo #blueridgemoments #natgeoyourshot #ashevilletrails #waterfallchasing #wnc #river
