You can probably guess from the photo what the highlight of this trip was for me...
Flying low over the Franz Josef Glacier, Fox Glacier, Mt Cook and many other rugged mountains was one of the most stunning and awe inspiring experiences of my life. And somehow we ended up on a private plane. Tears were shed at the beauty of this marvellous earth.

ANIMAIS “CÁ DO MONTI”… (71)
O "Galak" foi o último cão macho que tomou conta da nossa quinta... não sendo caso raro mas sim, pouco comum, era um Rafeiro Alentejano com pelagem totalmente branca, condição que apesar do enorme tamanho com que ficou quando cresceu, lhe garantia a imediata simpatia por parte das crianças com que nos cruzavamos quando em viagem. E às festinhas afetuosas ele sempre respondia com lambidelas que (à altura a que ficava em relação às crianças), correspondiam a autênticas lavagens de cara, eh, eh...
Continua aqui a minha série de "caça fotográfica" denominada "Animais cá do monti"... Todas as imagens desta série foram tiradas nas proximidades de casa, numa mostra do que podemos encontrar naturalmente no dia-a-dia, neste ecossistema alentejano. E embora alguns tenham tido que ser "convencidos" a ficar um pouco mais para a "sessão fotográfica", todos voltaram em seguida para a liberdade, sem queixas de especial...
"Galak" was the last male dog that took care of our farm ... not being a rare case, but, not very common, it was a Rafeiro Alentejano with totally white coat, condition that granted him (in spite of the enormous size with which he was when he grew), the immediate sympathy on the part of the children with whom we cross while on the road. And to the affectionate caresses he always responded with licks that (at the height he was in relation to the children), corresponded to authentic face washes, eh, eh ...
Here continues my series of "photographic hunting" called "OUR FARM ANIMALS" ... All the images in this series were taken near the house, in a show of what we can find naturally in our day-to-day life in this Alentejo ecosystem. And although some had to be "convinced" to stay a little longer for the "photo shoot", they all went back to freedom without any special complaints ...
In this episode, we sit down and chat with a really fun guy (get it? like fungi? aha..ha...), Dr Tom Volk of UW-Lacrosse, and holy cow, pun intended (you’ll see), we covered a lot of ground. Everything from how mushrooms are made, to the best mushrooms to forage, how fungi hunt, fungi in the brain, whether or not bakers yeast is the same organism associated with yeast infections, an underground Gringotts, how to avoid exploding out of both ends, and so much more. Tune in next weekend for part II with Dr Kabir Peay of Stanford University and for our firt ever #CitSciFri featuring Carrie Seltzer of iNaturalist!
I got to play around in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and there’s so much to see! Went there with one thing on my list and came out with about 10 hikes that I now HAVE to do. I will be back!!! 🏔🥾 🏕

Even on our drive to the actual hike you get so many amazing views. Couldn’t help but pull over to snap a shot of this valley with Mount Shark highlighting the backdrop 😍⛰

Had a blast shooting with @omarkaheel12 and @isabel_g6100 today. We got weird at the reservoir but I stayed dry and that’s what counts.

The perfect sesh before, during, and after your sesh. Using your pipe, lighter, and storage we took the tools you’ve always loved and made them more durable, quicker to hit, and resistant to wind, water, and snow so you can get Stoked whenever, wherever you go. 📸 @chadjohnstonphoto #Smokineer#TheStoke

🌴 from Niue - I’m coming back for you and all your coconuts 🥥
Backpacking to Grassy Ridge from Carvers Gap and to my own private mountain island on top of the Appalachian Mountains.
To the east of Carvers Gap is the section of Roan Mountain known as Grassy Ridge, which includes summits of three peaks: roundbald elevation 5826, JaneBald elevation 5807, and #grassyridgebald elevation 6189. The bald area, spanning roughly 7 miles, covers an area roughly equal to 1000 acres.
Hiking 🥾🥾through this section, we bagged our 1st official peak⛰ sb6k. After all the hard work, we were rewarded by finding an unnamed bald all to ourself. Camping 🏕on a mountain top 🏔please tell me if it gets better than this.
Tell me in the comments if you have found a better reward than this. 🌈
Today marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week.
Talking about our mental health and removing the taboo is extremely important.
As many of you know, I have decided to support @mhfnz with my upcoming three peaks challenge.
My decision to support them is based on my own experiences.
In my early 20’s I suffered from social anxiety. It manifested itself in the form of crippling anxiety and fear around any social experience. Tasks as simple as leaving the house to get groceries became huge ordeals.
I took to ‘self medicating’ with alcohol. It was the only way I knew of to help suppress the anxiety. I would drink, just to build up the courage to leave the house or go to work.
This continued for a couple of years until I reached my breaking point. I decided that I didn’t want to live this life anymore and after a series of bad decisions I ended up in hospital.
I had been ignoring the underlying reason for my drinking which was my mental well-being and a condition that I let get the better of me.
I finally made the incredibly difficult decision to talk to someone. I opened up to my Mum who sought the help that I so desperately needed. For the next year, with the help of a psychotherapist, family and friends I worked incredibly hard towards recovery.
I’m happy to say that today, thanks to the help that I received I am 100% free from my condition. A condition that felt like a black hole. At my lowest point I saw no light or possibility of recovery, I genuinely didn’t think I had any chance of getting better, until I finally spoke to someone. Opening up about my condition was the first step on my road to wellbeing.
That chapter of my life is one that I don’t talk about often, especially not on social media, however by sharing experience I hope I can help at least one person.
If you’re struggling with a mental illness, anxiety, depression or just generally feeling down, talk to someone. It is the first step towards recovery and one that if I hadn’t have taken I probably wouldn’t be here today.
It really is ok to not be ok so reach out to someone close to you. Even message me if you like, I’m always happy to lend an ear.

Taking in the view over Kvalvika Beach in Lofoten 😍 On our hike up the rain started pouring, and all the tourists fled the mountain, so we were there almost all alone and just in time for the sun to come back 🥰 Definitely a day to remember ❤️ #iphonevideo#ryten

When I was younger I wanted to be in front of camera, acting and being photographed. I dreamt about being as beautiful as selena gomez. I loved how flawless girls acted in front of camera, how beautiful they looked and how much fun they seemed to have. growing older I was amazed by their confidence and that they looked great no matter what situation they were in. I saw photos of girls in magazines and I always wanted to be as cute & as beautiful as them. but finally standing on stage acting or in front of camera I wouldn’t be as amazed as I imagined to be. of course I loved acting, being someone else on stage. but it wasn’t meant to be the right for me. when I saw videos and photos my parents took I never looked like those cool and beautiful girls I saw on TV or in magazines. growing older I realized that I didn’t want to be the girl that other girls look up to because of their beauty or confidence. I changed my view on certain things. I wanted to make people feel the way I wanted to feel. so I grabbed my camera and asked girls, my friends and my sisters to model for me. I captured them exactly the way I saw them, natural & beautiful. I tried to focus on capturing them laughing, being truly happy. I tried to give them some of my positivity which had developed throughoutughout the years. I started realizing that everyone is different and equal & most importantly beautiful in their own way. I became aware of the fact that being beautiful is not measured on the way you look, your size or the way you dress. no being beautiful is measured on the way you act, the way you treat people and the way you see the world. becoming a photographer made me understand that I don’t want to be kept in mind because of a beautiful face or great body shape. no I want to be remembered because of the way I make people feel, I want to be called smart and gently rather than pretty. I want to be called hilarious & affectionate. I want people to feel great while being around me. I don’t want to be in front of camera anymore, I want to show people their raw beauty, I want to make them happy & hopefully that’s what they keep in mind when they think about me & my photography.
