The hike to Druid Arch is as epic as the arch itself. The views along the entire route were amazing. The terrain kept changing, there were obstacles and challenges throughout, this one was an adventure from start to finish.
Ben carved this long stretch of road in western Utah for over 2 miles before stopping. Such an epic end to our trip last week. #naturalutah #werutah

I’ve been on many hikes in my life, but today did my first towards the @hiker_babes 100 hike challenge! 1/💯! Hiking Navajo Loop + Queens Garden trail in Bryce National Park #hikerbabesorg100 #journeyto100

Made it just in time, after a long day of adventures (shout out to @alvinwong89 and @imeldaoctaviana ), to watch the beautiful sunset at Dead Horse Point 🙌🏻 January 2018. @SonyAlpha 7R II | (var speed) | f16 | ISO 100 | 24 mm
Waking up to this view for the weekend wasn’t too shabby🏕 . . . . #utahisrad #utahillustrated #escalante #werutah #hikrlife #werutahgirls #yesvisitutah #youtah #naturalutah #onlyinutah
This exposure was a test shot to get my camera set up with my desired composition. So the ISO is around 51,200 and the exposure only lasted ~5 seconds. But with the randomness of the cosmos, sometimes, out of the blue, incredible perfection will seemingly appear out of chaos. What an incredible and seemingly almost impossible event to have this fireball of a meteor fly exactly in the middle of my shot AND right down the middle of the Milky Way! Such an incredible happenstance. Sometimes such rare events take place in a person’s life. Sometimes we allow them to mean something. Sometimes we blow them off as nothing and of no significance or remembrance. But to me, either way, I am very grateful that I was able to not only witness such a large fireball with my own eyes but also capture it in this photo as it burned up. . . 1) #Myphototrips 2) #Focusing_on_nature 3) #nightphotography 4) #igpodium_night 5) #global_photos_ #vanguardworld 8) #beyondbeautifulworld 9) #everything_imaginable 11) #Purplepassport 13) #pix_n_pieces 14) #longexpohunter 15) #WeRUtah 16) #hobohUSA 17) #traveling_night 18) #wowutah 19) #IGUtah 20)#visitutah 23) #igsouthwest 24) #westbysouthwest 25) #newmilkyway 26) #canonusa 27) #naturalUtah 28)#night_shots_ 32) #MilkyWay_photography_ 33) #NSE_Dusk 34) #_capture_the_world_ 35) #astrocreatives 36) #experiment_therapy
We have been wanting to hike the Narrows at Zion National Park for years and we finally were able to hike it this weekend. Winter is the prefect time to check out the Narrows—you will find less crowds, and if you rent a snazzy dry suit, you will stay warm and dry, too! We loved hiking through the chilly water, and the peace and quiet on the trail made for the perfect day. Plus, the scenery was fantastic! #instameetstgeorge @atozion
Foamy shores of the Great Salt Lake. Ever wonder why this happens? The foam is created by surfactants produced by the abundant phytoplankton algae that live in the Great Salt Lake. These surfactants are kinda like soap and they lower the surface tension of the water so when the waves create bubbles, they stretch when reaching the surface rather than popping like they do in fresh water. They then collect on the waters surface and higher winds push them to shore where they collect together to form massive foam waves. This lake is pretty damn cool. . #wowutah  #Utahgram  #onlyinutah #weRutah #igutah #youtah   #xputah  #utahillustrated #utahisrad #naturalutah #utahstoke  #WanderInUtah #greatsaltlake #friendsofthegreatsaltlake #waycoolshots #nature_skyshotz   #sky_brilliance #sky_hues #moodskyshotz #bns_sky #rsa_light #best_skyview  #ig_skysun  #ig_skyvibes #cloudzdelight  #cloudstagraeme #pictureline #sunsetstream
Sunday quad day. I am in awe of the beauty! #naturalutah

My roommate was awesome and came with me on a small afternoon hike after working all day on my essay. I’m so grateful that this is my backyard and that I have some amazing people to share it with. #utah #utahgram #naturalutah #bellscanyon
He’s thinking that view is pretty nice, but this place is a whole lot more fun when there are chipmunks to chase and a thousand lakes to swim in...
Busted.... We came across a small band of horses that were particularly skittish. I tried to be inconspicuous from behind an outcropping of rocks but the stallion was on to me... #canon 5D Mark IV #tamron 150 - 600mm G2 #equinephotography

“Common in” they said, “the waters great” they said ❄️
I like to get high...NO DRUGS INVOLVED! #mountains
That’s something very unusual for Utah, when you can hike in the middle of February without any snow on the ground 😊 ~ Довольно необычная картина для севера Юты в середине февраля, никакого снега во круг, хайкали сегодня как если бы это был разгар весны 😄
Posting two images. Commission of a sister and brother. Telling the tale through paint of their coming of age. Where “Sammy” is the free spirit, “Cole” is rooted in nature. Sammy is painted with loose abandonment and water abounds, Cole has massive amounts of earthly elements throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing both of them, through images provided by their mom, as we talked about what was important and to include in the piece. Luckily I was given a green light to “do my thing and I think I succeed. Cole’s piece is 30” x 36”, Acrylic and mixed media on wood. The entire piece was to depict a young man, and intuitively the paint directed me to what was important and what was not needed. Especially in the three figures, clearly the same person, two of them wearing his great grandfather’s Stetson hat.  I played with the medium to recreate the granite, the desert, the mountains, the red rocks and organic flow and layers found throughout the trails in Southern Utah and Colorado. Sammy’s art is three separate 12” x 12” panels, acrylic on wood. The inspiration came from Sammy, as she did her thesis on the David Fincher palette, which became the starting point for her portrait. Also included is her love of the island she now resides, Menorca, Spain.  Her amazing energy will always resound with her as I strived to capture these best of times that will define her soul.

It’s always a bonus to find puddles in places like this.
No photoshop necessary. Loved this hike, this view & the company SO much ❤️❤️ #calfcreekfalls #capitalreef #utahisrad #naturalutah #hikeutah
Tonight‘s sunset over the Lone Peak Wilderness Area in the Wasatch Mountains. #visitsaltlake #saltlakecity #wowutah #utahisrad #utahunique #utahtravels #werutah #beutahful #naturalutah #visitutah #skiutah
Ferguson Canyon was an unexpected treasure today. So many interesting ice sculptures leading to a cool rock overlook of the city. A hidden gem for sure.
Tonight’s sunset over the Wasatch Mountains, with Lone Peak catching the last bit of light for the day. #visitsaltlake #saltlakecity #wowutah #utahisrad #utahunique #utahtravels #werutah #beutahful #naturalutah #visitutah #igutah #lonepeak

Congrats to @erikaoutsider ! Make sure to tag us and use #np10k for a chance to be featured on your national park posts 🌎🐻🍁🌲 Also, tag people in the comments who you think deserves a feature 😁 Selected by: @brittlichty__ . . . . Repost from @erikaoutsider using @RepostRegramApp - I’ve always found it interesting how little details can make a big difference. How the little things can add up to a lot. How little steps can make progress toward big dreams. - Sometimes I get caught up in my dreams and idealistic view of the world and my place in it, and it can be helpful to just take one day at a time and think about what small, brave steps I can take today or tomorrow to make progress. - What are your dreams? And what will you do next to make progress? 💖 . . . . #UtahUnique #utahisrad #VisitUtah #youtah #naturalutah #weRutah #utahgram #utah #wowutah #letskeepitwild #igutah #indybrand #WeLiveElevated #MadeWild #WeAreLimitless #DoingThings #IGSouthwest #FindYourPark #RadParks #BryceCanyon #agameoftones #heatercentral #earthfocus #nakedplanet #roamtheplanet #artofvisuals #stayandwander #wildernessculture

You coming? • Yup. • Deer are prolific. Every country, every state and in all seasons I've seen, these creatures are always there. These two deer were the most comfortable my presence I have ever seen. It seemed they did not see me as a predator. I do love deer meat, but they were correct; this time I was not a hunter but a photographer. • ISO100 200mm f/2.8 1/1250sec • #deer #escalantenationalmonument #westbysouthwest #yesvisitutah #wowutah #igutah #naturalutah #ourwild #optoutside #getoutdoors #hiking #hikeutah #utahisrad #exploreutah #iloveutah #utah #travel #adventure #explore #naturephotography #instanature #utahphotography #utahunique #lifeelevated #igsouthwest #utahgram #utahspots #utahisawesome #in2nature
Who doesn’t love seeing the light rays break through the clouds and light up parts of the landscape.
Moab is cool 🏕✌🏻🏜
BUT THESE VIEWS 🙊 We’re in awe of Moab 🏜
A storm is finally coming! But first, a look back to last week's generous sunset. . . February 8, 2018
"After all," Anne had said to Marilla once, "I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string." -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea Week 7: We made the hike harder than it needed to be but we saw prettier views. #yearofhikes #week7
I’ve been so busy with my portrait photography, I’ve slacked on my landscape photography. So here is a fun shot I got with my @lensball
Beautiful day for a hike above Bear Lake.
Utah, I see you. Your beautiful depth, your wild landscapes painted with all the earthy tones, the desolate canyons with only the breeze flying and flowing its way through all the cracks and crevices creating beautiful magical sounds. Your curves and waves and all the life that thrives in you. The soaring birds against your blue skies, all the contrasting colors and shadows with the powerful sunshine that beats down on you. You're a magical place Utah. The more I see you, the more I fall in love 😍✨💚✌🏻️🌞🌅🌌🌵🌾 #whatisthislife #beaUTAHful #lifeoutside #desertadventures #gratefulAF #liveauthentic #natureheals #deadhorsepointstatepark #utahisrad #utah #utahunique #naturalutah #wildernessculture #liveoutdoors #neverstopexploring #keepitwild #getoutstayout #thegreatoutdoors #welivetoexplore #natureaddict #liveyouradventure #optoutside #wildernessbabes #wildernesslifestyle #visualsoflife

I’ve been home stuck with a broken arm since Monday, and just had surgery yesterday. So here’s a picture of better times in the warm summer sun in Utah and not broken! 🌻✨🤘🏼💜🤪 . . . . . .#naturalutah #moab #utah #deadhorsepoint #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful #visitmoab #visitutah #nationalgeographic #pictureoftheday #iphonephotography #travel #traveller #travelgram #youtah #utahisrad #optoutside #wanderlust #explore #weareutah #dailypic #getoutside #photography #hits_by_travel
