Beach x bonfire x stargazing x bioluminescent wave chasing ~ ~ ~ ~ I saw three shooting stars and bioluminescent waves last night! Just think of all the shooting stars we miss, all the ones that we don’t see when we are too busy, too tired or even too cold. It’s so important to me to make time for the things that really make me appreciate beauty in the world we live in. ~ Tell me about your New Years resolutions below! What adventures do you have planned for next year?

Sure, a sunny day at the beach may be nice. But there’s something special about these moody winter skies

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” - C. JoyBell C.

When trying to take a picture with your dog, you live with what you get🤷🏼‍♀️ ———— The campsite we wanted may have been closed, and the hiking trail taken over by a race, but our quick getaway to the coast was just what we needed. Doesn’t matter if it’s not a long trip, or goes perfectly as planned, it’s just about getting out

I don’t think anyone likes the snow as much as my pup, Atlas. - - Huge shoutout to @ruffwear for keeping pup’s paws protected with their snow boots! - - Another thanks to @wolfgangmanandbeast for a killer collar!

Yesterday we hiked up to Dirty Harrys Balcony in North Bend and I won’t lie, it was tough. It’s been a while since I went on a hike and my legs and booty were burning in a hurry. But I just kept saying, “we’re almost there” and “we did not come this far, just to come this far”. Trying to cheer the both of us up that mountain. As you climb life’s mountains there are going to be times that you want to just quit and give up because it’s the easy thing to do. But I believe in resting not quitting. If you get tired or burnt out at work, rest don’t quit. If you’re struggling with a relationship with a friend or family member, rest don’t quit. If you are working towards your dreams, you’d better rest and not quit! It feels so good when you reach the top of your mountain and can look back at all the times you wanted to give up but instead chose to push forward and keep going. That’s where the growth is. In those times you decide to keep going and push yourself outside of your comfort zone. ALSO, make sure that you have incredibly positive, uplifting, badass friends to help cheer you on along the way and celebrate with you when you get to the top 💕

Emerald lake is such an awesome summer location. Though I'm craving warmer weather, I'd still love to see it during the winter months. Anyone want to lend me a teleporter? 🙃

my first time trying long exposure shots turned out alright ! hiked up to snow today on the gorge, utilizing a trail that was recently re opened after the eagle creek fire. as i drove along the old highway, i could see a rainbow stretching from washington over the gorge and touching down gently on the oregon side. driving home, mount hood filled my rearview mirror with explicit colors as the sun began to set ahead of me

Sometimes you just have to get out there and be alone. Remember sometimes, we’re taken into troubled waters so that our hearts can be filled, our minds cleansed, and our spirit renewed.

FLIGHT OVER GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, ARIZONA, USA, 2018 . It took me quite a while after my last trip to the states to go through all the pictures we made and find the time to edit some of them ... it’s done now - here we go! I’m looking very much forward to share some of my impressions from October and November with you :)

Day 9: a sunset to remember 32 hours later, we were on the road again. While we usually always have mixed feelings about our time on the road ending, in this moment all we wanted was to make it home. Not fully confident Birdie was totally fixed, the drive back to Seattle was a little nerve racking. Back at home, we weren’t finished yet. The head gaskets, fuel lines and other small parts needed to be replaced. We quickly learned the hardships of having a van, but in the end, it’s all still so worth it

I really need to get better about making a point to shoot wildlife. Usually when I’m out I don’t like to keep whoever I’m with waiting while I try to sneak a shot of an animal. Either that or I just mistime things. One of these days it’ll all come together. 👍🏻 . . . #hiking #viewpnw #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwexplored #cascadiaexplored #upperleftusa #mountrainier #mtrainier #pacificnorthwest #pacificnortheast #compassoutdoors #pnwparadise #adventuretimesco #westernnature #thegreat_northwest #mtrainiernationalpark #nwexposure2018 #seattle_sites #pnwmoods #adventuretimesco #pnwadventuresquad #pnwisbeautiful #pnwroamers

The Mount Hood wilderness is amazingly beautiful. Tucked deep in the woods youll find Ramona falls, a beautiful cascading waterfall and certainly a photographers dream! I sat there most of the day waiting for the sun to drop at the right angle to catch some colour for this shot. Theres no substitute for the amazing beauty of natural light. ❤ #oregonnw #oregonexplored #onlyinoregon #traveloregon #oregoncoast #oregon #bestoforegon #coastexplorer #pnwparadise #pnwdiscovered #pnwisbeautiful #compassoutdoors #pacificnorthwest #pnwonderland #pnwlove #pnwmoods #upperleftusa #thatpnwlife #visitpnw #pnwcollective #moodygrams #ourplanetdaily #earthofficial #wanderlust #earthfocus #agameoftones #jaw_dropping_shots #creativecontentbuilders #sonyimages #outdoortones

My friend “The Glenn” twists and turns around every bend. One of my favorite stretches of highway in the United States. Be sure to properly stretch your neck before driving because you’re gonna be whipping it all around taking in all the views! Alaska the beautiful 🚗🛣⚠️🛣🚗

After 3 weeks and 8 failed attempts to capture low fog in Seattle I was faced with a difficult decision on whether to try again or go to another location. Skyfire was predicting an 80% probability of a good sunrise and the weather forecast was predicting 50% cloud cover in Seattle, but after so many failed attempts I was ready to go somewhere else. The other location I had in mind was mount shuksan which was also showing an 80% probability. The problem was that it was at the edge of where the light was predicted to be, I would be facing the wrong direction,and the weather forecast was predicting just 10% cloud cover. Everything was telling me that Seattle was the smart choice, so naturally I decided against it😎. I awoke the next morning and started the 1.5 hour drive up to mount shuksan. As I drove I imagine unrealistically good conditions like bubbles trapped in the ice or cracks in the ice like in banff😜. I finally arrived and was pleased to see that there was fresh snow and the lake was partially frozen just like I had hoped. Cloud cover looked good and even with an hour till sunrise I could already see a light pink glow. Shortly after finding my first composition the sky began to explode with color as I fired off shots. I then quickly moved to a second composition as the sunrise intensified firing of a few more shots and then looking for a 3rd. As I walked up to the edge of the lake I found the scene above. My eyes got wide as I thought to myself “ how did I not see this earlier.” The sunrise was now at its peak intensity. I quickly set up my camera taking an extra few seconds to refine my composition before capturing the image you see above. Super proud of this shot because I haven’t seen Anything like it from here. . #amazing_shots #earth_shotz #usaprimeshot #bns_earth #special_shots #depthsofearth #agameof10k #earthofficial #splendid_earth #lensbible #mg5k #colors_of_day #ig_color #compassoutdoors #pnwdiscovered #pnwonderland #moods_in_frame #igersmood #cascadiaexplored #destinationpnw #ig_world_color #igworld_global #ourplanetdaily #reflectiongram #jaw_dropping_shots #planet_earth_shots #pnwisbeautiful #ig_shotz_le #longexposure_shots

Day 8: and so we wait Reunited with the doggo (unfortunately he wasn’t able to come along on this trip), we waited to hear the diagnosis after dropping the van off at the only shop opened on a Sunday. Mechanic confirmed, water pump needed to be replaced, among other things. Now that we knew what needed to be fixed, we had to hope the parts we needed could be found in town. And, that the mechanic knew how to properly do the work on the van🤞🏼
