Another favorite from this years fall color chase. Arriving about 15 minutes before sunset at this waterfall, dubbed by many as chopstick falls. There was not a whole lot of time to find a composition and catch the soft glow from the falls. But one composition stood out as I approached the falls, the one shown here and I don't know if I could be more happy with how it turned out. . . . . . #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #ourplanetdaily #pnwisbeautiful #usinterior #ig_color #pnw_compass #pnwdiscovered #pnwcollective #pnwparadise #oregon #stunnersoninsta #pnw #oregonexplored #longexposure_shots #longexposure #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #pnwlife #earthfocus #earth_shotz #earthpix #fallcolors #oregonnw #exploreoregon #traveloregon #bestoforegon #jj_oregon #northwestexplored

Had hoped to get some reps in with the camera today. Ended up just taking a riverfront hike and leaving the camera in the pack since the rain never let up. Good ol’ Washington liquid sunshine.. 🙂

Another favorite from a quick ski trip up on Rainier last Friday. While pretty sunsets are always nice, I'm happy to say that winter has finally arrived in the Cascades.

Rise and shine. I can’t make up mind my about the fog. I’m not against it except. The foggy days typically have lame sunrises and sunsets. Yet when the fog is clumpy and flows, it’s stunning. This is an IR sunrise image from the other morning.

My least favourite part about winter on the west coast is we hardly even get snow just mass amount of super cold rain. These are the days I’m glad I work indoors.

Happy #internationamountainday ! Throwing it back to my favorite mountain in the PNW, the beautiful Mt. Hood. Memories made even better by the fact that I got to summit her with dear friends, literally hours after I summited Mt. St. Helens. Pictured with me here is my Twin A, and mentor @justin.pucci_af who also loves her as much as I do. Can’t wait to go back and send her again on more technical routes! 📸 by my mountain soul sister, @jessica.sagnella.

There's an argument to be made that Northern Resident Killer Whales are the true BC Killer Whales. Obviously most people know of the Southern Residents and their struggles, but it's actually the Northern Residents that spend more time in BC waters. The NRKWs range between the entrance to Juan de Fuca Strait and Glacier Bay in southeastern Alaska. During summer and fall they are most frequently sighted in Johnstone Strait. The NRKWs have a "threatened" status under the Species at Risk Act (SARA), but since population studies began by the Fisheries and Oceans Canada their numbers have more than doubled. They identified 120 NRKWs in the 1970s, and when they released their 2017 data in May this year there were a record high 309! This is all leading to an increase in comparison studies to try and assess how the NRKWs are growing at a healthy rate, yet the SRKWs are in decline. Pictured is G81 from an encounter on August 1st. Massive thanks again to @jftofino & @jennifersteven for inviting me to tag along!

Wow- how is it already this far into December? I have been so behind on blogging and Instagram, but I’ll be honest- I’m not super upset about it. I’ve been spending time with my friends and family, and it’s definitely what I’ve needed these past few weeks. That being said, I’ve got some great content coming your way later this week, so stay tuned! I’m already planning big picture for 2019, and am so excited for this next year! . . . #xoxolovelaura #cozystyle #aexme #sperryduckboots #amazonfashion #americaneaglejeans #christmastreefarm #pnwisbeautiful #oregonexplored #exploregon #portlandbloggerbabes #portlandblogger #herpnwlife #oregonlife #northwestcreatives #pnwisbest #communityovercompetition #exploreoregon #traveloregon #pnwonderland #oregonblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder2k #moxiepresets

You never know what behaviour you'll witness when you head out on a tour in Clayoquot or Barkley Sound. Here's a moment captured by one of our skippers last season that highlights just that. Sea otters and sea lions typically ignore each other, but this moment shows that typical doesn't mean always. A group of young sea lions approached the raft of sea otters, grumbled and growled at them, dove underwater when they got close and then surfaced baring teeth and "roaring". Our best guess is that it was some form of territorial behaviour. It's worth remembering that sea lions are very intelligent animals - it could simply be curiosity or group "play" behaviour. An incredible moment for sure!

Snowy days with this one. ❄💙❄ Also, this series of photos sums us up pretty well - 1: uproarious laughter, ✔ 2: leaning on each other while enjoying a moment of beauty, ✔ 3: her, grabbing my ass, ✔. Just a normal day with Tess. 😂

▪Drama▪ I originally edited this photo about 3 months ago and put it in my Not Self-Confident Enough To Post folder because I thought it came out too dramatic and my editing skills needed time to improve. Fast forward 3 months and I re-edited the shot only to find that I did nearly the exact same edit. This scene has spoken and it has demanded drama. On a side note, my apologies for being MIA. Thirty minutes after getting back from Mexico I got extremely ill (thank god it didn't strike on the plane ride!) and am still recovering from it. In that time I lost 65 followers (traitors...) but I also lost 10 pounds and can almost see a two pack. Silver freaking lining.

A different view of the Godifoss waterfall in Iceland. It’s just at the top of the screen. People on the top left, cars on the top right give it scale. The cascades show the color with less mist. Godifoss got its name after the people threw all their stone gods in the river.

Frozen Franklin Falls is one of the most beautiful scene in the Northwest during this time of year. Always a good time with one of my uber talented friends @skookumwoodworking.

After a few attempts to get out there, thanks to bad weather and a federal government shutdown, I finally made it to Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Well worth a visit. The park is nicely maintained and the abandoned quarry is full of seals. The cobble beach is beautiful and sounds amazing as the stones clack together when the surf runs over them. #yaquinaheadlighthouse #lighthouse #lighthouses #oregoncoast #oregon #newportoregon #lighthouse_lovers #lighthouse_captures #lighthouse_world #lighthouses_around_the_world #lighthousesofinstagram #lighthousephotography #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwcollective #pnwisbeautiful #thatpnwlife #pnwdiscovered #oregonlife
