Ice cracked beneath my feet as I slowly made my way further and further from shore.-
“If only I could make it around this corner” I thought to myself, as I continued to weigh the outcomes.-
On one hand, my shoes for the day were @chacofootwear
and if I did go through the ice, they would be just fine. On the other hand, the farther I pushed the boundaries, the deeper the water would be. My camera came first for this excursion and I knew I needed to be somewhat sure of my chances.-
Just a couple more feet and I would have the perfect angle. Little by little I gained the ground I wanted...-
“SNAP” the subtle sound of my shutter was like a thundering boom in that moment. My senses were on high alert as I snapped the photos I had come out for. Finally, after a couple snaps of the shutter, I turned around and made my way back to shore. Satisfied with the risk.
One of my favourite places in the U.S. 💦😍 - Utah, United States of America
***** Happy Waterfall Wednesday *****
Throwing it back to May in Utah and one of my favourite waterfall hikes I have ever done. *
Been daydreaming about the US and photography this week, I’ve spent a fair bit of time in summer there escaping Australia’s winter, but I think I need to get back there and experience so different seasons, fall and winter next time I think.
Love this spot, let me know your thoughts below🔥😍😎🤩

We were happy to have the Corbridge family last week!
The Salt Flats can be squishy and gross (the Mud at the Great Salt Lake has so much dead organic matter in it it has a rotten smell). But the glassy reflections can really make an overwhelming sunset.
Dope photo of me I got from @peterjansphoto
from back when it was a bit warmer.
My sister asked me if my friend and I were training for an iron man after seeing a post about me pulling my child in a sled up the Millcreek winter road. I’m actually training for a yurt trip that I’ll have to pack myself, my toddler and all our supplies in. Planning on taking a sled to help lighten the back pack load. I’ve never carried all my overnight gear before. I imagine it would be easier if I practice. I am going to do a test run w the entire load before the trip. Work out the kinks. On a side note, the hill by Elbow Fork on the Millcreek road is bomb dot com to sled down. I enjoyed myself a little too much. On another side note this pic is my #humansherpa

headed towards the second peak w toddlers in tow. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻#utahpeakbaggers #wasatchpeakbaggers #wasatching #wasatchmountains #slc #801
Just a light dusting of snow in Monument Valley. Most of your incredible landscapes are easily accessible during the winter months.
Beautiful sunrise hike with some lovely ladies this morning and Casey even made a new friend! #naturalutah #optoutside
The Watchman, Zion National Park
One of my favorite adventures of 2018, I can’t wait to go back. This was shot using live composite mode on the @getolympus
OMD EM1 Markii which takes a base exposure image and continuously shoots only adding the brighter pixels to the image and you are left with one RAW file.
M.Zukio 7-14 mm 2.8 lens

Intimidating morning view of the most dangerous and most popular trail in @zionnps.
Very happy to have conquered it with my hiking group back in May.
Hey, guys! It's been a minute since I last posted (school, work, grad school applications, other projects--you know the drill). Thought I'd throw up a recent edit for you to enjoy, however. As some of you know, I do a calendar every year with images from that year. Normally I'm on the ball and get them ordered by the beginning of December, but this year I've been so swamped I haven't even gotten around to designing them until now. Can't guarantee they'll ship before Christmas, but if you're interested in snagging one for next year, send me a DM and I'll get you a price and stick you on the list. Thank you always for your support and hope you all have a Happy Holidays!
Here’s a fuzzy green ball also known as Comet Wirtanen/46p taken from my backyard a couple nights ago. This thing is cruising through space at about 6 miles per second. You can also see the Pleiades star cluster in the top of the frame.
I swear they are posing for me. Bull Elk in the morning.
Having way too much fun in Utah 🤙🌵🏜
Swipe to see the color version.⠀
A little #dawnpatrol
this past Saturday with @suedeonfilm
Always fun to go and shoot with others who are out to have a good time, get some fun shots and just enjoy each others company.⠀
In a previous conversation with @suedeonfilm
, he mentioned something he had been doing on another platform and I thought I would throw my hat in the ring here in the Insta. #monochromemonday
is in full swing.
Where is your adventure taking you?
Swipe Left for more! Monument Valley. 14 vertical images with a 35 mm lens. Continuing my panorama binge. 😀 Top 60, counting down, No. 43. I love panoramas and they are a major part of my photography, but for a long time I mostly avoided posting them on IG because it’s hard to do them justice here. They are just too small. I have finally just decided to go ahead and post them anyway. There will be several versions of each, a regular version, a swipe left version, a short video version. Hope you enjoy! Wayne
Zion in the mist. A lucky chance encounter involving myself, my camera that lives inside my phone and some fog. We were actually on our way home from the Grand when we decided to stop in #Zion
for the sake of breaking up the drive for the kidlet. I take the majority of my photos on the trail when it’s the toddlers turn to explore. Looking back I can see how many things would have gone unnoticed if I didn’t have him to slow me down and make me aware of the beauty all around me. It’s taught me that every stop is an opportunity not an annoyance.
Need to go somewhere warm ASAP! Birthday coming up soon 🔥
Sometimes Mother Nature conspires to make me feel very, very small... I love that about her! 12/15/18
This is a composite panoramic of two images, combined in Lightroom and then processed in On1 Photo. The 24-70 lens I used couldn't quite capture the full magnitude of the explosion so I took two shots, one above the other. Enjoy!
I’ve got some real estate here in my bag - 🤘🏼🇺🇸
Exploring Southern Utah continues to move me in so many ways. The dust, the sand, the simplicity. Something about it all just keeps growing on me and I ain’t complaining.
