I have a horrible fear of flying, but seeing first light hitting Rainier’s summit while it rises out of a sea of clouds makes it kind of worth it.

Brisk Bliss... Another icy adventure we’ll never forget. I haven’t made it back to beauty since this Snowpocalypse a couple years ago with my homie @jwhtravels Hiking over a mile up those steep switchbacks, literally covered in treacherous ice with unforgiving bone chilling wind gusts, it all paid off when we laid eyes on this scene! But then we had to go back down, which was even more sketch. Luckily we both made it safely with another awesome adventure to share. May try to go back here our next snow! ❄️🤔❄️ • • #oregon #oregonexplored #hubs_united #aswediscover #cascadiaexplored #pnwisbeautiful #wildernessculture #pnwonderland #canon_photos #waterfall #fantastic_earth #earth_shotz #artofvisuals #earthoutdoors #roam247 #jaw_dropping_shots #greettheoutdoors #amazing_longexpo #Nakedplanet #earthofficial #naturegramy #travellingthroughtheworld #chasingwaterfalls #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #longexpo_addiction #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #MadeWithMeFOTO #longexposure_shots

For well over a year I have wanted to photograph the frozen methane bubbles of Abraham lake, two weeks ago I got my chance. A somewhat spontaneous trip that @jen_grand and I decided to do just a few days before we went, I was so ready to capture some awesome images of these bubbles. What I was not quite ready for was the extreme cold. Our first night in banff we were greeted with -9f/-22c weather and high winds that seemed to start as soon as we set up our tripods and the next night when I took this it wasn’t much better. The cold pierced through my 7 layers of clothes like little daggers making even simple tasks difficult, but it was all worth it. Banff in winter really is a magical place . . . #amazing_shots #earth_shotz #moodygrams #bns_earth #special_shots #depthsofearth #agameof10k #earthofficial #splendid_earth #lensbible #mg5k #shainblumff #ig_color #compassoutdoors #pnwdiscovered #pnwonderland #moods_in_frame #igersmood #cascadiaexplored #destinationpnw #longexpo_addiction #igworld_global #ourplanetdaily #longexpoelite #jaw_dropping_shots #planet_earth_shots #pnwisbeautiful #ig_shotz_le #longexposure_shots

I’d trade skyscrapers for mountains any day 🏔 • Recently, I’ve been feeling a bit *trapped* in the city. Between the record snowfall and some unfortunate car issues, it’s felt incredibly difficult to find even a small window to escape. • Seriously counting down the days until spring/summer☀️

This is classic Pacific Northwest, a trip to it is incomplete without seeing this wonder. It is easily accessible but continues to be a place that gets me grinning. Another nice part of this place is that there is a sweet hike you can go on to the top and inland to catch another waterfall and even loop around to see much more. . . . . . . . #multhnomafalls #pnwonderland #rainbow #passionpassport #oregonnw #light #godscreation #bridge #oregonexplored #oregon #westcoast #naturelovers #colorful #artofvisuals #nowdiscovering #cascadiaexplored #pnw #wishyouwerenorthwest #visitoregon #oregonstate #nature #forest #pacificnorthwest #pnwisbeautiful #travelphotography #traveloregon #beautifuldestinations #waterfall

Visiting Cannon Beach has been on my bucket list for so long. When we first drove up and saw this massive formation peeking through the trees and houses we were shocked. It’s such an incredible place and had such a unique feeling. We got there a few hours before sunset to make sure we had enough time to really enjoy it. The sun was out for one of the first times during our trip and the sky was so pretty and blue. It was a perfect way to end the night💙

Confession: I’m a bit of a lone wolf when it comes to exploring places🐺 . Don’t get me wrong...I love actually going to new places with friends...but once we get there, I tend to want to go off on my own for a bit to take in the sights at my own pace without feeling or worrying about holding other ups or ignoring friends while I focus on taking photos🤳📸 What about you? Are you one to stick with the pack the whole time or do you tend to wander off on your own like me too? •••••••••••••••••••••• #vancouverisland #vanisle #sharevi #beautifulbc #explorevancouverisland #hellobc #vanisletrue #womenwhoexplore #hikingtheglobe #herpnwlife #cowichan #cowichanvalley

While we are getting ready for whale watching on March 1st, we wanted to remind you that bear watching starts on April 1st. Black bears will emerge from their winter dens, focus on re-hydrating at first, then return to the shorelines at low tides to find food. We see them displaying their omnivorous diet on a daily basis. They eat everything from grasses and berries to crabs and worms on the beaches in our areas. We see them from April through to the end of October. Our tours run at low tide, which gives us the best chance of finding these incredible animals. It means there are different departure times each day, with tours lasting 2-3 hours. Bear watching departs from both our Tofino and Ucluelet locations.

One of my favorite places dressed in her winter wardrobe. This was a transcendental hike. After getting stuck in the snow and everyone in the group exhausted from trying to get unstuck the decision was made to wait till morning. Everyone went to bed at 2am except me. I was so close and I had to see her. I hiked in alone at 2:00 AM and had this perfect space all to myself and all morning. Took this and many other shots at first light right before hiking out. 🙏🌲❤ . . . #thatoregonlife #oregonexplored #oregonnw   #jj_oregon #earthfocus #northwestcreatives #pacificnw #staypnw #pnwparadise #pnwlife #pnwdiscovered   #collectivelynorthwest #nwcreativecollective #thenwadventure #pnwisbeautiful #pnwonderland   #pnwexploring #pnwuncovered #cascadiaexplored   #exploretocreate #exploreeverything #hikingtheglobe #aov #frametality #folksouls #agameoftones #heatercentral #globalpixels #pnwuncovered #pnwescapes

Let’s keep those PNW moods rolling that I started on Friday. For those that saw my story this weekend, I had a miserable fail entirely my own fault. Left my snowshoes in the car thinking the snow would be packed down. Turns out, the warm spell midweek turned it to 3’ deep slush. After post holing for for 2hrs and only going 3mi and absolutely exhausted, we turned around and headed back without reaching our destination realizing that we still had 2mi to go and we’d be spending a bunch of time in the dark. Passed some other photogs who’d gotten an earlier start and they confirmed it was one of the harder hikes they’ve ever done. Lesson learned (more like reaffirmed) to be better prepared. Thankfully, the fog was rolling around in the gorge on our drive in and we promptly pulled off at an overlook so I was able to salvage something from the weekend.

The sun broke through the clouds and fog giving way to this beautiful view for only a couple seconds... and within a minute, the golden light closed again and I didn’t see another day sunlight in this area until a couple hours later. Time is precious, even out in the field and I try my best to make the most of it. The trees may look small at scale but in reality, they're towering giants! Sometimes you need to do some out of the box thinking to get a fresh look at your photos. I could've took the easy route and posted the full picture, and called it a day. Had I done that, I'd be missing the entire point of why I took this photo... sweet juicy details! When I obsess over the smallest of details or play with the crop until I'm happy, I often forget how much time I invest in a single photo because "people generally won't see the difference anyway..." but then I try not to beat myself up too much because I always feel that the extra time I put into in these tweaks makes all of the difference in the end... so how do you like the crop in this first photo?

Took a little adventure down to the Valley Of The Giants yesterday, I’ve tried to go before but got lost, went back this time with two sets of directions. Made it there after helping some nice folks move a downed tree out of the way with the truck. Then, nearly slid off a snowy road on the way back and got some help from the same nice folks I helped out earlier. It was quite the trip, very remote. It’s difficult to capture the size of these trees, some of which are 450 years old, had some beautiful light and captured this. #jj_oregon #jj_nature #pnwescapes #jj_westcoast #barefootkings #wonderfuloregon #oregoncoastrange #traveloregon #valleyofthegiants #jaditpnw #naturaloregon #westbysouthwest #cascadiaexplored #earthfocus #sonyalphasclub #earthpix #pnwdiscovered #pnwonderland #pnwisbeautiful #pnwroamers #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #oregonnw #goremote #greatnorthcollective #pnwcollective #oregonexplored #zeissbatis18mm #oldgrowth #leavenotrace

Finally a winter waterfall shot! While I didn't get the chance to visit Proxy this weekend I did have fun destoying my leg muscles breaking trail behind Tumalo and trying to reach all of the falls behind it. Unfortunately I only made it to double falls as every step I took had me nearly waist deep in snow and contemplating how much my thigh muscles could really take. I'm happy to report that they can take a lot but sadly need a full day to recover as attested by the fact that I had to use my arms to lift my legs over the tub wall to "step" into the shower 😂 I hope you all had some fun winter adventures and I can't wait for this weekend to tackle Proxy!

What's your ideal living situation? For me I've always wanted a few acres of land and a decent little house. Somewhere that I could do whatever I wanted and build whatever on my property. One day I'll get there. In the meantime I'll just keep appreciating houses like this. Big open field and a cool looking house. I've driven past it so many times and with snow it made for a great scene! ______________________________ Sony a6k sigma 60mm 2.8 ______________________________ · · · · · · #thatpnwlife #bestoforegon #liveauthentic #upperleftusa #traveloregon #getoutside #ourplanetdaily #exploreoregon #wildernessculture #wanderlust #oregonexplored #pnwlife #jj_oregon #washingtonexplored #earthfocus #pnw #exploretocreate #pnwcollective #oregonnw #oregon #cascadiaexplored #pnwexplorations #youroregon #agameoftones #theoutbound #artofvisuals #pnwisbeautiful #pnwdiscovered #pnwonderland #stayandwander

Silver Falls is definitely one of my favorite places in Oregon, —waterfall after waterfall, the hike never gets boring. I love that you can walk behind some of them...reminds me of Iceland! What’s your favorite waterfall in the PNW?

Out of curiosity, how long have you guys been into photography? And if you don’t mind, I'd also be curious to learn how you got into photography and what you love most about it? 🌲 As for me, my wife bought me my first DSLR camera earlier this year (technically last year now I suppose) and I started doing actual photography trips in August. The first few months were spent learning how to take pictures and reviewing images shot from this time period is kind of like reviewing a comedy of errors. I'd like to think I've improved over time though, and it is only fairly recently that I feel as if I've gotten a slight handle on things (if that ever truly happens, that is). 🌲 This particular composition was found on a short hike near one of my favorite pair of waterfalls. The color tones of the trees and grass were the first thing that grabbed my attention, but I also really loved the tree in the foreground and how it was casting a reflection in the still waters of the creek. It is a busy composition, however I think there is enough separation for it to work. I'm fully aware these aren't the type of images that tend to do well on IG but they are my absolute favorite to shoot with so many places the eyes can explore. What do you guys think? 📸 GEAR USED @nikonusa @reallyrightstuff @nisifiltersus @nisiglobal @benrousa

Snowena Crest. This is one of 3 pictures I actually ended up taking during yesterday’s fail hike. Nothing worked out yesterday. It’s one of those things you just have to look back and laugh at. How many of you guys have just had an absolute failure of an adventure? Tell me about your worst hike fail. I’m curious if anyone had as rough of a day as we did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • • • #earthoutdoors10k #yourshotphotographer #artofvisuals #earthfocus #visualsofearth #earthpix #splendid_earth #upperleftusa #ournaturedays #discoveroregon #jj_oregon #oregonnw #traveloregon #oregonexplored #cascadiaexplored #wishyouwerenorthwest #pnwcrew #thatpnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #pnwisbeautiful #pnw_moods #collectivelynorthwest #voyaged #teamsony #sonyalpha #bealpha @thatpnwlife @portland @fstoppers @natureonly @landscapescapture @earthfocus @earthpix @earthporm
