Nature never goes out of style.
When you reach the top of your hike and have the place to yourselves 🙌 (for a little bit, anyway)
One aspect of photography that encapsulates me is being able to SEE people and capture their organic beauty. The eye for me is seeing the heart and soul in them. .

Good morning! The photo above is really a calm moment. Have a calm day folks!
Moments that last forever.
Wow wow wow, this weekend was magical ✨ To celebrate 4 years of marriage, Adam planned a surprise weekend for us on the Oregon Coast and he NAILED IT! From picking an amazing destination, somehow pulling strings with Mother Nature for incredible weather, choosing a great mix of hikes in the mountains and on the coast, picking an awesome campsite, feeding me tacos and other delicious food, and taking me to cute coffee shops, everything was oh so perfect. 🌊🏕🌮☕️ I normally hate surprises, but I decided to roll with it this weekend and keep every stop a surprise until we showed up at it, which was so much fun, especially as the person who usually plans out our weekends. It was seriously one of the greatest weekends we have had and our cheeks hurt from smiling so much! 😊
"Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more.” - Victoria Erickson 🌲👣
We left the house as the sun came up and made our way across foggy highways to Mt. Rainier NP. Couldn't let this sunny forecast go to waste! I don't mind a drizzly hike but there is something about breaking through the trees and seeing that glorious mountain! It's simply breathtaking. 💗

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity." - #JohnMuir
Mornings spent with friends are the best.

One of my very favorite words is “autumnal” and few things could be a more apt use of this descriptor than a warm October morning spent wandering around an apple orchard at Green Bluff, whilst Mount Spokane gazes down from the horizon. And of course such a morning can only result in an afternoon of making apple flavored confections.
Don’t be afraid to do what you love, be excited.

I based all my packing assumptions for our hike today in the North Cascades on the weather had last weekend there (this photo is from last weekend which was freeeeeezing at about 20deg F). It was about 75 and sunny when we reached the peak of our hike today so needless to say bringing three jackets and winter gloves was totally unnecessary. Never hurts to be prepared though I guess! ❄️

Found some pretty roadside larches today.

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
Not to long ago I convinced my friend @minhazrsarker
to get up a bit early and go out shooting some. One of my agendas along our planned morning was to grab some shots of St.Johns Bridge in the early morning before the sun came up.
Funny thing was while I had shot St. John’s before never had shot it being on the bridge. This morning commute is action. •
About St. Johns Bridge:
The St. Johns Bridge is a Gothic-style cable suspension bridge spanning the Willamette River at River Mile (RM) 6. It replaced the last Portland ferry, which ran between Linnton and St. Johns. Work began on the St. Johns Bridge in September 1929, was completed in May 1931, and dedicated in June. It connected St. Johns with Oregon Highway 30, the route between Portland and Astoria. The Tualatin Mountains rise above the western end of the bridge. The bridge was designed by internationally renowned engineer David B. Steinman and Holton D. Robinson, of New York City. At the time of construction it was the longest suspension-style bridge west of the Mississippi with a total length, exclusive of the roads, being just shy of 3,834 feet. The main span suspension is 1,207 feet, with each side span being 430 feet. The towers rise 400 feet and the spires on top are another 50 feet. The center span of the bridge rises 205 feet above the river. The bridge is reminiscent of a Gothic Cathedral. •
