“But I want to be here Truly. Be. Here To watch the ones that I love bloom And I want to make room To love them through and through and through And through the slow and barren seasons too” . @sleepingatlast #enneagram7
A couple of gems from my hike this weekend. I'm gonna miss living among these peaks. #pnw #exploreoregon #mtjeff #bachelormountain #frostedtips
You’ve got to pay the troll toll. 😆🌈🛤
Fall dancing around my feet 🍁👣
The Alberta District in Portland is probably one of my favourite areas we’ve explored on this trip. 💕🤘
It's one thing to acknowledge a higher power & a complete opposite to GIVE yours away to another being equal to you. Love yours. #apttmh

Multnomah Falls. So pretty. 💚👌
One of my favorite pictures @darrellcassell has snapped of me 📸 It just so happened to be at the most beautiful beach I have ever seen.
I just realized that today is October 17th which means it's our 6.5 yr anniversary 😍 I'm so lucky to have found a partner like you so young in life. Our love is deeply special and I am super stoked to call you my fiance 😍
“Ah kindness. What a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in this world” One of my favorite quotes to pair with one of my favorite fall pictures. Fill your day with kindness and love friends 🧡🍂🍁💛 #oregon #oregonnw #oregonlove #oregonlife #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #portland #portlandoregon #portlandia #pdx #portlandnw #kgwweather #jj_oregon #jj_nature #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlove #pnwphotographer #cascadiaexplored #waterfallwednesday #waterfall #longexposure #ig_countryside #waterfallsfordays #ig_waterfalls #earth #landscape #fall #autumn #hiking
I love cool early mornings! That first warm touch of the sun when the air is still crisp...exhaling and seeing billows of your own breath. AAAAAAH I’m just in my element!
True story: I took this row boat out on the lake and couldn’t row it back to shore. My friend swam out to rescue the boat 😂 It’s not as easy as it looks, haha! (also, just discovered the @enlightpixaloop app - it adds motion to your photos and is super fun to play around with)!
Looking out at the mountains from Black Butte.
Happy hump day!
Manza-miata morning
Enjoyed a beautiful hike with the family this weekend on our way back from camping. 🍁
Another happy pair of wine tasters, still smiling after 1.5 hours with winemaker Dave. #gowinetasting #wvharvest2018 #bellsupmoment
...that’s cool...
Multnomah Falls. I visited this site years ago but do not remember much and I definitely haven’t seen anything like this. A fire took this beautiful land over and it has been closed to view for a year. All of the trees half burnt and the hike to the top was closed still. I pray for healing on this land and hope the water replenishes the ground for everything green. #waterfalls #multnomahfallsoregon #ahnufootwear #exploreoregon #oregonwaterfalls
walking into the office this morning

First fish on a skater. Thought it was a steelhead when it hit the surface and then peeled line off my 7 wt but nope. Just a 🐷 trout that had a tummy full of giant October Caddis! @stlhd_gear @pnw_landing_nets 📷 @loui.alva
They aren’t that tall and they’re not particularly majestic but there’s something about these #sisters .
Tiny moon
Can’t get enough of this lovely autumn weather! 🍂🍁🍂
Another long travel day for these 2 coming up but as the cooler suggests ... next stop the S. OR coast ... Bandon for the next 2 nights !!! #exploreoregon #maxthepuppytakesasabbatical
I’m noticing a theme in my recent posts: I tend to post big to small. A large epic scene of mountains usually captured with my drone, followed by a medium perspective usually within that scene such as a waterfall or a grove of trees, then a small almost macro perspective like today’s image. This is often how I see the natural world and also how I scan new locations for possible compositions. This leaf caught my eye from far down the path. It was beaming yellow light, backlit from the sun, and laid upon a bed of smaller green branches about 20ft in the air. I was zoomed to almost 100mm to capture it fully framed. Almost looks like it’s under a microscope, doesn’t it?!
Everything about fall makes me happy. Im getting excited to be back in Bend, OR this weekend for the @nwasap 2018 conference and to enjoy some more of this beautiful fall foliage! • #fall #fallleaves 🍁🍂 #nwasap2018 #pnwonderland #pnwlife #trees #happiness #naturelovers #exploreoregon

Moody mornings on the Oregon coast ☕️

Good morning Portland! ☀️ This photo is proof that there’s not much I won’t do to get my shot...like pull my car over, run down the sidewalk, climb over a railing, and crouch in a private yard just to photograph this fleeting scene. The home owner even came out, coffee mug in hand, to see what the fuss was all about 😬 ☀️ Yup, getting caught red handed by a complete stranger was still worth it. #alwaysgettheshot ☀️ . . . #sunrise #portlandsunrise #portland #morning #orangesky #downtown #pnw #downtownportland #exploreoregon #klikconcepts #gettheshot #horizon #oregon #goexplore #cityscape #morningsky #portlandphotographer #pdxphotographer #travelportland #portraitofportland
Water is life, especially for these surfers. Do what you love and explore. . . . 📷 @rico.shots beautiful shot
almqvistersoll and I found #Abiqua falls today! 👍 #nature #travel #oregon #exploreoregon
I had been smashed by a giant wave seconds earlier. Soaked in my jacket and pants I stripped down to my compression shorts so I could still move. As I was waddling back up the beach to my car I noticed a someone with a huge camera. "I wonder what rig is!" I wondered. As I approached to ask them, we made eye contact. This person had a look of shock! Realizing I was practically naked I understood there reaction and hastefully turned the other direction 😅 I wonder if one day I can thank that person, for indirectly encouraging me to capture this view. 📸
Toketee Falls, Oregon August 2016 #waterfallwednesday . . After a well shaded 1.2 round trip hike, you get to this picture perfect view of Toketee Falls. From here, you can then scramble down a steep cliff side to the bottom part of the falls and pool of water . . . #oregon #exploreoregon #chasingwaterfalls #toketeefalls #toketeefallsoregon #toketeefallstrail #hiking #ventureout #getoutside #thetrek #takeahike #idhikethat #rei #reiproject1440 #wanderlust
"Can you see the sunset real good on the West side? You can see it on the East side too." --SE Hinton Sunsets make me think of my favorite quote from The Outsiders. Reminds me that as much as we try to label each other and point out differences, there are some truly basic similarities among us. #sunset 🌅 #nature #exploreoutdoors #explorenature #exploreoregon #quotes #theoutsiders #loveoneanother #peace #hatebreedshate #seethroughthehate #werethesameperson #pdx #oregonlove #sehinton #ponyboy
