I've been wanting to shoot this beautiful sea stack for a while now and I finally was able to. This sea stack wasnt particularly easy to find and the way down to shoot this thing wasnt any easier to figure out... but after some research and trial and error, we finally made our way down this somewhat sketchy trail that ends with sheer drop offs.  We didnt have the best conditions for sunset, so we ended up giving it a go in the morning and I'm really glad we did. It gave way to a little bit of light and color and some beautiful clouds.

On a beautiful day such as this, the Oregon coast can feel like the tropics. When I'm in a place that I know has been shot a lot, I love the challenge of trying to find interesting compositions and new perspectives. Sometimes it's a hit... sometimes it's a miss. I'm not sure exactly where this falls, but I think I like it. Looking out through the beautiful forested coastline on our way down to this  beautiful natural bridge way.

I heard this waterfall was super popular, but I decided to shoot it just incase I was the first to discover it 😏.

Oregon sure has some purdy waterfalls and forests.... and coastlines and mountains... and just about everything. Had an amazing time exploring this state for the first time with my good friend @a.j.wardphotography last week. We spent five days covering a lot of ground, from waterfalls and coastlines, to mountains and lava fields, there is a lot this state has to offer. It was unfortunent that a lot of the trails deep within the Columbia River Gorge are still closed and blocked off due to the fire 2 years ago, but the recovery so far is amazing. We did happen to find this beautiful area a little outside the closed off section that we were able to hike to though. Enjoy some waterfall goodness and have a fantastic 4th of July weekend.

Throw back to last Spring visiting the amazing Mt. Sneffels, part of one of my favorite mountain ranges in the country! Cant wait to go back and get some new shots of this amazing area this Summer.

Spent the evening hiking around this beautiful park in Boulder with the one and only @benstraussphotography. It wasnt until we decided to hike back to the car that this scene, and the light in particular, started to materialize. We decided the best thing to do was basically snap the same photos of the same place.... cause why not! Be sure to check out his rendition, its probably way more awesome anyways!

The amazing Oechinensee Lake in Kandersteg, Switzerland. With it's draw dropping high mountains and peaks, gadorade like water, and massive size, it's no wonder this place has become one of my favorite alpine lakes that I have ever visited.

The mighty Kirkjufell mountain of Iceland. It's no wonder this place is shot to death, its absolutely stunning!!

The pinnacles of an underrated canyon in Utah. When the morning light unabashedly grazes the beautiful spires and brings them to life.

The Watchman. Such an iconic location to shoot, and rightfully so. If you haven't made it out to this amazing National Park, it is definently  worth the trip. The southwest has some of the most beautiful and surreal landscapes around!!

Sometimes there are no words to describe the beauty, mystery, and sense of awe this place invokes. It's the reason I return year after year!! πŸπŸ‘sheep for scale!

Sometimes the best views arent that far away. If Bob Ross painted this. I'm sure he would say that's one happy little home.

A hazy, windy, and misty evening in Iceland. Sometimes it pays to go back revisit the archive of shots you always overlook. I must have passed by this shot a million times and never thought anything of it. Last night I decided to work on it and I really like the results. Iceland seems to look spectacular and dreamy no matter the conditions.

The many moods and faces of Iceland. In August, I will be heading back to Iceland and backpacking through the Highlands and Thorsmork to the southern coast. It's a trip I have been wanting to do for years in an area of Iceland I've yet to visit. I guess you could say I'm excited about it!!

The views here never get old.  Counting down the days until I get to visit this amazing valley once again! And hopefully next time I can spend more time discovering all it has to offer.
