Tucson has been having killer sunsets lately! Found this cool saguaro whose arms were literally almost touching the ground to get a unique perspective. Hope everyone is having a great week! Remember prints are available on my website and can be shipped internationally! Your support is greatly appreciated!

A gorgeous day out in Nature. ➡️ How easily I forget the amazing feeling I get when in the desert. ➡️ ➡️ ➡️ discovering new blooms and the cool breeze of Spring is just what I needed .... It's easy to slip into the negative feelings of what we are facing. Find that thing that gets you smiling again.
Wishing you all good health 🙏🏼 Recommended pages @crave_the_wild @brianjohnsadventure @light.chaserz
Have the best day every day! ❣️

Wild and beautiful
And drenched in sun
Perfect hike on a day off to rejuvenate my soul. Laying down in the pine needles. Near the pond watching the clouds roll above the pines, I felt peace.
Found a cactus stuck to my 🍑 after I took this. It was looking real sharp.

Owls hoot in B flat, cuckoos in D, but the water ouzel sings in the voice of the stream. She builds her nest back of the waterfalls so the water is a lullaby to the little ones. Must be where they learn it. -from Sarah Canary by Karen Fowler
I hope to hear the songs if these Ouzles one day. For now I enjoyed the sounds of this lovely little AZ fall and you can enjoy this photo. 🐦 #FunFact : Water Ouzel [bird], aka American Dipper; John Muir devoted an entire chapter in one of his books, to the only aquatic songbird in N.America. Because they need clean water, seeing them nestle in a fall or steam indicates its superb 💦 quality. They are found in the Sierra Nevada year round and near unpolluted waters of mountain, coastal, and desert streams of the West.

Sending good vibes to everyone 🌏
To evolve from one’s own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention.
In case you ever wondered what the scale was REALLY like at the Grand Canyon. 😱
All credit for this beautiful photo goes to @robbiegd11! It’s such a remarkable story that reminds me of kindness in the world and encourages me to stay positive at times like this. This was back in February, when Robin saw me twirling in the distance and snapped some photos, then scoured through Instagram tags of the Grand Canyon until she found me! One of the most wonderful surprise comments I’ve ever received on my feed was from Robin saying, “You don’t know me, but I SAW YOU at the Grand Canyon and I have photos I took of you from a distance perspective!” She was then kind enough to email me some of these photos. 🧡
Please live by Robin’s example, especially during these times when everything is so challenging and stressful. Remember that something you do can make an difference in someone else’s life—even if you don’t know them. 🤗
Grand Canyon National Park. Arizona. March 2019 --- Oh boy was this trip an adventure. In my 27 years of life I had never seen the Grand Canyon with my own eyes. To call it grand is an understatement. It is truly one of the most awe inspiring examples of the power of water, and the mind boggling age of our planet. And I got to see what felt like the entirety of it. My friends and I departed at 7am from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and in a single day, walked over 24 miles- with a 4,380 foot descent to the Colorado River and ended with a 5,760 foot ascent to the North Rim. That day was filled with 90 degree weather, and freezing rain and snow (and some of the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen). I have done some physically challenging things in my life, but this excursion takes the cake. I was plagued with blisters halfway through the hike, and I had literally no appetite. I look back at the last 4-5 miles that were hiked uphill in the depths of night, and in the rain and snow, and I am still surprised I was able to push through. There were some dark moments for sure. Our plan was to camp at the North Rim, but the weather had other ideas for us. We made it to the Grand Canyon Lodge at the North Rim around 11pm, hoping they’d have an open room but along with there being no power and no running water in the lodge, there was also no vacancy. Thankfully, the concierge, whom was sitting in the pitch dark, let us crash in the lobby. I have never slept on a more comfy couch in my life. This hike taught me several things. It showed me how much physical strain I can put on my body while still functioning. It taught me to get an earlier start. It taught me to not think of my bad knees as a hindrance, because they are capable of much more than I think. It showed me that those long through hikes I dream about embarking on are more of a reality. And it taught me that I am without a doubt, a type II fun kind of person, through and through.
ОХ УЖ ЭТОТ ПЕРФЕКЦИОНИЗМ...
В принципе на вопрос «вы перфекционист?» можно ответить только да/нет. В этом понятии сложно выделить какой-либо переход.
Честно говоря, являясь перфекционистом, я вижу в этом больше минусов, чем плюсов. Хотя момент довольно спорный. Это касается множества аспектов в жизни: своего дела, работы, уборки, отношений, окружающих вещей, невозможности не поставить запятую, быстро печатая текст...Но иногда спасает юмор и самоирония🤪
Почему это хорошо?
✨В любое дело вкладываешь максимум, чтобы довести до совершенства.
✨Всегда хочешь улучшать свои навыки, потому что для тебя нет границ развития. То есть любишь учиться.
✨В фотографии, к примеру, цель — либо выдать идеальную картину, либо ничего.
✨Протирал свой телефон антисептиком ещё до коронавируса))
Почему это плохо?
🔸Десять раз вернёшься, чтобы переделать.
🔸Сложно начинать новое, в чём не разбираешься. А зря.
🔸Постоянно недоволен результатом, потому что «можно же ещё лучше!»
🔸Разочарование в любом действии чаще, чем у других, в таких же ситуациях.
❓Знакомо что-то из вышеперечисленного? Лучше стремиться к недостижимому совершенству или наслаждаться тем, что и сейчас неплохо?
