Eating food cooked over a campfire, sleeping to the sound of wind rustling through the trees, and waking up to the faces of elk friends... . We were only gone a couple of days but it’s been a slow adjustment getting back into the rhythms of modern society 💛

Cotton Candy over Roan! I have been really unmotivated to get out and shoot since I got back from Iceland. A hike up to Grassy Ridge with a great group of other photogs with an epic sunrise was just what I needed to get back into the swing of things. Thanks gang and thanks Jim for letting us stay on your mountain! It's easy to take a place for granted but these old hills hold so much magic. So thankful to live in such a beautiful place! . . . #optoutside #828isgreat #getoutstayout #wnc #photooftheday #beautifuldestinations #explorecarolina #adventureasheville #sonyalpha #blueridgemoments #stayandwonder #nature #visitnc #greettheoutdoors #letscamp #hiking #ashevilletrails #discover_carolinas #neverstopexploring #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #landscapephotography #theoutbound #itsamazingoutthere #southernwild #whyiloveasheville #nc_outdoorinc #ScenicNC #sunset #sunset_stream

Red Bush, from last Thursday. I was up on the trail again this morning, but may need to put this project on a hiatus until I can go further north. Unfortunately I think I'm at the tail end of the bubble now. I only saw one guy in a couple hours out there this morning. Hopefully though I can head up to NH for vacation in a month or so though and get a lot more done once I find the bubble again! . . . . . #facesoftheappalachiantrail #facesoftheat #postthepeople #thruhiker #appalachiantrail #thruhike #thruhiking #backpacking #hiking #hikingadventure #wanderlust #staywild #fujifilm #xe1 #35mm #loveva #vaphotographer #roanokephotographer #outdoors #gooutside #blueridgemoments #blueridge #blueridgemountains #hikertrash #atthruhike2019 #mountains #mountainsarecalling #fujifilmglobal #mountainlove #blueridgeoutdoors

Simplicity ✨ . . . . . When starring out into these endless hazy mountains you are guaranteed to loose yourself in the moment. When photographing beautiful landscapes I always feel so content and full with happiness. One thing that I’m always trying to do is take at least 5 minutes to enjoy the surroundings without distractions and just SIMPLY ENJOY THE MOMENT. 🙌🏼 . . . . . . . . . . #explorecarolina #explorenorthcarolina #onlyinnorthcarolina #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments #nationalparkgeek #smokymountains #naturalunited #naturalnorthcarolina #shareyournc #discovernc #scenicnc #blueridgeoutdoors #appalachian_explorers #northcarolina #inspiredbyadventure #artofvisuals #stayandwander #outdoorpics #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #beautifuldestinations #theglobewander #wildernessculture #ournaturedays #depthsofearth #earthfocus #visualambassadors #stayandwander

It was crystal clear and blue skies when we left home, but by the time we got up to Table Rock, it had started to cloud over and turn hazy 🙄. Still, always nice to get out to the edge of the wilderness for an afternoon. #linvillegorge #linvillegorgeous #linvillegorgewilderness #shortoffmountain #tablerockmountain #grandfathermountain #pisgahnationalforest #myblueridge #828isgreat #blueridgemoments #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #nikkor70_300 #nikkor18_55 #lakejamesnc #lakejames #ncoutdoors

Each year, Ashe County Christmas tree farmers pick the pinecones off the trees. They do this so that the tree's energy goes into growing bigger and taller, not into developing pinecones. Sometimes, workers have to use ladders to pick the pinecones on the tops of the tall trees. That's a lot of pinecones!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #christmastrees #christmastree #christmastreefarm #treefarm #farm #farming #farmlife #ashecounty #ashecountync #ashecountychristmastrees #visitashe #thecoolestcorner #thecoolestcornerofnc #visitncfarms #accta #wnc #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments #highcountry #northcarolina #ncmountains #ncsmalltowns #itschristmaskeepitreal

Photo by📷 @matthewhahnel The first time Renee and I visited North America was back in 2012. We saved all of our money and did a three month road-trip. We started in Los Angeles, traveled up through the west coast mountains, took a cruise to Alaska and back, drove up to the Canadian Rockies, down through the Yellowstone and across to Chicago. I had been looking at pictures of this lake online for a while and was obsessed. Being from Australia I had never seen anything like it, and Renee actually bought me a large canvas print for my birthday that hung in my bedroom. The photo looked like it had been taken on a potato, but I loved it. During that trip we stayed in mostly cheap AirBNBs or camped to keep costs down, but at Moraine Lake we splurged and purchased a package that had us stay at the lodge for a couple of nights. It was truly a dream come true. In the mornings we would wake up for sunrise and make our way to the famous rock pile. We actually had it all to ourselves both mornings, which these days is pretty much impossible. Tourism has increased dramatically and often there are hundreds of people here for sunrise now. With that being said, I still can’t recommend this place enough for at least one visit in your lifetime. I’ve always said that if it weren’t for the crowds, this may be the most beautiful spot in the world. Regardless, it’s still pretty incredible and I can’t wait for my parents to get to experience it for themselves this summer. How many of you guys will be getting a chance to visit this year? . . . . . . . #thecabinchronicles #cabinfolk #thecabinland #eastcoastcreatives #cabinlife #tinyhouse #tinyhousemovement #outside_project #cabinsdaily #timeouthomes #cabinvibes #awakethesoul #exploretocreate #cabinlust #cabindiaries #folkgood #cabinlove #ourcamplife #mysouthernliving #modernoutdoorsman #stayandwander #lake #lifeofadventure #blueridgemoments #southernstatesco #folkscenery #theblueridgers #campeveryday

it’s the weekend: grab some friends / family & go watch a sunrise together 🌄👫🎉 . Why sunrise? It’s the perfect way to start the day. The world is still quiet, the birds are filling the air with joyful songs, and the air is cool and crisp. Then comes the light - slowly making its way across the sky, coloring clouds and setting trees aglow. And there you are...watching it all unfold — something way bigger than you. Your to-do list fades into the back of your mind, the phone screen that so often holds your eyes hostage is put away - you are completely open to the experience, totally aware of life. It’s a gift, especially when you get to share it with friends / family (or in the case of this photo a couple of strangers and their pups too)! You can’t help but feel grateful for another day...gracefully given to you from Above 🙏🏻 . Check out my story for a video from this magical morning! One of the girls was beautifully playing the ukulele & singing in front of 3 strangers as the sun came up over the mountain — which really spoke to me that we should all fearlessly share our gifts with the world! Please don’t hide your light ✨

Not a bad morning. Blustery sunrise hike with the kids, tea and snacks on the mountain, and now digging into a hot breakfast at the Pisgah Inn and it’s only 9 a.m.

What a day, I woke up at 2am to take these dope pictures and had a blast even though my sleep schedule is so messed up now but well worth the early morning and freezing wind on top of the overlook. #pentaxk70 #pentaxphotography #pentaxian #pentaxagram #portraitphotography #portrait #828isgreat #vibes #ashevillephotographer #wncphotographer #asheville #rainphotography #gotsoaked #visitasheville #blueridgers #adventure #ashevilletrails #sunrise #mountin #mountainvibes #blueridgemoments
