"Rocky Mountain Summer, Nymph Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park, Larimer County, Colorado" - © David Broome
Morrill County, Nebraska. I've been studying lately how the landscapes of our youth greatly affect the way we relate to the world. Barry Lopez wrote: "The land gets inside of us; and we must decide one way or another what this means, what we will do about it." This is a throwback image from a shoot I did with Sid Miller, my brother in law. Sid was a funny, kind, thinking person --yesterday we celebrated his life.
California coastline never disappoints. Santa Barbara in central California impresses not only with its beaches but also with the stunning Santa Ynez Mountains in the back. Upscale boutiques and restaurants, Mediterranean-style white stucco buildings make for a nice vacation spot. @visitsantabarbara @letsnailmoscow . . ***** . . #california #coastline #pacific #californialifestyle #beach #travelblog #travelblogger #adventure #adventuretraveling #abenteuer #instatravel #travelgram #nature #amerika #landscape #amazing #beautifuldestinations #bucketlist #roadtripusa #visittheusa #usa #americanwest #spiritofthewest #10yearsspiritofthewestmagazine #10jahrespiritofthewestmagazine
Blown away by the beauty of Dinosaur National Monument! It was well worth the long drive to Harpers Corner and the short hike in snow in 23°F (-5°C). *** ⏩ LINK IN BIO to our latest video is on hiking in colorful aspen covered mountains in Park City, UT. Follow our big road trip adventure on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. *** #hiking  #landscape  #landscapephotography  #hikingadventures  #getoutside  #withinhikingdistance  #hiking_hobby  #wilderness  #dinosaurnationalmonument  #goparks  #nationalpark  #nationalparkweek  #wethriveoutdoors  #getoutside  #colorado  #ColoradoOutdoors  #ColoradoLive  #naturalcolorado  #southwest  #americanwest  #americansouthwest  #westernUSA  #harperscorner  #coloradolife  #coloradogram   #viewsfromcolorado  #andcolorado  #rockymountains  #greenriver  #yampariver  #utahlife
Finally back out west! Landed in Vegas last night and did some hiking in the Valley of Fire this morning, including through a small slot canyon. We saw petrified wood, petroglyphs, four Gambel's Quail and a herd of Bighorn Sheep! Then a few miles outside of the park we saw a Greater Roadrunner! 😸 #nerds #selfie #iloveselfies #couples #couplesofinstagram #couplesselfie #couplesthathike #girlsthathike #girlswithglasses #nomakeup #hike #adventure #nevada #nv #hikenevada #discovernevada #west #americanwest #valleyoffire #mojavedesert #desert

Down by the corrals. 🤠 4 hours in unseasonably ❄️❄️❄️ cold South Dakota morning weather. I earned that Santa nose. 🎅🏼 #sharecsp #hifromsd #discoverblackhills #custersouthdakota #buffaloroundup
Rolling through the open roads and red rock of southern Utah.
“All good things are wild and free” - Henry David Thoreau Didn’t see a whole lot of wildlife while I was in the Tetons, but got really lucky and spotted the buffalo herd crossing the road just as I was headed out of the park! • • • #grandtetonnationalpark #wherethebuffaloroam #tetons #grandtetons #natgeoyourshot #landscapephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet #amazingplanet #buffalo #mountainview #mountainsandvalleys #visitwyoming #igmountains #igwyoming #igwildlife #natureshots #magestic #beautifuldestinations #mountainscenery #gtnp #instanature #wildwest #americanwest #wildlife_shots #staywild #wildandfree #todsl #thatswyoming
Cold outside? Play in the hayloft!
White Rim trail was a definite highlight of our #endlessadventure trip! Both @pietrinamannino and I are already trying to figure out when we can return to this incredible landscape. Now that we know what to expect, we will give ourselves at least 3 nights on the trail, and more if time allows. For me, this was a completely unique experience. The complete lack of people as far as the eye can see, in all directions for 3 days is simply freeing to the soul! I call it nature therapy, but I really think it's important to get away from our electronic civilization occasionally. It really helps me keep things in perspective. If you're wondering why the campsite glows orange at night, #hardkorrlighting set us up with dual colored light bars. The orange light helps reduce bugs, surprisingly the white rim trail had a lot of flying insects, probably because of its proximity to the Colorado river. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #exploretocreate #earthroamer #camplife #getlost #nature #liveyouradventure #americanwest #bucketlistdestinations #explore #teamtepui #canyonlands #rooftoptents #yeti #gobiracks #ARB #tepuitents #warn #adventure #astrophotography #nightphotography #stackhousephoto #rcioffroad #darksky #NPS #nationalpark #milkyway #shawnstackhouse #exploreutah

The concept of a creek hike was just strange to me, now after exploring the hike, it's actually one of my all time favorites! The first mile or so is on a dry trail that leads to the creek, then it's time to splash down the hill until the waterfalls come into view. There are 3 waterfalls on the hike, so a little rock scrambling is needed to go around the falls. The water is only ankle deep in the majority of the creek, with a few knee deep pools throughout. Anyone wanting to cool from the heat of the desert while exploring #capitolreef should remember this awesome hike!

Still working my way through these shoots with the Z. Loved having this car in a real city this past summer. Sad I'm slowly getting her in winter mode. #300z #z32 #nissan #nismo #photographer #sanfrancisco #California #americanwest #travelers #travellife #wild #outdoors #beach #sunrise #landscape #landscapes #travel #roadtrip #roadkings #river #GOBIG #travel #artists #nikon #photo #simplicity #simplelife #yosemite #California #bangers
Don’t mind the star trails. It was freezing outside and I thought of this shot last minute before going inside. Looks like a river of stars or something, right? Anyways, I guess I’m working on captioning posts from here on out. More engaging, maybe? We’ll find out. Maybe it’s better to keep quiet on this but, my mental state isn’t quite the best right now — hasn’t really been anything else as of late but; I’m getting there. Improvement I mean. At least I think so? I hope so.
Last image from an unfinished series on western towns. Thinking about revisiting this body of work. . . . . #manifestdestiny #americanwest #contemporaryart #zoning #newtopographics #newaesthetic #photography #viewcamera #4x5 #staybrokeshootfilm #subjectivelyobjective #vernacular
Ole Bessie and I exploring the American west. So grateful for such a trusty steed to carry me and be my companion off the beaten path.
I never got a chance to post this from when I went to the Black Hills, The Crazy Horse Monument is spectacular. The sheer size of this sculpture is mind blowing and It’s definitely one of the wonders of the world. Considering It’s all privately funded and a project started by Korczak Ziolkowski over 50 years ago and still maintained by his family today. http://crazyhorsememorial.org/ #crazyhorse #crazyhorsememorial #crazyhorsemonument #firstnations #americanwest #travelphotography #travelgram #wanderlust #amazingearth #earthpix #humanrace #natgeo #scuplture #sculptures #artistsoninstagram #polishsculpture #polishartists

"Into the Sierras" 16x20, oil in canvas, 2017. Since I'm unable to paint much for a few more weeks here's a #repost of an older piece. Inspired by 19th century painters exploring the American West. ------------------------------------------ Available!
