Drifting back to this brief moment watching the sunrise hit a golden snow storm... and the morning sun lighting up Boulder’s notorious 📍Flatiron Peaks, Boulder, Colorado — these iconic peaks of #bouldercolorado were lift and tilt into place between 35 and 80 million years ago... the age of these rocks, somewhere around 290 million years old. 🤯 #visitboulder #visitcolorado

Once upon a time this wild mountain goat strolled past my wide angle lens and it was one of the most thrilling wildlife encounters I could possibly hope for.

Not much introduction needed for this iconic location. Known for the way the bottom of the arch “glows” at sunrise, I was lucky to have had the perfect conditions to see this phenomenon on my first (and probably only) visit! . On my previous trip to this area, I purposely avoided this location due to how popular and busy it is at any time of the year. A big part of why I love landscape photography is being able to enjoy and appreciate nature while capturing their beauty. BUT, having never been here before I decided that I had to at least visit once, and I’m so glad I did. . Yes it was crowded as expected, but we had arrived a few hours before sunrise so we were in the first “row” of photographers in the “prime” spots. As for the weather, I couldn’t have asked for better conditions. There was a nice little burn yet it was pretty clear in the horizon so the glow under the arch was pretty strong. There was even a bit of snow! When the sun came out, it was just one of those moments you have to experience to really FEEL what it was like. The light and atmosphere was magical; it was so good it literally gave me chills. . I still don’t like crowded locations like these (who does anyways) but it was definitely worth the visit. After all, there’s a reason they’re so popular in the first place 😍 . . . #wowutah #westbysouthwest #utahunique #utahphotographer #nationalparkgeek #utahisrad #werutah #visitutah #southwest #discoverearth #utah #igsouthwest #visualsofearth #landscape_capture #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #landscapephotomag #ig_shotz #earthpics #trappingtones #worldtravelscapes #jaw_dropping_shots #earth_shotz #depthsofearth #destinationearth #globalcapture #earthscope #earthoutdoors #nakedplanet #natgeolandscape

Getting ready to head into Yellowstone for a week of winter wonderland adventures. Reminiscing with one of my favorites from last winter. Winter is such a special time in the National Parks, but especially in Yellowstone. Watching these two come down the river was surreal, and the snow made it that much more beautiful. Grateful for these sacred places and the special moments they protect. #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #moose #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #wildlife #winterwildlife #nature #animal_captures #wildlifephotography #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_seekers #alces #visitwyoming #yellowstonepledge #nanpapix #np10k #snow #protectourparks #wildlifeconservation #canon1dxmarkii #mycanonstory

Day 22: Impression Everglades Here's an abstract shot of an Everglades Hardwood Hammock. These are basically islands of trees throughout the Everglades that support a variety of wildlife. Shooting them isn't very inspiring, so I turned to an abstract trick to make them more interesting. You never know what the outcome with be when you fiddle around with abstracts--I was pretty pleased with this 'happy accident'. #AMP365Project #AmyMetrichPhotography #EvergladesNationalPark #DepartmentoftheInterior #NationalParkService #FindYourPark #nationalparkgeek #landscapephotohub #wanderlust #instagood #nikonnofilter #natureaddict #nikonusa #awesome_photographers #photographer_lover_insta #OPJanuary #landscape_lovers

•Elowah• (2017) I wish I knew then what I know now, the challenge of this place was immense although my connection was deep. I returned 4 times during my first trip to Oregon in 2017, this waterfall was something I’ve wanted to photograph for years, but I just didn’t feel like I could do it justice, my justice. Waterfalls were what really pulled me into photography, so the fact that I never captured an image of this place I felt in touch with has been burdensome. I hope one day I’ll get another chance to see this beauty in all its lush and vibrant splendor. Really looking forward to finally checking Iceland out in a few days with a couple of friends! It’s been a rocky start to 2019, but I am determined to make it the best year of my life! ================================================= If you’d like to know how I processed this, or any other image in my gallery consider a workshop or one on one post processing session! ================================================= Taken with my @nikonusa D850 and 24-70, 7 image pano, @nisiusa S5 cpl and 3 stop soft grad ================================================= Thank you to all the companies that have supported me and my journey! @nisiglobal @reallyrightstuff @fstopgear @weboost @gnarbox @battlebornbatteries and @roofnest ================================================= #amazing_landscapes #earthofficial #pictureline #ig_shotz #oregon #cascadiaexplored #landscapephotomag #fantastic_earth #nationalparkgeek #wonderful_places #ig_today #earthporn #fantastic_universe #big_shots #westcoast_exposures #exceptional_pictures #bestnatureshot #majestic_earth_ #usinterior #worldprime #artofvisuals #ig_unitedstates_ #oregonexplored #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #timetoplay #artofvisuals #igrefined

And now back to our regularly scheduled program...putting on my government shutdown blinders for now so that I don’t lose my mind over it! One of my favorite things is coming across old photos like these that I’ve never “discovered” in my own files before. This one is from a research trip that took me back to my old stomping grounds in Yosemite. Sunset and campfire smoke make for some beautiful scenery in the Tuolumne Meadows part of the park.

After a little bit of debate and a lot more research, we decided to explore Joshua Tree NP. It wasn’t “closed” after all. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very clean and orderly park. Thankfully, we didn’t witness anyone cutting down trees or vandalizing any areas in the park. Rangers are still working hard to keep the peace. If you are a ranger and happen to be reading this, I just want to thank you for showing up at such a crucial time. Thank you for protecting the park as well as those going there to enjoy all the natural beauty.❤️ . . Joshua Tree NP is a really special place as are all of the other national parks in our country. We are blessed to have these wild places to explore. We must respect the wildlife as well as Mother Nature and not take any of this natural beauty for granted.🙌🏼

Grand Canyon National Park (last October) Currently it’s considered unsafe and harmful to visit the parks, even trying to help could cause more damage. So we will be staying out of the parks until the government shutdown ends! Then we will be looking to volunteer under the park rangers’ guidance to best protect and rehabilitate the nearest park to wherever we are at that time. I encourage everyone else to also stay out of the parks and wait until it is safe and most helpful! #roadtrip #adventure #adventureisoutthere #nationalparks #visitnationalparks #travel #americathebeautiful #explore #neverstopexploring #toddler #hiking #protectpubliclands #wanderer #wanderlust #optoutside #inmyergo #travelingourplanet #nationalparkgeek #radparks #findyourpark #americathebeautiful #parkroamers #trailmothers #leaveitbetterthanyoufoundit #leavenotrace #saveourparks #takeonlypictures #leaveonlyfootprints #lnt #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnps

Sunrise from artist point taken about a week ago. I left the house a little after 3am and got to tunnel view at about 5:30. I thought about staying since no one was there but after 20 minutes I decided to grab my head lamp and hiked up to artist point. There wasn’t as much color as I hoped but Yosemite never disappoints.

Behind me was a cirque with at least 3 waterfalls but wanted to share a perspective not often shared looking back towards where the trail comes in at the foot of the lake. #choosemountains

The slot canyons of the southwest are incredible and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I ended up completely under exposing this shot since the Canyon gets pretty dark in the winter but luckily was able to recover some of the details in @lightroom thanks to @sonyalpha ability to capture amazing detail in the shadows . . . . . . . . . . . #antelopecanyon #pageaz #slotcanyon #visitarizona #usinterior #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #goparks #exploreutah #visitutah #wowutah #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #weliveelevated #utahisrad #findyouradventure #amongthewild #usaprimeshot #roamtheplanet #natgeoyourshot #ig_unitedstates #theoutbound #welivetoexplore #artofvisuals #agameoftones #igtones #sonyalpha #bealpha #tlpicks #wildernessculture

Lake Powell is the second largest man made lake in the US formed by the Glen Canyon Dam and a must see if you visit Page. The contrast between the blue waters and red & white sandstone is beautiful. We only explored a small part of this beautiful lake but definitely want to go back one day to explore more of this lake by 🚤 . . . Stop at the📍Wahweap Overlook off of US-89 for some great views of Lake Powell if you are in the Page area.

To say the southwest is beautiful is a understatement, there is a scenic view in every direction & the scenery is unlike anywhere else in the country . . . Though Glen Canyon National Recreation Area was closed to the government shutdown 😡, we were still able to visit some of these beautiful sites, starting with Lake Powell ——————————————————————— 📷 @sonyalpha a7rii, 24-70mm f2.8 . . . . . . . . . . #lakepowell #nationalparklife #usinterior #usnationalparks #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #nationalparkgeek #exploreutah #sonyalpha #bealpha #utahgram #visitutah #hikeutah #igutah #westbysouthwest #weliveelevated #roamtheplanet #nakedplanet #findyouradventure #amongthewild #igsouthwest #artofvisuals #natgeoyourshot #theIMAGED #igtones #youtah #werutah #welivetoexplore #gramslayers
