Not a bad morning commute! 😍
Quickly becoming obsessed with winter in Yosemite. The quiet stillness feels like the park herself taking a big sigh of relief. Summer is special for so many reasons (high country adventures anyone? 🙋♀️), but winter feels so restorative and needed ❄
How many of you have had the privilege of visiting this special place during the winter months?!
Jacksonhole Wyoming. You taught me to fall in love with my solitude. For that, I am forever thankful. My soul journey started here, Grand Teton National Park. 8/21/2017 was the most incredible moment I’ve experienced. It was the day of the solar eclipse. The fucking energy was rad. THANK YOU EARTH. 🌏
Wandering the dunes in Death Valley. So interesting to see all the different pathways in addition to smooth expanses of sand - like little desert highways.

First edited image from Yosemite with plenty more to come. I captured 350 images in total which is very very low for me. Very cold, very fun, all worth it. We had an engagement photoshoot on Tuesday and just did landscape the rest of the journey. 10/10, would do again any day!
Oooooopah 🙌The Grand Canyon is such a natural wonder! It's a pity that we didn't had more time to explore the beautiful landscape! 🏕🏞🏜 Our trip continued and the next part of our journey was the amazing city San Francisco 🌉✈️
Went on an off-trail hike at Joshua Tree and it was really cool to explore the wilderness without any trails or people around...
However, I wouldn't recommend you try it unless you know what you're doing. It can be pretty easy to get lost, especially in places like this where everything looks the same.
There's no water around and no signal so it would be difficult to survive if you got lost.
If you take the necessary precautions though, going on an adventure like this can be really fun.
After sunset at Ruby Beach, in Olympic National Park, Washington. This was one of my favorite beach photo locations I've ever been to. I loved the sea stacks and also got to meet some really cool people out there! (I have lots more to post...) While I was taking pictures, my wife and kids even got to see whales spouting in the distance! I hope I can visit the PNW again soon...maybe next time will be Oregon with @schmijwisc and @sheelark ?
I think I prefer the uncropped version (second shot) to the "Instagram Crop" (First one). Anyone else have a preference?
Solitude is something that you should partake in more often.. This lady way in the distance was all alone on her Great Sand Dunes hike and it reminded me that, as great as it is to hike with friends, it’s very important to give time to be all by yourself.
To me, hiking alone is where I find myself most calm and at peace with everything in life. It’s at these moments when I can shut down every thought that hinders my soul from freely living. I suggest you find a time to be alone and just let your soul breathe more often than you do currently. As humans, we need that human connection but don’t overlook the power of solitude 🚶🏻
A gorgeous scene I happened to notice as I was hiking out of the Narrows. A large cliff wall behind me was receiving direct sunlight which reflected and created some really nice glow on this wall photographed here. There were even a few trees with fall colors! The Narrows is one of those areas that you really can’t understand what it’s like to be there by looking at a picture. I feel underwhelmed looking at photos now that I have experienced it a few times myself. You just can’t capture how incredible of a place it really is. Plus you don’t get that incredible feeling of all the crowds that arrive by midday! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My audience has definitely changed quite a bit I’ve gotten a lot of new followers in the last six months or year or so, so I thought I would throw up a classic. Sometimes in a comment or caption I might talk about being surrounded by 20 wolves, and I know that might seem just entirely fantasy or something like that but for me it was actually reality back in December 2017. I’m really hoping to make some new stories possibly in South Africa or the Serengeti Wilderness soon, as well as India. How can one choose Africa vs India? @reubenfdes ? .
if you plan to go to @deathvalleynps make sure to give yourself more than a day or two... it’s a big park, and there’s a lot to see. we fit in quite a bit, but there’s still so much more to be explored. [11/11]

Capitol Reef National Park is one of those parks that you don’t really hear a lot about, but probably should. Although, at the same time, maybe its best that it continues to fly under the radar!
For years I’ve wanted to visit Capitol Reef’s Cathedral Valley, an area of the park known for unique rock formations and towering sandstone monoliths.
I mentioned in an earlier post frustrations with skies and weather conditions, but for this shot everything came together.
A beautiful field of lupines was in peak bloom at the feet of the Temple of the Moon. And it was also peak Milky Way season, the galaxy lining up nicely with the temple as if it was surging forth from it.
This was my first attempt to do a blue hour blend for Milky Way shots. The foreground was shot during blue hour after sunset, and the sky was shot a few hours later.
The foreground is a focus stack of three images, and the sky is a stack of ten images to reduce noise.
