Seattle, Washington! We have called Seattle home for 6 months now and could not have expected how much we would love it. It is spring now and our neighborhood is bursting with color and light.
If you could live in any era of history, when would you choose? The last few years I have dedicated a large portion of my time to getting outside, and the result is, that I wish I lived in the pre-agricultural society of humanity. The time when we spent the entirety of our lives connected to nature. Only possessing the things we could carry, and when places like this would be a source of life. A place to get a drink, take a bath, or fish for dinner. It seems crazy that instead of that, I drove in a climate controlled box back to my other climate controlled box to share this digital image of a place we could have enjoyed together, maybe while talking over a campfire. Maybe it's just the PNW winter giving me cabin fever, but it was especially good to get out the other day and enjoy the blue light on these falls after sunset. I hope you enjoy, and maybe it can temporarily transport you to another time. #mtbakersnoqualmienationalforest #waterfallsofinstagram #waterfallphotography #waterfallwednesday #longexposhots
A goal for 2020 as a photographer is to work on my portrait game. In preparation for my Behind the Shot event coming up next month, I have been combing through my pictures from South America, and came across one of my best portraits ever. This girl was so sweet, she thought it was funny that I spoke Spanish like a "child". I guess I wasn't as fluent as I thought, ha. Should I share more portrait images, or stick to the landscapes? #peru🇵🇪 #sacredvalley #incan #inca #panamerican #southamerica
Do you dream of hitting the road? I'm excited to announce I'll be giving a photography talk at the @mountaineersorg on February 12th where I'll share my adventure driving the Pan-American highway from Argentina (pictured) up to Alaska, and a more recent year long sabbatical touring the US and Canada. I hope I'll see you there and can inspire your to get your adventure on! (Link in Profile) #peritomoreno #calafate #argentina🇦🇷 #argentina_ig #glaciers #iceblue
"Eternity isn't some later time. Eternity isn't even a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now that all thinking in temporal terms cuts off.... the experience of eternity right here and now, in all things, whether thought of as good or as evil, is the function of life."

(19/20) This decade included an appetizer of what the PNW has to offer since moving to Seattle around a year ago. To remedy that, we joined up with @mountaineersorg a climbing club that has been around since sliced bread. Recently, Anna and I were accepted into the Basic Alpine Climbing Class. It's six months of everything we will need to know to get to know these cascades on a more intimate basis. We are scheduled to climb St. Helens and Hood during the class, and with any luck we will add Baker (pictured) and Rainier soon. I am really excited to learn skills that will allow me to take my camera and photography to new heights, badum cha! #cascadenationalpark #cascades #mtbaker #kulshan #mountaineers
