I figured that since it's Wednesday it would be good to post a waterfall, and even though I haven't been here a lot this probably one of my favorite waterfalls and this is definitely when there's not much water I really want to go back during winter time especially when there is snow there. #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #livewashington #explorewashington #bestofnorthwest #pnwisbeautiful #upperleftusa #washingtonstate #pnwcollective #cascadiaexplored #pnwisbest #washingtontrails #naturalwashington #thenwadventure #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife #thatpnwlife #visitpnw #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest #northwestcreatives #collectivelynorthwest #kgwweather #northwestisbest #hispnwlife #nrthwst #pnw #staypnw #northwest #choosemountains
Found some more eyes👀. I have a love hate relationship with my job. I love getting to go to so many different places. One day I can be 20 miles into the woods working at a dam and the next be in down town Seattle. The hate part is that I have to work and can't just go around and take pictures. 👀😁📷🌲 . . . . . . . . . .#shotwithpride #justgoshoot @justgoshoot #peoplescreative @thepeoplescreative #exploretocreate #discoverearth #theoutbound #lifeofadventure #pnwadventuresquad #livingourbestlife @ig_myshots #earthfocus #pnwonderland #thatpnwlife #bevisualyinspired #lifeofadventure #stayandwander #wildernessculture #adventureisoutthere #roamtheplanet #eclectic_shotz #awakethesoul #exploreconserveenjoy #wayfarecollective #theNWadventure #collectivelynorthwest #hiking_my_life #ig_vision #hiking_in_space #tripsta_holic #pnwpride #eyes
Morning on the lake
Tea time!🍵 Had to keep this one because of a happy accident in the kiln. #teatime#muglove
Things seem clearer out there, and the more time I spend there the more it feels like home, but gaddurn is the price of living there high. Travel culture thrives on the atmosphere of forced positivity and disparages anyone who feels pinned down by their circumstances. It weaves into the fundamentally bogus narratives our society sells or the roles it glamorizes. How many people I wonder feel at odds with the lifestyles fanaticized by travel culture? That there’s a story we’re all celebrating that they somehow were never given a page to write. I don’t have any good answers, but sometimes I feel suspicious that the photos I share feed into that problematic narrative. This is all to say: I write exhaustingly long captions and while, yes, I do so desperately drag my way towards serene moments as seen in this photo (pictured: Kayla resting bloody toenails)... no magazine cover, Instagram gallery, or cultural narrative should normalize the myths of “adventure”.

City view sky line 👌🏻
Vaux’s Swifts are migrants, and every September thousands of them roost each night in this school chimney. It’s an amazing sight to watch them at dusk swirling around before they enter the chimney! The Audubon Society of Portland estimated that last night we were watching 11,960 swifts! Swipe to see a closer view. . . . . . . . . . #swifts #naturelovers #portlandoregon #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #bestbirds #naturephotography #oregonnw #mykgw #pnwonderland #pdxlife #pnwphotographer #collectivelynorthwest #nature_brillance #northwestisbest #pnwparadise #oregonnature #portlandaudubon #northwestexplored #nature_captures #outinoregon #pnwdiscovered #ig_nature_naturally #oregonnw #instanaturelover #natures_marvels #citysunset #herpnwlife #amazingbirds #ig_sky
It fernally feels like fall, and it’s amazing. 4 days until it’s official. Anyone have any good places to go hike once the leaves start changing? I’ll gladly tag along! 🍁🍂
Layer cake. Taking it all in. Piece by piece.

From our May visit to the Palouse area. Juvenile ravens swooping and soaring, one behind the other, between their nest along the cliff wall to the falls and back. They would fly by so closely you could hear the movement of their wings, and occasionally would do some pretty amazing acrobatic moves as well! Their remarkable variety of vocalizations echoed throughout the canyon and could be heard clearly over the competing roaring falls. ~ ~ #jj_forum_2373 #nature #pnwonderland #blacknwhitephoto #birdsofinstagram
Genuineness, something that is often in short supply on social media. Whether it’s bots handing out cookie-cutter compliments, the toxic tendencies of influencer culture, the follow/unfollow numbers game, or the consequences of photography as a means for content creation... but I keep coming back to it. Sure, maybe I’ve bought into the myth that I’d fail without it, but it’s more than that. Whatever nonsense on here that makes me roll my eyes or tempt me to wipe the app off my phone, I can’t deny that I have met some pretty fantastic folks because of this app, as in genuine in real life folks. And that is valuable. So blinders on, and I’ll keep sharing my work as an excuse to interact with cool people. ——————— #northwestnature #northwestisbest #thenwadventure #pnwonderland #pnwisbeautiful #pnw_compass #pnwdiscovered #thatpnwlife #pnwparadise #getoutstayout #upperleftusa #northwestcreatives #cascadiaexplored #lifeofadventure #artofvisuals #findyouradventure #optoutside #hikevibes #hikingadventures #greatnorthcollective #adventureculture #mountainsarecalling #pnwcollective #collectivelynorthwest #jj_oregon
South Falls
Please don’t tell me summer is over yet! There is definitely a crispness in the air in Seattle, but I’m still hoping for a few more sunny hikes!
Duality. Sometimes when I photograph a waterfall I like to focus in on a particular area rather then try and focus on the whole scene. One of the reasons for this is that you can't always photograph a fall in perfect lighting conditions and sometimes the fall is just a beast that while beautiful to witness in real life refuses to strike that pose for you. This was one such beast... Another reason is that when you start to focus on the individual parts of the falls you are forced to slow down, relax and take it all in piece by piece. You see the intricacies in the formations, how the water responds by leaps and flows and how life is nurtured by it. Including your own. I encourage you all to slow down and just sit in stillness and take it all in. Piece by piece.
It’s Monday morning and my brain hasn’t fully caught up with the new week yet, so I’ve got nothing witty to say 🤷🏻‍♀️
Serenity tea cups😊 #serenitynow #underglazelove
Let’s write a story together. I’ll start it off, and then you add one word to keep it going. Sounds fun, right?! Don’t mess this up. Once upon a time...
Dawes Glacier in the Endicott Arm Fjord ____________________________ Here is another shot from my Alaskan cruise in July. This image was taken from the boat as we did a half dozen 360° spins allowing all sides of the ship glacier views while enjoying their morning coffee. It was a bit difficult to fully enjoy the moment knowing the carbon footprint of our boat being in this remote spot. The lighter rock cliff walls in the image are where the glacier used to be in years past. In research of this post I came across many pics from just 10 to 15 years ago where the glaicer was noticeably larger and stretched further into the bay. ____________________________ Shot Details: 📷: Canon 5d iv, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II Tripod: Induro CLT 203/BHM2S Single Exposure taken in RAW edited in Lr/PS 1/1600, f/8, 140mm ISO 1250 ____________________________ #alaskaphototreks #alaskatribe #alaskanationalparks #naturalalaska #SharingAlaska #alaskacollective #alaskaproud #thealaskalife #ilovealaska #travelalaska #youneedalaska ! #alaskanadventures #alaskanbrewin #ourplanetdaily #theoutbound #shotzdelight #instagood10k #moodygrams #earthables #natureprimeshot #jaw_dropping_shots #viewbug #tentree #earthpride #bestnatureshot #ig_myshots #natures_marvels #artistfound #natural_alaska
Drift Creek Falls trail.
Willamette Park Docks
Oregon Coast.
The day’s gradual fade to night; shadows start their dance across the mountain; a lone mule deer comes out of the woods to drink from a nearby stream; nature’s tranquility.
'The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.' -Anne Morrow Lindbergh ▫️ Photo from @joshmeier.photography ▫️ Selected by @joseph_ehmer ▫️ Join the collection by tagging #collectivelynorthwest - - - - - - #BestOfOregon #oregonexplored #outinoregon #thatoregonlife #thatpnwlife #pnwadventuresquad #pnw #northwestcreatives #northwestisbest #adventureawaits #cascadiaexplored #visualfever #pnwgrammers #naturaloregon #thehikersway #pnw_waterfalls #thenwadventure #youroregon #oregonnw #optoutside #nosmallcreator #exploretocreate #waterfallsfordays #pnwonderland #pnwlife #callingallcreators #upperleftusa #upperleftliving
